3 Concrete Lofts With Wide Open Floor Plans

Di, 16.08.2016 - 17:50

Concrete, an open floor plan, and lots of space define these three gorgeous spaces and they prove lofts don’t always have to be cold and dreary. The first home featured uses chalkboard paint to highlight the raw feel of the space. Large windows and piped lighting make loft number two the perfect combination of modern and contemporary. Lastly, the third loft is a 3D design and is darker than the others. This home has large circular lighting and leather furniture.

Visualizer: Denis Bespalov  

Visualized by Denis Bespalov, this loft uses sunny yellow to add a pop of color to the space. Concrete walls and floors are warmed up by natural wood cabinets in the kitchen and bookshelves.

The kitchen bar sits perfectly behind the yellow couch. This makes watching TV while grabbing breakfast an easy task. A design like this also designates different living zones in a large space.

Keeping things wide and open, the kitchen shelving is designed without cabinet doors. You can see the different items artfully displayed. The designer carefully made sure that there was pops of yellow mixed in. The back side of the cabinet is also painted black to match the rest of the loft.

Black painted walls can sometimes be too dramatic and dark. In this home, the homeowners have the luxury of chalk paint! This fun accent adds life to the dark walls while still looking industrial chic.

The white metal barstools lighten up the room and are perfect against the black walls. A yummy breakfast is ready to be enjoyed on this floating bar. In the background you can see the chalkboard being used.

A large window in the kitchen lets in lots of natural light. The light wood of the cabinets looks organic and matches the rest of the raw feel of the space. A few stainless steel accents are kept out for visual interest.

Pretty jars filled with cooking ingredients make this loft feel like a home instead of a warehouse.

To not break up the darkness of the walls the outlets have been painted completely. This makes them hard to notice and does’t interrupt the design.

Visualizer: Landusheva Nastia  

This loft is a bachelor’s best friend. White walls marry wooden floors and concrete ceilings.

One of the most one-of-a-kind accents in this loft is the tubular light fixture above the table and chairs. Blending in, yet standing out, this light works well in this space.

A sunroom off the kitchen welcomes natural light but stays within the same color scheme as the rest of the home. By not closing this space off, more light can flood the large living area.

The kitchen island works in contrast with the rest of the cabinets. The cooktop is modern and the industrial exhaust makes a statement in the home. Gray oversized window treatments make the loft feel more lived-in.

From this angle in the kitchen looking toward the dining space and living room, the exhaust lines up with the TV. This makes a play on lines and visually brings the room together in an interesting way.

A textured backsplash in this loft breaks up the monotony of the wood grain cabinets. The under mount lighting makes it even more noticeable.

Visualizer: Nina Zaitseva  

This dramatic home has special accents that make it custom for the homeowners. Instead of using traditional sized brick for the exposed walls, the brick is elongated. This adds an interesting texture to the living room.

Round hanging lights give the dark loft an circular element. This shape is then repeated in the mounted clock on the wall. Each wall is adorned differently.

The rounded light fixture resembles a candelabra.Of course, the light can now be turned on with a flip of a switch. No need to light each “candle.”

The wooden table is a natural element invited into this otherwise industrial loft. The table is simple, yet contemporary. Gray upholstered chairs and a candle centerpiece bring it together.

Different seating options help define the different living areas in this open loft. The couches are where the living space can be, the dining table sets the dining space apart, and the kitchen island lets you know you’re now entering the space to prepare food.

The lights reflecting off of the hanging chandeliers draw your eyes upward. The reflection of the light on the concrete adds more texture to the room.

The kitchen is well appointed with lots of cabinet space and counter space. Instead of being bare, the designer left out three jars filled with food ingredients. This makes the space feel more inviting.

Candelabras are an interesting idea in this space. This lighting reflects an older time and then contrasts with the modernity of the reclaimed loft space.

One of our favorite rooms in all 3 lofts, this bedroom is the perfect blend of masculine and feminine. The chandeliers are light and elegant while the elongated exposed brick feels more rustic.

A soft love seat is placed at the end of the bed for additional seating. The TV is builtin while closet space surrounds it.

Scanning out a little further in this image, you can see there is a painting added to the right wall. This breaks up the brick design and adds more shape to the room.

The entryway to this home is simple, but overstated. You can see that the table is illuminated with multiple black pendents. This greets guests and lets them know that this space is different.

The floor plan of home three is a great way to get a feel for the space. There are two bedrooms, one bathroom, and a large entryway.

3 Modern Style Apartments Under 50 Square Meters (Includes Floor Plans)

Mo, 15.08.2016 - 18:59

Did you ever think that an apartment of tiny size can’t pack a big style punch? Well, you’re wrong. These three are all under 50 square meters but are stylish and thoughtfully designed. There are many different ways to make a small space feel larger. To begin, you may want to have a space have multiple uses. An example would be a wall which can hold a T.V. and hold a desk for an office. You can also use vertical storage instead of laying everything on the ground. After moving around furniture and looking at layouts, you’ll be ready to make a small space look massive!

Visualizer: The Goort  

This bright and tiny apartment is located in Kyiv, Ukraine. Visualized by The Goort, this home is only 48 square meters.

This is one of the simplest ways to enjoy this multi-use room. The wall in the back, where the couch faces, has white storage closets and teal bookcases. It looks sleek and simple in this photo.

The designer makes the most of the space by having it serve different purposes. Here, a screen comes down from the ceiling. Movies and games can be projected onto this screen. Once you’re done using it, put it away to save space!

If you’re not watching TV or enjoying the simplicity of the space you can move the closet to reveal an in-home office! The teal blue background compliments the yellow accents and makes the surprise more stylish! The yellow side chair can be moved to be an office chair in seconds.

A peek around the corner of this tiny apartment reveals a cute kitchen. The teal backsplash matches the inside of the living room office. The small dinette chairs also match.

Tall ceilings in this small apartment are highlighted by lighting behind the built-in headboard. The room feels bright and full of color, even though there is only one yellow throw and a blue chair. This is proof that sometimes less is more.

Surprisingly, the bathroom has brown as an accent. The toilet and tile behind it are white but the rest of the room has brown accents. This gives the space an open feel and doesn’t overdo the teal and yellow.

The original floor plan of this small home was awkward and didn’t flow well. When you walked in the front door you walked into a closed off hallway. The kitchen and living room were separated by the bedroom.

The revised floor plan made the most of the space. Now, when you walk into the home you are walking into the living room. This is open and makes the space feel bigger. The bedroom has more privacy being in one corner of the home instead of in the middle.

Another great aspect of having the bedroom on one side is that the balcony is central to the living room and can be accessed from the main living space and not just the bedroom. This is good for entertaining. By moving the bedroom, the kitchen looks larger too.

Visualizer: Maxim Nizovkin  

This apartment is much more moody and masculine than the first. Visualized by Maxim Nizovkin, this home is only 45 square meters!

Blacks, grays, and whites are the only colors you see when you look at this Moscow apartment. In contrast to the darkness and masculinity, there is a photograph of a woman on the wall as the centerpiece. Although it brings a womanly touch to the room, it, too, is black and white.

A wooden countertop with barstools adds more seating for the living room and also opens the space up. The countertop is the same wood as the desk, which brings some consistency to the space.

Even though the apartment is made up of straight lines and shadows, there are elongated tubular lights hanging from the ceiling. These lights hang at different heights and are unique to the room.

Limiting the amount of accents make the ones that are included have more authority in the small apartment. Sketch figurines and black candle holders are simple, yet elegant.

The fun texture below the mounted T.V. is showcased with lighting. This makes the items on display feel as if they are extra special. A white vase breaks up the darkness of the candle holders.

By matching the couch and chaise lounger, the designer makes the furniture appear to be attached visually. This keeps the room from looking cluttered.

A home office has everything needed to get work done. Facing the window, this space is one of the main “zones” in the small apartment. When not in use, the chair can be swiveled around to offer extra seating in front of the television.

A white entryway draws attention to the mounted black and white photographs. There is a photograph of a woman, that defines the space, and a supporting image of two men in helmets.

The kitchen is filled with lots of light thanks to the oversized windows. The black window outlines give a fun architectural tie-in to the black accents and dark gray cabinets of the apartment. A high gloss backsplash reflects the rest of the room.

Black barstools make room for lots of guests and also offers a place to sit and enjoy a meal. The appliances in this apartment are tiny, but sleek and built-in with the rest of the kitchen.

Interestingly enough the high gloss backsplash of the kitchen makes the space feel bigger. It doubles everything since it’s mirrored and gives the illusion of more counter space.

You wouldn’t know a bedroom was hiding behind this large white wall in this Moscow apartment. Left to the entryway, your attention is brought to the kitchen and living room. You don’t realize there’s space that’s hidden.

When the wall is pulled back there is a step up bedroom! The bed is placed in a platform, which makes the room seem larger. There are drawers built into the platform which is perfect for extra clothing.

Both the tubular lights and the wall texture are repeated in this room along with the living room. Another feminine art piece, this time a painting, is hung in this room to combat the dark masculinity. Gray bedding is perfect and matches the rest of the home.

In this image you can see how the owner can close off the bedroom or keep it open when guests come. Sliding panels reveal the additional space and create privacy.

This floor plan shows how you would walk into the space and not realize there is a bedroom to your left. The bedroom is hidden until the panels are pulled back. This puts the focus on the main living spaces.

Visualizer: b4 team  

A cozy space is created in this small apartment which is create for a young couple. A thick rug is accented with pillows and low-to-the-ground seating.

More nooks and crannies invite the homeowners to curl up with a good book. This window seat has coordinating pillows and a fun red reading light.

A gallery wall in a small space can be pulled off! These art prints are carefully hung behind a kitchen table and chairs. There’s a good mix of white, pastels, and wood grain to keep the gallery from feeling too heavy.

When decorating a small space, remember to add varying heights with art. These art pieces are varied and added on top of each other.

This bedroom has an accent wall behind the bed and a fun rug to anchor it all together. The ceilings appear larger because the bed is nearer to the floor and so are the other seating options. Built in shelving that raises to the ceiling exaggerates the height as well.

From the other angle of the kitchen table and chairs you can see into the kitchen. White cabinets hide clutter but a bamboo shelf holds most used items for accessibility.

Don’t be afraid to leave pretty dishes out! This adds personality to your home and helps it look lived in. The fun geometric mugs balance out the organic bamboo cutting boards perfectly.

When you’re in a small space sometimes there isn’t a lot of closet space. Even if that isn’t the case in this home, there is an entire extra wardrobe room! A large mirror lets the homeowner get ready quickly. Large baskets keep seasonal clothing organized and put away.

The bathroom in this home is peaceful. White tile and a woven trash basket make this space feel relaxed and serene. When you have a small space, sometimes it’s best to keep the bathroom simple.

This image allows you to see the entire home from above. You can see where the unique rooms, like the wardrobe and reading nook, fall. There isn’t really a living room, but more livng little corners.

You can tell by the floor plan that this tiny apartment is truly different than most. There is a lounge zone and you must walk through the wardrobe to get to the bedroom.

Tasteful Indoor Garden Inspiration In Two Open Layout Homes

Fr, 12.08.2016 - 19:12

Are you looking for houseplant inspiration that really stands out from the rest? These interior gardens just might inspire you to think even bigger. This pair of lovely modern homes uses indoor garden installations to draw the eye from anywhere in the room, a useful feature considering the scale of their spacious open layout interiors. Each home takes a different approach – the first features a freestanding bamboo garden, and the second adorns the wall with a vibrant vertical garden. Both techniques are easy to tweak to suit your needs, given a little DIY experience and a skilled green thumb.

Architect: KDVA Architects  

This interior in Moscow takes inspiration from the simple and balanced forms of traditional Japanese design. It boasts a 110 square meter layout, stretching its functionality with spare furniture and an open yet compartmentalized layout for a freer sense of movement. But the most striking feature just might be the carefully manicured bamboo garden occupying the junction near the main walking paths.

Bamboo is fast growing, hardy, and provides perhaps one of the easiest ways to create a miniature “forest” right in the home.

Outside of the vibrant green focal point, the rest of the interior sticks to a minimalist palette based on stone and sand. Natural textures keep things simple throughout.

Streamlined furniture and fixtures preserve the emphasis on pure space and form. This ultra-focused approach is challenging but worthwhile.

Basic metal framing serves as a coat rack at the entryway. There’s still plenty of space to add extra shelving or drawers if demand for storage increases.

The bedroom has a unique configuration with the mattress raised on an upholstered platform. It’s a comfortable place to sit and relax, enjoy the window view, or sprawl out with a book. Strong linear forms leave open space toward the ceiling – an uncomplicated view that won’t distract from sleep or concentration.

A unique volume houses the bathroom separate from the rest of the suite, looking almost like a passageway.

The tub’s position at the forefront of the bathroom space allows the resident to feel connected with the rest of the bedroom and even yields a sliver of the view through the window across the room.

Now let’s take a quick look at the children’s bedroom. This space breaks away from the neutrals and strict minimalism of the rest of the home and adopts a muted fuchsia to suit its young residents.

Offset beds help each sibling feel as if they have their own individual space.

A pair of workspaces overlooks the city below. Adjustable lamps, modular storage boxes, and delightful modern chairs make homework more comfortable.

Behind the bookshelf, a little furnished nook offers a somewhat private space to study or read.

While the rest of the home makes great use of light colors and simple surfaces, the bathrooms adopt a darker theme to create a relaxing atmosphere.

Just look at that distinctive shower fixture! It is reduced to its most basic components, drawing the eye like a bold yet minimalist sculpture.

Designer: Marta Gord   

This apartment was designed with a young family in mind. The open living room layout offers plenty of space for the two young children to roam and play, with natural elements and vivid colors to stimulate their senses. Inspiring typography and attractive modern decor keep the parents feeling happy and comfortable.

Two very different types of gardens spice up the interior. Behind the sofa, a variety of aquatic plants provides a comfortable habitat for the vibrant fish within.

This vertical garden serves as a stunning focal point near the television and is one of the first things guests see as they enter the home.

Decor represents all of the elements in turn: airy curtains, aquatic teal accents, grey stone tiles, faux fireplace, etc.

Functional storage solutions make it easier to keep the home tidy without going too far into the minimalism territory. Open shelves always add character.

The kitchen is a lovely open space decked out in textural grey cabinetry and playful tiles. Everything here is simple, smooth, and doesn’t detract from the decorative elements that benefit the living room as a whole.

Although the layout technically follows the principals of an open layout, smart dividers contribute toward effective compartmentalization.

Husk chairs (designed by Patricia Urquiola) further the geometric theme present throughout the living area.

Soft materials and subdued colors bring out the comfort of the bedroom. The headboard wall and bedframe are fully upholstered, and layered carpets give the feet a warm place to land first thing in the morning.

Patricia Urquiola’s popular Husk Chairs make a second appearance. They again tie into a geometric theme, this time with the chevron floors and rugs.

A private office area makes it easier for the parents to get stuff done while the kids spend time occupied elsewhere.

Glossy barely-translucent doors conceal the wardrobe for a neater appearance in the bedroom.

Finally, the very best part! This whimsical bedroom is incredible, almost like it comes straight from a storybook. Polka dots and magical pendant lights set the stage for imaginative play.

The younger child can feel right at home in the house-shaped bedframe, while the older child sleeps in the coveted spot facing toward the window.

Built-in features make this little study area just as useful as it is adorable. Cork boards, framed prints, organizers, calendars, and more. This bedroom has everything a growing child could want.

Modern Masterpiece in Bel-Air

Do, 11.08.2016 - 17:31

Chances are, most of us will only get to lay eyes on a home such as this through our computer screens. Designed by Paul McClean, this mansion has a stunning seven bedrooms and twelve bathrooms! Found in Bel-Air, California, you’ll soon see that the dramatic city view is one of this home’s best features. You can see the twinkling lights of the city in almost every room. Along with a spectacular view, it appears that each bedroom has access to the expansive patios. With such lovely weather in California, the windows can be slid open and guests can wander outside and inside of the space.

Wouldn’t you love sitting on one these black couches and drinking champagne while looking over the city? The owners of this home get to do just that every day of their lives! This home has sweeping views of the twinkly lights at night.

There is much drama to be had in this massive mansion on a mountain in California. The electric fireplace runs the length of the stone wall. Black furniture in two different spots are anchored by rugs.

Architect: Paul McClean  

A large home bar makes entertaining easy as cake in this Bel-Air home. The bar has stone countertops and black barstools. Blue under shelf lighting in the back makes it look ultra cool.

Even during the day (or early morning) the room looks fantastic. Black leather furniture is highlighted with throw pillows and a few blankets. Two side tables, closer to the bar, are made with twisted stacked books.

It’s easy to take a dip in this beautiful infinity pool. The city sky meets the water perfectly and it feels as if you might drop off the side. Illuminated blue, this pool is more like a club in Las Vegas than a personal residence.

In this home, the seating never ends. On top of the seating by the pool, there are gray couches and chairs to lounge on. Stainless steel accents make the home look rich. The sculpture beside the couch and the legs of the coffee tables coordinate to bring the outdoor living room together. Green decor balls on the table break up the darker hues.

When you have such a massive space it’s important to designate different zones. Zones can be anchored by rugs. You can tell by looking at this room that there are three seating areas. The first is by the fireplace, the second is on the black rug between the two chairs, and the third is at the barstools.

White sleek floors are kept sparkling to mimic the use of lighting throughout the home. On either side of this living space you can see oversized chandeliers that hang from the ceiling. These lights give the room symmetry and an air of elegance. The dramatic lighting created by the canned lights in the ceiling is multiplied by the reflection in the stone wall.

The use of books to add accents in this space is inspiring. The acrylic bookstand in this image keeps a magazine or book open to a certain page for viewing. This is fun to direct guests to or to keep your place when you’re reading leisurely. The teal book on the left also adds another hue to the dark space. Don’t forget the throw pillows! A hint of shimmer comes off the pillows and matches the rest of the room.

In a home as grand as this you would expect it to have all the bells and whistles. This home theater is perfect for relaxing in with friends and family The color scheme is different than the rest of the home and there are many tan shades used. Tiered theater seating faces the screen and two sculptural cherries sit playfully on the coffee table. Cozy blankets are thrown over the couches and are made available for relaxing with.

One of the few places within this home without a view of the city, this hallway speaks for itself. The white walls and white floor floods the space with reflected light from the three pendents. A steel railing and steel baseboards are cohesive.

Almost every bedroom at 864 Stradella has access to the pool and a breathtaking view. This bedroom has very little color. The white bedding is modern and the white throw pillows keep the view as the focal point. The simple bench at the bottom of the bed is also unfussy.

This purple bedroom has a little bit more going on than the last bedroom. Placed on a thick gray rug, the bed is filled with purple bedding and throw pillows. There are different seating options throughout the room and there is a large mirror, leaning on the wall, which multiplies the view. A favorite accent is the pendent light which hangs in the corner to the right of the bed.

One of the most colorful items used in this home as an accent is the painting hanging on this bedroom wall. The painting has brighter neon colors and features a man playing guitar. The colors from the painting are then carried throughout the room. The red from the art is then duplicated on the two pillows on the bed. Everything in the space is symmetrical except the two pieces of art. One is on the side wall and the other is right above the bed.

With a closer look at the painting you can tell that it really does define the room. Even the magnificent cityscape in the background fades in comparison to the art.

This hallway in 864 Stradella is made of glass. You can see completely through it and inside it. A sculpture sits dramatically inside on the left and a cream walkway leads you to the opening doors.

From this angle, you can see the home bar as well as the large wine collection from outside. An outdoor walkway is perfect for a late evening walk. Each side of the house is artfully lighted and this gives the home a cinematic feel. The wine wall is backlit with blue.

An elongated fire pit welcomes guests and can be seen from the different bedrooms in the home. From here you can see the use of different lighting to give each area of the home a different energy and feel. A large grass awaits bare feet from the pool and bedrooms.

Meant for entertaining guests, this home has plenty of spaces dedicated to having a good time. This billiards room is modern. There is a high pile rug under the pool table and contemporary art hanging on the walls. A lit-up piece of art depicts a downtown city, which could be the same city that the home overlooks.

What a clever way to display your hundreds of bottles of wine! This wine wall is illuminated with a blue light and can be seen through the home. It’s canned lights on all sides treat the bottles as if they were rare paintings in a museum. Now we just wonder how they get the bottles down when they’re ready for a glass!

Counter space is something that comes in abundance in this Bel-Air home. Marbled stone gives the room a classic look while stainless steel appliances keep it up-to-date. A hostess won’t have to miss a minute of talk since the kitchen overlooks the living room.

The landscaping around this home is pristine. Lighting is used to create excitement and expectations up the drive. Shrubs are cut alongside the wall and you can immediately see through to the sculpture in the entryway.

With a massive California home comes a massive car collection. These sports cars call this showcase garage home. Black tile is lit up with lots of canned lighting. Each car is expertly parked and maintained.

Instead of looking like a garage, this space looks like showroom. Each luxurious car is parked at an angle. Why is there a need for flatscreen TVs in a garage? We’re not sure, but it looks cool!

When approaching 864 Stradella you’ll have to go through this gate which is lit up. In the background you see parts of the home and can see the tall ceilings and windows of glass.

Another outdoor space in this home has white flooring that blends in with the inside of the home. There are sculptures in the garden that are lit up and meant to be enjoyed.

In this image, you can see the dining room table which has access to outside. Once outside in a courtyard the flooring seems to match that of inside. There is a flatscreen TV, a fire pit and a couch to relax on. Different spaces in the home are interconnected by their access to outside.

Beautiful Modern Minimalist Loft With A View

Mi, 10.08.2016 - 18:14

This beautiful home is located near Lviv, Ukraine. Designed by Marta Gord, there is a keen use of cozy gray hues used all throughout the home. Even though moody shades are embraced, the home feels light and airy. Lots of natural light fills the rooms and the tall ceilings make the space feel larger than it is. The use of line art on the walls in the different rooms also brings character to the home. Along with the gray, a light pink is used as an accent color. This breathtaking industrial loft with a view is the perfect place for a young family to grow.

Your eye immediately is drawn to the fun line art hanging on the wall in this loft-like living room.

You can see in this image that there is a hallway that overlooks the living room. By using a glass railing, the space seems more open and airy.

To add to the airy-ness of the space, a large sketch of flowers is placed on the left wall. This is then accented by white and silver pendents that are organically bended every which way.

When looking up, you can see that the wood of the ceiling and loft space is kept natural. This gives a raw feel to the space but also warms up the gray. A light pink is used to bring both the dining table and couch together. There are pink throw pillows on the couch and coordinating cushion pillows on the dining table chairs.

A view such as this brings green into the space and helps define the room. Large windows cover the walls and there’s a view of the outdoors along the entire side of the home.

The contrast of the orange fire and white brick is artistic and creative in this space. When you mix in the marble steps, all of the elements come together and create a one-of-a-kind aesthetic.

Anything other than a light, wispy sketch of flowers wouldn’t have worked in this loft living room. Without taking away from the outdoors, the black and white drawing is fun and unfinished. This speaks to the space since there are a lot of natural elements used, like the natural wood grain accents.

One of the other colors used in this home is light pink. This abstract art piece is perfect leaned up against a low-to-the-ground shelf. It adds height to the room and a contrast in color. The texture is also complimentary to the wood grain on the shelves.

A white entryway to this home hides coats and other accessories. The sleek steel handles work well with the rest of the room. As you look into the living room, you notice there’s a wooden coffee table that looks like it brings the outdoor view in.

Large custom gray shelves make organizing easy in this home office. Along with the built-in desk, there is a love seat where the home owner can mix up their seating. A few throw pillows and a throw helps the space feel informal.

On the other side of the room you can see another black and white floral sketch art piece hanging on the wall. This piece is related to the other art used in the living room. The art tells a story. Even though we know that flowers are bright and colorful, this piece is black and white. This tricks out mind into thinking of more colors, even though the space is gray. The green rug on the floor helps bring more life to the study.

This master bedroom is masculine and sculptural. Two large pendent lights illuminate the bed and make it feel like it’s more of a stage production. Lighting behind the wall adds even more drama to the room.

You can’t miss the expansive view while enjoying a meal or paying bills at this dining table. Fun pendents in organic shapes draw the eye upward and outward onto the rolling hills. Pink cushions connect this room in the industrial loft to the others.

A view of the open floor plan helps the reader know where things are located in the home. The living room, dining space, and kitchen are all within a few feet of one another. Each is connected to the cement-like beam which is in the middle of this image.

When designing a home, it’s always a good idea to think of things practically. Even though a T.V. doesn’t really fit into the theme of the house, the designer made the most of the large wall by adding a projector. The home owners can enjoy films on their large white wall from different zones on the first floor.

Not much hardware is used in this kitchen. Instead, each cabinet is opened without handles. This style choice adds to the sleekness of the home and affirms that there is a minimalistic style here.

This type of kitchen, using grays and marble, can easily become too cold and sterile. Instead of being boring and void of life, the designer added under-the-counter lighting. This warm glow under the bar makes all the difference.

Even the bathroom has some light pink accents! If you look closely, you’ll notice the toothbrush holder and kleenex holder are both pink. This small color addition connects the rest of the home and adds a fun twist on the gray.

A loft isn’t a loft unless it has a spacious bathroom with a soaking tub. This tub is deep and perfect for relaxing in. Details have been thought out, like the towel warmer hung on the wall above the tub and the ledge holding candles behind the toilet.

White, spa-like towels make this bathroom feel like a retreat. Two simple candles are lit on the ledge behind the toilet. You’ll also notice the cover for the toilet brush is – you guessed it – light pink. By using a color like this throughout the home, it seems calculated and interconnected.

Bold Decor In Small Spaces: 3 Homes Under 50 Square Meters

Mo, 08.08.2016 - 20:28

One of the safest ways to decorate a small space is to simplify everything – subtle patterns, light colors, limited decor, clean lines, etc. These techniques can indeed make a room appear larger and less cluttered, but guidelines like these might seem a little restrictive to all but the most dedicated minimalists. But there’s good news too! The three homes outlined in this post definitely fall on the smaller side (ranging between 30 to 50 square meters) but their bold decor themes feel larger than life. In fact, they break all those stodgy rules and end up even better for it.

Designer: ILYA Derkach  

Let’s start with an extra compact interior. This apartment occupies only 30 square meters – but the designer didn’t let the compact floor plan limit creativity even one bit. The living room opens with a pair of portraits that immediately draw the eye, setting the stage for the vivid color palette and strong geometric themes used throughout the home.

Despite the emphasis on color and texture, the white background really helps make this space work. The simple backdrop allows every creative element to stand out individually, rather than blending into a homogeneous theme.

It’s also fun to point out some of the ingenious layout techniques that keep the interior feeling open and spacious. This independent volume houses the bedroom on one side and a compact kitchen on the other.

Smart composition makes a huge impression without the need to fill a space with “stuff”. Everything in this compact dining arrangement uses lightweight forms and materials but proves visually substantial.

The pendants are from the Lampframe collection by Herr Mandel. Edison bulbs provide a soft diffused glow appropriate for a shadeless fixture like this one.

Smart storage solutions keep the kitchen looking tidy. A thin bar runs across the length and holds hanging spice shakers, a hanging storage rack, and could other accessories like hand towels or utensils too.

Galley kitchens without windows often run the risk of looking too dark. Here, glossy surfaces preserve what little sunlight the space does receive. Even the door joins in!

Laundry appliances hide behind an ordinary-looking cabinet door, blending right in with the rest of the kitchen.

The kitchen leads directly to the entryway where a closet awaits to organize shoes and coats. The other side of the closet has a small shelf with drawers to serve as a catchall of sorts.

On the other side of the hallway, a little table doubles as a dressing vanity and shoe rack. This arrangement makes it easy to freshen up before heading out the door.

Designer: ILYA Derkach  

Next up is a home that blends functionality and ornament – every object serves a purpose while similarly contributing to the overall aesthetic. The result is an interior style that mixes traditional design with industrial style, establishing a huge personality despite its limited floor plan.

Without much space for extraneous decoration, the open living room instead relies on texture. Exposed brick and weathered wood feel rustic compared to the urban vibe of the concrete.

Although the general layout of the interior is very linear, it’s interesting to note how the flooring lines up with the doorway rather than the primary walls. The diagonal flow instills an irresistible sense of motion.

This chair is an iconic piece of late midcentury design created by Arne Jacobsen in 1958. The cage lights are a modern interpretation of a classic utilitarian style, perfect for this mixed-era home.

Overall, the living room feels like home. It’s adaptable and warm, purposeful and light, and uses its straightforward layout to its fullest potential.

The bedroom features a bit of variation. It maintains a similar style as the living space but emphases the rustic elements over the modern. Metal features and geometric decor don’t lose sight of the home’s underlying industrial theme.

Weathered wood and leather-toned textiles give the room a touch of downhome cottage appeal. Speaking of weathered wood, it’s one of the few high-end materials that takes well to nails – perfect for an art collector that likes to rearrange often.

These wall lamps are a wonderful example of industrial engineering converted to the design world. This style was designed by Jean-Louis Domecq to facilitate his mechanical work – the name Jieldé comes from his initials (JLD).


While the first home in this post used sleek modern design with a geometric twist and the second home combined rustic and industrial themes, this final apartment is the perfect combination of all four styles: modern, geometric, rustic, and industrial. The combination of materials used here are incredible, at once raw and luxurious.

Natural wood, concrete, and neutral textiles define the living room. Geometric lighting serves as a large statement piece without feeling overwhelming.

At just 33 square meters, this home contains several unique layout solutions. This cabinet makes room for laundry right in the living room – the washer and dryer are stacked behind the brown panel with a wardrobe behind the striped one.

The kitchen is tucked away into a small alcove. It doesn’t have the benefit of natural light but seems to embrace its situation with dark materials.

Wires span one of the kitchen walls, serving as a convenient place to hang hand towels and even extra chairs.

Geometric tiles like these add a real sense of depth to the backsplash.

Although the kitchen has plenty of storage, there are a few more cabinets just outside.

The bedroom ramps up the classic appeal with uniquely grained wood and a leather headboard. Decor remains simple for the most part, but those pendant lights and empty frame combination would make an incredible DIY project.

Headboard walls are a great candidate for bold design, but many designers leave the opposite side of the room simple for good reason – fewer visual distractions makes it easier to wind down before bed.

Small Homes That Use Lofts To Gain More Floor Space

Do, 04.08.2016 - 17:00

The sky is the limit when tall ceilings meet compact floor plans. The homes featured in this post sacrificed some of their impressive height for the sake of gaining more usable square footage – and the results are pretty fun to admire. Many of these interiors take the traditional approach by placing a bedroom in the lofted area, but others break the mold by using their newfound second floor for other purposes like a home office or library. While loft living isn’t a great solution for the stair-weary, it’s still a neat option for people who want to put their extra vertical space to work.

Designer: ILYA Derkach  

Designed to mimic the freedom and playfulness of a treehouse, this interior makes great use of its impressive 4-meter-tall ceilings. A comfortable bedroom occupies the loft space, leaving plenty of room for functional areas like the kitchen and hallway beneath. The staircase is compact but just the right depth to contain useful storage cabinets.

The living room enjoys the full atrium-like effect of the apartment. Tall windows brighten the interior upstairs and down. Accent colors tend toward the darker side of the spectrum, but the ample natural light makes it work beautifully.

Between the windows remains a strip of wall just wide enough for a tiny dining table and television. Not an inch of space is wasted.

Just check out this smart layout! A cabinet in the hallway hides the laundry space, just around the corner from the bathroom. The kitchen is small but contains all the necessities – the white surfaces banish shadows that might feel oppressive as part of the living room.

Upstairs decor remains much more casual and homey. It’s clearly a space to relax, reflect, and decompress at the end of the day. The head of the bed aligns perfectly with the window to allow a view of the outdoors.

The position of the loft bedroom provides plenty of privacy on its own, but the shuttered doors surely help to diffuse a bit of the noise and light without disrupting airflow – convenient when guests are crashing on the sofa downstairs.

Of course, when you’re dealing with a room this tall, pendant lamps can make all the difference. These pendants from Sandra Lindner feature beautiful copper accents toward the top, so they look just as gorgeous from above as they do from below.

Designer: Whiteline Design Studio   

Unlike most living spaces that include a loft, this one is part of a freestanding home rather than an apartment – a beautiful example of the “tiny house movement”. Downsized living spaces are praised as a way to minimize, clarify, and eliminate some of the complexities of modern life. This home accomplishes all of this without sacrificing an ounce of style.

The layout is heavily linear, transitioning from the living room to the kitchen and finally leading to the entrance. A wooden ladder leads up to the lofted bedroom.

While the living room enjoys the full height of the building, the dining room and kitchen occupy a cozier spot beneath the loft. Modern pendant lights hang low to the table to create a more intimate atmosphere.

Contrast plays a key role. Many of the cabinets remain dark to prevent the appearance of crowding and to hide the shadows within the open shelving above – sometimes using dark colors can make the rest of the interior feel brighter.

The bedroom feels wonderfully cozy beneath its black vaulted ceiling. One group of cushions serves as the bed, and the other pulls double duty as seating or a guest bed.

Visualizer: Andrew Chiniakov  

This space is part of an interesting mobile housing project titled WoodBox3x6, where every square meter of the ultra-compact interior realizes its full functionality and purpose. A realized version of this concept would include solar panels and wind generators, passive water collection, and other environmentally friendly features.

Although this home is packed with interesting features, the loft solutions are worth admiring. This home actually features two lofts – the library, featured here, is accessible from an extremely streamlined staircase.

A wider staircase provides a more comfortable route to the lofted bedroom. Storage cubbies, a full-size closet, and a small kitchenette all take advantage of the extra space.

Visualizer: Big nose   

Dramatic panels give this loft interior a very cohesive aesthetic from top to bottom. It’s natural, warm, and has a distinctive vintage undertone that really brings out the best of its modern side. An ultra-functional furniture arrangement ensures that the residents are able to work and play without obstruction – just as if it were a conventional apartment.

Natural materials and low-profile furniture keep the interior feeling light and casual – a versatile aesthetic for a compact home where formality might feel too restrictive.

In an interior otherwise dominated by warm tones, the blue portion of the sectional draws the eye with temperature contrast.

Without room for a guest bed, a spacious sofa like this one pays for itself. Sofas with armrests are more comfortable for day-to-day lounging but this one combines the best of both worlds.

The wires in the foreground support the staircase. The form is industrial but the brass-colored coating lends a touch of luxury.

Omitting the staircase risers allows sunlight to penetrate deep into the home. There’s no obstruction, no shadows.

And, even though there’s not much room for other objects beneath the stairs, this bicycle has found quite a nice home there. Other residents might use this space for a sideboard cabinet or small desk.

Here’s a view of the tiny office on the loft level. Although there isn’t a clear shot of the bed, this little area is inspiring too.

Visualizer: Lai Yanan   

This interior uses dynamic angles to instill a sense of movement and energy, overcoming one of the major boundaries that a carefully tailored compact home usually faces. A variety of planes not only disperses the concentration of decor for a better sense of balance but it also increases the perceived height of the already impressive ceiling.

The master bedroom actually occupies the main floor of the building while an office enjoys the loft – an unconventional but very effective choice.

Guests can dine or sleep on the wide bench seats that surround the dining table. Skip to the end of this section for a better idea of the multipurpose nature of each space.

The bathroom countertop lifts to provide access the tub, and a wooden platform lowers to cover it.

This visualization details just a few of the hidden platforms scattered throughout the home.

Visualizer: Jarek Banas  

Although more difficult to accomplish from an architectural standpoint, “floating” lofts are visually powerful. This interior places the staircase against the wall and suspends the bedroom above the living area as its own little island. Glass bannisters preserve the line of sight without compromising on safety – a very light look.

The low-profile bed allows for a clean line of sight in all directions, to the double-height window in the atrium to the unique balcony to the left.

Visualizer: Dian Maulidi  

And finally, here’s a look at a space efficient interior with the decorative appeal of a truly luxurious home. The sophisticated palette of high-end materials could make residents forget they’re in a compact home. This layout would work wonderfully as a guest suite within a larger residence, using the same amount of space that others might dedicate to a home theater or ordinary guest bedroom.

Visualizer: Vladimir Bolotkin  

One of the best parts of having an attic bedroom is that you can use as much creativity as you’d like! This bedroom has a teal wall and lots of industrial lights hanging above the bed.

Visualizer: Bartosz Domiczek & Szymon Tworz

Canned lights can be moved to fit the owners needs at the top of the room. Closets are kept white and closed to hide contents while the bookshelves are open and show off a fun collection of books!

Visualizer: Nikolay Yarin

Everything above the bed in this attic bedroom is white and simple. Once you get to the bed-level you’ll see a gray block design and wooden shelves. A purple rug brings a little bit of color to the room and the repetition of the block design is mimicked in the built-in storage closets on the left.

Visualizer: Casa Della  

Wood walls don’t make this bedroom look dark because they are lit up by the large angular window. The white platform bed contrasts well with the wooden accents and matches the modern floor rug. A quaint desk is tucked away in the corner, which makes this attic feel feminine and delicate.

Visualizer: Lev Kononov  

Every single thing in this attic is a light wood grain. the only things that aren’t are the bedding, which is neutral, and the lamp shade. The result? A room that feels as if it is blending effortlessly with the outdoors. The simple windows give glimpses of pine trees outside and the rest of the room seems to have been designed around them.

Moody and dramatic, this master suite in the attic is a penthouse of sorts. The walls are white near the windows but the ceiling is a dark wood. If you look further into the room, you can see the bathroom is hidden behind the black closets. The freestanding stainless steel tub is private, thanks to the wall, but also benefits from the natural light. A red lamp adds a striking color contrast.

Although this is an attic bedroom, there are stairs that lead to another space in the home…upward! The chalkboard-like black accent wall behind the bed offers some diversity among the white accents. The “Y” shaped beams make the room look architecturally interesting. Lastly, the strange looking brown chair gives the room a whimsical and historic feel.

Visualizer: Tuisuz  

With the curtains closed, you can tell the main point of focus in this bedroom is not the windows. The cushion-like base of the bed seems to be the focal point. White wooden beams cross across the top of the room and an intricate rug holds everything together. Visualizer Tuisuz embraces gray and makes it look layered in this room.

Feminine and airy, this attic bedroom plays on the colors fuchsia and purple. The closet is white and the walls are white. The only colored accents are painted on the built-in shelves, used on the headboard, and bedding. A metal lamp reflects the other colors and shines on the angled wall.

Designer: Up Interiors  

Bright and white, the only thing holding this attic bedroom down is the dark hues of the bed and the chair. The ceiling comes together like the shape of a barn and the windows melt into the walls with their white shade. A small window ledge showcases art, books, and natural colored items. The few furniture pieces that are in the room are streamlined and dramatic. The light, bed, chair, and wooden side table are kept near-to-the-ground to contrast with the tall ceilings.

This room is much more than just a place to sleep. As you can see, there is a space to work and a couch for entertaining. Although this room is perfect for a teen to escape to, the design is sophisticated enough for an adult. Beams cross through the space and the exposed brick make it full of character. Lighting above the window on the bookshelf adds a modern twist. Another cool aspect is the mural painted near the bed.

Sometimes an attic isn’t too easy to renovate. That doesn’t mean it can’t be a cool outside space. This attic doesn’t appear to be used for all seasons but is used as a hang out when the weather is nice. Cone shaped, the windows are cut out of this room at random and art is hung in-between the rafters. This space reminds one of the room in The Little Princess, only nicer.

Visualizer: Casa Bella  

An attic doesn’t have to lack unique lighting! The globe lights hanging from the ceiling give this attic an updated style. Two-toned wall paint also carries the trendy aesthetic. Again, the focus in this space isn’t necessarily the window, but the red couch and unique white beams on the ceiling.

This orange attic is bright and full of cheer! Window coverings match the furniture throughout the room and also allow for privacy. The art pieces incorporated feel Asian-inspired and add a different style layer to the room. The blue painting in the hallway works well with the other orange accents.

Look closely at the left of the windows and you’ll see a built-in that lights up a small bonsai tree. This accent clearly suggests to the viewer that this room is dedicated to being a zen space. The bed is made of the same wood as the floors and the inside of the windows. With bare colors and even less accents this attic bedroom is a place to think and meditate.

The beauty of designing an attic space is working with the interesting shape. In this attic, the designer embraced the shape of the ceiling and built in two twin beds and a window seat. By painting the panels, the eye is drawn to the unique architectural detail that inspired the built-ins. There’s also some hidden storage under the seats which is perfect for sleepovers and a kids room!

Colour-blocking: Creating room in small spaces

Fr, 29.07.2016 - 17:00

Small apartments offer a homely haven from the outside world – but also less space for decorative self-expression. Bedrooms, lounges, bathrooms and kitchens are not afforded the luxury of space to accentuate fixtures, features and panelling; it is here that crafty design innovations take centre stage. Clever colouring, supporting accents and mixed-purpose spaces are the hero in these apartments and hotels. Sleek storage spaces hide behind large art deco pieces to bestow breadth to limited room. These small spaces, located across Europe, show square metres are not required to inspire – but ingenuity and colour-blocking often is.

1 | Designer: Mariia Movchan This small apartment in Kiev is a perfect starter. Opening the door on a bold mustard wall, confetti wallpaper greets the eye on pale teak floors. A focal point of interest in two black hanging lights offers promises in the larger space beyond.

Walking past the confetti, the larger statement wall screams space, through the ability to hold a large block colour. Four paintings forming a block add an art deco feel, which is confirmed by the 70’s style mosaic tiles forming a ring around the kitchen.

2 | Designer: Mariia Movchan Teal tones tie together the kitchen and lounge spaces, which lie in more muted tones to let the mustard act the hero. White teak flooring adds neutrality, while the extended confetti wallpaper and black wall lighting add connecting detail.


From the other side of the hallway, large white cupboards act as a wall, but also provide space. A small teal seating space offers welcome to new visitors in a visually-appealing triptych layout.

3 | Designer: Mariia Movchan A minimalist bedroom offers a respite from the art deco theme, while subtly referring back to it. Muted teak floors with burnt orange and teak fixtures mark either side of the master bed, while boxed shelves in the same colour offer storage and a point of difference.

Creating the illusion of space with high-ceilinged sliding doors, the long white chiffon drapes let in light, while the study outside adds space to the room. The long wooden desks within the study make the most of an oblong space, with black wall light fixtures and block art continuing the lounge’s theme.

Minimalism in the bathroom is made original by the 70’s mosaic, a memorable tie from the kitchen. Spacious white surfaces are accentuated with mosaic inlets and facades, grounded by the wood panelling underneath the sink.

4 | Architect: Dermice Architects | Designer: Anna Fedyukina A hotel can have the same cosy feel, with a slightly-less personal touch. This concept for Coordinat student hotel in Turkey uses sunflower-shade colour-blocking with a similar shade of flowers to add flair to a background of white walls and light wood.

5 | Architect: Dermice Architects | Designer: Anna Fedyukina Links between the main reception area and bedrooms are defined by surrealist sketches, which hark back to the lives of the students residing within its walls.

6 | Architect: Dermice Architects | Designer: Anna Fedyukina Patterned carpets incorporating more muted hues of forest and charcoal support the transitions and offer a contrast to black and sunflower-hued highlights.

7 | Architect: Dermice Architects | Designer: Anna Fedyukina Grey slate walls in the bathroom offer a clean surface for the sunflower and forest hues to shine again, while the multi-coloured pattern continues through distinctive tiling. Inbuilt honeycomb detailing dilutes the impact of the main colour palette within the small space.

8 | Designer: Ivan Haiovych A similar modernist look in Rivne, Ukraine, has helped add spaciousness to a small apartment. Pale shades of light wood, light grey and darker grounding charcoal add detail without losing head space. Alternative levels of shelving in the bedroom and bathroom add a design focus while providing storage.

Through the kitchen and living spaces, patterned details are turned up a notch. Light wood panelling and charcoal-coloured benches ground the space, while stencilled lights and thin-wired stools provide a welcome pairing with abstract artwork and mosaic detailing, adding flavourful aspects to the main guest area.

9 | Designer: Ivan Yunakov A 49-metres-squared loft in Kiev by Ivan Yunakov ( also uses signature shades to create harmony in cosy spaces. High-ceilinged brick and panelled wood fixtures afford the height for long-lined doors, which are stretched horizontally by similar-shaped benches. A turquoise couch with electric blue suede single seats offer seats to look at bauble lighting, the only rounded fixture in the room.

10 | Designer: Ivan Yunakov To the right, white walls offer a respite for wardrobes and bookshelves, which offer drops of colour against its simplicity. A cast iron staircase holds a frame and lets the chair, bust and painting details do the talking.

11 | Designer: Ivan Yunakov The brick façade continues into the master bedroom, where warmer tones come into play. A beige cover with terracotta and fawn cushioning is a muted place to rest one’s head, beside a mosaic light that ties in the kitchen tiling and iron staircase.

3 White Themed Homes With Striking Modern Minimalist Aesthetics

Do, 28.07.2016 - 18:21

These three homes from M2 Architecture, Mihail Vasin, and Dorota Pilor essentially define the modern minimalistic style. Each home embraces the simplicity of white and build upon it with grays and other monochromatic hues. Even architectural elements like exposed brick and concrete are painted white to coordinate with the rest of the spaces. Impressive lighting accents, expansive master bathrooms, and open staircases all keep these spaces from being plain and too basic. As you read this article, learn how to re-create the modern minimalistic style in your own adobe.

Architect: M3 Architecture  

At this angle, you can see into the entire living space of this home designed by M3 Architecture. The white walls are broken up with the grey couch and taupe curtain dividers.

When the space opens up to the kitchen, you’re ready to host friends and family gatherings. This minimalistic design showcases the marble accents in the kitchen. The fire is one of the only accents that isn’t a neutral shade.

Appliances stacked together in even numbers adds a punch to the modern feel of the kitchen. Stainless steel accents the white and gives the entire home an industrial feel. Lofty and open, you can take a breath and not feel overwhelmed in this living room.

A grey couch that’s lower to the ground can be rearranged to your lifestyle. Having a movie night? Take the backs off of the couch and have everyone lounge on it as if it were a large bed! The floor-to-ceiling windows also give the space a wide-open feel.

Just because the colors in this home are simple, it doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with other accents. The balloon-like lamp adds a sense of whimsy. Keeping with the modern minimalistic aesthetic, the electrical outlets are kept simple and flush with the wall.

Lower shelving makes the ceilings look larger in a loft-like space. Instead of adding visually heavy chairs, this butterfly chair takes up less space and can be moved to different rooms.

When your entire home is white and black, any other color grabs your attention. Can you imagine how relaxed and worry-free you’ll be when enjoying a cup of hot tea in this impressive room?

In this kitchen, the only colors other than white are the gray chairs and fruit. This makes the room look extra large and fresh. The organic shapes hanging above the dining table is a welcome contrast from the straighter lines.

Don’t have fresh fruit to lay out on display? Don’t worry! Instead, invest in quality fake fruit and keep them out all the time. You’ll never have to worry about the fruit going old and guests will assume you just got home from the farmer’s market (until they try to take a bite)!

There is no need for a headboard if you are keeping things sleek in the bedroom. The large white walls behind the mattress make a statement on their own. White shades on the tall windows can be utilized at night and also match the rest of the home.

Marble bathrooms are timeless. This space feels like a spa. Unique lighting behind the mirror gives the space a more relaxed mood.

Keep soaps and toiletries to a minimum to keep with the modern aesthetic. A simple soap bottle that has a beautiful design will suffice. A rectangular sink matches the rest of the home’s square shapes.

One of the only organic forms in this home is the bathtub. Freestanding, this tub looks like it belongs in a magazine. A wooden shelf contains favorite bath salts, a book, or a glass of wine.

Visualizer: Mihail Vasin  

This next from is visualized by Mihail Vasin. Similar to the home by M3, this space embraces white and also has statement lighting accents. The large column in the middle of the room is broken up with black stripes.

A gray headboard in this master keeps the room from being too white. This then matches the chair and floor light. A gray rug anchors the whole design.

Think of all the clothing articles you could place in this massive closet! Hidden behind the flatscreen T.V, this closet would delight any fashion lover. The best part is that you can open the curtains to see in or keep it blocked off from the rest of the retreat.

Just because it’s a closet doesn’t mean it can’t serve more than one purpose! A black chair and desk offer the perfect place to flip through a magazine or write a quick email to a friend.

You won’t have to worry how you look with the lighted up standing mirror in the corner of this closet. White wooden floors keep the eye moving to the window, which is covered with flowy white material. Both the dark chair and ottomons give the room style.

Breathtaking Luxury Resort Villas In Bodrum, Turkey

Mi, 27.07.2016 - 17:00

The creatives at QUARK Studio have conceptualized an incredible resort development consisting of 72 villas, a hotel, and a number of luxury facilities. The development occupies a small peninsula overlooking the Aegean Sea, where playful boats dance across a backdrop of mist-enveloped hills and unbelievable sunsets weave an atmosphere of relaxation. A location like this deserves architecture that pays homage to every detail – and that’s where this project excels. This post explores the interior of a small selection of villas, just a taste of the finest views this resort concept has to offer.

Let’s start with one of the bigger standalone villas, a fine example of a building that embraces its environment without losing its own modern identity. A folded main volume feels impossibly light despite its concrete cladding, defying gravity thanks to the structural pillars that stud the glass-encased ground level.

The entire villa wraps itself around an existing rock formation, fully explored by the winding layout and internal glass walls.

Relaxing here is almost like being outdoors with every element fully integrated into the property’s aesthetic. A perimeter infinity pool even draws the clouds into the interior.

Shade is important in a Mediterranean climate like this one. The ceiling juts forward to cool the interior from one direction while the rock formations block direct sunlight from the other.

In regard to the luxuriously-appointed interior decor, every functional area embraces the landscape to the fullest – this casual social area enjoys a panoramic view.

Outdoor spaces were meticulously planned as well. This dining area has a definite “on the edge of the earth” vibe.

Valuable landscape features owe their preservation to the distinctive winding layout. Here, elevated stairs overlook a massive bounder below.

Of course, the bedrooms soak up the views as well. This one is surrounded on all sides by tall glass walls, with a freestanding headboard wall serving as the only exception.

Low-profile furniture stays out of the way. While the lower level felt literally “down to earth” thanks to the rock formations, these upper stories are all about the coastal skyline.

Behind the freestanding headboard wall, an open bathroom area transitions directly into a wardrobe. It’s easy to see how this arrangement could make morning preparation even easier.

Even more storage space occupies the rear side of the headboard wall. Even this private nook looks out onto the Aegean Sea.

This additional bedroom adopts many features from the previous space, but smaller and more compact. A pair of sinks makes use of the space on the opposite side of the headboard.

Greyscale furniture allows the sea to take center stage in this final bedroom of the first villa’s tour.

While the previous villa featured a very simplistic form, this one makes a big impact with sharp angles and unexpected curves. Each structure houses multiple units contained within offset L-shaped volumes, one volume slightly taller than the other.

Each half of the villa occupies a different plane, clearly split down the middle. The dividing wall actually continues through the yard to enhance privacy between each pool.

These structures are not quite as private as the standalone retreat featured earlier. Public areas face directly toward the path outside but private areas have the benefit of a more shielded angle and curtained walls.

Each interior uses a different decor theme, mostly tending toward neutral colors and tasteful modern furniture.

Furniture echoes the shape of the architecture. In this interior, the furniture adopts crisp angles and strong vertical lines.

This one utilizes rounded forms to bring out the distinctive curvature of the large glass window. Eames chairs, a Lindsey Adelman chandelier, and a plush overstuffed sofa all forward the theme.

Curvaceous balcony lounge chairs appear to look out onto eternity. Imagine enjoying a morning smoothie as the boats drift past!

From the balcony dining tables, it’s possible to watch the other resort guests as they go about their day. It’s surely an energizing scene.

Nothing beats spending time in a completely unrestricted interior (especially one with such a nice view) but sometimes privacy is preferred. Every room is outfitted with a curtain.

Although these bedrooms are more compact than the ones in the larger villa, they’re no less luxurious. Sleek stone surfaces feel cool on the eye and even seem to adopt some of the sea’s blue aura.

Near the window, a freestanding tub grants endless daydreams without necessitating a trip outside of the suite. The oversized mirror makes cleaning up for a night on the town even easier but also expands the perceived size of the room.

Here’s another take on the same design but without the pillar. Even the painting in the mirror has been inverted for darker appeal – both concepts look fabulous.

Unlike the first property featured in this post, these bedrooms don’t have the luxury of a panoramic view. Instead, the designers created visual interest with artwork in complement and contrast of the world outside.

Notice the difference in architecture. The previous room used straight lines whereas this room slightly angles toward its beautiful curved window.

Rather than a freestanding tub, the smaller rooms feature a glass-enclosed shower that still offers a little bit of a view through the window across the room.

The resort’s uniform layout doesn’t even begin to hint at the individualization and unique character of each villa it contains. This resort concept does luxury right.

2 Homes With Similar Hues

Di, 26.07.2016 - 17:54

What do white, cream, natural wood, and grey all have in common? They are all color hues included in these two homes from M3 Architectural & Construction Group and Mihail Vasin. In this article you can see both seem similar in their style. Breezy, airy, and open, you’ll want to lounge all day on the couch in the first home from M3. The large windows invite the sun in and make the space feel even bigger than it is! The second space from Mihail Vasin has punches of bright colors and a kids room that any child would love to call home. Learn how to incorporate a pop of contrasting color and add life to a neutral home.

Architect: M3 Architectural & Construction Group  

This neutral couch fits perfectly in this home designed by M3 Architectural & Construction Group. The side table is able to nest, which gives you extra space to place items.

Extra large windows allow natural light in which makes the room appear larger. A flatscreen T.V. mounted on the wall instead of sitting on a table creates more space.

Very high ceilings give the room a bigger feel. Unique lighting above the doorways also adds drama.

There’s no reason you can’t add living things even in a sleek space like this! Instead of going overboard, keep greens to one or two per room like in this image.

Even when embracing greys and whites you can add a pop of color for interest. The bottom of the side table is dipped in a orange color.

Woodwork throughout the home is painted white. This gives a sleek and modern feel.

With such neutral hues in this home, anything adds vibrancy against it. This breakfast beside the bed looks delicious.

No need for a headboard when you have custom built-ins. The white furniture piece in the back serves as a head board and a night stand.

Even though the room has plenty of natural light, added light at the top of the ceiling gives the room dimension. A large natural wood closet also allows clutter to be hidden.

Greenery adds a natural vibe to the room and gives some contrasting color. Keep with the theme and choose clear, airy glasses to place greens in.

Large curtains make the ceilings look even bigger! Take linens to the top of the ceiling instead of making them fit the window.

Keep with the natural feel of the space by placing bamboo cutting boards on display. Avoid too many items out on the counters to keep with the simple lines.

A master bath feels luxurious and clean when you utilize whites and grays.

Even though there are only two black items in this room, they make a statement! The black shower curtain and black tray which holds the toiletries are enough to add contrast to this bath.

This bathroom is designed so that ugly shampoo bottles and unnecessary bathroom items have a place to hide. The end result? A bathroom that looks clean 24/7.

The dining room is an extension of the kitchen. By keeping the counter top color the same as the table top, the space seems to go on and on.

Concrete isn’t too cold when you’re dealing with a space that embraces neutrals. Just a few pillars add an industrial feel.

Architect: Mihail Vasin  

The second home, which shares the same hues is designed by Mihali Vasin. It’s hard to tell the two living spaces apart unless you’re looking very closely!

Even though both homes share color hues, they also share design inspirations. In this home, the window treatments are raised to the ceiling like the first home by M3. This draws attention to the tall ceilings.

A media wall holding a flat screen T.V. is the perfect way to lay out a color scheme for a home. If you look closely, you’ll notice all the colors on this wall are carried out throughout the home.

Large built-in storage solutions customize the space and keep ugly clutter out of the way. The point is to enjoy the simplicity and airy-ness of the room.

Different pendents hanging in the kitchen and dining room give the space contrast. The colors are different on the countertops and table top, but the hues are all similar. A backsplash is perfect in this setting because it isn’t too visually busy.

Looking back into the living room, you’ll notice the same lights are mimicked in there as the kitchen. These warm up the white walls and neutral colors.

A child’s room can be modern while still being playful. This room embraces neutrals but also adds a bright bed and a statement wallpapered wall. The best part about only using a few colors to make the room stand out is the fact the space will mature with the child. As they get older, you can switch different things out, like the floral wallpaper.

A unique set of shelves make this child’s room the perfect place to play. Instead of keeping every bird house closed, two have open shelves. This gives the child a chance to display their favorite trophies, stuffed animals, and toys. The other closed closets can house clothing and other items.

Along with adding color through furniture, Vasin added color by adding a rug and ceiling decor. Even though the room is narrow, the designer added a bed that fits in the room while making it feel roomy.

It’s easy to forget the hallway when designing a space. In this “room,” Mihali Vasin choose to paint a wall a fun color. This is subtle enough not to overpower the home, but is bold enough to add character.

Who wouldn’t want to relax at the end of a long day in this master? Although it uses similar colors as the M3 space, it has a new color: orange! The orange chairs and pillow make this room stand out from the other. You can create this style too by using a neutral color palette then adding one bright color as an accent.

When in doubt, add mirrored accents! Above this bed is a blue painted wall. The color is carried out though the throw pillows. Another way to add a simple decor element is to create a free-form art piece with mirrors! The honeycomb shape is modern and still inviting.

There are a few design elements taken from the master bedroom into this bathroom. To begin, the teal on the wall connects the two aesthetically. Another way the bathroom is connected is through the honeycomb tile.

Although this master bath has teal walls, it is still similar in hue with the master bath in the design created by M3 Architectural & Construction Group. Natural wood, white, and silver hardware connect the two designs.

When looking at the room from this angle, you may not realize the teal accent wall behind you. From here, the space is simple and under-stated. If you turn around you get the unexpected punch of color. Hidden storage and the use of rectangular shapes bring this bathroom together with the one from M3.

A Beautiful 3 Bedroom 2 Bath House [With Floor Plan]

Mo, 25.07.2016 - 16:50

Sometimes when you have children it can be difficult to design a stylish home that’s accommodating. This beautiful three bedroom and two bathroom house doesn’t skimp on chic! Designed by Iryna Sotnikava from Minsk, Belarus, this home utilizes grays, whites, and yellows. After you look through these exciting images of the home, you’ll learn that you only need one bright accent color to bring excitement to a space. Why not make that color a vibrant yellow? From the living room with a yellow banana throw pillow, to the master bedroom which has a yellow painted closet door, you’ll find sunny surprises at the turn of every corner!

Throughout this gorgeous home the main colors used are gray, yellow, white, and black. Occasionally in the children’s rooms other colors will be utilized. In this photo, you can see the wall art in the kitchen. Potted plants hang in lines and give the space another color, green!

This living room is open to the kitchen and allows the whole family to be in one space. The more serious use of colors, like grey, and black, is lightened up by the yellow accents. The bright yellow armchair compliments the gray couch well. Also, the banana throw pillow adds even more charm!

The low-back couch makes it easy to see into the kitchen and keeps the space from feeling stuffy. The design of the couch allows for several people to be sitting or two sleeping on it. Using throw pillows which are a darker hue than the color of the couch adds depth to the space.

The built-in window seat is a fun way to get the kids involved in the home decor (or yourself!) Wooden bars allow you to climb to the top and cuddle up with your favorite book. It also adds extra seating if you’re planning a big event or movie night. Keeping the window seat the same as the couch in terms of color make the room cohesive.

There’s not a lot of fluff above the flat screen T.V. A simple art piece in black and white and a few trinkets laid out on the media console is all you need. When in doubt, think less is more.

How do you design around a yellow armchair? Very simply. This living room feels bright because the colors are balanced. Instead of using busy prints or colored artwork, the designer has chosen to embrace the monochromatic look. By limiting the artwork, the yellow armchair is able to steal the show.

There isn’t too much need for additional lighting during the day when you have stunning windows like in this living room! Make the most of them by covering them with large curtains. This light brown shade is the perfect way to keep out too much light. It doesn’t overpower the space like a colored curtain may.

Simple text artwork is a trend that isn’t going away any time soon! Use a black frame to house one of your favorite quotes or a family motto. This home takes a fun approach and has hung an art piece that says “Home is where your WIFI connects automatically.” Two small cushion ottomans add texture and extra space in the room.

Get rid of boring shelves! Instead, opt for a fun interpretation of a shelf. This ladder holds different accents and looks like it belongs in an art gallery. Keep items hidden that you need by the door in white storage boxes. It’s extra helpful if you label them for easy finding!

One of the coolest aspects of this home is the staircase. Wrapped in glass, you can see through it and it makes a statement. To play up its transparency in the design, a table with art can be seen behind it. When using art in a space like this, it’s important that it doesn’t compete with the architectural piece.

Three tiered pendents hanging from the ceiling illuminate the glass staircase. This makes the feature feel like it’s in a gallery and is lit up for viewers. The pendents are simple, but since they are grouped together they make more of an aesthetic impact.

The children’s rooms in this home coordinate with the overall color scheme of grays, whites, blacks, and yellows, but add a little bit more. Your eye immediately goes toward the bright yellow trunk which houses toys. Other items in the room that catch your attention are the multi-colored button rug. This gives the room a sense of whimsy.

Black isn’t too dark of a color in a kid’s room if you balance it with lighter shades. Above this black wall, which could be a chalkboard wall, is a fun gray plaid wallpaper. Since it’s only on one wall, it fits in perfectly and doesn’t make the space feel small.

With kids, every bit of storage helps. This room utilizes storage every inch you look. From under the bed to the built-in cabinets, there are plenty of places to hide art supplies and baby dolls. When using a brightly colored rug like this, you can use many more colors throughout the room as long as they match the rug.

There’s another yellow accent hidden in this child’s room! Once inside you may be pleasantly surprised to see a yellow painted door. This adds even more fun to the room and keeps it light.

Another child’s room appears to be for a pre-teen. This impactful constellation heart art brings a sense of fun. A black and white rug is lightened up by splashes of color.

A wall of closets keep all the loose articles of clothing hidden and organized. When white is taking up this much space in a room, any other color used will dominate. The light bounces off the closets and gives the room a bright and airy feel.

A fun bed allows this pre-teen the space underneath to hide her diary and socks. White shelves allow for storage while not looking too dark and dreary. The darkest accent in the room is the black pendent, which draws the eye to the unique wallpaper.

Just like the other child’s room, this older child’s room has used wallpaper to accent the walls. Above the built-in desk is a fun polka-dot paper. A black pendent stands out against the print and helps illuminate the desk for late-night reading. As with the rest of the home, the bedroom has a yellow accent, the chair!

Don’t be afraid of color! This shelving unit in the pre-teen room is filled with all different colors that make a rainbow. Try to keep like-shaped books together and arrange them to be varied in color. White boxes in the bottom of the shelf allow for some items to be hidden out of sight.

Hanging animal heads is all the rage right now. For a child’s room, instead of mounting a brightly colored deer head, add a panda bear instead! This panda, which may be made out of folded paper, adds a silly feel to the room. It works really well paired with other printed art pieces. Keep art simple and child-like. Even better, allow your little one to create their own art and frame it!

The master bedroom in this home is exactly as we expected it to be. Using the main colors throughout the home, this space is a refuge for relaxation and down-time. Instead of teetering on the edge of boring, this bedroom has added interesting accents, like the hanging spotlights, to keep it causal.

Another lofted window seat is added to the master bedroom. This can be accessed through the sliding glass doors. A space like this is perfect for star gazing or drinking your cup of coffee in the morning. Rounded hooks keep robes off the floor and also add color to the walls.

I bet you thought the only yellow accent in this room was the nightstand! Nope! From the other angle you can see the closet door is painted yellow! This is a fun way to brighten up the room without going overboard on color.

The walkway here is kept simple and sleek. The neutral elements work together to create a cohesive space that has clean lines.

The hanging matching lights above the bed can be moved to illuminate different parts of the room. These dark lights give the room a sculptural element. A black striped rug, pillows, a black headboard, and black alarm clock all make the room feel masculine.

With this convenient kitchen you can watch the kids and the T.V. while preparing dinner. The simple kitchen is open to the living room and the cabinets are low enough that you can see the T.V. perfectly.

White cabinets without hardware look sleek and modern in this home’s kitchen. The wood offsets the whit and the stainless steel sink faucet adds another shade to the mix.

The designer made sure to set out only accents that coordinate with the style and color theme. Different shaded wooden cutting boards look perfect beside a green plant.

The glass staircase in this home is surely one of it’s most impressive features. This view from the kitchen is inspiring. Two different colors on top of the stairs marry in the middle and still match the colors throughout the home perfectly.

This image shows into the entryway and the kitchen. You can see there is a bar running alongside under the window. Yellow barstools make the perfect color statement.

A white bathroom is anything but boring! The textures and finishes in this luxurious bathroom make it special. The tiled tub is deep enough for soaking.

A wooden shelf situated within the shower adds an architectural feature. You always have a place to put shampoo and the color breaks up the white of the room.

A long towel warmer blends into the wall because it is white. Once you jump out of the shower you can grab a perfectly warm towel and feel as if you’re in a spa.

The other bathroom in this home is smaller, but still just as trendy. The small sink is all you need when guests come over to freshen up. Under-the-shelf lighting makes this smaller space feel modern.

The first floor plan of the home highlights the staircase and openness of the kitchen and living room.

The second story floor plan shows that only one bathroom is used between the three bedrooms but there is plenty of space. A lofted window seat is added instead.

Dining Room Roundup: 30 Elegant Designs For Any Style

For many, the dining room serves as the very heart of the home – it’s where families gather to share the stories of the day, where old friends can make new memories, where doodles and work documents can stretch their legs. This post features 25 gorgeous dining rooms that remain simple without feeling minimalistic, using smart materials and furniture choices that underscore a sense of elegance without dominating the landscape. Each has a distinct personality despite the similarities, each catering to different tastes and space constraints. Which dining room design suits you best? Comment to let us know!

Let’s start with a light and wonderful dining room that balances Danish simplicity with luxurious undertones. The pendant lamp above the table (Vertigo by Constance Guisset) is the standout piece that makes a simple interior like this one so effective.

Marble makes a prominent statement in this dining room as well, its high-end appeal enhanced with designer brass lighting. The olive chairs are the work of Rodolfo Dordoni.

Modern and dark, this dining room goes big with dramatic appeal. The indirect lighting seems almost theatrical.


Another dark color theme takes a softer approach with matte materials. The chairs are from the Ventura collection (2011) by Jean-Mari Massaud.

Colorful! This dining room is a library for both books and music – allowing the residents to eat surrounded by the things they love. The creative floor tiles help bring the eclectic media-based interior together.

Geometry is the prevailing theme of this colorful space. Dandelion yellow sets a sunny theme, while the single teal vessel draws the eye as an understated but irresistible focal point.

Modern minimalism meets rustic charm. Wood furniture and tin cups underline the homey appeal, with concrete floors and crisp white walls acting as a sort of neutral gallery in which to appreciate the composition.

Hans Wegner’s famous Wishbone chairs reappear in this laidback dining room. The oversized Random Light by Bertjan Pot is another immediately recognizable piece.

An emphasis on low-profile furniture and horizontal lines ensures the gorgeous mountainous surroundings take center stage in this kitchen and dining combination.

This incredible garden view is everything. It informs not only the colors and materials used throughout the dining room, but also influences the structure of the table and chairs as well – the structural variation is natural, rebellious, and carefree. The table is the work of Jonathan Adler and the chairs are antiques.

Cute! Eclectic chairs unify the white, black, and wood color theme used throughout this cozy kitchen and dining combination. It’s interesting to see how the chair arrangement actually shifts the visual weight of the area, the warm wood on the right balancing the darker area near the breakfast bar to the left.

Octo pendants (by Secto Design) and classic Eames chairs could serve as a strong foundation for any dining room. It’s hard to go wrong with beloved selections like these.

Located beneath a dramatic vaulted ceiling, this kitchen and dining combination embraces its cozy circumstances with dark colors and rich texture.

Stone block walls can look monolithic and imposing at times. But here weighty materials actually draw out the lightness of the refined furniture and cabinetry selections.


Modernism and classical details meet within this subdued space, crowned by the elegant chandelier that sparkles above.

Maroon is an attractive complement to any greyscale theme – its subdued tone doesn’t pop out, but subtly bleeds warmth into the environment instead.

Textural variation allows this greyscale dining room to rise above its restricted color palette. The ultra-plush chairs are from the Serpentine collection by Eléonore Nalet and the lights are from the AIM series by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec.

Black chairs blend into the black accent wall at the far end of this open living space. The one thing that stands out are the distinctive profiles of three Beat pendant lights by Tom Dixon.

If a black-and-white color theme seems too spare for your tastes, but you still like the idea of adopting a modernist style, a cheerful dash of color is an easy way to make your interior truly your own.

Futuristic and luxurious, this dining room uses dramatic sweeping angles to guide the eye from each functional area to the next. Richly-veined marble and slate floors stick out as the few natural materials used within – their contribution to the aesthetic cannot be overlooked.

Visualizer: Perfect Design   

Here’s another interior where warm accents seem to affect even the deepest colors in the room.

Visualizer: Ilkin Gurbanov   

Daring color! Pistachio green isn’t a common choice for dining rooms but this interior shows that anything is possible with the right accent materials. Warm wood creates striking contrast, an evolution from its usual role where it dominates every flat surface.

Visualizer: Denis Melnik   

High contrast palettes can make an especially dramatic impression in a home with classical details like this one. Any shift in perspective will completely alter the effect of the white elements against their matte black background.

Visualizer: yanis lachat  

Industrial yet cheerful – tall concrete walls might otherwise feel imposing, but these spectacular yellow chairs lighten the mood and provide an irresistible focal point. Even within the urban interior, it’s hard not to think of floral themes with the combination of dandelion yellow chairs and the blooming chandelier above.

Visualizer: HDR Designer   

And finally, a simple white dining room colored only by the hues of nature: the warm legs of the molded chairs and the plants’ verdant foliage. A single Beat pendant ties into the black fittings scattered throughout.

A Modern Apartment With Classical Features

Mi, 20.07.2016 - 17:01

Located in the heart of Kiev, this modern apartment by YØ DEZEEN uses a strong contemporary interior design theme accented with classical ornamentation. This sense of contrast heightens the effect of both influences and helps to underscore the attractive greyscale contrast used throughout. Artwork, vivid accent colors, and intricate details bring this otherwise streamlined interior to life. It’s a luxurious home designed with a young family in mind, easy to adapt to changing tastes and space requirements – the designers knew more than just what it needed, but also considered what it may need to become.

The interior is spacious and open but makes good use of partial walls and hefty pillars to create a sense of division between functional spaces. Greyscale dominates the interior color theme, allowing the oxidized red accents to appear even richer. Intricate wall panel boiserie introduces the most historically relatable feature.

In the kitchen, dark and moody cabinetry offers a sophisticated backdrop. The cladding’s distressed texture ties into the classical ornamentation throughout the home, including the paneling to the right. Creative features make this space special – including the vibrant greenery planted in the combination stove hood / island light.

A formal dining room occupies a bright space just around the corner from the kitchen. The living room is right on the other side of the concrete wall to the left. To the right, a mirrored wall reflects all the natural lighting back into the room and makes the entire home feel connected to this important space.

Whereas the floorboards run diagonally in the social areas, they flawlessly guide the eye in a straight line down the hallway. This passage leads to the private areas of the home. Intricate boiserie steps aside and lets the ornamentation of natural wood take center stage.

Classical influence takes its strongest form in the master bedroom. Woodcut style artwork spans the length of the headboard wall – rather than hanging artwork, the wall itself becomes a piece to admire. The bed’s frame helps further emphasize the artwork behind it: not obscured in any way.

Each of the two bathrooms adopts a different style. This bath, attached to the master bedroom, continues the dark grey-and-black theme present throughout the main space. Rich stone, dark wood, and reflected ambiance bring this bathroom to the next level.

A children’s bedroom – shared by two siblings – combines sleek modernism with classic Art Deco influence. This space is lighter than the rest of the home, boosting the mood of the young occupants and reducing distraction during study time.

The lights are from the Prop series by Bertjan Pot.

Classic elements include dark boards and ornate wall paneling on the dry side of the bathroom, with rich marble in the shower enclosure. The marble sink vessel is carved from the corner for an interesting aged effect.

And finally, a look at the more public bathroom. It feels immediately welcoming and brght upon entry thanks to the extensive use of translucent marble. Classical elements still form a distinctive impression of this bathroom – one large panel borders the back of the toilet, reflected through the tall mirror just opposite.
