I published this post a couple of weeks before Christmas but I was a bad girl. I broke a press embargo but now that it has been published in Country Style magazine it’s time to feature this amazing holiday getaway again. An absolute must stay.
Introducing Room + Board the latest in the stable of fabulous accommodation properties by stylist and decorator Lynda Gardener. The purpose built open plan barn in the Victorian country town of Daylesford is part warehouse, part greenhouse and totally delicious. The perfect getaway for couples or single guests in Gardener’s signature style you can book here.
I love seeing how designers live. Case in point, the converted East London warehouse of Rachel Chudley. Her creativity and love of textures, colours and patterns in completely random pairings makes her home an absolutely feast for the eyes. (Photos: Paul Massey)
I’m chasing the dream in the Melbourne suburb of Brunswick where a warehouse conversion with separate studio at the rear has caught my eye. The unimposing gray facade provides no clues as to the industrial meets textural, monochrome with a hint of coastal interior. Shouldn’t work you’d think but what could have been a stark interior is warm and welcoming. Bonus is if I buy it you can come visit and stay in the cute as a button studio. Link here while it lasts.
If you like your warehouse conversion more traditional, all industrial features,beams and brick then this one is for you. I’m real estate scrolling in Leichhardt just one suburb over from our last house. Love the central atrium with its outdoor shower (or is that just a piece of art?), the bathtub and all that glass. The architect is Petar Danicic. So having seen the two different warehouses which one is your favourite. Link here while it lasts.
It’s a dream that many of us hold … to live in a converted warehouse. The exposed beams or brick, that industrial feel, the space! This charming home started life as a factory in the 1890s but its conversion (designed by architect Micheal Muir) is less industrial and vast open spaces, more intimacy and sanctuary. I’m real estate
strolling scrolling in the Sydney suburb of Annandale and I’d move in in a heart beat. Link here while it lasts.
