FOR THIS RENOVATION, THEY DITCHED THE SHARK TANK

FOR THIS RENOVATION, THEY DITCHED THE SHARK TANK

alexandra loew   venice beach

When Alexandra Loew was hired to overhaul the interior of a gargantuan contemporary house in Marina del Rey,

California, she had her work cut out for her.

Designed in 2006 by the late architect Michelle Ertzan, the home had an elegant Le Corbusier–style

facade in white plaster with steel casement windows.

But inside, it was outfitted with a 10,000-gallon shark tank and a glittery basement discotheque, among other extravagances.

The result, as described by the real estate website Curbed, was “an assaulting jumble of bad finishes and weird layout.”

Turning this screwy temple of madness into an elegant abode

for her clients—a family of six—was going to be a heavy lift,

but Loew was prepared.

The Los Angeles–based designer trained as an architect at SCI-Arc and UCLA and cut her teeth working for Pritzker Prize winner Thom Mayne’s firm Morphosis.

It was a mix of that pedigree and her study of Corbu’s

early houses built in and around Paris,

including Ozenfant House and the Villa Savoye, that helped inform her approach on this project.

What was required of her and her collaborator Hope Alexander was nothing short of a full gutting of the interior—shark tank and all.

From her home in Los Angeles,

Loew told ELLE Decor about her vision for this modernist home.

TOUR THIS GLAMOROUS, ART-FILLED L.A. MANSION

TOUR THIS GLAMOROUS, ART-FILLED L.A. MANSION

Patio

Despite the extensive renovation,

much of the architecture that the couple

initially fell in love with remains. Visitors enter past white columns adorned with baroque reliefs,

leading into a double-height atrium that glows in the neon lettering of artist Kenneth Anger’s Hollywood Babylon.

The illuminated sculpture hangs below the original lace-like millwork with an archway on each side,

offering a peek into the sun-drenched interiors beyond.

“It’s not easy to make a beautiful old house comfortable for contemporary living,” Fong says,

commending the couple for preserving

the essence of the mansion history while bringing the interiors up to date. Sonya,

on the other hand, describes a much more intuitive process: “I just wanted to hang on to everything

original that was good.”

It is one of the more colorful elements in a house that hews to white walls and soft gray mansion

wool rugs—neutrals that accommodate,

rather than compete with, newly acquired works of art. “Rugs to me are like your favorite jeans,”

Fong explains. “It doesn’t matter what you put on top of them if you get the right one.”

Sonya says she never worries about

how an artwork might clash with the decor. She does, however, have to answer to her children’s budding connoisseurship.

“They certainly have opinions,” s

he says with a laugh. “They see things through different eyes. I’ve noticed that as I get older—I’m in my 40s now—my kids help to keep my eye a little fresh.” รับออกแบบบ้าน

EVERYTHING IS ON DISPLAY IN THIS GLASS HOUSE

EVERYTHING IS ON DISPLAY IN THIS GLASS HOUSE IN THE HAMPTONS

daun curry house great room

If you are the type of person who chooses to live in a glass house ,

you are doubling down on a lifetime of good interior

 (not to mention tidy quarters).

After all, when the shades are up,

your entire living schema—down to the errant

throw pillows and piles of unread newspapers—is on display.

daun curry house exterior

Fortunately, when Howard L.

Michaels, the founder and chairman of the Carlton Group,

a real estate private-equity firm, and Jennifer Bayer Michaels, the founder of JB Consulting Strategies and a former senior adviser to Governor Andrew Cuomo,

decided to tear down a preexisting structure on a plot of land in Sag Harbor, New York,

and erect a contemporary glass house in its place, they already had the design part of their commitment covered.

The couple, who have two young daughters,

had previously worked with the New York–based designer Daun Curry on their prewar

Fifth Avenue residence more than a decade ago. For this newly built vacation home,

they sought a more modern look that could accommodate friends and family with ease.

The main house has seven bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a gym, a hammam, tennis courts, and two pools;

there is also a three-bedroom, three-bathroom guesthouse with its own pool.

“The home is a family gathering space that needed to be practical,

easy to live in, and beautiful at the same time,”

explains Jennifer, who is currently heading up fundraising for a

New York super PAC for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden (her husband passed away in the fall of 2018).

“The interiors needed to have strong

sculptural elements, but they also needed to be highly functional.” สถาปนิก

PAINT FINISHES Sheen options vary by manufacturer

PAINT FINISHES Sheen options vary by manufacturer

choosing the right paint color

Sheen options vary by manufacturer , but share some common characteristics. As durability improves across all sheen levels with newer paints, many people are finding creative ways to mix and match them. “We’ve noticed that customers are becoming more experimental in their use of paint finish, to create real impact and texture within a scheme,” says Farrow & Ball Director Sarah Cole. “Try painting a stripe of full gloss on a matte wall in the same color to create a striking, textured look,” she suggests.

Matte paint:
-is the least reflective sheen available
-has a velvety texture
-helps hides imperfections in walls and ceilings
-offers great depth of color
-is generally considered the standard sheen for walls
-can sometimes be difficult to clean

Eggshell and satin paint (satin is slightly glossier than eggshell):
-have some reflectivity
-offer improved durability
-are frequently used in demanding environments, like kitchens and -bathrooms, where easy cleanup without a highly glossy finish is desired

Semi-gloss and gloss paint:
-great for kitchens, doors, window trim, accent walls, and bathrooms
-are the most reflective sheens
-are highly durable and stand up to multiple cleanings
-are traditionally used on baseboards, moldings, and doors
-can make a statement, but also highlight imperfections

Sue Kim, color trend and forecast specialist at Valspar, recommends trying an accent wall with a gloss sheen, while painting the rest of a room matte. But at the end of the day, “It’s all about how you want to set the atmosphere of your home,” she says. “A matte sheen gives you a calm and serene feeling, because of that textural element.” On the other end of the spectrum, gloss adds energy and excitement. Remember that darker and richer colors have a naturally higher sheen (due to increased colorant), so you may want to consider a lower sheen when using a darker
paint color.

Paint Tips

Finally, it is important to remember that the paint you choose is only as good as the quality of the tools you paint with. Although you may think rollers or brushes are a good place to save money, using high-quality tools will help you achieve the best look. You may also want to consider spray painting your walls, which can be a great alternative to traditional rolling. สถาปนิก

The Bedroom Tub: It’s Controversial, But That’s Why I Love It

The Bedroom Tub: It’s Controversial, But That’s Why I Love It

อ่างอาบน้ำอยู่ในห้องนอน - บ้านไอเดีย เว็บไซต์เพื่อบ้านคุณ

f all the ultra-indulgent design trends,
my favorite might have to be bedroom bathtubs. Some may call it impractical,
but I call it convenient (who doesn’t want to go straight from tub to robe to bed again?
The ol’ sleep-n-soak razzle dazzle).
Some say it’s just plain weird, I say it’s ahead of the times.
Some might think a bed-adjacent tub looks like a fish out of water, but I think, hey,
at least the fish has somewhere to swim now.
Well, now that I’ve exhausted that sentence structure,
we can get back to what I came here for:
Writing a love letter to all the bathtubs brave enough to break into new territories.

I first encountered this design trend while

touring the NoMad Hotel, and, in this context,

I think it makes total sense.

Hotels are made for relaxing and romantic

getaways and they also tend to present some

spatial issues (i.e. there isn’t usually unlimited room,

so creative layouts are essential).

Within that same vein,

a statement floating bedroom tub would be

well-suited to a vacation home—or just a home

where a soaking tub isn’t an option in the actual bathroom,

but there is enough space to build one in the

bedroom in lieu of an extra sitting area or workspace.

But, as with any convincing argument,

I’d be remiss not to address the counterpoints.

The biggest everyday caveats are privacy and puddles,

both of which I’d argue are manageable

as far as design caveats go.

The key is to make sure you’re

bedroom is actually optimized for bathing.

And, of course, there’s more to it than just

aesthetics and everyday qualms.

So I asked Los Angeles-based designer Jenn Feldman

to tell me what actually goes into prepping a

bedroom for a soaking tub.  ออกแบบบ้าน

5 Stunning Apartments That Show Off The Beauty Of Nordic Interior Design

5 Stunning Apartments That Show Off The Beauty Of Nordic Interior Design

Scandinavian influence has flourished in every element of design ranging from visual art and typography to architecture,

of course, furniture and home decor. This post features 10 apartments that demonstrate the range

and versatility of Scandinavian interiors – some offer the classic white and wood familiar from the Ikea magazines

, while others tackle the broader definition of Nordic decor with bright colorful motifs.

One of the best things about Scandinavian

design is that almost anyone can integrate some of these classic looks within their own homes.

We’re sure you’ll find inspiration to suit your own signature style.

Our first interior starts with a concept for a renovation

later completed by architects Anna & Eugeni Bach,

visualized here by Render Taxi. It plays up the importance of light in Scandinavian design,

but adds at least one striking modernistic twist:

an amazing ceiling that weaves a narrative between the bright light and corresponding shadow.

The original tiles were recovered from

the original restoration and later reconfigured in a series of distinctive stripes to outstanding effect.

Decorated with wood and white surfaces,

the kitchen essentially personifies the most basic Scandinavian design ideals.

This home is a great example to show that

Nordic influence doesn’t require that everything come from Scandinavia.

The mirror is from French designer Jacques

Adnet, and the rightmost stools are by Fabio Bortolani.

This next space is a little more colorful,

and integrates plenty of natural themes.

Bright color is always appreciated during long those Scandinavian winters so it makes sense

to include as much life and vibrancy as possible.  รับออกแบบบ้าน

Parasite review: A chilling thrill ride about inequality - Vox

It’s so clichéd at this point in the critical conversation during the hot take season of festivals to say,

“You’ve never seen a movie quite like X.”

Such a statement has become overused to such a degree that it’s impossible to be taken seriously,

like how too many major new movies are gifted the m-word: masterpiece.

So how do critics convey when a film truly is unexpectedly,

brilliantly unpredictable in ways that feel revelatory?

And what do we do when we see an actual “masterpiece” in this era of critics crying wolf?

Especially one with so many twists and turns that the best writing about it

will be long after spoiler warnings aren’t needed? I’ll do my best because Bong Joon-ho’s

“Parasite” is unquestionably one of the best films of the year. Just trust me on this one.

Bong has made several films about class (including “Snowpiercer” and “Okja”),

but “Parasite” may be his most daring examination of the structural inequity that has come to define the world.

It is a tonal juggling act that first feels like a satire—a comedy of manners

that bounces a group of lovable con artists off a very wealthy family of awkward eccentrics.

And then Bong takes a hard right turn that asks us what we’re watching and sends us hurtling to bloodshed.

Can the poor really just step into the world of the rich?

The second half of “Parasite” is one of the most daring things I’ve seen in years narratively.

The film constantly threatens to come apart—to take one convoluted turn too many in ways that sink the project—but

Bong holds it all together, and the result is breathtaking.

Kim Ki-woo (Choi Woo-sik) and his family live on the edge of poverty.

They fold pizza boxes for a delivery company to make some cash, steal wi-fi from the coffee shop nearby,

and leave the windows open when the neighborhood is being fumigated to deal with their own infestation.

Kim Ki-woo’s life changes when a friend offers to recommend him as an English tutor for a girl

he’s been working with as the friend has to go out of the country for a while.

The friend is in love with the young girl and doesn’t want another tutor “slavering” over her.

Why he trusts Kim Ki-woo given what we know and learn about him is a valid question. อ่านต่อ

Reviews A tiger can crowd a lifeboat Ang Lee’s “Life of Pi” is a miraculous

Reviews A tiger can crowd a lifeboat Ang Lee’s “Life of Pi” is a miraculous

Life of Pi - A Film - Life of Pi

Ang Lee’s “Life of Pi” is a miraculous achievement of storytelling and a landmark of visual mastery.
Inspired by a worldwide best-seller that many readers must have assumed was unfilmable,
it is a triumph over its difficulties. It is also a moving spiritual achievement,
a movie whose title could have been shortened to “life.”
The story involves the 227 days that its teenage hero spends drifting across the Pacific in a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger.
They find themselves in the same boat after an amusing and colorful prologue,
which in itself could have been enlarged into an exciting family film.
Then it expands into a parable of survival, acceptance and adaptation. I imagine even Yann Martel,
the novel’s French-Canadian author, must be delighted to see how the usual kind of
Hollywood manhandling has been sidestepped by Lee’s poetic idealism.

The story begins in a small family zoo in Pondichery, India, where the boy christened Piscine is raised.

Piscine translates from French to English as “swimming pool,” but in an India where many more speak English than French,

his playmates of course nickname him “pee.” Determined to put an end to this,

he adopts the name “Pi,” demonstrating an uncanny ability to write down that mathematical constant that begins with 3.14 and never ends.

If Pi is a limitless number, that is the perfect name for a boy who seems to accept no limitations.

The zoo goes broke, and Pi’s father puts his family and a few valuable animals on a ship bound for Canada.
