Totally dig the idea of having nearly a gallery’s worth of black and white photos to spice up the bathroom experience.

Black is too often associated with me. Even my bosses made a bet that my Santa hat would be black (the worst part: they were right). Sure, most of my clothes and belongings are black, but it’s not like I like the color itself that much, it’s just that things that are black… look a little more nice. More chic. More serious. And, hell, it matches with everything.

Architecture is about the only thing I haven’t considered applying black to. But recently I’m coming across more and more architectural projects that benefit from black. A few favorites:

Otake House in Japan by Suppose Design Office:

The Centrum Miuzek in Utrecht, Netherlands by Architecten van Mourik built out of recycled plastic planks:

The Urban Diva House by Pasel Kuenzel Architects:

This funky Japanese residence in Saijo by Suppose Design Office:

The Sinus house in Denmark be Cebra Architects:

And even this Victorian home in San Francisco:

Anyone who has been around me for even only 10 min in the last few weeks knows that I’ve been all about the Rubik’s cube.

Strangely enough, it has re-kindled my infatuation with the shape. Here are a few architecture projects that take advantage of the cube’s beauty.

In Bilzen, Belgium, this residence is designed by El Bassam Okeily:

In Venice, CA. Designed by Lorcan O’Herlily:

Richard Meier’s Cube House in New York:

Polish-based Kameleon Lab Architects:

In Kanagawa, Japan by Shinichi Ogawa & Associates:

In Rotterdam, Netherlands by architect Piet Blom:

In Antwerp, Belgium (where I want to live someday) by Sculp(IT):

And my favorite in Kanousan, Japan by Yuusuke Karasawa Architects:
