Wary Meyers' Tossed & Found and A Brooklyn Pad

This is the 3rd post I've done on a design of husband and wife team
 Wary Meyers.  There is something raw about their eclectism that makes
the homes and pads they design look like a place that is very much so
lived in and not designed for just aesthetics alone.

This Brooklyn pad looks very much so lived in and features many found and
recycled objects which is something Wary Meyers' incorporates into all of
their designs.

Many of their designs incorporate midcentury modern
pieces which seems to be a favorite era for them. 

They are fun in that they do not neglect any part of a room.  Take
a look at the painting hanged under the eave of the staircase.

I love this painted Plexi glass back splash in this super mod bright yellow. 
I'm not a huge fan of yellow but I'm really finding that I really like this
particular hue.

Wary Meyers often like to use found objects including
this piece of salvaged wood that is used as a shelf.

The large words on the bunk bed add a bit of whimsy to the room.

Mixing it up with a textured wall.

What a fantastic focal point for the dining area.

The stenciled wall looks aged - just the right touch for the color and pattern
so it doesn't look to bright or stark to the eye.  The aged look softens it. 

I also found out that the husband and wife team recently
released a book September of 2009.  In the book they
show different ideas of how they use found objects to
refashion and repurpose them into really creative objects
for the home.  I highly recomend it.

Here's a sneak peak including this fantastic black and white dresser they
painted ebony.    By adhering white wooden words onto the dresser for
a 3-D effect, it really make the dresser into a dramatic piece where it
was otherwise a very mundane dresser.  Check the book out at Amazon.

Let me know what you guys think of Wary Meyers' style and don't
forget to check out the previous posts on their designs including
their own home.

I like the way the space is arranged and used. The modern and clean look is in the house. It's neat.

i'm lovin' the wall shelves and the nice white walls that enhance natural light.
i think i'd have a hard time sleeping with the sock monkey in the corner of watching over the bed. maybe that's just me but he'd kind of freak me out a bit.
the log as a shelf was a great creative touch.

I am obsessed with those hanging chairs!

Love the first photo. Oh, those hanging chairs look way too tempting. And then I look at the tile layout and the way things are arranged, creative yet practical. Plus another nice touch with the wall shelves.
