Kristofer Johnsson

Posted on Mon, 4 Mar 2013 by KiM

I am inspired by the delightful portfolio of super-talented Swedish photographer Kristofer Johnsson. Love the artwork in the photo below, and I would loooove to get my hands on one of those long articulated wall mount light fixtures like in photo #4 (except not for my existing extremely narrow house LOL).  

Storm Cottage

Posted on Mon, 4 Mar 2013 by midcenturyjo

I love the New Zealand bach. The beach side cottage, the seaside shack, often painted black, pared back, perhaps even a little rough. Somewhere to escape, to interact with nature, to relax, to retreat. The Storm Cottage by architectural firm Fearon Hay with interiors by Penny Hay displays a robust exterior to the world but once inside it is warm, cocooning with a simple luxury. A stylish shelter in the wilds.

The Assembly Hall

Posted on Mon, 4 Mar 2013 by midcenturyjo

A kaleidoscope of colour and a lick of texture brushed across a white canvas. A riot of vintage and artisan, modern and found. Nothing is too precious but everywhere little treasures. The perfect spaces for family and friends and everyday life. Inspiration and creativity and a sense of joy from The Assembly Hall.













Julie Nabucet

Julie Nabucet is a Parisian architect whose portfolio has completely won me over. The apartment in the first group of photos before the jump is 150 m² and located right by the Eiffel Tower. DREAMY! Especially the rustic kitchen.

Stalking on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 2 Mar 2013 by midcenturyjo

It’s raining here. Raining, raining, raining. In biblical quantities. What better time to plonk myself in front of the computer and real estate stalk? I’m in Bondi, Sydney. A contemporary home by architect Uri Turgeman and interior designer Shellee Gordoun. A series of rooms in open plan stretching either side of a cental garden atrium and leading out to the garden. Casual elegance with interest brought in through finishes and texture. Light, bright, white and… blue. My imagination is running riot. How would this space look with red or green or black or yellow? A good example of how a neutral base lends itself to painterly strokes of colour to change things up. Link here while it lasts.
