CHECK IN AT THE ESTATE OF TRENTHAM

April 5, 2017

 

 

 I recently experienced the beautiful Estate of Trentham in Victoria, Australia, owned by Interior Designer Lynda Gardener.

See below what I captured during my stay.

You can also book Lynda’s other properties The White House Daylesford, The Apartment St.Kilda and The White Room Fitzroy with my discount HERE.

I had very literally stayed in all the hotel suits and resort rooms Melbourne had to offer, I had seen the commercial side to the luxury high-end accommodation industry and I had experienced all the typical tourism trimmings. It was after that saturation of white-walled hotels that my thirst for luxury travel led me to the bespoke, boutique “Breakfast & Bed” market. It was here I sampled a whole new perspective of luxury accommodation  – one that was luxe and with all the finishing touches but suited specifically to me, with a point of difference from the rest and a certain aesthetic that screamed high-end but homely.

Take for example Estate Trentham. This is by no means the typical hotel suite or even the typical B n B room. Think a C1902 three bedroom federation house, sprawling manicured (but just so) gardens and a quaint barn.

The living room is filled with wall to wall sofas strategically circling the wood fireplace in winter and facing the double French doors to the north facing garden in summer. Add some Turkish and hand crocheted rugs and the house is as much as home as a holiday destination.

Move into the kitchen and to make good use of the large personal collection of vintage crockery, wooden utensils and chopping boards. The third bedroom is the converted original potato pickers shed, a few steps away from the main house, overlooking the herb gardens and mini orchard.

Inspired by Scandanavian interiors, fresh white walls, dark floors and airy rooms, complemented by natural wood furniture, a mix of old and new curated collections from European flea markets, to local country finds – it’s the perfect balance of history and texture.

It’s the work of interior designer Lynda Gardener who is also the force behind White House and The Apartment St.Kilda. I have experienced her other properties before so had high hopes when I moved into Estate Trentham for my mini-break. I was not disappointed.
