Casa Karina

Posted on Wed, 16 Jun 2021 by KiM

Jo and I have featured so many incredibly beautiful homes in Ibiza over the years and as a result I yearn to visit this magical place. Casa Karina (and several other villas) is a rental property of Amsterdam-born Tom van Amerongen who fell in love with Ibiza and moved there in 2009. It would be a dream to be able to stay here and enjoy the sun, warmth and the surroundings.

A gut-renovated home in LA

Posted on Wed, 16 Jun 2021 by KiM

Here is another project by Josh Greene I wanted to share with you. This old-school west L.A. style home in Brentwood, California was gut renovated for a young family. It too is a slam dunk, but this time the colour palette is much more neutral and the overall vibe is more casual and bohemian. (Photos: Shade Degges)

Bali beauty

Posted on Tue, 15 Jun 2021 by midcenturyjo

“The project is conceived holistically as an ecologically sustainable product, coexisting coherently with its omnipresent natural environment. Using locally sourced materials, such as buried Javanese teak, bamboo, and stones from Sumba, was deemed a priority … Every detail is considered so carefully that even the organic vegetables grown in the garden are part of the overall conception.”

Elegant yet casual the house is a series of 5 pavilions filled with the owner’s collection of textiles.  For me, it’s the sinuous infinity pool and that view. I cannot wait until travel restrictions are lifted and we can travel again as the estate is available to rent. Hartland by Bali-based Studio Jencquel.

Burnt toffee

Posted on Tue, 15 Jun 2021 by midcenturyjo

Sophisticated and moody. Masculine and beautifully curated. Mature yet at times quirky. It’s like burnt toffee, complex yet bittersweet. Highland by Memphis, Tennessee based Sean Anderson Design. (Kim has followed Sean’s career for many years. You can see her posts here.)

Curated maximalism in Madrid

Posted on Mon, 14 Jun 2021 by KiM

This space in Madrid is so beautifully curated. Layered maximalism, a museum-like quality and an air of elegance make this space really sing. Designed by Ramon Garcia Jurado. (Photos: Montse Garriga)
