The Estate Trentham

Trentham, Victoria, Australia

There are those among us who possess the uncanny ability to see dusty, perhaps wilted structures as future style stars and the old bones of historic homes as bohemian beauties to-be. However it takes more than a keen eye to breathe new life into old barns and historic homes. Lynda Gardener and Mark Smith are two such people that possess the talent and magic to carefully craft spectacularly breathtaking spaces. We were already clued into their beautiful bespoke style as they own  The Estate Trentham,  White House Daylesford and White Room Fitzroy. The three properties that are so lovely, that upon first glance it seems as if they are inspirational images styled for a home decor magazine. One would not imagine that these houses are actually available for the public to experience. 

We were fortunate enough to speak with Lynda, who's interior design is unmatched in the way she is able to tell a story through style. The Estate Trentham, caught our eye in particular as it's not just an accommodation for getaways but includes a beautiful, onsite events barn for intimate gatherings and a lush, private garden for outdoor dining.
