Modern Chalet in the Alps

Feb 22 2012

I have yet again fallen for the work of Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance. I posted about his Corvo chair for Bernhardt Design a while back. This time I’m smitten with his Otto seating collection for Ceccotti Collezioni – not to mention this stunning chalet (if you can even call it that!) in the Alps that houses these beautiful pieces.

I mean, seriously, look at this home! Gorgeous wood detail that keeps the space incredibly modern but warm.

Twins by William O’Brien Jr

Oct 19 2011

Dare I say that winter is in the air? I wouldn’t mind so much if my winter looked like the photos below.

Architect William O’Brien Jr. created two incredibly serene and stunning vacation properties for two brothers and their families in upstate New York.

I won’t even attempt to get into the mathematical properties behind this project, but essentially both homes are made up of the same five shapes – one is a six-sided polygon and the other a four-sided polygon.

No fighting over rooms for these two lucky families.

Modern Chalet

May 18 2011

This is my kind of country house. Architects Atelier Kastelic Buffey, have designed a beautifully minimal and modern weekend spot in Collingwood, Ontario (about 2 hours outside of Toronto).

I love that hardly any furniture is needed to make the place look complete.
