Into The Woods

May 20, 2019

To the beach…up North…or, to the shore. What does getting away this holiday weekend mean to you? To me, it’s simply enjoying a bit of peace and quiet. And, what could be more peaceful and quiet than this little black box of a retreat tucked neatly into the woods? Minimalist charred exterior, natural wood interior and every room with a view. Lovely.

Shifting the Conversation

January 10, 2019

While Washington argues concrete walls and steel barriers, let’s take a look at how both materials can be put to great simplequietmodern effect closer to home. The Lake House, by Suyama Peterson Deguchi, ticks all the right boxes. It’s always good to start the New Year with a fresh outlook and a little inspiration, isn’t it?

Takin’ It Outside

April 8, 2018

It won’t be long before we’ll be moving outdoors for our morning coffee, a sunny lunch or relaxing dinner.What could be more simple and welcoming than a long planked table and bench cozied up to a sprawling banquette? I’ve been inspired by this photo for so long, I’m thinking it might be time for a little weekend DIY before the weather breaks.

A stretch…a yawn…

March 4, 2015

a slow awakening. Sloughing off Winter to greet Spring all scrubbed and polished. Feeling like that first lungful of air that just smells like the earth is waking up too.

My simplequietmodern morning essentials; a Nuetrogena Original Formula Clear Cleansing Bar and Trader Joe’s Savon de France Oatmeal Exfoliant Ginger Almond soap…a fresh loofa and a natural nail brush. A perfectly simple bath environment for that total spa experience couldn’t hurt either.

Some sun,

June 28, 2014

a little water, a great view. What else could you want from a holiday weekend get-a-way? Key…check. Duffle…check. Provisions…check. Jaxon…check. All set to roll. Where are you spending the 4th?

Bridging The Gap

May 11, 2014

Gabions. Wire cages filled with rock, bridging the gap between rustic and modern, old and new, hard and soft. A landscape application that  I’m surprised I don’t see more of. Retaining walls, fences or even enclosures can be achieved cost effectively using steel wire gabion baskets with rock or stone…even recycled concrete. While it might look like a DIY project, seeking out a landscape professional could save some time and expense.

January…a good time to

January 13, 2014

clean out, edit, get rid of the old…create  a place for the new. It might even help ease some physical congestion if you release some congestion within your home or work environment. My mantra is simple;  If you haven’t used (or even looked at) something in the last year…it’s time to let it go. In the process, you might even find a gift card or two that you had put away for safe keeping but had gotten lost in all of the clutter. In the end of this exercise you’ll have space…room to breathe..maybe a few extra bucks. Not to mention a stack of empty corrugated boxes to recycle or ?  Now inhale…hold it…
