This chic, contemporary home may look a little museum-like and precious but it is a family home with some really beautiful and bold colours that tone down the seriousness and create a more fun and inviting vibe. I love that combo where the friends of the parents and kids alike are envious and always want to stop by and chill. Designed by Monica Fried. (Photos: Nicole Franzen)

A Queen Anne manor house in Norfolk

Posted on Wed, 22 Feb 2023 by KiM

This early 18th century Queen Anne manor house in Norfolk is just overflowing with incredible period details, pretty colours and patterns and all the comforts that must have the owners never wanting to leave. Carlos Garcia is a master at bringing traditional décor into this era. I am such a huge fan of his work. (Photos: Paul Massey)

Warm contemporary

Posted on Tue, 14 Feb 2023 by KiM

We have known L.A. designer Mark Cutler for many years, from back when we first started this blog over 16 years ago. He reached out recently to say hi and share the news that he has partnered up with another designer, Nichole Schulze, and together as cutlerschulze they are creating magical spaces including this dreamy project. It is a modern home that they have added a mix of contemporary and antique elements to create a really dynamic and intriguing vibe that I can get behind.

Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 11 Feb 2023 by midcenturyjo

It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend then it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Then again is it really work if it’s in this lovely space? Then I realised it’s not a commercial gallery at all but a private one for both large-scale entertaining and retreat. Gallery Barn by IF_DO.

The other day I shared the Provence home of designer Enrica Stabile of Solamente Giovedi….and now I would like to share her equally fabulous apartment in Milan. A bit Gustavian, a bit Scandinavian, a bit Southern France and European chic in a space that includes lovely windows and moldings, old doors, and a bathroom with huge columns that completely elevates (literally) the space.
