A converted ironmongers warehouse

Posted on Sun, 11 Mar 2018 by KiM

This may be my all time favourite warehouse conversion ever featured on this here blog. This beauty is a recently converted and extended ironmongers warehouse in London. THE KITCHEN!!! A total dream in tile, concrete, walnut, marble, copper, brass and brick. TO DIE FOR!!! I would stop there but I am also a new huge fan of terrazzo flooring so there’s that too. Available as a location home through Shoot Factory.

Loft Love

Posted on Thu, 22 Feb 2018 by midcenturyjo

Have I told you how much i love a loft? The soaring ceilings, the open plan living, the industrial vibe. Add a wall of books,a scattering of colourful rugs and a fabulous collection of personal pieces and I want to move right in.

A layered SoHo loft

Posted on Tue, 16 Jan 2018 by KiM

My love for lofts has now reached new heights, as I think this may be my favourite of all time. First of all, it is large enough to have 3 separate sitting/lounge rooms. OMG! And this layered style with a plethora of textures colours and patterns and lots of artwork is perfection in a nutshell. I am completely in love with every inch of this loft in SoHo designed by Katie Leede.

Warehouse living in inner-city Sydney

I’ve always dreamed of warehouse living but this Surry Hills conversion by Josephine Hurley Architecture takes it to the next level. Those windows are to die for, the brick on fleek and the modern minimalism the perfect counterfoil to this historic industrial building.

Stalking a concept

Posted on Wed, 15 Nov 2017 by midcenturyjo

I’m in Amsterdam stalking a development site. A raw shell, gutted, rough and ready with jackhammered walls and neon surveyor’s marks… and I love it. I’ve included the computer generated renderings of the proposed apartment but is it wrong of me to love the romance of the raw and turn my back on the slick and chic of the new? (OK, OK I’d like a better mattress and perhaps a bathroom and kitchen but don’t dismiss my daydream out of hand.) You can see more here. Via DSTRCT.
