Elwood House is a single storey, bayside residence that has been renovated to better suit its location and the needs of a growing family. Voids and skylights create sun-lit internal spaces that are balanced by natural timber, white and grey surfaces. Large living spaces open to sunny courtyard gardens with outdoor entertaining areas and a pool, giving this home a relaxed and inviting feel.

Love it! The light, the clean, modern lines, those steel framed windows and doors, the seamless transition from inside to out and once you’re outside… just as impressive. Elwood House by Melbourne-based Neil Architecture.

Window drama

A good window frames the room every time. Love the drama of these spaces by Contour Interior Design.

Déjà vu

Posted on Tue, 24 Nov 2015 by midcenturyjo

I knew it was familiar. I knew I’d seen it before. Not the living area. No, turn around. It’s the kitchen. And that table. And those windows, those glorious windows. We all love clicking through the listings on our favourite location sites. It’s a bit like real estate stalking. I’d never seen a house before that I recognised though until I saw this place. They filmed Jamie’s 30-Minute Meals here. I must confess that my attention was only half given over to Jamie Oliver’s cooking whenever I watched the program. I was scoping out the kitchen and trying to imagine what was outside those wonderful windows. Now I know. Faith House via Airspace Locations.

Stalking over 5 or is that 6 levels

Posted on Thu, 29 Oct 2015 by midcenturyjo

I’m in Paddington, Sydney and I’m stalking the conversion of an old warehouse. The home rises over 4 levels of living but maybe it’s 5 if you include the roof terrace garden. Then again it could be 6 if you include the sandstone wine cellar. Whichever way there are a lot of stairs. Luckily there is also a lift. I cannot think of another thing they could cram into this space. 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, garaging for 4 cars, a butler’s pantry off the kitchen, a gym, the aforementioned wine cellar, a separate teenager’s retreat/rumpus, an atrium garden with retractable glass roof and an indoor glass-walled plunge pool. I’m exhausted just trying to decipher the floor plans. Link here while it lasts.

A converted carriage house

Posted on Tue, 27 Oct 2015 by midcenturyjo

It’s not often that I start a house tour from the back door and move my way to the front but I am totally smitten by the sun room at the rear of this converted carriage house in Boston by interior designer Melissa Miranda. Oh my! Oh my! Not that the rest of the house isn’t wonderful. White and bright with a mix of mid century, scandi, boho and modern it is fun and fresh and stylish.
