Casa Pueblo

Posted on Thu, 11 Jul 2019 by midcenturyjo

Time for a virtual getaway. We’re escaping to a one-of-a-kind boutique hotel Casa Pueblo in Tulum, Mexico. “At the nexus of tropical bohemianism and clean urban design, the hotel offers a host of features, from fresh dining options, to a sparkling pool, an organic coffee shop, and 16 beautifully appointed rooms.” Simple and stylish luxury in a beautiful part of the world. Couldn’t think of a better escape even if it’s only a virtual one … for now.

Working on a Saturday

It’s like I say week after week. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it certainly helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Abbey Capital Offices in Dublin by Kingston Lafferty Design.

A minimalist adobe house

Posted on Mon, 17 Jun 2019 by midcenturyjo

“An indoor-outdoor space filled with art and soft textures to create a sanctuary closely linked to the earth.” That’s what Californian interior designer Corinne Mathern wanted to create with this renovation of a 3 bedroom adobe villa in Mission Cannon, Santa Barbara. An oasis of calm (with a touch of brutalism), monochromatic and minimalist, earthy and sophisticated.

I’m real estate strolling scrolling in the Sydney suburb of Balmain where I have found an old weatherboard cottage whose historic facade belies the modern family home inside. This may have once been a working class suburb but with time comes gentrification and ever increasing prices. Link here while it lasts.

Nordic craftsmenship

I have all things “kitchen” on my mind. It may be because I am almost finished my own kitchen renovation ( I promise to share photos as soon as it is done) or it may just be that I keep coming across killer kitchens as I surf the net … like these sustainable bamboo beauties by Norwegian Ask og Eng. Choose from custom built or door fronts for IKEA carcasses. Perfect!
