OMG! A Reason to #FF on Twitter

I am still laughing about this $28,000,000 house that FreshHome just tweeted about on twitter. It is SO gaudy and hilarious (though I sure would not mind having that view!). Linking to the full post made my day:

It reminds me of this quote:

“Isn’t my house classic? The columns date back to 1972!” – Cher, Clueless

That sofa – I recently read this book called Some Girls: My Life in a Harem – it was about one of those ladies who went over to Brunei to “entertain” the sultan. I imagine this sofa would be perfect in the harem ladies’ quarters. By the way, it was really well written, I appreciated the author’s total honesty. However, I’d now like to redeem my reading choices by letting you know I’m currently reading Freedom.

I just found Coastal Living on Twitter today and have whiled away about an hour after being sucked into their website. Here are the original images that got me started on my intense browsing. They make me long for the ocean:

Love the Bertoias with the Saarinen tulip table, the blue, the wood, and most of all the view:

Love the way these Emeco chairs work in this shot:

I’m totally going to steal this color palette!:

The stainless steel countertops really work well here. Even though this kitchen is sleek, it’s still warm somehow:

Who do you follow on Twitter for design? Here are a few inspiring design move tweets some of my favorite tweeps posted over the weekend:

from PaulPincus:  “Paula Scher & Lenny Naar’s Band-Aid silkscreen poster for Pentagram. It’s framed in a lucite box and was installed in my office this morning. It’s great-looking!”:

From Freshome: A beautiful apartment full of bold color and gorgeous details in Hampstead London:

Vertigodesign (i.e. Design Evolution) let us know about this great view of The Parthenon at The Athens Gate Hotel:

An inspiring article via Land8.

SallyTV lets us see some bridge construction:

I’m not sure how I’m ever going to get any work done with so many great people to follow on twitter, but it sure is fun and inspiring. Again, let us know who you enjoy following for design inpsiration!

Architecture on Twitter

I admit it, I am a relative newbie to Twitter, even though Design Public has been tweeting for quite some time. Who are your favorite design tweeps that I might like to follow? Today I found this cool Mexican house, via styleture via freshome, designed by 7X Taller de Arquitectura.

At first glance, I thought this might be cargotecture, i.e. a house made of shipping containers, because of the shape of the second floor on the right side. I wonder if the forms created by making buildings out of shipping containers is starting to influence the style and form of buildings that contain no containers? Or is it a coincidence? Do you think the style gleaned more inspiration from international style and designers like Rem Koolhaas (I’m thinking Villa Dall’ava) or Corbu (I’m thinking a little Villa Savoye)?  Is it a combo? Am I the world’s worst architecture analyst? In any case, I’d love to see an inspiration board for this very interesting modern house. What do you think?
