Old world vibes in a Palm Beach condo

Posted on Wed, 15 Nov 2023 by KiM

Old world charm and loads of antiques with vibes you would expect in a manor or castle-like setting from one of my Sunday posts, but instead in one of the last places I would expect – a Palm Beach, Florida condo. Architectural details like massive marble columns, salvaged door frames, ceiling beams and a wall of built-ins for dishes helps bring it all together. Designed by Studio Gusto. Photos: Charles Peed.

Casa Alamillo 2

Posted on Mon, 13 Nov 2023 by KiM

The Madrid apartment of Iñigo Aragón and Pablo López Navarro of design studio Casa Josephine is, as Jo commented in this post on a past project of theirs (I think located in the same building), ‘quirky yet oh so stylish mix of classicism and 80s Italian design‘. This one is perhaps leaning a bit more on the global/ethnic side but I am here for it! These designers have such a unique eye. Photos: Pablo Zamora

In inner Sydney, an artist and musician transformed their 19th-century Victorian terrace home, guided by their love for heritage, art and innovative ideas. The renovation incorporates hexagonal grey tiles, sparking a creative blend of materials, geometries, and textures. The design emphasizes openness, light and a strong indoor-outdoor connection. Sliding doors welcome in natural light, while a customized ‘cabinet of curiosities’ showcases their collections. The courtyard garden, reminiscent of a Victorian fernery, features vibrant art and unique architectural elements. Throughout, the original terrace’s charm is preserved, honouring its fireplaces, ceilings, floorboards, and stairs. Darlinghurst Terrace by Sam Crawford Architects.

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.
