Yes, although if I had to identify a precondition, it is honesty of material expression. Because we generally derive no sense of beauty from the inherent qualities of plastic and other artificial materials we use to make architecture, people try to make them look like things they aren't in order to have their cake and eat it too. In some circumstances, an interior of artificial materials with limited lifespans could be enjoyable, so it's not exclusive to natural things entirely, but it nearly always is.

These are all from George Washington Smith homes that we are using as inspiration in our future pad. SH, any thoughts to the positive or negative?

Here's a couple just so you can get started:

Mid-Century-Modern-House2.jpg

Modern%20Interior%20Design%20Michael%20Mueller%20Design%20-011.jpg

Just four pulls from a quick search. Not saying I think any of these are incredible examples but they appeal to me and I would be happy to have any of them in my home.

If this isn't near me then there is an almost identical home that is. I went to an open house there a few years back and they served me champagne.

Pio, those are shit. Get them out of my thread. This thread is reserved for me and the generation of tyrannical aesthetes I hope to nurture.
