Chalet Vieux Valet Verbier

Posted on Tue, 2 Feb 2016 by KiM

Last week marked 9 years of this blog’s existence. It has been a long yet very fun 9 years I have to admit, but after all the hours upon hours upon HOURS of blog research it seems to take alot to REALLY get me excited about a home these days. While getting this post ready, I was so damn excited about it I wanted to crank my tunes, jump up and dance on my desk. This chalet designed by Marianne Tiegen is going on my list of top 5 favourite homes I have ever featured. It is a truly magical blend of rustic, industrial and mid-century styles….all the best rolled into one.

Stalking where I’ve been before

I’m stalking a house I’ve featured before, the Balmain House by Fox Johnston, only this time I think I like the real estate photos better. The house seems to have mellowed, grown into its modern extension. Great to see a floor plan. Link here while it lasts.

La Micheline

Posted on Wed, 27 Jan 2016 by midcenturyjo

It’s Wednesday. Hump day. Time for a virtual getaway to the Ardennes region of Belgium, to La Micheline, an old railway station now a holiday home set amongst meadows. If the impressive renovation and rebuild using bluestone, rough hewn wood and concrete isn’t enough to get your design juices running there’s even an old railway line with trolleys. The gîte is the creation of architectural photographers Anne and Jean-Luc Laloux and is a sister property to La Classe which we featured here.

Stalking in the same street part 1

Posted on Fri, 22 Jan 2016 by midcenturyjo

First stalking of the year and I’m excited. (Beats chest. Bellows loudly. Frightens neighbour’s children.) I’m in Rozelle, Sydney and but it’s not just one home I’m stalking. It’s two. Two houses, same suburb, same street, separated by scant meters. I’m partial to both, can’t afford either but my love affair with small heritage cottages with architect extensions continues. First the sandstone house. Link here while it lasts.
