Oak Tree House

Posted on Tue, 29 Oct 2019 by midcenturyjo

This modern extension to an Edwardian era house has resulted in something very special. Think contemporary sculpture meets colour blocking, new connections between inside and out and restraint versus drama. The Oak House (named for the mature oak that dominates the site) by Melbourne based Kennedy Nolan.

Mixing it up in a Tudor home

Posted on Mon, 28 Oct 2019 by KiM

Seattle interior designer Heidi Caillier can do no wrong. I fall in love with every project she completes. This Tudor home is no exception. At first glance the design appears fairly traditional but it does not take long to notice the touches of mid-century and the fun prints and colours used throughout that keep it fresh and youthful.

My bedroom no longer looks like this. For a start it only has a bed in it. I also painted it yesterday, a lovely grey with purple undertones. I’m currently sitting in said bed drinking a cup of tea for the last time and feeling a bit weird about it. I’ve loved this little flat. I’m quite sad to be leaving it. Even more so since we’ve spent all week painting it and making it look even nicer! I hope the couple moving in tomorrow enjoy living here too… . . . #bedroominspo #bedroomdecor #bedroomgoals #prettybedroom #gallerywalldecor #gallerywallhashtag #gallerywall #victorianhome #victorianfireplace #greyinterior #greyhome #styledupinterior #styleathome #styleithappy #sahstylists #apartmenttherapy #apartmentgoals #rockmystylishhome #rockininteriors #interiorboom #interiorismo #interiordesignuk #interiordetails #colourmyhome #colourfulhome #brightboldhome #crashbangcolour #maximalistdecor #maximalistinteriors #dtipetsonfurniture

Welp, it’s here. . Labor Day weekend. . All the teachers and kids in NJ are having their last hurrah because school starts this coming week.😫 . We are celebrating today by leaving the beach area and going to a Yankee game. It’s the kiddos first time to Yankee Stadium and kind of a BFD for our baseball obsessed son.⚾️ . All that to say that Georgia is left on her own for the day. We always feel badly leaving her when we go out for a long day and so when @chewy reached out to me to send something special for our favorite pup, I jumped at the PetCube. It’s is an ingenious system that allows you to video and talk to your pet while you are away from home. It even lets you dispense treats! Swipe to see a closeup—we chose the rose gold and it’s perfect for our home. #ad #sponsored #chewypartner #chewybeyondthebusy. . Also—I didn’t edit out the cord because #reallife. Setup was so easy. We took it out of the box, plugged it in and paired it via the app and it was all set. . Thanks @chewy for making it easier to leave our girl during these busy last days of summer.💗🐶 . . . . . . . . . . . #dogsofinstagram #dogstagram #dogs_of_instagram #dogsbeingdogs #dogoftheday #dogsofinstaworld #huskyminpinmix #dtipetsonfurniture #thatsdarling #darlingweekend

The old English Pointer doing the topsy-turvy on any piece of furniture she can find. This is our 6 year old rescue dog, Tully, feeling very relaxed with her legs up in the air!

And one from me. Apparently I have been too busy at work or doing landscaping projects to pay much attention to the herd 🙁 This is Lucky passed out on the living room sofa.

Vintage charm in a 1930’s home in London

Posted on Sun, 27 Oct 2019 by KiM

This 1930’s semi-detached, 6 bedroom home in London is something I can definitively get behind as it is filled with some of my favourite things. Mid-century vintage furnishings, an epic plant wall, crittall windows, ballsy floral stair carpet and dreamy tile bathrooms. Available as a location home via Shoot Factory.

Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 26 Oct 2019 by midcenturyjo

It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a Saturday it helps if it’s somewhere stylish like the studio workspace of Webster Architecture & Interiors.
