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. 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?
