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

Image via Architectural Digest Whether you’re single or spoken for, there’s no denying that Valentine’s Day can be a little sickeningly sweet. By the time the day arrives, we’ve been worn out by our attempts at making dinner reservations, we’ve seen way too many ads for the “perfect gift,” and we never want to taste another candy heart again. But there is one thing about this hallmark holiday that we can get behind — the colors. Although soothing blues and neutral hues are great, nothing makes us swoon like a

It reminds us to always say thank you and excuse me, never to chew with our mouths open, and to hold the door for little old ladies. But every now and then, it’s okay to listen to the devil on your shoulder and break a rule or two. Specifically, when it comes to interior design. Forget what you’ve heard about avoiding

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.

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

Image via Architectural Digest We have a confession — we’re starting to tire of the white-on-white look that’s been dominating our Pinterest feeds. Don’t get us wrong, neutrals are necessary, but when it comes to color, we’re craving the unexpected. Few people think to pair shades of black and yellow or purple and green together when painting walls or choosing decor. But when done right, uncommon color combinations can make a seriously chic statement. From salmon pink and forest green to citrus and cerulean, these unexpected color schemes are bringing spaces together

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

Design Styles: The Ultimate Modern Home

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

Rebecca Minkoff’s apartment via One Kings Lane Fashion designers — they’re just like us, right? If their homes look anything like the couture collections currently tromping down the New York Fashion Week runway, probably not. Still, we can’t help wondering about the decorating habits of the world’s most celebrated designers. From minimal mansions to maxed-out penthouses, these fashion-forward spaces are as creative and cultivated as the designers who live in them. 1. Ralph Lauren A true pioneer of the fashion world, Ralph Lauren is celebrated for both his couture and his
