House Tour: Living Library in Mumbai

House Tour: Living Library in Mumbai

Today we’re bringing you a new house tour. It also happens to be our first international house tour! Located in the Sion region of Mumbai this space was designed by friends of the blog Huzefa Rangwala and Jasem Pirani of MuseLAB. The home is a large four bedroom apartment that the owners wanted reconfigured to better suit their needs. The main challenge was the large plus-shaped space that they wanted to accommodate a formal living area, a dining area, a den, and a very very large library. Let’s take a look at their approach to the design and how the space turned out.

Get the Look For Less: Grimm Stars’ Hollywood Hills Home

Get the Look For Less: Grimm Stars’ Hollywood Hills Home

As fans of the television show Grimm, when Apartment Therapy posted a tour of David Giuntoli and Bitsie Tulloch’s home we were thrilled to see the stars again. We were even more thrilled (though not surprised!) to see that their home is stunning. Mid-century modern influences perfectly complement the Spanish architecture of the house, creating a bright, sunny oasis. Inspired by their interior design choices (and because we miss Grimm) we decided to highlight a couple of their rooms, and show how to get the look for less.

Throwback Thursday: 1940s Style

Throwback Thursday: 1940s Style

The 1940s is basically defined by World War II. Basically every aspect of life was affected by it. In terms of design the decade is basically split into wartime and post-war. During the ware there wasn’t much new design as rationing and supply shortages stifled production for anything but war supplies. After the war it was a time of recovery, and production ramped up again. Technologies that had been developed for war use were now available to home consumers. After the war was also when the rise of the single-family suburban home began. While the first half of the ‘40s was still heavily influenced by the designs of the 1930s, the second half set the stage for the mid-century modern design of the 1950s that’s been so popular lately. But let’s take a look at what was going on design-wise during the 1940s.

Get the Look for Less: Mandy Moore’s Dreamy Mid-Century Home

Get the Look for Less: Mandy Moore’s Dreamy Mid-Century Home

Last month Architectural Digest gave us an inside look at Mandy Moore’s Pasadena home and we’ve been drooling over it ever since. We figured we can’t be the only ones obsessed with this beautiful mid-century modern inspired space, so we decided to put together our own takes on her home. Since we obviously don’t all have the budget of an actress on hit network television show, we tried to keep things a little more attainable. Let’s take a look at how you can recreate Mandy Moore’s mid-century style in your own home.
