Exuberance for life

Posted on Wed, 19 Jan 2022 by midcenturyjo

There is nothing cookie cutter or half baked about this house by Madrid-based interior design studio Marta de la Rica. It’s about a celebration of life, of vintage pieces and modern touches, theatre and innovation.

Scandinavian by the sea

Posted on Wed, 19 Jan 2022 by midcenturyjo

Relaxed and understated with a colour palette as soft as the sands that surround it. A nod to Scandinavian mid century classics but as unpretensious as a worn wooden table. A complete renovation of a Danish summer house that allows for modern living but reconnects the home with its past. DM Beach House in North Zealand, Denmark by London-based Pernille Lind Studio.

I am in love with every detail of this Georgian townhouse designed by London-based Barlow & Barlow. A bunch of fun colours (as they do), tons of great built-in storage in almost every room, a to die for outdoor courtyard, a cool velvet wrapped cinema room in the basement (I need this in my next home), so bold and liveable and such great energy.

It can be tough when starting with a builder-grade, white box of nothingness and wanting the result to be cozy and inviting. Marissa Bero managed to do just that in this Manhattan apartment, even with keeping the main living space white. Built-in bookcases create a much more homey feel in the living room area and the plush rug, lounge-y sectional and puppies really add to the chill vibe 🙂 Subtle patterned wallpaper in the bedrooms help add texture but maintain brightness.

An earthy yet sophisticated kitchen

Posted on Mon, 17 Jan 2022 by midcenturyjo

After sharing their work studio on Saturday I thought I really had to feature one of their bespoke kitchens. Villa Naarden by Eginstill is like all of their designs, a balance between sustainability and aesthetics, timeless with attention to the tiniest details.
