Live Modern: Casa en Gral. Rodriguez

We think our love of this house in Argentina has a lot to do with volumes–and visible ones at that. There’s a comforting familiarity with modern architecture that doesn’t aim to confuse or surprise, but just provides an honest picture of what you might expect on the interior.

Interiors: Holley House

We are so into textured, rough-hewn, natural-colored stone walls right now. The longer and more horizontal the stone block, the better. Once very popular in the 1960s and 1970s, they’re highly coveted by Mid-Century Modern affcienados but we have to say, they also kind of rock it in really modern, — Continue reading

Interiors: Milk and Honey Home

We Like What They Do: Kino Guerin

One of the neatest things about furniture design is that for quite some time, furniture had just a few shapes and types that it came in, you know? Table. Chair. Bed. Furniture is designed for specific human purposes and functions and since humans are basically the same our furniture needs — Continue reading

Live Modern: Villa Morild

We’ve really found ourselves to be quite the fans of Saunders Architecture, having featured a number of their structures before (namely their Norwegian, Sci-fi summer house). Their architecture is just so dreamy, otherworldly and imaginative, just like their Villa Morild we’re featuring right now. We love how they’ve included photographs — Continue reading

Live Modern: Haus Englberg

Well, this isn’t quite a barn, but you can see where our recent barn-mania may have led us to loving this piece of architecture. Man, what is it about German architects who just get it sooo right?

Live Modern: Graham Residence

We think we have such an obsession with modern residential architecture set deeply into dramatic landscaping because the contrast is so strong. You expect to see sleek lines and fun angles in urban settings, but when it’s next to blue skies, emerald green plants and organic shapes it takes awhile — Continue reading

Bold Colors :: Modern in LA

I really can’t get over the use of color in this two-story wood, concrete, and glass home owned and designed by architect Barbara Bestor.  The pink and turquoise is a ‘tongue-in-cheek feminist declaration…Our pink is ironic and assertive,’ says Barbara, who lives there with her two daughters.  Ironic or not, — Continue reading
