Mid-Century Postcard Photographs

March 25th, 2012







Stumbling upon mid-century postcard photographs is a lot like finding treasure. This set includes several locations, but the two that bring back memories are the Nogales and Sands Motel postcards. When I was a kid my family and I went into Nogales. I don’t remember a whole lot except that Nogales didn’t look anywhere near as nice as the photo does.

Corallo House by Paz Arquitectura

March 23rd, 2012




The Corallo House in Guatemala City is the work of the amazing Paz Arquitectura team. The house’s beauty and design feels entirely natural even though it embodies such a modern aesthetic. From the balcony to the stairs and then to the integrated living room tree, everything about this house is magnificent. Shared from Contemporist

Geometric Pattern Wallpapers for iPad by Simon Page

March 21st, 2012



Simon Page created a bunch of really great geometric pattern wallpapers for the newest (3rd generation) iPad. The wallpapers look great on the new retina screen. This is the first iPad I’ve owned and I’m blown away by the quality and the actual device itself. Can’t wait to work on apps for the iPad. Definitely will be looking for an iOS developer in the next two months.

Analog Double Exposures by Florian Imgrund

March 13th, 2012



German Photographer Florian Imgrund shot these awesome double exposures on a 6×6 film camera. It’s great to see photographers still shooting double exposures. I often find they’re my favorite type of photos.

Chemosphere Residence by John Lautner

March 9th, 2012



John Lautner is by far one of my favorite architects. This house titled Chemosphere was built in 1960 and is now owned by Benedikt and Angelika Taschen. The is perched high above the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles and has gorgeous open views. To get to the house, you take a funicular (rail-car) up the hill from 100 feet below the house.

As with John Lautner’s other works, my main interest in this home is of course the use of wood, but also the asymmetrical structure.

The Geometric Illustration Work of Justin mezzell

March 7th, 2012






Justin Mezzell’s geometric illustrations are fantastic. His pieces of work that include architecture, have that warm, muted color scheme reflective of a mid-century modern vibe. Also if you look closely in this image, you can see two Eames Lounge Chairs by the window.

Charles and Ray Eames Living Room Exhibit

March 6th, 2012



California Design, 1930-1965: Living in a Modern Way, an exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), pulled together pieces of great design which included Charles & Ray Eames’s living room from their 1949 Case Study house. The museum moved all of the objects from the living room to the exhibit where they were set up.

If you haven’t seen the documentary “Eames: The Architect and The Painter” you definitely should. There are more views of the house and insights into the lives of Charles and Ray. Also, catch more images of the original house and exhibit after the break.
