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.

 

We have featured several projects of London-based architecture and design firm LLI Design (here, here, here and here) and they recently sent over photos of one of their recent refurbishment projects. With before and after photos! It is a 3 story Victorian townhouse in Highgate and here are some details: Our clients wanted to create a warm, comfortable home with modern touches. Although the house was in reasonable condition, the joinery and fittings throughout the house were dated, had been well used and looked tired. Many of the period features had been stripped out and those that remained had not been maximised. The house lacked character and personality although it benefited from ‘good bones’, nicely proportioned rooms, a delightful garden and a handsome exterior. The brief was to create a warm, comfortable and welcoming home referencing and emphasising the house’s Victorian past as well as adding more contemporary elements to the scheme. I looooove the result. The attention to detail while maintaining the original character of the home is everything.

Rosy in Rose Bay

Let the joy of colour continue with another glorious house by Sydney interior designer Briony Fitzgerald. Perhaps just a touch more restrained than the last but bright pink front door? I’m inspired.

Sometimes it’s all about the glorious cacophony of colour. Pink and green and blue and yellow. A joyful celebration of the “non” monochromatic by Briony Fitzgerald Design. Don’t you just love it!
