A renovated Park Slope brownstone

Posted on Wed, 3 Sep 2014 by KiM

And here I thought my new home had lots of beautiful architectural detail. This Park Slope, NY brownstone renovated by Abelow Sherman Architects has incredible panelling, moldings, stained glass and inlaid hardwood flooring at every turn. I am a bit sad that every single bit of woodwork has been painted (and white, blah). Yes folks, I have turned into ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE! (LOL)

More from Studio MRS

Posted on Thu, 28 Aug 2014 by midcenturyjo

I’m not sure why it is happening. Is it because I’m getting older? Am I just jaded? Maybe fads and trends and “it” rooms are finally exposed as fleeting and flimsy. More and more I am drawn to homes that are an eclectic mix of high and low, found and inherited and carefully saved for pieces. Lived in and loved. Not showy and vulgar. Homes like this one on E 10th St, New York by Studio MRS. The new luxury is taking the time to surround yourself with what you love not what everyone tells you you need.

A coastal vibe with a lovely vintage feel. Calm colours, wonderful collections, relaxed sophistication. A getaway that gets it. A place to escape with family and friends surrounded by the things you love. Sag Harbor house by Manhattan based Studio MRS.

Serene and sophisticated. A timeless marriage of the contemporary and the traditional. Light, dark. Urban and ethnic. Relaxed and refined. I’m drawn into the creative web of interior designer Gillian Khaw. Imagine this first house as a weekend getaway. I’d never leave.

The new traditionalist

Posted on Thu, 27 Feb 2014 by midcenturyjo

English antiques and a stiff upper lip tempered and teased by mid-century classics, fab fabrication and colour, great licks of colour. Play spot the Scandinavian icons, Wegner, Saarinen, Iittala, Josef Frank. The new traditionalist that is Ben Pentreath.
