Serene dream

Posted on Thu, 8 Nov 2018 by midcenturyjo

Modernist Italian design meets a listed Victorian building in Notting Hill, London and the result is not a chaotic clash but a beautifully curated, family home by Francesca Oggioni. Key features are the muted palette and natural finishes, the preservation of lovely old features like the stone staircase and the streamlined storage that fades into the spaces allowing that minimalist look devoid of necessary, everyday clutter.

Urban classicism in Roman

Posted on Fri, 2 Nov 2018 by midcenturyjo

Stunning! The view and the apartment. But as much as I’m blown away by the history outside the windows it’s the interior that has me swooning. Think classicism meets contemporary values, new and old balanced just so but with a slight misalignment for the brivido, the frisson, the thrill. The beautiful old bones, the stark beauty of the white walls, the bespoke furniture, the light all create this urban classic by Rome-based architect and designer Stefano Dorata.

 

 

If any of you were questioning the use of lots of colour and pattern in your home, take a lesson from the Burke sisters. Anna and Caroline Burke of Anna Burke Interiors went wild in this Upper East Side duplex, and I adore every square inch. Moss green velvet walls, seagrass rugs, banquettes and more banquettes, murals, grasscloth, the glossiest of gloss walls, polka dots, stripes…….

Laurence Simoncini does light

Posted on Mon, 15 Oct 2018 by midcenturyjo

Laurence Simoncini has moved towards the light. Black still features in her next home, an apartment created from a warren of office space, but more as an accent along with pops of gold. The emphasis is on textures playing off the white walls. Industrial meets vintage meets high Parisian style. Which do you like the dark or the light? Hard choice isn’t it? I think I might just have to take both.

Las 2 Mercedes is a Madrid-based interior design studio founded in 2012 by Mercedes Peralta and Mercedes Valdenebro. Their work is all about warmth and timelessness, personality and pizzazz. Think a mix of contemporary design, mid-century furniture and antiques, understated, elegant and serene.
