A colourful Kensington family home

Posted on Mon, 29 Jul 2019 by midcenturyjo

The scope of work for this Kensington, London home included the refurbishment of the kitchen and dining room. Think bespoke joinery, installation of interior and exterior crittall windows and the icing on the cake, the decoration. The result is a celebration of colour and pattern, of stylish family living. By Anna von Waldburg.

I think by now you would know that I have a thing for beautifully renovated Victorian era architecture. I go weak at the knees for a stunning terrace house with contemporary yet sympathetic interiors. If the lower floor has exposed Sydney sandstone walls, light streaming in and a pool then I’m a goner. I’m real estate strolling scrolling in the Sydney suburb of Paddington in a stunning home with interiors by Madeleine Blanchfield Architects. If the bank manager would just lend me the millions required I’d move straight in. I wonder if the owner would leave the Leila Jeffreys’ bird photographs behind? Link here while it lasts.

A funky bungalow in Montauk

Posted on Fri, 19 Jul 2019 by midcenturyjo

Time to escape the everyday. Time for another virtual getaway. We’re headed to Montauk, New York,  a village at the east end of the Long Island peninsula but we’re not headed to a home full of  Hamptons’ clichés. No our getaway is a cool surf-inspired bungalow where mid century meets boho. Light, bright and perfect for up to 8 guests. I’m filing those exterior wall slats in my inspiration folder.

A stylish Gramercy Park apartment

Posted on Fri, 19 Jul 2019 by midcenturyjo

Timeless and elegant but with an edge, a little frisson. Design classics meet curated collections, eclectic with personality. Old, new and of course killer art (pun intended). Gramercy Park apartment by Alberto Villalobos of interior design studio A. Villalobos.

I’m still in London and I’m still lamenting the fact that I can’t afford anything at all but a girl can still live vicariously through real estate listings. I must say that I could move straight into this split level apartment in an old print works factory in East Central London between Old Street and Clerkenwell. Exposed beams, bold blue kitchen and great art. Love it all.  Mitchell Street, London EC1 via The Modern House.
