A library that’s central to all

Posted on Thu, 1 Mar 2018 by midcenturyjo

Haussmannian architecture, signature furniture pieces and a foyer now converted to a library full of books. Just about ticks all the boxes for my perfect Paris apartment. I think I’ll be moving in to this Alma Marceau residence by Studio CMP.

Southern belle

I don’t think I’ve seen such a lovely entrance hall in ages. The colour, the textures, the mix of old and new, traditional but not at all stuffy, country but not saccharine sweet. If you love these three showhouse rooms by Ashley Gilbreath Interior Design you must see the rest of this Montgomery, Alabama based design firm’s portfolio.

When it is not about the decor

Posted on Sun, 1 Nov 2015 by KiM

This is one of those rare occasions where I feature a home that is lacking in the decor department but the architecture and finishes more than make up for it. All of the black painted trim/stairs/doors, the tile foyer floor, the stained glass front entrance, THE PERFECT KITCHEN, the wide plank flooring, and the tiled bathrooms make this home a dream. Then add in all of your favourite artwork and vintage furnishings and BAM! New on the Shoot Factory roster.

Stalking by the light of the moon

I have always thought that the best soundtrack to have in “playing” at home is the sound of waves lapping on a beach. I guess I can also say that the best “artwork” is a stunning view. I’m stalking a Peter Stutchbury designed home in Newport, northern Sydney. Don’t miss the video. It really helps make sense of the layout. Link here while it lasts.
