Bad Closet Doors to Bad Ass Closet Doors…

Closet Doors

This is such a great idea!  For those that have accordion doors…and can’t update to a barn door or just have no desire. This is such a FABULOUS idea!

Cover the doors in fabric and edge with a nail head trim. Genius!

Fabulous…

PJ 2

This is a brand new Phillip Jeffries wallpaper…made with a very thin layer of wood and framed with silver foil! Asolutely stunning in person.  This is a perfect alternative to those who would like an intresting ceiling treatment but do not have the budget for major millwork.

By placing this wallpaper on the ceiling or the walls it instantly elivates the room’s level of sophistacation and presense!

When creating tone on tone design…it must also include use of major texture interest! Example A…this fabulous hallway made even more fabulous with all of this trim molding!

Also LOVING how fresh the lighter floors feels especially within this beautifully created neutral tone on tone designed home.

Once again texture takes precedent here in the tile presentation.

Is that a DOME?

geohome6

Yes…these crazy looking home structures were slated to be the homes of “Tomorrowland”.

Many feel they still will be…while others say…they’re already here!

geodome1

These kind of weird looking homes don’t exactly fit into those perfect little neighborhoods you see when walking around a cute downtown area or a clean-cut suburban gated community. But Buckminster Fuller saw the potential is those triangles: With the goal of creating a structure analogous to nature’s own designs, Fuller began to experiment with geometry in the late 1940s. In 1951, he patented the geodesic dome, and while you may not see a lot of on a normal city street, geodesic domes are known to be the most efficient building system available. So, why should you want a dome home anyway?

 

 

This post is dedicated to Tom and Mary Hoyer…who I know personally are absolutely crazy about DOMES and were the first to introduce me to these very unique structures!
