Modern in Madrid

Posted on Wed, 15 Sep 2021 by midcenturyjo

The bones may be old but the look is modern. This reworking of a Madrid apartment (with impressive roof terrace reached by the sculptural sweep of a spiral staircase) by interior architect Inés Benavides preserves all the best features of old apartment while ringing in the new. Walls are removed, a modern kitchen is open plan to the living and dining while bright colour and pattern packs a punch.

A Bourgeois home in France

Posted on Tue, 14 Sep 2021 by KiM

This Bourgeois home in Montfort-L’Amaury (the Île-de-France region in north-central France) is 4 floors of gorgeous 20th century furnishings and lighting all with a European flair. Very unique, classic and chic. Designed by d.mesure, photos by Didier Delmas.

Monochrome and texture

Posted on Tue, 7 Sep 2021 by midcenturyjo

Take the monochromatic colour palette of our last house warmed with camel and caramels. Elevate the scheme with texture, texture and more texture. Dabble with the darkside and indulge the comfort cravings. Modern living captured to perfection by Nashville-based April Tomlin Interiors.

“Like a sculptor who lives and works among hundreds of moulds, mallets and chisels. Like a painter who always needs his brushes close at hand to capture the colourful images in his mind’s eye. Like a couturier who receives his clientèle surrounded by bolts of cloth. That’s how Gert Voorjans lives and works in Antwerp.”

Bravo! A triumph of maximalism, visually stunning and not for the faint of heart. Atelier Hors Catégorie by iconic Belgian tastemaker and interior architect Gert Voorhans.

Mid-century modern, an historic building in the Italian city of Vicenza and a bold use of colour. It’s a heady mix especially in the hands of interior architect Giacomo Totti. There is the dignity of the centuries old shell, the lightness of the furniture and the drama of colour all combining to create a fabulously chic apartment.
