arthur t brown house, tucson kitchen

I'm working on a renovation of the Arthur T. Brown house in Tucson.  Here's a animation of current concept.


although I'm BLUE, I'm heading for red

I'm off to Tucson next week to work on the Arthur Brown house.  While there, I think a trip to RED in Phoenix is warranted!


industrial design at its best

Working on the Williamsburg cottage - where French Industrial will meet folk - I came across this great blog entry.    My favorite pieces pictured?  This one, hands down (actually of UK design origin).

These pictures are worth a thousand words. 


patricia gray website - simple and stunning

I'm working on a website design for a design build group in Milwaukee.  So its been fun looking at designer sites from around the world for inspirations.  I've tagged many of course . . . and found Patricia Gray's website exceptional.  The magic of this website is, I believe, that it reflects her design philosophy . . . its a warm and personal site which allows her work to speak.  

Patricia blogs too.  And its there that I found this gem.  A do-it-yourself Grace Kelly Hermes bag.
