Ebony and Ivory

Posted on Thu, 22 Apr 2021 by midcenturyjo

The designer calls the project “Ebony and Ivory”. I call it a sophisticated, contemporary home with not only a play on black and white but texture and the clean lines of modern design.  By Chicago-based interior design firm SKIN.

Same block different apartment

Posted on Tue, 20 Apr 2021 by midcenturyjo

It’s the same glass factory conversion as Friday and the same designers. It’s the same Belgian aesthetic but a totally different apartment. Admittedly the overall space is smaller but the sense of style is just as big. By Æ Studio.

Belgian beauty

Posted on Fri, 16 Apr 2021 by midcenturyjo

“A former glass factory was transformed into single family homes … The project started from a bare construction. The idea was to design the entire interior in an industrial cosy natural way. The use of chalk, concrete, steel windows, marbles, oak floorings and linen curtains. To have an energy neutral building had never an effect on the interior but is a great plus. This project is a perfect example of an added value in a beautiful collaboration between client and interior architect.”

It’s a masterclass in modern Belgian design. The spare beauty, the use of grey, the simple material palette. DS Apartment in Gent by Æ Studio.

A penthouse getaway in Tulum

Posted on Fri, 16 Apr 2021 by midcenturyjo

It’s Friday so it must be time for a virtual weekend getaway. In this daydream we’ve reached the new normal, we’re vaccinated and we’re in Tulum, Mexico. I’m not sure how we can fit the thousands and thousands of you in this apartment but hey it’s a daydream. We’ll make it work. First dibs on the bedroom with the dark bathroom! Penthouse Panopea in Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico. Book via Airbnb.

“We designed this model apartment for The Belnord, a historic luxury residential building on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. The building’s rich past influenced the mix of old and new in the 4-bedroom space. Customized furnishings and fixtures, along with antique and vintage pieces, bring the character of the spaces to life.”

The apartment may be in the Big Apple but the look is la française. The Belnord by New York-based Anna Karlin who not only designs furniture and lighting but everything from digital and print to interiors and set design.
