Rich parquetry flooring and feather-filled velvet sofas add a touch of traditional luxe to the vintage-chic living room. Standard floorboards were eschewed for a show-stopping surface constructed by Williams And Campion from recycled fence palings – it’s as stunning as it is sustainable. Amber pendant lights bought for a song from Geelong Restorer’s Barn add a soft glow in the evenings.
The communal dining table was bought from Industria and is surrounded by replica Tolix chairs from Sokol. The eclectic mix of lights and vases were all secondhand finds.
The dining room’s wonderful storage unit came from an old dormitory at Geelong Grammar School and was picked up on Ebay – with worn scribbles from past students still visible on the timber.
The outdoor chaise lounge was found at Geelong’s Amazing Mill Markets, with handcrafted denim cushions added for extra comfort.
Dreamy, one-of-a-kind recycled doors made from coloured etched glass were a lucky find at the Williamstown demolition yard. The tall blue basket was discovered at The Amazing Mill Markets.
Adding a personal touch to another corner of the home is a handpainted tree, used as a coat rack.
The soft and serene hallway’s simple composition of textured whites and greys, teamed with a pretty recycled console, is proof-positive that a relaxed palette can pack a decorative punch.
The room’s raw linen curtains were carefully selected not only for their aesthetics but for their functional properties. The recycled bedside tables were found at The Amazing Mill Markets.
A framed floor-to-ceiling strip of decorative French wallpaper brightens the walls.
The original bathroom has been updated with a benchtop found on Ebay.
