A renovated apartment in Berlin

Posted on Wed, 24 Oct 2018 by KiM

How to win me over in 2 steps. 1 – install some crittall doors as a room separator. 2 – install some old-school patterned tile in a “rug” pattern. Studio Karhard + TWArchitecten won me over just like that with this Berlin apartment renovation.

Stalking a dream garden room

Posted on Tue, 23 Oct 2018 by midcenturyjo

 

Sometimes it takes just one room, a single perfect space that captures your heart and soul completely. This lovely heritage home in Sydney’s prestigious Darling Point is beautiful. The windows are stunning, the kitchen is amazing but it is the garden room, or at least what I call the garden room, that will haunt my design dreams for months to come. Lead-light and parlour palms, rattan seats and french oak tables. Perfection. This is one of the times I wish I was actually touring the house not just real estate stalking. Link for the listing here while it lasts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

A light filled loft

Posted on Wed, 17 Oct 2018 by midcenturyjo

A week of grey skies and constant rain has left me craving light-filled spaces and I can’t think of a better place to be than the amazing loft home of Sally Breer, founder and lead designer of L.A.-based ETC.etera. Soaring windows, industrial posts and beams, killer furniture including a Desede Terrazza sofa. I’m in heaven. Now if the design gods would only scoop my up from my sodden surrounds and transport me to this L.A. loft all would be well with my world.

A fresh, fabulous, family home in a light-filled apartment in New York City and to-die-for windows? Sounds amazing … and it is! The added bonus is the modern black and white scandi vibe with blonde wood. West Village Apartment by U.S. and Brit-based Sheep + Stone Interiors.

Library nirvana

Posted on Mon, 20 Aug 2018 by midcenturyjo

Yes I know I posted an office on Saturday. Kim even posted an office on Sunday but I knew you would forgive a hat trick of workplaces once you set eyes on this library nirvana. This is Hordern House, a purveyor of rare books, manuscripts and paintings in Sydney’s Surry Hills. Richly layered, beautifully curated, this gem of a space was designed by Studio Kate and is quite possibly the most beautiful retail/office space I have ever set eyes upon. Once I had entered I would never want to leave.
