A playful and pragmatic house

Posted on Tue, 26 May 2020 by midcenturyjo

“An extension to a single fronted Victorian Terrace located within Melbourne’s inner-north. Storybook House is a study of inner city living, this project optimises the existing footprint to create a functional small family home with a series of multi-use spaces. The building is curated to frame views into a series of open garden spaces – including internal courtyards, a roof garden and borrowing the landscape from the adjacent park and outlook to Melbourne’s skyline.”

Add in sustainable design principles, clever storage solutions and reference to the local community in materials and shape the result is collaborative, innovative, and pragmatic yet playful design. Storybook House by Folk Architects.

A pied-à-terre in a Tudor home

Posted on Mon, 25 May 2020 by KiM

Simplicity with neutrals and textures, creating serenity. Corinne Mathern was hired to convert the 1000 square foot second floor of a 1925 Tudor residence to a well appointed one bedroom apartment.  The space was tragically chopped up into five offices that masked the building’s angled ceilings and made them burdensome instead of beautiful. Corinne’s client wanted a light filled apartment with elements that nodded to traditional Tudor elements but with modern hues. The angles of the ceiling and the coved windows drove the design for this space. The lines created a soft, sculptural feel that we placed focus on by minimizing the door and window trims throughout the home. “The instant I saw the property, I knew the space had the potential to be a beautiful, light filled apartment with a serene, open feel.”

Montréal folks, we wanted to check in and address concerns about the shop’s operating hours. At this time, our brick and mortar boutique will remain open today as well as during the weekend during regular shop hours, if there are any changes we will make sure to let you know. For patrons of both our Canadian and International webstores, we’re still hard at work prepping and shipping your orders! We will be letting everyone know should the current situation lead us to temporarily close our storefront, and until then you can come by and visit this good boy right here, who is celebrating his sixth birthday and is bringing a big smile on our faces today. As always, be well, take care, and thank you for supporting us at this time.

Week 2 WFH update: Morris suggested we relax the dress code to make the atmosphere around the office "more fun". I'm not really on board with 'no pants Wednesday' but I guess we'll have to wait and see if it catches on. . . . . . #thedogandthedecor #dogsindecor #dogsinmyhouseandhome #sassydog #sillydogs #rufflife #whosagoodboy #goodboysofinstagram #blackdogsrule #blackdogsofinstagram #petportrait #doodlelife #bestwoofs #doodlesoftheworld #spoodlesofig #nzspoodles #cockapoo #cockerpoosofinstagram #cockapooclub #cockapoolove #doodles2love #doodlesrule #workingfromhome #dtipetsonfurniture #petsinbed #myinterioroasis #interiorescapism #covid_19 #mygorgeousgaff #sassyhomestyle

Any time I am not working I am outside enjoying all the sun and hot weather we’ve been getting lately. So here is a shot of Lucky napping in the she-shed, Felix inspecting the wrought iron bench I picked up at Highjinx, and 3 of the herd lounging outside with me, including Felix in a basket 🙂

I am mesmerized by the Swedish home of Fredrika Magnusson Ciotti of Art N Deco. It is life meets art. When you run a vintage furnishings shop how could you not bring work home with you? A beautiful space filled with beautiful things. Via Elle Decoration Sweden, photos by Mikael Lundblad.

Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 23 May 2020 by midcenturyjo

Slowly but surely, day by day we get closer to taking our lives back. One day if you have to be dragged into work on a Saturday it will help if it looks as stylish as this. P, Johnson Tailors New York by Tamsin Johnson.
