Enjoy a nosey around this beautiful secondhand house filled with charity shop treasures.
I love a good house tour. There’s nothing quite like a nosey around someone else’s home, to gain inspiration for your own place. Or just to dream about a one-day potential home.
If you’re the same as me, then you’re in for such a treat today. I recently stumbled across this charming 1920’s home, which is a total dream. Rented and decorated by Brisbane resident Nicolette Johnson, it looks like such a cosy, inviting, and relaxing space.
Want to know the very best bit? The majority of Nicolette’s items of furniture, artwork and accessories were sourced from eBay and Gumtree, as well as antique stores and charity shops. And in a lovely personalised touch, the chairs were reupholstered by her mum. What’s more, some of the artwork on the walls was made by Nicolette herself.
As a renter, Nicolette hasn’t been able to do much to her flat, bar hang shelves, and hang artwork on her walls. However, her beautiful secondhand furniture and artwork really shine in this light and bright space.
Rather unusually it’s her vintage cooker that makes me smile the most. It reminds me so much of the one my Gran Graham had. It unexpectedly brought back many so happy memories for me of baking scones and rock buns in her tiny kitchen. Just looking at the photo takes me right back to a rainy Saturday afternoon in the mid 1980s, sleeves rolled up, flour everywhere, and feeling so very loved.
What’s your favourite part of this stunning secondhand house?
