A glamorous yet family friendly home

Posted on Fri, 14 Jun 2019 by KiM

A newly built home loaded with patterns (I count 7 wallpapers!), colours and lots of glamorous touches create max personality. Hats off to Missouri-based designer Jessie D. Miller for keeping these spaces dramatic yet family friendly as the homeowners have 2 kids and 2 bulldogs.

An owner-architect’s renovation has transformed this hallmark Victorian terrace into a striking contemporary retreat of exquisite style and design sophistication.” Real estate speak for a graphic black and white home that packs a punch within its small footprint. Favourite bits? The kitchen and the courtyard. Link here while it lasts.

Sean Anderson goes dark

Memphis interior designer Sean Anderson (from this past feature, and this one) has serious skills when it comes to creating white, neutral, naturally textured spaces, but it seems he can also nail dark spaces like nobody’s business. The secret ingredient in his case is keeping the floors bright and white. The sunlight bounces off of them and adds dimension, while evading the cave-like nature of having really dark walls. GORG!!!

Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 1 Jun 2019 by midcenturyjo

OK, OK you all know my weekend mantra. If you have to drag yourself into work on a Saturday it helps if it’s somewhere super stylish. And the ultimate in super cool workplaces? Why a designer’s own work digs. Loving Chicago-based PROjECT‘s office space. Thanks Kim for the introduction to their work.

Dark and light, chic and relaxed

Posted on Thu, 30 May 2019 by midcenturyjo

A timeless palette of black and white complimented by a neutral materials scheme of stone, wood and tile. Bright and serene, moody yet calm the interiors of this Bridgehampton family home by  Timothy Godbold is so classic, so sophisticated and yet so casual and inclusive. A home of two halves? No it’s a resolution of the chic and the relaxed.
