Modern Monday

Bathroom in Black and White | You know that Kelly and I love our black and white in any form. We saw this little main bathroom remodel and thought it would be cool for updating some of those ranchers our there. We might change out the shower to frameless glass, but other than that it is good to go. Enjoy this article from our friends at Design Milk here. Cheers! Kelly and Troy

Little Ranch on a Hill

Yesterday, we toured our client’s updated and expanded little rancher just above Charlotte street and walkable to town.

Atlanta Design Festival

Kelly and I had a great time visiting Atlanta over the weekend for their Annual Design Festival. We toured a dozen new modern homes and attended their Friday night expo.

Happy Birthday | Frank Lloyd Wright

In honor of one of our most celebrated architects I thought it would worthwhile to re-share this fascinating interview of the man himself. He would have been 150 years today. Happy Birthday!

1953 Frank Lloyd Wright interview by Mike Wallace | I scoured the internet for something of interest to watch last night. It is not always very fruitful, but this time I found something “fantastic” — at least from my viewpoint. If you’ve never seen this before I’m happy to share this treasure with you today. His belief in individualism and his views on the lack of intellectualism and “mobocracy” hit home today. I won’t say more, but simply encourage you to spend 50 minutes to watch this interview with a true visionary who is, obviously, very comfortable in his own skin. Enjoy the segment here . Cheers!
