Trad with a twist

Posted on Thu, 6 Feb 2020 by midcenturyjo

“Our distinctive gardens focus on living sculptural features: the contrasting texture and foliage of varying plant combinations set within a structural footprint, to create a balance between architecture and nature.”

Just the way I like it. Trad with a twist. That place where the fantasy pushes the staid boundaries of tradition just a little, where classical meets quirky. Dive into the portfolio of Melbourne-based Jane Jones Landscapes and let your imagination wander.

Traditional + youthful

The older I get the more I find myself appreciated classic furniture, whether it be mid-century, art deco or more traditional. This home (of actress Jordana Brewster) in Los Angeles was designed by Chiara de Rege and most of the shopping for the items was done in the home of Jordana’s parents (you can read more about that in this Architectural Digest feature). Who clearly have fabulous taste. I love how the traditional pieces in their surroundings give off a bit of an edgy, youthful vibe.

I thought nothing could be better than a genteel country house by Spanish interior designer Isabel López-Quesada. That is until I realised you could have a genteel country house with a flower room. Room crush!

The mystical qualities of a centuries old home

Posted on Sun, 26 Jan 2020 by KiM

I have imagined for many years of living in a mid century modern home, an industrial loft, and a rustic relic of a home. This would be the rustic relic of my dreams. It is a 16th century oak framed farmhouse 2 hours outside of London, set on 2 acres of wild gardens and meadows, with 7 bedrooms and numerous outbuildings. I could cry this is so beautiful. Available as a location home through Shoot Factory.

In true Sasha Bikoff fashion, she has taken something ordinary and made it extraordinary. Ok, this “Garden State Revival House” in Newark, New Jersey isn’t exactly ordinary but it’s sooooo traditional on the outside that you would never in a million years expect to see rooms painted pink, yellow, green, red, purple, blue, teal, lime. The insanity!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!
