Bright in Brighton

Posted on Mon, 9 Jul 2018 by midcenturyjo

I never thought I’d really, really would need a bright orange kitchen in my life. Visions of dubious retro kitchens spring to mind. That is until I saw this bright and zesty bespoke number by Alistair Fleming Design. Now I’m trying to figure out if I need to fit one into my house renovations.

Stalking on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 23 Jun 2018 by midcenturyjo

I’m stalking a confection of a house in Sydney’s Watson Bay. A converted 1920’s Masonic Hall that has undergone a “Frenchification”. So many beautiful glimpses at what has been because unfortunately it has been sold for quite some time. A girl can still dream can’t she? Don’t miss the video for so much more. Link here while it lasts and if you are intertested in what it looked like when it sold in 2015 check out here.

Upstate House

When I first laid eyes on this house by MR Architecture + Decor all I wanted to do was pack my bags, hop a plane and move right in. It’s the Hudson, New York home of the firm’s founding partner David Mann. Intimate, simple yet stylish, a window onto how the designer loves to live. Speaking of windows if the front door is locked when I turn up to claim squatter’s rights I might just scamper through one of those multi-paned Federal windows to gain access.

 

As eclectic and creative as its owner, photographer and film director Cindy Sherman, this East Hampton home by Billy Cotton is funky, fab and free spirited. Another great example of traditional with a twist where the textiles, rugs and wallcoverings are the heroes. Country chic that is unpretentious and comfortable.

The New Old

Posted on Wed, 2 May 2018 by midcenturyjo

Simone Haag “likes to think of a house as a blank page, an empty book – boundless, full of possibilities – a story wanting to be written, a tale waiting to be told.” In the case of this Melbourne house she has penned a best seller. It’s a collaboration between stylish fashion director client and designer, the end result being a sensationally chic and fashion forward house. That living room sends shivers up and down my spine and did you notice the gradation in the dining chairs? Sigh!
