We have explored the inspiring timeless design of Jeffrey Dungan before. Yet every time I engage with images of this artist’s work or commentary from his book, I discover fresh territory. Herein lies the beauty of timelessness. For it is indeed more spiral-like than linear, more fluid than static. Jeffrey Dungan Architecture: How Authenticity and Awe Create Timeless Soul is destined to evoke wonder with realms of natural beauty reverently in relationship with quality craftsmanship.
Jeffrey Dungan Architecture: How Authenticity and Awe Create Timeless Soul
One cannot help but feel reverence considering the devotion to natural materials (this artist appreciates the nobility of trees!) as well as thoughtful attention paid to light in Dungan’s creations.
Authenticity is also inherent in the architect’s projects and glimmers as a diamond resting in its natural habitat rather than perched in a setting.
Timeless Kitchen Design
To say I’m taken with the kitchen below is an understatement. Indeed it is having its way with my imagination in satisfyingly wonderful ways as great design always does!
Would you, could you spend endless hours with a friend, with a book, with a delicious meal in a space such as the nook below?
What happens when the same attention to architecture inside is applied outdoors? Magical moments such as these:
Architecture’s Interaction With Light
As I type this, the January light streaming through unadorned windows at home bids me to notice its beauty.
When timeless design, impeccable finishes, and masterful planning join with nature’s gifts and light, a house can become a work of interactive art to thrill and fill the senses through the seasons.
What makes a space handsome? Rugged materials like gorgeous wood are certainly a good start. In addition to standing the test of time, they also develop patina to become more beautiful!
The Wonder of Windows
As I consider a kitchen like the one below in a lake house, I’m struck by how we mostly live with functional kitchens lacking imagination.
While I’m not advocating second mortgages or going bankrupt…what if we began to more fully embrace the potential for beautiful LIVING in this space in which we spend so much time?
What if we gazed beyond runs of cabinet storage and more thoughtfully considered the quality of light? How might daily life be transformed?
