This charming house full of wonderful elements belongs to the photographer, stylist and writer from Brisbane (Australia). It was decorated by Kara Rosenlund herself. As a collector, she managed to endue the cottage with features of a museum, where every item has its own history. Together with her husband Kara has been searching for a traditional cottage, which was the traditional residence of representatives of the workers, for a long time. In 2009 they have finally found the original construction, which hadn`t been repaired, and kept its distinctive character.
The spouse performed all decoration work with their own hands: they burnished the floor, added the dining room, and reconstructed the bathroom and kitchen. At the same time all distinctive house`s proportions remained unchanged, as well as the range of architectural peculiarities of the Victorian-style residence. This cottage with three bedrooms and high ceilings was built in 1900. The new owners have decorated it in neutral colour tincture. The wooden elements have a great look on the white-grey background. The collection of aged cutting boards, hand-made ceramics and ancient culinary utensils decorate the house and remind of travelling. However, the coziness and warm-heartedness aren`t the main features of this house`s atmosphere. The main peculiarity is the unbroken connection with the nature. The owners prefer to leave the windows and doors wide open catching fresh air all year round, as well as to spend time on the terrace, decorated as an additional room.
