A funky bungalow in Montauk

Posted on Fri, 19 Jul 2019 by midcenturyjo

Time to escape the everyday. Time for another virtual getaway. We’re headed to Montauk, New York,  a village at the east end of the Long Island peninsula but we’re not headed to a home full of  Hamptons’ clichés. No our getaway is a cool surf-inspired bungalow where mid century meets boho. Light, bright and perfect for up to 8 guests. I’m filing those exterior wall slats in my inspiration folder. Federal by McKinley Bungalows.

I’m real estate strolling scrolling in London again. Am I crazy? The property may be amazing but the prices are eye watering. Fancy a Georgian era townhouse with a stylish modern twist slap bang in the Soho area? Do you have a fistful of dollars? Oh well we can dream can’t we.

A heady mix

Posted on Mon, 15 Jul 2019 by midcenturyjo

Faded grandeur, modern furniture, tribal touches, truncated torsos,  a confection of a little girl’s room and a blowsy summer garden. It’s a heady mix. Séguier, Paris 6 by Isabelle Stanislas.

I’m real estate strolling scrolling in the Northern New South Wales “it” holiday town of Byron Bay. It’s stylish and chic but also boho and alternative, the place where Sydney-siders escape their stratospheric real estate market … except that Byron Bay now holds the dubious title of most expensive market in Australia. Today I am sharing a simple beachside getaway (but definitely not beach front), relaxed coastal living for just $3.3 million. Ouch! On the bright side that’s Australian Dollars so overseas readers need not fear because our currency is definitely weak at the moment and I guess you can always rent out the backyard studio on Airbnb to help with the mortgage.

Contemporary and tactile in Brisbane

Posted on Fri, 5 Jul 2019 by midcenturyjo

It’s an interesting mix, moody master bedroom and a tactile, almost organic bathroom in the lightest shade of grey. Inspired by luxurious Greek villas think sinuous shapes offset by angular joinery,  light bouncing off walls, floating drapes, a calm oasis in a hot, hot city.
