Concrete, wood and nature

Posted on Tue, 3 Apr 2018 by KiM

The modern and simple architecture of this home is appealing to my inner minimalist. Add these massive doors and windows opening to a courtyard and this is about as close to heaven as you can get. By Parisian architecture and design firm Le LAD.

Kitchen dreams

Posted on Tue, 27 Mar 2018 by midcenturyjo

Long time readers will know I have a thing for English country kitchens or at the very least modern interpretations of them. Today I’m lusting after something different. Part Scandinavian, part retro, a little bit quirky with loads of personality and the warmth of wood and brass. On top of it all it’s beautifully handcrafted with attention to all the little details I never thought I’d care about. My new favourite kitchen is by Copenhagen-based KBH Københavns Møbelsnedkeri.



White in Port Weybridge

Posted on Fri, 23 Mar 2018 by midcenturyjo

It’s white, bright and totally livable. It’s family friendly, fresh and fab. I love the kitchen with its nod to traditional cabinetry and I’m seriously coveting the family bathroom.

A converted ironmongers warehouse

Posted on Sun, 11 Mar 2018 by KiM

This may be my all time favourite warehouse conversion ever featured on this here blog. This beauty is a recently converted and extended ironmongers warehouse in London. THE KITCHEN!!! A total dream in tile, concrete, walnut, marble, copper, brass and brick. TO DIE FOR!!! I would stop there but I am also a new huge fan of terrazzo flooring so there’s that too. Available as a location home through Shoot Factory.

The Courtyard House

Posted on Fri, 9 Mar 2018 by midcenturyjo

Built on the long, narrow site of a formed garage, this West London house is bright and light thanks to a series of courtyards and roof lights dictated by existing high boundary walls. The simple yet stylish interiors use a palette of white walls, oak floors, black framed windows and doors and cedar battens. The Courtyard House by architectural and interior design practice De Rosee Sa.
