A holiday house in Umbria 1

Posted on Fri, 2 Aug 2019 by midcenturyjo

TGIF! Time to escape on a little Italian holiday. For those of you who found the strict minimalism of Wednesday’s Tuscan stone house just a little too spartan (read boring) then today we’re crossing into Umbria to a large farmhouse that has been divided in very private apartments. I can hear your collective sigh from here. That’s better! Love the vintage meets industrial meets stone farmhouse vibe. Just perfect for a relaxed family or friends getaway. You can book a stay at Mazzo via Special Umbria and you can check out the sister apartment here.

 

 

A holiday house in Tuscany

Modern and minimalist under the Tuscan sun, this traditional stone house with a clean lined contemporary interior is the perfect getaway. A stylish holiday home by Stephanie Thatenhorst.

A colourful Kensington family home

Posted on Mon, 29 Jul 2019 by midcenturyjo

The scope of work for this Kensington, London home included the refurbishment of the kitchen and dining room. Think bespoke joinery, installation of interior and exterior crittall windows and the icing on the cake, the decoration. The result is a celebration of colour and pattern, of stylish family living. By Anna von Waldburg.

I think by now you would know that I have a thing for beautifully renovated Victorian era architecture. I go weak at the knees for a stunning terrace house with contemporary yet sympathetic interiors. If the lower floor has exposed Sydney sandstone walls, light streaming in and a pool then I’m a goner. I’m real estate strolling scrolling in the Sydney suburb of Paddington in a stunning home with interiors by Madeleine Blanchfield Architects. If the bank manager would just lend me the millions required I’d move straight in. I wonder if the owner would leave the Leila Jeffreys’ bird photographs behind? Link here while it lasts.

A funky bungalow in Montauk

Posted on Fri, 19 Jul 2019 by midcenturyjo

Time to escape the everyday. Time for another virtual getaway. We’re headed to Montauk, New York,  a village at the east end of the Long Island peninsula but we’re not headed to a home full of  Hamptons’ clichés. No our getaway is a cool surf-inspired bungalow where mid century meets boho. Light, bright and perfect for up to 8 guests. I’m filing those exterior wall slats in my inspiration folder.
