House tour: butter factory turned toasty home

20 May

Originally built as a butter factory and most recently used as a candle maker’s workshop, owners Greg Hatton and Lucy Marx had to melt an inch-thick coating of candle wax from the walls of their future home with boiling water before their renovation could begin. And I thought stripping wallpaper was bad…

vintage dining room with rough plaster walls

vintage living room
relaxed vintage interior
row of vintage chairs
vintage house tour
vintage bedroom ideas
vegetable garden Australia
Maybe the interior is a little too rough and ready for everyday living, but as a place to visit I think this home looks idyllic. I love the relaxed vintage vibe and the way the patina of the building has been retained in the peeling plaster and chipped tiles, not the mention the dream vegetable plot and homemade honey.
Not sure I’ll be copying the marrow centrepiece idea though!!!

    I like the rough and ready-ness of the house! I love the garden. And butter, so I would love to live here just to say I lived in a former butter factory!
