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’s somewhere stylish. I think I’d be very happy working at the New York offices of Comfortzone by Melody Weir.

Green Gables

Posted on Thu, 19 Jul 2018 by midcenturyjo

While paying respect to the original Tudo- style house, this renovation takes a thoroughly modern approach. The result is a casual luxury, perfect for its beach side location. White, nude and grey tones reference the bleached coastal palette while materials evoke a warm and relaxed elegance.

A colourful Edinburgh Georgian flat

Posted on Thu, 19 Jul 2018 by midcenturyjo

This Edinburgh flat with its elegant Georgian lines is no shrinking violet. What could have been restrained and dare I say plain is instead alive with colour and pattern. Grey walls anchor the scheme allowing the designer Jessica Buckley to create a space that reflects the owners personality and style. The repeated use of pink and yellow must be so uplifting on a dreary Scottish day. Another great example of traditional with a twist.

A colourful beach home

A creative use of colour sets this house at Rehoboth Beach apart from others. Classic with a little touch of boho, eclectic and casually elegant, definitely traditional with a twist. By Alexandria, Virginia based Crosby Designs.

An old plaster moulding shop on the ground floor of an early 20th century building in Barcelona was dark and derelict until architectural firm Valentí Albareda created a magical light filled home with central courtyard and a distinct modern flavour inside its rustic exposed brick walls. Love the almost sculptural feel to elements such as the staircase and shelving.
