Happy midcentury

I have a fantastic makeover to share with you today sent in by the folks at Indiana-based Susan Yeley Interiors. Let me start right off the bat with some before photos. From totally boring.....

...to totally awesome with a midcentury vibe!! Here's the scoop: This small midcentury home south of campus has great bones but lacked vibrancy—a je ne sais quoi that the clients were searching to savoir once and for all. SYI worked with them to nail down a design direction and furniture plan, and they decided to invest in the big-impact items first: built-ins and lighting and a fresh paint job that included a beautiful deep blue-green line around the windows. The vintage rug was an Etsy score at an awesome price, but only after the client spent months scouring options and sources online that matched the vision and dimensions of the plan. A good year later, the West Elm sofa went on sale, so the client took advantage; some time after that, they painted the kitchen, created the drop zone / bench area, and rounded out the room with occasional tables and accessories.

Latest from Fiona Lynch

Built by a builder for his young family, this Balwyn, Melbourne home is the latest project from interior designer Fiona Lynch.

"A minimal approach to materials has created an interior which is reflective and relaxing in feel. Concrete, timber and stone are the main materials in this project. Aged brass and grey stained oak cabinetry compliment the minimal approach to materials."

Sophisticated, restrained, always with an eye to detail Lynch's design is beautifully resolved.

Inner City Blue

A loft renovation in Stockholm is stylish, relaxed and timeless, a bit like the inspiration pictures that informed the project - a brown cashmere coat, a pair of sand-colored sneakers and a plaza in Rome.

"When it was our turn to renew the the 200 square meter apartment our first step was to simplify everything we felt was too much, in terms of dimensions and materials. The task was to create a relaxed, soft environment and the main interior feature is a dark, low-lying base line that runs like a unifying horizon through the whole apartment. All walls and ceilings are painted in apricot pink and sandy beige tones which gives a soft, hazy atmosphere, creating a dynamic but gentle contrast to the blue-gray base. Nothing in the apartment is white!!"

A home in Saint-Germain 

A little dose of France gorgeousness, also from Marianne Tiegen. Gawd she ROCKS! (And in case you forgot, there was this Ibiza pad and this to-die-for apartment in Paris that Jo featured last summer)
