Top Ten Homes of 2017 · Lilli Waters and Jake Cole

Top Ten Homes of 2017

One of our most popular homes in 2017 was the delightful love-nest of photographic artist and her husband Jake Cole, a musician, in Pascoe Vale in Melbourne’s North.

The house-proud couple have created a warm, multi-layered home which speaks to their many passions – art and photography, music, food, friends and pets!

‘We are renting, but we love spending time on making our home a beautiful and warm place to come home to, where we can grow things in our garden, create & make music.’

We do love a much-loved and many-layered rented home, and the Pascoe Vale home of photographic artist  and her husband Jake Cole is just that – a gorgeous, rambling old house in Melbourne’s north, full of character and creative energy.

Here, amongst a jungle of luscious indoor plants, artwork by friends and family, and a seriously impressive collection of op-shop treasure, Lilli’s haunting photographic artworks adorn the walls, whilst Jake’s ever-expanding guitar and amp collection slowly commands more floorspace!

Lilli and Jake love coming home to their house, and feel it is a a space which really nurtures both of their creative spirits. ‘I’m very much drawn to the organic feel of this house’ Lilli muses. ‘It has such a warm feeling, and makes you feel safe and at home as soon as you walk in the door’.

For the full story and many more photos of this delightful love-nest, do revisit the original story!
