California dreaming

California dreaming in Newport Beach, high above the water. Warm summer days and outdoor spaces, high style and easy living. Understated sophistication, laid back yet luxurious. Dolphin Terrace by Kelly Nutt Design.

A wild garden in the sky

Posted on Fri, 10 Apr 2020 by midcenturyjo

Nine floors up in the city skyline is a comapny garden providing break out and informal meeting areas for its staff. Yada, yada, yah, yah, so what? A couple of planter boxes and a picnic table would be the most you would expect but that’s not what this garden is at all. Verdant greenery spilling everywhere, gentlemovement, a sense of exploration, an oasis in the city with the most exceptional views (Opera House sails anyone?). Clever ideas to steal for urban courtyard or balcony gardens. Platinum House by Sydney-based landscape designers Secret Gardens.


A heritage apartment and a chic beach side location. Ocean hues lead to light filled spaces. Contemporary furniture and art deco detailing. A sophisticated aesthetic by Sydney-based interior design firm Studio Quarters.

A modern A-frame cabin

Posted on Tue, 7 Apr 2020 by KiM

For the moment city living is working for me…. But give me a cabin in the woods, and a modernized 1974 A-frame at that, and I think I could make the switch quite easily. Maybe just for weekends so I could enjoy the best of both worlds? Sounds like the perfect plan 🙂 This stunner is located 1.5 hours outside of San Francisco, designed by Studio PLOW.

A retirement dream house in California

I could definitively see myself retiring in a place like this. The homeowners of this Calistoga, CA residence are a very lucky couple! What a beautiful setting to spend your days while NOT working (or enduring a seemingly endless pandemic). By Geremia Design.
