Shelley Banders Shares Her Strzelecki Home + Idyllic Country Life!

If you’ve ever considered packing up shop and moving to the country, this home story might just be the little nudge that tips you over the edge!

Interior designer Shelley Banders and husband Tom moved to this charming farmhouse in Victoria’s South Gippsland in mid 2018, and have not looked back! They share their idyllic 1890s home with son Amos (6 months) and Dennis the Airedale terrier. (And possibly also all of TDF soon, who would like to move in please!)

Coastal Pavilions, Freycinet Lodge

You might have noticed, if you follow us on Instagram, that I (Lucy!) recently spent a blissful weekend away on the East Coast of Tasmania, in Freycinet National Park.

I was incredibly lucky to stay at the Coastal Pavilions, Freycinet Lodge – a brand new development of nine architecturally designed private pavilions on the water’s edge, set amongst impossibly beautiful natural surroundings.

Today, I’m sharing a little tour of this very special new accommodation offering in the Apple Isle!

A Renovated Blue Mountains Home With Soul

When Craig Johnston, designer and owner of Blue Mountains Drafting, and Katherine Johnston initially purchased this house in the Blue Mountains, it looked entirely different to how it does today. Over the past five years, the couple have gradually renovated the property together, filling the space with joy, and their own distinct personality. 

What was once a rundown fibro house is now a durable, low-maintenance home with soul, shared by their now four children and kelpie.
