I am willing to bet that you have seen some of Naomi Finlay’s photography in one of your favorite interior design magazines. I asked Naomi if I could share some of her amazing portfolio and she graciously said yes. The human element is what really brings scale and functionality to these images. I think it is always intriguing to see the owners of the place that you are admiring, somehow it either validates the space or ads a twist to what you may have assumed. Naomi is obviously talented and well versed in the skills of lighting.
I recently came across Italy based Be Modern, they have a stunning selection of Scandinavian and Brazilian designed furnishings. They also have a section where they show projects that they have worked on. “Be Modern is a project curated by Cinzia Ferrara and Monika Unger, both architects and passionate and knowledgeable collectors of mid Century Design.” It is very evident that Cinzia and Monika share the same love of mid century design as many of us do and they have some fantastic show rooms and displays.
This modern wooded home fits right in with it woodland surroundings. The inside does feel a little cabin like but maybe that was the intent. The kitchen is great with the mix of dark cabinets and lighter wood and the bright red rug looks really striking. The interiors are definitely eclectic and create a lot of textures and colors to look at.
There is something comforting and warming about this modern addition by Vudafieri Saverino Partners. The glass tower ads dimensions of new but still ties into the existing architecture. The interiors are calming as well with all the art and relics nicely placed through out.
Architecture from the 1960s in the Italian Alps, transformed by a glass tower to connect all three levels and bring the outdoor garden inside. The interiors feature traditional wood and stones from the region creating a contemporary design that conserves the rigorous - almost monastic - spirit of the typical local architecture .
The Fannin project by Chris Nguyen has a more tailored masculine feel compared to his Reeves Residence project, which is mid century to the “T”. I am liking the dark walls found throughout the interiors, it really lets the lighter colored pieces stand out. Chris also has a way of grouping objects and layering textures, that really work well together. Make sure to check out the rest of his work.
Found Associates has a stellar portfolio with some fantastic modern additions to some not so modern structures. The juxtaposition of these two styles of architecture are different but they feel as though they are playing nice. The interiors of these projects are amazing, clean lined with layers of texture. There are so many cool features in these pictures, the orange kitchen island, the orange and green bathroom, and the first pic in all it’s masculine glory.
