Mountain shack

I had to share one more project from Serge Castella. A mountain shack with ancient stone walls and heavy beams filled with mid century classics and a modular sofa by a fire that is calling a siren song. "Come to me Jo. Throw your design weary bones down upon me and snuggle in those covers." I, of course, have no resistance. I love this space.

Monochrome mid mod

He's the master of mixing eras, of taking a limited palette and adding richness and interest through texture and shape. French-born, Spanish-based Serge Castella's take on mid modern is fresh, artistic and just a little quirky. Who could mix an elegant French commode with Roman amphora and still remain true to the mid mod aesthetic? His background in fashion and antiques is obvious in his interior design work. Stylish, chic and totally individual.

Sophisticated mid-century modern 

The designers at cityhomeCOLLECTIVE were asked to update the interior of this Tudor home for clients whose style preference is a blend of classic antiques, glam, and mid-century modern. The resulting fusion of these styles is unique and sophisticated. I'm loving the wallpaper choices!

Stalking 2 years apart

I'm stalking a classic 60s pad in Melbourne's salubrious suburb of Toorak but it's a case of déjà vu. I stalked this home 2 years ago in a leftovers post. As the building is being sold as a "knock it down and build an architect designed 5 bedroom, pool and 3 car upgrade" you can see that nothing has changed to the shell. One thing that has is the styling. The current incarnation is all scandi modern while in its previous life it was mid century minimal. Which do you prefer? I know that I'd be happy with either. OK, OK I like the scandi better but that's not the point. I think I like the old 60s groove better than any Toorak McMansion that would replace it. Link for the current sale here and the previous sale here.

Mid-century + boho + glam

I am not sure how Los Angeles based interior designer Bryan Wark managed to mix mid-century and boho and glam elements together to create such an awesome vibe but he did and I LOVE it. This home is stunning and OMG look at all those massive windows! It's so bright and easy on the eye yet has some fabulous statement pieces for some BLAM.
