  • Modern Hallway Design is Lighting The Way

    Modern Hallway

    An entry hallway sets the tone for your home. It’s the first thing your guests see as they walk into your house. A Modern hallway may seem like ordinary pass-through that doesn't require a second thought, but with a little attention, these spaces can take on a personality of their own.

    No doubt lighting can play a huge roll in modern hallway design. That’s why I’ve pulled together two different ways you can dress up your hallway with lighting – sconces and ceiling lights.

    Modern Hallway Design

    Too often we fall back on the ever-reliable table lamp or typical overhead pendant light — not that there is anything wrong with these options — but maybe it’s time to spruce up your entry with lighting that takes it up a notch! Go for that sconce, pendant or chandelier that you think makes a great statement.

    Cool + Collected is our regular Friday post covering modern lifestyle topics from around the globe. You'll find everything from design icon biographies to modern art, photography and architectural surprises. And of course modern design.

    +We're crushing hard on Australia this week. Could be our yearning for southern latitude sun. Or it could be that the Aussies are just doing design right these days. Whatever it is, we'd  love to summer at the 33M towers in Melbourne.

    +Est magazine is an Australian webzine that's serving up some stunning homes this month under the pretext of "the art of living simply." 

    +If you're in L.A. on Sunday, February 10th, meet us at a Frank Israel designed home for an artist-curated listening party to benefit the Society for the Activation of Social Space through Art and Sound.    

    +For the modern family, we can't get enough of the Qubis Haus, a coffee table turned doll house that all the young Neutra's in your life will go nuts for.  

    +And lastly, we're having a great time this week on our own redesigned Euro Style Lighting website. Shameless plug, yes, but with updated navigation and more robust search features, it's all the more fun to ogle all things modern.

  • Modern Restaurant Design: Superba Snack Bar

    Modern Restaurant Design

    We can't get enough of the unique and innovative modern restaurant design in Venice Beach, CA and we're really crushing on Superba Snack Bar. Venice Beach is always a refreshing local, providing a little fun in the sun with a meal at Superba Snack Bar. This laid back Rose Ave hangout is worth the visit.

    Modern Design

    The midcentury style, surf shack vibe design by Design, Bit***s is crisp and full of energy. We sure love to see a restaurant designing with a minimail, industrial elements.   

    Dining Room Design

    Modern dining chairs that are simple and light-weight oftne times pair perfectly with heavy, over-sized tables. The patterned wool beach blankets thrown about, and also used as upholstery on the back of the banquette seating, add the much needed texture and warmth.

    The mid-century moder lighting is subtle, but still creates a bold statement in this modern restaurant design. And that black and white wallpaper...need I say more?!

    Modern Pendant Lighting

    Donut Red Finish Contemporary Pendant Chandelier

    As you pass by, you'll notice the interior glow and see the modern pendant lights through the windows of this black box design. The crowd flutters about this happening spot so you'll definitely want to drop in.

    The branding package also designed by Design, Bit***s is sharp. Let's go get a closer look at that menu! I heard the Short Rib Ravioli and S'mores dessert are exceptional.

  • Modern Chandeliers: From Fashion Decor to Home Decor

    I always love seeing how current trends and tastes permeate all levels of living -- from the clothes we wear, to the linens we accessorize with. And yes, even lighting!

    As I was perusing ESL's fantastic stock of stylish chandeliers, I couldn't help but be reminded of current jewelry trends I've spotted. I'm especially partial to the drama of the first pairing. What about you?

  • Palm Springs Modernism Week: Postcard from Hotel Lautner

    Hotel Lautner at Palm Springs Modernism Week

    Palm Springs Modernism Week takes the SoCal desert by storm every February. To take a break from this snow-bird's roster of design events, tours and exhibitions (as well as endless unsanctioned parties and pop-ups), consider losing yourself just outside of town in the desert sun at the Hotel Lautner.

    Swimming Pools Palm Springs

    Formerly the iconic Desert Hot Springs Motel, this famed John Lautner property was recently purchased and renovated by Los Angeles based interior designer Tracy Beckmann of Tracy Beckman Design and furniture designer Ryan Trowbridge of Brown + Trowbridge. Although  Beckmann has been making a name for herself for her slick, glammed-up commercial and hospitality spaces, Hotel Lautner is more of an exercise in Modernist provenance, showcasing the designer's love for Mid-Century design.

    Desert Hot Springs Hotel

    This is Madmen gone wild West. Interiors are true to the period with the "Bachelor Pad" room (pictured below) sporty a smoky, low-slung vibe.

    Mid-century Bachelor Pad

     Each room comes with a kitchenette, perfect for mixing a twilight martini. Period ceramics and art dot each of the rooms. We like how ceramic and painted table lamps throughout give each space an authentic vintage feel too.

    Taken all together, this beautiful retreat is hard to leave. Comfortable rooms, a wading pool, BBQ pits, and the experience (if for a day) of living in a Lautner? You can count us in again next February. In the meantime, we'll be re-creating the place at home.
