Artisanal Tasmanian furniture and artwork tell a story of Tasmania; of its cultural and wild heritage, creating a strong link to the historic setting and to the owner’s own story.
A stunning painting of Lake St. Clair hangs in the living room (Soaking up the light, Peter Gouldthorpe, oil on linen, 2020), twinned with a colonial painting of the same area (Mount Gould, the Du Cane Range, Narcissus River, Lake St. Clair, H.B. Rollings, oil on canvas, c1895).
The bedrooms and hall are hung with an eclectic mix of contemporary and early Tasmanian prints and watercolours, reflecting the owner’s Tasmanian heritage and love of the island.
The Bill standing lamp, crafted from Tasmanian oak by Stuart Williams creates a cosy pool of light on winter evenings, completing the antique leather and timber furniture in the living space.
An outsized Peter Dombrovskis wilderness photograph hangs in the bathroom.
A generous Tasmanian messmate timber dining table is complemented by a bespoke Huon pine side table.
The bookshelves are lined with Tasmaniana and curios. Soft furnishings and interiors by Stenning Design reflect the origins of the cottage as an early Tasmanian gentleman’s residence.
