Minimalist modern family renovation

Posted on Thu, 20 Aug 2020 by midcenturyjo

“The original house was designed in 1988 by Geoffrey Summerhayes and it was an honour to renovate and give the build a second life. Our clients, a family of 4, with two grown up children loved the layout and feel of their home, but wanted to modernise the spaces, while respecting the original architecture. We aspired to achieve a sophisticated aesthetic with casual undertones. The original house had been repainted a deep ochre and had taken on a Tuscan feel. Our proposed palette sought to enhance the original architectural elements and reform the overall experience.”

The Burrows

Posted on Thu, 20 Aug 2020 by midcenturyjo

The Burrows has been a labour of love and is filled with an eclectic mix of treasures, bespoke finds and original artworks, some handed down through family and others sourced and collected by the couple from auctions, markets and salvage yards.”

This modest historic cottage with views over Freycinet and the Hazards is the perfect getaway on the rugged coastline on the east coast of Tasmania. As one reviewer put it “This is a place for lovers. Or couples, or old friends, or lovers of nature. But mostly for lovers.” And don’t we all need a little love these days.

I’m real estate stalking the home of interior designer Anna Spiro in Birkdale here in Queensland. Known for her exuberant use of textiles, patterns and colour the colonial house is a showcase of her eclectic style while still maintaining its historical features like VJ walls, sash windows, tin roof and wide verandas. Surrounded by lush gardens it’s a quintessential Queenslander home.? Link here while it lasts.

 

Bali break

Posted on Tue, 18 Aug 2020 by midcenturyjo


“A Mediterranean oasis in tropical paradise.”

Still dreaming of travelling outside of Australia. I think our borders will be closed for quite some time. It’s great to have some sense of security in these trying times but it doesn’t stop my mind wandering to distant lands … or in this case not so distant. Time for a little virtual getaway to Casa Palma in Canggu, Bali. Simple, uncomplicated holiday style.

With over 100 categories the A’ Design Award and Competition is the world’s largest design competition.?But it is not just an award. It is an indicator of quality and perfection in design, recognized worldwide, your design front and centre before design companies and professionals. Entries will be judged by an international jury panel of scholars, professionals and media members (you can check out the methodology here) and the benefits to the winners are inspiring. The trophy, of course, an invitation to the gala night, a certificate of quality, inclusion in the prestigious A’ Design Award and Competition exhibition and the yearly ResultBook but even more importantly press, PR, introduction to industry professionals and companies and international exposure.

From the Good Industrial Design Award, to the Good Architecture Design Award. The Good Product Design Award to the Good Communication Design Award. The Good Service Design Award to the Good Fashion Design Award and so many more. Today I wanted to share my Top 20 winners from previous years … OK, OK actually just 20 of my hundreds of favourites over the years.
