Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn

Jun 28 2012

Oh, Brooklyn. You’ve done it again. You’ve got a lot going for you, but now the Wythe Hotel seems to clinch it all.

Williamsburg might not necessarily be the most convenient spot for a weekend visit (at least for my typically rushed trips), but this might be a seriously good draw.

Country Home by NORM Architects

Jun 25 2012

I’ve done many postings by NORM Architects in the past – how exciting to find another! I’ve seen various images from this property all over the web, but it was only while searching through Marie Claire Maison that I saw the full property.

My french is a bit rusty, but it looks like this property was a fishing cabin outside of Copenhagen and was designed by Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen from NORM. Lovely.

House in the Pyrenees

Jun 21 2012

This home in the Pyrenees by Architects Cadaval & Solà-Morales is so simple and so beyond all at the same time. When you get right down to it, the interior houses some reasonably basic needs – but what a space. The home seems to jut right out of the mountain side.

I particularly love the original stone detail with the modern top.

The Isku Kitchen

Jun 18 2012

These minimalist kitchens by Finnish company Isku were designed by Jaani Vaahtera. They remind me a bit of some of Bulthaup’s latest lines, but are even more paired down. Design wise, it’s a nice idea to get rid of the bulk of a traditional island. Functionally, not sure how I’d cope. The kitchen really is that one place where I can’t seem to purge – but would be fun to try.
