Modern living in a thatched cottage

Posted on Tue, 12 Nov 2019 by midcenturyjo

Such a well considered balance. All chocolate box thatched cottage on the outside. All modern living expectations on the inside. Icing on the cake? More than enough historical character internally preserved to keep you smiling sweetly. Gloucestershire Cottage by Sarah Delaney Design.

Feminine + vintage in a home in Stockholm

Posted on Sun, 10 Nov 2019 by KiM

I spotted this home on Residence Magazine and immediately fell in love. The vintage, feminine, time-worn vibe of this home is the perfect dose of Sunday eye candy. Let this be a reminder to always look at the back of canvas paintings. You never know what you might find.

Nantucket nuances

Posted on Fri, 8 Nov 2019 by midcenturyjo

TGIF! Time to getaway from the rat race. Perhaps an island escape. Time to day dream about owning a home like this Nantucket beauty by San Francisco based interior designer Katie Martinez. Her work is relaxed, classic, natural. No fuss, no cliché just summer house simplicity and style.

At the end of the garden

Posted on Fri, 11 Oct 2019 by midcenturyjo

Perhaps I should have called this post “Up on the roof”. Either way I’m loving this small, urban courtyard garden with studio/pool house at the end, entertaining next to the house and a pool in between. The green roof not only improves the thermal qualities of the studio, it also makes the garden appear bigger while improving the view from the master bedroom. No more looking down on an ugly roof.

Old and new

Posted on Fri, 11 Oct 2019 by midcenturyjo

I love the mix of old and new, of antique with mid century classic, heavy Victorian mahogany furniture with Scandinavian influences, all wrapped up in a neutral colour palette with metallic accents. This bedroom, by Melbourne-based Sisällä, was part of Como By Design, a show house in a heritage listed South Yarra mansion (hence all changes had to be non invasive and reversible). My friends will tell you I have been going on and on for a couple of years now about “bringing back the brown”, of embracing the heavy dark wooden antique pieces we have been shunning for years. They laughed at me years ago when I told them the next big thing would be the 80s and they’re not laughing now. With  Sisällä showing the way perhaps they’ll all be clamouring for a big old brown wardrobe soon.
