Multi-Coloured Apartment

Image
Interior use of rich colors and patterns was developed by Swedish Artists and Architects like Carl Larsson and Josef Frank.  This apartment also relates directly to it’s setting overlooking Humle gården park in Stockholm, Sweden, where the greenery outside changes with the season, from winter grey and black, to bright and deep green in summer, to orange, red and yellow during autumn.





















Eichlers Contemporary House

Image
The new owners of this home had long dreamed of an Eichler remodel they would live in forever. Their vision was clean, contemporary, and open. Klopf Architecture would design and reconfigure the kitchen family room, remove some walls and add windows, reconfigure the bathrooms / laundry areas / closets and upgrade systems to be more efficient, while working closely with the talented executive mother of three on selection of interior finishes and fixtures. The owners decorated and furnished the home themselves, with many vintage mid-century modern furniture pieces and original art.

The Black House

Image
Perched between rock formations in the high desert city of Yucca Valley, California, sits a black house, the origins of which started with the observation of shadows. Specifically, the idea that the sunlight in the desert is often so bright that the eye’s only resting place is the shadows. This was how Marc Atlan described his inspiration for a second home in the desert near Joshua Tree National Park, and he set out to create a unique hideaway unlike anything else in the area. Atlan, a creative director for brands like Comme des Garçons, Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs, devoted the same type of creative energy exerted for his clients into creating the property ultimately dubbed “the Black Desert House.”
