Steal This Look: A Rustic Porch and Summerhouse in Australia

Issue 82 · Australia by Design · July 23, 2013

Yesterday, we posted on the interiors of Ellis House, a historic guesthouse in Kyneton, Australia. Today, we're dissecting the outdoor style of the house's wraparound porch and original 19th-century summer house. To recreate the look, we've sourced a few elements similar to those chosen by designer and creative director Tracie Ellis.
