The mystical qualities of a centuries old home

Posted on Sun, 26 Jan 2020 by KiM

I have imagined for many years of living in a mid century modern home, an industrial loft, and a rustic relic of a home. This would be the rustic relic of my dreams. It is a 16th century oak framed farmhouse 2 hours outside of London, set on 2 acres of wild gardens and meadows, with 7 bedrooms and numerous outbuildings. I could cry this is so beautiful. Available as a location home through Shoot Factory.

Working on a Saturday

It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend then it better be somewhere stylish. Ya Vsesvit, an architectural studio, showroom and 80 seat lecture room for events in Kiev by Yakusha Design Studio.

Luxurious and liveable. Antiques coexisting with contemporary pieces. Tailored and sculptural. These are the spaces of New York designer Robert Passal.

Astor Apartment

Posted on Thu, 23 Jan 2020 by midcenturyjo

The brief was to update this apartment in Sydney’s heritage listed interwar Free Classical style Astor building. What resulted was sophisticated modern living while respecting and restoring the heritage bones. The stunning inner city Sydney views are an added bonus. My favourite part? The new gently curving entry, a feature that seems as if it was always part of the fabric of the building. By Madeleine Blanchfield Architects
