Beam & Block House by Mode:lina Architekci

Crisp color blocks of charcoal and white against warm wooden grains energize the Beam & Block House located in Poznan, Poland. Lines are constructed at just a bit of an angle found in the built in bookcase, the kitchen island and a few choice walls. With an emphasis on storage and disguising the television, it took designers at Mode:lina Architekci some creative thinking that concluded with a dog cubby tucked under the staircase, a wonderfully large library shelves for books and records, and perfectly painted blocks of color to minimize eye sores.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
