The conservatory

Posted on Tue, 12 Nov 2019 by midcenturyjo

Usually I would be waxing lyrical about the barn conversion. I mean come on, great rustic kitchen, soaring white ceilings but sorry I only have eyes for one thing. OMG that is the BEST conservatory. Full stop. No contest. By MAN architecten, a creative studio for sustainable architecture and interior architecture based in Sint-Niklaas, Belgium.

Nantucket nuances

Posted on Fri, 8 Nov 2019 by midcenturyjo

TGIF! Time to getaway from the rat race. Perhaps an island escape. Time to day dream about owning a home like this Nantucket beauty by San Francisco based interior designer Katie Martinez. Her work is relaxed, classic, natural. No fuss, no cliché just summer house simplicity and style.

It’s small, it’s old and dare I say a little rickety but it’s packed full of character and life. Add in a killer central Sydney location and a fabulous Aboriginal art collection and I’m hooked. (How retrolicious is that Albert Namatjira prints vignette on the landing?) The land size is only 76m² and the auction price guide is $1.6 million so I won’t be buying but I can dream I’m the current owner and not the one who will buy it and redevelop it. For sale in Darlinghurst here while the link lasts.

We don’t typically post renderings but when it’s this fabulous I’m making an exception. Utkan Gunerkan is an Istanbul-born architect based in Milan, Italy, and this bathroom and kitchen are for projects in Puerto Vallarta, my favourite place on earth. They are SO much fun and graphic and creative. If I could make these come true in my home I’d die. And I think it was meant to be seeing as I just replaced my dining room chandelier with one that is turquoise, a colour I never use.

A marriage of modern and vintage

This four storey Georgian town house is a wonderful mix of new and old. Think contemporary kitchen with poured concrete floors, flashes of retro orange, moody rooms in the older part of the house, vintage finds and a myriad of house plants. Fun, flirt and fab.
