International Style Home By Louis Giles Jr

This International Style Home built in 1960 by Louis Giles Jr. is currently on the market. The house has such a unique persona. There is a bit of an institutional feel to the architecture here. When entering the house you can’t help being overwhelmed by the shear volume of the interiors. The current owners have some nice eye candy placed throughout their house. The aluminum framed windows on the back of the house are quite impressive. Kudos to the landscape architects as everything works in harmony and only enhances the structure.

Home Amore Project: French & Scandinavian Style Mix

What images does the phrase “Scandinavian style” conjure up in your mind? We can’t say for sure, but whatever interior you imagined, we can tell you at the 99% level that it had a perfectly neutral, apparently white background. And for sure this interior was quite laconic and minimalistic. Minimalism, in turn, implies the presence of solely essential furnishing and décor. In Home Amore project by RIS Interior Design (Taiwan) the walls are also light and for the most part white and the furnishing component is represented only by must-haves. But unlike pure Scandinavian interiors, its austere furniture and décor is touched by the spirit of French style. Speaking metaphorically, in this apartment Scandinavian style created kind of a canvas for elegant and unostentatious French motifs. And we suggest that you have a closer look at each of the rooms… Read More

Dream Country House Interior In Scandinavian & English Style

A young family couple with a new-born kid was dreaming about having a cozy nest close to the nature. And the interior was supposed to be inviting for rest and serenity and letting fully feel and enjoy the comfort of living in the countryside. But it is one thing to build a house from scratch. And it is another thing to be able to rebuild and turn an old frame of logs to advantage. And that is exactly what the masters wanted to do: they had an old five-walled log house with a vintage masonry heater that they wanted to restore and preserve. To make all their dreams come true, the architect put an extension to the old house and organized there an entry room and an open-concept living room and kitchen. Also, she added an attic with a bedroom, a walk-in closet, a bathroom and a small lounge. Read More

Family Apartment In American Style: Brutality & Classics

When the architects and designers of this apartment first met their clients, they were relieved to hear their wishes. Both parties were staring off in the same direction. A young, yet already big family, wished to turn their downtown Moscow apartment into a classical American house. And what is American style? Bold and brash Americans adore to mix designer cocktails, the ingredients of which are borrowed from Spanish, French, Scandinavian, Greek, Italian and other styles. Considered as a kind of “advanced acrobatics” is the ability to link plenty of stylistic quotations within a single space and do it so that a new extraordinary story was born in the end. Read More

Mid Century Style Home By Struere

This mid century style home by Struere looks and feels the part. When I first saw pictures of this home, I for sure thought it was older but turns out it was a newer small house built on an existing piece of property that already had a home on it in Hollywood Hills. The small one bedroom house feels larger due to the courtyard and many large floor to ceiling windows. I always get excited when I see new construction that looks like mid century architecture. It gives me hope that someday, even if I can’t find a nice MCM house to fix up I could certainly build something that looks and feels the part. In picture three you get a glimpse of what looks to be the original structure that share the same lot and from what I can see both designs play well together. Read More
