Minimalistic Van Life

Van Buildouts For Magic, Minimalistic Travels.

There’s something so intriguing about riding off the grid and into some unknown territory with little worries. Chasing the surf, the mountains, the slopes– whatever it may be, there is a simple art in treading a minimalistic life of travel. I will never forget the incredible, minimalistic vans I witnessed while living in Bondi Beach, Australia. Surfers from around the globe gathered here with just basic necessities and a stoked mindset. It is quite wild how you can make a van so accessible to your everyday needs. Just the basics, nothing more. It’s the new way of creating your eco home. Take a look into these minimalistic, bohemian van buildouts that will inspire your next mobile adventure and take you into the full swing of van life.

Modern Architecture Worth Moving For

Modern architecture is determinably minimalist, with open, light-filled living areas, and bold angles.

With a philosophy of form following function, modern architecture expresses itself through simplicity. Often using elements of wood, glass, and steel, the contemporary style of architecture emphasizes the structure and materials used in the building as opposed to embellishing them up with ornate designs. You will often see vaulted ceilings, exposed structural elements, and unique linear elements.

Take a look at some extraordinary designs in our selection!

Modern Farmhouses

A house in the country could be your weekend escape, or perhaps where you experience everyday life of tending to land or caring for animals. While immersed in nature, it benefits the flow of your home to incorporate as many natural elements as possible. Even if you are aiming for a modern edge with the design and decor of your home, you might still utilize as many organic materials as you can find to keep the feel peaceful and grounding.

When we envision modern decor, polished surfaces, sleek angles, and crisp edges come to mind. To soften the sharper edge of contemporary style to adapt to the countryside,  you may begin by adding accents of timber, wicker, and fresh flowers and plant life. Ideally, your home will have large windows to illuminate the space with sunlight, and views of the surrounding forests or pastures. To keep the flow of the outdoor landscapes, utilize an earthy, neutral color palette.

Draw some inspiration from our selection of homes with a lovely fusion of contemporary and countryside styles. With all the right ingredients, these homes have created the perfect modern farmhouses.

Stunning Southern Style Homes

In classical and modern Southern design and architecture, we often see sweeping white surfaces for a cooling effect, tall columns lining long covered porches, lush landscapes with lots of shade, and plentiful lounge areas to relax with shelter from the heat.

The style in the South is about making you feel cool, fresh, and comfortable. It’s important for a home to be situated amongst tall trees, often flowering trees like Magnolias, that provide a lot of shade to keep the interior of the house away from the intense heat of the Southern sun.

Patios, porches, verandas, and sunrooms are key features in Southern homes. They are where the majority of downtime is spent reading or resting, and where you entertain guests for coffee, tea, or apéritifs. We often see large porch swings with an array of cushions, wide wicker chairs, rocking chairs, and cushioned reclining chairs. Lighting is kept soft and ambient, often still incorporating gas lamps and candlelight.

Interiors range from simplistic and modern, to lavishly extravagant. Take a look at some of these selections of Southern homes and soak up their charm!

City Dwellings

More than half of the world population lives in urban areas, thus cities have become the dominant habitat for or species. Although there are no cities in the world that are fully sustainable, it is easier to preserve the land outside urban zones if more people are living urban lives.

When you live in an urban zone, you will most likely not have a yard with trees and plants, so the most important thing about maintaining a healthy and inviting living space is making your home into an environment that is both cozy and full of life. Incorporating plant life and plenty of natural light into your modern city dwelling will ensure that you feel the energizing effects of nature in your urban lifestyle.

Having a modern home in the city means building, designing, and decorating with efficiency and functionality. As it is common for city dwellings to be a bit more compact than suburban or country homes, it is often important to incorporate elements that are taller vertically for storage or display. When you can’t expand outwards, you must stack upwards.

Take a look at some of these modern city dwellings for inspiration for your home’s design and decor!

Epic Bathrooms

Your bathroom is a place of cleansing and renewal, and you should feel an immense sense of peace upon entering and leaving. It is where you prepare for your day, and where you spend your last moments of self-care before sleeping.

Treat yourself to the experience of a serene spa retreat, right inside your own home. Fill your bathroom environment with greenery, rich with fresh aromas of flowers and essential oils. Keep the area tidy and organized, hang artwork, or make a mosaic of tilework. Ideally, you want your bathroom to be illuminated with natural light, but you can also play with mirrors to reflect light from wall to wall. You want to feel like spending hours in your bathroom, a personal place of zen and luxury.

We love these selections of luxurious bathrooms, where your cleansing ritual becomes a space of escape and quietude.

Lavish Industrial Lofts to Love

3 Frank Lloyd Wright Works We Love

Frank Lloyd Wright had a long and prolific career spanning more than 70 years, and brought American architecture to the forefront of the world view. His craftsmanship was pristine and visionary, strongly influenced by the natural world, while embracing technology’s ability to make design universally accessible.

Wright designed every sort of structure imaginable, and often additionally designed the interior elements like furniture and fixtures such as stained glass.  He pioneered the Prairie School movement in American architecture, famous for sleek horizontal lines, broad overhanging eaves, and overall integration into the landscape.

Take a peek at our top three selections for architectural wonders designed by Frank Lloyd Wright that have dazzled the world.

 

 

Fallingwater

Built in 1939, Fallingwater is likely Wright’s most famous work. Perched atop a rushing waterfall nestled into the forest, this summer escape in Pennsylvania draws millions of visitors year round.
