Neutral sophistication

Posted on Tue, 6 Nov 2018 by midcenturyjo

Why am I drawn to neutral colour palettes at the moment? I used to be such a colour junkie. Love the restrained use of colour in this project by Los Angeles based JDP Interiors. The home is an effortless mix of old and new, timeless and bold. The secret to this fabulous neutral scheme is the use of texture and lots of natural light. Think earthy, simple but well crafted pieces.

Mountainside Residence

Posted on Tue, 6 Nov 2018 by midcenturyjo

A striking white farmhouse set against a backdrop of low misty clouds. Interiors that are timeless and understated, full of texture and natural textiles. Inside outside living with my new design crush, brick floors. I love the wide verandah with its stone fireplace but I’m scheming how I can achieve a garden room at my own home. It’s just perfect. Countryside chic by Cape Town based interior designer Gregory Mellor.

Urban classicism in Roman

Posted on Fri, 2 Nov 2018 by midcenturyjo

Stunning! The view and the apartment. But as much as I’m blown away by the history outside the windows it’s the interior that has me swooning. Think classicism meets contemporary values, new and old balanced just so but with a slight misalignment for the brivido, the frisson, the thrill. The beautiful old bones, the stark beauty of the white walls, the bespoke furniture, the light all create this urban classic by Rome-based architect and designer Stefano Dorata.

A 2 bedroom apartment in a London Victorian

Posted on Sun, 28 Oct 2018 by KiM

I think I should start calling Sundays “Victorian Sundays” 🙂 This is a 2 bedroom, 1500 sq ft ground floor apartment in a Victorian in London with a mix of dark and light rooms, a gorgeous bathroom and a lush 79ft back garden.  Stunning details like herringbone wood floors, a stained glass front door, ornate moldings and french doors out to the garden. LOVE. Via Shoot Factory.
