    Sydney Home

    If you’ve ever set foot in one of fashion designer Lee Mathews‘ magical stores in either Melbourne, Sydney or Brisbane, these shots of her incredible warehouse home in Sydney’s Balmain will delight but probably not surprise you! With a clear affection for all things vintage, antique or otherwise pre-loved, Lee’s eye for detail extends beyond her eponymous fashion label and eclectic retail stores, into the industrial open plan living space she shares with her partner, and teenage daughter Matilda.

    i'd get rid of the hanging fabric behind the bed and the flag hanging in the dining room and maybe de-clutter it a tiny bit but i really like this space. you can tell a lot of effort was put into it and collecting all these pieces.

    It looks like a merry place that is actually loved and lived it.

    Shabby chic is so 1990s. Chuck it all out and start again.

    This is more like shabby industrial chic, though! Which I like... although I don't like all of it, and I wouldn't put all of it together at the same time like this. Lots of cool pieces, though.

    And I really hate stupid little stool things with a tatty desk lamp instead of a proper bedside table/nightstand. I need to keep clock/radio, phone, books, meds, drink, tissues, etc on and in mine so it's a small 3-drawer thing with a nice lamp.

    I would get rid of most of the tat except the big cheese sign and start again. Love the house though.

    i'm the opposite.
    i have a tiny footstool too and all i need is enough space for a small lamp, book and glass of water. but i have drawers under my bed for everything else. but i like a minimalist bedroom with as little furniture as possible other than the bed.

    That particular footstool is an eyesore.

    In general, great space, but the decor needs to die in a fire. The only room I halfway like is the den (with all the books).
