An 18th-century New York farmhouse

Posted on Wed, 28 Sep 2022 by midcenturyjo

“ERA’s interventions carefully preserved and highlighted original and historic features including the 200 year old wood beams in the dining room and a sleeping porch turned shower room, while contrasting the historic with modern finishes, furnishings and amenities. The house is now filled with warm colors, rich wood floors and has been transformed into a comfortable and unique family estate.”

An 18th-century New York farmhouse that was tactfully restored with care and consideration by Elizabeth Roberts Architects. May I just say that the sleeping porch to bathroom conversation is stunning? Country perfection.

A Hudson farmhouse

Posted on Tue, 27 Sep 2022 by KiM

Our design strategy centered on deferring to some of the important rustic elements while introducing color and pattern and emphasizing handmade materials. In collaboration with our client, we selected and procured all finishes and furnishings, including vintage lighting and furniture to pair with modern classics and custom designs. Intricate patterns and bursts of color were concentrated within some of the smaller spaces to allow the larger areas to act as a neutral foreground to the stunning views and gardens surrounding the property. The clients wanted to highlight a collection of artifacts from their travels, so these were creatively worked into the program.

Sanctuary in the city

Posted on Mon, 26 Sep 2022 by midcenturyjo

“When we enter a space we are confronted by an array of elements that ultimately shape our comfort levels. We are met with a feeling and a response to the visual that surrounds us.”

This Deepdene home by Melbourne-based Studio Ezra is a sanctuary in the city. With a limited colour palette, it is an exploration of materials and textures, a celebration of the senses.

Sophisticated living on Long Island

Posted on Mon, 26 Sep 2022 by midcenturyjo

Things are not always as they seem. A classic white-clad Hamptons exterior and inside a sophisticated urban home. Just like the two halves of interior desiner Timothy Godbold. Aussie born now Long Island-based with not only the creator of high-end design but also an author of military style in fashion. It seems that opposites attract and it results in eye-catching liveable luxury.

Sarah Fortescue

After perusing the portfolio of interior and textile designer Sarah Fortescue it quickly becomes evident that fabrics, patterns and colours are quintessential to her work.
Sarah was brought up between Cornwall and South Africa, surrounded by big open spaces and beautiful wildlife. The natural world and cultures of the world have always been the inspiration for her Interior & Product Design. Living in South Africa and Hong Kong Sarah explored exotic parts of the world where she could source textiles and develop her ideas for her interiors and home accessories. Her sense of colour and how she uses it to create harmonious interior spaces is where the true talent lies. We use the world and its cultures as our sourcing pot for inspiration and textile sourcing, but it’s here at home in Cornwall where our team of talented craftsman lovingly create our beautiful products. Our sophisticated and eclectic creations are the perfect way to add personality and bursts of colour to your home, through exciting designs and the highest quality craftsmanship. (The wallpaper in the first few photos is from her line and I’m in love with this cushion).
