As with our “Live Modern” section, when we look around for inspiring modern interiors, we’re looking for all the typical modern elements like clean lines, thoughtful furniture, fun colors and more.

Favorite Modern Houses of 2011

For our “Live Modern” series on the blog, we feature architecture that we think exhibits certain kinds of qualities. The modern architecture we choose to highlight is certainly modernly designed–you see a lot of straight lines, innovative materials and smart use of space—and it’s also the kind of architecture that — Continue reading

Live Modern: Country House

What does the perfect intersection between traditional, country style and modernism look like? Like this incredible home by dva arhitekta located in Bijaca, Bosnia and Herzegovina. “The approach of the proposal was to develop a residential complex in strong connection to the context.

Interiors: The SuperGroup

We’d say we have a healthy obsession with what we’d call “future decor.” In other words, we’re always daydreaming about what homes, offices and businesses might look like in the future.

Live Modern: Maison P+C

What does a home that looks good at every angle look like? Why, this house, called Maison P + C. If you guessed by the title that it’s a French home, you’d be right. Located in Indre, France, to be precise. But this French home doesn’t have any hints at — Continue reading

Interiors: L Residence

As  a general rule, we’re not super into blue in an interior space. That’s a bit harsh…we mean, there are lots of ways in which blue can totally make a space rock, but you really need to have a cool hue. This home, the L Residence, totally gets blue right. — Continue reading

Live Modern: The River House

Most of the time when people celebrate the joys of living near water, they’re talking about oceans or maybe some fancy lake. Rivers just don’t get the credit of being awesome that they deserve. But as someone who grew up near a river, let me tell you they have a — Continue reading

Live Modern: BBD House

Just loving this house! It’s such a perfect mix of old and new when you begin to examine its details. First to catch our eye are those lovely, rounded corners of the house.

With guests no doubt due to arrive any minute on your doorsteps for the holidays, it might behoove you to evaluate your first impression. What will people see upon first landing on your threshold?

Live Modern: Oblio House

Just loving the Southwestern vibe to this house, Oblio House. Located in Cedar Crest, New Mexico, you can really sense this architecture’s connection to its surrounding land, and colors, volumes, shapes and more are lifted from the landscape in a way that is subtle, yet haunting.

Featured Artist: Bridget Frances Quinn

Multi-media artist Bridget Frances Quinn will be the first one to admit her work’s a little across the boards. That’s okay for us; we’re a little over the boards ourselves. There’s nothing wrong with letting muses and the creative spirit move through you, letting it guide what and when you’re — Continue reading

Live Modern: Weekend House on Lake Superior

We’d be much more able to withstand frightful winter weather outside if we lived in a stunning piece of modern architecture like this! It’s hard to tell if the home would be more visible in warmer, more colorful months, but there’s something so slick and camouflaged about how it looks — Continue reading

Interiors: Stratford Hills Residence

Unlike yesterday’s post that had “Texas” in the title but wasn’t located in Texas, this one doesn’t not have a title that alludes to its Texas origin, but its warm, modern interiors sort of do. We’re just loving the modern mix of neutral colors that have combined to mingle with — Continue reading

Live Modern: 28 Black Hawk by Spore Architecture

Alright, first we have to admit that we don’t love that giant “28″ on the side of this residential home. It’s just a little too distracting for us. However, it’s one tiny complaint next to a pile of “oohs” and “ahhs” that we feel over this architecture. As you might — Continue reading

Interiors: Flat Yellow Renovation

Remember when we spoke earlier in the week about orange always reminding us of fall the most? Maybe we spoke too soon. This big old wall of yellow sure is getting our fall fires started in our souls, too. In Porto, Portugal, this project was a remodel, and we can’t — Continue reading

Ooh! This home we found on Architizer not only includes a tiny, pod-like modern shape and size, but it is also comfortably nestled amongst some nature.
