Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 3 Oct 2020 by midcenturyjo

It’s like I say week in, week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a Saturday it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Armitage Jones office space by Bergman & Co.

Raw and natural in a West Village townhouse

Posted on Fri, 2 Oct 2020 by KiM

This home is everything that would never come to your mind when you think of a townhouse in New York City. Exposed wood ceilings, extra wide wood floors, painted brick, concrete walls, steel and wood staircase, linen curtains, a stone tub…..this is everything you want in a raw, natural, earthy, wabi-sabi, zen-like retreat. I am in complete awe of the architecture and the incredibly well curated collection of furnishings. Designed by David Cafiero. (Photos: Stephen Kent Johnson)

Lots of creativity, a dose of chic elegance and some drama can be found among the spaces by New York and Detroit based designer Corey Damen Jenkins.

Taking cues from the haute couture runway, his projects feature luxurious and refined materials.  “My goal is to ensure that my clients’ homes are always classic, livable and without an expiration date”. We are committed to creating interiors that are elegant and luxurious but also functional, practical and never stuffy.

The veiled house

Posted on Thu, 1 Oct 2020 by midcenturyjo

“This addition to a double-fronted Victorian workers’ cottage is conceived of as a delicate veil that perches over a new glazed volume, providing cover and screening to new light-filled bedrooms, living spaces, and a pool that runs the length of the boundary. An understated, white-on-white scheme that is punctuated by moments of warmth from timber joinery.”

Wanaka Crib

Posted on Thu, 1 Oct 2020 by midcenturyjo

In a field, near a lake’s edge, in the beautiful land of New Zealand is a dream. A dream house, a dream lifestyle.

“The crib is a place to relax and focus on the social side of food, where cooking and dining become a culinary performance connected to the landscape. At 150-m2, the crib has the intimacy of a small house, but can comfortably sleep ten people, with two double bedrooms, an attic loft for two, and a bunk room with four beds.”
