I don't know how I missed the reveal of this incredibly awesome townhouse last year in the New York Times. Owned by Beastie Boys' Mike D, he lives in this 3200 sq ft Brooklyn home built in 1853 with his wife and 2 boys, and they spent 6 months and about $500K on renovations. The result is phenomenal - eclectic and funky decor that works so well with the traditional architecture. I love all of the touches of brass throughout (especially the kitchen *GASP*), and the fun Brooklyn Toile wallpaper (from Flavor Paper) was designed by Mike. I could just pack up my clothes and the cats and hubby and move right in without changing a single thing.
This modern bachelor pad designed by San Francisco interior designer Regan Baker really hits all the right notes. Love the lightest and the touches of orange and blue throughout, and it is not too masculine. The overall color pallet was derived from his uncle’s large scale highway artwork, which is now displayed proudly above the custom sofa. From there we built the design around his love for modern spaces, his personal hobby of photography and his love for music. With the exception of a few great pieces of art, we worked hand in hand with our client to assure his bachelor pad was masculine, yet casual modern and in the end created a bachelor pad Ryan Gosling would be happy to bring his dates back to.

That's what the print says and that may be true ... or not :) What I am noticing though is the demise of the overstuffed, the over thought, the over tweaked, the overdone. I love this Eagle Rock, California house Bestor Architecture. Stylish but casual, family friendly and just right for everyday living. And who could say no to a half pipe in the backyard?
