Belle Meade

Posted on Mon, 27 Jul 2020 by midcenturyjo

Consistent, timeless, unique. Elegant and restained, layers of patina and carefully curated pieces. A new home that respects the past and builds a future. Belle Meade residence by Nashville-based interior designer Rachel Halvorson.








Stalking 1

Posted on Thu, 23 Jul 2020 by midcenturyjo

Thanks to reader Rach who reminded me I hadn’t posted a real estate post for sooooooooooooooo long I decided it was time to start house stalking again. Thankfully the market has picked up and there are design treasures popping up again … like this Surry Hills terrace designed by Tribe Studio Architects. From the structural ply kitchen and shelves to concrete floors spilling out to a courtyard through sliding timber doors to the owner’s great taste in mid century classics. The perfect inner, inner Sydney pad. Link here while it lasts.


A beautifully curated, carefully layered home with an eclectic mixing of styles from mid century to Asian to vintage. The result is open and light with a timeless appeal. Oh to be the owner of this Colonial Bungalow in Singapore’s Harbourfront by Davina Stanley of London-based Paper + White.

Off the grid and stylish lake house

Posted on Mon, 13 Jul 2020 by midcenturyjo

Today’s second lake house is not only off the grid it’s off the scale for stylish, unplugged living. This weekend getaway is all about natural materials and soft muted tones. If it was mine I’d be living here more than just on weekends. New Buffalo house by Chicago-based Elizabeth Krueger Design.

Sophisticated by the sea

Certainly no beach shack this Hamptons weekender for a young city couple is part mid century, part transitional, a little whimsical and always with a subtle sophistication. I never understand why people actually leave these “weekenders” to return to the work-a-day rat race. I’d be investigating work from home options.
