Palm Springs boho

Posted on Wed, 3 Jun 2020 by midcenturyjo

The temptation may have been to fall in with the crowd and turn the rundown A-frame in Palm Springs into another homage to mid century and Frank Sinatra cool. Instead interior designer Sarah Sherman Samuel decided that gallons of white paint and a more boho Cali vibe was the way to go. A light filled and perfect family desert getaway.

Working on a Saturday

Slowly but surely, day by day we get closer to taking our lives back. One day if you have to be dragged into work on a Saturday it will help if it looks as stylish as this. P, Johnson Tailors New York by Tamsin Johnson.

Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 9 May 2020 by midcenturyjo

Lock down is slowly being lifted here in Australia. We have been fortunate with just under 7000 cases of COVID-19 and 93 deaths in a country of 25 million. Did I just write that 93 deaths were fortunate? How life has changed for all of us. Through prompt and coordinated action by our Commonwealth and State Governments and with the united cooperation of our population we have come through this crisis and even though our economy is shattered we are starting slowly to rebuild.  Step by small step. Our thoughts are with our brothers and sisters throughout the world especially those who have suffered horrendous death tolls and massive unemployment.

It seems a bit trite to do a post on stylish work places but I see it as a defiant raised finger to a virus and governments who aren’t doing enough. Eff you. We will come through this and we will one day be happy to drag ourselves into work on a weekend especially if our work place looks like a calm, zen like oasis.

Modern monochrome in a heritage home

Posted on Fri, 24 Apr 2020 by midcenturyjo

A Victorian era terrace house in Sydney dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century? I don’t think so. No drama, no tears, no worries. Just a clever renovation of a tired old home into a sophisticated, monochromatic, modern home that maximises space and style.  Think luxe and minimal, light and bright.
