Black and white in the city

Posted on Mon, 7 Aug 2017 by midcenturyjo

This 2 bedroom Park Slope apartment by BHDM design with its high contrast black and white colour palette, rich tobacco brown leather and brass highlights is a stylish example of cosmopolitan cool. Edgy and urbane, sophisticated and oh so smooth.

Shopping on a Sunday

Posted on Sun, 6 Aug 2017 by midcenturyjo

What a fun shop this is!!! Beehive is a clothing store with a few locations, including this one in Fort Worth, Texas designed by Duffy Stone. I really dig the Miami/80’s pastels/tropical vibe going on here. But the best part has to be that Wild Thing wallpaper by Flavor Paper, designed by Ghislaine Viñas. It is made from actual photographs of plants taken by her husband. The perfect wallpaper for those who are plant-obsessed. Gorgeous!!!

Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 5 Aug 2017 by midcenturyjo

Many years ago I worked weekends in an art gallery to help put myself through university. No one had to drag me kicking and screaming to work. I loved it. So I guess featuring this gallery design by lsl architects doesn’t really fit my usual mantra for working on a Saturday but what the heck I love the black and white contrast and the strict aesthetic of the space.

An elegant sitting room

Oh, how I wish I could take this sitting room and plop it into my house exactly as it is. Elegant, sophisticated with an unexpected edginess that I adore. By Peace Design

A bright mid-century home

Posted on Fri, 4 Aug 2017 by KiM

Bright and mid-century – a winning combination! Brio Interior Design transformed this young globe trotting couple’s first house together from a dated fixer-upper to a bright, open and modern mid-century home. Located in Bellevue, WA, the 1960’s house came with drab finishes and an awkward kitchen layout with two flanking dining rooms. Brio reworked the floor plan eliminating walls and extending the kitchen into one of the dining spaces. The result is an airy, expansive layout that seamlessly connects the living room, kitchen, and dining room. All new finishes were selected and combined with family heirloom pieces such as the freshly re-upholstered mid-century dining set and grandma’s stunning onyx cocktail table. Paired with art and textiles from travels abroad and the husband’s time in the Peace Corps, the living space feels collected yet paired down, leaving room for the couple to further leave their imprint on the home in the years to come. The neutral palette combined with warm accents like brass, wood and global textiles results in a fresh, inviting, well traveled space. Photos: Haris Kenjar
