The wild rural landscape extends up over the roof of this riverside house in Suffolk, England, which was designed by British firm Soup Architects with walls built from handmade bricks (+ movie). (more…)
We’ve all seen them before: those sort of faux-wood furniture pieces that aren’t exactly screaming style but could still function in your space if you need it. Instead of letting this piece stay dark and sad, Cassie gave it the Midas touch for a cabinet that now exudes sophistication.

Eight years ago I stumbled upon a quirky little apartment in the heart of Capitol Hill, located about two and half blocks from the Capitol (not kidding). It’s about 750 square feet with a very sweet balcony.
You know what the weekends are great for (other than brunches, lounging and other restful things)? Shaking up your style. Two whole days (or in this case, three days!) to take a fresh look at your space, see what’s boring and what could use a boost and take a chance on experimenting with a bold design element. We found six ideas that are a little outside-your-comfort zone, but might just be the thing one of your room needs to get a style shake-up!
Everyone loves a long weekend. That extra day gives you plenty of time to enjoy the sunshine, spend time with family — and maybe start a project or two. We’ve rounded up some projects from our video archives that would be lots of fun to create with kids, with friends, or just on your own. And the best thing is, these are all quick projects, so you’ll definitely be able to finish them before Monday night.

Musician Robert Fleming’s Los Angeles home is nestled in the hills of Silver Lake and is a great representation of the danceworthy indie-pop music he plays with his band Sneakout. Fun patterns and and a mixture of sleek modern and vintage elements stand out against moody backdrops of dark grays, forest greens, and navy blues. It’s the home your teenage self envisioned you’d have as an adult, complete with a secret backyard clubhouse.
It’s something we’re always talking about having more of. It’s the sort of thing we seek out when looking to rent or buy a home. It warms our rooms, brightens our spaces and uplifts many of our days. Have you ever watched the natural light as it filtered throughout your home during the day? If you have plans to stay inside your home this weekend to relax, you might consider observing your home’s progression of natural light for a number of reasons.
