Gray Organschi

The firm of Gray Organschi Architecture is based in New Haven, Connecticut has a portfolio that is total eye candy and such a wide variety of randomness. They've designed a footbridge, a storage barn, a firehouse converted into a music studio, a converted church, garden pavillions (VERY cool; see last three photos of this post) and many more. Here are some of my favourite of their residential work.

The natural (brown) collection

I'm having a design crisis. I'm finding myself drawn to brown. Not just brown but neutrals, no ... naturals, maybe wood ... and stone ... maybe brick. Grass and feathers and gnarly old branches next to turned bowls of eggs and seed pods. It's clutter and collections and brown .... brown ... natural ... oh and copper and brass and antiques and hemp and sisal and hand made furniture and back to brown. It's driving me crazy but I can't help it. I found this home in the countryside just outside Berrima in New South Wales on my regular real estate stalking and I should be running screaming shouting "no", "no", "no" but ... I'm kind of hooked. It bothers me but perhaps it shouldn't. Link here while it lasts.

Matthew Hranek

Matthew Hranek gets people. He gets the spaces they live in and the lives they lead. He gets it. Then he captures it through the lens of his camera. Homes are lived in. Homes are the people that live in them. Homes live. Just like these three homes from his portfolio via his rep's site.

Jordan Carlyle - more goodies

Here are more goodies care of Jordan Carlyle that are sure to please if post #1 got you all hot and bothered. This first set of photos are I believe from Jordan's old apartment. LOVE the artwork, despite it being a serious boob-fest, and the sophisticated vibe. Following that is an apartment on West 21st St. that is a little less glam but has Jordan's signature HOT style.

Jordan Carlyle - a first glimpse

Jordan Carlyle of NYC interior design firm Carlyle Designs emailed us about his work and thought we'd like to share some of his projects with our readers. You'll see why I didn't hesitate to say yes in a moment. First, a little bit about Jordan: Characterized by earthly surfaces, singular details and keen colors richly layered across an architectural framework, Jordan's designs recast classic elements in modern settings. It's an approach that pays homage to timeless notions of sophistication as surely as it spritzes them with modern zest and sheds the stuffy overtones of elegance to reveal its sexy young skin. Jordan's understanding of the exceptional and his love for the refined continue to be the core of his design philosophy. I was shocked to discover Jordan is only 29, and not only am I already smitten with his work, it turns out he has collection of beautiful custom furnishings (Carlyle Collective) and produces contemporary artwork (for CB2 for over 4 years!) found here. I am thoroughly impressed. So impressed I need to do two posts. To begin, here are two projects - the first is an industrial loft gone elegant, and the second, a dreamy bathroom.
