Christian Maldonado

Posted on Mon, 10 Nov 2014 by KiM

Half the battle is getting the decor just right. The other half is taking that perfect photo to accurately capture the mood invoked by the designer. In these cases, Brazilian photographer Christian Maldonado got it just right. (And I am about to find just how difficult it is to photograph a dark room)

A certain something

Posted on Mon, 10 Nov 2014 by midcenturyjo

There is a certain something that defines a French room. An effortless style, a casual (but oh so carefully curated) elegance. It may look thrown together but it’s the height of fashion but without the fad. Appartement George Berger by Laurent Bourgois.

Random on a Sunday

Posted on Sun, 9 Nov 2014 by KiM

I have been scrambling to get my living room in somewhat decent shape for some photographs (I still have a couple of things I need to paint today – it never ends!!!). Hopefully I will have a post ready this week. I did a quick search looking for some fab homes to feature today and found two I really like. This first one is the Stockholm apartment of Evelina Kravaev-Söderberg, creative director of H&M Home. She has some amazing vintage and iconic mid-century pieces that I am gaga over – Fritz Hansen Swan and Grand Prix chairs, Eames coffee tables, Louis Poulsen lighting… (via Elle Decor España)

Here is another apartment in Stockholm, the home of a couple and their 3 children. With help from designers Benedikte Ugland and Katarina Grunströmer, some chalkboard paint and Deborah Bowness wallpaper, it has tons of personality and charm. Via kk living.

Stalking leftovers

Posted on Sat, 8 Nov 2014 by midcenturyjo

Saturday again and you know the story. I’ve spent my spare moments flitting from real estate listing to real estate listing during the week. I’m a stalker but I’m fussy. Not quite right, bad photos, I need more photos please, house is amazing furniture is deplorable or no furniture at all! Can’t quite put my finger on it listings with something that has me nodding “yes”. It’s a mixed bag this week.I’ve found an unrestored apartment with it’s own turret, one that needs a little judicious curating (that’s the polite way of saying there are too many “things”), a designer pad, an empty industrial dream, a revisit to a retro lovely (they painted the ceiling white!) and my usual assortment of inner city terraces.
