Mid century wonderful 2

Posted on Wed, 11 May 2011 by midcenturyjo

High in the hills above L.A. it’s hip and fab or is that groovy? A white box jewel of mid-century design. Clean lines, great views, and furniture to die for. Interior designer Darryl Wilson’s work has featured before on DTI and it seems it is still drinks by the pool with the cool set. Love it!

It’s all about the light with these images by photographer Jean Allsopp. Natural light. Clear, crisp, warm, real. Whether elegant and restrained colour palettes in stylish southern homes or rich saturated hues and vibrant children’s rooms Jean Allsopp takes the light and creates something special. Ambiance and clarity, honesty and a beauty.









Richmond stalking

Posted on Mon, 9 May 2011 by midcenturyjo

Today’s stalking post proudly brought to you by DTI reader Andrea. (Ha! Another stalking addict!)

Industrial brick facade morphs into stylish inner city oasis. Love the multi-nature of this Richmond, Victoria home. Cool, edgy warehouse, classic, at times traditional interior and a walled courtyard that belies the fact that the hustle and bustle of the city is just beyond. This is one property I’d love to see professionally styled and shot for a magazine spread. I don’t think the real estate photographer does it justice. Still I’d love to live here! In my dreams. Link here while it lasts. Thanks Andrea.

Yummy like JAM

Smooth like chocolate. Refreshing like sorbet. Yummy like JAM. Jeffrey Alan Marks. It’s traditional with a twist. Refined with quirky. Curated and at times a little kookie. I mean a boat on the bedroom ceiling. Cool! Love the first few rooms. LOVE.





Swedish home

Posted on Wed, 4 May 2011 by midcenturyjo

Why are the Swedes so good at getting it right? Casual yet stylish, comfortable and cozy, family focused and perfect for entertaining friends. Yesterday’s apartment prompted Anna to send us a link to her sister’s home which is currently listed for sale. What a lovely house! What a shame to be selling! I’m sure that the owner is heading on to greener pastures but still…. imagine leaving those posts and beams, the rustic floors and ceramic stoves. Love the open plan living, dining, kitchen with clever central storage and the attic! Swoon! I’m seriously thinking of immigrating to Sweden.

P.S. Anna’s sister is called Linnea and you can see more of her lovely home on her blog Linneas Blommande Värld.
