AP 1211 by Alan Chu

The AP 1211 is a pad in São Paulo, Brazil by Alan Chu that stacks textures and hip surfaces. Subway tiles shine in the midst of warm wooden cabinetry seamlessly set from the sink to the media center; meanwhile a spiral black staircase adds a kick of graphics to the scene. In the kitchen space cherry red accents are an unexpected twist to match the heavy duty phone on the living wall across the room. Upstairs a pine element against the stairway leads us into the loft without skipping a beat of fluid design. Although the space is tiny with a measly 388 square feet to work with, we are charmed and find the floor plan more than anyone could ask for.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
