Chasing the dream – cool by the sea

Posted on Thu, 31 Oct 2019 by midcenturyjo

Contemporary by the sea with a mid century vibe taken to the next level with terracotta floors, limewashed ceilings, concrete accents and Oblica fireplace. Add in the bold art works and on point furnishings and this is one cool beach shack in Jan Juc on Victoria’s Surf Coast. Unfortunately for us it has been quickly snapped up. Link here while it lasts.

I wanted to share another project (in case you missed Sunday’s post: here) by NICOLEHOLLIS where modern, edgy glam, with lots of black and brass set the stage again. Set within a classical Russian Hill, San Francisco townhouse, the home’s architecture makes it even more striking.

It should be obvious to you dear reader that my house drug of choice is the Victorian terrace. Yes, yes I know that they are narrow and dark and a lot of times are screaming out for a sympathetic modernisation but I can’t help it. I’m hooked. I’ve been real estate strolling scrolling and I’d like to get my grubby little fingers on this one. Great job so far and lots of potential for even more improvements. For sale here while the link lasts.

Small Courtyard, High Detail

Posted on Mon, 21 Oct 2019 by midcenturyjo

What it lacks in size is more than made up in style and the attention to detail. Love the repeating circle motif, the lush planting of succulents and the promise of toasty evenings entertaining by the outdoor fireplace. So many ideas going into my inspiration file.
