Amagansett dreams

Posted on Wed, 27 Feb 2019 by midcenturyjo

I think in a parallel universe I’m rich and summer in the Hamptons but not in your usual Hamptons’ home. No I live in a house that is timeless yet contemporary, full of colour and killer art. The front door is purple, a big yellow canoe hangs in the entrance and my love for midcentury shines through. In a parallel universe Timothy Brown Studio designed this Amagansett home just for me.

Dreamy spaces in Canadian homes

Posted on Fri, 22 Feb 2019 by KiM

Canadian House & Home magazine is a favourite of mine and has been for as long as I can remember, so I find their website is a wonderful source for fabulously designed Canadian homes. I thought I would share some that have caught my eye recently.

Ático en el centro Madrid

Posted on Tue, 19 Feb 2019 by midcenturyjo

High up in the rafters in the centre of Madrid is a penthouse full of light and space, pattern and colour and most of all exhuberance. It’s about modern living within a historic shell, keeping the past but surrounding yourself with contemporary luxury. Fabulous Spanish interiors by design duo Melián Randolph.

A several-room renovation in a home in Almonte

Posted on Mon, 18 Feb 2019 by KiM

I hate Facebook for the most part, but was reminded recently why I still have an account. Because without it I would not have noticed this incredible renovation project by Emily Arbour. Emily has a gorgeous home in Almonte, a small town outside of Ottawa, and her home was in desperate need of an update. What I saw on Facebook sure captured my attention, and when I went to check out the full story on her blog, I was blown away. The transformation of her kitchen, sunroom, foyer, family room and powder room is fantastic!!! Congrats Emily! I bet you and your family are loving every bit of it. (She has tons of details and sources in her blog post).

The Carriage House

Posted on Tue, 22 Jan 2019 by midcenturyjo

Bucolic bliss with just the slightest touch of boho in Bedford, NY by Virginia Tupker Interiors. Tupkert, who has worked for House & Garden, Vogue and Vogue Living has a passion for textiles which she uses deftly as a counterfoil to the rustic stone and old boards in this old carriage house. It’s rough yet refined, cosy yet chic. The perfect country getaway without the country kitsch.
