If I ever get myself to Australia, I’m definitely making my way to The Estate Trentham, a countryside retreat just an hour outside of Melbourne. The three bedroom house, originally built in 1902, was recently restored by design agency Gardener & Marks. Designer Lyn Gardener’s style of mixing old and new, and love of neutral colors, natural elements and raw materials, meant that preserving the house’s original character was paramount in the renovation process. I love the way the rich caramel tones of the lighting and furniture contrast against the crisp white walls. The grey hues, in the form of cement fireplaces and bi-colored walls, are cool and dreamy. And with a vegetable garden and mini orchard on the grounds, and verandas that wrap around the entire home, how can one not feel completely at peace here? Going.
