Markham Roberts

Posted on Thu, 18 Oct 2018 by KiM

Since it has been about a decade since we featured some of the glorious spaces of iconic New York designer Markham Roberts, I thought it was time for a re-visit. A mix of traditional, contemporary and rustic yet always elegant and timeless.

Alexandra and Michael Misczynski of Atelier AM take elegance and glamour to a whole other level. Every time I come across one of their projects my heart melts. This one may be my favourite. I can’t even get beyond the first photo of the dining room.

For more check out this Manhattan apartment, this Santa Fe villa and this L.A. home.

The softest shade of green

Posted on Thu, 27 Sep 2018 by midcenturyjo

There’s something about that green. Cool, calming, refreshing like a dip in the ocean or a drop in the temperature on a hot, hot day.  Add the gold accents, the hint of lucite and pattern repeat of lattice and I find myself scheming a way to include a small garden room in my own home.

Eclectic elegance in España

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.

Fluid stone

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.
