Stalking 2

Posted on Tue, 2 Apr 2019 by midcenturyjo

Stalking this time in the Melbourne suburb of Albert Park and a development of an old commercial stables building and the Victorian era house at the other end of the block. Between is a modern addition that provides walkways, internal courtyard and kitchen dining with master bedroom above. It’s mix of hero spaces and intimate rooms, weathered old bricks and hard edged stone, glass and steel. The design is by Robson Rak Architects. Link here while it lasts.

Darlinghurst Terrace

Posted on Mon, 25 Feb 2019 by midcenturyjo

Take a narrow inner city Sydney terrace house. Strip it to its stone walls and carefully construct a minimalist dream home. A limited colour palette of black and white tempered by sandstone walls and blonde timbers provides the perfect stage for statement furniture pieces and lighting. What could be stark instead is full of beautiful vignettes. Darlinghurst Terrace by Tom Mark Henry.

The Carriage House

Bucolic bliss with just the slightest touch of boho in Bedford, NY by Virginia Tupker Interiors. Tupkert, who has worked for House & Garden, Vogue and Vogue Living has a passion for textiles which she uses deftly as a counterfoil to the rustic stone and old boards in this old carriage house. It’s rough yet refined, cosy yet chic. The perfect country getaway without the country kitsch.

Rustic elegance in Mallorca

Posted on Fri, 18 Jan 2019 by midcenturyjo

What is it about the mix of rustic simplicity and elegant living that is so appealing? Think stone, white washed walls and old wooden beams as the stage for an enviable collection of art and furniture, objet d’art and curiosities. Pops of bright colour energise the scheme and though everything is beautiful nothing is “precious”. Casa Mallorca by Spanish interior designer Ramón García Jurado.

Mark Ashby Design

Posted on Mon, 10 Dec 2018 by midcenturyjo

This beautiful stone home perched above Austin was remodelled by local firm Mark Ashby Design working with clients who “were inspired by a European mid-century modern aesthetic, while still acknowledging their love for old world New England style”. The result is not only beautiful and functional but the attention to detail and fine finishes were paramount.
