1. The Brick And Wood Aesthetic of Dana House, Connecticut

    A simple combination of brick and wood may sound rough today, but it has been very trendy in the building aesthetics of the mid-century.

Stable and imposing, the construction shelters five bedrooms, a generous living area and four bathrooms.

  3. A Modern and Warm Apartment Design by Daniel Hopwood

    London-based studio Daniel Hopwood completed the Design for Living project in July 2012.  The apartment overlooks a street lined with late 19th century red brick mansion blocks that have terracotta, stone and render detailing. The space is divided into three rooms, one with an open-plan kitchen leading into a reception room that has 5 metre high ceilings. A mezzanine overlooking the double-volume space has been configured as an additional study area.

And LOVE all of the classic mid-century furnishings. The interior designer reconfigured a bijou apartment in Marylebone, London, UK, to create space where his “bons vivants clients could entertain lavishly, designing it with a sleek, creamy oak envelope and a hint of Halston ‘70s
