We guess the idea of Valentine’s Day has been slowly seeping into our brains, because boy did we fill our Pinterest stream with heart-shaped things galore.

Favorite Pins of the Week Part 2

We guess the idea of Valentine’s Day has been slowly seeping into our brains, because we couldn’t help but think about the colors of love — pink, red, purple — in terms of interiors, patterns, art and architecture, and you know what? We spotted a lot. But we also spotted — Continue reading

The HemLoft: A Modern Tree House!

The origin of this modern tree house starts out in quite the unique way, well, actually, we’ll let the builder, Joel Allen, say it in his own words: “I’m just going to come out and say it. I tried to retire at the age of 26 and failed. What does this — Continue reading

Tiled and Minimal Modern Renovation

Located in the heart of the historical area of Baixa, Lisbon, Portugal, the building that this home is in, sits at the corner of Rua dos Fanqueiros and Rua da Conceição. The minimal design of this refurbished space is really a gem…there aren’t a lot of colors, and when colors — Continue reading

Corinne Loperfido’s Comic-Colored Architecture

Corinne Loperfido’s Comic-Colored Architecture

Before reading her “about page,” we could just tell Corinne Loperfido had to spend time in Louisiana. There was something decidedly swampy about the surroundings of these houses she draws. We were half right. An artist and graphic designer who splits her time between Austin, Texas and New Orleans, Louisiana, — Continue reading

Matthew Millman’s Architecture + Landscape

This is a bit of a different architecture post, because instead of focusing on just one project or one designer, we’re focusing on one stupendous architectural photographer who’s had the opportunity to shoot some beautiful homes set in unbelieveably gorgeous natural surroundings. The purpose of this post? Motivation? Sanity-restoring peace? — Continue reading

You bet it’s another home for sale in Sweden somewhere with sleek modern interiors that will make you furious that you probably can’t afford it. Though to be fair this one is only around 200k which isn’t really that bad considering how awesome this space is. Are you looking at — Continue reading

Architects Collective’s Spaceship-like L-House

We never really pass up on a chance to post about a home that has a distinct, spaceship-like feel. Why? Because we love the future and we love spaceships, duh. This home in Burgenland, Austria by the Architects Collective definitely has a futuristic feel with lots of angles, but it also — Continue reading

James Woolum of HMC Architects on Art and Architecture

Society has a tendency to take art for granted.  Art is often perceived as something for the ‘select few’, often not going any further than being considered something ‘nice’ or ‘interesting.” But unless it sustains a career or is talked about in more places than the classroom or the studio, — Continue reading

Patrik Lindell’s Abstract Architecture Art

I look at a lot of architecture all day. In person and in photos. I like it when I can see the whole building close up. I like it when I see just one side. I like when a shot zeroes in on a detail. Though using architecture — angles, — Continue reading

Tiny Modern Dreams: Leaf House

Does anyone else ever fantasize about running away to some remote yet gorgeous landscape with a teeny tiny modern home, small enough to pull with a truck? We can’t be the only one, which is why we occasionally drool over the website, Tiny House Listings. One day. In the mean — Continue reading

Helen and Garson’s Hertfordshire Home

You know, as much as we love drooling over stunningly modern homes that only the very luckiest and richest few could probably afford, we also enjoy loving on a home that is totally accessible! You can say that’s our whole raison d’etre here at 2Modern — showing you that modern, — Continue reading

Owhanake Bay House by Strachan Group

Life MUST be difficult for whoever lives in the Owhanake Bay House in Waiheke Island, New Zealand designed by Strachan Group Architects. It’s like they’re living in some desolate prison yard. Yuck…NOT. “Located on Waiheke Island, a 19km ferry journey from down-town Auckland, the Owhanake Bay house hunkers-down below a ridge — Continue reading

1940s Retreat by Rick & Cindy Black Architects

We love modern. Like, real modern that is sleek and kind of looks like the interior of a space ship. We also like modern in terms of Mid-Century Modern. Retro modern. Shapes and lines that hearken back to that awesome period of design time. So when the two mix? Whoo — Continue reading

Tarrytown House by Webber + Studio

Bright, fresh and airy. That’s all we’re really looking for in a modern space (well, except when we’re looking for something cozy and dark…or something else…we like a lot of stuff, okay?!) and the Tarrytown House remodel by Austin-based Webber + Studio delivers like a mofo. We’re fainting over those — Continue reading

Summer House by Judith Benzer Architektur

Maybe it’s the light. Maybe it’s just the great angles that the architectural photographer used in the shots. The Summer House by Judith Benzer Architektur located in Burgenland, Austria is simply stunning. “The project Summer House in Southern Burgenland (Austria) describes a sharp-edged cubature which fits into its surroundings through its — Continue reading
