Today I am sharing with all of you a bunch of modern stuff I found in the last few weeks since I have been sick and really unable to tend to many of the business functions I previously and again now handle. So this is like my first blog posting in some time..
Enjoy the pics and post...
Banging & Bold Modern Kitchen Inspiration
Urbanspace Interiors is a hip and stylish modern furniture store in Austin, Texas, and they just so happened to build out a perfectly inspiring kitchen in their showroom. Using sleek lines, stunning material and bold, modern accents, they’ve created a kitchen that anyone would want to have in their home.
The kicker of course, is a combo of the thin-profiled white Silestone countertops mixed with that stunner of a vinyl wallpaper back splash from Flavor Paper. Partnered with white accent chairs (we spot Kartell’s Masters Chair in white right there), they’ve really created a powerful but surprisingly simple modern kitchen. If you want to know more about the products and materials used as well as some Sketch-up renderings, check out the blog at Urbanspace Interiors.
Paul Bernier’s Bernier-Thibault Residence
We love a thick, urban environment. Full of concrete and loud noises and fun materials and people. But we also adore the calm, relaxing atmosphere when in nature. The Bernier-Thibault Residence in Montreal, Canada by Paul Bernier Architecte sure seems to meld two seemingly impossible to mix environments into one kick butt architectural structure.
“Two boxes made of glass and wood, simple volumes of similar dimensions, were added to the original house. One box was placed on the roof and the other one in the garden under the big maple.”
“A vertical slice of the original garden side wall was taken out and replaced by a wood structure wall that allows for openings on the garden and that acts as a formal link between the two boxes. The original house is veneered with brick and all new interventions are made of wood.”
A beautiful space and an inspiring home. More information on Architizer.
Pre-Fabulous: Swatt/Miers’ Krubiner Residence
Always astounded by how good-looking pre-fab architecture can be, and the Krubiner Residence by Swatt/Miers Architects is a great example. Made in partnership with Simpatico Homes (the manufacturers), this great home lives in Emeryville California. And hey! Look how accessibly modern it is! Get the look: We spot a Blu Dot Bonnie Sofa, and Blu Dot’s Pi Tables look similar to the coffee table, too.
Love how open the kitchen is, and how dynamic that tile backsplash is, tying the whole space together and mimicking the graphic pop of the concrete brick wall next door.
What an entry way! And you wouldn’t be able to tell at all that this was a prefab home unless someone told you, don’t you think? More on the Swatt/Miers website.
