It's office month here at Curbly again (can you believe it's already been a year?? My goodness...) and we're excited to kick things off with a roundup of some of our favorite modern home offices across the web! So put your inspiration pants on, kids. This one's going to be a… Continue Reading
Normally, I have what can only be described as an insatiable appetite for color. If you looked around my home, it would hit you like a ton of bricks: Purple chair! Green walls! Blue walls! Orange sofa! You get the picture. But lately I've been really loving the idea of having an all-white kitchen (I might sneak a few pops of color in there, though, I can't help myself). So, in my constant search for inspiration, I rounded up
a few a bunch of my favorite modern kitchens in this oh-so-clean and crisp palette. Check 'em out… Continue Reading
We told you about our favorite pieces from Redefine Home, and now it's time to show you how we might use some of them in a room. Inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes, and if you're normally a do-it-yourselfer it's nice to look outside the normal places every once in awhile for sparks in creativity. Visualizing how a room might come together in your mind's eye is key to having all of the right elements in place once everything starts to come… Continue Reading
Remember the garage turned home from awhile back? Well, here's another one. This time the garage cum dream home belongs to Seattle-ite Michelle de la Vega, who not only designed her new house but did much of the remodeling herself. She even went to welding… Continue Reading
AirBnB.com is a service that helps connect people who have homes, apartments, or spare rooms to rent. On principle, I love the idea (why bother with hotels when you can stay in a real person's house?), but in practice, I have to admin results are mixed. We used AirBnB for a trip to New York City last year, and the place wasn't nearly as nice as the pictures made it out to be.
Still, if you just want to window shop, AirBnB is one of the best places on the Web to get tours of amazing living spaces around the world. Here are some of my recent, modern-ish… Continue Reading
Remember the post about the couple that turned a church into a home? Well, that makeover has some serious competition with these remakes. First up is a 1930's church located in Rotterdam,… Continue Reading
My big how-to video will be posted on Thursday and I'm so excited to share it with you. Until then, I personally invite you to hit me with you nesting dilemmas. Are there any home decor issues you need a little helping hand with? I'd love to hear and will answer your questions next week.
Feel free to ask about a particular room, color scheme, shopping advice, etc. We'd love to see a photo of the space in… Continue Reading
If all of this talk of fall entertaining drives you to drink, never fear, that's all you really need to be a great host. Building a stylish & chic bar can be your biggest asset during the cold and cozy seasons. Nothing welcomes someone into your home more than a freshly-poured drink on the rocks in a classic highball glass.
I've assembled most of our barware from Etsy. Vintage highballs, drinks carts and ice buckets that would fit nicely in Don Draper's office create an air of elegance we're sorely missing these days. I say we bring the classic five o'clock cocktail hour back with… Continue Reading
Le Papier Studio makes modern and elegant silhouette creations, and recently, owner Vana Chupp upgraded from working at home to a brand new studio and office space. And from the looks of it, she totally nailed it.
Bright, airy, well-organization, and seemingly incredibly functional. "Everything has it's space which make the studio look fairly organized most of the time (something I've always struggled with working from home). You might remember my original posts, here and here about my home office? Aaron custom built my work area - which I love - but as the business kept growing, so did the need for more space. I never thought I would enjoy so much working outside the home - but so far, this has proven to be the best decision I ever made. Not only am I super productive during the time I am in the studio, but I get to BE with my family when I am… Continue Reading
There are homes and then there are apartments. I'm not talking a yard versus non-yard scenario here. I'm talking about that comforting feeling of home versus that place in which you sleep, eat and store your stuff. Making your apartment feel like the former can be done simply and inexpensively. Here… Continue Reading
These are the sorts of the things that make humankind drool...
Apparently, it can be done. From Materialicious: "HOME humidifiers are appearing with many new features and stylish designs as seen by the seven shown on this link. It's important to maintain a healthy balance of moisture and the hot dry air found in most homes during the winter months. The humidifier pictured is by Rocca."
I post not because I am completely enamored with the design, though I am. I'm more interested in the trend over… Continue Reading

You gotta love that MoMA store: always beautiful, and often useful.
This Light Switch Rack offers the helpful inbox/outbox approach to home organization (albeit on a small scale) at a no-new-holes-in-your-wall cost. New from designer Paul Koh, just "Easily install this rack over your existing light switch cover near the door. The two knobs function as key hooks, and a convenient mail holder at the top reminds you to take the mail with you on your way out. Made of powder-coated aluminum."
I've seen a few over the years: homes with the facade flipped, roofs in the ground, patios pointed to the skies; though, inside, things are as usual, and perfectly liveable for those of us suffering from gravity.
But this new installation in Germany is something different all together: the floors are in the air, tables hang from above, and the toilets flush towards the… Continue Reading
