What was once the very dated mid century Nashville home of country singer Tammy Wynette, is now a chic, hollywood glam meets contemporary cool and casual space with one of the sweetest pools I have ever seen. How much of a challenge would furnishing a home with so many curved walls be?! ‘TammyWood’ designed by Rachel Halvorson.

A renovated 1960s ranch home in Austin

Posted on Mon, 8 Mar 2021 by KiM

This 1968 home on Lake Austin, Texas recently underwent a dramatic transformation inside and out and is a wonderful backdrop to the homeowner’s extensive art collection. Modern yet has some cozy spaces for relaxing, whilst maintaining an overall mid century vibe. The dining room does double duty as a conference space for these work from home times, and the sliding wall is in fact a massive white board. Love that!

In balance

This beautiful home in the suburbs of Madrid was designed by Isabel López-Quesada. A neutral palette, an eclectic blend of furnishings with a fairly strong lean towards mid-century and an all-around timeless vibe makes this a winner.

Neutral modernism

Finding this home featured on The Socialite Family made me realize that if I ever purchase a mid-century home this is how I would want to decorate it. Neutral, earthy modernism. Fabulous.

A handcrafted modern home

Posted on Fri, 16 Oct 2020 by KiM

Modern with a dose of mid century and slathered in rich wood and contrasting white painted brick. I love this home by Commune Design. Designed in collaboration with Feldman Architecture, this 5000 square foot residence in San Francisco was handcrafted from the ground up. Inspired by modernist Scandinavian architecture, the house has a limited material palette of lime washed Norman brick, black terracotta tile, plaster, copper, blackened bronze and salvaged local redwood, walnut and elm. All cabinetry, doors, windows and railings were handcrafted as well as all decorative elements including the Stan Bitters fireplace in the outdoor living room. The young clients wanted a home “to grow old in” with interiors that are classic, inviting and layered with commissioned furniture pieces, custom rugs and vintage furnishings.
