Property Profile: Melbourne Converted Mattress Factory

Here is one for the Shabby Chic Lovers.  This character filled Vintage inspired abode used to be a rundown Mattress Factory and has been lovingly restored to become a veritable ‘Shabby Chic Romantic Rustic meets Rococo French Country’ retreat.  Take a tour with these images and you will be instantly transported into the pages of a Rachel Ashwell Coffee Table Book.  Love or Hate Shabby Chic – this is how you do it well x

Property Profile: Home of Designer Marie Olsson Nylander

I am in lust with the aesthetic of this Eclectic Home belonging to Swedish Interior Designer Marie Olsson Nylander.  It’s a great example of how you can successfully combine numerous decor styles.  In this home it is like there is a marriage of Vintage + Boho + Ethnic + Industrial + Rustic + a wee bit of locational Scandi thrown in.  Phew!   Most of all, I love how it is utterly + effortlessly stylish but also totally family friendly.

It also serves as amazing inspiration to me.  It’s a great reminder that when buying things for your dream home you don’t need to worry about the genre or “matchyness” of the item you just have to adore it.  I think that although Marie obviously has innate style each piece in her home is clearly collected with love + each piece tells a story.
