Estudio María Santos

Posted on Mon, 5 Feb 2018 by midcenturyjo

Clean lined, simple architecture with emphasis on natural materials such as wood, stone, metal, linen and cotton. The pursuit of timeless, beautiful spaces without losing functionality. That’s the manifesto of Madrid-based Estudio María Santos and this light and bright, modern apartment in the Ventas area is a perfect example.

Last week I shared the work of San Francisco based interior designer Jeff Schlarb. You didn’t I was going to stop with just one house? Of course not. He calls it Rad Elegance. I call it mid century modern meets restrained glam. Fabulous!

A cozy and colourful Victorian home in London

I love the eclectic and cozy vibe of this Victorian terraced home in London with its random mix of decidedly vintage furnishings, pink/peach walls and fun wallpaper. Fun, functional and family-friendly. Available as a location home through Shoot Factory.

Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 3 Feb 2018 by midcenturyjo

You know what I say week after week. If you have to drag yourself into work on the weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Hey I could equally have called this post “Pampering yourself on a Saturday” because this is one commercial space that staff and customers will equally enjoy. Mani? Pedi? Or both? L’ecologique Nail Bar by Spanish interior design firm Quintana Partners.

Making a statement with your walls

Posted on Fri, 2 Feb 2018 by KiM


I love a good statement wall. I also love bold art. So why not take a favourite photograph and have it blown up mural size? I am completely smitten with this idea as seen above. I showed my husband this photo a couple of weeks ago and he seemed convince we needed to do this with a photo of Sayulita, Mexico, since we both became obsessed with this magical town and want nothing more than to move there. I burst his bubble by explaining we have no wall at the moment that would work but I am determined to do this one day. Via sköna hem.
