A Connecticut country house

Posted on Thu, 28 Oct 2021 by KiM

This gorgeous Connecticut country home was designed by the legendary Robert Couturier and is a real stunner. Designed with a plethora of antiques, it looks fairly traditional but upon closer inspection there is evidence of subtle modern touches. I love the black and white tile floor through many of the main spaces. Always a classy and graphic choice.

I love the juxtaposition of rustic and  modern, of contemporary luxury and almost monastic stone walls. While preserving the old stone house’s character by repairing and maintaining the external walls, the interiors of this country house in Spain’s Galacia is light filled, sleek and modern … well almost.

The Alsace Hotel

Posted on Wed, 27 Oct 2021 by midcenturyjo

Just the thought of travelling again has me finding the most amazing hotels everywhere (or is that my algorithm?). How about LA’s Hotel Alsace by Home Studios? Mediterranean riffs with natural materials. Think terracotta hues, handmade tiles, rattan and wood, vintage pieces mixed with contemporary furniture. It’s on the bucket list.

A designer’s colourful home in Mexico City

Last year I featured the pattern-a-licious Guatemalan home of designer Rodman Primack. It seems he has since packed up and moved to Mexico City where his new home is awash with colour and patterns and some groovy mid-century furnishings. So much fun!!! (Photos: Stephen Johnson)

Hope townhouse

Posted on Tue, 26 Oct 2021 by KiM

I want to give this post-war townhome in London a great big hug. It is so serene and thoughtfully designed, which only makes sense as it is home to interior designer Sheena Murphy, founder of London-and-New-York-based studio Nune. Her signature style is calming, minimal, modern and bright. I prefer a bit of contrast in my interiors but this is too pretty to argue. Photos: Renée Kemp.
