A delicate balancing act

Posted on Tue, 27 Jul 2021 by midcenturyjo

Old and new. Soft and subdued in private areas,  luxe and dramatic in public spaces. Antique and bespoke with an emphasis on ongoing patina of materials and the pattern of stone. Carefully curated and but playful. John Street by Sydney-based Phoebe Nicol.

Casa Jumanji

Posted on Mon, 26 Jul 2021 by KiM

I am head over heels in love with this home designed by Barcelona & Menorca based design firm Quintana Partners. If I ever had the opportunity to move to a city with such beautiful, centuries-old architecture I would want to experience it just like this. Jumanji’s main reference is the Bauhaus school, which dates back to Germany in 1919 and was very famous during the 20’s, for its modernity and rational ideology. What we wanted with this residence is that the client feels like in the family house inherited from his grandparents, keeping the original furniture of that time. It is a tribute to the owner of the house, who is German, and with this renovation we wanted to move his roots to Menorca with the Quintana’s merger.

A backyard oasis

Posted on Sun, 25 Jul 2021 by KiM

I have backyards on the brain as my husband and I continue to work on ours with seemingly never ending projects. Yesterday I finally painted out our white garage/shed and the difference is incredible (you can check it out here). I love this backyard with lots of hardscaping elements which is what we did alot of in our backyard to keep the maintenance (and watering) down. This is perfect for a family and entertaining.

Luxury reuse

Posted on Fri, 23 Jul 2021 by midcenturyjo

Alteration and change of use to this heritage listed commercial space has resulted in two levels of luxury loft like living.  Think old posts and beams meet marble, linen fluttering at old windows looking out onto the city, beautiful new details in an old colonial structure.

Casa Sa Mar

Welcome to Casa Sa Mar – a ”señorial” townhouse in the center of Sóller, Mallorca, beautifully and carefully restored from its 1896 origins. 450 sqm, ceiling heights of up to 5m and a large courtyard with a pool, with walking distance to the sea, mountains and everything that the beautiful village of Sóller has to offer. Created by Durietz Design & Development. Intricate tile floors, an adorned olive wood parquet, crystal ball staircase ornaments, a solid piece marble sink, and much more – all of the original details have been kept and carefully restored. What a stunner!
