RENOVATE

Epoxy Floors

The Apartment did this remodel using self-leveling Epoxy for a super sheeny, modern look. It’s an economical way to create a fresh-slate for tired floors.

Flat Iron Remodel

Just found this great remodel over at the apartment. They took a 900 sq. ft. Manhattan loft in the New York Flat Iron building and really utilized space and storage without making the place look small. I especially love the new bedroom which is separated from the rest of the apartment with curtains and a slight elevated area. Also inspiring is the white wall of closets which look like some amazing Italian built-in solution but could easily be accomplished with an Ikea budget.

One Wall Mount Lavatory Set

There’s something about wall mount faucets that just seem to make the vanity area much tidier. This one from Ann Sachs is perfectly simple and well designed.

Serenity Wallpaper

Used sparingly, this would look awesome on an accent wall or hallway.

No VOC paint

Indoor air quality is become increasingly important to consumers as we become aware of the dangers of air pollution. One great way to reduce air pollution indoors is by using paints with no VOC (volatile organic compounds). You can get them in a number of color ways, and

I like Freshaire Choice because the not only does the paint itself have no VOC’s but the pigments also have no VOC’s.

Pervious Pavement

Densely urban environments have the runoff problems due to non-porous pavement–but there is a solution with something called pervious pavement, which actually allows the water to pass through at a very fast rate. If you are laying a new driveway or sidewalks on your property, this could be a good solution.

Custom Gradient Mosaic Tile

I’m loving this custom gradient tile from Hakatai as seen in the Drury Plaza Hotel. Hakatai has a gradient tool on their website so you can create your own Gradient tile. Pretty stunning.

Inspiration: Wallpaper in an office

I love how the wallpaper is used on one wall in this office. It really creates one unified visual area which really ties the workspace together.

Door Levers

There was a time in the 90′s when everything “modern” was stainless. Now it can be a design cliché if you’re not careful, but a stainless door pull is a good bet in a modern home without looking over the top.

The designers at The Apt did a really interesting remodel of a church in London for a family of four.

Modern Cabana

If you’ve got the space, probably the most economical way to expand your property (unless you’re a contractor and really know how to whip out an add-on) is with an outdoor freestanding structure. These structures from Modern Cabana are pretty economical and designed with the modern eye in mind.

Balustrades

If you’re looking to do a remodel or new construction in which you plan on having some large opening windows, local building codes as well as common sense will likely dictate that you have a balustrade so your child/pet/parent doesn’t fall out.

These are architectural, nice to look at, and available for purchase.
