The exterior of the model of Make it Right and Method Homes' low-income project The Euro Style Lighting team was lucky enough to attend the Dwell on Design 2015 conference this year.   Dwell on Design is hosted by Dwell magazine and has exhibitors from all over the world as well as numerous talks by industry experts.   There was so much to see and listen to, but what really caught our attention was the Make it Right and Method Homes' model home for their latest project in the Fort Peck Indian Reservation in Montana . Make it Right was founded in 2007 by Brad Pitt following the devastation of Hurrican Katrina.  Their work in New Orleans has led to innovations in affordable home building and they continue build homes and communities for people in need. Our team was so excited to learn that all their homes are LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum, the highest level LEED awards. A view of the open-plan design in the main living space The interior design for the home was done by Courtney Lake of Monogram Décor in San Francisco.  The budget was tight as the project is for low-income housing, so Lake went with vendors who make great looking products without high prices.  You would never know by looking at the furnishings that they don't carry a designer price tag! The design employs a spacious open plan living, dining and kitchen area. I love the terrariums in the glass vases that hang from the wall opposite the kitchen island. Just one of the examples of space-saving design solutions The homes will have multiple generations living under one roof, so the designer had to be very creative when designing the bedrooms. The above bedroom is designed to sleep three or four people.   In the above bedroom, the wall behind the loveseat is a murphy bed.  The love seat folds down when it's time to lower the bed.  On the left is a set of very cool bunk beds -- they also fold into the wall and have a panel that can be unfolded to act as a desk. The spacious master bedroom. Another murphy bed and love seat combination The third bedroom is also full of space-saving solutions.  Here you see a similar murphy bed/love seat combo like the one in the second bedroom.   Native American art was hung throughout the house. Make it Right believes that good design has the power to inspire and bring hope to communities and we whole-heartedly agree.   To learn more about Make it Right and this and past projects visit their site at .   You can see some of Method Homes' amazing pre-fab designs at their website at .   More of Courtney Lake of Monogram Decor's designs can be seen on his website .
