Under a Tuscan sky

Posted on Tue, 3 Sep 2019 by midcenturyjo

Is it a dream? A Tuscan farmhouse under a hot summer sun. Inside the rooms are starkly beautiful, a counterpoint to the blazing heat. A cool oasis that soothes the soul until, pow, a punch of  pink in the modern, metal kitchen. Fabulous living in the beautiful medieval town of Capalbio by Rome-based designer Ilaria Miani.

 

 

Dark drama

Posted on Tue, 3 Sep 2019 by midcenturyjo

Dark and dramatic, moody and marvellous this Woollahra cottage by interior architect Phoebe Nicol is like a stage set perfect for playing out your everyday life with panache. A wall of mirror increases the sense of space in the narrow house while a carefully curated collection of antique and contemporay furniture pices, artwork and objet plays against the dark walls. In contrast the bedroom is light yet soft, a personal oasis.

Working on a Saturday

It’s like I say time and time again. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it is somewhere super stylish or in this case stylishly minimalist. The Agency by Mathieson Architects.

Move towards the light

Posted on Fri, 30 Aug 2019 by midcenturyjo

It’s a little slice of heaven. A NYC loft with fabulous bones and an interior by design firm Sissy + Marley. Light floods in through arched windows while oak floors and exposed beams enhance the industrial feel. One moment it’s dramatic, the next serene but always a chic, always inspiring, family home. If luxury loft living in the Big Apple has been a dream of yours I suggest you move towards the light.
