'The White Room' - a studio with beautiful one-off vintage pieces

They say that part of the enjoyment of holidays is in the planning. To some extent that's true - but I have to say I've been known to spend hours searching for accommodation that's just right (do you?!). But when you strike upon that perfect place, a real home from home, the anticipation is wonderful! And that's exactly why I was so excited to discover this gem in North Fitzroy, Melbourne (a friend of mine told me I was pronouncing the name all wrong and it should be 'Melben not 'Melboooooourne'!). Anyhooo, The White Room is a simply stunning studio, which as the name suggests, is indeed white and interior designer Lynda Gardner's signature style shines through with a divine mixed of one-off vintage pieces, industrial lighting and layers of pure french linen and handmade sheets. Let's take a tour of this wonderful sanctuary, beautifully captured by Lisa Cohen...

The funny thing is, as much as I'd love to have a trip to Australia planned, I don't! But the key thing is, when I do, the hours of accommodation searching is out of the way - I just need to decide whether to stay here or at one of Lynda's other places I've featured - The Apartment in St Kilda or The Estate Trentham.

Hmmmmm. Tricky!

Could you imagine staying in this lovely studio?

Get the look from The White Room: kitchen - industrial style trolley / cart, glass fronted cabinet, knitted pouf (absolutely love this!), jute rug. Source vintage industrial lighting here. Bedroom: beautiful charcoal grey duvet cover and pillow case and white linen summer blanket, this leather club chair is similar.

Have a wonderful start to the week!

Have yourself a very Scandi Christmas

Yes... I just mentioned the C word and it's only early November, eeeeeek! I love this time of year and come December my home will be festooned with pretty decorations and cosy touches. And this week I made an exciting discovery in the form of NOORVERK. For those of you not familiar with the Danish online store, NOORVERK is a global marketplace dedicated to handmade items by Nordic designers, artists, craftsmen and DIY creatives (sounds almost too good to be true). As you can guess, all the items are unique, high quality, sustainable and of course beautifully simple. I've got my eye on these Christmas tree decorations by Tine Schjelde Møberg and Janne Rosendal...

So lovely, don't you think?

You can find all these items under the NOORVERK Christmas page, or in order of appearance: a selection by Janne Rosendalpaper stars earth collection, leather stag nature, leather reindeer black, xmas bell naturewooden xmas ball, leather snowflake blackxmas balls laser cut veneer.

If you love these you'll also like all the other items on the site - I've got my eye on some of the bags & purses and home & living section. This could be dangerous!

Anything catch your eye? 


This post is in collaboration with NOORVERK. All words are my own and I only work with brands I love and think you will too.
