 Japanese Trash masculine design obsession

This goes nicely into my slate & red obsession. From Trendenser.

Anybody but me intrigued-slash-disturbed by the clear indication with the announcement of Nook Color this week that we’re seriously on the path leading directly to the Cylon War? Just look at the bottom left corner of this device and tell me it’s not true.

I really love looking at photos of amazing interiors and have been doing it for some 40 years now, so it’s rare that I see an image of something that feels completely new. This is one such image for me.

There’s so much here that I love the idea of: the stark black/white/grey of the built-ins against the warmth of the beautiful wood floor; the really random mixture of things–from the stack of magazines (with the portrait peeking out above them) in the far corner to the crates atop the upper cabinets to the books, bust and whatever else that is on the right; the French doors (!); and that ceiling. That. Ceiling.

Then, to top it all off, the office set up on the table with the French press standing by. Heaven.

Again, from the awesome interiors porn.

Only this would be better with concrete floors, I think.

Found this on one of my new favorites: interiors porn

It all works together here somehow. Not exactly sure how yet.

Dosh, according to this. I like the orange one.

A Novogratz family kitchen. From the book "Downtown Chic."

They’re the family everyone loves to hate, the folks who are alternately the most sought-after designers or one of the signs of the Apocalypse, they’re the Novogratzes. I winced when I first saw the ads on Bravo for their show, “9 by Design,” but then I watched it and fell in love. Anyone know if they’re getting a second season?

I’m continually drawn back to a palette containing slate and red (see Roman & Williams, below — not to mention the palette of this very site!). This one throws in white, which is not something that appeals to me — it dilutes the richness and drama too much. When we upgrade our kitchen I’d love to do it in the slate/red family.

There’s an amazing eye and great editing in this Miami Mid-Century + Modern place. I don’t know that I’d combine everything exactly the way it is here (love the red chairs but maybe not as dining chairs?). Well done.
