I have seen interiors from the Walsh St House by Robin Boyd before but I recently came across this great article at The Design Files. This house is quite amazing. Boyd designed this house in 1958 for himself and his family. Could you imagine owning this home? Tim’Rosso’ Ross, the owner when this article was written has a fantastic eye for mid century, the interiors are top notch. Make sure to go check out this piece as it is a great read and eduction about mid century modern in Australia.
Laste week I featured the renovation work of Bodron + Fruit and was torn as to which project to share so here was the “runner up”. This Howard Meyer renovation is a dream mid century modern house. I like the use of brick in the architecture of this house, it give it a substantial presence. The flat room also gives it a longer reach stance. The interiors are stunning. The staircase is a piece of artwork. I love all of the built-ins, a try sign of MCM.
I completely love the work of Ceramicist Eric Roinestad. The culmination of sculpture meets functionality creates a beautiful result within his work. These particular pieces remind me of sea creatures like corals, sea urchins and others. The textures and colors are fantastic, they have amazing depth, adding the final character traits to the pieces.
I was fishing around on the internet and came across this amazing sideboard made in Canada by Treco which led me to the blog of Pedro Silmon. I landed on a page full of amazing auction photos and listings. I have seen some of these pieces before but some of them were completely new to me. That first picture and credenza is amazing, like Raymond Loewy meets Danish. I think I need one of those.

The PC House by Kengo Kuma and Associates is simply beautiful. Not that I know a lot about the Japanese culture but I do know that I love their minimal approach to design. This home is so minimally thought out but at the same time there are some amazing textures going on in the architecture of the house. I don’t know if those corrugated walls are smoothed out concrete but they sure look like polished concrete. All of the wood textures and patterns ad warmth to the otherwise sparse house.
This 1963 mid century modern beach house just moments from the beach at Hayling Island, Hampshire is stunning. If someone said MCM beach house, this is not the image that would pop into my head. The horizontal running boards on the ceilings and floors matched with the white brick walls are so nice. The stairs leading to the lower level are a fantastic architectural element. I am not usually a fan of Verner Panton but the cone chairs look so good in theta room.
