Courtney Nye - mid-century modern 

I have been a fan of Courtney Nye's designs since featuring some bits of projects here and this kid's playroom. This mid-century home is a dream with tons of windows letting in all kinds of natural light (If this were my home I would have an obscene amount of plants) and the timber ceiling that feels right at home while living amidst the trees.  The mid-century modern vibe of the decor suits this home perfectly.

When bits of colour shine against white

I love this Victorian home I found via jj Locations. Bright white walls and painted floors make the perfect backdrop for subtle bits of colours added through vintage mid century chairs, art, a touch of wallpaper and accessories. Yes, I apparently have a thing with Victorian homes in the UK. They are always fabulous.

Five Doors Down

HELLOOOOOOOO dream home! I have said it before and I will never stop saying it - there is nothing I love more than a period home filled with mid-century and random vintage furnishings and lighting. Five Doors Down is a location home in the UK (of course, because they have the most incredible  homes) that is funky and just my style. Especially when there is an appearance by a black leather Togo sectional. Available via lordshippark.com.

Cape Cod dreaming

For all those mid century aficionados out there sometimes a dream can come true. You may never get to own a classic 60s beach shack on Cape Cod but you can rent it for a week. Hatch Cottage, an experimental house designed by Jack Hall. An almost untouched time capsule with panoramic water views and modernist simplicity. (Perhaps some of the photos could have been styled better but that's a minor quibble if you have a major crush on modernism.) Via The Modern House.

A remodeled home in San Francisco

As I prepare this post ready I am packing my bags and booking a flight to San Francisco because I am moving in!!! This house is amazing! Thank you to interior designers Lisa and Tiffany of MANSFIELD + O’NEIL for sharing this project. Our clients loved their prime location in a sylvan setting of the Bay Area (Marin) hills; however, they rejected the suburban aesthetics of the former house and were tired of its dark, compartmentalized interiors. The complete remodel transformed the house into a light-filled, open plan jewel-box of a house that now delights the family and fosters gracious California indoor-outdoor living. The furniture and finishings are edited and modern, but still approachable and family-friendly, accommodating two professional parents, twin teenage boys, and a lively dog. The focus of this project was on quality of space, materials, and finishings – not the quantity – and it's restrained footprint and interior epitomizes clean, considered design.
