Color Comes Home: Hot Hues from Dwell

I’m a lover of great design and Dwell gives me a monthly dose of just that… and the February issue is covering a topic close to our hearts… Color. The new issue isn’t the only place Dwell is embracing new colors, they also recently overhauled their website:

Dwell was created to champion an intelligent, thoughtful, and modern sensibility that stimulates our audience to envision—and realize—life at home in the modern world.

The recent redesign gives the site a fresh look, fluid navigation, and flawlessly showcases Dwell’s award-winning editorial content and photography in a way that is distinctly Dwell. As a result, is better positioned than ever as THE leader for what’s news in modern design.

Color Comes Home: Hot Hues from Dwell

The Dwell Design Leader video series is an inside look at some of the most influential, inspirational, and innovative designers in the industry today. From landscape architect Andrea Cochran to prefab architect Michelle Kaufmann to co-housing expert Kathryn McCamant to Airstream designer Christopher Deam, a full spectrum of modern design disciplines are explored from a personal and professional perspective.
