Wendi Young

Posted on Thu, 17 Jun 2010 by midcenturyjo

It’s in the details you know. Details lift an average space into something special. Icing on the cake is the cliché I believe. Wendi Young creates homes with an understated elegance, classic but not contrived and always with the well considered detail. It looks effortless but of course it is not.  Her beautiful outdoor spaces have me dreaming of summer in the chill of a southern hemisphere winter.  Don’t miss the shoe-a-holic’s idea of heaven.

Adela Cabré

Barcelona-based interior designer Adela Cabré has a knack for creating unique spaces that are timeless, moody and hip. The spaces below are my favourites from her portfolio – there’s something intriguing in each one. I think my preferences are the dark, dramatic rooms. Now that’s hot.

From big city rooftop gardens to high end homes, from boho and quirky collections to midcentury modern and ending up with the only faux fur clad rooms you’ll ever see on DTI. Welcome to the portfolio of photographer Bob O’Connor. Great shots that capture the character, the whimsy and the downright kitsch. The man not only has a great eye but a sense of humour.






And wait for it…. drum roll please…. faux fur and fabulous!…. OK maybe not fabulous 🙂 Thank you Bob for capturing these.


I want this loft!

Posted on Tue, 15 Jun 2010 by KiM

A big thanks to Sonia who left us some links to Spanish shelter magazines – because I came across an incredible loft from www.micasarevista.com that I immediately fell in love with. OMG – it’s got everything. First, it’s a loft. You can’t go wrong with that. Then there’s white walls (my new favourite wall colour), a mix of modern and retro vintage furnishings, Tolix dining chairs, harvest dining table, metro shelving, cowhide rugs, funky artwork, Anglepoise lamp….when can I move in?!?!

La petite Bastide

Posted on Tue, 15 Jun 2010 by midcenturyjo

My head is racing with too many things. Work, the blog, home (maybe even a new house… there you go I’ve jinxed it… need to touch wood). Holidays in far off places with sunny climes and pure peace and simplicity keep popping into my mind. If only. La petite Bastide near the the village of Lourmarin in Provence. My sigh is almost as strong as the mistral.
