A heady mix

Posted on Mon, 15 Jul 2019 by midcenturyjo

Faded grandeur, modern furniture, tribal touches, truncated torsos,  a confection of a little girl’s room and a blowsy summer garden. It’s a heady mix. Séguier, Paris 6 by Isabelle Stanislas.

A fashionable family home

An elegantly understateded home for a fashion designer and her family sees a contemporary redesign that respects the historic building in Sydney’s eastern suburbs while pushing finishes and forms. Think grand and wordly layered with textures and tones. Interior design and styling by Alwill and architecture by Luigi Rosselli Architects.

Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 13 Jul 2019 by midcenturyjo

You know what I’m going to say don’t you? If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend then it helps, oh it certainly helps, if it’s somewhere stylish. The Horse  in Manly, Sydney (oh the watches and leather goods!) by Triibe.

 

“Chinampa” is the name given to the floating gardens used for cultivation by the Aztecs. It’s also the name of a one-bedroom 58ft widebeam canal boat on London’s Regent Canal. That’s right I’m real estate stalking a London canal boat and why not? It’s a wonderful mix of vintage and bespoke, romantic and stylish. I might not dream of running away to the high seas but I could very easily settle into this small and beautifully formed home afloat. Link here while it lasts.
