Period Charm Meets Modern Style

A quaint historic post office, transformed into a beautiful and modern abode without losing any of the original period charm. Located in the quiet seaside town of Port Fairy and originally constructed in 1881, this stunning Bluestone building is the perfect example of how beautiful historical architecture can be recontextualised to work within a modern society. Stepping inside this impeccably styled space, it’s no surprise to find it’s home to Hale Mercantile Co.’s very own Sharon Patsiotis.

The unique period architectural details such as detailed doorframe panels and tall archways are complimented by the eclectic mix of antique decorative pieces, art, taxidermy, and of course Hale Mercantile linen bedding, accessories and furniture.

This beautiful home was recently featured in the June/July issue of Elle magazine, where Sharon provides a personal insight into her inspiration for the space, and the significance the coastal area has for her and her family. Her own unique style and penchant for antiques works seamlessly throughout the space, as she explains ‘Today’s families are drawn to open-plan living, but I’ve always loved the charm of a small space for showcasing decorative pieces that don’t work in large living areas’
