La Bergerie de Nano

Posted on Thu, 6 Sep 2012 by KiM

I’d like to introduce you to a unique bed & breakfast, that happens to be a renovated 18th century sheepfold located in the heart of Provence. The rustic beauty of La Bergerie de Nano is breathtaking. I don’t really understand where the idea for the kitchen came from but I adore the rest of this stunning piece of history. 

Marie-Laure Helmkampf

When I stumbled upon the portfolio of interior designer Marie-Laure Helmkampf I instantly fell in love. Located in the South of France, Marie-Laure has designed some spectacular rustic homes that are so incredibly dreamy. Her neutral colour stories, natural fabrics and modern mixed with classic furnishings and fixtures is perfection. I could live in any of these spaces exactly as they are.

I am in love with this house. The rustic/modern mix is gorgeous. Those beamed ceilings and hardwood floors are phenomenal. Yes, I could easily and happily live here. Forever. (Via Le case di Elixìr)

Stalking old stone in Sydney

Posted on Thu, 30 Aug 2012 by midcenturyjo

A tiny 1840 colonial terrace in Darlinghurst, Sydney. All that wonderful old sandstone. I just want to run my fingers across its rough hewn surface. My love of old houses continues and I always squeal when I find an old beauty when I’m real estate stalking. And the interiors? In my fantasy (there is always a story that I concoct about the unknown sellers) the house is cool bachelor pad. Rough hewn and a little retro with golden brown tones and an intriguing history. The house. I’m talking about the house. The bachelor? Hmmm…… Link here while it lasts.

Antonio Virga

Posted on Mon, 27 Aug 2012 by midcenturyjo

Essence of form and function. Beauty in the purity of design. Pared back and understated but high on style and impact. Minimalist in a rustic context. Clean lined and spare within the historic. It is about domesticity distilled to its simplest essence and placed carefully within the existing character of the building. Italian born, Paris based architect Antonio Virga.
