Cottonwood Farm

Posted on Mon, 24 Mar 2014 by midcenturyjo

Please, please, pretty please can I go to Cottonwood Farm? Right now? Do not pass go, do not collect $200? I’m exhausted. I think it’s Monday. I spent one day in bed and the rest of the long previous days at my new venture (more of that to come soon I hope). I think I deserve a fantasy break. In real life fabulous but even in my dreams pretty darn good. 61 private acres below a World Heritage National Park, stylish cottage, peace and quiet. Bliss. Ah! if only….

Vintage chic

I adore this London home featured on The Socialite Family. It belongs to jewelry designer Emma Cassi and her family. There is nothing more cozy and inviting than a home filled with well-worn treasures. And in this case they’re so well-curated that the result is pure eye candy. (Photos by Constance Gennari)

The fisherman’s cottage

Posted on Mon, 17 Mar 2014 by midcenturyjo

I couldn’t help myself. I had to revisit the generalist one more time. A 1940s waterfront cottage, an architect and a desire to recycle, reuse and celebrate the found instead of a rip it down, slap up something mega and new. My type of home filled with memories and little treasures. A place for family and friends to live life, share love and renew spirits. To find out who and why and where and how head to the generalist here.

Rooigem House

Posted on Thu, 20 Feb 2014 by midcenturyjo

Like a series of stage sets or a a ramble of rooms filled with one man’s dreams and treasure Rooigem House in Sint-Kruis, Belgium is the creation of antiques dealer and designer Jean-Phillipe Demeyer. The medieval manor with moat has been lovingly restored and now is home and business. The riot of colour and pattern and OTT pieces make it a sensory delight. Imagine visiting in real life. Where to look. What to touch.

The Oyster Catcher

Posted on Tue, 18 Feb 2014 by midcenturyjo

We have all seen (and fallen in love with) shots of photographer Paul Massey‘s Mousehole, Cornwall home but did you know you can rent it for a holiday stay? And look at the view! Oh my! My trouble would be that I wouldn’t want to give the keys back. The Oyster Catcher via Unique Home Stays.
