The Mill Valley courtyard residence by Aidlin Darling Design is everything I would want in a contemporary home. Clear story windows, glass courtyard, wood slatted ceilings and the list could go on and on. I really like the art work inside of the courtyard, interesting use of windshields. I love that it is all one level with sprawling geometric planes. I have to commend the owners on their choice of furnishings as well. You have to take the time to check out the rest of their projects, Aidlin Darling Design is ahead of the game for sure.
These Landmark Limestone interiors by Kiki Dennis are a beautiful mix of mid century modern. Theres no missing that Vladimir Kagan chair in the first picture, that is a piece of art all on its own. There are amazing pieces found through each room of the house. I love the contrast here, these are probably not the typical interiors you would expect to find in a structure like this. Everything works so well even with all of that wood paneling and molding.
This Modern Single Family Home by M-Projects is a great example of newer finishes mix with mid century and contemporary pieces. The fireplace sitting has to be one of my favorite spaces. The book matched marble is an art piece in its own right. Interiors like these are like a treasure hunt trying to spot the pieces of furniture that you love and maybe already have in your collection. I did notice the skylights that funnel light down to the lower floors, smart.
These architectural renderings by Adam Spychała are not your typical run of the mill drawings. I typically do not post pictures of renderings because I like to look at the real thing but these are quite imaginative. I really like the concrete structures in their extreme angular lines. They have a strong brutalism feel wile being a unique geometric structure. These are only a few of his designs, make sure to click over to see all of them, he is quite talented.
This pool house by Steven Vandenborre is a place I would like to be right now. The white clean minimal boxes with the blue tinted glass is such a wonderful thing to look at. I certainly would not mind what is the garage either. Those walls of glass appear to open wide multiplying living space. To build a home like this I am sure it is in a mild climate. This project was completed in 2009, it just goes to show that clean modern design can live forever.
This refurbished beach house by Andy Martin Architects is a stunning example of color and texture. I am a big fan of Andy Martin work so I was excited to see a new project. This edwardian home in west London received a modern addition to the back of the home providing wide open public spaces. The rest of the original home was kept as private areas. I like how each area of the home has some what of its own personality. The use of color and texture are fun but very sophisticated.
