Hey there! This week’s Five on Friday has no particular rhyme or reason, just 5 things that stood out to us over the past 7 days. We sure hope you enjoy them as well!
We’ve been obsessed with 3D printing since we had the chance to use the machines at our school, so it’s no surprise that we are THRILLED to read about this home, built completely on-site, in just 24 hours. Apis Cor’s test facility in Russia developed an incredibly mobile printing crane that allows for a great deal of flexibility in printing individual homes quickly. Previously, structure-printing generally entailed printing of components that would then have to be assembled.
As big fans of the Big Little Lies book, we anxiously awaited the HBO miniseries version, and it does not disappoint. While the show features incredible performances from the likes of Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman, you’ll be equally enthralled by their characters’ stunning homes. We enjoyed this interview with Set Decorator Amy Wells about creating the vibe for each character, as well as her advice on creating the “upscale California-cool look”. Her secret weapon? Home Goods!
Elsie just shared her finished kitchen, and it’s such a gorgeous space! So light, bright, and beautiful- and the touches of greenery are just perfect. We’re especially enamored with her colored appliances, and a little blown away by how she got them: custom printed vinyl! This was such a win: way cheaper than buying colored appliances, completely custom shade matching, no worries about paint not withstanding the heat/wear and tear, and completely removable! All the heart eyes for that mint fridge and stove!
We’re completely smitten with this loft by Mark Lewis Interior Design. The blue moldings are such a stunning counterpoint to the rough wood, and it’s all set off by the sharp contrast of crisp white tile. We love how they transformed this industrial space with thoughtful planning and beautiful touches. Plus, we’re a little bit obsessed with their gorgeous website and project pages 🙂
I think we can all agree that Kristen Bell is a national treasure. So, we we thrilled to see that she teamed up with Houzz to surprise her older sister with a basement transformation. They took an underused basement space and completely transformed it, adding in a bedroom, bathroom, living area, and homework/game room for this family of six. Thoughtful design is a life-changer.
Have a great week everyone!
