Stalking black and white

Posted on Wed, 25 Sep 2013 by midcenturyjo

A small terrace house in Paddington, Sydney provides plenty of inspiration for those who like their interiors black and white. Somehow they manage to squeeze 3 bedrooms (although they are not using them as such), 2 bathrooms and a flow through dining, kitchen, living space into this small inner city footprint. Tight yes but the simple colour palette, sleek surfaces and walls that open out to courtyards and the sky expand the sense of space. I must admit my favourite room is the bathroom. Graphic and chic. The atrium kitchen is clever too. Link here while it lasts.

Another project by Lucyna

Polish interior designer Lucyna Kołodziejska has been somewhat of a regular on DTI, sharing with us all kinds of fun, modern designs for mostly small apartments. This home isn’t so small but decorated in typical Lucyna fashion – funky lighting, bold colour palette, murals and graphic wallpapers. And it’s got a matching kitty. BONUS!

A colourful townhouse

Striking, bold, eye-catching and unique. I love this chic Boston townhouse renovated and decorated by New York based Kati Curtis Design. Not afraid of colour or pattern whatsoever! 😉

Dobrodošli u Prugu

Posted on Tue, 24 Sep 2013 by midcenturyjo

All the hard work is done. The doors are open. Guests are arriving. Welcome to Pruga, two acres of peace and quiet and bed and breakfast. After many years in the UK, Andrijana and Vanja returned to Croatia, to the idyllic countryside of Istria, to just outside the tiny village of Lovrinići. Blood, sweat and tears and finally they created a beautiful stone building containing two apartments for guests, a lovely pool for hot summer days and all the tranquility one could want. Oh and the bars and restaurants that abound in this part of Croatia. More on their website and you can follow their progress on their blog.
