Modern Art

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!

+For those of you celebrating Valentines Day all weekend long, Refinery 29 has a fun + romantic playlist. Enjoy! And can we add, what cool artwork too, right?! (above)

+We spotted this really cool house on Dezeen that appears to be one with the hillside in Spain. Wow!

+If you like reading and you agree the cover of the book does in fact matter, then you'll love this project. Several well-known books were re-designed with simple, graphic styles. Sort of makes you want to read some of them over again...

+Do you follow digital design mag Rue like we do? Then you'll love a new daily feature they've added to their brand. Now, we won't have to wait between issues for great content from the Rue team.

+We're always keep our eye out for cool street art. Check out Michael Owen's Baltimore Love Project featuring designs of four hands spelling out the word love. They're large scale, bold and eye catching.
