Nestled behind exotic cactus gardens, an overflow of nature hugging its surrounds, The Dairy was designed to connect the beauty of the old with the spirit of the new.
Taking inspiration from its original structure and façade, the heart and soul of The Dairy is brought to life through the care and craftsmanship of local artisans and carefully considered pieces that inspire the design found in old and new worlds to sit in harmony, side-by-side.
“Home is about a sense of comfort, a sense of care, and a sense of being able to be who we are. Families create homes that uniquely reflect how they live, their sense of style and beauty, and the individuals that make up the family….”
Set in the heart of the Byron Bay hinterland and transporting you a world away, The Dairy & La Villa were born from the magic of a family’s creation and complete a part of the picture known as Casas Secretas. A private oasis created by a collaboration between Mother and Daughter, the homes that make up the soul of Casas Secretas are an expression of what it means to be family.
Customised furnishings have been intentionally sourced to enhance and capture the indoor and outdoor nature of the properties. Island Luxe Naga Table, Tinekhome Sofa in Walnut, and Lee Brennan Candelabra with Candle Kiosk Candles support the space’s pared-back beauty and natural aesthetic. The stories, lived experiences and time spent together have created an intimate insight that gives guests the chance to savour and immerse in their memories of past holidays, treasured moments spent with family and future journeys waiting to transpire. It is where daydreams continue to manifest long after you’ve left.
The homes that make up Casas Secretas inspire a different kind of pace. One that allows you to savour, explore the landscape, wander the surrounding spaces at your leisure and immerse in the beauty of nature.
Entering the house at La Villa sets its own story. Sourcing pieces that are a reflection of travels past and treasures found, Baxter Italy furnishings enhance the space through the features of the Budapest Sofa and Baxter Leather Cushions, with Frezoli Lighting.
The Resting Room, comforted by surrounding windows and escaping the outdoors, lends itself to witnessing the landscape's changing colours as the sun dips behind the hills. Baxter Italy Damasco Seating warms the space, while the added feature of Frezoli Lighting captures the ambience of the interiors.
Creating with intention, the spaces of Casas Secretas are an invitation to dream and escape. Taking a rest in the main ensuite at La Villa features a custom-created Bed Frame and Head by S. Lambourn Hull with Hale Mercantile Linen, making the rugged elements of nature a part of the home’s interior.
Envisioned from a family’s passion for travel and lived experiences, the moments taken over time have woven a unique thread that has brought to life homes that pulse with their own distinct narrative. It allows guests to become part of that lived experience, leaving their imprint through their own unfolding journey.
At the same time, the wild surrounds of nature’s beauty, unique interior spaces and artisan-crafted pieces have become the heart and soul of Casas Secretas and emerged the dream it was imagined with.
