California dreaming

Oh yes dreams are made of homes like this. San Francisco architects YamaMar have breathed new life into this mid century home in the Berkeley Hills, enhancing the indoor/outdoor living and upgrading finishes. Then Alison Damonte worked her magic, staging the home with a subtle mix of mid century and modern pieces accentuated by bright colour pops.

What I want

I want to sit on that sofa, rifle through the cupboards, flick the light switches on and off, pour myself a drink and pat the dog. I want to squish my toes into all the rugs, work in that office, run my fingers across the bathroom stone, take shelter from the midday sun in the cabana and swim in the pool. What I really want is this Hollywood Hills house by Veneer Designs.

Laid back mid century

Australia's Gold Coast is a tourist glitter strip with showy apartment blocks that grow ever higher and ostentatious McMansions devouring two, three or even more original holiday homes. How refreshing to see a mid century gem returned to its laid back 50's hipster glory with a mix of classic, contemporary and custom designed pieces by Brisbane-based Anju Designs. (Original architectural design by Bill Conrad, renovation by Paul Uhlmann Architects.)

Brown Design Group

I love this stylish contemporary family home with a mid century riff and loads of personality. Light and bright with great use of three quarter partition walls to divide spaces, the rooms flow easily into each other and the outdoors. The master suite is fabulous with a dressing room I'd kill for and "pool" in and outside the room. Ranch style redo done right by Los Angeles and Santa Barbara based Brown Design Group.

Sunday inspiration

I was poking around Marie Claire Maison yesterday and came across a few homes that really captured my attention so I thought I would share a couple of them. This Marrakech home has gorgeous features that are typical of Moroccan architecture but the owners have spiced things up with some mid-century modern furnishings. A quirky combination, and I love it.
