Stalking architects at work and play

Posted on Tue, 23 Oct 2018 by midcenturyjo

Still real estate stalking in Sydney and I have found a property that is both commercial and residential. Live work perfection. What else would you expect from one of Australia’s leading architectural firms Smart Design Studio? Link here while it lasts.

 

 

A historic, modern farmhouse

Posted on Fri, 19 Oct 2018 by midcenturyjo

A 19th century sandstone farmhouse a few hours outside Sydney undergoes a renovation but it’s not a cheesy, chintzy Victorian time capsule that emerges from the builder’s dust. No. It’s a modern farmhouse, honest, sympathetic, a calm respite from the city rat race. Sophisticated in its simplicity yet true to its roots. Capertee Valley Cottage by Studio Esteta.


Kitchen love

Posted on Mon, 1 Oct 2018 by midcenturyjo

A beautiful 1900’s sandstone villa in Adelaide has been given a new lease on life by Melbourne-based interior designers Heartly. The new kitchen sits simply within the extension. Practical and family friendly does not preclude the luxury of stone and American oak. A nod to the age of the house is found in the streamlined shaker cabinets and the newly exposed stone. A mudroom and new bathroom complete the renovation.

Fluid stone

Posted on Wed, 19 Sep 2018 by midcenturyjo

French designer Mathieu Lehanneur is a magician. Who else can conjure up liquid marble, ripples in stone? At least that is how it seems. It’s art. It’s design.  Concept versus reality, poetry versus science. No limits. Just let your imagination run away to his marble bedroom in the Hotel de la Monnaie for AD Intérieurs 2017.

 

Farmhouse in Palamós

Posted on Mon, 17 Sep 2018 by midcenturyjo

Original materials, historical features (the towers date back to the 16th century), a mix of antiques and a bold contemporary touches. I love the charm. I love the fun. I love the careful consideration that has gone into the restoration of this Spanish farmhouse by London-based interior designer Ana Engelhorn.
