Poetry

Posted on Wed, 4 Sep 2013 by midcenturyjo

Techné – to make poetically. I had to return to this Melbourne firm’s work for another dose of inspiration. Creative, contemporary, edgy and exciting this home is a bright and cheery ode to family life. Both dark and colourful choruses break the sunny white providing contrast and interest, tying the old to the new. Hang it! I’ll stop trying to wax lyrical. I just need to say it’s fabulous!.

Heaven

Posted on Tue, 3 Sep 2013 by midcenturyjo

Heaven is dark and moody. No bright, white light. No pearly gates and fluffy clouds. No, it is an apartment in a Collingwood, Melbourne warehouse by Wolveridge Architects. Exposed brick, old timbers, leather, a slightly fussy wallpaper. Bliss. No, I mean heaven!

Summer forever

Posted on Sun, 25 Aug 2013 by KiM

I wish summer would last forever. To sit here at my computer with the window open and listen to the birds, traffic (LOL), and enjoy the cool breeze. To see green outside instead of white and brown. I could just move into a traditional Mediterranean villa such as this one and all would be right with the world. (I would have to add a bit of black and more modern and industrial touches to it though). Via Micasa.

A second dose of Carlos Motta

I now want to pack up the cats and move to the Brazilian rainforest thanks to Carlos Motta.

Apartment 1511

Posted on Wed, 14 Aug 2013 by KiM

I’ve got another small apartment for you designed by Brazilian architect Alan Chu and Cristiano Kato (see previously featured apartment here). This one has 2 of my favourite design elements – flat black and raw/rustic looking wood. And they work SO WELL together. The kitchen tile is very odd but it’s growing on me – likely because it’s such an unexpected element with the rest of the apartment. I could absolutely live here.
