30 sqm in Milan

Posted on Thu, 17 Mar 2016 by midcenturyjo

I’m becoming more and more fascinated by small space living and this tiny Italian apartment has caught my eye. Exposed brick, concrete floor, stylish kitchen with ample storage and mezzanine sleeping above the bathroom and laundry. 30 fabulous square metres by Milan-based Cristina Meschi Architetto.

A church conversion in Sweden

Posted on Wed, 16 Mar 2016 by KiM

Thank you Thomas for sending us this link (via Fastighetsbryån) to this wonderful church conversion currently for sale in Sweden. On a frosty winter day it looks absolutely magical! Despite only having a couple of rooms, the ceiling height and lightness makes it appear so much larger. Yes, living in a converted church like this is still my dream. And this one may now have topped the list as my favourite.   

More lakeside living

Posted on Wed, 16 Mar 2016 by midcenturyjo

Simple yet stylish with a monochromatic palette warmed by the earthiness of wood and splashes of colour, this lakeside home, again by Andrew Brown, has a more relaxed, holiday home feel than the mid-century treehouse of my previous post. This is a waterside family home, beautiful yet practical, the perfect getaway from the clamour of city life.

A sophisticated treehouse by the lake

Posted on Wed, 16 Mar 2016 by midcenturyjo

Often the emphasis of a lake house is on the watery surrounds. Often but not always. Alabama interior designer Andrew Brown has taken his cue not only from the lake but from the leafy green woods surrounding this wonderful house. The interiors have a distinct mid-century vibe layered with natural finishes and an impressive natural photography collection. Peaceful, relaxed yet sophisticated, it’s like a well curated treehouse.

Studio DB – Oak Hill

Posted on Tue, 15 Mar 2016 by KiM

I was excited to spot a new project among the portfolio of one of my favourite architecture & design firms Studio DB. Turns out it is the 3,500 sq ft Amenia, NY weekend home of principals Damian and Britt Zunino. (Pretty sweet for a weekend home!) I adore everything about this house – the blue framed entryway, all of the light fixtures, the curve of the kitchen backsplash, the openness to the outdoors, the Ellie Cahsman floral wallpaper, the marble hex tiles inset around the bathtub…and on and on and on…(Photos: Preston Schlebusch)
