Are you feeling blue?

Posted on Mon, 11 Jun 2018 by midcenturyjo

B-b-b-b-b-blue. Harry Nuriev of Crosby Studios has taken his signature pastels and brass accents and punched them up a notch with a statement royal blue in his own Manhattan apartment. Could you? Would you? Are you feeling blue? I am! Fun, fresh and definitely in your face.

 

Another eclectic location home in London

Posted on Tue, 29 May 2018 by KiM

I have fallen in love with this London location home mostly due to the sheer size of the kitchen (maximum envy here!) but also because of the eclectic vibe throughout. Some bold accent colours, a touch of black, some patterns in a funky sofa and wallpaper…. Via 1st Option Locations.

Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 26 May 2018 by midcenturyjo

It’s like I always say (except not too much lately), if you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it looks great. Today’s workspace is a first for DTI. Part pastel Haussmannian, part post modernist homage meets contemporary bespoke, all with attention to medical precision it’s a plastic surgeon’s practice by French interior designers Agence Véronique Cotrel.

A seamless blend of new and old

Stunning. That’s the word that springs to mind whenever I set eyes on the double height kitchen area in this London home by interior designer Amanda Durham. The renovation and extension in collaboration with Snell David Architects created a coherent family home from what was originally a rabbit warren of disjointed rooms. The new interiors are timeless and stylish, marrying modern and traditional but for me it’s still the kitchen that is the standout, a fabulous hub for a family home.

Stalking on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 19 May 2018 by midcenturyjo

I’m stalking again. Walking down virtual streets, peering through the virtual nets and basically just being a virtual busy body. I love to see how people live even if it is a striped back and tidied up look to make the real estate listing photos just so. Today’s house in the Melbourne suburb of Armadale sports a late 19th century facade but a very modern rear addition and pool. The link to the listing is here while it lasts.
