Warehouse Wonder

  When fashion designer Lynda Newton and husband Paul first stumbled upon on old run down warehouse in the Melbourne suburb of Hawthorn East, it was not love at first sight. They agreed however, that they’d just discovered their next project and together with architect Gail Long of Stoll Long Architecture, they drew up plans to restore the motley old blind factory into an inviting, contemporary three bedroom home for their family.
A sophisticated and eclectic mix of furniture styles is the result of Lynda's cleverly honed eye for detail in design.
Dark, poky offices and false ceilings were ripped out to expose original Oregon beams and trusses as well as allowing light to flood central living spaces. Using a monochromatic scheme as the foundation upon which the couple could layer their collection of vintage furniture and much-loved collection of art works, the dark floorboards and white walls effectively create a backdrop that is harmonious to the overall scheme.

  1. Any person have any sort of clever ideas for outdoor storage?

    We have some terrific outdoor chairs yet I'm sick and tired of the seat covers becoming soaked from the weather and I do not
    have any place to store the Sadie.
