These interiors by Amber Road, Sydney based sisters Yasmine Ghoniem (interiors) and Katy Svalbe (landscapes) is so very nice. There are hints of Scandinavian found throughout the interiors mostly due to the wood tones and color palette. I couldn’t help but notice the marble floors in the first picture. Some day I would love to have a floor like that but isn’t marble really porous? I also love the color blocking on the walls with both wood and paint. I think it is great that the ending places for the color blocks are not corners, they just end in the middle of the wall.
This modern family house in Denmark is quite amazing but I feel it sort of has an identity crisis. The exterior is sleek metal like and very contemporary in shape. The interiors are warm with a lot of woods and vintage furniture found throughout. What do you think? I totally respect the architects, Fries & Moltke and their vision with this place. It is sort of a rambler with a daylight basement. You enter on ground level but the rear of the house opens up.
This South Africa modern, almost bunker style house looks like it would be a pretty amazing place to live. The vertical slat wall is a pretty unique design element mostly due to the fact that the slats are so thin. Picture three is stunning, the room opens right up to a modern landscaped garden. The warm woods and eclectic approach makes for some really nice interiors. I love the extending roofline over the back of the house, has the Southern California feel for sure.
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.
