What’s cooking?

Posted on Fri, 28 Feb 2020 by midcenturyjo

With its beautiful stone walls and light flooding in through floor to ceiling windows you could probably throw in a couple of old wooden boxes and a camp stove and this space would still look magical. Adelaide-based Georgie Shepherd has taken this kitchen dining space to the next level. Country style kitchen goals!

More than your everyday bathroom

Posted on Fri, 28 Feb 2020 by midcenturyjo

A little quirky and a lot of luxury. From its checkerboard stone tiles to the weighty presence of the English bath tub, from the marble vanity to the pewter and oak tapware this little gem by Sydney-based AP Design House is more than your everyday bathroom.

Eclectic elegance in a Connecticut home

Posted on Thu, 27 Feb 2020 by KiM

One of my favourite design firms, Studio DB, created magic in this family home in Greenwich, Connecticut. The elegance of the architecture is brought down a notch with some beautiful shades of grey and an unexpected touch of glossy teal. Statement mid-century furniture and lighting mix with a bit of boho mixed in to the kid-friendly spaces create an eclectic and youthful vibe in what could have been a very stuffy, traditional home.

Woodside Residence

Posted on Wed, 26 Feb 2020 by midcenturyjo

“Nestled within the established Bird in Hand Wine estate, the Woodside Residence is home to a family of five. With three children under one roof, the circa late 1800s homestead was full to the brim. Via a homogenous extension, the footprint was enlarged and internal spaces renovated, designed to exude country hospitality, set within tranquil surroundings.”

A charming modern interpretation of country living. So many standout design features. The transition from living to dining up concrete stairs beside the double sided fireplace. The large steel and glass window doors that allow extensive views of the lush garden. The mudroom! Woodside Residence by Enoki
