Interiors By Caroline Legrand Design

Caroline Legrand has a great portfolio. Her style is somewhat glam, eclectic, and modern all mixed together. I looked through all of her projects and couldn’t settle on just one so I grabbed some images from my favorites. I need that coffee table in the first pic in the worst way. I love looking through these rooms and picking out my favorite pieces. I spy pieces from the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s and they are all working together to great an impactful room. Read More

Simple Geometry Shines In Modern Seattle Home

architecture modern house
Floisand Studio designed the Teh House, a private residence in Seattle, Washington. As laid out in the pictures following, the exterior of the building displays a simple geometry — two stacked rectangular volumes in a bold black and white. The lower level protrudes inside the street-facing courtyard into a modern garage.  The opposite side of the house opens up towards a lush garden with water features. Generously-sized windows and wooden balconies provided an optimum connection with the outdoors.

The simple geometry is brought inside of the home, where clear lines shape up the interior scheme. However, color is an important factor of the design, creating a positive vibe throughout and setting this dwelling apart from other contemporary houses usually displaying a sober modern look.

9 Gender Neutral Gifts

What better time than Christmas to perpetuate the notion of gender stereotypes, with the sharp demarcation of gifts for boys and gifts for girls, gifts for him and gifts for her. Entirely matter-of-fact, it is masculine pitted against feminine, on steroids. Instead, with the growing wisdom that gender is in reality a fluid concept, it is perfectly reasonable to think about Christmas gifts as ‘gender neutral’ and suitable for all. Read More

Trendy Bathrooms That Combine Gray And Color In Sensational Style!

Contemporary Architecture John Pardey Architects

Contemporary Architecture could be the term used to describe the work of John Pardey Architects. If you take a look at his residential projects the homes are low and beautiful. The Cheeran House caught my eye. There are serval different materials used on the exterior and they work well together. You can’t help but being impressed by the garden and amount of flowers surrounding this structure. The lower level courtyard is minimal amazing. I could sit in there and ponder life all day long. The interiors that we can see are minimal as well, I noticed there wasn’t any art on the walls.

Portos Italian Styled Small Bar Cabinet By Andrea Lucatello

Today we are showing a small bar cabinet in a wonderful Italian style that was designed by Andrea Lucatello.   The fist thing that catches my visual is the contrast between the wood grain and the gray.  Now, I like pieces that are often considering non-conforming as they can make a person stop and do a double take since it does not fall into their normal expectations.   This piece is done in a Canaletto walnut which is clearly striking as the top most pieces.  To the left ad below is matt graphite painted wood which can also come in a white.
