Mid-century modern in the English countryside

A whole pile of mid-centry modern/retro fabulousness to end off the work week. Surrounded by beautiful English countryside, this vast new-build features floor-to-ceiling windows which highlight the stunning rural location. The sensation of bringing the outside in is further emphasised through the open-plan layout which flows seamlessly from room to room, offering the perfect space for socialising. Teeming with unexpected details at every turn, iconic pieces such as an Eero Saarinen table and Warren Platner chair elevate the space from ordinary to extraordinary. A unique sunken lounge exquisitely framed by a statement pendant and futuristic basement bar with a cinema and music room offer areas for both formal and informal entertaining in this inviting country home.

Mid century kitchen love

Recently I've been seduced by English country-style kitchens but every so often I return to my first love. This bright white modern kitchen has more than enough mid century to make me smile. From the Marina Residence in Huntington Harbor, California, a mid century remodel by Jette Creative.

So French so fabulous

Oh the French. They have that certain something. Effortless style and sophistication. A little bit rustic with simple luxury, primitive next to midcentury, vibrant colour playing against whitewash. An understanding of what is needed and what is not. Be style my beating heart. Maison des champs, Sainte-Foys-Lès-Lyon by interior stylist Nathalie Rives.

Mid-century Parisian chic in Monaco

An apartment in Monaco can only be one thing - STYLISH! This mid-century vibing pad has a Parisian chic vibe that I have come to expect from Monaco-based architectural duo Humbert & Poyet. The lighting throughout this space is fantastic - especially that spunik light over the dining table. WOWZERS!!!

Riad Mena & Beyond

Hump day? What hump day? No we're all on a virtual getaway to Marrakech, to Riad Mena & Beyond. Just when I though my love affair with all things Moroccan might be waning I'm smitten by this traditional riad with it's minimalist interiors and iconic 20th century furniture pieces thrown into the mix.  The "beyond" bit? Forty-five minutes outside of Marrakech, at the foot of the Atlas Mountains is the Riad Mena & Beyond outpost. A fully-functioning permaculture farm where you can spend the day in wonderful nature, enjoy a seasonal picnic, or even spend some nights in the rustically charming houses. I'll be back at the main house waiting by the pool.
