A concrete studio in Seattle

If I could convince husband that our dilapidated garage needs to be replaced with something like this I would be SO stoked! This space designed by Tom Kundig of Olson Kundig would be a dream come true (although maybe in wood instead of concrete). The Brain is a 14,280 cubic-foot cinematic laboratory where the client, a filmmaker, can work out ideas. Physically, that neighborhood birthplace of invention, the garage, provides the conceptual model. The form is essentially a cast-in-place concrete box, intended to be a strong yet neutral background that provides complete flexibility to adapt the space at will. Inserted into the box along the north wall is a steel mezzanine. All interior structures are made using raw, hot-rolled steel sheets.

Minimalism in Fulham

Modern minimalism in a period building. Midcentury references in a sleek London pad. A sharp contemporay look softened by the thick wool rug and touches of brass. Modern white and clean lined timber accents moves to muted moodiness in the bedroom. Lovely to look at. Even better to stay. The Butterfly in Fulham available for vacation rental via The Plum Guide.

A New York City loft

Another project by Threshold Interiors I had to share because it's SO nice to see a loft not decorated with an industrial vibe. Here the beams are exposed and left natural, the brick is painted white and the new kitchen (which unfortunately covers some of those glorious windows) is classic in design. The result is much more homey and charming.

A Craftsman beach house

What a fabulous beach house designed by Threshold Interiors! This Jersey Shore Craftsman is so pleasing to the eye with lots of fun touches like graphic floor tile (and fireplace surround), wallpaper (love that Farrow & Ball Aranami pattern in the bathroom), and the bathrooms are absolutely stunning. And what about this kitchen!! Subway tile, copper, and pale grey cabinets make it timeless and polished.

Vintage style in the West Village

"Designing a functional lifestyle goes well beyond beauty. It is an expression of where you are in your life. Your home should support you, showcase your interests and allow you to feel grounded."

It's about personal style and comfort, about surrounding yourself with what matters and what makes your heart sing. This West Village condo is the designer's own home created from a once soulless warehouse conversion. Now? Well now it goes beyond trends and tells the story of a life well lived and loved.
