Colour is King

Posted on Thu, 6 Dec 2018 by midcenturyjo

Terracotta and dirtied greens, salmon and persimmon, walls clad in shadowy bucolic wallpaper as backdrop to contemporary furniture that can only be classified as “statement”. With its bold rooms within old bones this Lyon residence by Claude Cartier puts all those monochromatic white upon white spaces I’ve been featuring lately to shame. If colour is king then long live the King!

Heaven on the hilltop

Posted on Fri, 30 Nov 2018 by midcenturyjo

“Architecture meets the art of living in this extraordinary, contemporary three-bedroom home comprised of a plinth and pavilion structure nestled into the northern California nature. An array of sliding glass panels retracts completely into the home’s core, dematerializing the structure into a native-oak-strewn ridge.

Bridging architectural innovation with day-to-day functionality and family living, the interiors are accented with warm finishes, elemental materials and personal accessories. Anchoring the highly edited spaces, custom furnishings are crafted with exacting artisanship. Interiors are both timeless and welcoming.”

I was going to string along some totally inadequate descriptions which included words like fabulous and amazing but I don’t have to. The designer’s own description and the photos tell it all. The only thing I would like to add is WOW! Larkspur Hilltop by Nicole Hollis.

Serene dream

Modernist Italian design meets a listed Victorian building in Notting Hill, London and the result is not a chaotic clash but a beautifully curated, family home by Francesca Oggioni. Key features are the muted palette and natural finishes, the preservation of lovely old features like the stone staircase and the streamlined storage that fades into the spaces allowing that minimalist look devoid of necessary, everyday clutter.
