Seamless beauty

Posted on Fri, 19 Aug 2016 by midcenturyjo

“An elegant background for everyday living.” That’s what Brooklyn-based architectural firm Bangia Agostinho strive to create and I can’t get enough. This extensive renovation in Carroll Gardens takes the building back to its beautiful, simple bones and seamlessly inserts the perfect living space for a modern family so that traditional and contemporary complement and enhance.

Fusion of art deco and modern

Posted on Wed, 17 Aug 2016 by KiM

Ninou Etienne of Fusion D is all about the fusion of drop dead gorgeous original architecture in dwellings around Bordeaux, France and the modernist sensibilities of her clients.

Onetangi Beach House

Posted on Wed, 17 Aug 2016 by midcenturyjo

There’s something subliminal going on with my posts so far this week. Beach houses and holiday rental accommodation, accommodation and houses by the sea. Perhaps I need some time off? A holiday in a beach house? Or perhaps it’s just where the interwebs have taken me this week. Like this beautiful home at Onetangi Beach by New Zealand design firm Sumich Chaplin Architects. Open the doors and drink in that view.
