Late last week, David and Emily Berlach, Directors of Bohemian Traders, welcomed friends of the brand to the opening of their latest project—a beautifully restored cottage situated on acres on the Central Coast of NSW, Australia. The event, filled with vibrant energy, pared back interiors and decadent catering was a celebration of contemporary living. Let’s delve into the details.

The doors swung open to reveal a dreamy transformation—an old cottage reborn as a haven of modern elegance, harmonizing effortlessly with the surrounding natural beauty. Every element of the cottage’s design showcased the Berlachs’ impeccable taste and attention to detail, creating an atmosphere that embodied the essence of the Bohemian Traders brand.

Inside, warm, earthy tones blend seamlessly with contemporary accents, inviting everyone to embark on a sensory journey. Carefully curated furnishings by MCM House paired with eclectic artworks by Anna Moir, Emma Gale and Bobby Clarke finished with tasteful decor elements by In The Round House transported visitors to a world where timeless aesthetics met contemporary sophistication.

Guests arrived in the Bohemian Traders’ signature winter warm, earthy tones, perfectly complementing the ambience of the transformed cottage. Let’s explore some of the standout outfits that graced the occasion:


With an innate sense of style, Emily effortlessly embraced the Denim Oversized Shirt in Indigo Wash, perfectly paired with the matching High Waisted Skinny Flare in Indigo Wash Denim. This carefully curated ensemble showcased her impeccable fashion, striking the ideal balance between contemporary trends and timeless elegance.
