Modern farmhouse

Posted on Tue, 13 Jul 2021 by midcenturyjo

This Silicon Valley house by Landed Interiors is inspired by modern homes with Shaker simplicity and classically casual interiors. With its cheerful colour palette and much-loved art collection, the home is the perfect mix of Cali cool and down-home farmhouse modern.

From its elegant orangery style window and high ceilings in the living room to the cosy kitchen, from the verdant garden back through to the sweet and most likely hard-working scullery come laundry this London maisonette in Brondesbury Road has stolen my heart. Now if only I could move to London during the pandemic (my whole country is isolating from the world) I’d make it mine. For sale via UK historical home estate agency and sister agency to The Modern House Inigo.

Between the forest and the sea

“Nestled between forest, dune and sea our cottage style Starwood Residence is the manifestation of our design-minded client’s vision for a home that sustains a lifestyle rooted in family and flow … the house was stripped to its bones and lovingly brought back to life, with reclaimed French terracotta hexagon tile the stage upon which clay finished walls, rouge marble and custom joinery interplay with a quietly eclectic harmony of furniture, art and accessories.”

A mind set of reuse, recycle and repurpose has created a home that is about comfort and sustainability. A wonderfully laid back house in Bloemendaal, The Netherlands by Avenue Design Studio.

Colourful country home

Posted on Mon, 5 Jul 2021 by midcenturyjo

“We took a historic home that had seen better days and reworked windows, floor plans, raised roofs, and thoroughly renovated the kitchen and baths with a mix of architectural salvage and ingenuity. Our goal was to create a comfortable and cozy home inspired by the British countryside and Colonial America. We sourced an Aga oven, designed Shaker-inspired cabinetry, fabricated custom furniture, and decorated it in a moody palette, and layered old-world textiles.”

I have such a thirst for colour at the moment and this 1850’s cottage in New York state is like a big glass of cool cool water. A wonderful renovation that respects the building’s past but provides contemporary family living. Pound Ridge Farm by White Arrow.
