A pool house and natural pool in England

Posted on Mon, 26 Jul 2021 by KiM

Sweet jeezus this is the pool of my dreams!!! I’ve always loved pools that have a “natural” look to them and this one is spectacular! The gorgeous pool house being a bonus. Water Artisans constructed the combined pond and swimming pool using a BioTop swimming pond system. It is 2.5m in the deeper end, with a concrete base laid down the length of the pool. It has wildlife friendly aquatic planting around the edges and uses a completely chemical free filtration system, which means it is easy to maintain and has low running costs. The pool relies on the sun and temperature to keep it warm. The contoured curved meadows adjacent to the pool are landscaped to encourage biodiversity and also protect the pool from prevailing winds.

A backyard oasis

Posted on Sun, 25 Jul 2021 by KiM

I have backyards on the brain as my husband and I continue to work on ours with seemingly never ending projects. Yesterday I finally painted out our white garage/shed and the difference is incredible (you can check it out here). I love this backyard with lots of hardscaping elements which is what we did alot of in our backyard to keep the maintenance (and watering) down. This is perfect for a family and entertaining.

Luxury reuse

Posted on Fri, 23 Jul 2021 by midcenturyjo

Alteration and change of use to this heritage listed commercial space has resulted in two levels of luxury loft like living.  Think old posts and beams meet marble, linen fluttering at old windows looking out onto the city, beautiful new details in an old colonial structure.

Modern Australian luxury

Posted on Fri, 23 Jul 2021 by midcenturyjo

“The interior design direction is informed by the laid-back Australian lifestyle layered with the depth of European tone. The interiors are designed to complement the architecture in geometry, materiality, and finish. The journey of the home is a sequence of shifting palettes that transition between spaces to provide a sense subtle separation within open plan spaces. The interior base palette is tonally consistent, composed of; polished concrete, walnut timber, rattan, and bronze, enriched with variations of colour and texture using marble and sandstone. The palette shifts to both complement the daily rituals of the family and also the connection with the landscape and bay. “
