Set Decorator Makes a Cozy Home in Century-Old Wool Mill

Crumbling brick walls meet vintage galore

If anyone can turn an ailing century-old wool mill into a characterful family home, it's a set decorator with a treasure chest of fun decor collected from film sets. This is precisely the story of Ineke Hutter, profiled in a recent home tour on Apartment Therapy. Drawn to the "aged imperfection" that is the old mill's original brick walls, stained floor boards, and large sash windows, Hutter moved into this 1,496-square-foot Melbourne warehouse apartment 10 years ago, and has since transformed it into a stylish, cozy pad to share with her family.

The space, featuring a sunken living area (that Hutter's kids can access via a custom-designed slide designed by their father) and a dashing spiral staircase, blends clean, functional furniture from vintage shops with unique art prints and more retrieved from film/TV sets. The clearly well-loved home also makes a case for lush houseplants. Get the full story here.
