A Green House Becomes A Studio/Office Space


This idea intrigues me more than you know.


This man started looking for prefab studios,offices
and decided on this gorgeous all wood and glass
GREENHOUSE.
wowza!


His concerns were....
since he lives in San Francisco ....
'Would it remain water tight?'
He says; "that so far it has."

As you can see he built a platform for the greenhouse to sit on-
He only needed a space heater to get him through this winter.


He is very happy with his project.
I see that a few of the glass walls and windows 
have been replaced by frosted glass.
A privacy issue no doubt.


Couldn't you see yourself blogging from this desk?

I could.

Container Homes - Thinking OUT Of The Box And IN The Box At The Same Time

 Adam Kalkin and SHIPPING Containers.....
Container Homes - Thinking OUT Of The Box And IN The Box
Container Homes &  Prefabs by Adam Kalkin, 

I could certainly live with this main area....
(with a few changes) 
COULD YOU?
I am sorry....
I think this is such a COOL CONCEPT!!


Here is a different model that Adam Kalkin has designed.
I urge you to go to his site and snoop around.


....I know what's going on with me.....
I have lived in design specializing in the 'Georgian Era' for so long
(over 30 years)
that I am craving to live in an industrial/working studio feel.
I have always loved the Industrial Look,
but was trapped.

My next place will exude 'industrial' 
with important accessories from the past.

Adam Kalkin

This is the 'Braniac' Himself; ADAM KALKIN

regarding the plan above

The name of this model could be insulting 
if it didn't 'hit the mark!!'

I was thinking this is just what I would do if I found a 'Loft Style Space'
for myself.
(just look at the closet!)

The best yet 
would be to
find a small property looking 
over the ocean or a river,
and plop this puppy down.

Instant Happiness.

This model is called BUNNY LANE -


This is one of the interiors in the BUNNY LANE.
He shows by this example 
that your insides 
don't have to match your outsides.
Wisdom.
Don't judge a book by it's cover -
not with a Prefab Container Home.

More Bunny Lane Interiors
Who'd a thunk it??????


Just plant this Prefab Container Home on your favorite spot....
and Home Sweet Home.

Please explore the sites below.
They are pretty wild

HOMES...Painted All Black (or Dark Charcoal )


Call me crazy, but I am almost sure this is the smallest house 
in Manhattan.
It is cool. NO?



I am such a BLACK lover 
that I decided to find as many Black Houses that I could  in one post....
and I think each are delicious in their own way. 

10 Downing St.

We know who's cool 
and who lives here.
DON"T WE?

Well.....
I must admit there have been cooler P.M.s.


Fun.


I noticed my first black residential house this year 
while driving through Rockland Maine.
It was so sharp.



Spooky



If this were mine...
(love bricks painted)
I would have used a black and white awning over the door
trimmed with wood tassels.


Black and full of charm, 
who knew???
Are those RED geraniums ? 
YUM!!!!
A natural choice to go with black or white painted brick




Grow a garden on your roof....




The above home....
I could see myself living happily ever after.



However the one above has me really thinking.
A small black patent leather house ???
That's me!!!
I mean...it would only be me living there.
YEAH!!!


Can you imagine?
Chic little BLACK playhouses.
Hmmmmmm.......
I wonder what sort of play time those kiddies have in there??
I hope they don't play with pentagrams!!!


I hope you have enjoyed my Black House Tour.

XX;s

Spring should be ending for me later during this week.
YEAH!!!
I hope you enjoy
Landscape Designs 2013 - Maine - Part I of II


Vertical plantings are great 
on a big boring wall on the exterior of you home.


I would eat in this restaurant just for the stunning landscaping!
Right?


Outdoor fire pit anyone???


You can plot a stone patio anywhere and add so much
to your outdoor living.


A log low pathway-bridge over a small stream.


Earthy.
I love this pathway.
And You?


Wild Maine.


The is no shortage of stone, slate, and granite 
in Maine to utilize in all your home designs.






I dream of this lawn.
How unbelievable simple & elegant!!!

More stoned pathways.


Love the moss in between the stones.



So Maine!




And this suits me just fine as well.
Love it.

What do you think of some of the ideas?
You Likie?

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
