Get the Look: A Collected, Vintage Federation Home in the Australian Countryside

photo: Lisa Cohen
In our latest installment of collaborations with Chairish, we’re taking a look at the elements you can use at home to recreate one of our favorite Australian wedding venues. The Estate Trentham is a Federation style home in a small Australian country town that dates back to 1902 and has fresh, bright white walls, concrete floors and dark wood beam ceilings. Stylist Lynda Gardner is behind the interiors, and manages to blend old and new in a way that feels modern, collected and even a bit Scandinavian.

We’re thinking this is a look you could easily pull off in your own dining room. With a fresh coat of whitewash for the walls, the addition of some raw wood details and just the right lighting and furniture, you’ll be well on your way to styling your own collected, vintage inspired space.

Isocahedron Pendant

Similar in concept to the cage lamp, this Isocahedron pendant plays with Eucledian geometry and has a slightly larger scale to it. It’s got that industrial vibe, complete with an Edison lightbulb.
