It has been a while since we featured some projects by Nashville-based (see here and here). Hannah’s style is so fresh and bright and easy on the eye so I wanted to share another project of hers that is all that and more. This contemporary home is bathed in white with just the right amount of colour accents, some funky abstract art and bold elements like the dining room pendant and rug. Love!!
I wanted to share this project by Amber Sokolowski of because it shows how to inject personality into a home without much architectural interest. A fireplace in the dining room is a great feature, and despite it being somewhat oddly placed, is now a focal point when wrapped in graphic tile. Love the teak dining set adding some mid-century funk and adore the large scale artwork in the foyer.
He’s the master of mixing eras, of taking a limited palette and adding richness and interest through texture and shape. French-born, Spanish-based Serge Castella’s take on mid modern is fresh, artistic and just a little quirky. Who could mix an elegant French commode with Roman amphora and still remain true to the mid mod aesthetic? His background in fashion and antiques is obvious in his interior design work. Stylish, chic and totally individual.
I am not sure how Los Angeles based interior designer managed to mix mid-century and boho and glam elements together to create such an awesome vibe but he did and I LOVE it. This home is stunning and OMG look at all those massive windows! It’s so bright and easy on the eye yet has some fabulous statement pieces for some BLAM.
Mid-century modern architecture always makes my design juices flow and this home is doing just that. A location home available via , it is so open flows beautifully and THOSE WINDOWS! The decor could be SO much better so I am sitting here re-decorating it over and over in my head. Built by the architecture company Edgley Design, Pear Tree House was shortlisted for the Stephen Lawrence prize and awarded a RIBA London Award in 2015. The house has been built around a 100 year old pear tree, which was once part of a Victorian fruit orchard, creating an internal courtyard bringing light and air to the centre of the building. The house is long and thin, and the layout is arranged around the changing light of the day with the lowered snug in the centre of the building forming cosy retreat with views out into the garden. The building was designed to blend into its wooded back land context as far as possible and views through the building are defined by slender vertical elements which echo the experience of looking through trees. The ground floor walls are cast in concrete with vertical timber and contrast the polished concrete floor creating abstracted reflections. The house features crafted joinery made from oak veneered ply with brass detailing. Two handmade chandeliers, hang in the double height void spaces at either end of the glass link. The smooth ply finish staircases create dramatic, naturally lit spaces from the roof lights above.
