The year is 1962 and architectural duo Krisel & Palmer are completing the design for a brand new condominium in the desert paradise of Palm Springs. With its butterfly roofline, horizontal orientation, and patterned cinderblock cladding, Canyon View Estates was quintessentially midcentury in design. But, for the time, this was no ordinary condominium. Made to feel more like single-family homes than stacked vacation units, the properties at Canyon View reinvented condo living and helped put Palm Springs on the map as the midcentury modern capital of the world. Fast forward

As she glides around her light-filled Los Angeles living room, it’s abundantly clear that E! News host Catt Sadler has chosen the right profession. “Telling people’s stories has always been my passion. Believe it or not, being in front of the camera is my safe space,” she says. But no matter how comfortable you are in front of the camera, every celeb needs a safe space to come home to. For some A-listers that may mean sweatpants, takeout and a big comfy couch. For Sadler that means a glam look

The very words strike fear into the design conscious among us, conjuring up visions of bulky pleather recliners with cup holders, the scent of stale beer, walls lined in garish sports memorabilia. But there’s a whole other class of man caves out there, ones with James Bond tech swagger, sumptuous seating and serious style. Settle in with some single malt and artisanal jerky, these are our picks for the world’s sickest man caves. Rugged Yet Refined A good man cave needs to start with comfy

When we heard that Queen Bey and Jay were about to add two little ones to their musically royal family, we dropped everything and started designing our dream spaces for the little ones. We had James Tabb tackle creating a look that’s all Beyonce, while Kimberly Winthrop imagined a space that’s all Jay-Z. Check out the designs and tell us where you fall. Are you Team Bey or Team Jay? Their Sister’s Nursery Although they haven’t released images of daughter Blue Ivy’s nursery, we do know that Bey purchased one badass crib for her.

To many, the kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s where we partake in our morning coffee rituals, fuel our bodies with food, have wine nights with friends and cook dinner with our loved ones. So why shouldn’t it be as beautiful as the meals and memories we make in it? We know that overhauling a kitchen is no easy task. It’s a time-consuming and expensive process. But it doesn’t have to be nearly as messy as that time you decided to make pasta from scratch. When it comes

After a brisk jog and a green juice this morning, we meditated, signed up to volunteer more and decided that we were finallllllly going to get around to investing more. Oh and budgeting. And no more impulse shopping. Also, meatless Mondays. Ooh and maybe we’ll clean out the closet. But a few weeks into the new year, our Netflix queue is calling, we’re back to hitting the snooze alarm and who left that pint of Ben & Jerry’s in the fridge?!  Staying motivated

Potties with Pattern A simple white potty

Airbnb and other vacation rental services have completely changed the way we travel, allowing us to live like a local in locales around the world. But what’s often missing in these experiences is a hotel-worthy design. Airbnb owner Lauren Otero knew that her LA bungalow‘s look was far too basic for its funky Silverlake neighborhood. Due to the popularity of the area, she had solid bookings, but was making significantly less than the average nearby hotel’s per-night rates.  Could design be the culprit? She teamed up with designer James Tabb to find out, transforming the one-bedroom

Los Angeles real estate is kind of like a night at a Vegas casino – you either luck out or you end up blowing all your money on a really bad bet. Rebecca and Jared Raskind were all but ready to fold when their agent showed them a Spanish-style home that was definitely a fixer upper. And it’s the best bet they ever made. Rebecca and Jared embraced the home’s flaws as an opportunity. “We were actually happy that it was a fixer-upper because we could personalize the home while maintaining its character and

How would you like to wake up every day feeling refreshed, revitalized, and ready to go to work? Studies show that a well-designed office has a direct positive impact on the health and productivity of employees. To put it plainly, stylish design equals happy workers, and BLND PR has definitely not missed the memo. The boutique public relations firm based out of Hermosa Beach, CA, has mastered the art of working hard and playing hard. Their new office by Laurel & Wolf Luca Pepitone is a clear representation of this motto, filled
