Kitchen of the Week: A Two-Toned Cook Space in an 1890s Tasmanian Cottage
Kerran and Sam Langley—a nurse in forensic mental health and a cartographer and self-described “keen bushwalker,” respectively—are the most recent owners of a snug 1890s Victorian in the foothills of Tasmania. “Sam and I fell in love with its old-world charm and the little cottage garden,” Kerran wrote to us when we first featured the cottage (here). “We loved that it hadn’t been renovated fully so we could shape it for ourselves. This was our first and our only home,” she added. “Sam also proposed to me here.”
With the couple as its caretakers, it’s no surprise that the redone interiors of the cottage—now called Lumière Lodge—are so sweet, each room painted a different hue. We particularly like the two-tone robin’s-egg-and-olive of the cottage kitchen; let’s take a look.
