Modern living in a thatched cottage

Posted on Tue, 12 Nov 2019 by midcenturyjo

Such a well considered balance. All chocolate box thatched cottage on the outside. All modern living expectations on the inside. Icing on the cake? More than enough historical character internally preserved to keep you smiling sweetly. Gloucestershire Cottage by Sarah Delaney Design.

The conservatory

Posted on Tue, 12 Nov 2019 by midcenturyjo

Usually I would be waxing lyrical about the barn conversion. I mean come on, great rustic kitchen, soaring white ceilings but sorry I only have eyes for one thing. OMG that is the BEST conservatory. Full stop. No contest. By MAN architecten, a creative studio for sustainable architecture and interior architecture based in Sint-Niklaas, Belgium.

It’s like I say time and time again. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Bennetts Hill House by Run for the Hills.

Nantucket nuances

Posted on Fri, 8 Nov 2019 by midcenturyjo

TGIF! Time to getaway from the rat race. Perhaps an island escape. Time to day dream about owning a home like this Nantucket beauty by San Francisco based interior designer Katie Martinez. Her work is relaxed, classic, natural. No fuss, no cliché just summer house simplicity and style.

Reader’s home

Posted on Fri, 8 Nov 2019 by midcenturyjo

Kim and I get to share some of the most inspirational homes from around the world but the best homes of all are our readers’ homes. I loved it when long time follower Jagoda Owczarek from Gdańsk, Poland sent us photos of the home she shares with her husband, 3 children and cat. Design has always been her passion and now having completed her studies she has opened her own business O!studio. If her stylish home is anything to go by then she will have nothing but success.
