Part 2 of Tapawingo Lake Camp consists of the Gathering Lodge (includes a speakeasy and card room and another stone fireplace – you can never have too many!), the Dining Hall with yet another stone fireplace with built-in banquettes on either side (OMGGGGG I love this) as well as an 18 person dining table and the cutest butler’s pantry, and Darwin’s Library (with another stone fireplace!!).

Pretty in pink

Posted on Tue, 16 Apr 2024 by midcenturyjo

Jillian Dinkel Interior Design revamped the interiors of a beautifully preserved Victorian Italianate terrace house for a professional couple and their children … and it’s all the clients’ love of pink. The designers prioritized preserving the interior architecture while integrating modern joinery and conveniences. The Woollahra terrace, built in 1891, offered a rare experience of stepping into a century-old home with well-preserved grand architectural elements. Named Tarella, its ornate cornices, stone fireplaces, and spacious front rooms provided a luxurious canvas for the design. The formal floor plan includes a sitting room, library and a generous primary suite with a walk-in wardrobe. A powder room with Memphis-inspired burgundy cabinetry was added on the entry level, mirroring the laundry and family bathroom design. Marble and bronze touches throughout create a sophisticated, textured look.

I am really just posting all of these photos as an excuse to feature the one above. That chair upholstered in quilt fabrics is just about the cutest and covetable thing I have ever seen. Photos from several country homes designed by the always inspiring Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler. (Some photos by Simon Upton)

An 1840 Gothic Revival home in Germantown, NY

Posted on Wed, 3 Apr 2024 by KiM

Oh what I would do to get my hands on a home like this! Gothic revival architecture – yes please! A fireplace in the kitchen – yes please! A sunroom (with an exterior that looks like a little cottage) – yes please! Timelessly classic traditional design with a touch of modernity – yes please! Design: L.B. Copeland; Architecture: Bohl Architects; Photos: Adam Kane Macchia

A gentleman’s apartment in Minneapolis

Posted on Wed, 3 Apr 2024 by KiM

I am smitten with this apartment in Minneapolis designed by Alecia Stevens. A mix of historic architecture and classic yet comfortable furnishings. This space includes a kitchen that I am head over heels in love with – lofty with stainless steel cabinets and an antique island with marble top and a really cool subway tile pattern on the walls AND has a fireplace with sitting area. It’s PERFECTION. Architecture: Andrew Hawkinson Contractor: Welch Forsman Photos: Scott Amundson
