  • Modern Architecture: Tree Houses

    Modern Architecture

    Do you have a fascination for modern tree houses? We do! So we've rounded up a few of our favorites. This is where we wish we could spend our weekend...

    These tree houses, from around the world, aren't for kids, they're real modern architecture, in trees!

    Sometimes when life gets a little challenging, I think we would all love to escape to deep in the forest and hide in a tree house.

    These tiny homes add a whole new meaning to 'bringing the outdoors in', are we right?!

  • A Modern Cabin in Northern California

    Modern Cabin Design and Northern California

    With winter coming on in full force, we thought you would enjoy a little greenery.

    This modern cabin seamlessly blends in with its Northern California forest setting. Upright wood siding echoes the surrounding redwood and pine tree trunks. Planted roofs evoke the forest canopy and help to protect the roof against sun damage.

    And we love the way they used cylindrical and modern outdoor lighting to subtly illuminate the entryways and a small seating area.

  • Schindler Houses in Inglewood - Seeing Double

     Two Schindler houses in Inglewood

    A pair of Rudolph M. Schindler houses in the Inglewood suburb of Los Angeles have been remodeled and brought into the 21st century. Schindler, of course, is one of the icons of California Mid-Century Modernism, with well-documented homes such as the Kings Road House in West Hollywood.

      Seeing Double and Schindler houses in Inglewood

    These gems are off the beaten path a bit and it's wonderful to see them brought back to life in a way that respects the line and form of the original plans.

    Each has a prim two-bedroom, one-bath floor layout, with an open, airy look that makes the modern furniture look right at home.

    The house profiled in this LA Times article had changed hands but twice in 70 years and still had the original doors and windows and contemporary lighting fixtures.

    What's neat is that both houses sit side by side, right next to each other. In addition to the pair of homes, there is another Schindler house just down the street!

  • An Innovative New York Apartment Under 500 Square Feet

    Innovative Design

    If you think living in New York means tight spaces and high rents, you're right. But this innovative apartment takes it to another level. Somehow, the builders were able to fit a kitchen, bathroom, loft bedroom, home office and storage in this 500 sq ft space!

    Modern Loft Living

    The key to this smart design is using vertical space. There is a built-in wooden core that holds the kitchen and bedroom spaces. 

    Modern wall sconces and clean modern furniture help conserve space. The stairs leading up to the loft bedroom contain a storage drawer in each stair. No space was left unused. 

    Micro Living

    This innovative interior design allows the small apartment to function like a much larger space in a very small footprint.

  • Hot Color Combo: Yellow & Gray

    Pump up your style with the slate gray and vibrant yellow color combination. The gray hue plays it safe, while the bright yellow commands the spotlight. Paired together they balance each other out to create an exciting interior! I love the gray and yellow color scheme in a living room, dining room, or heck just about in any room in the house. Below are a few of my favorite examples of the yellow and gray color combo.

    The hot color combo is tied into the living room (above) in a few different ways. I love this example and how it shows you that even with an abundant use of gray and yellow, the space is not overwhelming.

    Kate Spade's Bedroom and Gray and Yellow Bedroom

    Design powerhouse Kate and Andy Spade can't be wrong! Their yellow and gray designer bedroom was featured on the cover of World of Interiors Magazine.The gray wall treatment is a neutral backdrop to the bright yellow striped headboard.

    Don't forgot about the kitchen. HGTV Canada's design team Colin & Justin made a bold statement with the bright yellow cabinetry. It definitely adds a fun, playful element to the kitchen.
