It doesn’t get any better than Fox-Off. Nestled in Tuerong on the Mornington Peninsula, a landholding kept in the family for generations, it is one of the most pristine and untouched land parcels in the area. As soon as you hear the crunch of the dirt road and make your way through the front gate, bearing the sign ‘shut the gate mate’, you are well aware you have landed in heaven.
Fox-Off is the home of Daniella Farrell, a stylist, jeweller, textile designer, horticulturalist, interiors whiz, master renovator and pretty much super everything.
Daniella’s eye for detail is mesmerising. Layers upon layers of surface detail, at every turn your eye is laden with beauty. But it is what is not touched, and what has been lightly handled, that is most captivating.
The immense and saturating charm of the untouched landscape is not lost when you arrive at ‘Fox-Off’. The beauty of long grass, grey gums laying on their sides, and the bordering bush with century old gums. The grace and grit of ‘Clancy’ the old Queenslander, trucked down and seemingly plonked in the middle of a paddock. The careful extension to ‘Clancy’ is as clever as it is simple. Designed completely by Daniella.
Then you step inside, and words disappear. It is a home I feel very welcome in, which is years of friendship long, but it’s not a feeling unique to me. Nearly everyone who steps over the threshold feels this same collision of welcome and awe.
It really is a house like no other. And a shoot location rarely found.
Photographed by the gorgeous Lean Timms over a 3-day shoot, our products effortlessly sat like old friends within this beautiful environment. We loved and laughed through every moment of this once in a lifetime shoot.
