Yellow gets sophisticated.

I love how this bright yellow room is balanced by the gray and white accents. The contrast in these colors makes this room suprisingly sophisticated and cheery.

Cool fan

Designed  in the 1980s this fan is has a classic design, it's beautiful form and functionality makes this my new favorite.
"The straight blades are made of a fine steel frame into which transparent foil is inserted, such that though they appear unusually weightless they are in fact highly efficient. Depending on the season the fan can be used to produce either hot or cold air: In summer the rapidly circulating air has a cooling effect, whereas in winter the gentle motion helps circulate the warm air. An external variable transformer can be used to select one of three speeds." Serien Lighting, Ventilator Fan.

Turn the lights on- on this table...

I recently needed to find floor lamp with a built-in shelf for a small space next to a sofa. Let me tell you finding one that was modern was tricky! I love this option, the modern lines add a fresh look to a traditional concept.

Make a Statement with Black Trim

So I've just started working on a new design for a client who's house is very colonial, the problem is the client likes industrial design. So, in order to create a cohesive design I thought a good way to make the house seem a little less "vanilla" would be to paint the trim black throughout. This image is a great example of how painting trim black can make such a statement.

One tip I have learned about painting trim black is to paint it in 2-3 coats of matte black paint and then apply a clear coat of polyurethane in your desired sheen over top. This will give the trim more depth & provides a much richer look.

Wood faucet

So although I think this faucet is very unique & interesting, the whole concept of a wood faucet creeps me out a little bit. To me the thought of mixing wood and water together invokes images decay & bacteria. I could be totally wrong but I just can't get past it...

This barstool is so beautiful! Starck has created such movement in this functional "sculpture". I can imagine this barstool taking center stage in front of a delicate glass top bar...
