The Glengrove

Posted on Tue, 25 Oct 2022 by KiM

A space designed by Ashley Montgomery has an old world feel in an entirely reimagined way. Carefully-curated, artisan-made, textural, tonal, and timeworn—she composes each space with storied, contrasting elements. The result is organic, collected, and unexpectedly effortless
I fell head over heels in love with this home and then nearly fell off my chair when I found out Ashley is from Barrie, Ontario. This home is everything – unique, fun, moody, eclectic with incredible colour combinations. I am 150% on board with this. (Photos: Lauren Miller)

Kelling Designs

Some colour and pattern is what London & Norfolk based Emma Deterding of Kelling Designs is all about, whether it be a city, country or manor home. A bit traditional and classic, with some elegance and practicality to round out the spaces. Lovely.

Show and tell

Posted on Mon, 24 Oct 2022 by midcenturyjo

I love an interior design show house. It’s the perfect place for designers to push the boundaries and explore ideas that have been tumbling around in their brains. They’re a show and tell, a veritable fountain of inspiration. Brooklyn Designer Show House by interior design firm Chused & Co.

Barcelona beauty

Posted on Mon, 24 Oct 2022 by midcenturyjo

A marriage of new and vintage with a distinct mid century vibe. A neutral colour palette warmed by wood tones and brightened by the light streaming in through the large windows. Natural style and simple sophistication. Turó Park Barcelona by Alex March Studio.

Located in the bastide town of Castillonnès, on the border of the Dordogne, this grand building was designed by Victor Louis-famed for the Opera House in Bordeaux. The current owners have sensitively and sympathetically restored the house under the supervision of batiments de France. In the lower ground floor, the medieval fortifications can still be seen; and in the floor below there is an open water source. The ground floor comprises an imposing entrance hall, 4 salons and a grand salon, opening to a terrace with panoramic views over the surrounding countryside. and a large kitchen. The first floor comprises five en suite bedrooms, accessed by two staircases. The east wing could provide two further rooms/apartments. There is a separate self contained apartment in the lower ground floor with its own access.
I think I’m in love! That courtyard and U shaped layout is fantastic. Also nice to see a lovely interior. I would be quite happy to live with it just as it is (at least for some time). For sale (and photos) via Leggett Immobilier and Le Figaro Properties.
