Karin Björkquist

Posted on Fri, 25 Jun 2010 by midcenturyjo

Let’s end the week with a fab portfolio by yet another super talented Swedish photographer. What is it about the whole scandi style that has us all purring with pleasure? Is it the relaxed and cosy family orientated homes? The simple and practical approach with lashings of personality to cheer up the dark winter months and celebrate the fleeting summer. Whatever it is Karin Björkquist captures it perfectly whether white and bright, dark and moody, jewel like boho or classic gustavian. Brilliant!








Reader requests – banquettes

Mary Anne of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia wrote us with a request for a post on banquette dining/eating areas. She found the post I did back in ’07, but wanted some more ideas. So here are more banquette seating for your viewing pleasure.

Gentl & Hyers over and over

Posted on Thu, 24 Jun 2010 by midcenturyjo


Is it wrong to love a portfolio so much that you stalk it? This is the second time I have featured work by photographers Gentl & Hyers. Can’t get enough especially when they update their portfolio on their rep’s site (their own is still under construction). It’s the richness, the jewel like tones, the rich almost thick light (you could cut it with a knife). Truth be told I did sneak in my all time favourite. It’s the last one. So lush!






A funky apartment

Posted on Wed, 23 Jun 2010 by KiM

I found the following apartment on MICASA and knew I had to share it on the blog ASAP because it’s got everything – the white walls I am currently coveting, bold colour spattered throughout, a mix of all good things vintage – mid-century and ethnic. And OMG I cannot tell you how badly I want that huge ornate mirror in the bedroom for my dressing room.

Amy Neunsinger

Love, love, love Amy Neunsinger. Actually I should say love her work :)… and her home 🙂 Maybe I should actually say that I’m incredibly jealous. Not only is she a fabulous photographer but some of these shots are of her own gorgeous home. She captures perfectly the light, airy white on white vibe that is so hot now. Want to walk into these images and make myself right at home.
