I don’t think I have featured anything mid century in New Jersey before but this one is nicely done. The majority of MCM homes that have had this much work done have too many contemporary finishes. I feel that the interiors are good but of course I would need some older pieces in the mix. I really appreciate the quality of materials used in the remodel. The kitchen is a stunner, the layout and materials work so well with the post and beam construction. The best feature is the front door and entry way, how amazing is that all glass door running floor to ceiling? Did I mention that the house was for sale?
Modern History is an outstanding mid century store in Melbourne. How do I know it is outstanding? I follow them on Facebook and just about every photo of their store and inventory is top rate. The store front itself is quite nice, having some of the features of mid century architecture. Floors, stone walls and glass entry way make me think of a well designed mcm home. Modern History doesn’t have a full functioning website just yet but make sure to like their page to see all of the eye candy.
These modern concrete floors, countertops and other projects by AtelierB are nicely crafted. I have always like the flexibility of concrete. It seems like it can be used in almost any application. I love the concrete wall panels and stools, they have a nice industrial feel to them. From the looks of it AtelierB know concrete floors. They appear as glass and are such a nice interior surface.
Fabio Fantolino has a special hand when it comes to making contemporary feel warm and inviting. The shapes and design found through these spaces are very geometric and linear which can become cold and hard. The materials used in the floors, walls and furniture help create that warmth. The use of different woods stood out to me. Woods of different species can instantly warm up a space while providing texture an pattern.
Lorenzo Pennati has an amazing and full portfolio containing beautifully captured interiors. I ran across his work on the Behance network and took the time to look through every one of his shoots. The way these interior scenes are captured enhance details the viewer may miss. In photo number three, is the ceiling light fixture for real, because it is amazing. I feel like some of the spaces are dream scales full of “untouchable” furnishings.
This contemporary extension by naturehumaine is quite the juxtaposition. The owners needed more space than their small 1920’s house but they wanted something more modern. Many of you know that I love this type of addition, I wonder how the neighbors feel. The volumes created in the new addition with the high ceilings are amazing. I can also appreciate the interior finishes, clean and simple.
