A touch of mid-century modern in a Long Beach home

I wanted to share this project by Amber Sokolowski of Soko Design because it shows how to inject personality into a home without much architectural interest. A fireplace in the dining room is a great feature, and despite it being somewhat oddly placed, is now a focal point when wrapped in graphic tile. Love the teak dining set adding some mid-century funk and adore the large scale artwork in the foyer.

The furniture includes a mix of designer furniture and lighting, eclectic collected vintage pieces and custom-made items designed by the designers B.E Architecture.

Urban oasis

A new extension hidden from the street. Contemporary meets heritage. Walls of glass versus walls of Federation red brick. Inside and out merge while light and cool breezes cross thresholds of sliding glass. Travertine floors and timber slat ceilings. Serene and introspective, the perfect urban oasis. Nolan House by Melbourne-based architectural firm Coy Yiontis.

Golden glow

Edgy, cool and glamorous. If the copper in the kitchen of this extension to what is a heritage home isn't enough bling for you, wait until you see the gold ceiling. Minimalist, luxurious, impeccably detailed, highly functional and unique in it's materiality - Adelaide Residence 4 by Enoki.

A modern lakeside cabin in Montana

Sitting lightly on its site this modern take on a log cabin just shows that "cabin" does not equate with roughing it. Simple, stylish and taking advantage of a stunning view. What more could you want? How about a boathouse studio as well? Northshore Cabin by Pearson Design Group.
