I love this cottage renovated by Empire Vintage owner Lynda Gardner. The 1890's brick miners cottage in Daylesford, Victoria is graced with 30s and 40's pieces, clawfood baths and chandeliers but all without being too overly pretty. I like the kitchen area the best with the chalkboard wall, rustic furniture and flashes of rich red and green.
If you have a special occasion coming up, Lyn has her cottage available to rent out for weekends away, click here for more details. Inspiration from Country Style Magazine and Design Sponge.
