Did you love the home in last week's sneak peek inside the pages of Inside Out? It's the Daylesford home of interior designer Kali Cavanagh and you can rent it for a getaway. I'm thinking girls weekend. You in? Vintage House Daylesford.
I knew it was time. I had sweaty palms, a slight headache, a dry mouth. I was hanging out ... for my favourite interiors magazine. I knew it was time for the latest edition of Inside Out when an email from Lee Tran Lam, Managing Editor arrived in my inbox. I knew it would be a sneak peek at one of the fabulous homes in the March issue. I just knew it. Here's what she wrote,
It's the weekend home of interior designer and stylist Kali Cavanagh – and with a CV like that, it's unsurprising that it's a beautiful, well-furnished space. It's located in Daylesford and has a nice mix of age-worn industrial pieces. She's also added lots of personal touches – courtesy of her toolbox and DIY-savviness. In the bathroom, there's a vanity that's unlike any I've ever seen before. "It was a desk," she says. "I removed the legs, cut down the top and cut a hole for the sink then added one of the desk legs at the front." She also transformed a set of drawers into another vanity, placing brass French mailbox name plates near the handles. (The stylist is Julia Green and photographer Armelle Habib.)
Thought I'd show you the extent of my Christmas decorations for this year. Brass candlesticks, white candles, box of matches. Done! I think I'm over the whole Christmas thing already. I will, however, never be over the whole fire thing ;)
Sitting solidly in the village of Morzine in the Rhône-Alpes region of France is an old wooden farmhouse from 1840. The renovation by Jérémie Koempgen Architecture and FUGA respects the history of the building while creating a modern luxury holiday villa. By piercing the wooden envelope light is allowed deep within. Like yesterday's Yorkshire barn conversion the home is minimalist, its dark colour scheme referencing traditional dark interiors centred round the hearth. Soaring ceilings and hefty beams are balanced by the clean modern lines of the furniture and fittings.
