Before your day..

Before your day

Grab  your mug  of java. Take a deep  breath. Before you begin  head first into the craziness  that will be your day, allow your mind to drift into a peaceful  place.

Imagine  living in this place , or maybe just sitting and resting.


This design was crafted  by the loved  architect Mickey Muenig.

Many know him as “the father of organic modern.” I don’t  know that I could  think up those exact  words for this style  on my own, but after hearing them, that is right on the nose  what this room is. Very organic.

Filled with things that look as if they are part way  an outside room, such as the stone walls and wood, this space takes bringing the out of doors in, to a new level.

Very Modern. The clean lines and  general   atmosphere  of the room has an overwhelming sense of “modern.”

Yet, it’s  not cold and uninviting. This place lures  me to tranquility and to a peaceful  place.

I just want to grab a book and take in the beauty of the space all at the same time.

This is quite  a unique design. It’s  not one of those formulaic kitchens or something where you put in  the granite, back splack and cabinets and it is created…there are so many interesting characteristics in this very simple room.

Before your day

How does he do it? I love how the colors are neutral, yet there is that pop of blue that seems to totally go with the room.

I think part of the organic feel is that all the colors in the space could be found out of doors in nature, as well.

It really just ties everything together and cohesively makes it “organic modern.” So what do you think about the space?

See some more beauty at College Station Houses  or Austin Houses .
