Rich earth

Posted on Fri, 26 Nov 2021 by midcenturyjo

“We were commissioned to re-imagine the informal living room, entrance hall and the master bedroom. Taking cues from the colour palette defined by the client we assembled a series of statement pieces that created unexpected moments, like the oversized Sammode Studio lamp and Dedar wallpapered ceiling. The unique mix of vintage, pre-owned and new pieces also includes a restored Italian book case, a Florence Knoll credenza and the Italian Gronda Mirror/Coat Racks. Despite working with an earthy palette, we succeeded in creating a richly textured series of spaces that are sophisticated yet accessible.”

Earthy and rich, unexpected and inspiring. Harking to the past and definitely ahead of the curve.  An atmospheric reworking of old spaces. What else would you expect from Melbourne’s style maven Simone Haag?

Dark + grey drama

Posted on Fri, 22 Oct 2021 by KiM

I have always had a love for dark and dramatic interiors and find that the bright/warm/neutral trend seems to overwhelmingly be the norm these days. So hats off to Brianne Bishop Design for this modern, moody, grey, dramatic design for a new build in Bucktown, Chicago. Edgy and fabulous.

English vibes for a newly built home in Austin

Posted on Thu, 30 Sep 2021 by KiM

One thing I absolutely detest in this city is how all new builds are designed to look modern regardless of the neighbourhood and surrounding architecture. I love that this home is a new build and was designed to look like an English village, despite being located in Austin, Texas. And the result is bright (except the kitchen – which is WOW) and inviting and beautiful inside and out. Designed by Fern Santini.

A luxury music-themed home in Austin

Posted on Fri, 24 Sep 2021 by KiM

Austin in Stereo is a 7,300 sq ft, 4 bedroom home in West Austin where nearly every room of the house was designed by Fern Santini with a unique art or music-themed element. A bar, turntable, Sonos speakers, signed photos of music legends, Woodstock wallpaper, lots of dark walls and graphic patterns make this a really stylin’ and party-ready home.

Dark and moody vintage heaven

Posted on Tue, 31 Aug 2021 by KiM

My love of all things dark. moody and full of texture and patina with lots of vintage will never ever waiver. And why my love of the style of designer Sean Anderson will also never waiver. When he goes dark he does it so incredibly well, and unlike any other designer I know. This home in Tennessee is packed with character and drama and I could stare at these beautiful spaces for hours.
