Leather, wood and stone

I fell in love/hate with this cottage/home in Spain featured in a recent issue of Nuevo Estilo. It's huge open layout is perfect for cottage life and would be a fantastic gathering space of lots of friends and family. The combination of rustic (reclaimed wood, stone) mixed with a leather chesterfield and plaid chair also joined with some mid-century chairs and tables - bringing such disparate pieces together really works here. However, I am baffled by all of the window treatments - massively long purple curtains (why purple? WHY??) and blinds hung way too high. AGH!! The one red, one silver light fixtures in the bathroom...bad idea. (I won't even discuss the bedding). And it is disappointing to see such a lazy approach to the ceiling and beams. Spraying it ALL white instead of leaving some of the raw wood showing, or at least the steal pieces. (Designed by Kotablue and Mercedes de las Heras)

NOVONO - apartment #1

This is the first of two projects I wanted to share with you from Berlin interior architecture firm NOVONO. Founder and director Nora von Nordenskjöld designed this apartment in Berlin with a distinctive global vibe. Swathed in rich earth tones with a mix of ethnic and mid-century furnishings, this modern residence is serene and welcoming. I love every inch of it.  

P.S. Sorry folks, due to a shortage of entries, pets on furniture should hopefully be back next week.

Mike Jacobs Architecture

I'd like to share a couple of beautiful homes designed by Mike Jacobs Architecture that both have mid-century modern vibes. This first one, located in Los Angeles, is as palatial as they come and is a classy, toned-down version of mid-century design. The second is located in Los Feliz, and was a 630 sq ft addition and complete interior renovation of a 1920's Mediterranean-style bungalow. It has a bright and energizing mid-century vibe that is much more "Palm Springs" and casual than the first. My favourite. (Check out another of their projects here)

A mid-century loft

Some random googling the other day led me to this incredible Brooklyn loft and I had to share it with you all. It is the home of Brin Reinhardt and Nathan Ursch of Breuckelen Berber - 960 sq ft of gorgeous loftiness located in a converted sandpaper factory. They have it all decked out with to-die-for classic mid-century pieces that create such a vivacious, eye-catching space. And OMG, their cats are named Charles and Ray (the Eameses). Gawd I love this!
