Earthy and refined

“Drawing upon the site’s architectural period and surrounding bushland, Wahroonga House is an example of mid-century modern design, referencing the warmth and playfulness of Palm Springs balanced with a laid-back sense of sophistication.”

Add an earthy colour palette of greens and browns inspired by the surrounding bushland and a play on geometric curves the result is relaxed yet refined. Wahroonga House by Tom Mark Henry.

Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 16 Jan 2021 by midcenturyjo

It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s super stylish. KOHE MEETING by Claude Cartier.

This house gives me LIFE. Over on my Instagram account I was recently lamenting about the bits of white I had going on in my house. (Particularly ceilings and trim) And this baffled the masses. This Arts and Crafts family home in North London designed by Studio Duggan is a PERFECT example of a home that looks incredible with colour. Ceilings and trim included! The colours used here are absolutely stunning. The lime paint, terrazzo floor, tile and cane accents are beautiful touches.

Waking up in Palm Springs

Posted on Thu, 14 Jan 2021 by midcenturyjo

In Australia, we have quarantine hotels where returning citizens must stay isolated for 14 days to ensure the virus doesn’t escape into the community. We are very, very lucky to have extremely low and in most cases, no community spread. Unfortunately, none of our quarantine rooms looks anything like this “Waking up in Palm Springs” suite by Patricia Bustos. If only! Bright, fun, great vibes and positive energy.

Colour in the kitchen

Still hanging out in other people’s kitchens even if it is only virtually. These days I’m looking for more colour in my life … and my interiors. Absolutely loving these two kitchens by Plain English. Blue and green or pink with gree. Tough choice. Which one is your favourite?
