An eclectic apartment in Madrid

Posted on Wed, 13 May 2020 by KiM

What an absolutely beautiful, vintage-filled apartment this is! Located in Malasaña, Madrid, it is filled with many eclectic and unexpected touches that make it really unique. That screen above is to die for, the sofa cover is GORG (LOVE the draped arms), lots of modern artwork and bits of wallpaper for some added pattern. And there’s even a tree. Designed by Pepe Leal.

“This historic Victorian townhouse located in Notting Hill, London, was reconfigured for an active family of five. The original building’s interior had narrow circulation and small, boxy rooms. It was gutted and replaced with a new central staircase and streamlined rooms that emphasize comfort and family friendliness. New open plan living spaces were created on the ground floor and transitional details are found throughout, striking a balance between the historic and the modern.”

As soon as I came across a feature on Russian designer Boris Dmitriev‘s office/apartment in Architectural Digest Russia I laughed because it is such a bold contrast to the office Jo featured yesterday. Located in a building built in 1905 in Moscow, this 84 m² space is so unique. Boris does not shy away from colour or pattern! I know this isn’t for everyone, but his attention to detail and the way he pulls it all together with such cohesion is extraordinary.

A green courtyard house

Posted on Wed, 8 Apr 2020 by midcenturyjo

We all dream of a verdant green courtyard but I had never thought of using green tiles. Designers Hugh-Jones Mackintosh converted an liberally “ochred” Tuscan ripoff into a vibrant, light-filled contemporary space. No structural changes were made. The magic comes from clever colour choices, charming art and the perfect combination of vintage and new pieces. Tthen there is the courtyard with its vivid green wall of Moroccan tiles. Stunning … and perfect for those with black thumbs 😉
