Dating back to 1871, Ellsworth rests serenely along a tranquil country road in northwestern Connecticut. Originally a sprawling 1,200-acre dairy farm, its current thirty-three-acre expanse of woodlands and fields preserves the narrative of its evolving past. Having admired the property for years, the renovation by Hendricks Churchill was carefully considered. Today, Heide Hendricks and Rafe Churchill call it home, honouring its history through ongoing enhancements, including maintaining hay fields and repurposing the dairy barn.

A grand marriage in Paris

Posted on Fri, 12 Apr 2024 by midcenturyjo

The apartment on Rue du Cirque in Paris’ chic 8th arrondissement by architectural designer Isabelle Stanislas is a marriage of style and substance, of bespoke and vintage. From its grand entrance hall to the sleek, modern kitchen its emphasis is on contemporary luxury living while celebrating the historical shell that contains it.

Here, the choice was made to open up all the windows to maximise the amount of light but also the number of views to the outside world. The kitchen is completely open to the living room and stands out for its colour, but is discreet in that it hides all its cupboards, offering a kind of extension to the living room, reinforced by the presence of a large mirror above the worktop, which plays with the volumes and has fun blocking the view with a play of reflections. The bedroom has been designed as a glazed hut set into the flat. Made entirely of rough-hewn planks, it provides just enough space for a double bed, a dressing area and a discreet passageway to the bathroom, which is dressed in pink and marble. Playing with perspectives and offering unobstructed views, while at the same time highlighting the uniqueness and specificity of each room, makes the small square metre definitely more lively and livable.

L.A. vibes and retro styling, a marriage made in heaven. With its expansive views looking down from the Hollywood Hills, this contemporary meets mid-century home has an emphasis on indoor/outdoor living all with more than a nod to simple, sleek lines and minimal ornamentation.
