A quirky kitchen and living area for midcentury coffee aficionados. Or should that be addicts? What do I love more? The little coffee making area? The midcentury furniture? The mesh wall divider? The retro finishes? No, if I was honest, I must admit that I have a serious case of espresso machine envy. How can someone own that many Atomic coffee machines?

There is nothing more beautiful than black, white and grey. These stunning photos by Swedish photographer Jenny Grimsgärd are proof.

Photos of note

Posted on Tue, 18 Jun 2013 by KiM

When devouring the portfolio of photographer Jonas Ingerstedt the other day, I found a few photos with elements I wanted to take note of. 

I love wood left in its natural state – even plywood. This wall of shelving is so simple. LOVE!

I am a little distracted by the really cool Magis chairs but after wiping off my drool I noticed the rod along the ceiling – awesome minimalist idea for basic lighting. 

And speaking of lighting, I’m still smitten with bare bulb light fixtures, and hanging them in this set-up is really creative. Especially when highlighting objects directly below. 

I wish

Posted on Sat, 15 Jun 2013 by midcenturyjo

I wish I could live in this New York apartment. I wish I could be clean and tidy. I wish my fat labrador didn’t shed hair, that my blind husband didn’t drag dirty fingers along walls as he walks through the space, that I always manage to spill a drop or two of my coffee as I traverse the kitchen. I wish I could live in this white wonderland. White walls, white floors, white and light furniture. I wish that powder room was mine. I could live happily just in that powder room. I wish I didn’t shed hair like my dog. I wish I had a cleaning lady. I wish I lived in this New York apartment.  Sigh… I wish. By Resolution: 4 Architecture.
