This masculine home design is a terrific getaway on Long Island, beautifully renovated by the new owners some 40 years after it was originally built. Adding only a few square feet in the renovation, each space in this home has been lovingly renewed and brought into the present, while keeping the texture and character of the original structure.

There was a kind-of sneak peek of this post included in this week’s Leftovers. Morgan Satterfield of The Brick House posted her photos from the Dwell Home Tours San Diego 2012 and everybody wins–’cause they’re really good. Read her entry HERE; she’s not only a great photographer and interiors magician, she’s a funny funny lady too. (Okay, I only read the first half of the post before I wrote this; now I’ve read the rest, and there’s some not-so-funny stuff in there as well. But that’s life, right? Don’t let it scare you off from how overall awesome she is.)
Anyway, I’m so into these images from Morgan. Truth is, my tiny back yard needs major love and this is just the kind of inspiration the doctor ordered. Go modern landscaping! Again, it seems to come back to my original mantra of masculine design: color, texture, and great materials/choices. Have a happy weekend, all…

This London apartment is just terrific. It’s hard to find something to write–these photos say almost everything that needs to be said: amazing materials, great palette, super textures–a great way to end the week, don’t you think?
The lines and materials of this industrial modern dining space are so attractive. The way the bridgework steel of the dining table echoes the i-beam running across the ceiling is almost breathtaking to me. Gorgeous leather dining chairs. Terrific pendant lamp. It all works together perfectly.
When someone refers to a space having “good bones,” this is the kind of masculine apartment design that immediately comes to mind. There’s such a terrific flow here–from the dining area (with that amazing Orbit chandelier) through to the living room, and beyond. Throw in those sweet wood floors, paint the whole place white, give it smart, timeless pieces, and you have yourself a real winner.
There’re a lot of great house interior design ideas going on in this simple shot, from the sleek, modern chairs, the simple, round tables and the (faux?) hide rugs to the sweet peek at what looks like a terrific outdoor space (does that look like an al fresco bathtub to anyone else?). Plus: great materials–what’s not to love about a concrete floor with character-adding cracks?–and those windows all around the perimeter of the house. The textured cement eaves overhanging the windows and encircling the courtyard create wonderfully subtle visual interest as well. Read Full Article →
