Ethereal hues

Posted on Mon, 7 May 2007 by midcenturyjo

Sea foam green and palest blue. I love these faded vintage colours. So evocative. Calm, elegant, other worldly. They’re the perfect backdrop to boho modern, eclectic, vintage found style and even a more relaxed traditional, country or Swedish feel. Barely there blues and sea greens yum!

Mogul is one of LA’s hottest lifestyle stores. The lovechild of Tom Piscitello and Neal Wagner Mogul is a blend of new stylish contemporary furniture and vintage mid-century furnishings, accessories and Wagner’s original abstract artwork. Wagner and Piscitello create high-end residential and commercial interior designs. Glam, bad and so hip. Oouch!

Not only does this website reflect your super cool biting style but it’s a portent for your future – the mogul life.

Outdoor rooms part 2

Posted on Tue, 1 May 2007 by midcenturyjo

As the weather warms up for most of you it’s time to take another look at using outdoor spaces. Where I live in sunny subtropical Queensland we use our outdoor rooms all year round. Even in the southern parts of Australia there is only a brief period of the year where we don’t live outside. The fresh air beckons. And if you don’t have a permanent space to dine, laze and while away the day then a rug some pillows a garden set or hammock can extend your living space.
