A beach house on Martha’s Vineyard

Posted on Mon, 20 Jan 2020 by KiM

Boston-based designer Nina Farmer bought this 1950s single-story home set on its own private beach on Martha’s Vineyard, went against the grain and gave it some Moroccan touches, and then sold it. Beach vibes be damned! Unexpected is the way to go, always.

I am desperate for a virtual transportation to a warmer climate while I stare out through the ice frozen on my window (it’s currently -26C) at the blizzard pounding us with snow (20 cm). When I spotted this home in Mallorca on Sköna hem I knew it was just what the doctor ordered (I coincidentally am fighting the onset of a cold).  Formerly a farm and vineyard, it had been abandoned for 70 years until its new homeowners from Sweden found it and transformed it into their dream home. And what a dream it is!!!

Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 18 Jan 2020 by midcenturyjo

It’s like I say time and time again. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend let’s hope it’s somewhere stylish. Doctor_K by Perspective.

In true Sasha Bikoff fashion, she has taken something ordinary and made it extraordinary. Ok, this “Garden State Revival House” in Newark, New Jersey isn’t exactly ordinary but it’s sooooo traditional on the outside that you would never in a million years expect to see rooms painted pink, yellow, green, red, purple, blue, teal, lime. The insanity!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!

I want to be a potter

Posted on Thu, 16 Jan 2020 by midcenturyjo

I want to be a potter so I can have an amazing studio like this one designed by Jeremiah Brent. Don’t care if my pots are lousy. Just want to spend my days with my hands in mud in such a wonderful space. As for the terrace don’t even get me started!
