  • Interior Architecture: Modern Warehouse Conversion

    • 1 Comments

    Modern Warehouse Conversion

    The pure attention to the details of interior architecture is why the work of Fearon Hay Architects captivates me.This minimal design of this 1960's fabric warehouse conversion in Auckland, New Zealand is functional and straight-forward. My eyes gloss over at the sight of the detailing of those rosewood framed doors.

    The gorgeous fabrics rolls spread out over the space make a bold statement while the architecture accentuates the beauty of each piece without trying to fight it.

    Pivot Doors

    The form of each of the chairs and table (above) adds a sculptural element within the space. Raw, concrete floors, white walls, and modern accent chairs will help you achieve the modern and industrial look like the space above.

    Of course you know we love lighting, and if I could add just one element to this design it would be a simple modern pendant light.

    Modern Door Detail

    The rosewood framed doors are able to separate the room physically, but not visually. Now this is what design is all about; the thin rosewood frame, sleek handle, and the most beautiful part of it all, the brass detailing. It's these elements that separate the men from the boys when it comes to good design.

  • Room With a View: Modern San Francisco Home

    • 0 Comments

    San Francisco Home

    This modern San Francisco home has a newly added room with a view, making you wonder what the street possibly did without this modern addition.... And that's saying a lot, considering it's a really pretty San Francisco street. The modern structure fits in well with the neighboring homes, but the bold black hue makes it really stand out.

    Metal Bridge

    The metal bridge stretches and connects the newly added room to a patio. The vairous shades of gray between the bridge, patio and structure work perfectly together and are accented beautifully with the landscaping. Modern outdoor furniture, maybe even with some pops of color, would be the perfect addition to this space.

    Folding Screen

    A perforated screen folds down over the south-facing facade of the newly added room to prevent overheating during the day. When the screen is raised, the home has amazing views of the San Francisco bay. The inside of this added room is white, clean and modern. Simple pendant lighting is the perfect choice when you want to keep a room minimal.

    Here's a little round up to help you achieve a chic, modern dining room like the one in this cool San Francisco home. Although we may not be able to live in a home this cool and with that view, we can still find elements of inspiration that we can apply to our own home.

  • Modern Penthouses: NYC's Top Properties

    Modern Penthouses in New York

    In the big apple, the hottest residential properties are the ones that literally sit on top of it all. Whether you're writing a down-payment check or just salivating over the thought of it like me, there's no denying the allure of New York's building-topping, showstopping spaces (such as Jill Stuart's edgy apartment above).

    There's hardly a bad view from the 52nd floor of the Bloomberg Tower either:

    Central Park Penthouse Views

    What could be more appropriate than Warhol's soup cans in the kitchen? Does everyone in New York have an art collection to die-for (or to at least retire on)?

    Modern Penthouse Kitchens

    And who says there's no view of the sky, stars or trees in the city?

    Rooftop Gardens New York City

    Generous use of wood extends the natural theme of this lower Manhattan penthouse apartment to the indoors. Distinctive pendant lights and modern recessed lighting maintain the contemporary feel.

    At a decent altitude, light and space are easy to come by in the city, as in this spacious Chelsea penthouse by designer Marie Burgos.

    Burgos has also applied her magic to a loft in Tribeca. I love the modern pendant lights that hangs overhead and sought out the design at Euro Style Lighting. This style works for kitchen islands as well as dining room tables.

    Sure, a penthouse apartment in New York will cost a bundle. Infusing your home with the aesthetic however (minus the view) is much less cost-prohibitive.
