Modern Book Cases

I know Kindles and E-Book readers are what all the cool kids are doing, but I'm still a die-hard book fan. Although, I can only afford one of those cheapo Ikea bookcases, but in my ideal loft apartment, I'll own one of these really cool, modern book cases. The Beehive — Continue reading

Modern Pool Party

I don't know about the rest of you, but with the heat index hovering around 100'F in Atlanta, I really need to find a pool to take a dip in.  Until then, here's a gaggle of beautiful, modern, pools for cooling off, maxing and relaxing.   The Z-House, Denmark, by — Continue reading

The Universe House

Nestled among the beachy rocks and cacti of Roca Blanco, Mexico is quite possibly one of the most spectacular beach houses I've ever laid eyes on.  Not unlike many other beach houses I've seen, this beach house nearly disappears into the hill on which it was built and it probably — Continue reading

Treehouses…for grown-ups

Having spent the majority of my formative and my present years in urban Chicago, San Antonio and now Atlanta, I can safely say that neither myself nor my family has ever had yard space for a treehouse.  They look like fun, though.   However, now I'm a grown-up, I think perhaps — Continue reading

Ingmar Swalue: Dutch Photographer

I think I've found a new favorite in this Dutch photographer, Ingmar Swalue.  He works both as a contemporary artist and has done some advertising work for clients like Chanel, Heinekin and Motorola.  His photography plays with space and composition and his work verges on the cinematic…imagine Cindy Sherman's "Untitled" — Continue reading

Modern Trends in Acrylic Furniture

One of the great things about acrylic furniture is the versatility in form and functions.  A regular coffee table is transformed when it's made as an acrylic i-bean coffee table.  A plain dining chair is elegant and chic when is so much more interesting when it's made from lilac acrylic. — Continue reading

Mondrian Anyone?

Isn't it interesting that Piet Mondrian's influence remains to this day?  From interior design to fashion (anyone else remember Diana von Furstenberg's Mondrian-inspired sheath dress?) to cheeky, contemporary waste baskets and pencil cups.  Though Mondrian founded and coined the De Stijl (Dutch for "The Style") movement nearly a century ago, — Continue reading

Modern Hanging Planters

Now that Spring has sprung, birds chirp, the ground is carpeted in yellow dust and there are some lovely flowers (and pretty weeds) that are ripe for picking.  I'd grab some pink Azaleas and some bright yellow dandelions and store them around my apartment in these cute yet modern hanging — Continue reading
