If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Story27 Productions by Night Palm.

A cottage renovation

“A nurse with a busy lifestyle wants more function in her early 1900s home without losing its character & charm.”

A neutral colour palette doesn’t necessarily mean bland. Layers of texture and natural materials add warmth and life. A sweet small home, a calming escape from a hectic work life. St. Kilda Aussie Cottage Reno by Studio Ezra.

A successful landing

Posted on Fri, 29 Sep 2023 by midcenturyjo

After six intense years in Manhattan, the owners asked interior and furniture designer Bateaumagne to transform this former artist’s studio hidden in a leafy courtyard in Paris’ 6th arrondissement. They created a spacious loft-style living area on the ground floor, preserving the studio’s artistic essence with modernist walnut woodwork. Upstairs, vibrant mid-century colours define the rooms, while Winkelmans tiles adorn the bathrooms. Their eclectic choices, like the Cameleonda sofa and Verner Panton chairs, resulted in a harmonious and artistic family-friendly space.

A family home in the Hudson Valley

Posted on Thu, 28 Sep 2023 by KiM

In New York’s Hudson Valley, a young family found a home with room for roots and growth. Overlooking sun filled meadows and secret wooded glades, this home creates indoor and outdoor spaces for family, for friends, and for the years ahead. The furniture and accessories mix mid-century masters with 19th century French and American antiques. Woven together with layered textiles, vintage pottery and black and white photographs the rooms invite family festivity, celebrations among friends, and new growth. Outdoor spaces beckon: the comfortable lounges and swaying perennials around a pool, a table set for an evening of revelry, and a ring of mushroom stools brewing magic in a clearing. Together, it’s a home for enchantment.

Warsaw-based Colombe Studio never ceases to amaze me with their creativity and attention to detail. This kitchen may not be huge or have lots of storage but it’s a work of art and absolutely beautiful. This apartment is giving me somewhat museum vibes but in the best way as it is still inviting but every item and every detail makes such a statement. Photos: Kasia Gatkowska
