This modern expansion by DOSIS is quite the futuristic home. I like that the structure looks so “ultra modern” but the interiors don’t feel that way at all, in fact they almost feel a little mid century. The copper fireplace hood is a nice feature and has a nice patina. The exterior panels remix me of airplanes how they are riveted on, “ultra deco?”, ya I just made that up.
This Hollywood Hills mid century by Edward H. Fickett was recently bought by actor James Marsden. Hey James, nice choice!. There are so many things to love about this house. Mid century elements can be found throughout but there are a couple of items that stood out to me. The angular lines of the swimming pool create a not so typical shape that houses the pool and spa. The interiors are just right with exception of a few pieces that don’t belong (just my opinion). The bathrooms, kitchen and pool were all renovated and updated and I must say I think they did a great job not to push it to far.
This beach side mid century home by architect John Floydd is perfect. IF you had the money, what a cool beach house this would be. The house was completed in 1962 by Floydd and he is still practicing today. I am usually not a brown color palette guy but there is just something about these interiors that I really like. The harmony of the of color palette works so well together. The slatted ceilings are key, I know I sound like a broken record.
This modern brownstone located in Chicago is a perfect example of simple and clean modern. There is beauty in simple clean lines and that is exactly what is found throughout these interiors. The house revolves around an intricate steel staircase that has many parts but it is still quite understated. The stone and brick found through out the interiors reminds us of the past while adding diversity in texture. The marble pedestal sink it quite amazing.
These modern holiday homes by Cheshire Architects are beautifully constructed small homes for the perfect get away. The burt exterior juxtaposed with the lighter plywood interiors is a great contrast giving a more open feel inside. I think it would be so fun to have a spot like this that you could run away to for a weekend. This series of homes was meant to fell like boats bobbing in a sea of grass. There is a nice little video as well.
Minimalism is alive and well in Sao Paulo Brazil. The minimal interiors of this home were design by Isay Weinfeld. My favorite room has to be the bedroom (second picture) for so many reasons. The bed is an amazing piece by Joaquim Tenreiro, it alone makes this space for me. The interiors make me feel like I am looking through a contemporary art museum due to the minimal approach. Could this look be pulled off with non designer pieces?
