Inside the home of the owners of Queenies

We share an extract from new book Antiques in the Antipodes


The artistic and energetic Allana in her dining room.

An old French filing cabinet adds to the industrial charm of the kitchen. Allana has collected a variety of old and new factory stools which suit the 19th-century pine table.

Shand Kydd wallpaper and Allana’s animal collection.

The bedroom’s exotic wallpaper is from the James Dunlop Art and Soul collection.

The handsome carved oak doors from France and Persian rugs.

A French gilt banquette is upholstered in rich brocade.

The marble tiles in the bathroom were sourced from Turkey, China and Vietnam.

Viewed from the top floor, the stairwell is an architectural coup.
