The Art Studio

Posted on Tue, 23 Apr 2024 by KiM

A quaint addition to the iconic Spray Farm Estate (Victoria’s Bellarine Peninsula), The Art Studio purposefully and eloquently invites artistic inspiration from the first step inside. Architecturally referencing details of the original homestead, our interior choices were sympathetic to the surrounding landscape, minimalist in design, abundant in high quality craftsmanship and technically executed for practicality.
I may not be an artist per se but WHOA would working at my current government day job virtually and working on this blog from a space like this would be a dream come true. And I thought my greenhouse was a decent outdoor space to work from…

A modern oasis in Hollywood

Posted on Mon, 22 Apr 2024 by midcenturyjo

Contemporary architecture blends with mid-century aesthetics in the Hollywood Hills home of Osklo co-founders Arya and Michael Martin. Japanese aesthetics inform the design with a materials palette of herringbone oak floors, creamy limestone and knotty wood panelling, emulating the Japanese Hinoki wood’s look on the exterior. A perfect blend of Eastern design and Western ambience.

Hue House

Posted on Mon, 8 Apr 2024 by midcenturyjo

The owners found a “perfect” One big problem … it lacked personality. Enter Sydney-based design studio Esoteriko who revived it with targeted interventions such as new joinery, a fireplace and staircase, along with art curation, lighting, custom rugs, furniture, and window treatments. They connected indoor spaces to the garden, redesigned the kitchen’s double-height volume and added a delicate balustrade to the concrete stairs and custom brass pendants.

“It was important that there was not one overpowering genre or style, rather that new and old could sit comfortably together, alongside new material elements and the ‘bones’ of the house, expansive grey limestone. The decorative elements needed to create a sense of warmth and comfort that expands outdoors.”

“A full interior and exterior renovation of a c.1905 federation cottage and converted stables outbuilding. The extensive renovation aims to blur the line between old and new, original and reinterpreted. Respecting its federation past, the renovation provides a contemporary overlay that honours decorative ornamentation and materials familiar to the federation era. Interior colour, decoration and furniture selections were inspired by the extensive collection of art painted by our client over a number of years. “

Red stove and yellow walls

Posted on Tue, 26 Mar 2024 by KiM

The apartment has a clock chip in a partial enfilade and is located in the attic of a tenement house dating back to 1905. A marble fireplace constitutes the central part of the interior. A hand-painted ceiling refers to the Dutch painting. The walls are covered with wooden panels. Single herringbone pattern of the wooden floor is painted in white. The apartment is furnished with originally designed furniture and furniture systems which are tailor-made according to a design. (Some of this might not be translating correctly from Polish)
This project by Polish architect and colour designer Karolina Rochman-Drohomirecka is titled “Red Stove” but I think it really needs to be “Red Stove and Yellow Walls”. The graphic trim in the kitchen with the fun red stove, the lemon yellow central area with the gorgeous painted floral design on the black ceiling are really making a statement. Though I will admit I am 100% not on board with the white painted herringbone wood floor (whyyyyyyyyy?????).
