White on white

Clinton and Diana Grobler of Cape Town, South Africa architecture firm Grobler Architects did quite a number on the cottage. Unfortunately there are no before photos on their website but WOW after some renovating and additions this house is gorgeous! All of the white makes it so calm and fresh. And I really love the kitchen - very cool idea to make everything on the back wall black and the island all white.

Hydeaway house

Have you ever wondered what the vacation home of an architect might look like? Neil Schwartz of Schwartz and Architecture designed this Hydeaway house in Sonona, California for himself, his spouse and their dogs, with the hopes of eventually retiring here. It's 2000 sq ft of midcentury modernism on one acre surrounded by vineyards. The main house sleeps six and a separate guest house sleeps two. Oh - and you can rent it. :-)

Eichler remodel

San Francisco firm Klopf Architecture sent over some details of their latest project. The owners dreamed of an Eichler remodel that they would live in forever. Their vision was clean, contemporary and open. Klopf Architecture would design, and reconfigure bathrooms/laundry areas and upgrade systems to be more efficient. This talented executive mother of five decorated and furnished the home herself. Such a beauty - the centre courtyard is a dream of mine...something to keep all of my cats contained where I don't have to watch their every move. I would be out there all of the time, and the spaciousness of the interior with all of those massive windows is spot on.

Minimalist beauty

It may take a lot of discipline to live the minimalist life (and in this case a lot of money) but, oh, how beautiful is the simple line, the intersection of positive and negative, boxes balanced on manicured lawns, glass walls throwing privacy to the wind. Austere luxury by AABE (Atelier d'Architecture Bruno Erpicum & Partners).

Two beautiful homes in Spain

I had to share these 2 beautiful homes I found on Nuevo Estilo - both are in tune to my architecture and interior design obsessions. This first one I adore - a rustic farmhouse in the country (located in the town of Sant Martí Vell, Girona) that is furnished with antiques mostly from the mid-late 90's. The juxtaposition of eras makes this home so eclectic and intriguing. (Details here)
