Coombs Hill Barn
Our recent photoshoot took us to a striking 160-year-old barn imported from Indiana, USA, located in the Victorian High Country. With rustic grandeur and elegant classical features, this incredible property pairs history and craftsmanship with a fresh, contemporary sensibility, providing the perfect setting to showcase our luxurious pure European linen bedding collection.
The HMCo. team travelled two hours and 45 minutes northeast of Melbourne to Merrijig, where this stunning barn stands on a 100-acre property overlooking Mount Buller and the Delatite Valley. Discovered in the USA by the owners before being dismantled, shipped to Australia and meticulously rebuilt on-site in 2017, it has been transformed into a warm and inviting family home that is also offered as luxurious accommodation.
Hand-finished details and wooden elements sit alongside white-washed walls and polished concrete floors, imbuing a rustic-meets-refined aesthetic that beautifully complements our pure linen bedding. A 12-metre-high stone fireplace, laid by hand using sandstone and mudstone collected from the surrounding paddocks, lends a sense of provenance to the home, which has been furnished with natural materials including jute, linen and ceramics to create a space that is both elegant and welcoming.
Fresh mountain air and cool, crisp nights called for soft, textural bedding that can layered up for a maximalist look or pared down to a simple bedspread or flat sheet as the seasons change. The High Country landscape also informed our nature-inspired palette, with Mare, Argent, Roy and Fog echoing the blue tint of the mountain horizon, the shifting mood of the skies, and the fields of green, while Sable, Bere and Brun offer a warm, earthy combination.

With its triple-height structure and vaulted ceilings, exposed timber beams, and panoramic views through the classical steel windows, the barn's expansive, open layout is suitably furnished with king-size beds that presented the ideal opportunity to style our generously sized bedding, blankets and throws. Demonstrating its classic adaptability and sumptuous drape, our pure linen range looked right at home in this timeless setting.
