A converted carriage house

Posted on Tue, 27 Oct 2015 by midcenturyjo

It’s not often that I start a house tour from the back door and move my way to the front but I am totally smitten by the sun room at the rear of this converted carriage house in Boston by interior designer Melissa Miranda. Oh my! Oh my! Not that the rest of the house isn’t wonderful. White and bright with a mix of mid century, scandi, boho and modern it is fun and fresh and stylish.

A small kitchen

Posted on Mon, 26 Oct 2015 by KiM

It can be difficult to make a small kitchen fabulous, and this one by Ensemble Architecture (Elizabeth Roberts) may have a small footprint but it is high on style. I am not usually a fan of coloured marble but here it adds so much visual interest to an otherwise simple kitchen. Gorg!!

Prospect Park West townhouse

Posted on Mon, 26 Oct 2015 by KiM

We have featured quite a few projects by Elizabeth Roberts Design (and Ensemble Architecture) on the blog and this one may be my all-time favourite. This 5 story 5200 sq ft residence had been owned by the same family for a century! This is one home where I can say without any doubt whatsoever that NO ONE SHOULD EVER PAINT OUT THE WOODWORK. EVER. (Renovations by MADE Architecture, finishes and furnishings by Elizabeth Roberts Design)

I am dying over this bathroom.

Suzy Hoodless encore

New work from one of my all time favourite designers, Suzy Hoodless. Working in collaboration with architects Hackett Holland, this 5 storey townhouse in Notting Hill is simply sublime. Graphic, playful yet sophisticated, stylish.

The cure for Mondayitis

Posted on Mon, 26 Oct 2015 by midcenturyjo

Have you heard? Monday has been cancelled. No need for the weekend to end. No need to get the kids off to school or head in to work. Instead we can all spend the day by the water at this Palm Beach Pool House north of Sydney. Well maybe not all of us. It’s the perfect get away for two. Where else would I find such a gem? At Contemporary Hotels of course.
