Nicole is working first hand with the concrete crew to ensure that the job is completed correctly. They had her lay some of the cement through this tube connected to the giant cement truck outside.

For many, a mega-mansion represents the ideal dream home, but for Mike and Shawn McConkey, a shipping container was their ideal. The McConkey Residence, designed by OBR Architecture, is one of San Diego’s first shipping container homes. Three containers form 800 square feet of living space, and floor-to-ceiling windows make the open-air design feel even larger. A retractable garage door next to the kitchen is another thoughtful element (and perfect for those times when the stove gets a bit too smoky). Speaking of smoke, the windows and roof incorporate flame-retardant materials in the event of wildfires.
This may look like an elegant library in a private club or grand Newport mansion, but it’s actually an addition to a one-story, Mediterranean-style home in a small California town, added on where other people might have built a garage or game room. Patterned after a library in an Austrian monastery, the room was built to hold the homeowner’s thousands of volumes, as well as emphasize family commitment to literature and education, creating a reading respite and escape from a high-tech, digital world.
London's 5-star mansion-hotel Milestone Hotel & Residences located across from Kensington Gardens, serves up a holiday-perfect Spiced Coco featuring cognac, Disaronna, a spoonful of cocoa power, double espresso and a topping of double cream.

As seen on DIY Network's Rehab Addict, Nicole Curtis brightened up the living room of the Summit Avenue mansion by using a lighter stain on the floor and a neutral color palette throughout. The neutral shade of the walls helps showcase the mahogany woodwork, and the white silk curtains add a touch of elegance. Nicole used a mix of modern and vintage pieces to stage the room, and she replaced the 1970s wall sconces with period appropriate versions.

You would expect a lot from the master suite closet of a $35 million dollar Beverly Hills home, and you’d get it here. More spacious than some people’s entire apartments, this closet features a flat-screen TV, a fireplace, bathroom fixtures, a small refrigerator and a grand leather chaise. An overhead skylight lets in natural lighting, while recessed lighting and a modern, crystal-draped chandelier provide illumination at night. Light wood floors and dark wood shelving give the feeling of a luxurious retail showroom rather than a closet, befitting this 15,500-square-foot mansion just a stone's throw from the luxurious Beverly Hills Hotel. Shelly and Avi Osadon, the husband and wife duo behind SEE Materials and SEE Construction, created the home.
Part of the Savannah College of Art and Design's revitalization of downtown Savannah began with the school's founding in 1978 under the direction of president Paula Wallace (learn more about SCAD's history and Wallace's role in founding the arts college at SCADstory, the new interactive exhibition that debuted in spring 2019) has been reclaiming historic buildings. The meticulously restored 1888 Victorian mansion in the Queen Ann style Smithfield Cottage in downtown Savannah is a guest house for SCAD guests (Salma Hayek and Derek Lam have stopped in while in town), and is a billboard for SCAD's creative side. The home is filled with artwork by SCAD alums and Paula Wallace's designer husband and SCAD grad Glenn Wallace has integrated Asian elements and historic touches at Smithfield to create a sublime blend of the contemporary and the timeless in this beautiful home.
