Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 23 Jan 2021 by midcenturyjo

It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Ateliê Flávia Madeira, São Paulo by Felipe Hess.

This inner Sydney terrace house celebrates the play between old and new. Four flats were stitched together with a new extension while minimalist interiors breathed life into the reunited space. Rising through it all, beckoning with its sinuous curves a statement staircase. Hargrave Terrace Paddington by CM Studio.

I would give anything to be able to spend summers in a place like this. How beautiful!!! Faraway Farm is a remote five bedroom rural farmhouse in Carmarthenshire accessible only by foot. (or a 4×4!) Approached down a mile long rough farm track where a vehicle can be parked up, and then on foot across the pedestrian bridge over the ford towards the house. The house is completely off-grid so power is limited. The interiors are dark and atmospheric and for a new renovation appear to be completely authentic. There are log burners in the house, open fireplaces, a mixture of stone on the ground floor and wood floors on the first and second floors. Available as a location home via Shoot Factory.

A 17th century farmhouse in Provence

Posted on Thu, 3 Dec 2020 by KiM

This is one of the most beautiful homes on one of the most beautiful properties I have ever seen. This 100-acre working farm is tucked against the Luberon mountains in southern France. Surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, Ken Fulk repaired the 17th-century farmhouse and revitalized the grand potager, bringing the property up to date as a peaceful getaway for long family vacations. Each room in the main house, which includes the former bergerie (now a dining room), a wine cave, two kitchens, living rooms, a library and eight bedrooms, has been furnished with a transportive mix of antique and modern pieces.

Casa Michelena

Posted on Tue, 24 Nov 2020 by midcenturyjo

Iconic Mexican, Spanish Colonial and vintage European. It’s a heady mix perfect for the renovation and redesign of the 18th-century stone mansion Casa Michelenao in Morelia, Mexico by Paris-based interior designer Luis Laplace. Bakery, cafe, a bar and bookstore on the ground floor with private living above. My favourite part? So hard to choose but I think I’ve fallen in love with the colonnades and courtyards.
