We Found The Bougie Byron Bay Pad That Zac Efron Has Reportedly Holed Himself Up In – News Lagoon

It may have been said in jest, but that doesn’t mean she wasn’t on to something. On her very first day aboard the Motor Yacht Wellington for Below Deck Mediterranean, second stew Bugsy Drake joked with deckhand Peter Hunziker, “You’re the crew mess creep, aren’t you? You are, I can tell already.” Guess she didn’t have to follow him on social media to pick up on that vibe!

All around, it wasn’t a great episode for ol’ Peter. While Below Deck Med will begin to minimize his appearance on the show as the season continues, he’s still lurking around the boat and causing various degrees of headaches when it comes to the daily operation of the superyacht.

“I feel like Pete hates me. I think he’s used to being in charge,” bosun Malia confesses to deckhand Alex, who we learned in this episode paid for his college tuition via poker games (!). And when the other deckhand Rob came to check in with his supervisor, she told him, “You actually have a higher license than [Pete] does and you’ve been a lot more helpful and respectful on deck,” so it was already clear who was (and definitely wasn’t) succeeding on the exterior team.

But Malia had to check Pete when he pulled in a ground line that he wasn’t supposed to, and then made a comment about putting the “very important” line back on during an aborted departure that did not have Captain Sandy feeling too pleased. “Your sarcasm on the radio did not escape me,” Malia told Pete sternly.

Though there’s a bigger offense taking place on this boat that really irks me. Both Pete and Alex mispronounce Malia’s name (Rob, as in most cases, is excluded from this), and this is already charter three. Shouldn’t they be crystal clear on her name? It’s muh-LEE-uh, and not muh-LAY-uh. I don’t know if she minds, but I certainly do. It’s not that hard to pronounce, guys! They did the same thing with Lara, too, though it seems as though Pete has learned her name at this point considering he’s texting her that he wants her “for breakfast, lunch and dinner.” Hopefully he doesn’t have to point at the menu as the waiter takes his order because he’s too unsure of how to say the dish he would like.

Below Deck Mediterranean airs Monday at 9pm ET/PT on Bravo.

Dashing and Debonair Design: Remembering the Late Paul Fortune – Yahoo Lifestyle

From ELLE Decor

In the world of interiors, Paul Fortune was a cult figure, if not quite a household name. That, like everything about him, was by his own design. The British-born decorator, who passed away on June 15 at the age of 69 at his home in Ojai, California, eschewed social media. He kept a low profile, moving several years ago from his longtime home in Laurel Canyon—the elegant, atmospheric setting where he entertained friends like Rupert Everett, Angie Bowie, Marc Jacobs, and Marisa Berenson—to drop out in the lush hills north of Los Angeles with his longtime companion, ceramist Chris Brock. The ploy backfired. “He tried to disappear, but that only made him more in demand,” says his friend, the designer David Netto. “The more he tried to make himself obscure, the more people were beating a path to his door.”

I met Paul in the mid-1990s, when I worked at Condé Nast’s House & Garden magazine, where he was a contributing editor (and the personal designer to the company’s then–editorial director, James Truman). I had just arrived at the magazine when Paul was assigned to style a story on rectangular glass vessels. In a world of unlimited budgets for sets and flowers, Paul—dapper, with a dry sense of humor and a passing resemblance to David Bowie—ordered a crate of oranges, stacking the fruit into towers and the glass vases into geometric rows. “It’s all about the oranges, isn’t it?” Truman remarked of the simple but genius gesture. Like everything Paul did, the understatement conveyed a perfect sense of cool.

As a designer, Paul put the first vintage Cadillac through the facade of the Hard Rock Café and designed homes for Marc Jacobs, Eileen Getty, Sofia Coppola, and many others. When clients purchased Wilt Chamberlain’s 1970s Bel Air bachelor pad Ursa Major, he jettisoned the pink velvet–lined orgy room but preserved the retractable ceiling above the master bed. Along the way, he appeared in two movies (Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette, as Duc Fortune, and Spike Jonze’s Adaptation), designed music videos and an album cover for the Eurythmics, created a line of Lucite cactus lamps and hand-painted cowskin rugs, and had a hand in two iconic L.A. nightclubs—the Fake Club of the early 1980s, in an old Trailways bus depot, and, with Michele Lamy, Les Deux Café, for which he moved an Arts and Crafts house across the street to create the kind of venue where his friend Joni Mitchell might show up for an impromptu late-night jam session.

Simon Doonan, the author and former creative ambassador at large of the late New York department store Barneys, met Paul in the late 1970s in Los Angeles. “I went to Maxfield, and this friend said, ‘You have to meet Paul Fortune—he is English too,’ ” Doonan says. “Although we were about the same age and only in our 20s, he was bizarrely sophisticated, whereas I was still quite feral and very punk rock. I remember going to his home and watching him effortlessly make boeuf bourguignonne for 25 people. And he brought that same sense of effortless ease to his interiors. He really invented that soigné, eclectic style.”

A Paul Fortune room was filled with dark wood and vintage furnishings, upholstered in leather or subdued stripes, and dimly lit (“Spotlights are the devil’s work,” he would say). His own home in Laurel Canyon—which he documented in his 2018 book for Rizzoli, Notes on Decor, Etc. (an opinionated tome that reads more like an autobiography than designer tips)—was “a laboratory for his evolving ideas on lighting and atmosphere,” Netto says. The ELLE Decor A-List designer was so taken with Fortune’s work that he hired him to codesign his Richard Neutra house in L.A. “People thought it was career suicide, but to me he was more than a decorator. Right now, I’m standing in a room he painted red to go with a tartan rug I picked out—which not too many people would have done in a Neutra house. I remember I was in New York when he e-mailed me and told me he had done it, and that ‘It looks really good.’ He was right.”

If anything epitomized Paul’s style, it was his 2005 overhaul of the Sunset Tower Hotel. The space was as subtle as it was urbane—in the lobby, in the Tower Bar, in Bugsy Siegel’s old apartment—a symphony in quiet beige, with pleated lampshade sconces throwing soft light onto white tablecloths and walnut-clad walls framing city views. “You would go there and see Tom Ford, but it was also a place where you could take your mother out for lunch,” Netto says. “L.A. finally had a dining room worthy of a film noir.”

My last full immersion into Paul’s world was on a visit to Ojai with my family in 2018. At dinner, he had my two teenage daughters enthralled with his stories about growing up in postwar England and his early days in the counterculture in New York and Los Angeles. “You knew Warhol, didn’t you?” I asked. “What were you doing in New York?” “Drugs,” was his nonchalant reply, before he regaled us with his memories and contrarian opinions on everything from politics to the AIDS crisis to drag culture and the recent Ojai fires that had forced him and Brock to flee their home. And design, of course.

Later, he wrote an essay for ELLE Decor’s December 2018 issue on his memories of a childhood Christmas in the north of England—one where he convinced his mother to redecorate the drawing room with trendy chairs and wall-to-wall snow-white carpeting, inspired by Hollywood musicals. “For one shining moment, I was digging Christmas,” he recounted. But then the guests arrived, the Scotch was poured, “Aunt Margot missed her drinks table and dropped her punch,” and the festivities got even more rollicking from there. “The carpet was cleaned after the holidays, and the kids were banned from the drawing room,” he wrote. “It became like a joke to us, a weird mausoleum to that last Christmas. Like a Hollywood set, it was only good for one scene.”

As tributes from friends pour in on the social media he hated (“Anyone can Instagram, but not everyone can cast a perfect spell,” he wrote in his book), it is clear that the sui generis Paul Fortune won’t soon be forgotten. “He was life-enhancing, hilarious, generous, and a visionary,” says Doonan, who last saw his friend for lunch in Manhattan in early March, when they shared some laughs and Paul spoke about the renovation of a Frank Lloyd Wright house in Rye, New York, that he was working on for Marc Jacobs. “As confident as he was, he was never a self-promoter,” Doonan observes. “He was always very languid. He would say things like, ‘I’m doing this little hotel.’ Everything with Paul was easy-breezy.”

Make your home the ultimate hideout with high-quality leather furnishings – Independent.ie

A cowhide or sheepskin is a sort of sequins and tiara for your interior – neutral but lively!

eather itself is one of the world’s most versatile materials, popping up everywhere from fashion, to interiors, to book binding. It’s used to enclose, wrap, protect, carry.

It has all sorts of extraordinary finishes and applications. It was even used when the Clarence Hotel nightclub was redesigned by architect Ross Cahill O’Brien for U2 to provide fire protection and a very sensual finish to the touch on handrails and steelwork.

The interior design world has always loved a good cowhide. It’s the maverick of the leather world, with no two the same. Back in 1927, when Swiss architect Le Corbusier collaborated with two furniture designers to design the ‘LC4’, a chaise longue to you and me, the cowhide on the ‘relaxing machine’ made quite the stir. As for sheepskin, the Swedes have a tradition of gifting them to line the cots of their newborns, but it was in the 1970s that sheepskin last parachuted into chic interiors, thanks to erotic sci-fi movie Barbarella – and a host of lookalike sheepskin sofas began to appear.

The Irish sheepskin is stepping into the limelight at the moment. Its long luxuriant fleece makes a good counterpoint to the clean lines – and sharp edges – of our ash or oak furniture and the simple styles of the Irish cottage style where they’re seen draped over stools, or softening up chairs and floors.

Whether a skin or a hide is good or bad depends to a large extent on the standard of animal husbandry it received which means Ireland has the edge. The same rules seem to apply to hides as to meats – the better the quality of life of the animal, the better the end product.

“The quality of a hide is based on its thickness and appearance,” says Derek McCarthy of Irish Hide Designs, who describes himself as ‘almost a professor of hides’ after decades in the business. “You can also tell if it was well fed, if it’s been outdoors in the wind, the rain. It’ll have a lovely sheen, it’s brighter and more vital looking – it’s from a healthy animal. Store-fed cattle, bred indoors, will have rub marks and bald patches and their skins aren’t as vibrant. I’d say 99pc of Irish cattle are bred outdoors and so you see it in their hides.”

Cheaper hides are likely to have been factory farmed, and can look identical. Take note, bargain hunters.

As for sheepskins, Derek likes to use organic sheep as they have ‘unpolluted’ skins, though diet has a big role to play here too. “You can tell if a sheep has been fed too much turnip by his yellow wool.”

Derek’s company goes back five generations to 1810 when it was first established in Cork as a hide, skin, feather and wool merchants. Each generation of McCarthy has re-invented or tweaked the company to survive – in the early part of the 20th Century, world wars and recession hit the business hard and the family fought to survive. Then there was another market shift four or five years ago, Derek tells me. Up to then, he would visit small butchers around the country to select hides or skins but many of those have disappeared. Now he has a single source in Athy where the specific quality and type of hides he likes to work with are put by.

Two years ago, he made the decision to add value to the skins and hides he traded and set up Irish Hide Designs, using skins from cattle or sheep bred along the Wild Atlantic Way, the only guaranteed Irish ones on the market. You can choose cowhide rugs from, say, Donegal or West Kerry cows, or sheepskins that have been finely cropped or left long and shaggy.

He also offers a range of furniture, anything from cushions to yoga mats – Derek handpicks the fleece for these – or shaggy-legged pouffes. Even leather aprons that are made with the help of Limerick saddler, Trevor Russell. Just the sort of thing for Father’s Day.

Inside Emmerdale stars Charley Webb and Matthew Wolfenden’s incredible home with orange velvet sofas and huge – The Scottish Sun

EMMERDALE’s married couple Charley Webb and Matthew Woldfenden’s rustic home in North Yorkshire is just as chic as the pair.

The actors, who have three children together, have created a gorgeous haven for their sons as they share glimpses of their lives away from the ITV soap on social media.

Photos posted by Debbie Dingle actress Charley reveal their lives outside of Home Farm revolve around their adorable kids, with plenty of playtime and outdoor activities taking priority.

The family live in a traditional brick home, complete with a sprawling garden, huge sofas and a massive picture of David Bowie.

Traditional furnishings fill the living room, including a white book case, fur rugs, coloured sofas and a Moroccan carpet.

Toys are scattered throughout the house, with Charley revealing the kids are given limited access to screens.

The pair share sons Buster, 12, Bowie, four, and 10-month-old Ace, and while they have been grateful to spend more quality time together, they were hoping to enjoy an adults-only getaway to celebrate Matthew’s 40th birthday in May.

While Charley is still out of work and is unsure if she will return to the soap, Matthew could soon be on our screens in brand new episodes as Emmerdale has returned to filming after the Government eased some lockdown restrictions.

The soaps production team has begun a phased return to filming by recording six new episodes.

However, it will not be a return to normal, with the first six episodes shot featuring only two or three characters.

The Sun Online can reveal that bosses hope the six special episodes will bridge the gap between pre-shot episodes and a fuller return to filming and avoid the soap going off air.

Diversification in pastoral enterprises – Mirage News

In Texas, a Nubian Ibex breeding buck and kids bred for the abundant hunting market.

As the recipient of a 2017 Nuffield Scholarship supported by AWI, Felicity McLeod from Wentworth in western NSW has investigated how pastoral wool enterprises can potentially increase income through diversification.

Felicity McLeod was motivated to investigate approaches to enterprise diversity after prolonged drought on her family’s 121,000-hectare beef, sheep and rangeland goat enterprise near Wentworth, NSW.

“If ever there was a time to study diversification in the rangelands then now is that time. However, the drought was not the only driver for my studies; it was also about managing for the future and improving long-term economic viability and sustainability in an unpredictable climate,” Felicity said.

“I returned from my Nuffield research to mustering stock for trucking out. Normally, the task would have been lamb marking and crutching, but in the previous 18 months a large portion of our ewes and lambs and nearly all our cattle had been sold due to a lack of rain.

“Unreliable rainfall is of course not new in the Western Division of NSW. Management of ground cover and the availability of water for livestock use are the main limiting factors facing pastoralists in the region.

Felicity_1_Header.jpg

In Brazil, goats remove the thorns from rope cactus allowing sheep to eat the plant’s flesh.

“At times, goat sales make up more than 50% of the annual income for our business. We also have sections of Popiltah and Popio lakes, which fill following flood events in Queensland and we capitalise on the moisture in the deep clay soils by planting crops on the lake beds.

“I wanted to use my Nuffield Scholarship to explore possibilities for these and other types of enterprise diversification, and to find out the viability of various approaches back home.”

Felicity travelled to Brazil, Denmark, India, New Zealand, South Africa, Qatar, United States and the United Kingdom. She met with farmers who had diversified their livestock enterprises and her report (released in October) details what they considered critical factors for success, along with several challenges and pitfalls.

The report details novel approaches to multi-species diversification including deer, goats and more exotic species. It concludes that while feed and water availability are the first considerations, market access and evaluation of animal behaviour along with the suitability of particular breeds to country type and topography are also key factors.

“In Texas I visited properties where goats complement the grazing of Merino sheep and Angus cattle. Goats fit well into their Merino production system given goats’ browsing habits and palate for trees, shrubs and rougher vegetation. They can also reduce vegetable matter in fleeces and control weeds and brush allowing better grass growth for the Merinos.

“In the Juazeiro region of Brazil, I met a farmer whose in-depth understanding of the local desert plants and interrelationships between livestock species led to successful diversification for his business. Amazingly, his goats remove the thorns from rope cactus, allowing his sheep to benefit from the flesh of the plant, which has a protein content of 8%.

“I met a farmer in Texas who, as well as a running a more traditional enterprise, has also been raising a desert adaptive goat antelope – the Nubian Ibex – which are sold into Texan game parks for hunting. The kids at six months sell for US$2,500 to $US4,000, while adults can make $8,000 a head. At another ranch I visited, hunting licences make up at least 50% of the business income, supplementing its sheep, goat and cattle operations.”

In South Dakota, tallow from a farm’s sheep is used to make soaps and skin products.

The report also details a range of approaches to value-adding, which have allowed producers to turn what was once considered waste product into an alternative revenue stream.

“In South Dakota, USA, I met a sheep meat producer who had started using tallow from sheep to make soaps and skin products, as well as toys and rugs from wool and skins. While a modest revenue stream, the concept of turning waste into a money-making product is appealing and has wider application across a range of businesses,” Felicity said.

The report also explores examples Felicity saw for improving on-farm efficiencies and how to manage predation.

“Ultimately, there are many options when investigating enterprise diversity, and many considerations that must be taken into account prior to commitment. The opportunities are there, but success depends on a well-researched approach which is tailored to the individual’s farm, business, and resource availability,” Felicity added.
