Welcome back! We hope you enjoyed the first peek at Project Lake Claire this Tuesday, we’ll be sharing more from that great house soon! Today, we’ve got some beautiful minimalist treasures, a party-worthy bar, and an exterior update that caused quite a stir.
We’re color people, so neutral spaces don’t always win us over, but this one just works. It’s such a great space, full of texture and tons of sunlight, and that (HUGE) living room is just begging to be party central. It’s home to Pilar Guzman (of beautiful-kitchen fame), which just makes perfect sense.
Would you paint your home black? We’re not opposed to the idea, and the original house was not great, but we aren’t sold on all the all-black-everything on this Portland home. It seems to flatten the space and lose some of the details. Other commenters thought the dark color was an odd choice for a typically rainy locale. What do you think?
This middle-of-nowhere cabin is a little minimalist and sparse for our taste on the interior, but you forget the brutalism the moment you take in that moonlight view. Just, wow. Incredible architecture incorporating an incredible environment by Jackson Clements Burrows Architects.
Another mostly minimal space, but this one just sings. Grzywinski+Pons managed to blend powerful geometry and pretty pastels to create a lovely, minimal, and sophisticated space at the Leman Locke Hotel in London.
Architect Elizabeth Roberts did a beautiful complete renovation of this Brooklyn townhouse, complete with a kitchen that has us jumping all over the green-cabinet bandwagon. The bar provides a truly fun moment- hiding behind the cabinet doors is as incredible wallpaper that puts anyone in the mood for a party.
Have a great weekend, everyone! We’ll be back with more from Project Lake Claire in a few days!
