Happy Friday y’all. My love affair with Australian architecture/design/interiors… basically everything, continues today with an absolute highlight.
It’s the home of stylist Kali Cavanagh who had this 1860s cottage lovingly restored, now sharing it with friends and family as a weekend getaway. Set in Victoria Vintage House Daylesford has a stunning mix of old and new, quirky finds and a wealth of materials on display. Animal skin rugs, rusty iron work, rough wood or smooth marble it’s all under one gorgeous roof.
I love the fact that every room has it’s own character ranging form white Scandi influences in the master bedroom and en-suite to a shabby chic country kitchen with a to-die-for pale blue Chambers oven found in LA.
The living room has a dark and cosy feel reminiscent of an old gentlemens club with brown leather Chesterfield sofa and arm chairs and an antique French cast-iron fireplace above which hangs an original French cafe sign from Côté Provence.
Wherever you look there are eclectic finds from around the world like French stable doors, subway tiles, antique wooden shutters, a vintage fan, a framed Union Jack flag, industrial style pendant lights and a fabulous cast-iron bath.
Kali is clearly a talented interior designer and clever business woman as the house is also available as a location hire for photo shoots. Check out Vintage House Daylesford for more inspiring photographs.
