Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 26 Sep 2020 by midcenturyjo

It’s like I say week in, week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Le Hideout by Montreal-based Ménard Dworkind Architecture & Design.

“A young couple looking for a home with soul buys a historic townhouse in DC that had recently been purchased by developers bent on modernizing the space. This couple came in at the eleventh hour before the demolition was complete and hired Zoë Feldman Design to bring back the character of this old home with modern touches, eclectic art and design, quirky touches, while focusing on the sustainability in line with their ideals.”

Don’t you love it when the story has a happy ending. A sleeping princess, a white knight and a fairy godmother to sprinkle about the magic.

Raspberry ripple

“Circus-like frivolity is conveyed with elegant strength via eclectic patterns and motifs.”

Vivid. Graphic. Bold. A contemporary apartment with a raspberry ripple repeat. “Crane in the Sky”, a Walsh Bay, Sydney apartment packing a colour punch and a luxurious material palette in just 200 sq m by interior design studio YSG.

Lake house luxe

Posted on Thu, 24 Sep 2020 by KiM

I often say I need about 6 homes to get in all the styles I really gravitate towards. In the case of this lake house if you buy one big enough you can get in several styles in one go! That may be a bit of humour but I actually love how D2 Interieurs managed to pull this off and it still be cohesive. There’s a sort of minimal earthy elegance in the foyer and Miami chic in the formal living room and a beach vibe in the casual living room and retro in a sitting room and boho retro in the main bedroom…. it may seem like alot of competing styles but it has a wonderful flow and with a fairly neutral colour palette it is a success.

Gardens by Miranda Brooks

Posted on Thu, 24 Sep 2020 by KiM

I am really trying to embrace the beauty of the fall season, but it is so heartbreaking knowing my days to enjoy the backyard and greenhouse with husband and cats are numbered. These gardens by landscape architect Miranda Brooks are sure to keep my spirits up and have distracted me if not momentarily from winter’s horrors that are soon to come. (Yes, I hate winter that much, especially during a pandemic when I cannot escape it)
