Washington Park Residence in Seatlle

Superb design by Sullivan Conard Architects. I can learn a lot! Well thought out interiors composed with clean, elegant forms. Great use of materials - surfaces come alive with smooth or raw textures. And I can not stop to admire those detailed renderings!

Styling inspiration: blue interiors

Vibrant ultramarine or warm cobalt? Tasty blueberry? Clear aquamarine maybe? Topaz? Sapphire? Steel or teal? Persian or parisian? ...or indian indigo? Noble royal blue shade? Simple denim? Phthalo? Cyjan? Aquamarine... decide!

I'm having fun with 'blue-analysis' on my tumblr here: design traveller. Have you discovered this blogging platform yet? If you are tumbling as well, let me know :)

Philippines: C House by Archipelago architects

Batangas, Philippines. This beautifully located house seems to breath in the fresh sea air. Spacious, open interiors were nicely softened by delicate beiges and natural textures. Simple idea (but not so easy to come up with) that works so well here! Don't you like the warm effect?

Modernism in Africa

Can you believe that this house was designed in 2003? Both cosy and elegant family home in Accra was created by Ghanaian architect Joe Osae-Addo. Inspiration? The contextual modernism of Finland’s Alvar Aalto, Australia’s Glenn Murcutt and L.A.’s Ray Kappe. The 2,500-square-foot house was build from local materials: timber and adobe mud blocks.

“It is not about edifice but rather harnessing the elements - trees, wind, sun, and water - to create harmony, not the perfection that modernism craves so much.”
