Burnt toffee

Posted on Tue, 15 Jun 2021 by midcenturyjo

Sophisticated and moody. Masculine and beautifully curated. Mature yet at times quirky. It’s like burnt toffee, complex yet bittersweet. Highland by Memphis, Tennessee based Sean Anderson Design. (Kim has followed Sean’s career for many years. You can see her posts here.)

A dark and modern waterfront weekend home

Posted on Wed, 5 May 2021 by KiM

Dartk and moody, modern and minimalist. Blurring the lines between outdoors and indoors. This weekend home is designed to maximise water views while accommodating a low maintenance, single story layout. The spaces within the house are arranged around a central courtyard which not only acts as a physical separation between the guest wing and public areas but allows views of the water for every room. All of the building materials, charred wood siding, zinc metal and exposed concrete, require little maintenance and age gracefully over time. These materials reflect the owner’s desire for a home that will blend within the landscape and provide a relaxing retreat from the city. Architect: Adam Jordan. Photos: Eric Petschek.

Sean Anderson always makes my heart skip a beat. His ability to create such dynamic spaces with a neutral colour palette, lots of textures like linen and raw wood and mixing old and new furnishings is so impressive. This Tennessee home is everything. (Architect: David Anderson, Photographer: Rett Peek)

A modern tree house

Posted on Mon, 5 Apr 2021 by KiM

I may be obsessed as of late with centuries old homes but on the other, completely opposing hand a simple, modern home with a black exterior and concrete floors is something I will always be drawn to. This home is giving me life and is GORGEOUS inside and out. For cityhomeCOLLECTIVE owner Cody’s Derrick’s personal residence, we worked with Sparano & Mooney Architecture and builders Sausage Space to create a “best of both worlds” concept: the goal was to bridge the gap between condo/loft living and a ground-level home that included yard space and room to grow. As lead designer on the project, Cody worked collaboratively with Sparano & Mooney to ensure that a simple but imaginative layout served as the blueprint for a plethora of natural materials and a focus on the elements (water being the feature at the center of the home’s footprint). Local craftsmen were hired wherever possible (in this case, for railings, cabinets, kitchen island, custom dining table, custom pigmented concrete, etc). For the interior design, we focused on a layered approach–from salvaged chandeliers and chairs to plants, books, art, etc.–that would add to the warmth of the open space and balance the newness of the project.

Modern dark

Oh girl the drama! Dark and moody. Wallpaper on the ceiling. Darkest green and pops of blue. Then there’s the kitchen. Another standout home by Crystal Sinclair Designs. Can’t get enough.
