hello sfgirlbybay readers! si here, from the frenchbydesign blog, for a new “i could live here” house tour!

this is the lovely home of photographer hilary walker and her husband benjamin baldwin. their home, which is also their workspace, is a converted warehouse in brunswick east, australia. filled with second-hand finds arranged thoughtfully –- the couple likes to “squeeze the life out of old stuff” as they like to say, hilary and benjamin’s home exhibits a lot of character, mixing soft colors with bright accents. hilary even confesses that she likes areas “with busy-ness”. this home is a cosy, comfortable and very welcoming space.

si –- french by design

    I like the ceiling rack for drying clothes, which makes perfect sense in a space like this, where the heat would rise so far up to the ceiling. I saw this idea used in a cabin in New Hampshire once and thought, how cool, but so practical, too.

    i love to look at this because it’s so fabulous but I would miss having rooms!

    As cute as it looks, this place would get ridiculously cold in winter. I wonder how they keep the space warm as Melbourne buildings do not do heating very well.
