The midcentury home of a designer couple

This ranch-style home in the Hollywood Hills is an absolute dream. Owned by designers Ryan Brown and Diego Monchamp of Brown Design Group, they completely renovated the home making it much more open-plan. The new design is much more modern but they added midcentury touches to pay homage to its origins. I adore the kitchen/dining space - and whatdoyaknow, there's some tumbling block tile again! :)

Light and bright in Spain

Crisp, contemporary lines within an older building. White walls bounce light while splashes of colour in furnishings and art, wide oak planks, original posts and warm wood tones ensure that the spaces are not sterile. Casa CC58 in Barrio Salamanca, Madrid by Lucas y Hernández-Gil Arquitectos.

Le 205

Step inside the unassuming facade of this 1950s warehouse and you'll find a minimalist open plan home. Hints of the building's industrial past remain but as a shell that contains this super slick modern space. Seamless Corian benches, stainless steel, strip lighting and painted concrete play against a mix of contemporary and mid century furniture. I would, however be more at ease with this house if they would just move the shaving mirror away from the ethanol heater. Ouch! Is it a clue that the owner is hot stuff?

Main Street House

This simple and modern structure is my ideal new-build home (minus all the corrugated steel on the exterior - I am not a fan of that stuff). Concrete floors so cats can run amok as they do and I won't have to scream, pale wood and white walls as a lovely backdrop for furnishings and art while not losing focus of the architecture, some exposed beamed ceilings, an abundance of large windows, and a streamlined outdoor space. Another successful project in Seattle by SHED Architecture & Design. (Check out past features here and here)

Steel butterfly

A concrete, glass and steel butterfly alighting on a Californian meadow. Wings spread in the sun. Light on the land despite its monumental materials. An owner's dream. An architect's creation. The Butterfly house by Feldman Architecture.
