Icons captured by Michael Wee

One of my favourite books is 50/60/70 Iconic Australian Houses: Three Decades of Domestic Architecture by Karen McCartney (past editor of Inside Out magazine) with photography by Michael Wee. It is a joy to carefully turn its pages and dream of living is some of Australia's best mid-century homes by Harry Seidler, Peter Muller, Roy Grounds, Peter McIntyre, Russell Jack, Robin Boyd, David McGlashan and Neil Everist, Enrico Taglietti, Neville Gruzman, Bruce Rickard, Hugh Buhrich, Ian McKay, Iwan Iwanoff, John Kenny and Ian Collins. Now for those of you who can't get a taste of these domestic masterpieces in your own copy of the book here is a chance at a little sneaky peek. I happened upon the photographer Michael Wee's website and there in the midst of an outstanding portfolio were images from the book. Michael's work is just as incredible as these remarkable houses. If you are a devotee of mid-century design I cannot recommend this book enough.

Joel Sanders

How about a little bit of modern with a smidge of mid-century for your Wednesday afternoon? I've got just the thing for you if you're like me and the mention of "modern" and "mid-century" makes your heart flutter. Joel Sanders, Architect is based in NYC and the firm has won countless awards and been featured in The New York Times, Dwell, Wallpaper* and Interior Design. Below are photos from a couple of their projects, the fist group being a San Francisco duplex penthouse that is to die for, and following that is a New York loft renovation that includes an indoor urban garden.

I'll take one of these to go

I absolutely adore the home of model An Oost and her boyfriend. It's a mansion in Ghent, Belgium that they run as a bed & breakfast. It's got great bones, and I am smitten with all the classic mid-century found throughout and the quirky touches like one orange doorway and a beanbag chair in the bathroom.
