Citrus Scandi

Posted on Wed, 17 Oct 2018 by midcenturyjo

Take an apartment with amazing bones such as soaring windows, ornate plaster cornices, herringbone floors and Swedish tile stoves. Fill it with the best of contemporary furniture (blonde wood obligatory of course). A monochromatic paint palette would be all  that was needed to achieve the much coveted Scandi style home. But add a slice or two of citrus oomph and it takes it to a whole other level. Talk about zing!!!

Black + blue + green in an architect’s home

Posted on Wed, 10 Oct 2018 by KiM

We are the biggest fans of Paris architecture firm double g so it comes as no surprise that I adore the home of Anne Geistdoerfer (one half of the firm alongside Flora de Gastines). All of the built in shelving blows my mind (2 posts in a row!), and the colour palette of black, blue and green is dramatic and really beautiful. (Details on the space can be found in this article)

A colourful Hackney Victorian

Posted on Sun, 7 Oct 2018 by KiM

I don’t know that I would ever want to surround myself with lots of bold colours and a really maximalist way of decorating but that doesn’t stop me from grinning ear to ear when I spot a home like this. This wild coloured and vintage-to-the-rafters Victorian home in Hackney may not be for everyone, but it sure is cheerful! Via jj Locations.

The softest shade of green

Posted on Thu, 27 Sep 2018 by midcenturyjo

There’s something about that green. Cool, calming, refreshing like a dip in the ocean or a drop in the temperature on a hot, hot day.  Add the gold accents, the hint of lucite and pattern repeat of lattice and I find myself scheming a way to include a small garden room in my own home.

Fabrizio Casiraghi

Posted on Tue, 7 Aug 2018 by KiM

What is it with all Parisian designers consistently rocking my world?!?! Here is a new-to-me designer Fabrizio Casiraghi and snippets from several of his fabulous projects. He experiments with color, creates surprising melanges and masters the use of light. His experience at the French architecture studio of Dominique Perrault and his formative years at Polytechnic University of Milan, enabled him to achieve the perfect balance between lyricism and milanese sophistication, austerity and purity. Fabrizio Casiraghi redefines a free modernity that isn’t opposed to the past but rather incorporates historical references, a discrete ambiance and a taste for the intimate while also being daring with bold combinations and through the imaginative use of light and space. Casiraghi delights in overturning the codes of interior design with surprising contrasts: neon light with ancient mirrors, precious fabrics with industrial resin, and antique furniture with extravagant plant displays, always with a seductive harmony and an invitation to travel, sometimes calm, sometimes exotic.
