Colour blocking in a Moscow apartment

Posted on Wed, 13 Nov 2019 by KiM

For an architecture and design firm that typically only creates spaces in black, white and grey, this 80 sq m apartment in Moscow was quite a departure. A.T.Ø (Architecture Technology Objects) Studio went a little crazy with red, pink, green and blue in this project and I’m digging the outcome. It is as bold as they come, and alot of fun.

Modern living in a thatched cottage

Posted on Tue, 12 Nov 2019 by midcenturyjo

Such a well considered balance. All chocolate box thatched cottage on the outside. All modern living expectations on the inside. Icing on the cake? More than enough historical character internally preserved to keep you smiling sweetly. Gloucestershire Cottage by Sarah Delaney Design.

The conservatory

Posted on Tue, 12 Nov 2019 by midcenturyjo

Usually I would be waxing lyrical about the barn conversion. I mean come on, great rustic kitchen, soaring white ceilings but sorry I only have eyes for one thing. OMG that is the BEST conservatory. Full stop. No contest. By MAN architecten, a creative studio for sustainable architecture and interior architecture based in Sint-Niklaas, Belgium.

Colours and patterns, and more colours and patterns in this Tulsa, Oklahoma home designed by Mel Bean Interiors. This could not be more bold and unexpected in what appears to be a fairly traditional home. I applaud Mel for bringing on the sass and breaking all the rules with this project.

Hey Ted fans – he’s back and he’s absolutely fine! 🙌🏼💕🐶(If you missed it – he had to go into quarantine for 17 days as I failed to notice that his rabies jab had expired on his passport) 😱. I know that there are much worse things that can happen in life but MAN I missed him so much and have been so worried about him.😭🐶 This weekend is going to be all about dog walks, cuddles and treats to make it up to him – though to be fair he seems to be over it already 😂. Also, big up to @rob_campling who has: a) not said a single negative thing about my mega passport cock up, not even an eye roll (to my face, anyway!😂) b) put up with me moping around and pining for over 2 weeks c) drove the 7 hour round trip to Dover today to collect the dog, starting at 4:30am! He’s a keeper. 💕 . . . AD: sofa @loveyourhomeuk and cushions @jaminidesign part of previous collaborations. Poster: @weramused Paint: Farrow and Ball ‘Pavilion Grey.

Laid back Sundays with sleep ins, sunshine (yay!) and sourdough (going for pizza bases too today 💪). This evening I’ll be live blogging for @stufflifestyle during the auction final of The Block NZ at 7pm. I have a feeling the reserves are going to make me throw up and my eyes pop out of my head. 🤢🥴 I drove past on Friday and they still had people working on the outside too, nothing like spending millions of dollars of a not quite finished apartment! Until then, if you’re having a super moochy day like me – my full rundown on the @duluxnz 2020 colour forecast is up on my blog, I’ll pop the link in my profile if you fancy a read. Photo taken (as always) using my @huaweimobilenz #huaweip30nz (gifted) ❤️ but I’m rather extra proud of this one (actual #gifted 🤣) #theblocknz #dogsofauckland #nzdogs #dtipetsonfurniture #dspets #duluxnz #italiangreyhound #pomchi

F U L L C I R C L E Today I learned that I have a tail. It’s cool. Super good for chasing and wagging at people who double tap this post – catch my drift? 😜❤️ ——————————— Cushions courtesy of @thecuriousdepartment . . . #brusselsgriffon #grumpygriffon #moodyportrait #squishednose #brusselsgriffonstagram #brusselsgriffonfans #grumpypuppy #bruxelloisgriffon #petitbrabancon #petitbrabançon #brusselsgriffonuk #londonbrusselsgriffons #gardenstyle #gardenpuppy #puppyportrait #puppyplay #pupvid #griffonportrait #lilgriffons #dailygriffons #doggosdoingthings #dailyfluff #brusselsgriffonsfans #brusselsgriffonfan #dtipetsonfurniture #puppylove #instapup

And some from me. These were taken over the last few days as I ended up having a 5 day weekend and caught the cats in the sweetest poses. Especially in the mornings smothering me. (Sorry these don’t show much furniture but it’s all I could find)
