Casa Brutale Cliffside Concept Home By OPA

1

Casa Brutale allows you to live on the edge! This visionary home would be perfect for a suave International spy, a super hero team or perhaps a cat stroking villain with hopes of world domination!

2 3 4

This concept property by OPA sits inside a cliff and is defined by three concrete walls that form the main living space. In order to let in plenty of light, the sea-facing front wall is all glass, as is the bottom of the roof-mounted swimming pool, creating undulating wave patterns as the sun shimmers through. If you want to build a house with a pool as the roof like this one then you should definitely line up an expert in roofing, waterproofing, and foundations like Staten Island Roofing. The house is accessed via a stairwell that runs from the top all the way to the glass-paneled balcony at the bottom, inviting guests to take in a little fresh air before entering the home.

My Office

Superman needs his Fortress of Solitude and Batman has the Bat Cave. We all need a favorite space to relax, reflect, write, read a book, watch a movie or showcase a favorite collectible or souvenir.

Maybe it’s a game room, library or secret space hidden by a moveable bookcase that leads to a man cave.

I’ve always been curious what curios J.J. Abrams keeps close by, what books fill Stephen King’s shelves, what collectibles does Patton Oswald possess, what artwork lines Jim Lee’s walls, how many toys fill John Lasseter’s Pixar office and what movie memorabilia does Steven Spielberg showcase? Perhaps someday I will find out!

The answers would reflect the owner’s personality, interests, accomplishments, etc. Equally as fascinating to me would be how the items were displayed.

So, I thought I would let you into my world and show you my office and give you the nickel tour.

I wanted my Southern California office to reflect my varied interests and showcase some of my favorite things.

I have collected Stephen King books since 1983. He’s my favorite author and I’m also a fan of his son, Joe Hill. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting both authors on numerous occasions and they are wonderful talented friendly people. The bottom shelf of my bookcase is filled with oversized art books featuring the work of Walt Disney, Jack Kirby, Jim Lee, Alex Ross, Todd McFarlane, Charles Schultz and Tim Burton.

My Funko Pop! Batman collection guards my graphic novels. Batman is my all-time favorite comic book character as reflected in the art, toys and books in my work space.

Some of my prized collectibles are an original Batman ink commission by Brazilian artist, Rafael Grampa (I also have his Batman Black & White statue), a signed Adam West Batman photo, a signed Drew Struzan Stephen King Dark Tower print and a series of Jock letterpress Batman prints signed by the artist.

A fun 3D light up replica of Iron Man’s mask appears to be bursting through my wall.

I also collect posters, many of which are from MONDO, a boutique art gallery based in Austin Texas. They release limited print runs of pop culture posters that are lovingly rendered by amazing artists. Some of my cherished prints are based on the Universal Monster movies by Francesco Francavilla, Star Wars by Tyler Stout and The Incredibles by Tom Whalen. Another favorite piece is my Batman Rogues Gallery print set by Olly Moss; With only a few simple brush strokes the UK artist cleverly captures the essence of the Joker, Poison Ivy and the Riddler.

The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller from 1986 is my favorite graphic novel so I had to pick up this statue of Batman vs. The Joker by Kotobukiya. I was a huge fan of both the original Batman TV show and the Batman Animated series so the 1966 Batmobile and the vinyl Animated Batman figure are prominently displayed.

Transforming Micro Apartment

The Transforming Micro Apartment makes the most of its meager 420 square feet by relying on a clever modular design.

Thanks to a sliding wall, hidden table, folding beds, and other neat tricks, this tiny New York apartment can sleep four comfortably, host a sit down dinner for ten, serve as two semi-separate offices, store bicycles, clothes, and more, all with a sleek, contemporary style that’d be the envy of many apartments multiple times its size.

Guillermo del Toro Gives A Guided Tour of His Home Offices Nicknamed Bleak House

1

As part of a special feature on Criterion’s Blu-ray and DVD editions of his film Cronos, director Guillermo del Toro leads a tour of his home offices, which he fondly dubs “Bleak House.”

Del Toro explains that the offices were created as a “compression chamber” so that he and his co-workers and collaborators could be “stimulated not just by what is called high art or fine art but by even the powerful images that come from toys or pop art or vivid imaginations. So everything in the house for me has equal importance, whether it’s a rubber toy or an anatomical model, whatever it is, it’s here to try to provoke a shock to the system, circulating the lifeblood of imagination, which I think is curiosity.”

His workspace is stuffed-to-the-gills with creepy figures and memorabilia!

Yankee Man Candles II

Yankee Man Candles II ($18-28) has added the scent of crispy fried pork with their new Mmm, Bacon candle and the aroma of buttered popcorn with Movie Night.

You can still purchase grassy Riding Mower, the leathery First Down, and the musky Man Town from the original series.

I have some suggestions for Man Candles series III: the delightful bouquet of Fenway Park urinals, the perfumed air that emanates from a  hockey equipment duffel bag and the lingering fragrance of sausage and pepper sandwich burps.
