In addition to October 31st being a day of costumes, trick or treating, and parties, it’s also the day that architect Zaha Hadid was born. Zaha Hadid was an Iraqi architect and the first woman to win the Pritzker Architecture Prize, receiving the award in 2004. She also received the Stirling Prize, the UK’s most esteemed architectural award, in 2010 and 2011, and was the first woman to win the RIBA Gold Medal. 

Hadid was born in Baghdad in 1950 to her father, a wealthy, liberal industrialist, and her mother, an artist. The upper-class family took many trips to ancient Sumerian cities during Hadid’s childhood, which she has said sparked her interest in architecture.

There’s nothing quite like the restorative power of nature, no matter how much new technology tries to convince us otherwise. Mother Nature is so powerful, in fact, that entire architectural styles were developed to harness and enhance it. From mid-century modern to contemporary and ranch homes, there are several architectural styles that were specifically created with nature in mind. 

Some of the first homes designed to maximize nature were mid-century modern houses. Early modernist architects like Richard Neutra and A. Quincy Jones saw the value of connecting the indoors with the outdoors, creating homes with expansive windows, wide-open floor plans, and organic materials that create harmony and connection with the surrounding

For most of us, there comes a time when we begin to trade late nights out at the bar for more chill nights in with friends over a delicious meal. But knowing that we prefer this kind of evening and executing it are two very different things. 

When you peruse Instagram, it’s easy to find beautiful tablescapes and dinner party decor that make it seem like everyone’s an expert on throwing a stylish night in, but the reality is that a lot of us barely even know what a tablescape is, let alone how to style one to perfection. Even if you do know how to style one, you also need all of the supplies to execute it, like matching dinnerware, centerpieces, and tablecloths, which many of us don’t have (or even want) at the ready.

But when you purchase items from Amazon’s Rivet line, you don’t need to make any justifications. The mid-century-inspired pieces it offers are just as affordable as they are sleek and stylish, offering items for much less than many other popular modern brands, like West Elm. And if you’re a Prime member, you can say goodbye to the hefty delivery fees that most brands tack on as well, as delivery is

Ranch-style homes came into popularity during the mid-20th-century, as postwar America sought practicality, functionality, and affordability in their homes’ designs. Prominent architects like Cliff May maximized the style, designing Ranch homes that optimize the flow and activities of daily living.
