The macrame by xxx hangs in the living room and sliding glass doors were added to help integrate the home to the outdoors. The abundant desert sunshine makes natural lighting a viable option all day long.
Furnished by interior designer Jonna Kivilahti, this compact, two-storey detached Honka Fusion home near lake Saimma in Mikkeli, Finland was inspired by the traditional steeped roof cottages of Denmark.
The stair is partially suspended from the ceiling above, allowing the living space to maintain its usable space and height.
Roof overhangs allow light to fall in, but protect interior spaces from unwanted sunlight.  The redwood structure remains exposed on the interior, creating a seamless exterior to interior connection.
A planter is integrated under the open staircase leading to the upper floor, and a skylight in the roof illuminates the stairwell.
The brick-inlay structure anchors the open-plan living room.

This house is one of the five homes that are part of the Auhaus Release. Only 10 of each design will be built.
The home exemplifies the indoor-outdoor lifestyle of Southern California.
Existing 102-foot-long beams were sanded down to the bare wood and treated with a natural wax finish, exposing detail such as the big hex bolts joining them together.
The stylish staircase provides a strong focus for the open-plan interior, and was constructed out of fir plywood by Duerksen himself.
The open layout on the main level includes the living room with a fireplace, the dining room, and the kitchen.
The front great room is intentionally public; the furniture-like wall (inspired by Mies’ Farnsworth house) creates privacy for all other rooms—even with no window coverings. No rooms have interior walls that connect with the outer perimeter of the house, echoing a design element of our 1958 E. Stewart Williams house in Palm Springs, CA.
The small partition that separates the living space from the dining area is common in Brazilian homes. Revollo chose it for its character and tradition — as well as the fact that it still lets light in.
Since the owner wanted as much of an open concept as possible, Revollo used a small but impactful detail to designate each space: color. The kitchen is defined by black, the living areas by gray, and the outdoor space by honey.
The stunning canyon views can be enjoyed from all four levels of the house.
The ceilings have been painted white creating a more expansive sense of space.
The tongue-and-groove ceiling is an authentic midcentury touch, while clerestory windows help keep the living area bright.

The hotel is filled with a mix of vintage pieces from different eras, many sourced from the Perez Design District in Cathedral City and Etsy. The Antiques Gallery of Palm Springs in Sunny Dunes was a favorite source for "smalls," the quirky midcentury accessories like resin grapes or gravel art that can be found throughout the hotel. "Buying this type of furniture, you can't agonize over it," Kathy says. "If you think about it too long and wait, it may be gone."
The inn’s central ipe wood deck offers expansive views of the Malibu pier to the west, Palos Verdes Peninsula to the east, and the seemingly endless Pacific Ocean to the south. The design emphasizes the harmony of the indoor and outdoor spaces through the reflections of nature in the architecture, and the balance maintained between the building, the color palette, and the energy flow—culminating in a serene and zen-like experience.
The lobby, anchored by a pair of green velvet sofas and a fireplace, combines a lounge area and general store with beverages and snacks; games to play by the pool, in the room, or on the road; and a curated selection of retail goods.
Bertram retained Neutra’s open floor plan and minimalist aesthetic—soft white tones contrast with the dark slate geometric flooring.

In the living room, Samuel painted the exposed wood and stonework to unify the space and let the original texture step forward. (The wood had been painted already by previous owners.) A custom ten-foot sofa sits below the window and the green canvas armchairs are from Urban Outfitters.
