Architect: Ehrlich Yanai Rhee Chaney Architects, Location: Santa Monica, California
From the architect: "He wanted a great yard, she wanted a great room. They both desired a home with a strong beating heart for themselves and their two teenage children. This modern family practices togetherness, not hanging out in separate rooms. The architects’ assignment was to design an appealing centralized habitat for all members of the household to use and enjoy."

Architect: Tim Cuppett Architects, Location: Austin, Texas
From the architect: "When midcentury enthusiasts purchased the original 1,800-square-foot home, it had long been forgotten about and was nearly reclaimed by the native vegetation of an adjacent creek. The existing house, crammed against the far property line, was dwarfed by an apartment complex visible to the rear. Low ceilings and deep overhangs made for a relentlessly dark interior, further diminishing what little appeal remained of the property. The existing house was gutted and reconfigured. In doing so, the cul-de-sac on which the home sits is partially restored to its midcentury roots."

Mugs are one of those things that tend to pile up in your cupboard. You get one from a gift shop at a National Park, another at a holiday gift exchange, another at a craft fair. Like your stuffed animals when you were a kid, you take turns using each one cuz you kinda feel bad for them. Until this one came along. This is the mug that you'll want to use every single day. Trust us. Live with others? Get a few. They'll want to use it, too. Photo Courtesy of East Fork
