I have a thing for eclectic spaces, where it appears that the homeowner does alot of thrift shopping and most pieces have not originated from Ikea. This simple yet eclectic apartment in Madrid caught my attention. It has some fun, graphic art mixed with mid-century furnishings and accessories (ie. beautiful West German vases!). I personally would have maybe added some colour to a wall or 2 (maybe they aren't allowed) and I find the dining room very underwhelming. Other than that it is a wonderful, bright open space that is very inviting. Via Architectural Digest Spain, photos by Asier Rua.
I am stoked to feature this home by Lauren Geremia of Geremia Design now that I got my hands on these fabulous juicy photos (by Melissa Kaseman btw). It is mid-century sophisticated with an youthful edge. We wanted to give our client an updated and contemporary look for his one story Craftsmen home, including furniture with detailing that nods to the architecture of the space. Our client travels frequently, but when he is home likes to host dinner parties and cook for his friends. We created a comfortable living and dining space that can accommodate guests, and curated a evocative selection of contemporary art that suits his taste. LED lighting and a custom designed hand oxidized brass media unit are design highlights of the project. (Previous features of her work here, here and here)
I have always wanted to live in house with mid-century architecure, and I have a huge girl crush on Jessica Helgerson, so I absolutely had to share this home. This project was a thorough remodel of a 1950s house by prominent Portland architect Saul Zaik. We thoroughly reworked the interior floor plan, relocating the master bedroom and bathroom to the rear of the house, creating a mudroom, office, and laundry room, changing the proportions of a family room that had been expanded and was out of scale with the other rooms, upgrading the windows throughout, and vaulting the ceilings in the addition.

I found this really cool New Zealand home with a midcentury modern vibe and lots and lots of wood and had to share. Designed by Bull O'Sullivan Architecture, it has some interesting features like the groupings of light fixtures throughout the main space (an electrician's nightmare) and the floor to ceiling window looking out onto the backyard. I'm not sure I could live with this much wood but it certainly makes the space feel warm and "earthy".
