A Parisian flat in Pacific Heights

Posted on Thu, 26 Sep 2013 by midcenturyjo

Sutro Architects call it a Parisian Modern Flat… except it’s in the Pacific Heights area of San Francisco. A chic Euro vibe with sun shining in through large windows onto white walls and herringbone floors. Good architectural bones and great new architectural design. I really don’t care where the flat is. I’m moving in. J’adore.

Take a 1973 Eichler house in Palo Alto. A little tired but very proud. Introduce it to a young family who fell in love with it and wanted to breath new life into it in that minimal sort of way you should when confronted with a faded mid century gem. Enter San Francisco architectural firm yamamar  and the magic happens. Finally add interiors by Alison Garvey. It’s a happily ever after ending.

Talk about bringing the outside in! Architecture firm Miller Hull, based in Seattle and San Diego, have created homes that are a dream. Floor to cieling windows, a view over a stove, beautiful & slick modern kitchens, industrial flavoured bathroom, mix of rustic wood & concrete & exposed brick…and a bulldog on a couch….

Sit and Read

Posted on Wed, 25 Sep 2013 by midcenturyjo

I’d love to take the time to sit in the sunshine in this Williamsburg studio. Perhaps read. Or drink coffee and flick through records with a couple of friends. Chat and relax and bounce plans for the day’s activities back and forward. I think this would be my very cool friend’s home and I would spend way too much time there. The sit and read reference is apt in this case. The studio was designed by Brooklyn based creative agency Sit and Read.  Photography by Brian W. Ferry and no not that Brian Ferry.
