Serene in Martha’s Vineyard

Posted on Mon, 15 Aug 2022 by midcenturyjo

“This beautiful home set in a scenic wooded area in Edgartown on Martha’s Vineyard was designed with the intent of purposeful simplicity. From early on in the design process, our clients expressed the desire for their home to evoke a sense of serenity – a place they could visit with family and friends to reset from their active suburban lives. We focused on clean forms, simple, yet impactful details, and a calming, neutral, textural palette to design a home that would feel both grounding and rejuvenating for a busy young family.”

A 15th century château in Romorantin, France

Posted on Sun, 14 Aug 2022 by KiM

Built at the end of the 15th century by architect Jacques de Persigny for Lord Philippe du Moulin as a reward for having saved the life of King Charles VIII during the Battle of Fornoue in 1495, this castle located on almost 100 acres has a quadriform plan, surrounded by a moat and flanked by circular towers at each of its corners. It consists of two buildings, the dwelling (420sqm over 5 stories) and the manor house, which are accessed by a drawbridge, now dormant, defended by an entrance gatehouse with a postern and flanked by two towers. The outbuildings face the entrance châtelet and form a U-shaped courtyard. They comprise of a 3 bedroom caretaker’s cottage, a house known as the “vegetable garden” built of bricks under tiles, comprising various rooms for storing equipment, vegetable store and garage with an attic above, and a former stables with 6 stalls and a garage that could house several cars, with 9 bedrooms above. There is also a laundry building and an orangery.
A castle completely surrounded by a moat?! I can’t even begin to wonder how magical owning this would be… For sale for 1,976,000 € via Cabinet Le Nail.

A renovated 1895 home in Denmark

Posted on Fri, 12 Aug 2022 by KiM

When Pernille Lind Studio was engaged by the client, references to English country charm and colonial details led our initial discussions, and a desire to preserve the house’s traditional style became clear. We then aimed to enhance the spaces with modern bohemian luxury. The result is a sensual and layered interior scheme, where meticulous attention to joinery details, materiality and proportion compliments the carefully selected furniture and antique pieces. A colour scheme of dusty dark green, saturated yellow, blues and cream weave the rooms together across the floors. Throughout the process we worked closely with the client to balance the traditional with the modern, carefully curating their own collectables to ensure their personalities radiate through this unique home.

Not sure what I love more about this home – the warm earthy colours or that black and cream striped sofa!

The Hut

Posted on Thu, 11 Aug 2022 by midcenturyjo

I was daydreaming about a perfect getaway, a bolt hole from the city chaos when I found this 600-square-foot cedar-clad hut built sustainably off-grid by Greg Dutton, cofounder of Midland Architecture on his parent’s farm in Ohio. Think Scandi minimalism meets country cabin. A stylish getaway sitting gently in its surrounds.

A country home in Belgium

Stately in a classically beautiful way. A new home in the countryside by Belgian architect Bernard De Clerck that you would never guess from the exterior nor the interior that it is a new home. And a home to treasure for centuries to come.
