The White House
It’s been a while coming, but this weekend I finished my third coffee and below is the results. The house featured is not my own (unfortunately), it is instead, a boutique bed and breakfast just outside of Melbourne called The White House, in Daylesford.
Before moving to Melbourne I had long admired Empire Vintage’s magnificent early century miner’s cottage, set in the leafy heart of Daylesford, and so I was particularly impressed when my partner surprised me with a two night visit for my birthday in December. The White House is a truly inspiring place to stay, the kind of house that feels all at once immaculately curated and infinitely inviting.
Having experienced many rooms in my life, I can say that there is a subtle but jarring difference between a house designed and furnished for the purposes of containing and nurturing people, and one that would look better (and cleaner) without you in it. I can say with certainty that The White House is a place designed for people enjoy and recharge, with everything required for relaxing catered for – from the generous give in every cushion to the expertly stocked reading room.
Hope this vid does it just a tiny bit of justice. The coffee was terrible by the way (not the White House’s fault).
