Retro love

There is a part of me deep down that will always love mid-century homes decorated top to bottom in retro furnishings. Brazilian architect/designer Guilherme Torres has been featured here several times (my last post here) and often creates vibrant, modern, industrial spaces filled with colourful elements. This time he has the colourful elements in al their glory, but this time the architecture has a more mid-century vibe. Super funky.

A mid-century stunner 

This home is a lesson in picking the perfect wall colours. With a distinctive mid-century feel, San Francisco's Senalee Kapelevich of SVK Interior Design hit the nail on the head in each room. It is the perfect starting point for the homeowners to then add some personal touches. Loving that pink!

Mid-century mod

I think this house is reason enough to move to Salt Lake City - would you agree? Mid-century modern homes are one of my favourite styles - simple architecture but with just enough funk, floor to ceiling windows, often all on one level, a bit of stone detail.... This home has it all and I'd love move in in a heartbeat. Details @ cityhomeCollective.

Stalking Harry Seidler

I'm stalking a modernist gem today. Stalking a piece of Australian architectural history. My Australian midcentury modern friends will be going weak at the knees. Here's what the real esate agent says ... "We live in a disposable society, in an age when so many things in life are too often forgotten or disposed of to make room for bigger and newer things. So it's a precious surprise when one encounters a stunning home that has survived the times, continuing to act as a testament to the era and style of which it was built. It's even more precious, when the architect who designed the home intelligently and specifically, is none other than the father of Australian modern architecture, Harry Seidler." Located in Beaumont, South Australia it is his only home built in this state.

What I love the most is how it is a well loved family home, that kids hang aeroplanes from the ceiling and maps and medals from the walls, that updates are sympathetic to the era and that the pool is original! A small midcentury marvel well loved and well used by a modern family. Perfect and imperfect. Link here while it lasts. (Thanks Andrea for finding this one for us.)

Damon Liss

Are classy mid-century modern spaces your thing? Then I think you'll appreciate the work of New York interior designer Damon Liss. His portfolio is packed with stunning mid-century furnishings, and some beautiful timber pieces that I'm completely drooling over. It's a step back in time but on the other hand timeless and elegant. Some chair porn never hurts. :)
