modern mix MCM lamp industrial dining  Japanese Trash masculine design obsession

I’ve recently become a big fan of this lamp (in black), and, since my other half is also into it, I should try to figure out where I can source one. Please leave a comment on this post if you can help. Thanks!

I only learned about interior designer Robert Stilin today–I saw a post about him on James Snowden’s blog, The New Victorian Ruralist–but knew immediately I’d found a soulmate and wanted to do this post showing off some of his work. These rooms are so well put together, but still warm; they’re approachable and personable. They’re the kinds of rooms I’d love to spend time in with friends, yet each one is well planned and contains gorgeous materials, textures, furnishings, and art. I’m in awe and inspired!

Concrete, steel, glass… This place is an industrial-modern work of art and 100% livable at the same time.

Gotta say the modern pieces and clean lines in this industrial Paris loft are calling my name.

This is not my usual style, but there’s really a lot about this I like: the industrial vibe from the ceiling and wall, the shutters, the floor…

 Japanese Trash masculine design starting point

A note from Dave: If, like me, you’ve ever wondered how to make the leap from what you’ve got now to what will work better in the way of items to use while decking out your place, this sporadic series of posts is for you. With the Starting Point posts, I’ll give my thoughts on where to focus when working to get from where you are now to where you want to go. Today: goodbye blank walls.

I spent some of my downtime yesterday doing the traditional Thanksgiving stuff: turkey and all the trimmings, football (my Longhorns beat the aggies–Hook ‘em!), you know the drill. But I also gave my office a long overdue update–daily readers will know that I’ve been thinking/planning a change for some time now. Once I feel like it’s complete and ready to share I’ll shoot some photos and get your thoughts, but for now the room is missing one important feature: something to put on the wall over my desk. If you’ve got a big blank space staring at you, think large scale art; it’s actually easier than you might think to find–or make–just what you’re looking for, and it will create a huge difference in your rooms. From framed gun range targets to DIY pieces like the one above, you’ll find more examples (not all large scale) on my art-tagged posts here.
