Colourful country home

Posted on Mon, 5 Jul 2021 by midcenturyjo

“We took a historic home that had seen better days and reworked windows, floor plans, raised roofs, and thoroughly renovated the kitchen and baths with a mix of architectural salvage and ingenuity. Our goal was to create a comfortable and cozy home inspired by the British countryside and Colonial America. We sourced an Aga oven, designed Shaker-inspired cabinetry, fabricated custom furniture, and decorated it in a moody palette, and layered old-world textiles.”

I have such a thirst for colour at the moment and this 1850’s cottage in New York state is like a big glass of cool cool water. A wonderful renovation that respects the building’s past but provides contemporary family living. Pound Ridge Farm by White Arrow.

Sunday at a beauty bar & cocktail lounge

Posted on Sun, 4 Jul 2021 by KiM

Welcome to Majesty’s Pleasure, a beauty bar & cocktail lounge in Toronto. The concept was the dreamland of an it-girl, contemporary and feminine with an unapologetic use of colour and materiality. Layered chainette fringe drapes, a marble sink that transforms into a champagne well and DJ booth, and some neon make this space super fun and unique. Designed by Author. (Photos: Niamh Barry)

Working on a Saturday

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. Modelogic by Two Street Studio.

Jeffrey Dungan Architects

Posted on Fri, 2 Jul 2021 by KiM

Jeffrey Dungan is an architect based in Alabama who is recognized for his clean and modern approach to traditional vernaculars and classical architecture but there is a modern and somewhat edgy approach he takes that is 100% my cup of tea. I could barely get through prepping this post as I kept going back through the photos to take a 3rd and 4th look to make sure I didn’t miss anything.

London based designer James Thurstan Waterworth of Thurstan creates unique, rather eclectic spaces whilst in keeping with the period of the architecture. Whether it be ornate and traditional, modern loft or a 17th century masseria in Puglia, each space is breathtaking.
