The Spring Cottage in Tarragindi

I am so happy to be back and fully functioning in ‘blog land’ with a beautiful home – or should I say, cottage tour for you today!

The Spring Cottage in Tarragindi

Many of you may have seen The Spring shop and The Spring blog – but have you seen The Spring cottage??

Welcome to the home of Catherine and Nick!

Catherine is originally from Toronto and met her Australian born love, Nick, in Cambridge.  After a short stint in Sydney, they relocated to Brisbane and set up home in this cute cottage.

The cottage was originally built to house some growing teenagers and is situated in the leafy surrounds of a suburban back garden.  Over the years it has served it’s purpose and today, it’s a cosy home for Catherine and Nick and the perfect escape for them, from their busy lives.

Between work and everything else, Catherine writes a blog, runs and online store and peddles her stores wares at various markets.  She has also recently joined forces to  open the Showroom, a new and exciting retail and workshop space on Latrobe Terrace in Paddington.

Catherine’s style is neo-traditional, combining old with new and it’s evident to see her love of this displayed all around her home and also in her store products.

A few of the items on these shelves are available in Catherine’s online store The Spring Shop.  The copper wire fairy lights are so beautiful, the photo really doesn’t do them justice!

The cottage is surrounded by leafy green trees, lawn and luscious garden beds, providing such a serene outlook and sense of calm.  It truly is a cosy cottage, the kind of place that I like to escape to for some R&R!
