Bright And Eclectic Vintage House In Australia

 

Vintage is so amazing! This style gives coziness and warmness to any place, especially if, like in this case, several styles are mixed. The house is located in Melbourne, Australia and belongs to illustrator Paula Mills who decided to decorate her house herself, according to her taste. She decided to knock out some walls to create a lighter and brighter living space — a sort of blank canvas on which to layer more color and texture. The bits and pieces they’ve collected from the various places they’ve lived throughout the years — South Africa, England and now Australia — reflect a global aesthetic that is unique to their family and creates a comfortable and creative environment.

The floating cabinets and shelves are handy for added storage that keeps all your kitchen essentials close at hand.
