Simplicity

Posted on Fri, 22 Dec 2017 by midcenturyjo

“There is nothing simple about simplicity. Simplicity is complexity.”

The composition, the texture, the monochromatic palette, the considered choice of pattern, the restraint and careful curation. How deceptively simple and achingly beautiful. Buckhead by Atlanta-based Nancy Braithwaite Interiors.

The curse of orange knotty pine walls

Posted on Mon, 25 Sep 2017 by midcenturyjo

Whenever I’ve been asked what to do with ugly orange-stained knotty pine walls or ceilings I have always had one answer… paint them, paint it all! Sometimes you can’t. You could be renting, you might not have the money or the time to invest in such a big job. Then I came across this log cabin styled by Susan Burns and it was an epiphany. The knotty pine walls and ceilings are the perfect foil for the white furniture and soft furnishings. OK the brick fireplace and some of the floors have been painted but the often overpowering orange wood has definitely been softened by what I’m calling the “white within”. A pretty solution don’t you think?
