Seeing these images (which I spotted on this post from Desire to Inspire) simply reminds me why I need to renew my subscription to Inside Out magazine. I’ve always loved this publication – I have a stack of back issues sitting in my office. Sure, every issue features great looking homes, as you would expect, but also the styling and photography always has that special something, and then there’s the magical natural light that seems to infuse every interiors shoot.


And this home in Daylesford in Victoria in Australia is no different. Beautifully photographed for the magazine by Armelle Habib and styled by Julia Green, it also helps that this is the weekend home of interior designer and stylist Kali Cavanagh, who has designed, decorated, renovated and styled various properties in Melbourne, Sydney, and London.


Vintage House Daylesford is an 1860s miner’s cottage that Cavanagh has completely restored and redesigned, and the interior is filled with quirks and character thanks to her mix of antique, vintage and industrial furniture and artworks gleaned from around the globe.

The house sits within almost an acre of land with views over Wombat State Forest and Doctor’s Gully, and includes a landscaped garden with a seating area and an outdoor fire pit. Vintage House is available to let (it currently sleeps six) whether as a holiday home or as a location for shoots. Pretty gorgeous, right?
