A Tribeca loft

Posted on Mon, 20 Sep 2021 by KiM

I keep thinking I am over the idea of loft living but then I come across a loft that is sooooo well done like this one designed by Damon Liss and my love for these spaces is rekindled. Especially when it includes exposed brick and a sweet outdoor space. (Photos: Joshua McHugh)

An art collector’s Paris flat

Posted on Thu, 16 Sep 2021 by KiM

A bit more contemporary than the home I shared on Sunday by Luis Laplace, this is the renovated Paris apartment of model Adriana Abascal. She is quite obviously a serious art collector and her 5 bedroom apartment in a Haussmann-era building in the 16th arrondissement with views of the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe is the perfect backdrop. (I am saddened to learn Luis stripped out ornate paneling and replacing busy-looking moldings and baseboards that I assume were original to the 19th century apartment but did keep the original herringbone parquet flooring and marble fireplace mantels.)

Colour and pattern in the Napa Valley

Posted on Mon, 13 Sep 2021 by midcenturyjo

If the last house was all about restrained colour palettes and minimalist vibes allowing the old house to shine this one is all about colour and pattern in a new build. Think more, more, more and perhaps just a little bit more. Even with so much going on the house is not visually cluttered. In fact its clean contemporary lines are the perfect foil to the extravagance. What a fun house to grow up in! St Helena, Napa Valley by ETC.etera.

Modern Mediterranean in California

Posted on Fri, 10 Sep 2021 by KiM

This home in Del Mar, California takes Mediterranean vibes and adds a dose of modernity to it. Lots of wood, textures, and a very pale, neutral palette make this really peaceful, inviting and warm. Designed by Intimate Living Interiors. Photos: Karyn Millett.

Monochrome and texture

Posted on Tue, 7 Sep 2021 by midcenturyjo

Take the monochromatic colour palette of our last house warmed with camel and caramels. Elevate the scheme with texture, texture and more texture. Dabble with the darkside and indulge the comfort cravings. Modern living captured to perfection by Nashville-based April Tomlin Interiors.
