In this issue of Australian Period Style we look at the complete home from past to present, inside and out.
ANTIQUES AND COLLECTABLES
Add a hint of the past to your home with antiques and collectables. We explore the exciting world of antiques with a selection of industry experts, who discuss, among other topics, the latest instalment of the Johnston Collection in Melbourne, colonial ceramics, the Moorcroft collection in Australia, Art Deco jewellery, collecting Australian furniture, an exhibition of pieces by Australian potter Klytie Pate, and the Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries exhibition at National Trust property, Rippon Lea.
In this issue of Australian Period Style, a variety of exquisite homes in various styles from around Australia and the world take centre stage. We feature a restored mansion built in 1896 in country Victoria; a rejuvenated 100-year-old Federation-style cottage in Ryde (Sydney); the historic Fortuna Villa, built in 1856 in Bendigo; an 1860s Tasmanian cottage, one of the oldest in the village of Forth, belonging to Linda and Kevin Dahya of Grange Antiques; and antiques dealer Miguel Meirelles’ antiques-filled Trentham holiday property.
You have the home, now it’s time to create the finishing touches inside it with items such as kitchens, bathrooms, heating, doors, lighting, wallpaper, tapestries and furnishings, among others.
OUTSIDE THE HOME
The exterior of the home gives the world an impression of your property. Ensure the style employed outside matches what is inside — whether it’s the garden, fences, cladding, bricks, garden sculptures, doors and windows, mouldings, or the roof or other finishing touches. You will be well rewarded for your efforts.
