The Elegant Abode

Posted on Wed, 29 Aug 2012 by KiM

I’m loving the portfolio of design firm The Elegant Abode (Ariana Villalta and Ali Vanderpool). Soft colours, comfortable and liveable spaces that just get better as time goes on. Perfect for a Wednesday afternoon.

David Hicks and a big juicy website

Posted on Tue, 5 Oct 2010 by midcenturyjo

The one thing better than an amazing portfolio from one of Australia’s top interior designers? A website that is so luscious and large format that the it does justice to the designs! It is a couple of years now since I first featured David Hicks‘ work on Desire to Inspire (young über talented Aussie not to be confused by the iconic and long passed British designer of the same name). A recent revisit and I was rewarded with such a feast for the eyes. The website is exquisite. Designers out there take note. Big and bold is best when it comes to showcasing your wares. I’ve included some shots I have used in the previous post because I just had to. I love them so much. Don’t just stay here though. Click on over to David’s website for an even better experience.

The style hunter’s studio

Posted on Wed, 20 Jan 2010 by midcenturyjo

Imagine creating in a studio space such as this. Everywhere you look there is something beautiful, something quirky. Architectural details to die for, high high ceilings, a herringbone floor and a clear light streaming in. It’s the stuff of dreams and it’s also where Lázaro Rosa-Violán and his team at Contemporain create dreams for their clients. Sigh!

Decadence

Posted on Mon, 11 Jan 2010 by midcenturyjo

Sensual, sultry and just a little wicked in a very grown up way. New work from Atlanta interior designer Michael Habachy. (See our previous post here.) It’s glamorous and broody, high end and hedonistic, OTT and fab. Michael has shared photos from a Buenos Aires’ bachelor pad, his Holiday House master bath and wardrobes and Atlanta nightclub AURUM. His new website is a visual treat with full screen images and sensuous sounds.
