This mid century mansion in Toronto is surely something to behold. Indoor swimming pool, beauty salon and movie theater are just a few of the extras not typically found in a house of this era. Some of these rooms need a serious gutting but there are elements here and there that are quite nice. I also love the bits of Danish found throughout. My favorite room of the house is the bedroom (3rd pic), everything works so well together. Now you know what you can do with your extra 17 million, buy this place and there will be plenty of room for me to come visit.
This modern expansion by DOSIS is quite the futuristic home. I like that the structure looks so “ultra modern” but the interiors don’t feel that way at all, in fact they almost feel a little mid century. The copper fireplace hood is a nice feature and has a nice patina. The exterior panels remix me of airplanes how they are riveted on, “ultra deco?”, ya I just made that up.
This Hollywood Hills mid century by Edward H. Fickett was recently bought by actor James Marsden. Hey James, nice choice!. There are so many things to love about this house. Mid century elements can be found throughout but there are a couple of items that stood out to me. The angular lines of the swimming pool create a not so typical shape that houses the pool and spa. The interiors are just right with exception of a few pieces that don’t belong (just my opinion). The bathrooms, kitchen and pool were all renovated and updated and I must say I think they did a great job not to push it to far.
Magdalena Keck has an eye for design with a minimal curated approach. The UWS or Upper West Side project caught my attention. The balance of space and object is amazing. These vignettes are so well balanced in color and shape as well. I am intrigued by the dinning chairs in the images 3 and 5. They look American made, anyone have any info on these? The lamp in the second picture, is that made of marble? I could find my self living in a place like this.
This beach side mid century home by architect John Floydd is perfect. IF you had the money, what a cool beach house this would be. The house was completed in 1962 by Floydd and he is still practicing today. I am usually not a brown color palette guy but there is just something about these interiors that I really like. The harmony of the of color palette works so well together. The slatted ceilings are key, I know I sound like a broken record.
D2 Interieurs has some great projects both in ultra modern and contemporary flavors. For some reason I love looking at homes full of pop art. You know, that all entire white house with everything in it being art. The bright slaps of color, one of these house even has like a six foot pink small in their from yard. I don’t think I could actually live in a home like that but they are fun to look through.
