Neutral sophistication

Posted on Thu, 7 Oct 2021 by midcenturyjo

A restrained colour palette, refined aesthetic and attention to detail means the rooms in this Cheviot Hills by L.A.-based Studio Life/Style are not only beautifully curated they express a timeless luxury, both cosy and sophisticated.

Colour and daring

Posted on Wed, 29 Sep 2021 by midcenturyjo

Giancarlo Valle of the eponymous Studio Giancarlo Valle is arguably one of our favourite designers. A strong design aesthetic, an assured use of colour, a wonderful sense of light and shade, space and void. This Soho Townhouse has been taken from bland and boring new build to a home full of colour and character, style and daring.

Solid as stone

Posted on Mon, 27 Sep 2021 by midcenturyjo

“The original Stone House was built in 1780 and was updated with a second structure in 1877. The addition and multiple renovations left the house with layers of finishes and a memory of how the home accommodated people’s needs through time. Our sensitive approach recognized that we are one piece in the building’s long life. While there was a drastic reorganization of the interior spaces, we took care to respect the building’s thick stone structure.”

I love the thought of this renovation being just one piece of the building’s long life. To me a good renovation is all about respect. Retaining important features and reinstating the lost while carefully creating a home for modern living. This 19th century stone house outside Callicoon, New York is a triumph by Brooklyn-based General Assembly.

Forest Estate

Posted on Thu, 23 Sep 2021 by midcenturyjo

An oasis of calm in the party, party, party atmosphere of Ibiza. Restrained in it colour and material palette, moody and minimalist. Smooth, clean lined with break outs of texture. Ah the luxury of living this lean. Forest Estate by Hollie Bowden.

A Paris apartment

Posted on Thu, 23 Sep 2021 by midcenturyjo

Up under the eaves with it’s old architectural bones on display is a light, bright Parisian apartment with a modern vibe. Think pops of vibrant blue plucked from a painting, a galley kitchen with stunning stone and storage, storage everywhere. Contemporary French living by Atelier DAAA.
