A Brooklyn Brownstone done right, IMHO. This home had lost much of it’s original detail during a previous owner’s renovation and with traditional interior design details and custom millwork, we were able to transform this home back to its traditional splendour. Some of the highlights include a custom master closet and built in banquette in the kitchen. By New York-based interior design firm Marks & Frantz.

A colourful tropical getaway

Posted on Mon, 28 Aug 2017 by midcenturyjo

It really isn’t Monday. It really isn’t the start of another working week. It isn’t if you come along with me to the French Caribbean island of Saint Barthélemy, Saint Barts to you and me. The Hotel Villa Marie is a luxury getaway, chic, fabulous and lush. Part Colonial plantation, part French flair with lashings of Caribbean colour. I’ll meet you by the pool.

Since I will be in the air on the way to Germany when this post publishes I wanted to feature a home from this gorgeous country. This 290  maisonette in Stuttgart is that of architect Peter Ippolito of Ippolito Fleitz Group and textile designer Stefan Gabel of Zimmer + Rohde. This space could really not be more unique – with fun pieces of art throughout. Such incredible creativity and thought went into the design. I adore this.

Working on a Saturday

It’s like I say every week. If you have to drag yourself into work on a Saturday it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. I know you liked Phase 1 when I featured it a couple of years back so it’s a no brainer that you’re going to love Phase 2 of this Game Design Studio by New York-based Sheep + Stone.
