Often when you see a designer creating a space for an art collector it gives off very “museum” vibes but not in this newly renovated Paris apartment. Hauvette & Madani designed this space to showcase the art with many unique and sculptural pieces of furniture and brought back the Haussmannian features that add so much charm. The result is a really welcoming, cozy and has a really playful energy. I am in love with the retro-vibing pink and green kitchen. Photos: François Coquerel

Highlands House

Posted on Fri, 27 Oct 2023 by midcenturyjo

This remarkable hilltop dwelling seamlessly blends industrial charm with contemporary design. Three interconnecting pavilions sit atop a hillside in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales. Think contemporary design meets industrial-style barns, open-plan spaces and precast concrete panels. Connecting the pavillions is an art gallery walk defining areas and connecting with the vast landscape. In such a rural area sustainability takes centre stage, featuring solar power, rainwater harvesting and fire safety measures. This off-grid residence embodies meticulous planning, offering a unique blend of form, function, and environmental consciousness. Highlands House by Luke Maloney Architecture.

A Venice-comes-to-Camden apartment

Posted on Thu, 26 Oct 2023 by KiM

Back in 2019 I featured the Camden apartment of Luke Edward Hall and Duncan Campbell that was a very colourful combination of mostly green and pink and I fell in love with it. A few years later and maybe a few iterations later, their apartment now has a whole new “Venice” vibe (though still with shades of green and pink). Lots of graphic wallpaper. dark textiles, faux marble, a bold red kitchen topped with a pediment and urns, a lush fabric-laden bedroom make this version of their apartment so much moodier and by far my favourite.

Celebrating colour and art

Posted on Thu, 19 Oct 2023 by midcenturyjo

“Colour, materiality and the stimulus of art influence the many layers which interior architects and designers, Venetia Rudebeck and Romanos Brihi assemble in their work. Studio Vero was launched in 2014 and has since established a design vernacular for thoughtful spaces which combine a warmth, elegance, a reverence for tradition and sense of place.”

A joyful celebration of living with oomph. This Notting Hill house by Studio Vero is no shrinking violet. Colour, pattern, texture and standout art combine to bring to life modern family living.

Stylish in Valencia

Posted on Tue, 17 Oct 2023 by midcenturyjo

Ornate plaster details and stunning floors set the stage for a sophisticated mix of mid century, traditional and contemporary pieces in this Valencia home by Estudio María Santos. Timeless and functional yes but always with that certain something, that style. Favourite details? Dining in a library and the art … and the vintage design classics … and … and …
