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. Beauty Block by Melbourne-based Bergman & Co.

Arch House

Posted on Thu, 6 May 2021 by midcenturyjo

“This project is a triplex for a young couple who travel extensively for business who wanted the feeling of a quiet sanctuary for their new home. They partnered with BAAO to provide furnishings throughout the house. The existing building is a relatively compact Anglo-Italianate townhouse circa 1860, and a three-story extension was added to expand the living space. The house’s signature arched doorway and front window were the inspiration for much of the detailing for the renovated spaces.”

The repetitive arch motif leads the eye from room to room and floor to floor. The colour palette is restrained but pops of wallpaper and luxurious stone lift the scheme.

Mid-century meets traditional in this Lisbon apartment by André Vilar de Azevedo of Studio AVA and the result is fresh and decidedly on trend. Who would have thought that you could mix your blue and white pots with Jeanneret chairs and that a simple white hallway with modern mouldings and antique statuary could be so sexy?

Crittall & Hill

“We are passionate about long lasting design, working with a balance of opposing elements and materials to create a sense of energy and intrigue.

So few photographs in their portfolio but so much to like.  One to keep an eye on Stroud based design studio Crittall & Hill.

A double-height void is the centrepiece of this extension to an Edwardian house by De Rosee Sa. The Dulwich home is in an area with strict heritage guidelines and the client wished to enhance the character of the property while remaining sympathetic to the surroundings. A wonderful example of how modern and heritage can work in harmony with each other.
