Timeless lived-in interiors

Posted on Mon, 14 Jan 2019 by midcenturyjo

Connecticut and NYC based interior designer Alison Kist believes that people don’t just live in their home, they form a relationship with it. Her style is eclectic, a casually elegant mix of old and new along with the quirky, the whimsical and pieces that tell a story. What she creates is a home that tells the owner’s story, the best sort of home.

Curatorial House

Posted on Mon, 14 Jan 2019 by midcenturyjo

A classic P&O style house has been carefully reconfigured and restored by Sydney-based interior designers Arent & Pyke, returning its Art Deco chic and providing a considered style to a house owned by a curator. Designer as curator, owner as curator? There could be a clash of temperaments but instead the house is a stylish homage to a glamorous era.

An Edwardian villa in Johannesburg

Posted on Sun, 13 Jan 2019 by KiM

My sister sent me a link to a sköna hem feature of this absolutely breathtaking Edwardian villa in Johannesburg and I immediately knew I had to share. This has got to be one of the most beautiful homes I have ever seen. Those with a penchant for modern architecture, come hither and let me convert thee!!! This is country living at its finest.

It’s like I always say. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend then it better be somewhere stylish! Axiom SF by BHDM.

Kitchen Love

Posted on Fri, 11 Jan 2019 by midcenturyjo

My name is Jo and I have a serious kitchen addiction. You would think that being part way through my own kitchen renovation (think country colonial meets industrial) I would not have a wandering eye but I see a good looking rack of cupboards and I’m planning a little cheating on the side. My latest crush? This wooden kitchen by Swedish bespoke kitchen firm Nordiska Kök. Dark oak, terrazzo worktop, clean lined, Scandi chic. Swoon.
