One might not think of Hemet, California as a source for great style, but Morgan and Jeremy have taken Palm Springs flair to their Riverside County outpost. What I like most of their home office is the use of existing built-ins and updating it with new pulls and fresh paint. You can never go wrong with all white, especially when you can anchor the space with great, eclectic art. See the whole house at Apartment Therapy.

In celebration of the new season of Mad Men, I thought it would be nice to take a stroll down memory lane to an era of mid-century modernism. This comes from Plastolux, a fantastic blog of everything modern. Take a tour of this classic example of “form follows function” and “less is more” with Eero Saarinen’s bank project in Columbus, Indiana. Built in 1954 and has remained true to its natural form.

Call the doctor because I just felt my heart stop at first sight of this beautiful executive desk designed by Italian artisan Claudio Bellini. Created for Frezza who deals with Jofco for US domestic sales, the DR Collection combines natural carved walnut wood with modern accents like colored glass surface tops. The collection comprises of the casegood as seen above, as well as a freestanding desk, credenza and conferencing table. The executive collection made its debut at Neocon last month and is already garnering much attention. Check out the entire suite of furnishings at Jofco.
Consultants and freelancers will appreciate this one. Samsung has released a portable projector that basically fits in the size of your hand. Thanks to LED technology, the SP-HO3 Pico Projector measures 2.75″x1.5″x2.75″, weighs less than most cell phones, and has a 1 GB internal memory that provides a projected screen of 80 inches (30 ANSI lumens strength). The cool factor alone is reason to have this for your office. The practicality of it makes it a must-have. Imagine being able to transfer a file from your iPhone and let the projector run the show itself. Better yet, have this around to project what you have on your computer up on the wall for impromptu meetings. However you justify it, the $300 price tag is just what you need for work and play. In fact, I think it’s a great way to display and share your pictures from the recent 4th of July weekend. Check it out at Samsung‘s web site.
