Casual elegance

Posted on Thu, 13 Jul 2017 by midcenturyjo

Timeless and well-edited, warm and functional with a beautiful muted colour palette, the standout feature of this house by Dana Wolter Interiors to me is the rich and tactile layering of the textiles. It’s stylish and elegant yet casual and comfortable like a fine cashmere sweater.

Liljencrantz Design

Carefully and beautifully curated rooms that are minimalist but not at all sterile. Subtle variations in colour and texture. Elegant and intentional. The hallmark of great Scandinavian design and the signature of Stockholm-based Liljencrantz Design.

In another life

Posted on Mon, 3 Apr 2017 by midcenturyjo

In another life I live in this fabulous house in Laurel Canyon, Los Angeles. In another life that imposing living room with its Hans Wegner chaise and Serge Mouille lighting is mine. The chandeliers, the vintage finds, the deeply moody wood panelled den, the extravagant bathroom and that garden room, oh that garden room. In real life it belongs to Brigette Romanek who, along with Estee Stanley, is the creative force behind Hancock Design.

A designer’s family home

Posted on Tue, 8 Nov 2016 by midcenturyjo

Can a family home be seriously sexy? It can if it belongs to interior designer and owner of interiors boutique Pieces, Lee Kleinhelter. Oh my! Sleek contemporary lines with more than a nod to its historical suburb and all with the glamorous, sophisticated vintage vibe that Atlanta, Georgia based Kleinhelter does so well.

Lavishly French

Posted on Wed, 28 Sep 2016 by KiM

Essentially the opposite of my last post which was modern and minimalist, this home is about as grand, lavish and French as it gets! The French Rooms is available as a location space through lordshippark.com and is two rooms occupying the reception floor of an imposing Victorian villa. Furnished with the finest French antiques, opulent fabrics and exquisite treasures, it’s not exactly decor I would want to live with 24/7 but I sure would love a weekend visit – without the herd of cats!
