Stephen Roberts

Stephen Roberts is an Australian designer living in New York. His clean minimalist lines are not cold or impersonal but full of the joy that simplicity of line can bring. Spaces and furniture are strong and plain but also beautiful and zen like. This is just one of the interiors he has designed. Check out the rest of his portfolio. It takes restraint, good spatial awareness and a lot of talent to pull off this sort of interior. Stephen Roberts does it masterfully.

Flickr finds - rattan chairs

My bad, it seems I forgot to add Lori Pickert's gorgeous photo of her rattan chair, which I have since added below. Thanks for the link Lori!

Open for business

Yes it's time for the shameless self promotion. My etsy store Desire to Inspire by midcenturyjo is open at last. Please drop by and take a look. I'll be updating regularly with new work!


Big ginger dog

By now most of you would have read that Victoria's dog Cooper has passed away. Kim and I just wanted to add our condolences. These Cooper drawings are for you Victoria.

P.S. I did say big ginger dog but I think I went a bit orange in the watercolour department so here's an uncoloured Cooper.


If I was a retro room

I so want to be this wonderful retro room from the 60s. Sophisticated, silver and sleek with a chinoiserie twist and a Platner side table. But after a few too many white wines at lunch I think I need to be this dark soothing retro room from the 60s. Love them both by the way!
