BLACKBARN

Posted on Thu, 13 Dec 2018 by KiM

This is designer Mark Zeff‘s getaway in the Hamptons. He was inspired by the simple form and straightforward construction of farm buildings but by adding black to the exterior and some dark stained wood walls and concrete floors in the interior (among other things) it is decidedly modern. It’s sleek, understated, refined, and pretty much perfect.

Italian minimalism

Come on. Join me. Jump into the portfolio of Naples-based Giuliano Andrea dell’Uva Architetti. It’s a masterclass in contemporary Italian design! Because that hotel in Capri in the previous post just wasn’t enough.

Another remarkable project from the talented team of L’agence Véronique Cotrel. This time it’s the complete renovation, layout, and decoration of a 60 m2 apartment in Saint Germain des Prés. From an architectural point of view, the fundamentals were totally restored. The original wood beams were uncovered from beneath layers of plaster. The kitchen, a bit of an awkward space is a total gem with stunning tile and brass accents. It’s odd they chose dark uppers and lighter lower cabinets but hey – in Paris anything goes!

A modern remodel in California

Posted on Wed, 31 Oct 2018 by midcenturyjo

“The scope of work included an extensive remodel of the existing 3,204 sq. ft. home with an 815 sq. ft. new addition for the master suite. The challenge of this residence was to unify a hyper traditional exterior façade, strictly limited by the historic classification of the neighborhood, with an unexpectedly contrasted interior. Similarly, the extremely traditional layout was reworked to create less restricted spaces and to utilize the privacy of the rear yard.”

From 1921 to 2018, a beautiful renovation, clean lined yet earthy, rich and tactile while simple and soothing. Van Ness by the second L.A. based studio for today Simo Design.

A field of rooms

“A house composed of a field of rooms that open and close in dialogue with the landscape.”
