We both love MCM and spent two years designing and building our dream home from a blank piece of paper. It turned out to be everything we imagined. Every room but one bedroom in the house opens with glass walls to either the lanai or enclosed courtyard. The house is linear, as are all the lines inside. Minimalism does not have to mean cold and sterile. Quite the contrary. Our accent colors throughout are shades of orange and parakeet green. We used modern MCM takes on the furniture, with some surprises thrown in to keep it from being the expected. Bleached eucalyptus floors, floating bamboo cabinetry. Minimalist, but only relatively uncluttered. You need to inject yourself into the design.

In picture #2, who did the art and what is it called? (When I clicked on the tag, all I got was "here are similar items".)

Also, Linda.Linda2, I love the art in your posted photo. Who did it and what is it called?
