Serendipity

Towards the end of 2006, about a year before I began this blog, I discovered this article in the Sydney Morning Herald (Sorry, but I can't remember the exact date).

The photo appeared to be uncredited so I had no way of knowing the room it depicted, but I loved it so much that I stuck it in my scrapbook (This was before I knew what a tear sheet was). Imagine my happiness three days ago when I found the following photo spread in the March 08 edition of Home Beautiful. It appears that the images are of a converted factory belonging to Lyn Gardener, owner of Empire III vintage store in Melbourne. I love the fact that everything is old, even chipped and peeling. I think her aesthetic is just right, particularly the predominantly white palette and French chairs.

I used to live just down the road from her! Its a non descript old factory building from the outside, its in northern melbourne. She has fantastic taste. Have you seen the pics of her old place? Its right next door...when she split from her then partner he kept the place, and she moved next door!

Just love this home too! I am a white fanatic and a vintage fanatic - so it all appeals to me!

I didn't realise there were so many Lyn Gardener fans out there.

Hi Suzy,
No I haven't seen her old place. But I want to go to her shop next time I'm in Melbourne.

I've just found your blog and absolutely love your style! I've been to Lyn Gardener's shop lots of times, she has the most interesting range of treasures you could imagine! I love the way her style has developed from Industrial to more of a white glamour look (that's my description anyway)
