Upstate House

Posted on Wed, 13 Jun 2018 by midcenturyjo

When I first laid eyes on this house by MR Architecture + Decor all I wanted to do was pack my bags, hop a plane and move right in. It’s the Hudson, New York home of the firm’s founding partner David Mann. Intimate, simple yet stylish, a window onto how the designer loves to live. Speaking of windows if the front door is locked when I turn up to claim squatter’s rights I might just scamper through one of those multi-paned Federal windows to gain access.

 

Black and white drama

Posted on Fri, 23 Mar 2018 by KiM

I love the theatre of a great entrance. It’s all about setting the scene for your visitors. “Welcome. Welcome. Come into my world.” And there’s nothing better than the drama of a black and white palette like this foyer and staircase by design studio Alison Rose New York. Simple yet luxurious, it’s a vibrant mix of black and white, old and new.

A library that’s central to all

Haussmannian architecture, signature furniture pieces and a foyer now converted to a library full of books. Just about ticks all the boxes for my perfect Paris apartment. I think I’ll be moving in to this Alma Marceau residence by Studio CMP.

Southern belle

I don’t think I’ve seen such a lovely entrance hall in ages. The colour, the textures, the mix of old and new, traditional but not at all stuffy, country but not saccharine sweet. If you love these three showhouse rooms by Ashley Gilbreath Interior Design you must see the rest of this Montgomery, Alabama based design firm’s portfolio.
