A jewel box for a jeweller

Posted on Mon, 3 Jun 2024 by midcenturyjo

Designed for a jewellery designer, Montaigne is a 240m² flat by the Uchronia collective. Think straight lines, angles, octagon and trapezoid custom furniture inspired by precious stones and colour, lots and lots of jewel-like colour. This Haussmannian interior in Paris’s 8th arrondissement is a true gem, with every detail meticulously thought out, polished, and crafted.

Working on a Saturday

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 somewhere stylish. The Skin Bar, Narrabeen by The Make Haus.

A tonal terrace

A four-storey townhouse in Dalston re-imagined and transformed into a bold, colourful and bohemian sanctuary. The existing house was divided into two dwellings, a small flat with fronts steps leading down on the lower ground floor and a family maisonette on the upper three floors, accessed up a flight of external stairs. The brief was to combine the two separate dwellings into one home and restore the grand townhouse to its former glory. Zoe and Benedict wanted to change the basement flat into the main kitchen and living space, so that it could open onto the generous garden. They also wanted to keep the original through-lounge on the upper floor as well as providing a main bedroom with en-suite, a family bathroom, and further rooms to be used as bedrooms and study space but able to adapt over time. Early discussions for the new construction elements of the project kept returning to mid-century Los Angeles style and we liked the idea of entering the house on a Brooklyn feel and switching from East Coast to West Coast to discover a brightly lit, mid-century Californian style living space inside.
This renovated home (another one by Bradley Van Der Straeten) is packed with really moody colours and really has such a wonderful energy about it. A very happy place to be.

A vibrant home with harbour views

Posted on Wed, 22 May 2024 by midcenturyjo

A minimalist house was transformed into a home of many moods through considered changes to the floorplan and a warm, witty material palette. The new owners, returned expats and avid entertainers, engaged Sydney-based Studio Johnston to revamp the interiors with an emphasis on practicality, outdoor connection, and colour. The renovation emphasized the harbour view, improved the first-floor living area and redesigned the kitchen as the home’s centrepiece. Two studies were added, and the ground level was reconfigured as a potential apartment for their son. Studio Johnston used colour, texture, and curved lines to enhance functionality and bring life to the interior.

In Crouch End, North London, a young family sought help to enhance their home’s functionality and add colour and warmth. Laura Stephens Interiors redesigned the open-plan ground floor, transforming the middle room with a wood-burning stove, armchairs, a rug, and a warm paint scheme. The adjacent kitchen’s new paint scheme added warmth and character. Large glazed doors in cerulean blue brightened the hallway. Upstairs, the master bedroom featured soft blue and pink tones, luxurious furnishings, and unique repurposed antiques. The family living area and cinema room were made both practical and sophisticated.
