Finding beauty in the imperfect

Posted on Wed, 23 Jun 2021 by midcenturyjo

Sophie Rowell of Côte de Folk Interiors takes a home’s imperfections and makes them shine. No no not in a bad way, in a magical perfectly imperfect way. It’s a celebration and elevation of everyday beauty, of the authentic and individual. This is her own home. Pieces change in and out as she sources more treasure or shares her finds with others. I could be totally happy sitting in that dining room in whatever incarnation. Just need a pot of tea and a friend come to share it with me.

Cerused contemporary

Posted on Wed, 23 Jun 2021 by midcenturyjo

Yes it’s pracitical and beautiful but this contemporary house is taken to the next level by the bespoke joinery. Attention to detail and then just a little bit more. I’m swooning over the cerused oak featured throughout. House M by Cassandra Walker Design.

A villa by the water

Posted on Mon, 21 Jun 2021 by midcenturyjo

“The relationship between the historic building and the new extension is characterised with a change of materiality; from light timbers and translucent glass screens to black terrazzo and steel framed doors to the terrace. The interiors responded to the iconic nature of the building with elegant details that will endure over time.”

We could be in Italy but instead, we’re harbourside in Sydney’s Elizabeth Bay.  An elegant marriage of historic and new, classic yet timeless. By Richards Stanisich.

A beautiful marriage of bespoke and carefully curated pieces in a white on white colour palette. What else could you possibly want in this luxe family home in Toronto, Canada? Why pops of colour of course particularly blushing pink. Classic and contemporary, stylish and sleek Rosedale No. 4 by Ali Budd Interiors.

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.)
