Game Face

Game Face

We thought this was a pretty nifty idea for casual outdoor gatherings: from Spanish retailer El Corte Ingles, foldable, portable outdoor tables with pre-printed tabletop game boards. Metal legs support a 27-inch square MDF table top, printed with clean, bright graphics. We especially like the simple lines and all-white color — Continue reading

Tiny metal modern box: Summer Cabin 4:12

The folks behind Imanna Arkitekter Architecture, who designed the Summer Cabin 4:12 project in Ingarö, Sweden, must really understand that while we love walking around and enjoying nature, we’re both terrified of bears and prefer a soft place to lay our heads down at night. What appears to be a — Continue reading

Live Modern: Casa Codina

With so many modern conveniences that enable us to live in perfectly comfortable houses year round, it’s easy to forget that for a very long time, a comfortable interior existence depending on an architect or builder’s ability to situate a structure just so in a landscape so that sun, shade, — Continue reading

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.

Play: Abandoned Yugoslavian Sculpture or Glimpse into an Architectural Future!

I was reminded again of these awesome photos of sculptures that were commissioned by the Yugoslavian government in the 1960s and 1970s but then were all abandoned, sort of resembling a future society that fell and left its sad but poetic architecture behind. Or like if you landed on an — Continue reading

Live Modern: Texas Hill Road Residence

Isn’t this modern house so full of fall feelings, colors and inspiration?

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: Suntro House

Last night I was thinking about getting business cards with rounded corners and I thought to myself how nice rounded corners are. They’re still structural but not too harsh. They still tell a shape story but just not scream it from the rooftops. They are sleek, but also kind of — Continue reading

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?
