my scandinavian home: The Storekeeper’s House


I’ve figured out the most effective way to value summer season in Northern Europe – go versus all gardening suggestions and sow grass at the starting of July. That way each time it rains, you will be tremendous delighted (our recently sewn grass is coming together properly!). Even so, I am dreaming of escaping the chill and travelling to a faraway spot (as enjoyable as it is to observe grass increase). Now, I know it is really wintertime proper now Down Below, but that isn’t going to halt me from collecting inspiration for a foreseeable future vacation (one day mates, a single working day!). And this natural beauty of a residence is the most current a single to be included to my very little black reserve of lovely stays! Study on to uncover much more about it. 

The Storekeeper’s Residence in Tatura in Victoria, Australia was designed in 1905 and started off daily life as Flanagan’s Keep – a basic retail outlet specialising in material and haberdashery and later, ironmongery, boot earning and repairs. 
Carrie and Luis Casanova took on the important renovation two a long time ago – reworking it into a attractive, warm and inviting residence for guests

The residence is full of character thanks to its initial time period attributes, solid iron stove, uncovered bricks and wonderful wood floor. Carrie and Luis have also scoured flea marketplaces and 2nd-hand internet sites to fill it with wonderful previous parts, assisting the household to reconnect to its previous and rejoice the early storekeepers of Victoria. 

The property has three bedrooms (my eyes are on the 1 with the 4-poster mattress!), all fitted with linen sheets – of program! 

I love the toilet with its claw foot tub and stroll-in shower. Just take a look at that antique chest-of-drawers which has been transformed into a vainness too – these kinds of a excellent notion! 

Outside the house seating region presents a cosy spot for a cool glass of wine – and I also browse there are a good deal of cafes, bakeries and eating places close by. It can be sounding extra and far more like my type of spot – do you come to feel the similar?

The question is, when can I stop by? 

I enjoy a great airbnb discover, how about you? 

Right here are a number of some others I’ve obtained in my minor black ebook of holiday rentals: 

In other news, I claimed that I was going to element my cabin lavatory on Friday but let’s just say… I have experienced a couple teething challenges so you will find a slight delay with that a single. I have one thing else inspiring lined up even though, so please do pop back just before the weekend! 

Vi ses på fredag!
