I’m still real estate scrolling  and I’m still near the water but this time I’m in Jan Juc down on Victoria’s Surf Coast. OK this stylish bungalow isn’t so much a surf shack as it is a wonderful family home but it’s just down the road from the famous Bells Beach and that warrants a surf board or two on hand in the garage. Love the colourful Scandi vibe, the herringbone oak floors, the linen curtains, the wonderful pattern overload in the bedrooms. Fun, fresh and definitely all about the family. Link while it lasts.

I’m real estate scrolling in the Melbourne bayside suburb of St Kilda and I think I’ve found the perfect pied-à-terre but it’s more than just somewhere to drop your bags and head out into cosmopolitan city. Small in size but definitely big in style. No wonder because this bijou gem is the work of interior stylist .  It’s going to auction next month. Seriously tempted. Link while it lasts.

Haute eclectic in Saint-Germain-des-Près

Haute eclectic in its finest form in a jaw-dropping apartment in Saint-Germain-des-Près designed by . The mix of Italian and Scandinavian mid-century furnishings is stunning with the architectural features. I could certainly do without the rhino head though 🙁 (Photos: )

I have spent many years working at this blog, and hunting down photos of beautiful interiors. It tends to leave you a bit underwhelmed at times, and craving some creativity and uniqueness. New York based interior design genius is one of those designers who makes me want more. I stare at his photos, try to move on to something else, then go back to inspect every inch of his spaces again in case I missed something the first time. This pattern repeats itself about 8 times. And only then am I satiated. The unique vintage furnishings, the bold and always layered artwork, the depth to the spaces is everything.

A modern barnhouse

Posted on Wed, 22 May 2019 by midcenturyjo

I have always loved that first image. I posted it way back here. It’s Tregoning House at Avalon Beach, Sydney by architect Daniel Raymond. The sad thing is that for ages it was the only glimpse of the large barn like extension that I could find. Somehow I just knew that I would love the rest of the house. Raymond is now a director, along with Thomas Martin, of and it’s there my wish was granted. More photos!!
