Neutral nirvana

Posted on Fri, 16 Nov 2018 by midcenturyjo

Perched high on the hill above the harbour in Gaeta in the Lazio region of Italy is a neutral nirvana. A monochromatic palette with the attention on textural contrast and natural finishes is cool and chic. Smooth sophistication by Rome-based architect and designer Stefano Dorata.

More from Timothy Godbold

Posted on Wed, 14 Nov 2018 by midcenturyjo

A sprawling Bridgehampton house and the stylish curation of designer Timothy Godbold translates to a traditional vernacular mixed with clean modern lines, vintage with high end, natural materials, effortless sophistication and a casual summertime chic. It’s my Hamptons dream not some clichéd nightmare. (You can see my previous post on Timothy’s work here.)

 

 

Stalking on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 10 Nov 2018 by midcenturyjo

I’m stalking in the Melbourne suburb of Elsternwick, a Victorian-era residence that has been renovated and extended. The light grey rendered facade gives just a hint of the modern house behind the historic walls. Open plan living, huge walls of glass and of course that inside outside living that Australians crave in their homes. Link here while it lasts.

Serene dream

Posted on Thu, 8 Nov 2018 by midcenturyjo

Modernist Italian design meets a listed Victorian building in Notting Hill, London and the result is not a chaotic clash but a beautifully curated, family home by Francesca Oggioni. Key features are the muted palette and natural finishes, the preservation of lovely old features like the stone staircase and the streamlined storage that fades into the spaces allowing that minimalist look devoid of necessary, everyday clutter.

Urban classicism in Roman

Posted on Fri, 2 Nov 2018 by midcenturyjo

Stunning! The view and the apartment. But as much as I’m blown away by the history outside the windows it’s the interior that has me swooning. Think classicism meets contemporary values, new and old balanced just so but with a slight misalignment for the brivido, the frisson, the thrill. The beautiful old bones, the stark beauty of the white walls, the bespoke furniture, the light all create this urban classic by Rome-based architect and designer Stefano Dorata.
