If you’re going to San Francisco

Posted on Tue, 12 May 2020 by midcenturyjo

Warm and sophisticated with a tight colour palette of greens, tan and cream with pops of dramatic black this San Francisco house has ample entertaining spaces with low slung furniture to accentuate rather than block the view.  After all if your Russian Hill home looks out to Alcatraz Island then it’s always going to be about the view.

Minimalist detail

Posted on Tue, 12 May 2020 by midcenturyjo

“A period home’s minimalistic redesign and extension focusing on supreme detailing, exquisite materiality and a richly layered palette. The interior architecture celebrates clean geometries and a boldness of form. A restrained use of colour punctuates a monochrome palette while bespoke joinery and selected fixtures show a dedication to craftsmanship.”

A divinely bohemian 1850s Brooklyn brownstone

Posted on Mon, 11 May 2020 by KiM

Architect and designer Elizabeth Roberts strikes again with another exquisite project transforming centuries-old homes in Brooklyn into modernized masterpieces. In this four-story 1850s brownstone designed for a fashion designer, an art consultant and their children, a premium was placed on the way the space and interiors felt, first and foremost. The result is a bohemian home that is equal parts monumental and tactile. Select restored elements, such as the delicate crown molding in the parlor, play against clean plastered walls. Impactful and modern interventions are rendered with exquisite materials and delicate details, such as the thin proportions of the railings and posts inside and out, an oversized island clad in expressive stone, a family room with an elevated hearth that turns into a bench and a travertine-clad master bath with custom tub. An exquisite balance is struck between bold architectural moves and delicate proportions.
