The Formula One heiress decked out her London abode in style, transforming the plush pad with an array of spooky accessories.

The walls were lined with green foliage and fairy lights, with fake cobwebs draped artfully over the top and beautifully carved pumpkins dotted about.

Passers-by will no doubt get a fright from the eerie window displays, which included black silhouette style witches and pumpkins.

The blonde beauty – who raises children Lavinia, four, and twins Andrew and James Jr., two, with her ex-spouse – has been throwing herself into family life since her split.

She has been relying heavily on sister Tamara following her marriage split.

Tamara, 33, told MailOnline that she speaks to her 28-year-old sibling on the phone ‘500 times a day’, and also ensures that they spend quality time together on a very regular basis.

‘Nothing is more important than family,’ said the mother-of-one. ‘I’m so lucky that my sister is genuinely my best friend. We see each other every day, we speak on the phone 500 times a day. There’s no one in the world that could replace my sister.

It has been months of back and forth between Petra and her businessman ex- husband James during a bitter fight over their estimated £5.5billion fortune.

When their heavyweight legal teams came earlier this month, it emerged the warring pair have agreed what will be one of Britain’s biggest ever divorce settlements.

Speaking after the hearing, Bernie told MailOnline: ‘I’m just glad it’s over. Petra is too. She has been very tolerant and has been concerned about James.

‘Now we are going for a family meal, but we were doing that anyway. No champagne, no big celebration. Just Petra and her sister, me, her mother and the family.’

Neither Petra or James were in court for the short hearing, and details of how their assets will be split have not been made public.

James said after the hearing: ‘I am devastated that my marriage has broken down. I love Petra and our children.’

He said the couple’s ‘most important responsibility’ was now ‘being mother and father to our wonderful children’.

Despite a bad-tempered court hearing earlier this year, at which James clashed with Bernie, a representative for the 35-year-old said he wants to remain ‘firm friends’ with his ex-wife.

At the heated court hearing earlier this year, a judge heard how Mr Stunt had been abusive, violent and took overdoses during his marriage to the glamorous heiress.

The judge warned the pair that being locked in long-running litigation over the split would only make matters worse for all involved.

On being told the parties had come to an agreement today, Judge Robin Tolson QC said: ‘I’m delighted about that and I congratulate both parties.’

Philip Cayford QC, representing James, said: ‘Clearly both parties have come to agreement which is an extremely desirable outcome.’

James and Petra share three children, daughter Lavinia, four, and twin boys James Jr and Andrew, two.
