Colette Dinnigan and her husband Bradley Cocks are set to implement grand plans as international boutique tourism operators.

Underpinned by their popular decor style, they got their start with their two cottages at Milton on the NSW South Coast, but now see glamourous international horizons.

They have secured a 400 year old Puglia, Italy farmhouse (above) which they will be converting into an luxury airbnb offering after its restoration.

It was one of 20 prospective homes they spotted when they spent their year in Italy as suiting their new-found brief.

Puglia is popular with English tourists.

Their yet to be launched Bespoke Homes website suggests they have also quietly picked up a 1915 Darling Point offering which could headline the local rental offerings.

The home was recently listed through Ben Collier at The Agency off market with $6.5 million hopes.

With secluded garden oasis swimming pool, it was once owned by another fashionista legend, Maggie Taberrer paid $710,000 in 1987 and sold four years later for $1.16 million.

Dinnigan, who this month was awarded an AO, is now concentrating on interiors and property development with Cocks.

She reckons the world of interiors is not too dissimilar to fashion.

"It’s about colour, textiles — but it’s something you can do without being on a program like Paris Fashion Week,’’ Dinnigan advised recently.
