Vintage charm in a 1930’s home in London

Posted on Sun, 27 Oct 2019 by KiM

This 1930’s semi-detached, 6 bedroom home in London is something I can definitively get behind as it is filled with some of my favourite things. Mid-century vintage furnishings, an epic plant wall, crittall windows, ballsy floral stair carpet and dreamy tile bathrooms. Available as a location home via Shoot Factory.

It’s no surprise we love New York based Aussie expat interior designer Tali Roth. We are constantly drawn to her chic, urban interiors with their emphasis on low clean lines, stylish comfort and fab art. Throw in layered textures and a restrained palette enlivened by pops of colour and this Howard St apartment is ticking all my boxes.

A Gardener’s Bothy in Gunton Park

Far from the basic shelters built for farm labourers on large estates this bothy was the charming home of interior designer John Tanner. Maximalist and traditional in style the tiny cottage shows that small space living does not need to be pared back and sterile. Beautiful, individual and dramatic.

Care for a drink?

Posted on Fri, 16 Aug 2019 by midcenturyjo

For a girl who can never keep wine around long enough to store properly can we talk about this cellar by Studio Gorman? We know there must be some treasures on those shelves because it’s hidden behind a secret door. A fabulous rustic cavern for quaffing only the best.

“Chinampa” is the name given to the floating gardens used for cultivation by the Aztecs. It’s also the name of a one-bedroom 58ft widebeam canal boat on London’s Regent Canal. That’s right I’m real estate stalking a London canal boat and why not? It’s a wonderful mix of vintage and bespoke, romantic and stylish. I might not dream of running away to the high seas but I could very easily settle into this small and beautifully formed home afloat. Link here while it lasts.
