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.

happy monday!

we finally have our new front windows & door installed…! yay and yay! the black frame windows and solid black door look really amazing with the original brick wall and the marble lintel and stoops. to celebrate this milestone of our first home improvement, today’s post is all about interior (steel) black frame window/door.

i am having two subjects in one post today.

remember the virtual monday post? that’s right, the realization of the project looks JUST LIKE the rendering, in good way! the marble countertop/backsplash with brass trim, framed by black cabinets with brass hardwares… minimal yet rich in materiality, michitecture’s #1 design mantra.

and remember the atrium house by tham & videgård arkitekter featured back in 2012?  stockholm-based architecture office TVARK’s book looks perfect in one of the HG7 project, packhuset. you can look inside the book here via idea books.nl (which offers really awesome book preview). buy the book from amazon(US).

happy sunday!
