Every home should have a few quiet cosy corners. Those precious spaces to sneak off to – perhaps to work or read a book. This one is light & bright, simply decorated with natural colours and materials.
This restful space in Sioux Falls, South Dakota belongs to Oksana Silchuk and her young family. Check out her Instagram feed for more pared back inspiration (link above).

This sunny, double-aspect sitting room belongs to a desirable Span house located in Taplow, Buckinghamshire.
Span Developments was a property design & development partnership founded by architects, Eric Lyons and Geoffrey Paulson Townsend. The Taplow development – Cedar Chase – was built in 1966 and consists of 24, Type 30 houses. Back then, the 3 and 4-bedroomed, 2-living room ‘patio’ houses were marketed at between seven and eight thousand pounds – they currently change hands for over half a million!
This room, although fully modernised, has been updated & furnished very sympathetically. The armchairs (1954), side table (1970) and floor lamp (1960) were all originally designed during the mid century modern era in which the house was built.

One of the most sure-fire ways to give a bedroom a bit of pizazz is investing in a four-poster bed. This four-poster bedroom is living proof. It’s the property of fellow lifestyle blogger, Rohini Wahi whose website is The Beat That My Heart Skipped.
It’s a very stylish space, combining contemporary furnishings with vintage touches very successfully. The bed is the star of the show – complimented perfectly by the mid century style sideboard and bedside table in similar wood tones.
As you can see, I’m still having a bit of a love affair with yellow in interiors; this particular shade on the wall is India Yellow by Farrow & Ball.

For most people, doing the laundry is a chore at the best of times. However, I’d do my washing, drying and ironing with a smile on my face if this industrial style utility room belonged to me!
It’s practical, light and roomy – you could swing a duvet cover, never mind a cat. If you have the space, a separate and – in the case above – matching washing machine and dryer are especially handy… especially if there are lots of people (and therefore, dirty laundry) in the household. It can halve the time that wash day takes!
The monochrome décor is lifted with copper highlights in the pendant lights, worktop planters and beautiful laundry basket.

We’ve got an amazing, quirky space for you in today’s ‘Get their look‘ post. If you’re a massive petrol head, there’s probably no better home for you than something like this California garage conversion. This is a space that enables you to live surrounded by your beloved cars, motorbikes and bicycles.
As you might expect from a converted garage, there’s a strong industrial feel, with its pair of huge motorised roller doors and bare rafters & beams. However, a mid-century modern vibe also shines through. It’s a very successful combination – industrial yet crisp & clean. What a wonderful looking and flexible home.

Our love affair with all things 50s-inspired continues with this mid-century lounge. It has many of the classic hallmarks of this type of space – light & airy, unfussy, optimistic. The furniture is stylish, yet retains a functional simplicity – the distinctive splayed legs and feet associated with the era are much in evidence. The parquet flooring is a wonderful original feature that really suits the overall design. Clean lines and hard edges are softened with textiles and lots of natural foliage.
Whilst we’re concentrating on the lounge area, we love the open plan nature of the apartment and glimpses through to the kitchen and mezzanine bedroom. The glazed panel works perfectly to section off the bedroom area whilst retaining the sight line and flow – this is cleverly echoed by the the mirror on the wall beneath.
