Butterfly House

Posted on Wed, 19 Aug 2020 by KiM

I cannot imagine living this close to the ocean. How incredible would these views be in person?!?! This is the iconic Butterfly House?originally designed by Frank Wynkoop in 1950. Many bland renovations since, Jamie Bush was hired on by the current homeowners to give it a total restoration with major upgrades to bring it back to its organic roots. What a dream home!

Plaster and stone

Posted on Fri, 31 Jul 2020 by midcenturyjo

An extension at the back of this Bellevue Hill Federation House and the renovation of the home’s bathrooms saw interior design duo Handelsmann + Khaw explore Mediterranean themes, texture or should I say patina and a casual elegance. Think tumbled marble tiles, terrazzo and tadelakt. And then there is the drama of that bathroom overlooking the garden. Beautiful!

Now I know what’s inside the darkness. It’s a shell pink dressing room. Artist in Residence by Anna Standish.


A contemporary family retreat in Texas

Posted on Sun, 26 Jul 2020 by KiM

Now this is weekend living! This breathtaking glass home was once a bare-bones fish camp on the?Llano River in the Texas Hill Country (a 48 acre piece of waterfront land) and eventually this home was built. A striking melange of limestone blocks, charred cedar planks, walls of glass, it’s modern and rustic, casual and tranquil. Via Garden & Gun. Architect:?Michael Hsu?Photos: Wynn Myers

Off the grid and stylish lake house

Posted on Mon, 13 Jul 2020 by midcenturyjo

Today’s second lake house is not only off the grid it’s off the scale for stylish, unplugged living. This weekend getaway is all about natural materials and soft muted tones. If it was mine I’d be living here more than just on weekends. New Buffalo house by Chicago-based Elizabeth Krueger Design.
