Feels like Summer

Just one look at this North Bondi beach house by Kate Pulsford of Villa Interior Design and it feels like summer. Seamless indoor outdoor rooms, casual but sophisticated family living and beautiful light flooding in.

Living in the 70s

Posted on Fri, 30 Sep 2022 by midcenturyjo

“Located within an early Merchant Builders development, think earthy textures, 70s sensibility and a magical green oasis.”

This sympathetic reworking of a classic Aussie 70s house by Melbourne-based Studio Wonder is modern yet retro, full of colour and texture. Love the original wooden raked ceiling, the polished concrete floors and the standout art.

Interior designers’ attention to detail and ability to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary is something after many years so blogging still continues to amaze me. Such is the case with the 1,750 sq ft Park Avenue apartment of designer Wesley Moon. It was bland and uninspiring and he went all out with onyx and marble and gilded wall panels and de Gournay wallpaper and gilded glass and cerused wood. It was transformed into his own version of the Vatican. Or a museum. (Check out the before/after pics)

A meld of materials, textures, and elements indigenous to the surrounding Mexico region and landscape
Nicole Hollis can take something as casual as a beachfront home in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and add her dramatic touches with art and lighting and accents to create a unique statement. Beachy never looked so cool. (Photos: Douglas Friedman)

Like an old sweater

If this home in Brooklyn Heights by Studio Dorian is like an old sweater it’s definitely a cashmere one. Relaxed and timeless, cozy and welcoming. After all we have been through these last few years quality doesn’t scream look at me. It says come to me.
