A stunning rendering of a smashing concept. Would love to see this space become a reality.

The bedroom space from my post on Thomas O’Brien has been a favorite of mine for many years; it shows the power of a well-edited collection and an artistic aesthetic. It also spotlights his famous use of the star chart, which he has written about on the Aero website. That piece has been a touchstone of sorts for him through the years and is the kind of item that brings a feeling of personality and life to a room. I thought I’d showcase a few of his images featuring the chart and perhaps inspire you to identify and display your own personal totem in your home.

I’ve always looked up to certain interior designers as being among those whose work drew me to this world, and Thomas O’Brien is one of them. So when this set of images came across my desk — thanks to creative director Michael Reynolds — I had to post them. Shot some time ago in O’Brien’s New York apartment, this is the equivalent of a master class in his signature style: a layered, relaxed, collector’s aesthetic mixed with clean, classic American pieces. There’s not a space here that doesn’t feel just right to me.

Looking as American and classic as Clark Kent, Thomas O’Brien’s impact as a designer has extended from providing interiors to creating his own furniture, lighting, rugs and house wares lines, as well as authoring a pair of books on the subject. Let’s take a look at those shots of his apartment and drink up his unique and timeless style:

Even though it’s over-styled for my taste, I can’t help but fall for this dining nook. It has a laid-back feel and a few industrial touches that make it an appealing spot for a bite to eat.

It’s part of our daily routines–at least, for most of us: coming in the front door and needing a place to put our stuff. Keys, coats, bags, phones… all of the things you might not need again until the next time you go out. That’s where a smartly put together entry comes in handy; it’s just the right spot to deposit those items until you take off once more. The Iron Horse Hotel makes it easy for their guests–many of whom are motorcycle enthusiasts–by putting an entry like the one above in many of their loft-style rooms. A place to sit and take off and store outerwear that uses tile so it’s easily cleaned; the perfect solution.

Here’s a similar solution created from an existing entryway closet in a Brooklyn home. Simple but effective storage in an easy to clean space–with the addition of plenty of hooks for hanging extra jackets, dog leashes, and shopping bags. The adjacent cabinet could act as extra storage and make a great spot for keys, phone and wallet.

Let’s say your space is at a premium because you live on an island in central Stockholm, there’s still apt to be room enough for a wall hook and a small table or two, right? Just enough for some of your stuff.

And, if you’ve maxed out your available footprint for an entry but still need a bit more help managing things, there’s always the option of adding this modern, hand made rack with its built-in shelf. Now there’s no more excuse for not being able to find your keys; they’re waiting for you at the entry.

It’s the height of summer in the Northern Hemisphere, and here in Austin the temperatures are reaching triple digits. I’ve always been a believer in letting our surroundings help set the mood in our lives, so, if you’re like me and would like to feel a cooling ocean breeze these days, you might want to think about adding a surfboard to your abode and let the waves crash over you–figuratively, at least. It can be as simple as propping a board in the corner, like in the Madrid home above. Throw in a moody moonscape and the classic Bertoia Diamond Lounge Chair, and you’ve got yourself one stylish set up.

Take the island feeling into your workspace by including a graphic board there. You can picture yourself on Australia’s surf coast where this home is located.

Why not add a surfboard to the bedroom? Get in the laid-back beach mode from the moment you open your eyes. By the way, isn’t this Brazilian surfer’s home amazing?

Boards come in all kinds of sizes and designs, so you can choose one that’s just right for your taste and interior design style. This one even comes with a bit of history.

Think your style is a bit too sophisticated to throw a surfboard against the wall? How about this one from Peter Walker, master artist and surfboard designer/builder. Yes, it’s a real board that can be used in the water, just like all the others shown here. But there’s no denying it’s also a work of art.

So, how about it? Are you ready to add some surfer cool to your space?

Such a captivating kitchen space–it’s so different from what I tend to see every day. The offset square tile everywhere, the plywood door, the matte black refrigerator, and, of course, those antlers–it all adds up to something I really like.
