A rural idyll in Normandie

Posted on Mon, 24 May 2021 by midcenturyjo

bucolic /bjuːˈkɒlɪk/ adjective: relating to the pleasant aspects of the countryside and country life.

Let’s run away to this rural idyll. A meandering of rooms, a clash of wallpaper and a Togo sofa hiding from the more traditional furnishings. I’m in love. A private house in Normandie by Tristan Auer.

A restored warehouse in The Hague

Posted on Sun, 23 May 2021 by KiM

Welcome to the jaw-droppingly gorgeous home in The Hague of internationally sought-after contemporary Spanish painter Lita Cabellut. What was a former warehouse/antique store in the 18th century is now an exquisite example of a restore project that was done soooooo right. I am blown away at the beauty of every room. And make sure you pay attention to the kitchen sink! (translated from the article: The old marble basin comes from royal gardens and was originally used to clean and wash the roses with which the palace bouquets would later be made).

Sometimes I think I should be jealous. These Parisian pads are just too chic, too stylish, too fabulous. I really should be jealous but they’re soooooo good I don’t have the time to indulge in a little green-eyed envy. I’m too busy pinning all the inspiration.

A little vacation to a cottage as beautiful and soothing and easy on the eye as this one would be a dream. This neutral stone & thatched roof cottage in The Cotswolds is all wood and white and sisal and stone and wicker and linen/cotton….it’s heaven. Available as a location home via Shoot Factory.

Sophisticated seaside living

Posted on Wed, 12 May 2021 by midcenturyjo

“With incredible views towards the southern wild ocean and northern views to the enclosed and stunning pool lawn and flourishing vegetable garden, we wanted to create an ‘Australian’ villa in the landscape by the sea. Internally, we aspired to creating spaces rather than surface, creating atmosphere rather than rooms; creating both a generosity of spirit and serenity as a background for happy family life.”

As stunning as its rugged setting this sophisticated contemporary beach house is definitely no shack with its expansive views through large glass windows, open plan living and a sheltered oasis of a garden behind. Flinders House by Melbourne-based Susi Leeton.
