Eclectic on a Sunday

While I try and snap out of my cottage coma (wow, a day of fresh air can do wonders), please enjoy this funky, eclectic location home I found via 1st Option. It is a mid-century chair porn delight, with really beautiful architecture as so many British homes have. Also could not help but notice the flooring throughout...*sigh*.

Inside Out

I'm always excited when I see an email from Inside Out magazine's managing editor Lee Tran Lam. It means that the latest issue is about to hit the stands and that we are getting a sneak peek at one of the homes within the cover. And what a home! Be still my heart. Here's what Lee Tran had to say.

This home belongs to interior stylist and buyer Karen Kelly Tarasin – built in the style of architect Harry Seidler, her house cleverly matches the modernist feel with lots of era–evoking items. There are even "ancient" stools in the kitchen that are so comfortable that – when Karen tries to bring in any additional seating – her kids make her return any possible replacements. Karen has also worked for Vampt Vintage Design and Mark Tuckey, so she's got a solid background in casting her eye over furniture that best suits a space. 

There's more info in the story, by Lynne Testoni, styled by Claire Delmar and photographed by Prue Ruscoe.

I don't know about you but I'm packing my bags and moving in. I say that on a regular basis but this time it is no idle threat. Aussie readers can pick up their copy of the May/June Inside Out on Thursday. Don't fret if you aren't in Australia because you can read along on  ZinioGoogle Play and the Apple Newsstand.

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.
