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: Elm and Willow House

Whoa! Now this is an interior we can get behind. It’s something we can get behind because it’s not so much an interior space as an almost outside/inside space. Loving this house with the huge platform, stage-like rooms that completely blur the line of what is outside and what is — Continue reading

Live Modern: House on the Bluffs

Live Modern: House on the Bluffs

This House on the Bluffs definitely looks like the sort of home we’d like to walk by at night, with all its windows lit up and warm and stunning. We like how very strong, bold and crisp the angles are. The home itself feels like a stacked grouping of rectangles, — Continue reading

Live Modern: LightHouse Ottawa

We just keep getting drawn to photographs of modern architecture taken at dusk or at night, mostly due to the golden warm light that emanates from the (usually big and many) modern windows. One of our favorite fall things to do is walk around a neighborhood in the crisp, cool — 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

Interiors: Orange is for Fall

If you had to pick one color to represent fall, what would it be? For us, it’s orange. A deep, earthy, smokey-hued orange akin to pumpkins, falling leaves and, well, all the fall decor and memoriabilla that starts popping up around this time. Of course, there are lots of ways — Continue reading

Loving this: En Route Studio

Loving this: En Route Studio

We love breathing new life into old things. While cutting edge designs are certainly a characteristic of modern design, so to is knowing that reusing vintage goods is just as good. En Route Studio sends clients’ furniture to their “Reform School.” There, they get handpainted fabric applied to sleek vintage — Continue reading

Live Modern: Puntiró House

As a general rule, concrete as a home building material often lacks that certain warmth one searches for in a home to settle down in. But there’s something about the Puntiro House by FLEXO Arquitectura in Puntiró, Mallorca, Spain that makes us feel a warmth from this modern material that we usually — Continue reading

Conversation: Robert Kwak of Muu

Kids change. Rapidly. They grow fast. Their likes and dislikes are different from one day to the next. How is it that we expect them to be satisfied with one aesthetic look to their room for the entirety of their childhood? And even more, how do we expect kids who — Continue reading

We Like What They Do: Jason Lewis Furniture

You know, no matter how much technology advances and we humans learn to use it to make cool, partially computer-generated furnishings, we’re still going to always appreciate the wonderful handcraftedness of furniture made by a talented human’s hands. A talented human like Jason Lewis. While not the craziest designs we’ve — Continue reading

Kinderhaus St.Hedwig

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

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. This presentation — Continue reading
