Reader's home #1

I've got a few reader's home to share with you on this (TGI) Friday. The first is from Jenn Feagans: "I am an aspiring interior designer. I would love to submit pictures of my home if you are interested. I have a humble budget and currently live in the suburbs, but do my best to bring style and personality with a mid-century modern feel. My previous home was a mid-century modern home in the Ridgewood subdivision in St. Louis, Missouri designed by the architect Burton Duenke. It was modeled after the California Contemporary style. We remodeled the kitchen and tried to stay true to the original feel of the home while bringing in contemporary style. Our current home is more traditional, but have tried to incorporate classic mid-century modern style. We have a mixture of designer pieces including George Nelson and Saarinen, and also have newer contemporary. We have a passion for vintage and antique finds that we bring to the mid-century inspired style." (Note: The last 5 photos are from Jenn's previous home, and the rest are from her current one).

Reader request - masculine decor

Reader request time! This one comes from Kristín: "My best friend just moved in to his new fab flat, and here's the best part: He's letting me decorate it! Ive been searching some picture for inspiration, and I was thinking something masculine in grey-blue colours. I still havn't found anything though, so I was hoping you might have some pictures?" I don't think masculine has to be blue and grey so I went through my stash and found some spaces (mostly living rooms and a couple bedrooms) that I personally think would generally appeal to the average guy, that aren't necessarily bathed in "manly" colours.

ONG&ONG

More hot Singapore design. We've focused on apartments before but there are a lucky few who possess that most valuable of quantities on this populous island state .... land no matter how small. These stunning conservation architecture homes are in Singapore's conservation zones. Many are shop houses but behind their immaculately preserved historical facades hide stunning modern homes where every square inch is devoted to living life well. All were designed by one of South-East Asia's leading architectural firms ONG&ONG. Beautiful, considerate of heritage and spatially clever! More after the jump.

Susan Gilmore

I would love to go on and on about the photography of the talented Minneapolis-based Susan Gilmore but it's 8 pm here in Ottawa and 40 degrees celsius and I think my brain is melting and about to come pouring out of my ears, so all I'll say is this woman has shot some of the most gorgeous drool-on-my-laptop kitchens I've seen in a VERY long time.
