Chasing the dream – the 80’s icon

Posted on Tue, 23 Jul 2019 by midcenturyjo

Dear Mr Bank Manager,

That Sydney terrace house I asked you to let me buy in the last post? I might have changed my mind. As much as I love Victorian architecture I’m a sucker for the 80s and this iconic Ken Woolley designed suburban tower also in Paddington has my name written all over it. I even have the furniture to fit. Please lend me the money. Pretty please?

Sincerely,

Jo

A Georgian style farmhouse

Posted on Sun, 21 Jul 2019 by KiM

Some soothing eye candy for your Sunday viewing pleasure with this to-die-for newly build Georgian style farmhouse in East Sussex, England available as a location home via Shoot Factory. This home boasts a leisure complex including indoor pool, gym, wine cellar and yoga room, a cinema room and library (with secret door!) with grand piano. Landscaped gardens with tennis court and vineyard. Seven bedrooms, most with en-suite bathrooms. Just stunning from the inside out.

Another dreamy villa in blue

I have another villa to share with you with some serious Mediterranean vibes. Blues, greys and white are the colour scheme in this home in Capri by Swiss designer Jorge Cañete. This one has an other-worldly, magical aura that I have come to expect from Jorge’s projects (see here and here for more). Breathtaking.

Contemporary and tactile in Brisbane

Posted on Fri, 5 Jul 2019 by midcenturyjo

It’s an interesting mix, moody master bedroom and a tactile, almost organic bathroom in the lightest shade of grey. Inspired by luxurious Greek villas think sinuous shapes offset by angular joinery,  light bouncing off walls, floating drapes, a calm oasis in a hot, hot city.

A black and white beach side getaway

Posted on Fri, 21 Jun 2019 by midcenturyjo

Two days ago I had us all running away to the spa region of Victoria. We were renting houses and indulging (or should that be overindulging) in the local delights. Today nothing much has changed except the location. We’re off to the coastal wonderland that is Byron Bay in northern New South Wales and I’m not sure about you but I’m staying at one of the Byron Beach Abodes. The Chapel in fact. 100-year old exposed bricks, timber beams, concrete floors and raw steel staircase. A mix of old and new furnishings, vaulted ceiling and dramatic draped curtains, hand-woven carpets and fine linens. Tempting enough?
