Cosmopolitan Condo

Posted on Wed, 21 Mar 2018 by midcenturyjo

Award winning Los Angeles based Black Lacquer Design say they have a a penchant for all things pretty. Perhaps we better add edgy, fresh and fun. And their name? It might just have something to do with the belief that almost every room can benefit from a bit of black and a little lacquer. I just didn’t expect it on the ceiling and I must say I’m a convert!


Brazilian drama

Posted on Wed, 21 Mar 2018 by midcenturyjo

It’s dramatic. It’s stylish. It’s edgy and it’s the show home (or should I say apartment) by Studio ro+ca for CasaCor Rio 2017, the largest and most complete exhibition of architecture, interior design and landscaping in the Americas showcasing the best of the best. All I can say is ouch! Brazilian design is so hot.

Earthy in Nanoose Bay

Posted on Tue, 20 Mar 2018 by KiM

When you live along the edge of a bay, it only seems right to keep your spaces earthy and neutral. A touch of blue to bring the colour of the water in doesn’t hurt. What a gorgeous, simple project by Vancouver designer Angela Robinson

Modern industrial by Regan Baker

Posted on Tue, 20 Mar 2018 by KiM

I love this really fun, mid-century modern home designed by Regan BakerSecond home, stylish brewery owners, decided to hire Regan Baker Design to transform their beloved Duboce Park home into an organic modern oasis reflecting their modern aesthetic and sustainable, green conscience lifestyle. From hops to floors, we worked extensively with our design savvy clients to provide a new footprint for their kitchen, dining and living room area, redesigned three bathrooms, reconfigured and designed the master suite, and replaced an existing spiral staircase with a new modern, steel staircase.

Stalking Bonnie and Neil

Posted on Mon, 19 Mar 2018 by midcenturyjo

Sssshhh! I’m stalking the home of Bonnie and Neil, the Melbourne-based studio creating beautiful hand crafted products for the home. I don’t know why I feel so coy. It’s not as if I know the owners but I’ve been a serious fan of their work for years. Now I get to see how they live in their own home. Think bright and colourful, botanical prints, artwork and their signature wooden tiles. It’s fun and fresh and it could be yours. Link here while it lasts.
