I Found this article on a Spanish website so not that sure what is being said and Google translate isn’t helping, so… I think this is a residence of Anita done in a natural modern lived in feel. I love this place, it looks and feels like it may be a vacation home or a get away cabin. The simplicity of the architecture is spot on. The wood trim matching the ceiling wood is a harmonious thing of beauty. That first picture could almost be a perfect room, YES? Read More

Balboa Highlands Mid Century Eichler

This mid century Eichler in Balboa Highlands California is a reminder that I never get tired of looking at Eichler’s work. The only negative that is more of personal preference is the kitchen, it feels disjointed with the materials and colors going on. The rest of the house looks great and its furnished appropriately. First time on the market in over 20 years, this would be a great place to raise a family. The color palette is nice, while not being over the top. The orange front door adds that extra pieces of interest and character. Read More

Design By Studio Razavi Architects

Studio Razavi Architects has a nice portfolio full of diverse projects but one theme is common, modern. The clean modern design found throughout this studios work is minimal and well designed.

The details of the architecture take on a monochromatic feel but provide a nice blank canvas for a collectors pieces. If you have some time make sure to check out their work. Read More

The Best Solar Panels For 2016 — And Beyond

In her book Bread, Wine, Chocolate, journalist Simran Sethi explores the idea of setting our tastes based on what is ethical. She gives the example of wild-grown coffee, which is gentlest on the environment but, when brewed, doesn’t match our typical idea of what good coffee tastes like. (It tastes “earthy,” or in other words, kind of like dirt.) But tastes are subjective, and they change throughout our lifetime. So, what if we made the conscious effort to shape them based on the changes we want to see in the world? Read More
