Anne Hepfer

Posted on Wed, 20 Feb 2013 by midcenturyjo

Time for colour. Time for detail. Time for luxury finishes, for high-end projects. Time for sophistication. After so much of the scandi boho casual trend it is time for a cosmopolitan, urban elegance. Toronto based interior designer Anne Hepfer creates lush, rich rooms transcending eras and trends but still fresh and inspiring. Enjoy!

ade architecture

LOVE this renovated home in London designed by ade architecture. Classic from the front with a modern surprise at the back. It’s bright, and appears very spacious, with the help of 6 metre high sliding glass panels. SWEET!!

An office space goes Brit

Posted on Tue, 19 Feb 2013 by KiM

Loving this office of San Diego innovation and design consultancy firm Bulldog Drummond. Their Victorian house-turned-office space they have effectively titled ‘The Manor’ features a mix of traditional British design with a modern California twist. I love Brit-inspired design… the ubiquitous brown leather chesterfield and union jack pattern. Very cool yet still looks professional.

The quintessential Magazine

Posted on Tue, 19 Feb 2013 by midcenturyjo

One of my favourite vintage shops in Sydney, quintessential duckeggBLUE has a new (two issues so far) online magazine, The quintessential Magazine. If you love all things found, industrial and antique then you are going to love this small but beautifully curated and interactive online offering. Shop owner Leanne Carter-Taylor and ex creative director of Inside Out magazine Tracy Lines are the creative force behind The quintessential Magazine. A perfect partnership producing an evocative collection of inspiring people and pieces.

The pallet apartment

Posted on Tue, 19 Feb 2013 by midcenturyjo

A tiny two storey apartment by Prague architects SMLXL Studio makes clever use of a difficult layout (three chimney breast pierce the space). White painted brick, open plan living, pallets as furniture and a definite industrial vibe all add up to a stylish home for its young owner. The original story is from Czech magazine Bydleni iDNES with thanks to reader Bara for the link and translation!
