Raspberry ripple

Posted on Mon, 2 Apr 2018 by midcenturyjo

I love raspberries especially when they are not quite ripe.  All the promise of that distinctive red but just a little tart, fresh not cloyingly sweet. Fresh on the palette and in a colour palette. But this is no one note wonder. Colours switch to deep moody greys through to rich deep blues and warming neutrals. Eclectic yet timeless, luxurious yet comfortable, industrial yet glamourous.

Another Paris apartment by Desjeux Delaye

Posted on Wed, 28 Feb 2018 by KiM

I continue to crush on the fabulous Parisian apartments the ladies of Desjeux Delaye have designed. I continue to adore the details and the drama and the addition of colour. This dining room (though I’m unsure why it has a sink) is killer! LOVE that shelving! And the mirror!

Take it as “red”

Posted on Fri, 12 Feb 2016 by midcenturyjo

You can definitely take it as read that I love this modern kitchen by Belgian architects B-Bis. The use of primary colours and plywood to delineate the modern insertions within this historic shell is fun and fresh. Not sure that I could do my makeup in the yellow bathroom though. Perhaps it’s a bachelor pad?

A restaurant for the dogs

Posted on Wed, 21 Oct 2015 by KiM

I LOVE this restaurant by Polish interior design firm 2kul! Restaurant is called Lord and idea of an Investor was to make English type pub in Poland. Name sound quite serious, but we do not want to scary people with too elegant, too luxury place so we invited our good friend artist Joanna Burda, who painted a whole family of aristocratic… dogs – a little less serious 🙂 Dark, dramatic dining rooms have always been a favourite of mine, so imagine some heavy velvet drapes, tufted leather chairs, a blingy chandelier and a huge dog portrait like these – I love that Weimeraner below.

Stalking bright and white

Posted on Mon, 5 Oct 2015 by midcenturyjo

I’m in Paddington Sydney and I’m stalking a warehouse conversion. Bright, white, what a delight! Indoor outdoor living with a relaxed, urban cool vibe. Colour, tick. Mid-mod industrial, tick. City skyline views, tick. Party house, tick. Perfect. Just need the $2.4 million. Oh well. A girl can dream. Link here while it lasts.
