A magical step-back-in-time

Posted on Tue, 13 Oct 2020 by midcenturyjo

Colourful and quirky, perhaps one could say eccentric. Packed with personality, wit and wonky walls and it’s for sale. The Modern House has all the best properties on its books. A charming Grade II-listed 16th century cottage positioned on Bell Street in Henley-on-Thames. loving brought back to life by The Curious House.

Atelier Vime

Posted on Mon, 12 Oct 2020 by KiM

I have been following Atelier Vime for some time now on Instagram, and it finally dawned on me that I should feature this truly magical French shop/design studio here on the blog. They are a vintage basketry shop and producer of wicker, rattan and rope furniture, located in Vallabrègues in an 18th century hôtel particulier. You would never know their photos were actually “product” shots as the architectural details and styling of the spaces is consistently exemplary.

I love the drama and moodiness of a home that is steeped in history like this beautiful, almost gothic style former painting studio in Cape Cod. Keeping the old wooden beams in their natural state was a smart move here. The dark wood enhances the beautiful shapes and makes this home so cozy and inviting. I could not love this more. Designed by David Cafiero, photos by Stephen Kent Johnson. (Jo featured a barn that I believe is on the property here).

The rough house

You would have a difficult time convincing me there that there was anything more beautiful than exposed wood beams, trim-free plaster walls, old-world tiled and raw wood floors. This home in Limburg, The Netherlands, is breathtaking. Interior design by Niels Maier. Photos by Thomas De Bruyne.

A house in the country

From the master of the mix, interior designer and dealer Serge Castella comes a countryside residence that is chic and sophisticated while being bucolic and relaxed. A pastoral poem and an ode to collectable cool.
