Dark and light, chic and relaxed

A timeless palette of black and white complimented by a neutral materials scheme of stone, wood and tile. Bright and serene, moody yet calm the interiors of this Bridgehampton family home by  Timothy Godbold is so classic, so sophisticated and yet so casual and inclusive. A home of two halves? No it’s a resolution of the chic and the relaxed.

 

 

I’m still real estate scrolling  and I’m still near the water but this time I’m in Jan Juc down on Victoria’s Surf Coast. OK this stylish bungalow isn’t so much a surf shack as it is a wonderful family home but it’s just down the road from the famous Bells Beach and that warrants a surf board or two on hand in the garage. Love the colourful Scandi vibe, the herringbone oak floors, the linen curtains, the wonderful pattern overload in the bedrooms. Fun, fresh and definitely all about the family.

I’m real estate scrolling in the Melbourne bayside suburb of St Kilda and I think I’ve found the perfect pied-à-terre but it’s more than just somewhere to drop your bags and head out into cosmopolitan city. Small in size but definitely big in style. No wonder because this bijou gem is the work of interior stylist Lynda Gardener.  It’s going to auction next month. Seriously tempted.

Parisian perfection

Posted on Mon, 20 May 2019 by midcenturyjo

Let’s tick off our ultimate apartment check list. Large rooms with exposed timber beams and steel framed windows. Killer art collection. Pierre Jeanneret chairs. Expansive terrazzo floors and for added impact a monolithic terrazzo kitchen island. Have we forgotten anything? Oh yes! A Paris address. Rue Galilée by Bernard Dubois Architects

The real estate agent calls it “understated opulence” and “unparalleled sophistication and luxury”, I call it a trophy home …. but sometimes we want it big and bold and worth a squillion. I strolling scrolling in Melbourne’s prestigious suburb of Toorak. Expansive city views and expansive floors and walls of marble. Add the obligatory movie theatre, gym, wine cellar, roof top entertainment area along withan underground carpark as big as many people’s homes and it’s contemporary, clean lined luxury all the way.
