Haute eclectic in Saint-Germain-des-Près

Posted on Thu, 23 May 2019 by KiM

Haute eclectic in its finest form in a jaw-dropping apartment in Saint-Germain-des-Près designed by Stéphane Olivier. The mix of Italian and Scandinavian mid-century furnishings is stunning with the architectural features. I could certainly do without the rhino head though 🙁 (Photos: Gilles Trillard)

What was an office in Madrid is now a drop dead gorgeous duplex with original details maintained such as marble fireplaces, cast iron columns, high ceilings, herringbone floors. The eclectic furnishings add a warmth and a somewhat Parisian vibe that I’m really falling for. Designed by Noel Marichalar.

A neutral retreat

Posted on Thu, 7 Mar 2019 by midcenturyjo

San Francisco based interior designer Rachel Blindauer may have called this project a neutral retreat but what I see is an almost painterly approach to breathing new life into a mid century home. Daubs of colour flash through washes of greige, catching the eye, drawing you into a space. Calm yet colourful with a relaxed sophistication.

A home with fabulous architecture made even more fabulous by Los Angeles-based designer Jenika Kurtz Cuadra. She did such a great job in turning this family home into something cool, comfortable and timeless while playing up the mid-century modern vibe of the architecture. (Photos: Amy Bartlam)

 

Garden goals

Posted on Tue, 5 Feb 2019 by midcenturyjo

You know I only show you the garden posts because I’m looking for inspiration myself. Good. We’ve got that clear 🙂 I’m all in a hot tizz over this garden in Palos Verdes, California. Completed in 2000 by San Francisco based landscape architectural practice SURFACEDESIGN INC. it is a masterclass in low maintenance, drought resistant planting and dramatic yet simple hard landscaping. Garden goals I do believe.
