Bachelor Pad - Base Camp 

DeWayne Lumpkin's design projects always brighten up my day. Quirky, eclectic and totally fun are how I would describe his spaces. This latest project of his is all that and brought a smile to my face. After reading the description I can see why the homeowner is thrilled to bits. (Photos: Nikita Konetski. Previous features here and here)

A non-descript two story home was transformed into a Bachelor Pad – Base Camp for a young, single brickmason. The owner earns his living laying brick and spends his off-time riding his bicycle & rafting the mighty Rogue River in Grants Pass, Oregon. He bought the home as an investment after years of "camping out" in a small house with little furniture and zero style. His goal is to rent the extra bedrooms through airbnb.com and serve as a wilderness guide to his guests with bicycling tours of southern Oregon & rafting trips down the Rogue River. His passions for biking & rafting were a jumping off point for the downstairs designs with a uni-cycle, tri-cycle & folding (flying) bi-cycle taking center stage in the entry & living areas.

The kitchen has two stoves for the morning crush of prepping for guests & hitting the road – animals in winter sweaters play off the "old lady" hanging plates (these came from West Elm). A trio of vintage tomato baskets were morphed into light fixtures above the center island.

The black & white dining room seats up to 10 guests with multiple shooting targets & route numbers from British double-decker buses framed around the room.

A masculine apartment in Berlin

I mentioned in this post last week that I am pretty much head over heals for interior designer Hubert Zandberg. There is no stopping his incredible talent, so here is another one of his latest projects. It is a masculine, earth-toned apartment in Mitte, Berlin and everything is so sooooooooooo good.

A handsome SoHo loft

From a bit feminine in my last post, to a bit masculine with this space. This SoHo loft designed by J+G Design is stylish and functional with blue accents added throughout. I can imagine the male homeowner waiting for Jennifer and Georgie to leave after having these photos taken, then immediately tossing in the trash all those flowers and branches and wondering why in the hell there are 8 pillows on the damn sofa. ;)

A rustic, industrial library by Jamie Banfield

Beautiful slabs of walnut (I'm guessing here), reclaimed wood shelves, raw steel supports, some stunning artwork, a vintage typewriter (this one is incredible, it too is like art) together in a small space make for an ideal cozy library/workspace with a masculine, rustic, industrial feel to it. By Vancouver interior designer Jamie Banfield

Sheep + Stone - Primrose house

I am reeeally loving the vibe of this Los Angeles home designed by Brooklyn-based Sheep + Stone. A bit New York funky, a bit vintage mid-century with a dark, neutral colour palette this place is just really cool and classically modern. The windows in this house are a dream. Makes me want to paint mine black. (Photos: Nicole Franzen)
