Villa Castelluccio

Posted on Fri, 11 Sep 2020 by KiM

Villa Castelluccio is a restored villa located in the heart of Puglia, Italy, set within 5 acres of olive groves. Designer Andrew Trotter was brought on to assist with renovations and interior design of this beautiful home which is available as a rental vacation property. Sign me up!!! This would be such a relaxing, calming space to spend time in, while enjoying the traditional Puglian architecture.

Salted caramel

Posted on Tue, 1 Sep 2020 by midcenturyjo

From terracotta tiles to rustic beams, from smooth plaster walls to rough stone Villa Bonazza by Florence-based interior designers Matos-Herzog is a timeless beauty. Classic yet contemporary, warm and inviting yet strong and rugged. As for the colour palette think salted caramels. Rich, smooth and unctuous. By the way Bonazza is “looker” in Italian.

 

 

Butterfly House

Posted on Wed, 19 Aug 2020 by KiM

I cannot imagine living this close to the ocean. How incredible would these views be in person?!?! This is the iconic Butterfly House originally designed by Frank Wynkoop in 1950. Many bland renovations since, Jamie Bush was hired on by the current homeowners to give it a total restoration with major upgrades to bring it back to its organic roots. What a dream home!

Plaster and stone

Posted on Fri, 31 Jul 2020 by midcenturyjo

An extension at the back of this Bellevue Hill Federation House and the renovation of the home’s bathrooms saw interior design duo Handelsmann + Khaw explore Mediterranean themes, texture or should I say patina and a casual elegance. Think tumbled marble tiles, terrazzo and tadelakt. And then there is the drama of that bathroom overlooking the garden. Beautiful!

Now I know what’s inside the darkness. It’s a shell pink dressing room. Artist in Residence by Anna Standish.
