Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 13 Jul 2019 by midcenturyjo

You know what I’m going to say don’t you? If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend then it helps, oh it certainly helps, if it’s somewhere stylish. The Horse  in Manly, Sydney (oh the watches and leather goods!) by Triibe.

 

Backyard dreams by Daniel Shea

Posted on Tue, 2 Jul 2019 by KiM

My summer will be consumed with landscaping tasks which has me both excited and terrified (given my lack of experience in this area). The inspiration I have been finding online has been incredibly helpful, and one such source is Daniel Shea, an award-winning garden designer from Hertfordshire, England.  Mostly modern outdoor spaces but not at all minimalist and I love that his plantings are kept a bit wild. Bring on summer!

Parisian perfection

Posted on Mon, 20 May 2019 by midcenturyjo

Let’s tick off our ultimate apartment check list. Large rooms with exposed timber beams and steel framed windows. Killer art collection. Pierre Jeanneret chairs. Expansive terrazzo floors and for added impact a monolithic terrazzo kitchen island. Have we forgotten anything? Oh yes! A Paris address. Rue Galilée by Bernard Dubois Architects

I’m still real estate hunting in the Melbourne suburb of Brunswick. The simple Edwardian facade allows glimpses of a two storey modern extension by Preston Lane Architects. Highlights include streamlined open plan living and a seamless flow from inside to out with great al fresco living in a low maintenance garden. Link here while it lasts.

Chasing the dream – the warehouse

Posted on Tue, 14 May 2019 by midcenturyjo

I’m chasing the dream in the Melbourne suburb of Brunswick where a warehouse conversion with separate studio at the rear has caught my eye. The unimposing gray facade provides no clues as to the industrial meets textural, monochrome with a hint of coastal interior. Shouldn’t work you’d think but what could have been a stark interior is warm and welcoming. Bonus is if I buy it you can come visit and stay in the cute as a button studio. Link here while it lasts.
