Like a sea shell

The designer says “Looking directly out to Bondi Beach, this residence captures the very essence of Sydney’s beachside living. Filled with natural light, a palette of muted tones draws in the ocean without competing with the view.

The spaces have a luxurious easiness to them. Materials were selected based on their tactile qualities; kitchen benches are a crackled ceramic, the timber joinery has a raw feel and soft-coloured concrete floors are cool underfoot. The interior spaces flow into one another but thresholds are expressed with deep timber architraves. The result is a residence that captures the colour and easy spirit of Bondi Beach.”

I say the curves and spirals along with the hints of blush pink remind me of a sea shell and as it overlooks Bondi Beach I’m sure if you put your ear up against a wall you will hear the sea. Beach House by Richard Stanisich.

A beach home in Cap Ferret

Posted on Mon, 4 Feb 2019 by KiM

We’re up to our eyeballs in snow here in Ottawa, and the -30ish temps are getting really old and wearing me out. I’m constantly dreaming of warmer climates and sunshine so it seems fitting I share this beautiful beachy home in Cap Ferret, France with you. It belongs to decorator Sylvie Langaud (Paule-M) and her husband and is where I long to be right about now.

Beachside chic in Chicxulub

Posted on Wed, 16 Jan 2019 by midcenturyjo

An asteroid may have crashed into the Yucatán Peninsula at Chicxulub many, many years ago but this beachside residence in the same town by Mexican designer Sofía Aspe packs just as much punch. (I know. I know. Lousy pun.) Chic and sophisticated yet relaxed with a touch of rustic. Right now I’m daydreaming of sipping cool drinks in the seaside cabana.

 

 

Beach apartment in Spain

Posted on Thu, 20 Dec 2018 by midcenturyjo

Not your typical beach apartment but then again Cobalto Studio are not your typical interior designers. The Barcelona-based firm is equally as talented when it comes to art direction, set design, event concept design and prop styling. The apartment has a zen-like, rough luxe feel while paying homage to the traditional Spanish vernacular. Definitely not your mass produced holiday let look.Perfect for your stylish seaside getaways.

Italian holiday

Posted on Thu, 22 Nov 2018 by midcenturyjo

There is a verve, a spark to the work of Giuliano Andrea dell’Uva Architetti, that minimalism loaded with colour and personality but remaining true to the history of the building and the site that is so very, very Italian. Perched high above the sparkling blue waters of Capri is a hotel with not just amazing views but inspiring interiors, a perfect example of this style of Italian modern minimalism.
