A Set Decorator's Home in a 100-Year-Old Former Wool Mill — House Tour

Name: Ineke Hutter and sons Leo and Arlo
Location: Collingwood; Melbourne; Victoria, Australia
Size: 139 square meters (1,496 square feet)
Years lived in: 10 years; Owned

For interior stylist and set decorator Ineke Hutter, living in a 100-year-old wool mill is something she still gets a kick out of, 10 years after she first moved in. She and her two sons share the space where many moons ago factory workers sorted the wool that came in from farms outside the city. Ineke shares, "Our floorboards still bear the scars of where the machinery stood and where the lanolin stained it, all surrounded by the original crumbling red brick walls, large sash windows, lining board ceilings and tin roof. It is this incredible sense of history and aged imperfection that makes it such a warm and comfortable home."
