A fine balancing act

Posted on Tue, 26 May 2020 by midcenturyjo

It’s all about balance. A balance between crisp and modern and rustic and weathered. Rough versus smooth. A hint of scandi with a dose of Aussie. Light versus dark. Formally structured and sensuous and tactile. A fine balancing act indeed. Hunters Hill House by Handelsmann + Khaw.

Oh to have a light filled, art filled, three bedroom, muliple reception room, terrace gardened, super stylish Upper East Side apartment. Oh to have a sleek lined, minimalist chic home. Oh to have the wherewithal to afford one! A dream New York apartment by Timothy Brown Studio.

It’s about bespoke details, high style and comfort. About layers of texture and materials and meaning. It’s  about “the creation of spaces that nurture the family and provide a beautiful backdrop for life’s memories to unfold.” Nichols Hills by Oklahoma-based Sara Crooks Design.

If you’re going to San Francisco

Posted on Tue, 12 May 2020 by midcenturyjo

Warm and sophisticated with a tight colour palette of greens, tan and cream with pops of dramatic black this San Francisco house has ample entertaining spaces with low slung furniture to accentuate rather than block the view.  After all if your Russian Hill home looks out to Alcatraz Island then it’s always going to be about the view.

Minimalist detail

Posted on Tue, 12 May 2020 by midcenturyjo

“A period home’s minimalistic redesign and extension focusing on supreme detailing, exquisite materiality and a richly layered palette. The interior architecture celebrates clean geometries and a boldness of form. A restrained use of colour punctuates a monochrome palette while bespoke joinery and selected fixtures show a dedication to craftsmanship.”
