Open House: Bronxville Modern

This Mid-Century Bronxville home, designed by husband-and-wife team Paul Boardman and Marie Aiello, channels California's modernist style with stone, wood and glass elements, freestanding fire pit, and an indoor-outdoor living philosophy.

Designer Living: Lori Dennis

Eco-friendly interior designer Lori Dennis believes that nothing should go to waste, so she updated existing elements to turn her 1970s ranch-style residence in Los Angeles into a mid-century modern beauty. Watch Lori's smart pointers on how to freshen up a door with a bold hue, add murals to brighten up spaces and upcycle old pieces like a threadbare carpet, which she converted into a stylish ottoman with chrome legs.

New York architecture studio Axis Mundi designed the "Ark House," which is set into Montana's Western mountains. This home is designed to mesh seamlessly with its surroundings, 100 acres of preserved land overlooking Beaver Head National Forest with remarkable views of the Big Sky Mountain. Ark House is a long, barn-like structure bisected by an impressive, sixty-foot, 4,800 square-foot cantilevered observation deck fabricated from Corten steel and glass. The uppermost level holds the kitchen, dining and living areas, while three bedrooms reside on the ground floor. At one end of the envelope-like structure lies breathtaking mountain views, while the other overlooks the atrium's lily pond. This home uses nearly zero energy thanks to its high-performance design and geothermal heating and cooling systems. A model of sustainability, the Ark House makes a seamless transition between the home and the land. (via Dezeen).
