my future mod life

I used to dream of ultra-modern living spaces—- clean lines, bright whites, bold angles. I thought I’d grow up to live in a home that was immaculate (because someone else would clean it), with everything in its ultra-minimal and uber-stylish place. The couches would be too cool to sit on, the bathrooms would be like works of art and the bedroom would be my perfect escape.

Fast forward to two kids later, a housekeeper that visits only when one of us actually remembers to call and schedule her, and furniture selected by the following criteria: Will it hurt if one of our boys jumps off of it, runs into it or throws something from it? Is it stain resistant? Can we store toys in it without it looking like a toy box?

Until I can have the grown-up place I’ve always dreamed of, there’s this. Get ready to drool . . .

The art on the wall says, "See? Real people live here. They're just way hipper than you." I would have no idea how to pull that off . . . (House Szelpal by Felber Architects)

latest obsession

I think I just found a sweet spot where my love of all things clean and modern marries perfectly with my husband’s graphic design sensibilities.

AND they’re a nod to hip hop.

Seriously. It doesn’t get much better.

Check out these amazing prints by Paper Jam Press. You ever have one of those moments where you stumble across something so simple, but so perfect, and you wonder why you never think of things like that first? I’m right there…
