Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 2 May 2020 by midcenturyjo

Another week has passed. Another Saturday. Lockdown restricttions are slowly being lifted in my part of the world. We have been so lucky here. Others continue to be trapped in the nightmare that is the corona pandemic. It’s still a scary world out there and weekend work (or any work) is somewhere in a hazy future. And in that hazy future if we have to drag ourselves into work on a Saturday (or in this case yoga work out) it better be somewhere stylish like United Physiotherapy Group by Studio Ezra.

Earthy modern

This is an apartment I can get behind, and move into immediately. Clean lines, earth tones with hits of mustard yellow (I loooooove yellow), deep ochre(?) and salmon. Lots of comfy places to sit surrounded by pale woods and chalky walls. Appealing to the masses. By interior design duo Espejo & Goyanes. (Jo featured them back in February).

A bohemian romantic apartment in Lisbon

Posted on Fri, 1 May 2020 by KiM

Letícia of Lisbon-based Roof Design Studio (interior design, architecture and renovations, product design and graphic design) sent over photos of a beautiful apartment in a duplex in Lisbon that overlooks the Tagus river. In a perfect balance between neutral colors and the explosion of colours, between modern and clean design and pieces full of travel memories, between collector art and emerging illustration, walls have been torn down to create wider spaces and doors were eliminated to create greater visual connections. In these residential 170m2 you can find portuguese brands such as Mambo Unlimited Ideas, Dooq details, Theia tiles, Utu Lamps and many furniture pieces designed by the creative team of studio Roof, meticulously manufactured by the best national artisans. Sophistication and functionality were the keywords of the project, where each chosen material, each combination of colours and patterns and each perspective reflect the owner’s taste and personality.
