A masterclass in layering textures

Posted on Wed, 28 Aug 2019 by midcenturyjo

It’s warm, casual and super stylish. It’s all you’d expect from a vacation home … hang on it’s more than you’d expect from a vacation home.  A mix of high end and the found, family memories, a soft desert palette and the texture, all that glorious layering of texture.

A little Cereal on top of the world

Posted on Wed, 28 Aug 2019 by midcenturyjo

Maybe not the top of the world but how about a stellar view from this Greenwich Peninsula apartment? And the cereal? Why it’s a collaboration between Cereal Magazine and Conran. Featuring contemporary and vintage pieces in a moody grey setting of concrete, stone and dark timbers the Cereal ABODE is for sale via Aucoot.

Just down the road from the last house is this little white cottage built in 1847 but now a sophisticated home for modern living. Perhaps not as grand as the last house but a little more to my liking. Less housework anyway 🙂 Link here while it lasts.

I know I’ve posted this home before but it’s been relisted with a new agent and you know what that means … more pictures and different styling! (Yes yes also that it has been on the market for a long time.) Still a super stylish, very feminine home. What amazed me even more was its astonishing position. Great view of the harbour and all its iconic landmarks yes but that drone shot looking back across the ocean and the cliffs? Wowza. Pity you can’t get that aspect from the house. Still for sale here while the link lasts.

Working on a Saturday

It’s like I say time and time again. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend (or into the dentist at any time) it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Advanced Dental Centre by William Burton Leopardi.
