An Artist Playhouse

For artist turned writer Douglas Coupland, author of Generation X and new novel, Generation A, the travel time to get to his second home is only 25 seconds. Yes, that short as it sits right behind his primary residence. He bought the property in Vancouver, British Columbia, to preserve the mid-century architecture he felt was disappearing. He then decided to keep an open floor plan so he could showcase his art. Even though the house has two floors, it only feels like one. However, he kept the house's best features intact — the exposed paneled ceiling downstairs and the modular pattern of the rooms. One of the things I love about this place is that it doesn't feel stuffy considering the amount art in it. To the contrary, if feels accessible and playful. With such a gorgeous second home, I'm sure the primary residence must feel pretty jealous.

Artful living

If you ask any art collector what his or her ideal home would be, I'm almost positive this outrageously handsome loft is it. The Collector's Loft, in Greenwich Village in Manhattan, was designed by Dutch architectural team UN Studio. Their design concept explores the interaction between a private gallery and living space. They decided to replace some of the existing windows for floor-to-ceiling glass panels to frame the spectacular skyline views the city has to offer. The sensual curves of the walls serve as backdrop to their splendid collection of art, as well as separating the living areas. For flooring, the designers chose 1½ feet wide planks of douglas fir to maintain the right proportions. And of course, with almost 6000 square-feet of open space, minimalism was the way to go.

It “felt” right

It's been a week since I returned from the land of Van Gogh and it's been very hard to bounce back from the Amsterdam state of mind. I came back very inspired by its simple and yet rich sense of design. Browsing the web looking for Dutch artists and designers to showcase in my blog, I came across this unbelievable house. I knew right then and there that I had to share it with you. It belongs to Dutch artist Paula Leen whose craft is to create a sublime collection of home accessories using wool felt.
