Welcome—happy to have you here! You’ll find there’s so much to explore on Dwell.com, but I wanted to share a few of my favorites with you.
Nearly every summer, my family squeezes into a lakeside cottage in Northern Michigan. Its coral pink paint is chipped and fading, sand fills every crack in the floorboards, and the sofa sags, but I love it all the same. Some houses do that to us. With Camp Frio, architect Tim Cuppett perfectly captures this spirit of a family gathering place. It’s thoroughly modern, yes, but it evokes something so primal. We crave comfort, connection, the familiar. This Texas Hill Country home fosters just that.
This multifamily vacation property outside of Austin perfectly embodies the “gezelligheid” spirit.
We recently launched Dwell on This, a how-to series spearheaded by Gregory Han, a dear friend I met traveling last year. I may be biased, but I love how Gregory serves up snack-sized advice for switching it up at home. Can’t commit to painting your whole place? Paint your ceiling. Do it. Gregory will hold your hand through the process.
HOW-TO & GUIDES
Trade in that white canvas for a statement ceiling.
I’ve worked from an outsize monitor on a wobbly desk in my sixth-floor walk-up since March of last year—and I count myself exceedingly lucky to do so. Even still, I often dream of a different setup altogether. Specifically, this one. Behold, the Kugelschiff. Robert Edmonds of Edmonds + Lee Architects turned a vintage Airstream Bambi II into this enviable live/work space. Is that the open road calling?
RENOVATIONS + CAMPERS & TRAILERS
At just 80 square feet, The Kugelschiff is a renovated Airstream Bambi II that now serves as a tech entrepreneur’s tiny home and office.
Again, welcome to Dwell. I’m certain you’ll enjoy stumbling upon your own favorites, and be sure to leave a comment when you do.
