Stalking a cool dude’s pad

Posted on Thu, 2 Aug 2012 by midcenturyjo

Once upon a time there was a cool dude ( I’m making this up as I go along so I hope he is cool) who took a warehouse space and made it his own. Its first incarnation was as a dark and pseudo dingy but über stylish man cave. The cool dude wrote some copy, snapped some pics and submitted it to Apartment Therapy. It went down a treat with the AT crowd as did his mix of self deprecating humour and grandiose ideas. Follow the link and you can see why or if you are lazy scroll down and you’ll get the idea.

Fast forward 3 years and I’m real estate stalking as is my daily want. Oh look! Sexy warehouse apartment say I. Bookmark. Move on. Email drops into my inbox from the cool dude who owns said sexy apartment. Serendipity. Synchonicity. Weird co-incidence. Did I know it was for sale? Hell yes and I would buy it in a flash if I didn’t live in another state, have bad knees and find ladders to mezzanines just a little beyond me at my advancing years. Damn but it’s hot and the position in Surry Hills in Sydney couldn’t be better. AND the dark and über stylishly dingy man cave has grown up. A light, bright and seriously sexy inner city pad. Wonder if the owner has got better with age too? Link here while it lasts.

Black and white

Back in May I featured the home of interior designer from Poland Lucyna Kolodziejska. She emailed with some photos of a design project of hers that I adore. Some details: this flat I have designed for my client Edyta i Rafal. They have also 1 year old kid – Borys. I designed this about 1,5 year ago. Two bathrooms – one with shower, 3 bedrooms and living room with kitchen. All in black and white. Mirror in master bedroom is my project. The posters is from polish designers. Big MK it is decorating elements, doesn’t mean anything. In bathroom with shower we have photo from Polish seaside. Old 100 year old table in dining with Masters by Kartell – i like these chairs. I am a HUGE fan of black and white decor so this home is really doing it for me. In a big way. With SWEET photos. (photos, design)

Jordan Carlyle – more goodies

Here are more goodies care of Jordan Carlyle that are sure to please if post #1 got you all hot and bothered. This first set of photos are I believe from Jordan’s old apartment. LOVE the artwork, despite it being a serious boob-fest, and the sophisticated vibe. Following that is an apartment on West 21st St. that is a little less glam but has Jordan’s signature HOT style.

Night and day

I’ll start this post by saying that I would happily move into Les Interieurs‘ studio in Newport Beach and blissfully live amongst the stock. I adore Pamela Makin’s work.  Remember this…

from this post? I didn’t think it could get any better. Well it has. New work from Les Interieurs. I think of it as night and day. Black, white and natural. Tribal, timber and art and artifact. It’s just perfect. The homes today are moody and black or atmospheric and naturally neutral… or both. Perfect.

And here’s why I want to most into Les Interieurs’ workspace and studio. Sigh.
