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. Offices Paris 09 by Emma Donnersberg.

Mediterrean Modern phase 2

Posted on Fri, 13 May 2022 by midcenturyjo

Phase 2 of this Mediterranean modern makeover by Haus Love. Bedroom, bathroom and powder rooms. A beautiful exploration of textile, earthy pops in white rooms, warm timber highlights and glorious tile. Anyone else in love with the grey powder room? Swoon.

Mediterranean Modern phase 1

Heidi Woodman and her team from Indianapolis-based Haus Love have created a moody and masculine home that is timeless and organic. Timber and stone, natural textiles and black accents are the basis of this sophisticated Mediterranean style home. Stay tuned for phase 2 of this design.

“The house was in good condition however did not have the style or layout to suit a contemporary way of living for a modern family. We therefore set out to open up key spaces, such as the kitchen and dining area, creating a family-style ‘heart of the home’ space. The master bedroom received a luxurious en suite bathroom, by knocking down walls between a former dressing room and smaller bathroom.”

Bringing a European sensibility with strong Scandinavian undertones Pernille Lind Studio used a neutral colour palette and a beautifully curated mix of old and new, bespoke and antique to create a sanctuary for the family, a place for cherishing past memories and for making new.

A minimalist kitchen in Paris

Posted on Wed, 11 May 2022 by midcenturyjo

As I grow older my craving for minimalist living grows. I find the need to live simply, plainly, honestly more important. It will mean divesting myself of “things”, of clutter both within and in the spaces I live in. And if welcoming minimalism into my life means creating a kitchen like this one by Atelier Leymarie Gourdon then I have a lot to look forward to.
