My Pinterest feed was full of great images this morning, and as I started scrolling through them I noticed that many of them featured wonderful windows. Take a look at these and let me know if you see something you like too:
This window makes the perfect secret spot.
These are some of my favorite windows ever.
Double doors that double as windows.

What’s a home in the desert without great windows?
I’ve just got to show you these modern homes in the desert. Each one is special in its own way. Do you love them as much as I do?
First, this Borrego Springs, California house; it feels like the perfect party enclave:
Next, this Palm Springs marvel; it’s a modernist bungalow amongst the desert rocks:
And finally this amazing tiny compound in Tucson made of glass and corten steel:
Do a search using Modernist Architecture and you’ll immediately fall down a rabbit hole from which there may be no return. Not that that’s a bad thing, mind you, if you love the style like I do. I love it, and I feel like I don’t know exactly how to define the hallmarks of it, which is part of what makes that kind of search so interesting to me. Here’s some of what I recently found after said search:
This Modernist home in Morocco was designed by a protege of Philippe Starck. The fact that an entire house is set within that open block structure–which has its own interesting multi-story section–is amazing to me.
Then, there’s this much more modest Modernist prefab–most likely around the size of the house that’s inside the box in the above Moroccan home. You know I love a good prefab and the setting here is transcendent:
Followed by a classic Palm Springs Modernist abode, the Leff Residence. This is really what I tend to think of when I think of Modernist Architecture:
And now a rocky, beachy, rustic moment. Modernist homes do happen a lot in forbidding terrain, don’t they?
Wrapping up with a Modernist beauty in the wooded wilds of Argentina.
Next time I fall down the rabbit hole in a search, let’s hope I end up somewhere as terrific as all of these places!
