A modern Victorian in San Francisco

Posted on Thu, 24 Jun 2021 by KiM

Oh, to have a house with an exterior that freaking cute! (San Fran, you sure do have some cuties!) And OH, to have this much space! I’M DEAD!!! It’s modern, yet classic and sophisticated and appealing to the masses. Designed by Lauren Nelson, photos by Seth Smoot.

A California home with a dreamy kitchen

Posted on Thu, 24 Jun 2021 by KiM

This home may look California from the street but it has such a warmth and natural, almost old world feel that you might think at first glance it’s in the South of France or Italy. Only things missing are the rolling hills and olive groves. Whatever feelings it evokes, it is absolutely beautiful and clearly cooking and entertaining where food is involved is key. Designed by architect/designer Eric Olsen. (Photos: Karyn Millet)

Finding beauty in the imperfect

Posted on Wed, 23 Jun 2021 by midcenturyjo

Sophie Rowell of Côte de Folk Interiors takes a home’s imperfections and makes them shine. No no not in a bad way, in a magical perfectly imperfect way. It’s a celebration and elevation of everyday beauty, of the authentic and individual. This is her own home. Pieces change in and out as she sources more treasure or shares her finds with others. I could be totally happy sitting in that dining room in whatever incarnation. Just need a pot of tea and a friend come to share it with me.

Cerused contemporary

Posted on Wed, 23 Jun 2021 by midcenturyjo

Yes it’s pracitical and beautiful but this contemporary house is taken to the next level by the bespoke joinery. Attention to detail and then just a little bit more. I’m swooning over the cerused oak featured throughout. House M by Cassandra Walker Design.

A modern farmhouse in L.A.

Posted on Tue, 22 Jun 2021 by KiM

A modern farmhouse with a reasonable amount of sophistication added throughout in case you actually thought it was going to be a farmhouse. 😉 The detailing references 19th century American cottage architecture, with honest box mouldings, coffered and beamed ceilings, wainscoting, picture rails, and paneled casings. The scale has been magnified to fit the tall, large spaces. At the same time, all the forms are distilled down to simple, unembellished profiles that suggest a fresh bearing for a new-vintage house.
