A Seriously ‘Cool’ home – The Black Shack

Its not often you find a home that’s the perfect mix of vintage, tribal and eclectic shabby chic but this home ticks all the boxes.

Named the Black Shack, this home is located in Wentworth Falls, in Rural Sydney. Its no wonder this place features such an amazingly curated collection of pieces – as the (former) home owner Jane Frosh is one half of the very clever interior styling duo Cool Edies.
