A family oasis

Posted on Thu, 6 Aug 2015 by midcenturyjo

This bright and airy extension to a California bungalow by Melbourne-based BG Architecture is all about flexible open plan living and a seamless transition between inside and out. Favourite bits? The generous daybed by the expansive window (which you just know will hide great storage) and the simple, modern lines of the kitchen warmed by wood and the terracotta lights. These stylish family quarters are the perfect relaxed oasis from the bustle of the outside world.

When looking through Manhattan interior designer Tori Golub‘s portfolio, you may mistake it for an ad for 1stdibs. Which means each item of furniture, lighting and accessory is a statement piece. Her interiors are works of art, sculptural and organic. I’m obsessing over the art in the photo below.

Lakeside lair

Posted on Fri, 31 Jul 2015 by midcenturyjo

Moody and brooding. Modern masculine with a touch of retro. Wood on the walls and mah jong sofa on the floor. A stylish lair for entertaining and relaxing. And then there is the water. Lakes 1 via Airspace locations.

Still

After all this time. After all the rooms I’ve seen. Still love this place. I remember when I first saw that kitchen wall and those brass taps in Elle Decoration UK all those years ago. Collage House by Jonathan Tuckey Design.

Narrow beauty

Posted on Mon, 27 Jul 2015 by midcenturyjo

Luxury and style in a house only 11ft (that’s just over 3m) wide. The narrow dwelling rises over 3 storeys and has been selectively gutted and thoughtfully renovated to create a fab family home. There’s even a little surprise at the end of the garden. The Warren Mews Townhouse in the Cobble Hill neighbourhood of Brooklyn by Ensemble Architecture and Elizabeth Roberts Design.
