Morning light

Posted on Fri, 18 Mar 2022 by midcenturyjo

My second apartment today is filled with morning light. So much so that it is definitely one of the design elements beautifully employed by designers Akin Atelier. With its spectacular position on Campbell Pde in Bondi and the expansive views over the harbour the monochromatic interiors celebrate what is outside the windows while providing an oasis of calm within. Neutral, sophisticated beach side. Perfect.

A lakeside family retreat

How much fun would it be to have a retreat like this to escape to in the summer months? Or winter for that matter. I love the mix of contemporary and rustic cabin of the interior and each space is whimsical and lounge-y. Located on Lake Sunapee in New Hampshire and designed by Kate Maloney.

Timber and stone at the beach

Posted on Thu, 10 Feb 2022 by midcenturyjo

A striking combination of stone and timber, brick and polished concrete in a house with an easy flow between inside and out. It’s all about contemporary family living at the beach with plenty of space for entertaining friends. It’s about contrasts but also unity, void and solid, black and white.
