Working on a Saturday

It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Cartwright by Stilo.

An 18th-century Georgian home in the Cotswolds

Posted on Fri, 28 Jun 2024 by KiM

This 18th Georgian home in the Cotswolds has a lot of “me” in it. It can’t decide if it wants to be muted or colourful, traditional or modern. So the result is an eclectic blend of all kinds of good things in one home, and it is cheerful and inviting. And now I want to hunt down an antique Bessarabian rug. Designed by Morrisstudio.

A renovated Greek Revival home in Connecticut

Posted on Fri, 28 Jun 2024 by KiM

The original Greek Revival house was built in 1833 and the modernist addition was built in 1936 to accommodate a private art collection. Our clients, art professionals themselves, purchased the house after relocating to Connecticut in 2016. This 5,600-square-foot renovation specifically focused on upgrading the kitchen, bathrooms, and mechanical systems. The design elements in this historic home complement the passions of its owners, providing an eclectic backdrop to display their much-cherished art collection. Taking a regional approach, we sourced furnishings from Western Connecticut and the Hudson Valley, which were mingled with the family’s heirlooms.
What a beautiful home with such history! It’s almost 200 years old but with the sensitive modernization of it along with the eclectic blend of furnishings and art, it works so well in present day. Designed by Hendricks Churchill. Photos: Chris Mottalini.

Imaginative contemporary living

Posted on Thu, 27 Jun 2024 by midcenturyjo

“Occupying a corner site, a north facing, end row semi-detached residence is re-imagined to make the most of its site’s northerly aspect and enjoy city district views not previously seen. Communal family spaces fan around the outdoor terrace and garden, to make the most of sunlight and sea breezes, forging a fluid relationship between interiors and garden, whilst utilising remnant areas to best advantage.”
