Urban classicism in Roman

Posted on Fri, 2 Nov 2018 by midcenturyjo

Stunning! The view and the apartment. But as much as I’m blown away by the history outside the windows it’s the interior that has me swooning. Think classicism meets contemporary values, new and old balanced just so but with a slight misalignment for the brivido, the frisson, the thrill. The beautiful old bones, the stark beauty of the white walls, the bespoke furniture, the light all create this urban classic by Rome-based architect and designer Stefano Dorata.

Still real estate stalking in Sydney and I have found a property that is both commercial and residential. Live work perfection. What else would you expect from one of Australia’s leading architectural firms Smart Design Studio? Link here while it lasts.

 

 

Laurence Simoncini does light

Posted on Mon, 15 Oct 2018 by midcenturyjo

Laurence Simoncini has moved towards the light. Black still features in her next home, an apartment created from a warren of office space, but more as an accent along with pops of gold. The emphasis is on textures playing off the white walls. Industrial meets vintage meets high Parisian style. Which do you like the dark or the light? Hard choice isn’t it? I think I might just have to take both.

Laurence Simoncini does dark

Posted on Mon, 15 Oct 2018 by midcenturyjo

You might remember Laurence Simoncini‘s Ile De Ré holiday home. (Here‘s Kim’s post about it.)The perfect exercise in rugged texture and scale. Well welcome to her Parisian warehouse home. Dark, moody and glamorous. Mustards and golds pop against deepest greys and blacks and an oversized gorilla lives in the lush, almost tropical garden. It’s dramatic yet cocooning, a dark oasis full of industrial and vintage touches. Don’t get too settled in though. Sh has moved as you will see in my next post.
