A beach house by Adelaide Bragg

Posted on Tue, 12 Nov 2013 by midcenturyjo

A casually elegant family retreat at Palm Beach, Sydney by Adelaide Bragg & Associates. Hues of blue and green like the ever changing ocean, organic textures and crisp white finishes update this 1950’s home. Beautiful, relaxed and classic.


The landing library

Posted on Mon, 21 Oct 2013 by midcenturyjo

A new kitchen and a staircase to the next floor. A simple design request with a fabulous outcome. Melbourne based Venn Architects believe space is what you make it. Their clever use of the transition up the staircase as a library is elegant and functional with a wonderful sense of space and light. No longer a kitchen diner. Perhaps a kitchen library?

My inspiration stash – round 2

Posted on Fri, 18 Oct 2013 by KiM

For years this has been and continues to be my favourite backyard of all time. I am determined to have this setup one day. EXACTLY as in the photo but with different chairs. And cats roaming instead of a dog. (via Dwell)

I can’t get this out of my head either. It is the definition of an outdoor room. Simple yet perfect. (via Kennedy Nolan Architects)

I used to be sold on the idea of having a dining space that doubled as a library, but now I am even more smitten with book storage in hallways. (via The Design Files)

Cutest bathroom design. I need this in my life. (via Incorporated)

Another dream bathroom. The materials make me weak in the knees. I want my whole house to look like this. (via Urbis)

Beds are boring for the most part. This one isn’t. Great DIY project. (via MilK)

Another interesting bed set-up. I would totally use this as a lounge area. Gorg. (via STUDIO OINK)

LOVE this lighting. Would be fab down a long hallway. (via Richard Lindvall)

I am still obsessed with this simple lighting. Imagine several of these over the countertop of a long narrow kitchen. (via Tribe Studio Architects)

I want to make stuff everywhere with conduit. (via Sanna Lindberg)

Crate madness

Posted on Sun, 13 Oct 2013 by KiM

Happy Thanksgiving to all our Canadian readers! I am beyond excited to head to my parents later today and eat my face off. 🙂 Speaking of giving thanks, I know I should be thankful that I have a home (among many other things) but WOW – I’d rather live in this funky loft! I have an obsession with vintage storage items – particularly wooden crates, and I have never seen anything like this before. It’s crate madness!!!! They’re EVERYWHERE!!! They’re makeshift walls, a kitchen island base, a bed, night stands, a coffee table, sofas, a bathroom vanity….. (via Le case di Elixìr) **OOPS – Jo already blogged it here but these photos are much better)

Canal House

Posted on Mon, 16 Sep 2013 by midcenturyjo

Gracefully balanced and restrained this apartment is part of a 100-year-old building located on one of Amsterdam’s most beautiful 17th century canals. Light filled and layered. An historic shell and a modern interior, expansive and cosy. The best of both worlds. Past and present. Beauty and function. Canal House HG by Powerhouse Company.
