Eclectic elegance in España

Posted on Wed, 19 Sep 2018 by midcenturyjo

A total refurbishment of this central Madrid apartment is all about the art of mixing. Mixing styles, periods, materials and colour.  From the crisp white salon with its mid century vibes and turquoise accents to the earthy wicker of the dining room to the dashes of bold pattern throughout, it’s fresh and fabulous, chic and sharp. El Viso by interior architect Belén Ferrándiz.

Fluid stone

Posted on Wed, 19 Sep 2018 by midcenturyjo

French designer Mathieu Lehanneur is a magician. Who else can conjure up liquid marble, ripples in stone? At least that is how it seems. It’s art. It’s design.  Concept versus reality, poetry versus science. No limits. Just let your imagination run away to his marble bedroom in the Hotel de la Monnaie for AD Intérieurs 2017.

Habachy Designs

Posted on Wed, 1 Aug 2018 by KiM

It has been years since we have featured some spaces designed by Michael Habachy (here and here). It appears that in almost 10 years he still remains true to his signature style – as Jo had put it, it’s glamorous and broody, high end and hedonistic, OTT and fab. I would say he has toned things down a bit, and gone a bit less OTT and a bit more elegant, and not quite so dark. In the end it is more liveable and easy on the eye.
