Remodel Project | Leila Lane

This home was fun to re-imagine and re-design. Because of the cathedral ceilings, built-in wall shelves, and niches, we decided to keep the current wall and trim colors, so we needed to find flooring that meshed with all the existing elements. We looked at hardwood, bamboo, vinyl, and cork flooring, and decided on Marazzi’s Harmony Note porcelain tile. I especially love wood-look porcelain tile, because you can have the look of wood, with the toughness and resiliency of tile, which was important in this case, because of the large Collie and cat that tear around the house.

Wassily Chair by Marcel Breuer | Friday Finds

The Wassily Chair is one of the most comfortable chairs I have ever sat in. The belted leather cushions in all the right places, and allows you to sink into the chair, but also be supported. My first experience with the Wassily Chair occurred at a lake house that my (very large, but not by Utah standards) family rented for an epic weekend to celebrate my Grandma’s birthday. The home was built by a famous Chicago architect, and in true architect fashion, he had all the classic chairs you can imagine, including a cowhide Le Corbusier LC4 Chaise Lounge. Continue Reading

Sun Tunnels is a magical place in the remote Great Basin Desert, outside of the ghost town of Lucin, Utah. Created by Nancy Holt in 1976, this land art installation was quite a feat. The concrete tunnels are nine feet high, eighteen feet long, and weigh twenty-two tons! Nancy collaborated with engineers, pipe manufacturers, drillers, truck drivers, and astronomers on this complex, riveting project. Arranged in an x-shaped configuration, the tunnels align perfectly with sunrises and sunsets. Continue Reading

The 10 Best Clear, See-Through Faucets

These trend-setting faucets will make you want to over-wash your hands, except for the fishbowl one, where the water drains out of the fishbowl as you wash, making you think about water conservancy as the fish’s water is draining rapidly. I guarantee that all the other faucets will make you want to turn on the water and just watch, they are so cool! In the world of faucets, there are so many to choose from. There are LED-lit faucets, 3D-printed metal and glass faucets, faucets that create a vortex of water, faucets that ration your water use, or at least make you realize and ponder your consumption. Regardless of which one you select, it’s bound to be a conversation starter, and just plain fun to use. Continue Reading
