Modern home tour

Maureen of The Inglenook Decor wanted to share with our readers some photos of a home that was featured in the Modern Home Tour in Austin. I love this house - the structure is incredible and the decor is (mostly) modern/mid-century of which I am forever a fan - and how cool that some walls are magnetic! (Photos by Andrew Chan)

P.S. Speaking of modern, 2Modern is having a giveaway NOW on Facebook to win this Blu Dot ottoman!



MidMod bungalow in the UK

Here's the first of 2 mid-century modern homes I will be sharing with you today. This one comes from David and Scott: We're a small creative agency in Berkshire living in a Mid Century bungalow on the development where Truffaut filmed 'Fahrenheit 451' back in 1966 - in fact, our bungalow is of the same design as the one in the film. Though the actual property from the film has been sadly 'renovated' beyond recognition, we've rescued ours from dilapidation and given it a fresh, modern, modernist feel having remodelled it both inside and out ourselves. The bungalow has been a 4 year labour of love — we live and work in it (using Bedroom 4 as our Studio) — it's a light-filled haven and we love it... but we've got itchy feet and would love to apply ourselves to another property and help it to shine as originally intended. We've created a microsite + a full booklet covering the history & provenance of the Development - 'the estate of the future that time forgot' - plus a full description of the property. The transformation is extraordinary. I freaking LOVE IT! It was so awful when they purchased it I had to include some before photos to show all their hard work.

Stable Acre

If you've seen the Inside Out 2011 Annual Renovating & Decorating Guide (and you must see the Inside Out 2011 Annual Renovating & Decorating Guide) you'll recognise the converted stables home of gallerist Stuart Shave. I found it again at inspace Locations and the architect David Kohn's site. Open-plan orientated around a simple modernist fireplace, light spills in through walls of glass. It's warm and simple, mid-century and modern. Rough brick is smoothed with white paint, rustic and sparse yet sophisticated and softened. And for an art dealer strangely devoid of art. Moroccan pom-pom blanket anyone?

Mid century wonderful 2

High in the hills above L.A. it's hip and fab or is that groovy? A white box jewel of mid-century design. Clean lines, great views, and furniture to die for. Interior designer Darryl Wilson's work has featured before on DTI and it seems it is still drinks by the pool with the cool set. Love it!

Mid century wonderful 

I fell off a ladder today and sprained my wrist hence this is a post I had ready to go for next week. One fingered typing is no fun but I know you'll forgive me when you see this gorgeous house. My love to Pia whose Brisbane book launch I am missing as I type.

Is this what mid century heaven looks like? Oh my what a beautiful thing ... stone, glass, wood and steel in La Cañada in the Sierra Madre foothills. But this vintage classic is brand new with interiors cleverly fashioned by Jamie Bush. It's fresh and vibrant and Mad Man modern. Too cool. So hot!
