The Corner Store

Posted on Fri, 22 May 2020 by midcenturyjo

“Care was taken to use quite humble materials, sympathetic to the utilitarian nature of the original building, and so a limited palette of raw and white brick, teak coloured wood and natural slate was repeated throughout the building. The original doorways made of old weathered pine – all of different sizes and heights – were retained all the way down the spine of the building to honour the original builders. At all times it was a case of ‘doing as much as necessary but as little as possible’. This project is a good example of creating a most liveable home with all the necessary amenities, and then some, within a modest footprint, using basic materials but nevertheless creating a feeling of richness through the layering of history, texture and space.”

A minimal intervention for maximum impact. Think insertions rather than demolition and a rebuild, opening up to light and ventilation, respect for the fabric of the old shop and the heritage area. The Corner Store by Amanda Lynn Design and Maison Co.


Mid Century Modern

Posted on Tue, 26 Nov 2019 by midcenturyjo

Interior designer and stylist Simone Haag thinks of a house as a blank page on which to write a story and if that’s the case then she has penned a tale of love and warmth using texture and subtle colour, carefully collected furniture and objets d’art when she designed the renovation of her own family home. It may not be large in size but it is certainly big on style, retaining its mid century roots, celebrating retro riffs all while embracing modern living. I think I’m in love … with the house, with the house!

Modern simplicity

Posted on Tue, 15 Oct 2019 by midcenturyjo

Float with me down the stairs or across the garden paths. Stay awhile by the fire pit or share a drink with friends in the convivial courtyard. Feathery grasses float and simple columns of trees reach towards the sky. A stylish, contemporary garden with a hint of mid century by Nashville-based Daigh Rick Landscape Architects.


I’m still real estate strolling scrolling in the Sydney suburb of Randwick and I’ve found a stylish semi-detached home with an open plan, contemporary extension. The video will definitely help you fall in love with this inner city home just minutes from the beach. Love the light that flows into the living areas, the long horizontal window, the small but well formed courtyard garden. Link here while it lasts.

what a day yesterday 🙂🙃🙂🙃 I think it’ll be best to stay in my room today or maybe a padded room for safety. But seriously I can’t move after chasing a chicken and 3 dogs around the neighborhood. I’m bruised and scratched and my muscles feel like jello (thanks autoimmune) – My chiropractor is going to love this story 😀 – I hope you all have a normal nice relaxing day!!!✨ . . . . . #livingroomideas #lonnyliving #inmydomaine #ispyraddesign #mytradhome #hgtvhome #kinfolkhome #darlinghome #rshome #ggathome #apartmenttheraphy #currenthomeview #gofinding #mysmphome #elledecor #interieurjunkie #smallspaceliving #mycollecteddecor #showemyourstyled #rspets #dspetstyle #dogsindecor #dtipetsonfurniture #dogsathome #hometohave #softminimalism #interiorbloggers

I haven’t popped pampas grass in a shot for a while so just in case you were missing it – here you go! 😍🌾 In other news, I’ve been watching the weather forecast like a hawk lately and can now tentatively (see what I did there?!) declare it good enough for camping!🏕 So we’re dusting off our @soulpadtents bell tent later in the week and heading down to Brighton. Prepare yourselves for unapologetic glamping spam! The question is – do I take some pampas grass with us?! 😂😂😂😂 . . . . . #interiorandliving #sofa #cockapoo #bedroom #bedroomdecor #pampasgrass #pampas #fairylights #twinklelights #myhomevibe #myhometoinspire #mydogiscutest #dtipetsonfurniture #interior_delux #pursuepretty #interior_design #sashwindows #interier #interieur #interieurinspiratie #interieurstylist #interieur123 #interior4all #interiorinspo #sodomino #finditstyleit

It’s baby Friday and I’m still loving this view.🤩 Taking out the fireplace and bookshelves totally transformed this room. Still hate that chair. But love the guy who sits in it. #compromise . That’s all I got today—I’m about to lose my voice and I’ve got to teach the K-5 set today. Wish me luck🤦🏻‍♀️🙏 I do wish I could trade spaces with my sweet pupper today💗🐶 . Hoping your day is looking better than mine!🤞🏼😉 . . . . . . . . #mywestelm #myeclecticmix #hunkerhome #dtipetsonfurniture #doingneutralright #neutralhome #modernbohemian #bohemianmodern #myinterior #inmydomaine #dslooking #apartmenttherapy #bloglovinhome #simplystyleyourspace #beckiowensfeature

We took Winston to the vets yesterday for an ear check up. When we arrived we discovered they were filming for the CBBC show the Pets Factor. Obvs they wanted Winston in it. (mainly because of his hair I think). So the whole visit was filmed and the hubs and I had to do some awkward interviews. Our moment of fame awaits! . . . #apartmenttherapy #cornerofmyhome #pocketofmyhome #interior_delux #interiormilk #interior4all #interior4you #sassyhomestyle #sahstylists #luxuryinteriorsonabudget #mycreativeinterior #finditstyleit #stopandstaredecor #gallerywall #gallerywalldecor #gallerywallhashtag #eclecticallycool #livingroominspo #bohoismyjam #scandiboho #moreismoredecor #maximalistinteriors #rockmystylishhome #ihavethisthingwithgreen #dtipetsonfurniture #aadogs

My sister sent me a rare photo with all 3 of her cats in it. Zoe, Spencer and Carl chilling in her living room.

Some from me. Mimin sitting on the bills I needed to pay. Semi-feral Bernie watching for birds in the dining room window. Semi-feral Frankie sunning himself on my desk.
