Apparently this piece is exploring the current state governing the relationships between men and women in today’s society, and is inspired by the psychoanalytical theories of Arno Gruen.

I am drawn to the magic realism of her work, and the dual forces of nature that toil at the heart of this piece. -tM

Sex Appeal

The new AESOP store in Rome designed by none other then the director himself, Luca Guadagnino. Is there anything this man cannot do? Even his designs are full of longing & desire. The voyeuristic appeal of the window from the sidelines beckons me to come take a closer look. This store is as sexy on the inside as on the outside. -tM

Existentialist Minimalism?

Calm, and patient, this video explores the minimalist architecture of Le Corbusier, who was one of the pioneers of urban planning and architecture. He dedicated his life to providing better living conditions for those residing in crowded cities.

I can still hear the ocean and distant highway traffic long after the picture has stopped moving. -tM

Everything Old is New Again

I am appreciative of the attention to detail in this Italian restaurant. Merging the old world with the new, from the flag poles that fly the local news, to the booths, that with a simple mechanical turn of the table can go from an intimate seating for one to friendship for two. Function, form, and beautiful design. Once lost, now found, simplicity is here to stay. -tM

Spaces of Serenity

I love the way one would move through this room. Straight lines direct you but the curves entice you to linger a little longer, to take a seat, to loose your inhibitions.

Sensual, classic, and contemporary, the colour and texture of this space move me toward an inner state of peace. tM

You Are Here

When you accept and respect where you are at, and begin to go with the flow of your surroundings, life begins to flourish within and around you. -tM

Cravings

"Loving is a journey with water and with stars, with smothered air and abrupt storms of flour: loving is a clash of lightning-bolts and two bodies defeated by a single drop of honey." - Pablo Neruda

Artist: Cy Twombly

There is opposition and struggle even in love.  A force so great, that if willing, allows you the opportunity to become more then what you are, by inclusion. -tM

Miss Liberty

While she was being built there were parts of her gracing specific locations from Paris to the United States. 

This kind of process display would never happen today. I think her fragmented tour was an interesting way to at the very least make space in the workshop while the rest of her was being shipped off piece to piece to her final resting place. It also gave people the appreciation of her exact proportions, which were to say at the very least, quite intimidating. -tM

Garden Scapes

From Mediterranean and Spanish Hacienda inspired gardens in Los Angeles, to an 18th century restoration of a chateau in France, the art and design of landscaping is just as important as interior design.  It is all part of the architectural design of the home. There is no separation, it is just an extension. -tM
