A timeless experience, just an hour and a half out of Melbourne.

The White House (empirevintage.com.au/thewhitehousedaylesford/index.html) is a boutique bed and breakfast in the heart of Daylesford, a short drive from Melbourne.

From the downy garden light that falls through each window to the generous give in every cushion, the White House is a place designed to make you feel at home (or at least, a better version than your own home). Each couch is softly worn on the arms, creating an expectation that here is where one arm should rest while the other is for your book.

Entering the house you get the sense that it was almost waiting for you to arrive. A welcoming loaf of bread waits to be cut, fresh eggs are laid out on the bench, new picked oranges, a creamy bottle of milk in the fridge.

And the objects, carefully chosen and intimately displayed, each have their own story to tell. Turning every corner, opening ever door and drawer, reveals a new twist.

The short trip, just 3 days, renewed a year's worth of creative energy, and we hardly left Melbourne.
