Spring has been on my mind the last week or so and after some time spent reading other blogs I see I am not alone. Looking at the photos of this rental in Melbourne I can almost feel the spring breeze floating in through the windows and smell fresh herbs recently pulled from the garden. It has such a comfortable and easy style I can't help but love it. I love the curated look but must admit I think in my own home I would feel more cluttered than curated. This has just the right amount for me. The home is occupied by photographic designer, Jessica Tramp, who, from what I read, has a thing for taxidermy (which reminded me of, you, Yelle). While I am quite fond of the owl and in general I am a admirer of beautiful oddities, I am not sure how I feel about that little deer baby on the wall. At first glance I love it, it's so cute and makes for such a striking image with the fireplace and white walls. But then after a second or two I find myself wanting to shout "run little deer, run."

  2. Really hice, I would die for a trip to Melbourne and rent that house such cozy and romantic.
    I'm also willing for the spring to come, can't stand this cold anymore.
    Kisses Christine have a great week

  4. What a great apartment, I love its vibe. The taxidermy fascinates me and creeps me out at the same time. Really like all the vintage finds she scattered throughout her place...It is freezing cold here, temperatures are in the teens but it feels even colder which makes me long for spring as well...

  5. You are totally right - I am actually so smitten with that little fawn on the wall. There's sadness to it, but beauty at the same time. I totally get your unsure sentiments. I'm more of an admirer when it comes to mammal collections, and I pretty much only collect insects. I wonder if it has anything to do with the much shorter life span?

  6. I could definitely do without the taxidermy deer, it's just too sweet and sad for me to see on a daily basis. But I do love the other collections of vintage items, especially that desk. I love the juxtaposition of the new iMac against the old patina of the desk top. And that silk robe hanging on the wall? I'll take that in my size, please. xo

  7. That deer! So sweet! But to live with? Sob. Other than my mixed feelings about that, I pretty much adore everything about that house. Yes. Please.

  9. This is such a sweet little place, I agree that it has an airy feeling. I love all the odd paintings of people on the wall. You know what I find lovely about this place is that the couch actually looks comfortable. whenever I am looking at home decor books or magazines or blogs it always seems that the furniture looks so uncomfortable. What is a home without a cozy couch to read on?
    Cheers

  10. This place is just gorgeous. I love the simple and rusty (is that a thing?) feel of the interior decorating. I'm definitely questioning that baby deer though - I think I'd opt NOT to have that hanging on my wall. :P

  11. This is such a wonderful mix of modern and vintage. I love everything except I have to agree with Jen on the little bambi.

  12. I have to agree with Wren and say that I love the mixture of vintage and modern. It's such a welcoming and comfortable space, somewhere that you would feel immediately at home. I have to admit that I am not sure how I feel about the baby deer either.

  13. Ha, that's exactly my sentiment on the deer. Then again, dead animals on the wall have always freaked me out

  14. I'm so glad you addressed the baby deer hanging on the wall. Like you, I got the same mix of feelings when I first saw it. From the comments, I can see we're all in the same camp. I do appreciate a collected home and this one is no exception. It really does take skill (and a labor of love) to visit flea markets and vintage stores to pull together such a look and not have it look haphazard. The owners have done a really great job.

  15. What a gorgeous house. I would love to see those designs on the walls in person. I'm in love to every detail in this house. :)
