Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 20 Jul 2019 by midcenturyjo

It’s like I say time and time again. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it certainly helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Quiet Storms jewellery store by Elizabeth Roberts Architects. (P.S. Great idea for a pop-up shop.)

A funky bungalow in Montauk

Posted on Fri, 19 Jul 2019 by midcenturyjo

Time to escape the everyday. Time for another virtual getaway. We’re headed to Montauk, New York,  a village at the east end of the Long Island peninsula but we’re not headed to a home full of  Hamptons’ clichés. No our getaway is a cool surf-inspired bungalow where mid century meets boho. Light, bright and perfect for up to 8 guests. I’m filing those exterior wall slats in my inspiration folder.

A stylish Gramercy Park apartment

Posted on Fri, 19 Jul 2019 by midcenturyjo

Timeless and elegant but with an edge, a little frisson. Design classics meet curated collections, eclectic with personality. Old, new and of course killer art (pun intended). Gramercy Park apartment by Alberto Villalobos of interior design studio A. Villalobos.

I’m still in London and I’m still lamenting the fact that I can’t afford anything at all but a girl can still live vicariously through real estate listings. I must say that I could move straight into this split level apartment in an old print works factory in East Central London between Old Street and Clerkenwell. Exposed beams, bold blue kitchen and great art. Love it all.  Mitchell Street, London EC1 via The Modern House.

I’m real estate strolling scrolling in London again. Am I crazy? The property may be amazing but the prices are eye watering. Fancy a Georgian era townhouse with a stylish modern twist slap bang in the Soho area? Do you have a fistful of dollars? Oh well we can dream can’t we. St Anne’s Court, London W1 via The Modern House.
