Designer’s own

Posted on Mon, 6 May 2024 by midcenturyjo

Studio Johnston Head of Interiors and Project Director, Stefania Reynolds, ingeniously revamped this city-fringe apartment using a Mediterranean color scheme and clever spatial changes. Removing a kitchen column expanded the area and created a seamless overlapping layout. Two key adjustments maximized functionality: closing one end of the galley kitchen to create a separate home office and adding a storage unit with sliding doors. The dining area features custom-designed furniture and softening geometric lines with curved joinery and plush seating, all adorned in rich, earthy tones.

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. Indie Spa by Cera Stribley.

Located in historical Kyiv’s centre, this apartment was designed by Yevheniia Dubrovska for her client a young female graphic designer. The owner wanted distinct spaces within the regular layout: a bedroom, a separate wardrobe and an active zone. The 4-meter-high ceilings allowed for tall doors and classic transoms. The vintage-themed interior includes a refurbished dining table and furniture sourced from across Europe, while newer pieces were crafted from the designer’s sketches. Colour accents, like pink tiles and a blue ceiling in the bathroom, add character, aiming for a cozy, historical ambience.

Sag Harbor retreat

Posted on Thu, 2 May 2024 by midcenturyjo

“Originally constructed in the 18th century, this five bedroom residence with guest house in Sag Harbor, NY, was updated for contemporary comfort with layers of luxurious neutrals. A carefully curated mix of vintage and custom-designed pieces make a relaxing weekend retreat for crowds large and small.”

Casual luxury. Beautifully fresh and light. I’d be happy with just the guest house! Sag Habor by Anna Karlin.
