Live Modern (and Actively): PAS (Skate) House

Did you resolve to workout more and become more active in 2012? How are you doing so far? It’s tough, isn’t it? Between work, friends and family it can be hard to focus on exercise, but we found a house that, it seems, would be impossible to not at least — Continue reading

Favorite Modern Interiors of 2011

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

DIY: Modern barn door for $40

How we missed this when it first appeared on Apartment Therapy back in February is a mystery, but what’s not a mystery is why anyone would want this in their home: modern sliding/barn doors are an awesome alternative to regular doors-in-a-frame or even just casement openings; they add an instant — Continue reading

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

Skypak: Redesigned Airplane Trolley

Skypak is the name of a design brand from Cologne, Germany. They refine airplane trolleys to make them usable in home, business and office settings. We have to admit, their compact design and focus on efficiency do make them pretty clever, and they’ve got a nice industrial feel to them.

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. Instantly creating a softer, more comfortable sort of feel to it than harsher, more squared-off corners would. — Continue reading

Live Modern: House in Cadiz

We’ve always thought good architecture was just as beautiful as art, but all the photos from this home in Cadiz, Spain are so stunning they could easily be seen in an art gallery! Truly, these shots are of an amazing home that is nestled among coastal nature in a surprising — Continue reading

Live Modern: House on Punkinville Road

As you might imagine, something that is located on “Punkinville Road” might give the impression that it would be adorable. Just oozing with cute. While this home by bruce norelius studio is certainly easy on the ideas, it’s pretty serious about its architecture (despite the precious name of its street). — 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: Compact Gallery

The folks at worshop/apd sure know how to create a modern space that is the complete opposite of sterile and boring. This seriously might be a favorite interior that we’ve seen yet. There’s just so much wonderful color and personalization to this space; you really get that these designers worked — 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: Kennerly Renovation in San Francisco

The kitchen shot of this renovated home in San Francisco caught our eye first; we loved the combination of different wood tones, mixed with stainless steel, combined with the gorgeous jewel-toned blue green painted wall. Spotted on Remodelista, we love that this a small space, 850 square feet, and is — 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

Live Modern: Söderöra

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. Two of our favorite things when we look for cool modern architecture! Seriously though, this one has some amazing views that were specifically framed. It’s almost — Continue reading

Hill Country Views with the Wimberley House

Does it seem like we focus on Texas-centered architects or Texas properties a lot around here? Well, it just so happens that your friendly blog editor-in-chief (Adrienne) lives in Texas (Austin, to be exact) but that’s not really why we focus on them (if you could say we focus on — Continue reading

Young kiddos need inspiring interiors, too. Don’t let the fact that this structure was built for cute, young learning things distract you from its simple beauty. In fact, there are a lot of things from this stunning interior you can take and use in a home. Like lots of natural — Continue reading

Food/Design: Pitfire Pizza

There’s a saying in design (we’re paraphrasing): “If you can’t change something, make it bigger. If you can’t make it bigger, make it red.” Now we don’t mean to imply that the giant red pizza oven wasn’t painted red intentionally, we’re just saying it certainly sticks out, doesn’t it? But — Continue reading
