Neutral perfection

Posted on Fri, 9 Apr 2010 by KiM

When I found the following home on AT Casa my heart just melted. I am craving neutrals these days and this home REALLY does it for me. Beautiful natural fabrics, everything bathed in whites and greys, all giving an air of romanticism and serenity. *SIGH* It’s PERFECT. (Photos by Andrea Martiradonna)

Not too shabby!

Posted on Tue, 6 Apr 2010 by midcenturyjo

What an amazing house. Bedroom after bedroom, bathroom upon bathroom of vintage meets shabby, Swedish meets upmarket fabrics, calm and stylish,  family friendly and fun. I’d kill for an entry hall that big. A dream. From my new favourite locations site 1st Option. You’ll find this beauty here.

Leibowitz and McLachlan

Posted on Tue, 16 Mar 2010 by midcenturyjo


Is it really two and a half years since I first featured Australian interior design duo Leibowitz and McLachlan? Time for another visit and as you would expect from such a talented pair there are lots more lovely rooms on their website. It’s a casual elegance, muted colours, natural finishes, antiques with contemporary pieces. It’s stylish and crisp but light and feminine. I love their children’s rooms… so soft and pretty. As for those kitchens, it’s straight to my inspiration files.








John Jacob

Posted on Tue, 2 Mar 2010 by midcenturyjo

Sophisticated and glamorous but with just a touch of the earthy. It’s a look that is grounded and yet well travelled. It’s part grand tour, part drama and tension, part family estate, part luxury hotel,  part Out of Africa and always elegant. South African interior designer John Jacob doesn’t just interpret his client’s needs and he creates a dream home. Sundown drinks on the patio? Maybe after a soak in the tub… glass in hand of course.

I was scoping out the portfolio of architecture and interior design firm West Chin the other day to see if there were more photos I could showcase here that Jo hadn’t already done in her post back in June. I came across a swanky pad that I thought was worthy of it’s own post. This flat is modern but not too harsh, with funky bits here and there (including a couple sets of boobs and a pair of diaper chairs), and even some cute spaces for the kids (the parents must lock them in their rooms for fear of dirty hands on the furniture). FAB!
