Arthur Casas

Posted on Wed, 29 May 2013 by midcenturyjo

An overdose of exceptional architecture with today’s firm. São Paulo and New York based Studio Arthur Casas draws inspiration from Brazil’s history of modernist design, takes a considered approach to the environment and a holistic approach to the many layers of their designs from furniture to urban planning. It’s cosmopolitan, contemporary and just a little sexy. It was hard to narrow down which of the projects to feature. Finally I chose the Qunita Da Baroness house in São Paulo. I think you will understand why.

Not your ordinary bathroom

Posted on Tue, 28 May 2013 by KiM

I have another luxurious, statement bathroom for you with a serious WOW factor by Royston Wilson Design & Minosa Design. This one is pretty bold, with a larger than life Mr. Bonaparte checking you out while you bathe. Black colour scheme, LED lighting that changes colour, and a disco ball over the tub, this is definitively not a bathroom for the faint at heart. Did I mention WOW? (Read more about it here)

Mark D. Sikes

Mark D. Sikes is an interior designer from West Hollywood, California and these photos are of his spectacular home in the Hollywood Hills. The cream and black colour scheme is dramatic and classy (my favourite combo) and his backyard is so dreamy that I had to feature it first.

Stalking behind industrial walls

Posted on Tue, 28 May 2013 by midcenturyjo

What lies behind this brick wall? A workshop? A warehouse? A fallen in roof and a pile of pigeon poop? How about a serene oasis of painted brick walls, wooden beams, soaring ceilings and a restrained neutral palette. Simply stylish. Simply cool. A perfect base for inner city living. An escape from the hurly burly. A lovely conversion of an old embroidery factory. Unfortunately (for me) now sold.  Link here.

Quirky British

Posted on Tue, 28 May 2013 by midcenturyjo

It may have plain white walls and simple dark floors but that is all that is plain and simple about this London home. When Brits do quirky then it is all personality plus. Not sure if I could live here but I’d be always popping round for a visit. Fine pieces and found pieces and swathes and swatches. Fab house via fab locations site Shootfactory.
