Casa en el sur

Today’s daydream involves a cool drink by the pool then a saunter through the stylish rooms of this house in the south by Madrid-based design firm Melián Randolph. Mediterranean chic.

A colourful home

Posted on Thu, 23 Feb 2017 by midcenturyjo

Talk about making a statement from the outside in! This home designed by architect Peter Pennoyer is a stately gem with a bit of an unexpected choice of red for trim colour…but then when you walk inside it all makes complete sense. The homeowners appear to have no fear of colour so I would expect an designer such as Katie Ridder to make the interior a random assortment of some very bold colour choices. And it starts the second you walk in the front door! Not sure how I would feel living with these colours but the architecture of the home is really spectacular.

I want

Posted on Thu, 23 Feb 2017 by midcenturyjo

I’m like a spoilt child. If I see something I like then I want what I see. Please mummy can I have a beach hut right on the beach? Just meters from the water? Pleeeeeeaaaase. Except I’d want sand not shingle but you can’t have it all. Beach House by Studiomama.

A casual glam

Posted on Thu, 23 Feb 2017 by midcenturyjo

What do you get when you mix industrial with bling, Palm Springs with plantation style, all with a South African influence? A house brimming with the owner’s personality by Durban-based Douglas and Douglas. Definitely glam but a casual almost effortless glam. We know better 😉

A white beach house

Posted on Wed, 22 Feb 2017 by midcenturyjo

We have featured many beach houses here on the blog over the years, and many of them take the nautical theme a tad too far. But not this one! I absolutely adore this Florida home. With different shades of white/off-white and not a speck of blue in sight, this is elegant yet earthy and minimalist. No fuss decor with lots of natural fabrics make this so effortless and soothing. I love that aside from a couple of throw blankets there are no patterns, making this so easy on the eye. By Tennessee-based interior designer Rozanne Jackson.
