A 100-year old wood mill home might not seem like the ideal purchase for most, but a keen eye for decor, and the right time pieces can truly create an inviting, elegant home, like this property in Melbourne, Australia. Floorboards which have scratches from old wool mill equipment give the interior of the property a truly eclectic and distinct vibe; brick walls are vibrant and can be seen from a distance, lining board ceilings, and the distinct tin-roof, give the home that old world feel and charm, you won’t find in a new property or construction.
Retro-inspired elements bring the home’s interior together. This along with mid-century furniture, a wooden slide which goes down to the mezzanine level, and reading nooks sprawled throughout, give the home a one-of-a-kind feel which can’t be duplicated. A warm and comfortable feeling is experienced upon entering the home. With all flooring already scratched, and dents throughout the home, there isn’t anything which is overly expensive, or extremely new/modern, which detracts from the old-world feel of this home.
Geometric printed art throughout the home, the black spiral staircase, vintage teak table in the dinning room, and open-concept living space, truly gives this home its own unique vibe, and style which stands apart from others. Vintage, charm, elegant, eclectic, are just a few words which come to mind in terms of the decor and style. And, with everything in the home being original, it has the old-world elegance and charm, which newer properties don’t incorporate in the design.
Simplistic light fixtures and lamps throughout the home, large windows, and the bright-red brick finish throughout, truly come together in a marvelous way in the home. Add in the tin-roof, which has its own charm (and challenges at times, given it is 100 years old), brings the entire home together. The location, the size, the spacing, and everything in the home simply works together, and the home comes together magnificently.
Incorporated throughout are personal touches the owners brought into the home. These include the geometric wall-art, paintings, and different colors of paint chosen for each room of the home. And, the spiral staircase in the center, helps create a centralized feel in the living/family area of the home, which the entire family can truly take in and enjoy.
Old world charm meets eclectic style, with a touch of elegance throughout, to truly create a captivating home, where an old wool-mill factory used to lye.
