Living small – Alan Chu

Posted on Sun, 11 Aug 2013 by KiM

I found this compact São Paulo apartment designed by Brazilian architect Alan Chu and had to share. It’s got micro square footage but Alan made such great use of limited space. A single wall was converted into storage for both the kitchen and living room, which kept the majority of those spaces free for basic furnishings. I think he and the owner like subway tiles. 🙂 The spiral staircase is compact and a gorgeous architectural feature. Overall, a really cool space. (Via Casa Vogue Brasil)

September issue of Inside Out

Posted on Wed, 7 Aug 2013 by midcenturyjo

What can we expect from the latest issue of Inside Out magazine? Fabulous homes and inspiration of course. Like the home of jewellery designer Megan Perkins. Or should I say her parents’ home. That’s right. She moved back in with her parents but when your oldies have such an amazing house (her dad actually built it) where’s the problem?! Writer/stylist Natalie Walton and photographer Chris Warnes of Warnes & Walton take us inside this stunning family space.

Aussie readers will of course be heading to the newsagents to pick up their copy out today. (That’s if you don’t already subscribe.) Don’t fret if you aren’t in Australia though because you can read along on ZinioGoogle Play and the Apple Newsstand!

Inside Out is out

Posted on Wed, 12 Jun 2013 by midcenturyjo

There are the special little things in life that fill a slow rainy day (or a crazy busy day why won’t it SLOW DOWN… ooops sorry). Little things that make me happy. A good magazine is one of them. And Inside Out is a great magazine. I always get a wee bit over excited when an email from managing editor Lee Tran Lam is sitting in my box. Do we want to see a house? Yes please!

“It’s from our new Jul/Aug issue and it’s of a makeover of a Dutch farmhouse. The revamp included lots of upcycling – and in fact, the floor of the top storey is made of old cheeseboards! The styling is by Studio Viva Vida of The Netherlands and the photography is by Jean-Marc Wullschleger.”

Yeah! There are even pictures that didn’t make it into the magazine after the jump. Bonus! Aussie readers will of course be heading to the newsagents to pick up their copy out today.

Hôtel Paradis

Posted on Wed, 9 Jan 2013 by midcenturyjo

Inspired by the über cool (or should that be très cool 😉 interiors of the new Hôtel Paradis in Paris. With a quirky mix of vintage, midcentury and modern, the rooms in the 3 star boutique hotel designed by Chzon are layered with colour and pattern. Funky and fun and very reasonably priced. After all staying in style shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg. I’ll take the room with the view thanks!
