Rustic in the Spanish countryside

Posted on Tue, 14 Jan 2020 by midcenturyjo

The extreme beauty of rustic living. Bright white against rough texture, flashes of bright colour, aged wood and mid century touches all amongst ancient olive trees. Making do has never been so chic. Can Canana by Barcelona-based Cobalto Studio.

Elegant in the Spanish countryside

Posted on Tue, 14 Jan 2020 by midcenturyjo

This country house in Extremadura in western Spain is a sophisticated marriage of old and new, rustic and elegant, modern photograph and heirloom art. Rural living with a surprisingly urbane touch and through it all a calm, unaffected beauty. What else would you expect from Isabel López-Quesada?

According to the bio on New York designer Sasha Bikoff’s website, her aesthetic is 18th century French Rococo mixed with 1960s Space Age Modern, 1970s French Modernism and 1980s Italian Memphis Milano, which she executes with bright and colorful fabrics and rare antiques. Proof of this is her wildly eclectic and vintage filled apartment in Greenwich Village. It’s fun and flirty and I could move right in and have a blast.

😸Happy #Caturday! ANNNNND STRETCH! I love this shot I took of Meisha the other day – my little Halloween cat! I think this is the first weekend in I can't even remember how long where we have no real plans, no major DIY (okay, I'm going to be doing a tiny bit of painting but it's super minor) and nothing we need to do and let me tell you, that feels so good. 🙌🏽 How are you spending your weekend?⁠ .⁠ .⁠ (As an aside, I'm going to be sharing some updates on the guest bedroom in November sharing that gallery wall so all that coming soon although this is a little sneak peek!)⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #swoonworthy #bengalsofinstagram #dtipetsonfurniture #catsofinstagram #bengalcat #bengalkitty #guestbedroom #bedroomstyling #bedroominspo #pocketofmyhome #bedroomdesign #howivintage #bedroomgoals #bohoglam #leopardisaneutral #boho #interiordesign #interiordesignideas #interiorboom #styleithappy #livefabulousandfearless #luxuryinteriorsonabudget #howyouhome #suyhome #ihavethisthingwithpink #abmlifeiscolorful #eclecticdecor

Archie looking very wistful! I think he’s going a bit la la though! Yowls all night about nothing! This comes from a cat that used to do silent meows and now he’s found his voice you just can’t stop him! 🐈 I have a fairly relaxing weekend: bit of work and a catch up with friends and loads of 💤 just what is needed after my week 👍 . . . #dreambig#art #myhomeisbeautiful #mybotanicalbungalow #styleinspo #homeinspo #designerdeinteriores #projetodeinteriores #lookatthosecolours #colourfulhome #styleithappy #snapit #inredningsinspiration #homedecor #livingroomideas #howistylemine #howivintage #vintagetable #pampasgrass #myhousemadehome #nestandthrive #interiorwarrior #catsofinstagram

The Halloween posts are out in force, and while we don't go in for decorating much here in NZ my finest home accessory does do particularly good posing in his favourite month of October. I've always been obsessed with the spooky and superstitious, and fancied myself a bit of a Sabrina (the dream) so when this tiny little black kitten (who shares my bday too!) came in to our lives 8 + years ago it felt like tremendous luck. A really lucky omen. The only thing better would have been a house with a turret room like Hocus Pocus (still aiming for this). I named him for Eddie in the Rocky Horror Show (you knew he was a no good kid), Sam named him Eddie for the pharmacist from Nurse Jackie. Though years later I learned his name personally means more than I realised. Anyway, he's grown in to a right meatloaf, and I just know if he could talk he'd be JUST like Salem. . . . .

If you've seen my posts/stories the past week you'll know I'm in Vienna. You may not have seen that I'm here because the hubs was part of the 1.59 marathon attempt team which happened yesterday (in charge of the lasers). And because we're STILL between houses it made sense for me and Winston to tag along. . Hubs has worked A LOT this week (including lots of 3am starts) and I've barely seen him. It was the Ineos 159 after party last night (with DJ Yoda!) so there is one very sore head this morning (not mine!). Plus we're now into week 9 of being semi homeless, and it's been SO nice to have our own little apartment this week, so today we plan on doing very little. We'll take Winston for a walk, maybe get some lunch, then I think we'll sit on this sofa and watch films. It's going to be brilliant! . . . #postwhatyoulove #postwhatmakesyouhappy #freeupmyinsta #dtipetsonfurniture #cockerspanielcuties #cockerspaniellove #howihome #apartmentdecor #smallspacesquad #greyinteriors #homedeco #homedecor #greysofa #homedetails #interiorsnapshot #dailydecordetail #interiordetails #interior123 #interiordecor

8-month-old Daisy June was rescued from a dumpster when very tiny and now she is the delight of our home.

And some from me. 1 – Taken at my twin sister’s on New years Day of her huge pup Benson. 2 – Felix lounging on a pillow on the sofa. 3 – Felix in the same spot being bothered by his buddy Frankie. 4 – Lot of cuddling happens in winter in my house. Frankie snuggling into Phoebe.

The power of flowers

Posted on Sun, 12 Jan 2020 by KiM

Winter in Canada can be dreary and colourless (the only pretty time is when there’s freshly fallen snow, before it turns to dirty slush) so when I stumbled upon the home of Madrid-based florist Loreto Aycuens I was desperate to share. It’s incredible what some greenery and florals can do to bring some life into a home and make you forget the horrors outside. Via Nuevo Estilo (photos: Pablo Sarabia).

I also took a trip to Loreto’s website and found these delicious images.
