Lots of great photos here of Tasmanian design to give you some inspiration!

Canopy House by Leeton Pointon. That window seat is glorious, and I love the big open entrance to the bathroom.

Love the simplicity in this sanctuary. This bedroom belongs to The Bungalow, designed by sustainable home architects The Sociable Weaver.

On the wild north-west coast of Tasmania (an area that calls itself ‘the edge of the world’) there’s a historic little town called Stanley. Tucked away here is a new boutique hotel, The Ship Inn. Built in 1849, it was a pub and lodgings, playing host to sailors from around the world who sought Stanley’s safe harbour.  Today, it’s a seven-suite guest house, run by a couple who upped sticks from city life to start a new one here with their kids. The richly decorated rooms tell stories of the hotel and town’s history. Interior design was done by inimitable duo Inside Story (that’s Lynda Gardener and Belle Hemming Bright).

And I know we don’t usually post exteriors here, but I had to:

There are so many more images to see here. Or, better yet, go and read the story of the inspiring family who moved their lives here to restore and run it. Article from Living etc. magazine here, Country Style magazine here, Domain here and Real Living here.

And if you’d like more escapism in the form of historic / boutique accommodations in remote parts of Tasmania, you’ll also love Lumiere Lodge in Hobart and Captain’s Rest in Strahan. (Both of those links will take you to purpose-driven photographer Marnie Hawson’s website, which you could get lost in for hours – put the kettle on.)

More slow rural scenes from photographer Marnie Hawson. These were captured for sustainable and ethical rug makers Armadillo & Co,  at Lynda Gardener’s boutique accommodation The Estate Trentham. And, speaking of Armadillo & Co…

This beauty is the new Armadillo & Co Sydney flagship/showroom. Both soothing and dramatic; restrained yet undoubtedly luxurious – just like the brand’s products. Concrete, plaster and tiled surfaces offer a quiet backdrop to the large-scale pieces on display. Designed by Studio Goss.
