Interior designer Lori Dennis sent us these pictures of one of her newest projects in Silver Lake. The young couple, he a lawyer by day and DJ by night and she an event planner hired Lori and her design team to rock their pad. "We built it from the ground up with green techniques. Materials include recycled glass tiles, 3 Form Panels, Modular Art Eco Friendly wall panels, bamboo floors, organic linens, dual flush toilets (weak flush button for yellow, stronger flush for no. 2), eco friendly paint by Benjamin Moore, Earth Plaster walls, AFM Safecoat stain on FSC certified wood custom furniture and recycled content cement counters. It's a super stylin' party pad. Hope you love it!" Do we!! I was going to say the way of future interior design is green and sustainable but it's not the way of the future - it's needed NOW! Great work Lori!
Shannon Rankin, Kyle Gaffney and Brian Collins-Friedrichs began their architectural firm SkB Architects in 1999 in Seattle and in a short amount of time have grown into a highly successful company. Their style is mostly modern but each space feels very warm and inviting. I LOVE the wall in the photo above with the built-in display niche and bookshelf - amazing use of space.
