A penthouse getaway in Tulum

Posted on Fri, 16 Apr 2021 by midcenturyjo

It’s Friday so it must be time for a virtual weekend getaway. In this daydream we’ve reached the new normal, we’re vaccinated and we’re in Tulum, Mexico. I’m not sure how we can fit the thousands and thousands of you in this apartment but hey it’s a daydream. We’ll make it work. First dibs on the bedroom with the dark bathroom! Penthouse Panopea in Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico. Book via Airbnb.

Ballast Point House

Posted on Wed, 14 Apr 2021 by midcenturyjo

“Designed for multi-generational living, this courtyard house resolves a difficult 260sqm sandstone ridge site through creation of a podium base consisting of a garage and clever two-level, dual-key apartment suite over which rests a two-storey dwelling of light-filled spaces clustered around gardens and courtyards.”

Emili Fox, the director of Sydney based architectural practice Fox Johnston has created her family’s forever home over three levels, the lower containing a suite for her parents. The house with its simple material palette of recycled brick, concrete and plywood seamlessly connects with the gardens through walls of glass while sustainability principles are at the forefront of the design.

Big Red Sun

Big Red Sun is a landscape and garden design studio, plant nursery, and lifestyle boutique located in Venice, California, and I am so happy to have discovered them. Their love of succulents and container gardening is such an inspiration. Makes me wish so badly that I lived in a warmer climate.

Forgive me. I seem to have developed a new obsession, French beach houses especially in the Cap Ferret region. French chic meets a casual, sun-kissed lifestyle in this holiday house by L’Atelier Delphine Carrère. Sigh! I wish I was there right now.
