The bold Miami home of an art collector

Posted on Tue, 28 Mar 2017 by KiM

What can I say about this Miami house other than OMG this is NUTS and the homeowner’s love of art is quite…unusual. This is about as colourful and wacky as it gets. Designed by Frank de Biasi

The beautiful white box

Posted on Tue, 28 Mar 2017 by KiM

I love a door, don’t you? It swings, it folds, it slides, it hides. The joy, the serenity of closing off the cluttered, the dirty, the ugly with a well designed door. Not that there is anything but a calm, almost zen-like quality to this contemporary mansion flat by London-based extrArchitecture. It’s like a beautifully crafted puzzle box.

Blues and greys in a California home

Posted on Mon, 27 Mar 2017 by midcenturyjo

Neutral tones with accents of blue and grey and weathered wood give this Corona del Mar, California home a beachy vibe. Such a soothing atmosphere, complete with cozy furnishings and lots of patterns for visual interest. I especially love the fabric on the dining chairs…and that beaded chandelier in the dining space.

Please find enclosed two photos of my Siamese cat, named Lotus. She is sixteen years old and we live in a small village in Israel near Caesarea.

Dasher from Hartford Wis. on his West Elm sofa. 
– April

It seems I didn’t take many photos this week of cats – I blame it on my hectic schedule. I did manage to capture this yesterday morning while I was lying in bed surrounded by cats. Former feral Frankie is such a big baby when he’s sleepy in bed with us. It’s the only time he’ll basically go near us. He’s an odd character. 

Also, not pets on furniture but I had to share some of my favourite photos from our visit last weekend to the Country Cat Sanctuary

And thanks to Korin for the reminder about this oldie but goodie.

Slot House

Posted on Mon, 27 Mar 2017 by midcenturyjo

I love the verticality of this modern extension to a Georgian terrace house. Renovations in the 1980s had left the floorplan confused and ceilings lowered. By inserting a glass infill between the narrow back wing of the house and the neighbour’s wall the ground floor now has a soaring double height ceiling while a master suite is reached by an open tread staircase. Slot house by London-based architectural firm Studio Octopi.
