Personal space

Posted on Wed, 19 Apr 2017 by midcenturyjo

What does your personal space say about you? Are your surrounds like a window on your soul? If I looked at pictures of your home could I weave a story about who you are, your loves, your hopes, your life? Just these few images of South African designer David Strauss‘ home tells me so much yet leaves enough for me to want to know more. Mysterious, moody, artistic, lover of simple luxuries.

With over 100 categories the A’ Design Award and Competition is the worlds’ largest design competition. But it is not just an award. It is an indicator of quality and perfection in design, recognized worldwide, bringing your design front and centre before design companies and professionals. From Interior Space and Exhibition Design Award to Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design Award. Architecture, Building and Structure Design Award to Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design Award. Home Appliances Design Award to Bakeware, Tableware, Drinkware and Cookware Design Award and so many more. (You can find all the design categories here.) 

The A’ Design Award & Competition has ended for another year and the winners have been announced. Here are some of my favourite interior design related winners for 2017.

A’ Design Award and Competitions are organized and awarded annually and internationally in a wide range of categories. Every year, projects that focus on innovation, technology, design and creativity are awarded with the A’ Award. While realized projects find opportunities to get published, reach new markets and meet a wide range of buyers for their existing products, the organization also helps the creative minds and startups to meet with the business people to realize their product ideas.

Au natural

Posted on Wed, 19 Apr 2017 by midcenturyjo

A classic palette of creams and whites, neutrals enriched with accents of black and brown. Refined boho meets modern scandi, layers of texture, nothing cookie cutter, carefully collected. The joy of living au natural. Interiors by Los Angeles based Hannah Polskin of House of Hannah.

Classic spaces by VSP Interiors
