Time Out…

…we are heading west to Sonoma County, California.  We arrive at Hupomone Ranch and try our hand at sustainable farming and ranching…and, of course,  much enjoyment and camaraderie…

The site has a wonderful balanced quality to it, and the simple grounded form of the barn is situated to compliment this setting and capture the long views to the coastal range beyond…

The light-filled living area opens up to the long view south and gathers the bedrooms and kitchen to either side.  (Make sure you take note of the fab mirrored chest which promotes just the right sparkle)…

The kitchen has slide away windows that open directly to the garden…

I call dibs on this bedroom, oh alright, you can have it…but really, can this room be any more perfect…

The bathroom is “oh so right” with its star-jeweled light and picture-perfect view…

Life is good!  Kudos to Turnbull Griffin Haesloop Architects

Bathed in White…

…summer at Montauk Lake House is sure to be very enjoyable;  but, wouldn’t it be fun to visit during Fall for the Thanksgiving holiday?  Bathed in white and enclosed with large expanses of glass, it is certain to be bright even on the gloomiest Fall day.  The view of blue will inspire…

Spring 2015…

…watch the construction team in action for Phase 2 of Sasaki‘s Chicago Riverwalk project. Due to the unusual site, construction is being executed from barges on the Chicago River, and involves workers…quite literally…walking on water.  The Chicago Riverwalk is due to open in Spring 2015.

Out of the Landscape…

…rising from the terrain, we find Reykjavik House…minimalist, inviting, and toasty…yes, toasty…

…the light from Reykjavik House calls one inside…

simplicity, the indigo view, and warm wood tones makes one comfortable and toasty…yes, toasty…can you feel the warmth?…

…a beautifully designed and substantial home to shield one from the elements…the genius of Moomoo Architects.

Burnished Indigo…

indigo is my favorite color…when I was younger, I was a ‘blue jean baby’…but I have now become partial to wearing black.  Anyway…JamesPlumb has developed a dye process, producing an antique burnished indigo textile, which gives a stunning depth and dimension to indigo…

The project began when James Russell and Hannah Plumb of JamesPlumb found a 19th century leather sofa in a state of disrepair and wanted to find a suitable fabric to reupholster it.

brilliant…
