Egide Meertens has some stunning architectural designs in their portfolio. Their minimal interiors are a beautiful match the exteriors of their modern homes. I love the sleek liner planes and surfaces. They create open spaces at any scale. The color palettes are beautiful with all of their wood, white and black. I don’t know if people are actually living in some of these minimal spaces or were they just styles for the photos. Either way these structures and interiors are some of my favorite.
Interior design by Greg Natale could be described as mid century meets glam with a touch of hollywood regency. Greg is obviously very talented with a range of styles. I really like his boldness in some rooms where pattern is a repetitive element. In other projects he shows a more mellow sophisticated side using a more monochromatic feel. I decided to grab a handful of pictures from different projects so you see his diversity. Make sure to check out the rest of his work.
I am completely consumed by the abstract paintings of Claire Sherman. When I try and imagine these landscapes without the brush strokes of Claire Sherman, some of theme become pretty mundane. I love the expressive insinuation of color and line helping the viewer form their own mental picture. These artworks are mostly on the large size as well = LOVE!. Talk about fitting into a mid century or contemporary setting, these would feel right at home. Favorite new artist!
Tyler Merkel of mid century Michigan is on a mission to document amazing mid century homes in Grand Rapids Michigan. Tyler sent me a message about one of his recent shoots involving one amazing built it rosewood credenza. Anyone that reads Plastolux or follows me on Facebook or Pinterest knows I have a special place in my heart for rosewood and credenzas. Its like the question was “should we put a credenza here or a room divider?”. The answer, “why not both”. The house is simply amazing, I love thet when the owners bought the house they had never heard the term mid century modern. Make sure to click over and see the rest of the house.
The Zoersel House, a Bauhaus style home that was ready for tear down was saved and meticulously restored. In 2005 interior architect Arjaan De Feyter and his wife bought the house which was in total decay and ready for demolition. They did a fantastic job breathing new life into this steel structure. The house was literally stripped down the steel frame, only to find parts of the frame were compromised as well. Now this beautiful translucent box serves as a work space and a home. Make sure to go read the rest of the story.
This Sydney apartment renovation has avery clean rich color palette. The white and black surfaces bring out the deep hues of the wood. I really like all of the textures happening. I am also digging on all of textures happening on the surfaces of this apartment. I don’t know why but I so drawn to the bathroom, so simple and clean.
