Kitchens and more

Posted on Thu, 12 Apr 2018 by midcenturyjo

Why can’t I have this kitchen by Copenhagen-based KBH Københavns Møbelsnedkeri? (You may remember my previous post on them here.) Fabulous bespoke cabinets not to mention those black steel windows and wide plank oak floor. Love. Love. Love. While I’m at it I’ll take the office and that wine fridge under the stairs as well. There’s something so sexy about handcrafted and custom.

Part 2 of This Old Hudson

Here is a peek at This Old Hudson’s new second unit, part of the same property as the first unit featured in my earlier post. Zio & Sons did a fabulous job on this space as well. The same sort of rustic vibe with an equally gorgeous kitchen and an amazing 10 ft long farm-style dining table. And that bathroom!!

This Old Hudson – a creative studio

Posted on Wed, 11 Apr 2018 by KiM

This Old Hudson is a creative studio available for rent in Hudson, New York. Over 100 years old, this picturesque space by Zio & Sons is perfect for photography projects, a relaxing weekend away from the city, or gatherings of creative minds. This is Unit 1 (Unit 2 will be featured later today): A color palette with the perfect balance of whites, greys, and weathered-wood tones is incorporated throughout the studio, embracing a blend of old and new. The result is an inventive and charming space, thoughtfully curated to evoke a feeling of casual luxury. Find it on Airbnb.

Downtown Abbey

Posted on Tue, 10 Apr 2018 by midcenturyjo

No not Downton Abbey, Downtown Abbey. Tucked up under the eaves of a former church parish house in the Stuyvesant Square neighborhood of New York City, this penthouse duplex apartment with its exposed steel work and the light flooding in from windows in the steep sloping ceilings is bright, stylish and full of fun. Design is by AM/MOR Architecture.

More from Betsy Burnham

Posted on Tue, 10 Apr 2018 by midcenturyjo

The exterior gives you just a hint at what treasures the interior holds. The white walls and black arched windows suggest a restrained elegance, a sophistication but the myriad of topiary balls cascading on the front garden suggests a sense of humour. Through the front door is a home full of personality and pizzazz but what else would you expect from Betsy Burnham of Los Angeles based  Burnham Design? One of my favourite designers has done it again!
