Midcentury and modern

An original 1950's post & beam house and a newly designed addition. Midcentury aesthetic married with honesty of materials. A beautiful transition between inside and out. A design that respects the site and the natural vegetation (yes that is a tree wending its way through the room). Privacy and a sense of voyeurism. Steel and wood and glass. It's love on my part. The Runyon Canyon house by Mike Jacobs Architecture.

Mid century + pastel

A mid century modern home designed mostly in white accented with of pastel pink, blue and green isn't so typical. And I LOVE that. I found this Melbourne home by interior designers Hecker Guthrie to be so unique and intriguing. The palette is so soothing, the perfect place to come home to after a hard day at work. It's pleasing to the eye and comfortable yet still very modern. How to do white right. And how to use pastels in small doses without becoming shabby chic. It's Rachel Ashwell meets Dwell magazine. :) (Via Urbis magazine. )

Ann Wolf

Ann Wolf is an interior designer based in Texas who is certainly not one dimensional. She has designed a Shaker-inspired farmhouse in Colorado, an Adirondack-style summer house in upstate New York, a mid-century modern in Houston, and a "Hollywood-Glam" pied-a-terre in Manhattan. Whatever the style, her spaces are always elegant yet practical, sophisticated yet whimsical yet. I'm not typically drawn to massive doses of pattern and colour, but she really knows how to mix it up and isn't afraid to be bold with colour combinations. I really admire that.

Mini Moderns

Check out this funky mid-century modern abode in Camberwell, London that was featured in Heart Home, one of my favourite online magazines. It's the home of designers Keith Stephenson and Mark Hampshire of the shop Mini Moderns. It is SO FUN - mid century designed homes always make me smile. The patterns, colours and not-so-serious decor is so appealing. Love this!

Michael Wells encore

Sometimes a picture traps you, pulls you in, seduces you. An image grows into imagination, inspiration. Something as simple as light and film, a shutter and a bucket load of talent takes your breath away. (OK we all know that the light and film thing is old hat and don't get me to explain the intricacies of digital imagining because I can't. As for the simplicity of a bucketful of talent I let the hyperbole run away from me.) All I really know is that photographer Michael Wells has "it", the gift, the knack. Enjoy his portfolio .... so much more new work since last time he popped up on our pages here.
