…. these bedrooms styled by Sophie Andersson. I’ve featured her before but the first is new and the second has always been a favourite. Sweet dreams!

Carter Williamson encore

Posted on Fri, 3 Apr 2009 by midcenturyjo

See – if you ask nicely and wait patiently sometimes wishes come true. Websites get updated or redesigned. Australian architectural firm Carter Williamson design fabulous modern homes, clean and minimal. They turn their backs on the bustle of the outside world and address the private areas within without losing that inside/out feel. And their kitchens! We’ve featured them before and Shaun Carter has even sent us photos as they updated their website. Now the site is live and there are so many more wonderful images and a wonderful look at work in progress and concepts. Time to revisit and be inspired.

Double take

Last year I posted about New York design firm 2Michaels, founded by twins Joan and Jayne. Joan emailed the other day to let us know that both her and her sister’s apartments were featured in a recent issue of Interior Design. Joan lives in Jayne’s former 1,200 sq ft apartment, “the cheapest two-bed, two-bath on the Upper West Side” while Jayne scored an affordable 1,100 sq ft Midtown apartment with East River views that had been untouched by the former owner for 40 years. Jayne’s apartment required alot of work while Joan’s required alot of furniture (she moved in with only 3 pieces). The results of both apartments is a mid-century vintage vibe and lots of iconic furniture and accessories, and so much stunning artwork. (Thanks Joan and Jayne for sharing your homes with us!)

This first group of photos is Jayne’s apartment.

These next photos are of Joan’s apartment.
