Warm tones in a renovated Warsaw apartment

Posted on Sun, 10 Feb 2019 by KiM

I spotted this renovated apartment in Warsaw, Poland on AD Germany and had to share because I fell in love instantly. The warm brown and gold tones of most of the spaces are so yummy, and that herringbone floor! And that kitchen!!! Designed by Colombe. (Photos: Kasia Gatkowska)

The Zin House

Posted on Wed, 30 Jan 2019 by midcenturyjo

“The home is a rich layering of textures; the sleek plaster walls of the house are striking against the lush green setting of a Napa vineyard. Clean and modern, the home is given a warmth and depth by a material palette that starts by pairing concrete, still holding in its texture the character of the forms that made it, with soft upholstery and bright pops of color. A tight-grain wood maintains the simplicity of the palette while inviting in more complex warmth and depth, and allowing the more rustic details of the project to stand out without overpowering a project that remains distinctly modern in its feel.”

That’s one way of putting it. The other way is “WOW”.  The Zin House with interiors by Shawback Design, architectural design by Field Architecture and landscape by Surface Design .

My dream cabin getaway

Posted on Tue, 29 Jan 2019 by KiM

I have always dreamt about having a cabin on a lake somewhere on the outskirts of Ottawa to spend weekends enjoying nature and the quiet of the country life. This cabin may not have much going on in the interior (which is typically what you get from an architect’s portfolio), but it is breathtaking in its simplicity. I would absolutely maintain a minimalist approach with this space and keep the colour palette neutral with some pastel accents. You know, that Scandi vibe. You basically have to with all that pine.

Hill House

Posted on Mon, 28 Jan 2019 by midcenturyjo

“A compact two-story hillside mid-century received an extensive and thoughtful remodel; the only original elements to survive are the burnished block central fireplace core and the steel beams and window frames.”

Intricate details such as screens and scones were replicated and architectural materials carefully chosen. Think custom tiles, Western Red Cedar for ceilings, rift-sawn White Oak and all the modern conveniences such as a screening room. Hey it’s L.A. after all! Hill House V by The Archers.

 

The Carriage House

Bucolic bliss with just the slightest touch of boho in Bedford, NY by Virginia Tupker Interiors. Tupkert, who has worked for House & Garden, Vogue and Vogue Living has a passion for textiles which she uses deftly as a counterfoil to the rustic stone and old boards in this old carriage house. It’s rough yet refined, cosy yet chic. The perfect country getaway without the country kitsch.
