Modern

Dining rooms. They’re where we host holiday gatherings, have rambling long convos with our friends and fam, and where we throw impromptu dinner parties. They’re the setting for some of our favorite memories. But they can also be one of the priciest rooms to decorate. Thankfully, with a good plan, you can get a space worthy of your favorite dining companions regardless of your budget. So we called upon Laurel & Wolf designer Amy Jacob to design a modern Scandinavian dining room at three different price points. Read on for

Image via One Kings Lane People often think of modern design as stark and sterile, the look of museum galleries or a villain’s lair. But that cold vibe is a thing of the past. A newer, cozier modernism is on the rise — one that feels warm and inviting, streamlined and clean, all at the same time. But where did cozy modern come from? And how can you bring it into your own home? Read on for our tips. Cozy Modern Roots We’re putting our bets on the Scandinavians when it comes to the rise of

When Dave Arthurs and his husband Brennan first laid eyes on the condos at Canyon View Estates, they envisioned themselves spending long, leisurely afternoons, reclining on a sun-splashed patio, sipping cool drinks and admiring the desert mountains just beyond. It was a paradisiacal image that most only have the chance to dream about. But for Dave and Brennan, it soon became their reality. “What attracted us to Palm Springs was the weather, the scenery, and the mid-century modern vibe,” says Brennan. “Originally, this was just intended to be a vacation house, but we’re

You might find yourself thinking, don’t the terms modern and contemporary basically mean the same thing? Aren’t they both current and minimal, void of color and filled with clean lines? While some of that may be true, the differences between the styles can also be as vast as night and day. So to help you out, we’ve put together this handy guide to distinguishing

He has impeccable style, a winning, pearly white grin and a serious Instagram following. There’s no denying that Geordi La Corgi — athlete, model, food enthusiast, and full-time cutie — is quite a catch. In honor of National Pet Day, our resident dog whisperer (and interior designer), James Tabb, created the perfect pad for this lovable fur ball. And boy, we knew Geordi had style, but this modern mixture of decor is made for the princely pup. We caught up with Geordi to get his take on his new dog

When house-hunting in Los Angeles, it’s not every day that you stumble upon an off-the-market stunner near the beach. But that’s exactly what happened to digital media executive Sarah Penna and her YouTube-famous husband. (Remember MysteryGuitarMan? Yeah, that’s him.) The pair spends their days changing the face of new media and their evenings caring for a rambunctious toddler. So when it came to decorating their new space, they needed more than a little assistance. Enter Laurel & Wolf designer Yekii Killion. Style Board   She helped them transform their new home into

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.

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.

Calling all minimalists: Get ready to meet your interior design match. We tapped designer Ashley Bussell to put together a style board for our dream modern home. Afraid your modern home could end up looking too sterile? Bussell proves that minimalism can be maximally inviting. “I wanted to create a space that was rooted in the minimal, streamlined ideals of modernism, but also include pieces that are both bold and exciting.” If you’re looking for a balance between the stark simplicity of modernism, mixed with the eclectic aesthetic that’s all over Instagram, then these rooms will
