Not just for show

I LOVE the following home that was featured on New York Social Diary a few weeks ago. It's the townhouse of Lisa Mahar, a mother of three and owner of a toy store. I think it's so great that she's got toys and photos of her kids and their artwork scattered all over, and mixed in with all sorts of mid-century classic furniture. It's a space that is perfectly comfortable and perfectly lived in. And cool.

Welcome scandinavian.modern

Jo and I would like to welcome the folks of scandinavian.modern, based in Winnipeg, as our new sponsor. I just love being able to promote Canadians who know a thing or two about great furniture. If you love the mid-century variety, you MUST check them out. I have never seen so much gorgeous rosewood in one place. I think I've changed my mind about teak - rosewood is just stunning!!! Here's a bit about their shop:

"We hand pick and make available primarily original, vintage, mid-century modern, Danish and other Scandinavian furniture. We admire and stock pieces from such designers as Hans Wegner, Arne Jacobsen, Finn Juhl, Børge Mogensen, Kai Kristiansen, Arne Vodder, Ole Wanscher and Hans Olsen. We also stock pieces that may not have been designed by a well known designer but were crafted by elite danish cabinetmakers and are unique and showcase scandinavian functionality and appearance."

Here is a little peek at some of the (*drool*) items they've got in stock. LOOOVE the first one pictured - it's a table and a planter!

A retro renovation

Pam of Retro Renovation wrote the other day about a blast-from-the-past mid-century modern home she posted and I loved it so much I decided to post it today instead of doing my typical Flickr finds.

This 1962 home is owned by Greg McKinney and is located in Granada Hills, California. Like Pam, I really like the use of grasscloth on the walls, pops of orange throughout the spaces and the incredible vintage lighting. What a fabulous job you've done Greg! And thanks Pam for sharing this with us!

Mid-century and marvelous!

I found the following ranch home on the website of New York Spaces magazine and OH LA LA I think I've died and gone to heaven. It's full of mid-century furnishings, it's colourful, it's quirky and I freaking LOVE IT. My favourite part is the front door - I have a similar door (but the inset carved squares run in a row down the center) and I'm itching to get some bold colours to paint it.

David Jimenez

In my humble opinion, there is absolutely nothing more fabulous than mid-century modern and Hollywood regency. Pair these two styles (think Jonathan Adler) and I'm in heaven. PURE HEAVEN. My heart races when I come across portfolios as incredible as that of David Jimenez. I cannot believe Jo and I have not posted his work before. This genius of design has now made it to my top 5 list. His Palm Springs house, below, is something that dreams (mine anyway) are made of.
