Colour, pattern, textiles, flea market finds and carefully curated antiques. Everything considered but nothing “precious” … except the experience. The place, the memories, the lifestyle. Family and friends, the smell of the sea and a home that holds relevance to the owners. Cape Ann Summer House by Reath Design.

A preserved and renovated 1920s Tudor

Posted on Thu, 25 May 2023 by KiM

There’s something so charming, stately and old-world about Tudor homes that I just can’t get enough. This stunner in Dallas was carefully restored and updated and has such incredible features inside and out. I am in love with every single detail. Hats off to Sees Design and Maestri Studio for really doing this wonderful home justice. Photos: Studio-Woodstock & Jenifer McNeil Baker.

An interior inspired by the exterior

Taking advantage of Southern California’s ideal weather and lush gardens by bringing those vibes inside in this redesigned home by Peter Dunham. There’s a sense of elegance but casual at the same time. And I am smitten with the little potting shed space that was created under the poolhouse stairs. Photos: Sam Frost. Architect: Forest Studio.

A harmonious gallery meets conservation home. The design has a base of sophisticated neutrality layered with richness and over-scaled sculptural elements. We delivered an understated sense of drama, from the spatial layout to the furniture design, exuding confidence with unexpected proportions. A blend of feminine curves contrast with the majestic yet masculine structure of the rooms, harmonising the journey throughout.
I looooooove this home sooooooo much. All the original details of an older home that make it incredibly special, paired with some beautiful paint colours and modern and furnishings that give it so much drama. My favourite combo of old and new. Modern and traditional. Kenilworth residence designed by Kingston Lafferty Design. Photos: Ruth Maria Murphy

Moody in Murcia

Posted on Thu, 18 May 2023 by midcenturyjo

The structure of this single-family house in the Region of Murcia in Spain was built before Manuel García took over to create the moody and modern interiors.

“The aim is to present an eminently horizontal home, very compact and material, with cladding executed with care and detail. A succession of planes that are overlapped reminds of strata layers.”

The small plot was designed for enjoyment and easy maintenance. Due to the climate of the area, the ground floor is open to the outside to take advantage of the mild winters and the abundant sunny days. On the upper floor, the bedrooms open onto the uncovered terrace that surrounds this level. The continuation of materials from the outside to the interior provides the common link.
