Hudson Home

Posted on Thu, 6 Aug 2020 by midcenturyjo

Home is where the heart is. Home is where our families live and our friends gather, where our memories are made and carefully archived, where our creativity flourishes, where our lives can slow, where we are nourished and renewed. Hudson Home by Brooklyn-based General Assembly.

Colour, colour, colour. For those who think that Australian designers can only do beige I give you The Palm, Woollahra by POCO Designs.Take a mid century vibe, wrap it in a jewel box of bright colours, open the interiors to the outside, sprinkle on the luxe and you’ll never crave beige again.

In my previous post I mentioned I would want la SHED to design my dream home. They created a dream home here, on a large wooded lot located in Sherbrooke, Quebec. Their goal was to preserve as many trees as possible and I loooooove that they created somewhat of a courtyard for the pool area.

Open and honest

“A humble, single level living pavilion on the street side draws on the simplicity of surrounding beach houses, many of which were owner built over the years. Connection to the garden and landscape was imperative to the design. Kangaroos literally inhabit the house. The structural system is exposed and honest. Operable screens allow for the control of privacy and when the whole house is opened up it almost disappears, evoking the social mood of camping.”

Open, honest and laid back. Bendalong Beach House by Madeleine Blanchfield Architects.

An extension at the back of this Bellevue Hill Federation House and the renovation of the home’s bathrooms saw interior design duo Handelsmann + Khaw explore Mediterranean themes, texture or should I say patina and a casual elegance. Think tumbled marble tiles, terrazzo and tadelakt. And then there is the drama of that bathroom overlooking the garden. Beautiful!
