Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 21 Nov 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. This, dear readers, is a medical practice (in a Haussmann apartment if you will) by Le Berre Vevaud.

From punching bag to plié

Posted on Fri, 20 Nov 2020 by midcenturyjo

“Here is a room to sweat, stretch, and have some fun! Similar to our own attitudes towards working out, this space approaches exercise with a sense of moderation, ease, humor, and delight. It is designed for the person who wants balance between action and relaxation, and who knows that function and aesthetics can coexist effortlessly. Turn the music on and do what moves you—hit up the boxing bag and go for the burn, or practice your pliés at the ballet bar. After the workout is through, find refuge in the beautiful vintage Wegner chair. Sit back and catch your breath, you are energized and ready for the day.”

We very rarely feature exercise rooms on the blog so when I found this gym/relaxation room by Cass + Nico Studio as part of last year’s San Francisco Decorator Showcase I knew I had to share. I’m loving the hand painted walls.

A stone’s throw

“Across the road from Little Manly beach, this timber clad beach house was designed for clients who have a love for tropical plantation homes of yesteryear. It is adorned by rare vintage Moroccan rugs and cane collectables.”

From the vintage cane (hello pretzel chairs) to the cascading plants and fabulous staircase there is so much to love about this relaxed beachside home in Little Manly on Sydney’s Northern Beaches by Jase Sullivan. AND it’s only a stone’s throw to the beach!

A renovated home turned into a work of art

Posted on Thu, 19 Nov 2020 by KiM

Ken Fulk is a magician. Or a maestro as it says on his website. I would have to agree. This home in San Francisco is magic. It was originally a simple 1920s shingled house but the light and the setting was idyllic, with unobstructed views across the park to the Golden Gate Bridge and the Pacific beyond. We set out to create something of enduring beauty and substance. Sparing no detail, we commissioned projects from old-world style artisans: woodworkers, metal workers, stone masons, plasterers, muralists. The result is far more than a custom home, it’s truly a work of art.
