Cassandra Ellis

Posted on Fri, 22 Jul 2016 by midcenturyjo

With a personal aesthetic of simplicity, warmth and beauty, New Zealand-born, London-based furniture and homewares designer Cassandra Ellis has created a home that mirrors her belief in quiet, unforced, graceful spaces. Her style and philosophy, the idea of home as a meditation on living, resonate so strongly with me.

Kitchen envy

Because sometimes white subway tiles, thin marble countertops, gilded mirrors and a vintage crystal chandelier is all you need. Via JG Interiors

In May of 2012 I featured the Tel Aviv apartment of Scott of Talmon Design. He recently got in touch with us and shared some photos of his new apartment. With a bit of a different vibe and colour palette this time around, it is a cool mix of modern and vintage and some pieces that have since been reupholstered. Thanks for sharing Scott!

Chelsea Hing encore

Posted on Thu, 21 Jul 2016 by midcenturyjo

Oh the beautiful interiors that Melbourne interior designer Chelsea Hing creates. If this is what she comes up with in real life can you imagine what loveliness is spinning around in her mind? Colour and texture and pattern all stylishly combined to make sure that, if this was your home, you’d break into a wide smile every time you walked through the door.

Take me away to the south of France. I’ve had enough of this week and it’s only Thursday! I want to run away to a place in the sun, with beautiful old rooms filled with stylish bits and bobs found at the brocantes. I want to be welcomed by hosts who know and love the area so well but who have themselves escaped the hustle and bustle to their own little piece of paradise. Take me away to somewhere like Camellas-Lloret, a charming B&B in the village of Montreal. Whether in one of the charming rooms in the main house or the garden apartment I know I would be blissfully happy.
