The gorgeous masculine glamour of this foyer by Osborn Architects blows my mind!
It’s totally inspiring room… the late night edition! Better late than never, I say, especially when the room is this cool. Ok, so technically it’s an entry and it’s also just a glimpse. Still, isn’t this glimpse tantalizing enough to draw you into the rest of the house? Check out the cool blog Rex Kelly Mid-Century to see more of the house which was done by Osborne Architects! Happy night owling, y’all!
This is the living room of English architect Richard Found and his wife, Jane Suitor. This room reminds me so strongly of my taste when I first started becoming interested in interiors and architecture (strict minimalism, neutral colors) but also features some elements that embody my style today (elegant chairs, classical figures, brass details, and luxurious carpets).
I like the modernist elegance of this room very much… and the André Arbus armchairs and the vintage cocktail table? Amazing!
I have modernist tendencies. I know that might be hard to tell from pictures of Miles Redd rooms and the Marmouset Jungle cabinet but… I do. In fact, my interest in interiors stemmed from stumbling across a picture of a John Pawson designed house. My taste has evolved quite a bit from his strict minimalism but I still have those tendencies: clean lines, streamlined ornamentation (if there is any), and embracing the function in forms. Now that I’m in Charlotte I’m starting to look for signs of other modernists. The signs are subtle… but definitely here.
Local design/build firm Dialect Design offers stock plans, architectural and general contracting services, and also holds a salon featuring local talent on a regular basis. I discovered them when design principle Toby White commented on a status about modernist architecture on Facebook started by niche realtor, Gail Jodon, of ModernCharlotte. Check out Dialect’s stock plans when you give their site a whirl; I’m especially taken with Pod 1, an expandable plan that is designed to be built locally for $105/sqft!
