That perfect place

Posted on Mon, 11 Jul 2016 by midcenturyjo

The perfect place. You know it. That house, that interior, the furniture you dream about and hope one day to own. The place that whispers to your soul. “Come find me.” Well I found mine in, of all places, Montauk, Long Island and it’s by Robert McKinley.

Interior designer Dirk Jan Kinet does not fill his spaces with Ikea, does not karate chop his pillows, does not douse everything in white nor does he place a fiddle leaf fig in every bright corner. What he does do is the unexpected. In every corner. Literally – check out the dining room photo. This Madrid home is trend-less and I love it for its randomness. Via Nuevo Estilo

Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 9 Jul 2016 by midcenturyjo

It’s like I say time and again. If you have to drag your sorry self into work on a Saturday then it certainly helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Like this wonderful space by Elizabeth Roberts Architecture & Design.

“The Journee/COLAB space is located in a typical lower Manhattan office building. The program for the space was unusual as the client created a new business model requiring offices, library, classroom, kitchen, casual meeting spaces and a conference room.”

Common Bond Design – Bridgehampton

Posted on Fri, 8 Jul 2016 by KiM

This Bridgehampton, NY farmhouse is the perfect summer getaway. Designed by Common Bond Design, you won’t find any karate chopped pillows here! It is a wonderfully eclectic mix of Scandinavian, nautical and classical styles. That dining room tho’ – the crystal chandelier/farmhouse table/gilded Louis XVI chair combo is something I have lusted over forever. 

Design Lab

Hello colour. Hello stripes. Hello vintage and hello new. San Francisco interior designer Alison Damonte calls it a “design lab” but she also calls it home. Design lab? No it’s design fab.
