Nooks and crannies

Posted on Wed, 26 Nov 2014 by midcenturyjo

The biggest luxury in a kitchen? No not marble benches. No not top of the line European appliances. Storage and lots of it. A place for everything and everything in its place. That’s why I love all the nooks and crannies in this kitchen refurb by Hearth.


You had me at hello

Posted on Tue, 25 Nov 2014 by midcenturyjo

You are definitely no wallflower. You are just a bit loud and proud. Always a happy face on display it’s what’s hidden within that has me wondering. What are you hiding? I bet you’re warm and embracing, modern but old fashioned in your hospitality. I know you used to be a shop house but you’ve had a bit of work done recently. Please let me in. I need to get to know you more. Hello House by Melbourne based OOF! Architecture.

That’s what the print says and that may be true… or not 🙂 What I am noticing though is the demise of the overstuffed, the over thought, the over tweaked, the overdone. I love this Eagle Rock, California house Bestor Architecture. Stylish but casual, family friendly and just right for everyday living. And who could say no to a half pipe in the backyard?

Rough and sleek, old and new, neutral and black. Walls softened by fabric and mezzanine of OSB. Even a false door. Big on style and small in square metres. 29sqm by Polish architects 3XA.

Working on a Saturday

You’ve heard me lament before about working on a weekend. It’s still true that I’d be a lot happier if I could spend the day in a work place as stylish as this. The joy of joinery. Plywood pleasure. Shiver. Mil Constructions’ warehouse, workshop and office by Doherty Design Studio.
