A colourful home in Corsica

Posted on Mon, 30 Oct 2017 by midcenturyjo

When you can almost reach out and touch the blue Mediterranean Sea from your terrace, when the sun baths your holiday house in golden light and when the views are of the green forested headlands then choosing a colour palette is easy. As to the style why it’s relaxed luxury, simple yet chic. A colourful home in Corsica by double g.

Beautiful details in an apartment in Stockholm

Posted on Sun, 29 Oct 2017 by KiM

This apartment in Stockholm is a total dream. Spacious (especially the master bathroom!), to-die-for moldings, massive baseboards, tall windows, a sleek modern kitchen (love the mirrored hood fan!), black painted hardwood floors, an incredible art collection….and no longer for sale. Whoever scooped this up is a lucky sonofab*tch! Via Lagerlings.

Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 28 Oct 2017 by midcenturyjo

If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Can I get an amen? This week we are wishing we worked in headquarters for an apparel manufacturer Trackmaster by Amber Road.

I’ll take a window seat

Posted on Fri, 27 Oct 2017 by KiM

I have always had a thing for cozy seating areas like banquettes and window seats. It seems Julie Goldman of J.Latter Design and the owners of this home in New Orleans share this obsession. Happy weekend!

Transformation of a dated bi-level in Indiana

Posted on Fri, 27 Oct 2017 by KiM

It has been a little while since we featured a project by Indiana’s Susan Yeley Interiors but they reached out recently about a new project they have completed and I had to share this one too because I love a good before/after renovation. The owners of this dated bi-level home in Bloomington, Indiana weren’t sure if they should renovate or sell. After a year of deliberating they decided to work on the main living space consisting of the living room, dining room and kitchen. Opening up the space had monumental impact and the result is amazing!

Walls and ceilings came down; clerestory windows went in. A stunning 4-panel sliding door-cum-window wall replaced two separate doors in two separate rooms, and the sun streaming in now gives this house in Indiana a California-like access to the outdoors. The central custom screen does triple duty: displaying the client’s objets d’art, hiding an HVAC chase, and holding up the ceiling. The gas fireplace is completely new, with custom shelving on either side. Of course, in 2017, the kitchen anchors everything. Family Central, it features custom cabinetry, honed quartz, a new window wall, and a huge island. Materials are earthy and natural, lending a warm modern effect to the space. The medium stain of the wood and overall horizontality of the design are a nod to the home’s era (1967), while white cabinetry and charcoal tile provide a neutral but crisp backdrop for the family’s stunning and colorful art collection.
