Stalking old meets new

Posted on Tue, 13 Oct 2015 by midcenturyjo

Georgian facade vs modernist interior. That’s how the real estate agent describes this Woollahra, Sydney home. “An Iain Halliday creation, this house has a dramatic mix of timber and glass behind its heritage facade. Floating above a moat in a walled courtyard, it’s your ‘castle’ of modernist design.” Yada, yada, yada. Let’s just say “yum”. Link here while it lasts.

Window seat

It’s the little things. It could have been a simple window. Let in the light, some fresh air. By boxing out the opening with a wider, built-in bench and a sliding window all you need to do is just throw in some pillows and it’s an inviting nook.

A Brooklyn townhouse renovation

Posted on Thu, 17 Sep 2015 by KiM

You all know by now that I LOOOOOVE a good Brooklyn townhouse renovation. This one was submitted by the lovely folks of Lang Architecture (featured once before here). This 4 story Italianate row house was was converted from a three family to a single-family house with original interior details carefully restored. The garden floor features an office and den, the parlor floor has a living room with custom window seat at the front and a kitchen and new steel balcony at the rear. The fine wood period stair has been restored and leads to the bedroom floors. The master bedroom overlooks the street, with a generous dressing room and bathroom suite at the rear. The bathroom features custom steel and wood partitions, providing a warm complement to marble slab and tile. 


Sag Harbor Boat House

Posted on Fri, 4 Sep 2015 by midcenturyjo

Dear Santa,

I know it still 111 days until Christmas but you might need the extra time to work on my present. You see I’ve fallen quite hard for this Sag Harbor Boat House by Kevin O’Sullivan and Associates. Don’t bother wrapping it or popping it in my stocking. Perhaps you could just give me a lift in your sleigh to Sag Harbor to my new boat house instead? Oh and maybe leave me a boat at the end of the jetty… and bring all my blog friends for lunch? Thanks Santa. I promise I’ve been good… most of the time.

The owners of this Cremorne, Sydney house wanted their interiors to be lived in, warm, inviting and “non-designery”. Their Queen Anne style home was redesigned and extended by Luigi Rosselli architects but they turned to interior designers Decus to weave the magic that saw traditional meet modern, Danish mid century sit with family friendly custom build and everywhere glorious art. Light, bright, modern with a nod and always stylish but never precious. Beautiful, unique, fun.
