Mid century kitchen love

Recently I've been seduced by English country-style kitchens but every so often I return to my first love. This bright white modern kitchen has more than enough mid century to make me smile. From the Marina Residence in Huntington Harbor, California, a mid century remodel by Jette Creative.

Stalking the other half of a concrete block warehouse

As promised yesterday I'm stalking the other half of a warehouse in Melbourne's Collingwood. What a difference! Yesterday's conversion was modern industrial. Today's is a mix of traditional, eclectic, a touch of industrial meets country kitchen and a whole lot of designer loft. Not surprisingly it is the studio of interior designer Diane Bergeron. Part design studio, part client showroom, part inner city pad. And it has that ceiling high bookcase that is featured on thousand upon thousands of Pinterest boards. It sold last month for $1.8 million. Link here while it lasts.

Stalking concrete blocks

I'm in Collingwood an inner-city suburb of Melbourne and I'm stalking one half of an old concrete block warehouse. Inside it's soaring ceilings and white walls, black steel windows and open spaces. From the mix of mid century and contemporary furniture to the striking artwork it's the quintessential industrial meets modern living conversion. It appears that's it is being used as a commercial premises and I'm stratching my head as to where I'd put the bed . You must view the listing video and leave your critique of the acting in the comments. Link here while it lasts.

P.S. Stayed tuned for tomorrow's post on the other half of this building. A completely different take on the space.

Collected

collected:

  1. brought or placed together; forming an aggregation from various sources:
  2. having control; calm

Perhaps an equal share of both. What a beautiful pied-à-terre in New York's Chelsea by Montreal-based Les Ensembliers.
