Today’s Tumblr: Found by National Geographic

Dwell is a huge fan of Tumblrs for inspiration and pictorial satisfaction. Today, we focus on "Found," a Tumblr created by National Geographic to celebrate their 125th anniversary. Sourced from the National Geographic archives, many of these images were never published or released to the public. Although many of the images are missing their original date or location, they still reveal timeless moments across all cultures. The prints will also be available for sale in the National Geographic online store.

Photographer Focus: Rebecca Daniels

Rebecca Daniels is an architectural photographer based in San Francisco, mainly commissioned by local architects to shoot their latest project. She has a beautiful eye for abstract details, shapes, and colors. Whether it's a stairway, window or exterior wall, she takes advantage of the graphics around her and goes in for the tight detail. We love how one has no clue as to the scale, material, or object identity in her abstract series.

A Guide to 7 (Not So Tiny) Small House Resources

Small is the new big, and people everywhere—here and abroad, in cities and off-the-grid—are finding clever ways to pare down and live well in small spaces. (Sometimes, extremely small spaces.)

Dinner with Dwell & Lincoln

Lincoln & Dwell recently played host to a star-studded crowd of designers, architects, and tastemakers in Palm Springs for the finale of Modernism Week. The guests convened at the one-time Max Factor family estate The Fontenell for a cocktail hour and were then whisked away in a fleet of the new Lincoln MKZ to their surprise dinner destinations—six breathtaking modern homes. After being treated to tours of the homes by the homeowners themselves, guests dined on cuisine by chef Michael Beckman of Workshop Kitchen + Bar. Rousing conversation covering everything from the week's events to upcoming projects continued at an after party at The Fontenell. Guests included Moby, Mad Men’s Jessica Paré, Frances Anderton, Eames Demetrios, fashion designer Trina Turk, photographer Jonathan Skow, designer Jack Lenor Larsen, Henry Urbach, Director of the Glass House, architect Ray Kappe, and many others.

Modern Mornings

Admittedly, our pre-coffee state is less than cutting-edge with the new time change in effect, but these new coffee serving staples make our morning routines far more modern (if not less miserable).

A Bright Work Space in Milwaukee

Back in December 2010 we profiled furniture designers Vincent and Paul Georgeson of Misewell. Not only did we love their designs but we were also smitten with their work space. Growing up in southeastern Wisconsin, the brothers used to hang out in their father’s basement woodshop, fascinated by the process of building things. Now they spend their days in a beautiful light-filled studio, surrounded by their own designs (and dog Penny).

Texas house with open interior including bathtub and storage closets

A Bold Bathroom in Marfa

Designer Barbara Hill, whose renovation of a West Texas dance hall we adore, admits to putting her bathtub in the middle of her bedroom for "purely romantic reasons." From the bed, she can gaze straight out on the tub, though a pair of custom-made closets by George Sacaris offers a bit of seclusion from the rest of the house. Sacaris even roughed up the back panels of the closets with sandpaper to make them opaque while still letting light through. The tub itself is from Wetstyle's
