The White House – Daylesford


Based in Melbourne, Australia, Interior Design duo Gardener & Marks, have succeeded in creating homes that are industrial yet cozy, quirky and vintage yet totally en vogue. They have used my absolute favourite colour palette with lots of grey, red, black and beige thrown together. Enamel factory light shades, chalkboard walls, rustic wooden tables, and tufted ottomans are all elements which add to the Anglo feel of these properties which couldn’t be farther away from old Blighty! Perhaps they are going for a nostalgic colonial feel.

This pretty guesthouse in a place called Daylesford, Victoria, with its “unique tailored linen for each individual bedroom, 1930s club chairs, vintage collection of antique furniture and artworks, industrial lighting, a rare French chandelier, and Deborah Bowness hand-painted wallpaper” is a far cry from the horribly musty and overcrowded hostels I stayed in when I travelled around Oz. I would definitely have to check this place out if I ever ventured back to the other side of the world…
