Love the Yankees or hate the Yankees, they're always in the playoffs come October. And with that, it seems appropriate to pay tribute to the finer points of design with the luxury suites at the new Yankee Stadium.
In New York, America's past-time is all about luxury. With 56 luxury suites (compared to 19 in the old stadium), there's no shortage of big-ticket seating or big-ticket spenders. The Legends Suite (below) sets a muted mood in Yankees blue and white. Under cabinet lights and glowing frosted glass will help set the mood for any luxe interior.
The Audi Yankees Club is built for fans who want to keep their eyes fixed upon the field. European-inspired styling is sparse and functional with the right touch of class. In this case, turf centerpieces by floral designer Rachel Cho.
Everywhere you turn, there seems to be another suite. The Yankees Club suite (below) keeps things thematic yet elegant. Hi-definition screens play the game throughout the stadium, in case anyone forgets why they're at the ball park.
Top shelf amenities aren't just for the paying customers. With luxe tile finishes and frosted glass, the locker rooms are in step with the seven and eight figure salaries of the players who use them. Adding some bath bar lights in your home bathroom might help you feel almost as luxe.
At $1.5 billion, the new Yankee Stadium which opened in 2009, is a model of modern commercial design and the second most expensive stadium ever built in the world. However, with high-priced luxury boxes and VIP lounges becoming the new standard among stadiums and arenas, it might not be long before we see price-tags like this on a regular basis around the company.

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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.

The rooms are minimal, full of natural light and feature brilliant views of the city.
Custom wallpaper makes a bold statement in the guestrooms allowing the black accents to really pop against.
A minimal black desk lamp can stand alone when paired with a contrasting material, such as cool reclaimed wood. The modern black leather chairs look as cozy as could be and are placed in a perfect spot to sip coffee and enjoy the views these beautiful windows provide.
