When it comes to architecture and interior design, there are two things I love more than anything - Minimalism and Mid-Century Modern. The Merrydown By Mclaren Excell ($NFS) provide both of these in spades. The home was a former Victorian girl's school that was converted to a single story home in the 1950s.By dropping the floor and removing a false ceiling they created a home with a dramatic double height space with additional rooms at the first-floor level. The lower level is almost church-like with its upper level balcony.As you look around the home, you can see the expertly combined materials which include birch plywood, concrete, wood wool and brass. All of these materials are low cost, honest and hard wearing.The furniture is brilliant in its simplicity. Although mid-century furniture is very popular, I believe we will start to see even more if it used in minimalist style interiors. Making my point you can see the Hans Wegner style chairs we see throughout this home fit perfectly because .[gallery type="rectangular" ids="22648,22646,22645,22644,22643,22642,22641,22640,22639,22638,22637,22635"]
The Book of 'Unnecessary' Quotation Marks ($12) takes your from the suggestive to the sarcastic, and shows you quotation marks doing what we love them to do best; wreaking havoc on the English language. Who would have second thoughts about ordering that "hamburger" on the menu at the diner or wondering what the hidden price is for that item advertised as being "free"? From the creator of the hugely popular "Unnecessary" Quotation Marks "blog", this book surveys the havoc caused by those stupid quotation marks on menus, signs, posters, placards and leave reality suspended by those supposed "facts". This is a smarty-pants guide, made no mistake about that, and is perfect for those who habitually "air quote", grammar police or anyone who just wants a darned good laugh.
MKII is located right in my neck of the woods, off the mainline in scenic Wayne, Pa. The company was created by Bill Yao in 2001 and he hasn't looked back since. MKII specializes in custom and Swiss Made watches sold under the MKII brand. The MKII Nassau Diver Watch ($895+) is one of their most venerable diver watches. Based off of their hugely successful MKII Kingston it features a 39mm case, a matte black no date dial, and an iconic red triangle bezel inlay. It utilizes a high-grade Swiss made movement and Rhodium plated hands for high nighttime visibility. The crystal is a double domed sapphire with an anti-reflective coating on the interior. The Nassau comes with a black Nato band and for $50 more you can get a stainless steel band.[gallery royalslider="2" type="slideshow" ids="9676,9675,9674,9673,9672,9671"]
