Stalking in Finland

Posted on Wed, 28 Apr 2010 by midcenturyjo

I think I’ve died and gone to heaven. We have Tiina to thank for the link to the apartment we are stalking today. Classic meets modern in Helsinki, Finland. Warm buttery creams, white floors, sparkly chandeliers, stainless steel, timber and Ghost chairs. I’d gladly be Cinderella and sleep beside the stove in the kitchen. Then again there is always that comfy iron bed. The link is here while it lasts. Stay tuned I have another stalking in Sydney in a few hours.

Clever use of space with interesting storage solutions. Midcentury meets contemporary, modern urban with a clean lines. New York interior designer Robert Austin Gonzalez delivers rooms that scream stylish Big Apple apartment. I personally want the carved timber panel as sliding door, a great counterpoint to the midcentury modern vibe. Clever TV solutions too. While you’re at his website you must check out his furniture collection particularly the Grace range. Sculptural pieces so sexy and sinuous. Yum!

Reader’s home

Ann-Marie and Oliver emailed us recently wanting to share their renovated London home with us. It’s a Victorian cottage that they completely gutted and extended (and fortunately they included some before photos). The decor is stunning – all light woods, creamy and white walls, gorgeous white kitchen with butcherblock countertops….there’s SO MUCH to love in this home. Such simple and natural spaces that easily please the eye. Fantastic work Ann-Marie and Oliver – you guys should be really proud of your hard work!

Sophisticated and glamorous but with just a touch of the earthy. It’s a look that is grounded and yet well travelled. It’s part grand tour, part drama and tension, part family estate, part luxury hotel,  part Out of Africa and always elegant. South African interior designer John Jacob doesn’t just interpret his client’s needs and he creates a dream home. Sundown drinks on the patio? Maybe after a soak in the tub… glass in hand of course.

Helen Green

Reserved, stiff upper lip, conservative, carry on. Everything British. No try instead refined, elegant, modern with traditional references. London interior designer Helen Green creates spaces with a subtle luxury, establishment with a contemporary take. Careful though. She won’t be boxed in by tradition.
