NOW: Summer Lovin’, NYC Farming + Timeless Objects

07/09/2011 § Leave a comment

1. Okay so browsing through my bookmarks of favorite blogs I came across thismodernromance and was reminded of how stunning and truly romantic is the work of this husband + wife team of photographers. I insist, you must browse their portfolio of latest work for a dose of this sweetness!

2. Last month Hospitality Design Magazine released their 2011 Design Awards and this laid-back industrial-cool New York spot stole a Best Green/Sustainable Project Award. Bell Book & Candle, designed by Grade Architecture & Interior Design, has an aeroponic roof-top tower garden where they grow 60% of the fresh produce that goes into their dishes. Their menus also constantly change according to what’s growing upstairs. Talk about vertical farming!

3. So last but not least, while shopping for a client on my day job this week I spruced on up into this gorgeous store in Miami’s Design District only to find an amazing collection of the most beautiful and sophisticated furniture and accessories! Even if you have no plans to purchase it’s honestly worth a “window-shop” for any interior-design enthusiast! Michael Dawkins Home.

Have a beautiful weekend!

THE SHOP: Plant the Future

I stumbled upon this boutique flower shop with my coworkers one day after work. The shop located on NW 2nd Avenue and 25th Street has a charming cacti garden adjacent to the entrance where an amazing array of desert plants sit amongst a choreographed sea of  white gravel.

The amazing texture and contrast created by these differing specimens of plants move inside to miniature scale table top arrangements. These exquisite creations are complemented by white porcelain horses with grass manes and their Mother’s Day invention: an arrangement of orchids and live moss with a real butterfly cacoon from which the lovely creatures will hatch in a couple weeks.

WALK THROUGHS: Modern Ocean Penthouse

03/23/2011 § Leave a comment

These are photos from one of the most recent projects from Miami based interior design firm DKOR Interiors.

The design of the ocean-front penthouse borrows from the seashore nearby it’s curvilinear forms, organic textures and abundant light accentuated with the repetition of white. The result? An airy modern beach house in the sky.
