Entries in midcentury (167)
Time to escape the everyday. Time for a virtual getaway. Perched on the slopes Dangar Island (in the Hawkesbury River just north of Sydney) is a mid century dream, a designer home in the Australian bush. Can you smell the eucalyptus and hear the continuous thrum of cicadas in the trees or are you all agog at the iconic furniture pieces sprinkled about the stylish interiors? I think we should stop imagining and go there in real life. The Dangar Island House, with interiors by Karen McCartney (design author and founding editor of Inside Out) is available for holiday rental. Start packing your bags.
What to do when the house you are refurbishing is perhaps the most beautiful example of Le Corbusier-inspired architecture in Johannesburg? How to breathe new life into an iconic building by local Modernist hero Rex Martienssen? Keep it true, keep it real and let the owner's personality shine through. I'm green with envy over that verdant entry. Greenside Residence by Tonic Design.
You know I'm nosey. I like to stalk people's homes online. I like to look in every nook and cranny. The only thing better would be to actually stay in other people's homes and really look in every nook and cranny. I'm smitten by this Chelsea apartment with its fabulous collection of mid century pieces and a yellow kitchen that I never knew I wanted to replicate at my place. It would make the perfect base for any London foray because guess what? It's a vacation rental available through The Plum Guide. You can find out more here
