Masculine and marble

Posted on Fri, 3 Jul 2020 by midcenturyjo

Floor to ceiling carrara marble, a deep soaker tub next to a gas fire place, dark rich walnut against the bling of gold. It’s luxurious with a hint of retro and a definite masculine feel. Timeless and sophisticated. Bathroom dreams from Colorado based Studio Thomas.

Within the refurbished château/farmhouse of designer Pierre Yovanovitch in Fabrègues, Provence is the marriage of rustic and sophistication. Plasterwork, stone and wood form the backdrop to modern and vintage furnishings and artwork. Each room more beautiful than the next.

A fine balancing act

It’s all about balance. A balance between crisp and modern and rustic and weathered. Rough versus smooth. A hint of scandi with a dose of Aussie. Light versus dark. Formally structured and sensuous and tactile. A fine balancing act indeed. Hunters Hill House by Handelsmann + Khaw.

Minimalist detail

Posted on Tue, 12 May 2020 by midcenturyjo

“A period home’s minimalistic redesign and extension focusing on supreme detailing, exquisite materiality and a richly layered palette. The interior architecture celebrates clean geometries and a boldness of form. A restrained use of colour punctuates a monochrome palette while bespoke joinery and selected fixtures show a dedication to craftsmanship.”

A symphony of stone, a masterclass in detailing. Toorak House by Melbourne-based Lucy Bock Design Studio.

A 1700’s period townhouse in London

Posted on Sun, 10 May 2020 by KiM

A bit of period magic for your Sunday viewing pleasure. This early 1700’s townhouse in Spitalfields, London is everything you could dream of in a home from that era. Left virtually untouched, as it should be, it is a step back in time with old floorboards, stone, brick, shutters, windows, beadboard, moldings and all the good things. Available as a location home via Shoot Factory.
