Stalking straight lines and curves

Posted on Thu, 24 Aug 2017 by midcenturyjo

I’m stalking curved concrete and cedar panelling in the Sydney suburb of Rozelle. A strikingly modern home with seamless flow from inside to out through opening walls of glass. Cool minimalist nestled in suburban greenery. Link here while it lasts.

Sullivan Island beach house

Posted on Thu, 24 Aug 2017 by midcenturyjo

Not so much a beach shack, more a beach complex this Sullivan Island, South Carolina house by Heather A Wilson Architect excels as outdoor spaces. From screened verandahs to fireplaces to poolside lounging it has everything for large family gatherings by the sea. Bunks and slip-covered furniture, shingles and white washed timbers. It’s a picture postcard American coastal getaway.

Pretty pastels in a home in Paris

Posted on Wed, 23 Aug 2017 by midcenturyjo

Jo has featured the work of Paris design firm GCG Architectes a few times here on the blog (like here, here and here) and I am totally smitten with this talented crew. Style out the wazoo, an unwavering need to add random colours, patterns and architectural details throughout their projects…their unique approach is unlike anything I have ever seen. Yep, safe to say I am their biggest fan. And this home in the Boulogne Billancourt suburb of Paris decked out in mostly pastels is fabulously random, as I would expect from GCG. Photos: Robin Petillault

Stealth House

Posted on Wed, 23 Aug 2017 by midcenturyjo

“A heritage listed grand terrace-house is re-configured in the form of a three-storey home to create a sense of place for a young growing family. In a dense urban setting where heritage takes respectful precedence, natural light, privacy and accommodation form the battlefront and are achieved in large by stealth.”

Simplicity, beautiful, almost quiet simplicity. No ostentation, no look at me, look at me loudness. Just a stylish sense of what is needed for living well… and simply. Lakeville by Grey Dove Design
