Vintage decor + neutral palette


Life without colour, almost

Justins charming weatherboard is a vintage Ralph Lauren bower of neutral tones. Autumnal accents are used sparingly, as colour has a short life and like a classic B/W movie this home is timeless. Vintage dark timber furntiure, walnut & black stained floors, hand mixed white for the walls and soft autumn tones create an ageless beauty with heart and character.

We styled the home using a collection of white flowers, rustic silver trays,
stacks of white crockery and some crumpled paper for the wire basket in the study and little else. Most of the pieces I bought along for the shoot were sourced from Provincial Home Living, which was just perfect for Justins decor.

I love this home, enjoy

  1. is this the same house from the other one what had the flag in it? This time the flag is British, last time it was American. Do I win a surprise?
