Living in a tower

Posted on Wed, 1 Mar 2017 by KiM

Forget those cabins, how about this 70 ft stone tower in the middle of a forest!! OMG this is absolutely incredible. I could live here forever and ever. The end. (Located in Meriwether County, GA, designed by Summerour Architects)

I am sitting here blogging listening to city busses whizzing by, helicopters landing, ambulance sirens (I live across from a hospital) and the kids next door screaming and I need to remind myself why I love city living. Especially when there are beautiful, rustic dwellings like this around where all you hear are the sounds of crickets and birds chirping. I couldn’t decide between these two so you get both.

New with old

Posted on Mon, 24 Oct 2016 by midcenturyjo

The renovation and extension of this Beverley Hills home included the incorporation of elements from a dismantled 19th century wood barn as well as a new entrance and landscaping. The old beams and siding add warmth to the expansive rooms. I love the marriage of the new build with the old barn wood, the mid century feel of the furnishings working back against the aged timbers and white walls and the beautiful dry climate garden.

Summer feels

This beautifully renovated home located in Ciutadella de Minorca, Spain makes for an ideal spot to spend the hot summers. Bright whites, tile and stained concrete floor, rustic architecture and casual furnishings have me wanting to pack my bags. This no-nonsense, leave-your-flip-flops-on decor is so inviting. *sigh* Via Micasa.  

Finca Las Tenadas

Posted on Mon, 9 May 2016 by midcenturyjo

I think it’s a first. I honestly believe we have never featured an events complex on the blog. It wasn’t a hard decision though when the space was designed by Isabel López-Quesada. Just 15 minutes from Madrid, Finca Las Tenadas is a series of barns beautifully redefined by López-Quesada and landscape designer Fernando Martos. A fairytale setting for fabulous functions don’t you think? Makes me almost want to get married again… oops I mean renew my vows.
