Love Lane

Posted on Mon, 23 Aug 2021 by KiM

Loving the colourful traditional+contemporary feels of this home designed by Newton, Massachusetts based Liz Caan. Love Lane was a true labor of love for Liz and her team. The clients were moving from the city and this charming Tudor would become the home that their three small children would grow up in. Liz enlisted an architect and contractor to help correct some of the home’s misgivings that had happened over the years from previous owners. In an 18 month span, Liz and her team gave this home new life by renovating the bathrooms, updating the kitchen, moving a laundry room and reconfiguring a portion of the second floor and the master suite, and finally, decorating and furnishing the entire home. We set out to create a home that was colorful and inspiring, setting the stage for many years of happy memories for this young family of five.

Sunday’s château

Posted on Sun, 22 Aug 2021 by KiM

Today’s château is located in Caussade (a commune in the district of Montauban, located in the Tarn-et-Garonne department in the Occitanie region in the south of France). A mouthful that makes it sound fancy. And a château needs a fancy location. This 14th century, 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom home on 4.7 acres of land is a stunner with rustic, casual vibes and why I chose it over many of the much more posh/elegant châteaus I found in my search. 3 floors in an L-shape are set around a central stone staircase. A lovely pool is a bonus feature. If only I had €995,000. For sale here.

Working on a Saturday

It’s like I say week inweek out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. The Commons Co-working by Siren.

Contrasting elements

Posted on Fri, 20 Aug 2021 by midcenturyjo

Constrast between the Edwardian home in front and the modern at times brutalist rear extension with its strong solid forms. Contrast between block and marble and timber cabinetry. Constrast between dark and light, in and out. All this contrast in a South Yarra, Melbourne home, the result of a successful collaboration between Pop Architecture and Beatrix Rowe Interior Design.

Contemporary meets rustic

Posted on Fri, 20 Aug 2021 by midcenturyjo

Contemporary meets rustic in this Madrid apartment by Las Perelli. Think a restrained colour palette of off whites and sands, a mix of vintage and modern pieces, shiny metals against linen and rattan and always light-filled rooms with floaty curtains skimming floors.
