    Modern Lake Home

    Who said lake homes had to be campy and cozy without any real design aesthetic. Well, they're wrong. We spotted this beautiful modern lake home and decided to furnish it in our dreams...

    The key to designing a clean aesthetic that still falls under the category of natural and organic is all about the materials. The form will keep it modern with clean lines and minimal frill.

  • Gallery Walls: Modern Bathroom Decor

    Bathroom Decor

    Unexpected design is the best design. It’s always an exciting moment when your guests are oohed and awed by your space. One secret weapon is a gallery wall. Collections of art create beautiful moments in a space. One room that you don’t expect to see art is in the bathroom. That’s exactly why you should try it! Especially in the powder room. You will be the talk of the town.

    Above we see a clean bathroom space with a simple gallery. It feels modern and fresh. The colors in the art pieces flow together, giving it a very cohesive feel. The mirror and trim above the tile also stand out with the art wall.

    Art Galleries

    This powder room is awesome and dramatic. The deep charcoal walls allow the white matting in the art pieces to pop. I’m loving how it’s an eclectic collection of art, posters and letters. In this case, more is better!

    Wall Decor

    This is a great example of how a little detail can make a big impact. These small prints are water-falling down the mirror in such a delicate way. And to think, all it takes is pictures and tape. Easy peezy!

    Modern Bathroom Design

    If you’ve ever wondered how to dress up your toilet area, add simple shelving, some great art and a few accessories to snazz it up. This is also a great option if you’re not wanting to do an entire gallery wall.

  • Art Scene: A + D Never Built Los Angeles

    Art Scene

    Never Built Los Angeles explores the "what if" of Los Angeles architecture. Above is a shot of what LAX was maybe going to look like. Now, as we all know the middle section exists as a restaurant and the terminals are across the street.... and not under a super cool glass dome.

    You don't want to miss this exhibit that runs through October 13th at the Architecture and Design Museum. The exhibit asks why L.A. is a center for great architects, yet lacking in urban innovation? The show features illustrations, renderings, blueprints and models to show the power of architectural ideas.

  • Work the Room: Skype's Modern Office Decor

    Modern Office Decor

    Location, location, location. So goes the adage for real estate, and it may as well apply to offices too. When it comes to recruiting top talent, modern office decor is one detail that Silicon Valley's top players are taking notice of these days.

    Skype recently unveiled their new North American headquarters in Palo Alto, California. And this is one nice place to work. The office embodies the creative spirit of an internet start-up with ample open spaces...and Foosball tables!

    Modern Lunchroom

    Brand experience runs throughout the design, from the Skype "mug shots" in the lobby (pictured at the top of this post), to city maps on the lunchroom wall clocks, symbolizing the company's global reach.

    Branded Offices

    One gets a sense from the minimalist desks, pocket "parks" and open seating dotting the interior that this is a paper-free, wireless office environment.

    And this is the truth of the new economy, isn't it? Work is digital, collaborative and fun, which means offices should be bright, open spaces. The new Skype offices rely heavily on contemporary pendant lighting. Here's our homage to some of the predominant Skype styles:

    If an environment of talent, innovation, and ultimately, dedication is what companies are looking for in the 21st century, it appears that office decor is part and parcel to fostering such a mindset.
