Happy Thanksgiving (giving thanks to modern interiors)

Architecturally, I define our home as "soft industrial." Exposed douglas fir softens the open living space, while concrete floors, stainless steel and dark hues of grey give our home a little "edge." The following renderings depict the outside of the home:

Our approach to the interior design of the home (the furniture, fixtures, art...every detail that completes the experience of the space) is defined just the same.

I have spent the better part of the past 6 months (with the fantastic support of my mom), reading modern blogs and magazines and gathering design ideas. "Modern" can be minimalist, but still prohibitvely expensive. The key is to be creative and resourceful. Good design can be luxurious and not so costly.

Without giving too much away, here are a number of images that have inspired the interior experience of our home:
