Grid House in Brazil.

This house is ridiculously amazing. "The Grid House" was conceptualized by the architects at Forte, Gimenes & Marcondes Ferraz with a "single-story home" in mind that meshed nature, space and privacy. I didn't know a single-story home could be so large?! The structural grid was developed according to the topography of the land. I do not really even know what to write about this one... it is simply... unbelievable. A planned out unbelievable feat of the mind really. Who can conceptualize something this vast? This in tune with its surroundings? Amazing! Read about it here.

Summer Swim.

First day of summer so I thought I'd throw a couple really great pools up on the ole' blog. The top pool house is owned by the the director of Coach - I love, love, love it. It is in my design scrapbook - placed in years and years ago.

Fun Wallpaper in the Soho Grand

I like the look of this Soho Grand Hotel bathroom - designed by William Sofield in 1996. He used a fun wallpaper from the New Yorker magazine cartoonist Saul Steinberg. Good Clean Fun.

Quick Logo Design

Swinging Porch.

I saw this in last month's Traditional Home and think it is such a great concept for a screened-in porch - a perfect mash of indoors & out!
