Melissa’s home is in the Southern Highlands in New South Wales. I love the parquetry flooring that has been installed in this stunning light filled entrance and throughout the home The parquetry flooring is from reclaimed French oak.

The provincial inspired home is decorated in fresh neutral tones for a soothing and elegant interior.

It couldn’t get more perfect than this in the bedroom with a pair of timber french doors opening out into the garden with a beautiful green hedge.

Red apples and lush green foliage are the perfect country decor to this elegant white kitchen.

The large window is the perfect frame for Melissa’s outdoor rattan chair and timber table, purchased from her local hardware store, Gubbins Home Timber & Hardware in Mittagong

A provincial inspired country home is not complete unless it has a window seat like this one above where you can relax with your favourite interiors book or magazine.
