 A true stone fireplace.  A classic.  A timeless design element that doesn't overpower the room.  Best displayed when it's just left alone to age.  Another gem here in this place are the floors.  Original, raw pine in random widths.  Once again proud to show their age.
A quick shot of the exterior showing the craftsmanship of the stone work that was carried inside for the fireplace facing.

Moroccan Tile Floor

Instant character.  Take the classic, timeless subway tile and drop some Moroccan art on the floor.  A fresh idea.  Showcasing how a little accent can go a long way.

Pizza & Beer

The pizza truck.  This kicks ass.  A genius idea that brings old world style cooking and sleek design to the street.  The wood burning set up is impressive in any kitchen but throwing the whole operation on the back of a truck just takes it to a whole new level.  They've basically dropped a shipping container on this bad boy, installed the 5000lb. oven and finished it off with custom crafted metal/glass folding doors clad on the interior in salvaged wood.  A rustic vibe tying it all together.

And for some more mobile fun, the beer trailer or Hop Box.  Craft on draft.  A converted horse trailer that now houses 6 handcrafted beers.

Kitchen Bricks

A smaller European kitchen showcasing brick details.  Look just about anywhere and you'll find some kickass brick patterns and styles across many kitchen backslashes.  In this application, however, the brick becomes the focal point of the kitchen.  It may be subtle but it's all about the detail from the stacked pattern wrapping the island to the jack on jack pattern cladding the backsplash and wall surface.  A very cool example of taking the material and design a little further without going over the top.

Roll Out!

They're called the "Rolling Huts".  A property owners way of accommodating out-of-town family and friends.  Where can we sign up?  These are badass.  A rustic and raw cluster of camping pods designed to capture the killer mountain views and preserve the natural landscape.  Minimal in the material selection yet so clean and well crafted.  The huts are composed of plywood, steel, concrete and glass.  You can also check this post over at Fred Flare.

Black Tea

 A calming, relaxing little villa designed for enjoying a cup of tea.  A truly unique structure complete with a green roof, sliding interior panels and charred wood cladding.  Embracing and blending with the natural surroundings.  Simple yet so well crafted.

The burnt look is fresh whether you run with it on the interior or exterior.
