Style Siren Series - The Repose

We are always delighted and intrigued by the beautiful spaces that our pure linen collection goes to feature in. So much so that we have decided to bring you style and inspiration from those that we consider to be our Style Sirens.

This week we nestle into The Repose, a historic cottage escape the rural NSW town of Dubbo by Saddler and Co's Jemima Alridge.

Originally a humble worker’s cottage built in 1904, Jemima sought to weave elements of modern style side by side with heritage inspiration in the meticulous renovation. The result is a thoughtful space that exudes quintessential Australian charm and invites a sense of connection and a place to rest your senses.

With a nod to the European heritage that shapes the country, the original features of the cottage have been preserved and complemented with the renovation. The high timber ceilings and original timber flooring have been rejuvenated with a simple white lime finish. Artisan elements such as handcrafted tiles, antiques and brass and the inclusion of pure European bed linen and accessories have shaped a space that welcomes connection, rest and comfort.

Subtle links of the past and the environment intertwine through each room. Hale Mercantile Co. linen features in a palette of Russo, Moro and Sable to draw reference to the dusty plains and red soils of the area. The inclusion of the Kristine range of bed linen encapsulates the essence of the building and it's location - rustic, romantic and a place with the heart of the Australian hospitality.
