Ashley Whittaker encore

Posted on Fri, 15 Nov 2013 by midcenturyjo

It is about colour and pattern, fabrics and finishes, detail and layering. It is a fresh and vibrant twist on traditional and classic. If the bleached out, overexposed, white, black and wood of Scandi design is leaving you wanting more then drink in the designs of Ashley Whittaker. (And even more in Kim’s previous post.)

Stalking a family beach house

Posted on Tue, 5 Nov 2013 by midcenturyjo

I’m stalking cool today. From its childlike “house” shape to its oak and concrete combo, this home at Barwon Heads, Victoria is colourful, fun and all about modern family living. Love the kitchen, the living dining room, the alfresco decks and who would not want their own skate ramp. Told you it was cool! Link here while it lasts.


Inside Out

Posted on Wed, 30 Oct 2013 by midcenturyjo

Christmas! Really? Christmas already? Wasn’t it only New Year’s Eve a couple of months ago? I was shocked into action when the crew at Inside Out sent me a sneak peek at the cover story of the November issue, “Comfort & Joy” with words by Clare Patience, styling by Julia Green and photography by Armelle Habib. Love the casually stylish, beach meets scandi meets handmade vibe of both the decorations and the house. Can’t wait to to devour the rest of the magazine.

Aussie readers can pick up their copy Thursday. Don’t fret if you aren’t in Australia though because you can read along on ZinioGoogle Play and the Apple Newsstand. I’ve been reading for a couple of months on Zinio and I love it. Still think I’ll be picking up a real copy though. Can’t break the habit.

Pierre Yovanovitch update

Posted on Fri, 25 Oct 2013 by KiM

It has been about 5 years since I last featured Parisian architect and interior designer Pierre Yovanovitch, and after devouring his portfolio I have to admit that I’m loving his newer work much more. A bit more refined, a bit more rustic, a bit more neutral. Elegant and contemporary, design projects that persuade by the strength of their soundly conceived architectural presence that gracefully avoids both complication and ostentation. So good I have some favourites coming up later.

Rachcoff Vella Architecture

Posted on Thu, 24 Oct 2013 by KiM

I’ve got more “what I would do if I lived there” projects. This time by Rachcoff Vella Architecture. Their homes are modern, streamlined, bright and just pure class. All of the massive windows and the stunning wood floors and wood-clad walls used throughout are a dream.
