The following photos are of a 500 square foot apartment in Chicago that was renovated and decorated by architect Peter Roesch and his wife. They have since sold it to friends, furniture included. It's simple, modern and clean-lined, with tons of storage to keep it clutter-free.

The architecture and design firm of Bockman Forbes + Glasgow are masters of mixing the old with the new. Modern with traditional. It's my favourite combination, because it's unexpected and exciting. "The studio's design philosophy adheres to modern spatial relationships, a graphic silhouette, a refined use of materials and a strong, sophisticated color palette. Whether combining a cherry-red Regency chandelier with a Saarinen lounge chair or refinishing a classical column in white lacquer, it's the Studio's unique ability to reinterpret the classics that give all their projects that "wow" factor."
The firm of Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects began in the late 60's with Jim Olson, who based his designs on some simple ideas: "that buildings can serve as a bridge between nature, culture and people, and that inspiring surroundings have a positive effect on people’s lives." And as you will see by the photos below, it is absolutely breathtaking how the interior blends with the exterior. I always dreamed of huge glass garage doors that I could open and suddenly be outside. *sigh*
I've loved this shelving unit for such a long time. I can't even remember where I first saw it. An online magazine photo pool? In print in the hundreds of shelter magazines I can't throw away? At last though I have found the architects, Meyer Davis. The rest of their portfolio is just as inspiring. Timeless and chic, modern yet classic.
Brownstowe are a multidisciplinary design firm from Melbourne. Clean contemporary lines distinguish their work. Minimalist but oh so liveable their work is not precious but beautifully considered. Check out the rest of their portfolio including refurbishment of 60s and 70s apartment blocks here.
