For fans of major modernist architecture and cutting-edge contemporary art, Grosse Pointe, Michigan may seem an unlikely destination. But beginning this week, the @hawkinsferryhouse (named for its original owner) will be the setting for a contemporary art show organized by the @mocadetroit. The exhibition, “Unobstructed Views,” comprises 39 paintings, many by Detroit artists. The best news? It's all for sale. For those who can't make it to Detroit, @paddle8 will host an online version of the auction from July 27 through August 8. Get the scoop on #ADPro through the #linkinbio

Having moved to San Francisco from New York City, fashion stylist @lauren_michael_goodman was able to take the best from both coasts to decorate her new family home. “New Yorkers, especially fashion people, are very good at mixing super dressy and super casual, like a ripped tee under a @chanel jacket...,” she says. And yet San Francisco seemed to her both more and less formal at the same time: “Sometimes interiors here can be extremely formal, which has its own charm—so chic and old world. But you'll also see @patagonia straight-up because you are actually going on a hike.” See how she accomplished a bit of both worlds in her home through the #linkinbio text by @christianelemieux; photo by @shadedeggesphotography

It’s never fun to work at home. But if you must do it, at least lighten the burden with a well-designed space carved into a sun-drenched part of the home. The den in Paula Wagner and Rick Nicita’s Tribeca home is a shining example of how to surround your workspace with beautiful design and natural light for peak productivity.

In search of the perfect grey paint color? Designer @cortneybishopdesign relies on @farrowandball’s “Down Pipe” for many of her projects because, according to Bishop, it’s “the most classic, old-world gray I have ever found, rich with a hint of green in it.” See other top designer’s go-to paint colors through the #linkinbio Photo by @kcharlottephoto

In an airy SoHo loft, designer and architect @nealbeckstedt expanded the footprint of the existing feature wall, redesigning the kiln-dried cypress panels so they climb the wall all the way to the skylight above. The installation creates a textural backdrop for the floating staircase, which the designer re-engineered with a new handrail and tread support system.

Here’s a reason to go back to school: Universities around the world spend a good deal of resources to ensure the library on campus inspires their students.

It was @marysiaswim’s daughter who spotted the sleek @davidhertz_studioea –designed house in Venice Beach, which the family proceeded to purchase and redecorate to be much cozier. “The challenge,” says Reeves's interior designer, @martha_mulholland, “was to work with what was already there—this really cool contemporary house—and make it suitable for a SoCal family that wanted something beachy and earthy.” See how they pulled it off through the #linkinbio Photo by @yerinmok

In 1947, the French designer Jean Royère redecorated his mother’s Paris apartment. The star of his grand redo? A rotund sofa called Boule, covered in a deliciously fuzzy velvet that would later inspire the design’s charming nickname, Ours Polaire—“polar bear.” Today, the iconic sofa and coordinating chairs are extremely rare, highly sought after, and can be found in a range of interiors. @dimorestudio, for example, covered one sofa in persimmon velvet for a dramatic Paris duplex.

In the wake of a striking @vancleefarpels exhibition and mega @louisvuitton fashion show, Japan’s cultural capital is experiencing a riveting renaissance that is driving tastemakers and tourists alike.
