  • Outfit to Interior: Relaxed + Comfortable

    Outfit to Interior

    Being both relaxed and comfortable are keys to wardrobe and interior styling! Finding pieces that make you feel like the best version of yourself are worth the time and effort, just ask Ms. Relaxed & Comfortable.

    Modern Wall Lighting

    Hallways, consoles and entries all benefit from a little extra lighting love. Ms. R&C loves the warm bronze and amber glass of the Murray Feiss Wall Sconce for warming up shadowy corners and nooks.
     
    The Nico Bronze Besa Wall Light with its stone gold foil glass lives happily in any reading corner or next to your bed. Our girl has one over each nightstand for when midnight snack cravings strike!

    Modern Entryway

    Warm woods can't help but be welcoming, just like the Daniel Dark Wood Console Table that sits in Ms. Relaxed & Comfortable's entryway. It's a great spot to corral mail, keys, and portable electronics as well as a place to set up a mini bar for entertaining guests. Versatility.

    The same thing holds true for faux bois, in this case the Dark Weegee Table Lamp. The brushed metal legs of this table lamp paired with the dark shade give this lamp a feeling of delicate substantiality that is verycozy indeed.

    Modern Dining Chair

    This set of Laine Wood and Faux Leather Dining Chairs are just asking for a late night chat around the table, fireplace blazing in the near distance. Ms. Relaxed & Cozy like to serve up her signature Hot Toddys while she and her best gals chat away and solve life's puzzles while curled up in these cozy seats.

  • 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.

    Scope Chrome With Black Modern Zuo Dining Chair

    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 Desk Chair

    I’ve been more than a little obsessed with finding the “perfect” desk chair. As I pin away looking for workspace inspiration I’m constantly asking myself “could I see myself sitting in that chair?” Because everyone knows, a modern chair is the key to any stylish home office.

    That’s why I decided to pick my favorite office chairs I’d put in my very own workspace. These three options will have you inspired while you’re working.

    Translucent Desk Chair

    Zuo Anime Transparent Modern Set of 4 Dining Chairs

    There are tons of styles to choose from – modern, traditional, a regular desk chair – you get my drift.

    White Office

    Pascal White Plastic Side Chairs

    It’s high time we jazz things up in your office space and all of these options will do the trick.

    Minimal Design

    Wishbone Y Natural Wood Side Chairs

    I hope one of these options strikes your fancy and has you wanting to update your space.

  • 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. 

    mid century arts

    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.
