this must be the most IT blue this summer season. now with the discovery of the blue pigment that could help to cool off the building – the vibrant blue will not only be spotted from runway but even to the building rooftops!

a bright blue pigment discovered in 2009 by OSU chemists which has high solar reflectance indicates that this ‘cool pigment’ could be used in a variety of exterior applications by reducing surface temperatures, cooling costs, and energy consumption. as a result of this testing, Shepherd Color Co. has licensed the patent for commercialization efforts.

learn more about this vibrant blue – “YinMn blue” – here.

the old-meets-new type of house renovation/extension work in UK has been one of my favorite go-to when i am looking for the urban dwell renovation inspiration. i recently came across london-based paper house project‘s work and the holton street project is a perfect sample of their work : minimal yet rich in personality,  which is also michitecture’s design mantra.

” We don’t think sustainability should be a special design feature, but rather a fundamental idea that informs every decision we make from start to finish.”

i haven’t really seen any project recently that would trigger the “i can move in here” button. and here we go – this AMAZING property in uppsala, sweden ( uppsala is the fourth largest city of sweden, after stockholm, gothenburg and malmö ) is beyond the dream: very crisp interior style with shades of nude and rusty coral color scheme. the layout of the house is simple and efficient. the vintage modern style is still the winning secret ingredient for a chic, modern home.

a lovely gray & white interior that makes you wonder into the summer dream. i’ve been thinking about the railing with mesh panel for our (next) house, something simple like the one in this image.

although the property itself has a rather rural setting, the overall interior has a pretty relatable style for the urban dwelling… many ideas to steal.
