Do you like exposed brick? I am definitely a fan as long as it is authentic. I have seen exposed brick that was obviously constructed as a design element rather than an original structural part of the space and it does not work. However, if it is original brickwork and the design surrounding it is done right, it can be amazing!

Kids Dream Home...

When people think of modern homes, they automatically assume cold and museum like, a place not suitable or comfortable for a young family. However, imagine a beautiful, eco-friendly modern home that was specifically built with the family in mind?

That is what British architect Alex Michaelis created for his family of five in London. Seriously, for all of those that hate on modern design, you cannot deny this house is pretty fabulous!
