Bozen’s Cottage

Posted on Thu, 30 Apr 2020 by midcenturyjo

When new owners purchased this 1842 four room Georgian cottage in Tasmania it was almost a ruin. Carefully it was restored, layers of unnecessary additions removed returning it to its subtle simplicity. But oh what stylish simplicity.

“The generations of families who previously occupied this house over two centuries were blacksmiths, carpenters and pastoralists. Their memory is recast in the new work through a series of finely crafted insertions, which provide contemporary amenity and create a delicate scaffold to the rooms.”

A small courtyard oasis

Posted on Thu, 30 Apr 2020 by midcenturyjo

A calming and relaxed garden in an urban setting. A small green oasis in the hustle and bustle. Cedar bench, large pavers, a mid green colour palette with interest coming from texture and leaf shape. Lush, private, inviting. I think I’d like to lean back on that bench, cold beer in hand and soak up some autumn sun. Social isolating in the perfect spot. Balmain courtyard by Think Outside Gardens.

Really lively and bright colours, playful wallpaper, an elaborate gallery wall, and vintage vibes are abundant in this Pennsylvania forever home designed by Michelle Gage. She has added so much energy to each space. Forever indeed! (Photos: Rebecca McAlpin)

A Victorian with a modern flair

When a Victorian home in Pennsylvania gets a modernized update, but maintains its original features that makes it special, you know it’s going to be a winner. Michelle Gage livened the heck out of this home with some bold colour and artwork, mid-century classic furniture and lighting and the bonus of an adorable dog. (Photos: Rebecca McAlpin)

Toffee coloured living

Posted on Tue, 28 Apr 2020 by midcenturyjo

Tailored and relaxed, contemporary with a hint of the past, stone and wood, textile and brass. Layer upon layer with simplicity at its heart. All swimming in toffee coloured loveliness. New York based architecture and interior design practice ASHE LEANDRO does it gain.
