MMS House

Posted on Fri, 26 Oct 2018 by KiM

The design of this São Paulo home by Pascali Semerdjian is about simplicity, comfort and a desire to stimulate social interactions. It maximizes light, comfort, ventilation and the outdoors. One creative feature to note is how the brick facade appears to decompose near the roofline. I am also a fan of the beautiful reclaimed wood floor and the lush backyard garden.

Stalking a designer’s home

Posted on Fri, 5 Oct 2018 by midcenturyjo

I’m stalking an unassuming Art Deco home in the Melbourne suburb of Elsternwick. Unassuming from the outside that is. The interiors have be transformed by interior designer Georgia Ezra into a Moroccan meets boho home packed with style and personality. Link here while it lasts.

This industrial loft-y home in Montreal’s Mount Royal neighbourhood is the home and workspace of architect Natalie Dionne and her family. It’s brilliant U-shaped design allows the urban environment to be blocked off and for the outdoors to be enjoyed in peace. I love courtyards!!  And with lots of sliding and garage-style doors, it brings the outside right in. In this climate, this is a unique feature that makes this a really special home.


Wicker Park loft

Oh how I love some loft eye candy! This one by Chicago interior designer Anthony Michael is really eclectic and a whole lot of fun. A distinctive global vibe is evident throughout this glorious loft which adds a lot of warmth to the mostly-exposed-brick space, and painting some of the brick out in white makes it brighter and less industrial. Even the motorcycle parked within the loft works 🙂 (More of his work here and here)

Still no internet at home. Still relying on my phone. Still making spelling mistdkes because of my fat fingers. Still in love with everything that Workstead designs. Woven rattan … swoon.
