Simple clean lines, painted floors, unpretentious furniture (except for the iconic 60s Joe Colombo “Tube” chair in the dark broody den) all spell out relaxed beach chic in Montauk. Studio Robert McKinley has done it again with another fabulous bungalow in their portfolio. If you dream of a relaxed beach getaway it’s for rent here.

Nina Farmer‘s design philosophy stems from a classical sensibility, incorporating an eclectic mix of furniture and accessories spanning different periods. Each of her projects is meticulously crafted to suit the unique needs and personal aesthetic of individual clients. With her discerning eye and skilful use of colour, Nina creates interiors that exude elegance, comfort, and timelessness. This Maine Coast house is the perfect example of her mastery of the mix. Midcentury with antique, folk art with contemporary art, texture upon texture and all complimenting that glorious view.

A Martha’s Vineyard cottage

If I were to have a cottage in a place like Martha’s Vineyard, I would want it to be decorated exactly like this. Especially that yellow kitchen. Such a charming and incredibly inviting home that I bet allows for the most epic granny naps and games nights. Historic preservation + deep energy retrofit + interior design by Cuppett Kilpatrick.

Lifestyle backyard

Posted on Mon, 3 Jul 2023 by midcenturyjo

“It was such a pleasure to design on such a unique block rarely found so close to the beach. A relatively flat block, it was the subtle level changes between the built forms and the gardens that enabled some creative design opportunities in the form of boardwalks and decks. These have been designed in a way that evokes a sense of the coast, meandering along a boardwalk with a body of water, grass or garden beneath you. That small, almost unnoticed separation makes all the difference. The pool has been comfortably nestled into a corner with limestone paving that also descends into the pool and throughout it, creating a beautiful water tone. The homeowner is fastidious about the lawn which is like a bowling green, and the garden needed to create holiday vibes where barefoot living is demanded as well as desired by anyone entering the Villa.”

It’s every Australian’s dream, a home by the beach and an amazing backyard. A truly fabulous lifestyle garden in Manly, Sydney by Landart.

Somers Boat House

Posted on Fri, 9 Jun 2023 by midcenturyjo

“A dilapidated asbestos-clad boat shed has been transformed into a treasured extension of the Somers Beach House, enjoyed by several generations of the family. The existing structure, built in the 1950s, has been replaced and remodelled to provide modern day amenity along the Somers beachfront, preserving the original footprint and floor levels of the existing building.”

If you liked the Somers Beach House you’re going to LOVE the boathouse. My days by the beach would be spent watching the water lap the shore within its timber-clad walls. Once again by Wellard Architects.
