Inspiration: Renovated Mattress Factory

Inspiration: Renovated Mattress Factory

Lyn Gardener is best known for her Albert Park store, Empire Vintage. Lyn had her heart set on the run down mattress factory nearby and after waiting 3 years for it to come onto the market, Lyn renovated it into a delightful home - we're not sure that anyone has previously coined the phrase "dramatic restraint" but if not, Lyn Gardener owns it for her white on white approach to decorating…

Keeping as many of the original features as possible, Lyn has filled her home with mostly second-hand goods that she has come across while sourcing stock for Empire Vintage. What we love about Lyn's home is that all the details are unique and she only has what she truly loves. Amazingly, Lyn has also converted the old leather factory next door and a miner's cottage in Daylesford, The White House. For more info on Empire Vintage visit Lyn's website here.
