Aussie Living Room We Love

A mix of warm Brazilian furniture, refined antiques, period furniture, and contemporary lighting turn this renovation project in a hip suburb of Melbourne, Australia, into a family home for the ages. Owners Lisa Gorman and Dean Angelucci converted their 1860s brick-faced stable into a relaxed but design-friendly home with the help of their friend and architect Emilio Fuscaldo. It doesn't hurt that Angelucci is a dealer in rare mid-century furniture—his eye is in display in their sitting room, an adults' retreat among the happy havoc wreaked by two young daughters.

A Modern Kitchen Remodel in Austin

Built in 1950, Lloyd and Kirsten Thompson's Austin house had "some inherent mid-century charm and good flow," says architect J.C. Schmeil of Merzbau Design Collective. An addition, however, had been poorly done in the 70's—it was out of level, uninspiring, and made no connection to the backyard. So the couple hired Schmeil to remodel the addition, hoping to better connect the living area to the kitchen, dining area, and lounge; and to open the lounge to the outdoors. The result is a thoroughly modern space that looks as good as it functions. Click through the slideshow to learn more. And check out's Rooms section for lots more kitchen inspiration.

Architect Michael Graves by Riccardo Vecchio

7 Quotes on Living Well from Michael Graves

In preparation for Dwell on Design, we look forward to Michael Graves and the inspiration he will provide as our keynote speaker in June. Michael Graves is credited with broadening the role of the architect in society and raising public interest in good design as essential to the quality of everyday life. He has displayed his talents not only as an architect for the 20th century and beyond, but as a product designer and innovator for such well-known companies as Target, Alessi and now JCPenney. Through these rich experiences and his incredible travel history, the designer has gleaned invaluable insights into design and living. Here are just a few inspiring quotes from our latest interview.
