Home and Away

Posted on Mon, 7 Nov 2022 by midcenturyjo

“Sequenced over three levels, this dream-like oasis weaves tangible tales of faraway lands and ancient cultures through eclectic manipulations of materials and styles to convey charismatic reinterpretations of the past.”

It’s fun, fresh, quirky, spirited, confident and trend-setting. It’s mad. It shouldn’t work. It’s a triumph. “Home and Away” by in my opinion the most exciting Australian interior designer Yasmine Saleh Ghoniem of YSG.

Kin House is a lovingly restored (by owners Matt and Gaby Harvey and interior-design studio Barlow & Barlow) 1680 Georgian manor in the Wiltshire countryside, open for private parties, retreats, high times or down time. It has a shell-encrusted grotto, 12 gloriously designed bedrooms and would be an incredible venue for a wedding or an epic party. What a beauty!

Playing on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 5 Nov 2022 by midcenturyjo

Not my usual Working on a Saturday, not the usual commercial building. Today it’s all about playing sport on a Saturday. Cricket in fact.

“A joyous little folly dedicated to the game and all its absurdity. The P.W.C.C exterior is distinctive – a chiselled roof, rigorous battening and weatherboards all hark back to the heroic kiwi sports pavilions of the past.”

Shades of red and green in a Paris apartment

Posted on Fri, 4 Nov 2022 by KiM

This Paris apartment was designed with travel in mind. The inspiration were hotel rooms, luxury train carriages, with a certain degree of luxury and elegance. Shades of red and green were used throughout – not typically a palette I’m drawn to but designer Hugo Toro worked magic here and I adore it. (Photos: Leny Gueta)

Breathing new life

Posted on Thu, 3 Nov 2022 by midcenturyjo

“A renovation of a 1912 Villa to bring it into the 21st Century and make it comfortable for family life (after being a student flat for 25 years). Wall linings were replaced and repainted as was the kitchen, architraves and skirting were reinstated , heating/cooling was installed and the floors were painted.”

Breathing new life into a tired old home. Fresh, contemporary and fun. Further renovations are to come but what a great beginning. Sackville 2019 by Auckland-based Dessein Parke.
