A Haussmanian revisited

Posted on Wed, 20 Jan 2021 by midcenturyjo








French designer Laurence Simoncini wanted to retain the spirit of this Haussmanian apartment while creating a dramatic new space. Oversaturated colours, black lacquered doors and windows, contrasts between matt and shiny, raw and refined plus an eclectic mix of furniture breathe new life into the historic rooms.

A restored and modernized Brooklyn brownstone

Posted on Fri, 15 Jan 2021 by KiM

It’s been a minute since I shared a Brooklyn brownstone on the blog. More often these days it’s London Victorians that I come across that make my heart skip a beat but the home of interior designer Gillian Dubin reminded me how fabulous brownstones can be – especially with this much of its original architecture maintained and restored. This home in particular is blowing my mind. From ceilings to floors, the details are beyond incredible. (Photos: Noe DeWitt)
