modern party house

Another swoon worthy house tour. This time in Texas. Interior designer Chandos Dodson converted a tri-level house in Dallas to a hip, modern party house. The owner wanted the space to accommodate upto 30 people for cocktails or a business meeting. The property had so much going for it and Dodson did such a fantastic job of creating a sophisticated, bright and open entertaining haven. How chic is the floor lamp in the first pic!

indoor outdoor living; marika sakellariou’s eichler home

Here’s a look at Marika Sakellariou’s Eichler home in California. Marika bought this home in 2006 and enlisted architects Marek Slosar and Lucian Rosciszewski. She wanted to modernize the 1960s era Eichler home and maximize the indoor/outdoor feel of the structure.

Eichler homes are from a branch of Modernist architecture that has come to be known as “California Modern,” and typically feature glass walls, post-and-beam construction and open floorplans in a style indebted to Mies van der Rohe and Frank Lloyd Wright. – wikipedia

I love the open feel to the entire home. Who needs a vacation when you have a retreat like this for a home?
