A modern farmhouse by Blackband Design

Posted on Tue, 6 Oct 2015 by KiM

This modern farmhouse in Newport Heights, California has me craving beaches, sun and t-shirt weather. Designed by Greg and Wendy Blackband of Blackband Design, it has a definite beachy colour theme going and looks utterly comfy, casual and unpretentious. Black accents pop against white, greenery adds some nature inside and textures and patterns keeps things eclectic and creates some visual drama. The perfect getaway for entertaining and relaxing.

Tickled pink

Pink, a difficult colour to pull off. Barbie Dream House nightmares come to mind. Not with this sophisticated pink and peach palette created by Brett Mickan Interior Design for this suburban Sydney loft. Definitely more moody and modern than saccharine sweet. Love it.

Still stalking

Posted on Tue, 6 Oct 2015 by midcenturyjo

I’m arranging an inspection. Who wants to come? We can open the wardrobes, rifle through the drawers when the agent isn’t looking, find out who lives here. Then we can assume their lives and their house. That’s what stalkers do don’t they? No no no. Just kidding. That’s creepy. I would love to meet whoever owns this lovely home though. Great taste. Link here while it lasts.

I cannot wait until I have my third floor library set up instead of having book piles all over the floor. This library corner is giving me heart palpitations. What a gem!!! Via Peti Lau.

NYC based interior designer Peti Lau has coined her style AristoFreak™ The process starts with four words: worldly, drama, romance, and luxe. From there, I use the spaces that I have to work with, combined with the personalities of my clients with design elements by using color, light, patterns and textures to tell their story. With an eclectic flair her spaces have bits of mid-century, Hollywood regency and ethnic flavours. And she can work with even the smallest of rooms and make them cozy and cool.
