A modern midcentury pool

You could be excused for thinking that you had time travelled poolside to 50s Palm Springs - breezeblock walls, long sleek lounges for sunning, architectural plantings, graphic black and white palette with that oasis of blue water screams Mad Men and Sinatra. Except this is Perth in Western Australia and the time is now. Midcentury mod perfection. Applecross residence by Tim Davies Landscaping.

A mid-century renovation in California

A simple, somewhat minimalist, mid-century renovation in Royal Woods, California by 22 INTERIORS. Super bright and modern, I would have loved to see a bit more colour and "stuff", and maybe those ceiling beams left unpainted, but the marble and banquette in the kitchen make up for it. :)

An open concept mid-century remodel 

Now this is one seriously cool remodel. It is so good I sent some photos of the kitchen to one of my sisters who is looking to renovate hers soon. I hope to gawd hers ends up looking similar. Not many kitchens have a little funk like this one. Kudos to Veneer Designs on a job really well done. Let's start with a before photo:

Look at it now!

A recently transplanted couple of creatives, who were also expecting twins during the remodel, had a clear vision of how to update and refine their post and beam home tucked into the treetops of Pacific Palisades. Taking cues from nature as well as the home's architecture, an earthy and brave interpretation of midcentury design was applied to the new kitchen layout and adjoining spaces.  Mahogany cabinets with color blocking, red oak rift cut wall paneling, epoxy floors, glazed thin brick specialty tile, and ceramic light pendants commissioned from Heather Rosenman come together to create a unique composition.

More from Nathalie Rives

"An invitation to live, evolve, share .." It's the philosophy behind the work of Lyon-based interior stylist Nathalie Rives. This apartment with its great bones, a mid-century vibe to the furniture and fabulous art is warm and elegant with bold use of colour and that certain French style. Is it just me, or do you agree, that the French do the sweetest children's rooms?

A home in Portland by Bright Designlab

Loving this mid-century vibe Portland home designed by Bright Designlab. A newlywed couple, came to us having just purchased their home in NE Portland: a completely modernized, traditional Portland home. The scope of the project was to fully furnish the spaces and make their new nest livable, functional; reflecting the couple's undeniable charismatic personality... with room to grow. The shingled home is three stories tall (now with renovated attic floor), and very light, bright, and open, with traditional moldings and details. Bright Designlab pulled together a selection of classic pieces along with handcrafted, vintage and custom furniture to complement.
