Slade Hooton Hall

Posted on Wed, 21 Feb 2024 by KiM

This impressive Grade II*-listed house was built in the William and Mary style of the 17th century. Sitting within over four acres of private grounds, the house enjoys far-reaching views over South Yorkshire’s surrounding countryside. Unfolding over 5,500 sq ft, the house has two fantastic reception rooms, a generous kitchen and eight bedrooms, as well as numerous outbuildings. One of the earliest classically-designed houses of the region, a sympathetic restoration has preserved some of its exceptional original features, such as the trompe l’œil painting crowing the main staircase. Complete with a swimming pool, an entertaining hall, orchards and a greenhouse, the house makes for a wonderful self-contained oasis. 
Dear gawd, where do I sign?!?! This home is soooo checking all my boxes. And (massive Aga) then (pool) some (glasshouse…greenhouse…lake…outbuildings…conservatory…fountain…). For sale via Inigo.

Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 10 Feb 2024 by midcenturyjo

It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Ottolenghi test kitchen by Studiomama. Hang on I’m lying. You’d have to drag me out of the Ottolenghi test kitchen not into it!

What was once a boxy, cramped 1920s lakehouse located among Ohio’s Portage Lakes, is now a swanky residence for a retired “single, older gentleman” who is I betcha going to find himself an equally swanky partner now that he has these cool digs! A bit mad men and a bit roaring ’20s is where Tanner Sammons and Jennifer Laouari of Morgan Madison Design took this home and it is possibly one of the classiest lakehouses I’ve ever seen.

The appearance of gold

Posted on Thu, 11 Jan 2024 by midcenturyjo

“Yellow-coloured objects appear to be gold” – Aristotle. It’s a quote used by Geremia Design to describe their reworking of a Julia Morgan house. (Morgan’s most famous building is Hearst Castle.) It’s about bold, saturated colour and the juxtaposition of old and new, novel and familiar, subtle and dramatic. It’s about alchemy … and gold.

A Chelsea Loft Apartment

Posted on Tue, 9 Jan 2024 by midcenturyjo

My New York dream. A classic loft space that goes on and on. A multitude of living spaces. Bedrooms that are boudoirs with yet more seating areas. An office the size of most NY studios. A girl can dream and when I do I’ll it will be this Chelseas loft Ryan Lawson that will fill my mind’s eye. Chic and bohemian, quirky and massive.
