Clean and cohesive. Modern and minimalist. A mix of custom and vintage. It’s a fabulous refurb in the NoHo neighbourhood. Bond Street Apatment by Home Studios.

Martha’s Vineyard Farmhouse

Posted on Mon, 1 Mar 2021 by midcenturyjo

It’s a coming together, a partnership, a considered mix that transformed a town’s old post office into a contemporary farmhouse. Sullivan + Associates worked on revising the layout while interior designers White Arrow worked their magic on the interiors for this historic Matha’s Vineyard renovation. Vintage pieces with modern furniture, shiplap and traditional features with the needs of contemporary living. “The home’s interiors take inspiration in the nearby ocean and farmland, with indigo-dyed canvas, warm textural linen, natural fibers, and leather.”

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. Thinkerbell (with offices in an old knitting mill hence the string art) by Cera Stribley.

Georgian modern

Posted on Thu, 25 Feb 2021 by midcenturyjo

“Our approach was to design each interior space with crisp, yet sparing architectural embellishments, punctuated by layers of unexpected surface materials and a museum-quality art collection … We wanted it to feel ornate, but also feel light and classical, with a hyper-modern edge.”

Designer Dylan Farrell named the project Georgian Modern. I call it a fabulous mix of different styles and eras with a museum-quality art collection.

Passing it on

An inter-generational change of hands meant not only a contemporary makeover for this Park Avenue apartment but that interior designer Jeremiah Brent was asked to honour the family matriarch, the previous occupant. The starting point was a stellar collection of Mesoamerican pottery and the statues crafted by the husband’s mother.
