Lost in France … again

Posted on Thu, 12 May 2016 by midcenturyjo

I can’t help it. I always seem to lose myself again and again in the fabulous French apartments. Have you noticed how vibrant, how effortlessly stylish French interior design is at the moment? Case in point. La Dolce Vita by Paris-based Agence Véronique Cotrel. Magnifique.

“Rawson House is the transformation of an existing 1900’s semi-detached cottage in Sydney. The project is a sophisticated and contemporary exploration into materiality and spatial organisation, enhancing the experience of day-to-day living through elegant subtleties.”

Rawson House is fabulous renovation and extension of an older style house by an award winning architectural and interior design firm Alexander & Co. It’s light, bright and modern with clean lines and that all important connection to the outdoors.

I love a show house. They are a dream, a fantasy, a platform for interior designers and decorators to weave their magic. All in the name of beauty. All in the name of style. All in the name of pushing the boundaries. This artful living room at the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase by Antonio Martins Interior Design is inspired by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s expansion. The designer has created a space that celebrates the city’s vibrant creative energy and emphasizes the intersection of art and design. With its white lacquered walls, hot rolled steel floors, curated collection of vintage and cutting edge furniture as well as striking art it’s like a beautiful Salon, a meeting place for aesthetes, intellectuals and artists or, in our case, like-minded design lovers. Perhaps if you are in San Francisco you can visit this room and tell me how stunning it is in person. The San Francisco Decorator Showcase is open now through to May 30.

Upper West Side Apartment

“Sleek and minimal with a limited colour palette” could be design-speak for “hard and lifeless” but not with this NY apartment by 1100 Architect. Accents of wood and jute with layering of textures create a warm, modern home. Anyone else go weak at the knees for walls of steel and glass windows?
