Studio McGee encore

It's no secret that we love design firm Studio McGee here on Desire to Inspire. Their homes are always so fresh and family friendly, stylish but never pretentious. I'm particularly taken by their Claybourne Project. The combined family room/kitchen is fabulous but it's the office that has me green with envy.

Prospect Heights Brownstone

The restoration of this New York Brownstone saw floors replaced, windows reinstalled, doors rebuilt and all the boring but very important services updated. It had been a wreck but in the hands of Brent Allen Buck of Brooklyn-based Buck Projects the late 19th century building became a home again, its Italianate features restored to their former glory while a new focus was placed on modern open plan living. Think mod cons with a mid century collection of furniture and all the while the beautiful old bones grounding it all. "Approached with sensitivity, today can rise to be the equal of yesterday."

A love letter

Dear Simpson Jacoby Architecture,

I just wanted to pen a short note to let you know how much I love your work on this old house. Sympathetic, stylish, simple and soft. Love the colour palette, the whitewashed floors, the kitchen and the restored, sinuous stairs rising to that dark and moody studio office. Love how your client has filled it gently and thoughtfully with their possessions and how you knew it would be just so. Love it all.

Regards,

Jo

Feeling Obsolete

I could have called this post "Working on a Saturday" or "Living in the shop". I could mention feelings of cupidity, obsession and fascination. You see I have been held in thrall by Obsolete for a number of years now but unfortunately I live across the world and have never stepped inside its doors. This fine art gallery, antique furniture emporium and events venue in Culver City, California is a magical mystery tour of the obscure, the strange, the archaic and the beautiful. If you want to disappear down the rabbit hole this weekend then immerse yourself in their website.

Jason Arnold

Sophisticated yet liveable, classy and timeless, old mixed with new, and a love of brass accents that I give 2 thumbs up for. These are the spaces of Jason Arnold Interiors of Nashville, Tennessee. I need at least another 5 minutes to drink in that kitchen above. It's everything. (Photos: Alyssa Rosenheck)
