Anna Yeates had been searching for a house to buy in her hometown of Mudgee and this house built in the late 1800s was perfect. “Having always dreamed of renovating my own home, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this house. It was the house of my dreams - It had just the right balance.”
Anna quickly set to work renovating with the help of her family and filled the house with her antique collection and linen bedding and curtains.
“I have a weakness for antique shopping, so have always spent many a weekend scouring Sydney's antique shops. Unfortunately, the apartment I rent in Sydney is a small shoebox, so I soon became the butt of friends + family's jokes about it being a little Mary Poppins-esque. There was barely a patch of wall that could be seen! When I purchased the house I moved most of the contents of my flat straight into the house.”
