Vanstone's Roman Renovations

Hiring an Australian chef was just the start:
Ms Vanstone complained that the interior "does look a bit bits and pieces", with lighting and furniture not in keeping with any particular theme.

She said the colours of the paint ranged from "two-tone white-cream banding in the foyer, green in the stairwell, white in the main reception room and apricot in the dining room ... nicely (!) set off by a chocolate library".
The library was reportedly "sinking" (presumably before she set foot in it) but Mandy thought the paint job was a bigger priority. No news about enlarging doorways at this stage...

And I thought DFAT was trying to cut costs?
