6 Illustrations Showing How Bathroom Designs Changed Every 100 Years Since 1520

Many of us hardly think about the room itself when going to the bathroom – we usually just do what needs to be done, wash our hands and go on our way. But here’s the thing: bathrooms didn’t always have the same toilet, sink, and shower (or bathtub) combo they do now. In fact, bathroom designs changed quite dramatically over the last 500 years – and UK company QS Supplies wanted to show people how and why these changes happened.

Here’s How 5 Bathrooms From Famous Paintings Would Look In Real Life By Qssupplies

Apparently, many artists out there have painted bathrooms. These six paintings highlight the interiors, mood, and general vibe of the bathrooms at the time they were painted. Most of them are quite surreal and tell some sort of a story. Some of them show the interior of the bathrooms and how they used to look like.

Artists from Qssupplies decided to bring these six bathrooms from famous paintings to life. They created detailed digital renders of what they might look like if they were real, while still keeping the style and mood of the original painting. Perhaps these recreations will inspire you to remake your own bathroom?

40 Simple And Short Yet Adorable And Fun Comics By BrainHoleSky

Some comics take their time to develop their characters and narrative. And they can be awesome. Often, however, we do not have the luxury to invest ourselves in such stories — just a few more minutes and we need to continue our day. Luckily, there are comics for these situations as well.

Taiwanese artist BrainHoleSky is on a mission to make people happy, and he’s trying to achieve it with just a couple of frames at a time. But even though his comics are short and simple, they’re absolutely adorable, too. Check them out to make your day fast.

BrainHoleSky loves drawing, telling jokes, and animals, and when they were traveling last year, a thought to combine all of these things struck their mind. “I started posting my comics on my personal Facebook account for my friends to see but after a while, their friends also wanted to check them out, so I started a fan page, and an Instagram account as well,” the artist told Bored Panda.#2

“Happiness, sadness, anger, love… My comics involve a lot of emotions. I think having animal characters is a good way to express them all. For example, a pug face can express a very sad situation. Or when you see a swelling pufferfish, you know it is very angry. You can very easily imagine how shocked umbrella lizard might look like. In conclusion, I often use animals symbols for emotions,” BrainHoleSky explained.#3

Since these comics are often only 2-3 frames, their author sometimes has too many things to fit inside of them. This could lead to readers not understanding the message, so BrainHoleSky said they have to be very careful with composition.

“All in all, I’m just really happy to see people enjoying my comics!”#4

Photographer Fulfills His Childhood Dream And Builds A Luxury Tree House To Live In

It was the spring of 2014 when Foster Huntington decided to chase his childhood dream. Soon, he began building a fairytale-like treehouse that he has been fantasizing about for years but the project he planned to spend a few months on ended up taking most of the year.

To begin the build, Huntington gathered a small group of friends from all over the country (some of whom were professional carpenters) and started planning the treehouse in Skamania County, Washington, on a piece of land that has belonged to his family for over 20 years.

About 12 months later, The Cinder Cone was finished. The multi-level structure consists of two treehouses, connected by a 25-foot bridge, a wood-fired hot tub, and even a skate bowl.

“I have always loved treehouses, so I thought it was time to build a big-boy one,” Huntington told Outside Magazine. “I wanted to make a place where my friends would want to come hang.”

Eventually, The Cinder Cone became his permanent home. Huntington estimates that the entire project cost him about $170,000. “I could’ve bought a house,” he told The New York Times. “But this is so much better. For me, it’s realizing a childhood dream.”

Artist Creates 16 Types Of Designer Packaging For Food Products To Show The Absurdity Of Brands

We’re all familiar with brands like Prada, Apple and Chanel. To most people, those brands carry a sense of luxury, quality, and refinement. There are also those who believe that such companies stand for decadence, mindless spending, and overpriced items. Perhaps driven by these conflicting opinions Israeli artist Peddy Mergui created a series of works where he imagined how would certain food products look like if they were packaged by famous brands.

The project is called Wheat is Wheat is Wheat and explores the idea of how brand packaging changes our perception. After all, the food inside is still the same. “The exhibition explores the dynamic and often blurred ethical boundaries of design within consumer culture”. That’s how the artist himself describes the idea.

10 Modern-Rustic Weekend Houses in the Country

Hot summers in the city get old pretty fast, so having a weekend house in the country is a luxury. But that doesn’t mean that luxury can’t be rustic. Here are 10 residences that are stunning in their get-away-from-it-all simplicity.

Enter the Best of Year Awards by September 20

1. Hilltop Aerie by Aidlin Darling Design Provides Respite in Northern California

Two San Francisco denizens working in finance and tech came to Aidlin Darling Design with a straightforward proposition. Create a simple, efficient house, restrained in cost and scale, for their empty hillside site in Glen Ellen, about an hour north of the city. The couple’s only imperative? A single-story plan. Since Barry Mehew and David Rice were familiar with tending to aging relatives, they knew to avoid the hazards staircases present (their main residence, a four-story Victorian in the city, has plenty). Although they envisioned this new house as a weekend getaway for now, they anticipate eventually spending most of their time there, and downsizing to a pied-à-terre back in the city. Read more about this project

2. Jan Henrik Jensen Designs Unconventional Round House in Denmark

In the Danish shelter magazine that Finn and Janni Holm subscribe to, architect Jan Henrik Jansenwas pictured sitting in front of a house that he had constructed with his own hands. “We just rang him and asked him to do one for us,” Janni Holm says. “That’s where our adventure started.” The Holms had decided to build a new home on a lot and a simple wooden farmhouse was what they had in mind. What they got was entirely different, thanks to Jansen’s standard procedure: always conceiving more than one solution for a project. He first showed the Holms a design that corresponded exactly to their farmhouse brief. Then he surprised them with plans for a radically different idea: a round house. Read more about this project

3. SPG Architects Transforms Lilian Swann Saarinen’s Former Cape Cod Residence

Modernist royalty, by marriage, Lilian Swann Saarinen had met her husband, Eero, when she was studying sculpture at the Cranbrook Academy of Art, headed by his father, Eliel. After the younger Saarinens’ divorce in 1953, she moved to Cambridge, Massachusetts, with their two children and asked former Eero Saarinen and Associates architect Olav Hammarstrom to expand a fisherman’s cottage in the Cape Cod town of Wellfleet for use as a low-budget family getaway. “On the Cape, a lot of architects built on a dime and a prayer,” SPG Architects principal Eric Gartner explains. Considerably more painstaking was his own task: updating the Hammarstrom design for repeat clients, one in financial services and the other a sculptor. Read more about this project

4. The Success of Andreas Martin Löf’s House Near Stockholm Lies in Being Playful and Taking Risks

“Everybody was against it,” Andreas Martin-Löf says, looking at the offending infinity pool outside his weekend house in the Stockholm archipelago. “My friends thought it was nouveau riche. They wondered why I couldn’t just go down to the jetty for a swim, like everyone else.” Traditionally, Swedes favor rustic summer retreats, and Martin-Löf concedes that he usually dislikes “luxury” architecture both personally and in his work at Andreas Martin-Löf Architects. Yet he was intrigued by the possibility of the infinity pool as a mirror for the property’s pine trees and expansive water views. “The pool is a crucial part of the success of the house,” he continues. “You have to be a bit playful and take a few risks.” Read more about this project

5. Michigan Lake House by Desai Chia Architecture: 2016 Best of Year Winner for Country House

A real-estate entrepreneur clipped and saved a newspaper story about Arjun Desai and Katherine Chia’s glassy weekend pavilion that won a Best of Year Award in 2013. The entrepreneur was intrigued by the way the house practically floated above its spectacular surroundings, a bucolic estate in rural New York—because he had just bought 60 acres on a remote peninsula jutting into Lake Michigan. Arguably even more extraordinary than the New York site, this one sits between a cherry orchard and a bluff plunging 120 feet down to the water. Read more about this project

6. Minimalist Gem by Atelier Carvalho Arujo Masters a Tricky Site in Portugal 

Modernist-minded designers often mine bodies of water for inspiration. Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater—perhaps the greatest house of the 20th century—wouldn’t exist without the stream that runs, dramatically, below it. Following in this storied tradition, Atelier Carvalho Araújo used water as both guide and counterpoint in designing a house in Vieira do Minho, Portugal. The site is a steep slope overlooking the Caniçada Valley, about 20 miles northeast of Braga. A stream meanders down the site, connecting ponds at the top and bottom of the hillside, both now corralled into freeform pools.“Architecture must have the gift of awakening sensations, emotions,” principal José Manuel Carvalho Araújo says. “The only thing I don’t want to evoke is indifference.” Read more about this project

7. Nathanael Dorent and Lily Jencks Conceive Stone-Clad House Near the Estate of Her Father, Charles

When it comes to delivering the unexpected, Nathanael Dorent and Lily Jencks, respectively 33 and 35 years old, have already developed a reputation. The pair transformed a tiny tile showroom in London with an installation of porcelain planks, playing cleverly with geometry in just four shades of gray to achieve a dazzling op art effect—a tour de force that landed right on the cover of Interior Design. Now, with a weekend house in Scotland, Nathanael Dorent Architecture and Lily Jencks Studio have defied expectation in very different ways. Read more about this project

8. Nani Marquina’s Costa Brava Retreat Is a Collector’s Paradise

Nani Marquina has a thing for straw hand brooms. The textile designer and Nanimarquinafounder owns more than two-dozen such specimens, sourced from locales as far flung as Thailand, Pakistan, and Ibiza. Her collecting passion also extends to woven baskets, beaded necklaces, teapots, seeds, dried gourds, soap, succulents, and sand (stored in fish bowls), all of which garnish the Esclanyà, Spain, getaway she shares with her husband, photographer Albert Font. The 1970s dwelling has a whitewashed simplicity that renders it a perfect backdrop for the couple’s assorted ephemera. “The most important thing is not the container, but the contents,” Marquina says. Read more about his project

9. Architect Mathias Klotz Creates a Pair of Cottages on a Remote Island in Chile

For Chileans—especially those who live in the frenetic capital, Santiago—a second home is an essential refuge, an escape to the serene beauty of the natural landscape. Architect Mathias Klotz, principal of his eponymous firm, has designed many such houses, characteristically with a clean-lined modernism that nods to one of his heroes, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. For his own family’s retreat on a largely undeveloped coastal island, he used archetypal forms that evoke both past and present. Constrained by the remote location and tricky logistics, the result is a timeless design that blends into the pristine setting. Read more about this project

10. Mork Ulnes Architects and Office of Charles de Lisle Create a Minimalist Guesthouse in Sonoma

Casper Mork-Ulnes was born in Norway, moved to Italy at age 2, and came to San Francisco at 16. He also lived in Scotland and studied architecture at California College of the Arts and Columbia University before establishing Mork Ulnes Architects back in San Francisco. That’s an unusually lengthy introduction, granted, to an unusual small project in the Sonoma Valley town of Glen Ellen. Mork-Ulnes had remodeled the property’s original house for its previous owners. The new ones, a family of five, brought him back for a guesthouse. At 840 square feet, it comprises three volumes, each of which contains a bedroom and a bathroom. They’re arranged in a stepped configuration, sharing party walls and a canted roof but no internal corridor. Read more about this project

Groves & Co. Brings Subtle Luxury to an Executive Suite for Michael Kors

PROJECT NAME Michael Kors Executive Suite
LOCATION New York
FIRM Groves & Co.
SQ. FT. 2,000 SQF

A fast pace and high pressure are mainstays in the world of fashion superstar Michael Kors and his husband, fashion designer Lance Le Pere. But they like their surroundings understated and serene. For years, they have been drawn to the layered modernism of Groves & Co., which designed their three residences in New York and Florida. When it came time to renovate the 2,000-square-foot executive suite where Kors and Le Pere work, they asked Russell Groves to bring his subtle luxury there as well.

Inside the executive suite at the Michael Kors headquarters, a Mart Stam chair stands on a wool rug in the office of creative director Lance Le Pere. Photography by Tim Williams.

In the same building as the Manhattan headquarters of Michael Kors, the clothing and accessories company, which recently acquired Versace for approximately $2 billion, the office consists of four main areas arranged in an enfilade: reception, conference room, and an office each for Kors and Le Pere, who is the creative director of the women’s collection.

Custom walnut desks outfit reception. Photography by Tim Williams.

 

“Unlike his public persona, Michael’s personal aesthetic is quite pulled back,” Groves begins. “He works with color all day long, so he requested a neutral space.” The walls and ceiling are painted white; black and grays appear in flooring and furniture, Groves playing with textures and finishes for visual interest. Walnut, oak, Italian marble, glass, and stainless steel compose the materials palette,  with faux fur blankets and pillows from the Michael Kors Collection and wool and leather details adding softness. Classic furnishings by the likes of Charles and Ray Eames and Florence Knoll are rooted in mid-century modernism.

Pieces by Florence Knoll, Paul McCobb, and Warren Platner furnish reception. Photography by Tim Williams.

 

The result is a calculated visual palate cleanser. “Russell immediately understood the combination of efficiency, elegance, comfort, and personality that are so important for our work environment,” Kors states. But simplicity, Groves suggests, is actually hard to engineer. “It’s like a fashion show,” he says. “Behind the screen it’s utter chaos. But when the model walks down the runway, it looks effortless.”
