{ lyn gardener & empire vintage }



Welcome to the fabulous home of Lyn Gardener, the designer and creative talent behind the wildly successful shop, Empire Vintage, based in Melbourne Australia. Originally an old mattress factory, Lyn gutted, renovated and decorated the two story warehouse space to create her home–a light and airy haven, which beautifully showcases her lifelong passion for vintage collections and fresh design aesthetic.

I admire people like Lyn who have the foresight and vision for such an undertaking...and follow through on it.

I love her knack for making everything old, new again, through her exquisite mix of dreamy whites, subtle pops of colors, and pleasing textures.

Those of us who aren't able to take a personal jaunt into the wonderful world Lyn has created at Empire Village can find plenty of inspiration from her lovely site which features both her store and her private residence.
