40 Gorgeous Grey Kitchens

Mo, 21.11.2016 - 16:15

Often used in bedroom design, the soft appeal of grey can cool many interiors. Yet one secret power remains – its subtle transformation of kitchens. Often left in the cold for warmer wooden tones, its ability to make a kitchen look fresh and contemporary works wonders for a range of home styles. Whether blending into white, creating the industrial or making smooth moves in charcoal, its range and depth of hue rival many traditional kitchen colours. Paired with brighter yellows and tonal blue gradients, it offers a clean palette without the drama of white or black. Look at our top forty picks for yourself.

4 Asian-Influenced Interiors That Exude the East

Fr, 18.11.2016 - 16:00

With many design influences springing from the West – Nordic, Scandinavian, French – we sometimes forget about the luxuries of the East. Simplistic with a taste of a different kind of rustic, they offer modern elegance with a twist. Lush plant life joins with simple slatted windows and rough-shod wood to create the feel of the jungle. Low, flat lines in expansive, muted colours show a more down-to-earth design. Warm lighting glows upon curved seating, twisted and turned for the sake of innovation. Find the values of the East in your interior with these Japanese and Vietnamese homes, all visualised by Phiung Asia.

Located in Shizuoka, Japan, our first home was designed for those living in close quarters. Taking three days to visualise, its combination of iron, slatted grey wood and natural hues remind of an urban jungle. The living room grounds its design in concrete-panelled ceilings, light wood and a grey-slatted canvas. Brown suede couches remind of hides, while table mosses show different forest species. Ocean-themed watercolours mist the walls, as boxed white windows let light on the concrete floor. A wooden platform, looking more outdoors than in, looks down on plant life.

The dining table Is centred with iron hanging lights, and joined by an abstract in strokes of grey. Lit by the lounge’s open plan windows, wooden stencil features add elegance in thin-stemmed chairs, partitions and slatted cabinetry. A tree stands tall among stone and slate ornaments.

Our second space in Chiba, Japan, is a more industrial take on the same theme. Briefed to evoke nature, simplicity and sincerity, its cement, wood and tree accents span a more relaxed room. Piped cement ceilings and a matching floor house a wooden platform and furniture in the main area, clothed in dusky greys and brown leather. An exposed brick wall lets potted trees take centre stage, while a mesh and linen chandelier hangs peacefully. A simple table with leather school chairs provides a place for eating.

The TV room inspires simplicity within a stylish framework. A grey wooden panel on concrete sits beside ferns and trees, while a dreamcatcher dangles from the ceiling. Relaxed wooden chairs match simple block furniture. Joinery and a black ladder dilute the modernity of the TV, while a tree stump table sits on iron legs.

Plants are an important design feature. Potted olive trees and ferns surround themselves with cacti in the TV room. The dining table offers a fish bowl, more potted cacti and bonzai.

The kitchen’s industrial elements make themselves known, as a silver extractor fan acts the feature. Marble and wood play together, with a grey wooden panel mirroring the living room. Chrome elements in pots, pans, and appliances blend into the concrete, while highlighting the extractor fan. Air conditioning piping forms a neat line lined with lights, leading to simple hanging door threads.

Another space in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam, combines the classic and modern in one beautiful space. Designed to work with Vietnam’s early dark, lights are dotted around the house to provide ample light after five. A twelve-pronged candelabra makes an impact on the living room, swathed in tones of light grey, wood and beige. An L-shaped linen couch cradles two low-lying tables, an example of the traditional, while sliding white frames open up to a modern patio. Mossy plants and a feature chair add texture to the space, as a grey kitchen provides a simplistic backdrop.

Looking out to the patio, a skyline enters in, reaffirming the grey. A bordered ceiling reminds of the 50’s, a beehive-panelled partition the 70’s. Simple bauble vases sit on clean line shelving, housing the TV while opening to the view to an outdoor living wall.

Our final space in Ho Chi Minh measures a mere 120sqm. Geared towards the surreal, it pairs simplistic features with unusual shapes, forming a unique character. The living room shows this best, with chequered windows lighting a mottled grey couch and crafted wooden chair. Stencil lights and a TV bring technology, while a view from the lounge shows a white-and-wooden wall cabinet bearing busts, books and frames.

The view from the dining room shows more unusual finds. An unlikely pairing, copper-domed hanging lights in stretched triangles front a white-and-blue crop circle triptych. A simple wooden table allows a fifth chair to break the mould, in laid-back wooden framing. A stark black piano with ornate looking seat sits beside, as three wall hangings compete.

In the entrance, a black-and-white chequered floor paves a corridor. Warm wooden cabinetry helps add warmth, while a small copper light references the dining room and lights the way.

Gorgeous Contemporary Home with Autumnal-Hued Decor

Do, 17.11.2016 - 16:00

As Christmas nears, autumn makes its way to many of our homes around the globe. Gone are the fresh, light, summery hues, replaced with a darker, warmer, more comforting palette. An easy way to introduce these hues, without using darker (and often more expensive) wood tones, is to inject burnt orange and olive green – the colours of autumn. This snazzy apartment in Silesia, Poland was designed to house the season within the confines of modernity. Visualised by Plasterlina, its charcoal and wooden background meet colour blocks of autumnal hues, with little pops of colouring playing in-between.

The living room beckons in a bold display of autumnal tones, started off by an olive feature panel housing a clock and stacked wood. As golden Chinese lanterns dangle from the ceiling, charcoal blocks out a TV panel, woollen rug and block sofas. Pops of unexpected orange in couches and walls add warmth, while light wood lies calm in a bookcase, floor and central table.

Leading out of the living room, burnt orange surprises in a charcoal-clad hallway. Pops of colour stand out in places to hide shoes and hang coats. Ceiling spot lighting guides the way.

The focal feature of the room, the olive wall presents two sides: one living, one dining. Beside logs of wood, a similar-shaded dining table and floor blend in. Charcoal walling, a rug and dining chairs are lit by drop lights, while a glass bottom panel brings nature.

Further on to the kitchen, a two-piece block bench halves the room again. Featuring a burnt orange stencil as a focal point, potted plants can sit and offer a window to the rest of the space. Viewed together, the kitchen and dining areas act as a corridor.

The kitchen’s little features make all the difference. A stack of wine bottles remind of the stack of wood in the olive wall. Green potted plants show through the orange stencil, pairing the two for autumnal magic. Different angles show existing green counterparts, while charcoal and light wood unite the space. White demarcates the kitchen cabinetry. A small wooden bookcase hides more colourful reads in the corner.

Views through the space show complementary elements. From the living room, wooden chairs refer to wider wooden flooring. From the dining room, charcoal walls and oblong shapes make the space seem one. From the kitchen, the olive wall and burnt orange stencil continue the autumnal theme.

Bookcases provide a great way to store the household’s knowledge. Lining the corridor to the bedroom, their mostly-white covers refer to the kitchen, in charcoal and wood.

The bedroom shows a more minimalist side in simple wooden and charcoal shades. Looking out to a concrete patio, bedding and curtains sit in the same grey hue as a padded feature wall. Wooden features match the floor in mirrors, chairs, clocks and a bedframe. Lighter grey walls either side offer almost-white spaces. Dandelions make a wish on a side table.

A walk-in wardrobe reminds of our first corridor, without the burnt orange. Culminating in a mirror, charcoal and wood open up to show two sides of the bedroom. Compartmentalised oblongs reflect the contours of the wider interior, with central cubbies lit by LED lights.

A corridor in charcoal and white is a breath of fresh air, feeling #homey. Met by a study and rumpus in olive and white, its feel is different while retaining the theme. Wooden bookcases take on a block shelf quality. Ottomans and hanging lights surround, but in white. An office space, rather than wardrobe, is compartmentalised in the corner. Hanging block art makes the space feel informal.

Burnt orange dominates the bathroom. A large, lacquered desktop and mirror in the hue frame a lit mirror, reflecting a red hue in the white space. Rounded porcelain sits quietly in a bed of charcoal, while an all-white room takes on a block bath. From a shower framed by a simple glass panel, the orange desktop looks almost burlesque, with a single hanging light illuminating its space.

Olive green takes its turn in the ensuite, a corner away from the wardrobe. Framed in the same style as the burnt orange, two hanging lights designate two sinks – one for him, one for her. The sinks allude to a white tiled square below, while a charcoal section holds the necessities.

3 Small Apartments That Rock Uncommon Color Schemes [With Floor Plans]

Fr, 11.11.2016 - 16:15

Compact living spaces offer significant challenges when it comes to color planning, especially in the case of studios and open concept layouts. An open line of sight means that every accent interacts with the next – at once a restriction and a catalyst for creativity. Popular options include solid-color blocking, tertiary arrangements, thematic palettes, and of course, the always-reliable greyscale approach. Not only do these amazing apartments offer color palette inspiration in hard-to-find themes, the designers behind these spaces included helpful floor plans to help style seekers visualize the relationship between each room.

Visualizer: Maria Fadeeva  

At just 30 square meters, this lovely little apartment boasts a huge personality with its super bold color theme. Bright red accents play across a pristine canvas of white walls and floors for a look that balances the best of simplicity and incredible energy. Black details add a touch of formality to the scene, sometimes even serving as a way to center the eye with its heavier visual weight.

The style itself is an interesting take on industrial – chic patterns bring a sense of playfulness to the strong urban elements that adorn the apartment.

And the planters are just too adorable! Chain link fence is a surprisingly durable medium in interior design, able to serve as a replacement for pegboards or corkboard for modular arrangements like this one.

Eames Wire Chairs serve as a wonderful compliment to the black metal fencing. They have an industrial attitude but they’re lightweight and subtle. Plus, their streamlined bodies allow sunlight to filter right past.

The kitchen is compact but extra cute. Red upper cabinets continue the color scheme without dominating the small space, while the rest of the kitchen remains white for a clean and open aesthetic.

While the designer could have taken a studio layout approach, the bedroom instead occupies a corner room outfitted with plenty of interior windows for sunlight. The other doors lead to a bathroom and closet.

This pair of Adnet mirrors certainly makes a statement against the colorful accent wall. Flat white tiles offer a modern yet neutral backdrop to unify the rest of the bathroom.

Paned glass tiles offer a unique take on the typical enclosed shower, embodying the urban/industrial apartment theme so well.

Visualizer: Svetlana Jurkova   

Dark and classic colors are an unconventional choice for small apartments. The general idea is that light neutrals and saturated accents make spaces feel larger, but sometimes residents would prefer for their compact space to look just as intimate and cozy as it feels.

This home combines the best of modern and traditional elements, straddling the line between rural and urban aesthetics. The geometric dividing wall between the living and kitchen anchors one side of the stylistic influence, with the large skin rug contributing its huge character in turn.

Even the statement chair draws in the best of both worlds. It’s a tribute to the Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair, with rustic leather and an industrial riveted metal shell.

The kitchen and dining room peek around just on the other side of the freestanding divider. This allows someone having coffee at the breakfast table to chat with a partner watching the morning news from the sofa.

Around the corner from the entryway and running alongside the kitchen, the chalkboard wall is great for both “before you leave” reminders and ongoing grocery lists.

Despite its small size, the kitchen fits in a surprising amount of workspace. Removing two of the dining chairs extends that useful surface area even further.

The bathroom is another great example of modern and rustic influences. The tiles almost look like corroded metal, gorgeous and colorful without tying themselves to any specific theme.

The bathtub backsplash wall uses small rectangular tiles in brick-like shades to reference the materials used in the living room.

Everything else remains sleek and ultra-modern. These white fixtures easily stand out against their dark background.

And the space-saving techniques are pretty useful too.

There’s actually only space for one bathroom in the apartment, but the designer included another style to demonstrate how flexible even the smallest spaces can be.

This one maintains the same rugged industrial look but adopts a lighter greyscale palette with accents in bright orange. It feels larger, but loses some of the drama the darker scheme offered.

Visualizer: Studio Pine   

Unlike many apartments its size, this 40 square meter apartment uses interior walls to separate functional spaces. To avoid seeming cramped or overwhelmed, the designers chose sleek natural materials to foster a fresh and cheerful environment. Houseplants provide vibrant pops of green but the dining chairs serve as the only permanent source of decorative color, a pastel seafoam that seems like a perfect match for the light wood that surrounds.

The rooms and living spaces are staggered for privacy yet maintain an open line of sight where it benefits the residents most.

For example, this little reading nook occupies a hidden niche around the corner from the kitchen. It soaks up the sunlight but still feels guarded and cozy.

The kitchen and dining room serve as the heart of this unique home layout. They’re located away from the windows and disguise any cast shadows with dark herringbone floors.

Its central position allows the dining table to remain awash in warm sunlight. Smart recessed fixtures ensure the kitchen stays bright even without direct sun.

On the other hand, the bathroom revels in its moody atmosphere. Dark matte tiles come to life under directional lighting.

It’s a stark departure from the rest of the home. Whereas the main portion is a wonderland of light and layering, the bathroom serves its purpose as a thoughtful retreat.

Ravishingly Rustic Forest Hideaway With A Track Car Centre

Do, 10.11.2016 - 16:15

Fancy a modern home in a forest location? This two-storey takes the traditional home, cuts it in half, and adds a legal track car in the centre. Framed by rows of alternating fencing, this Borówiec, Poland home dubbed the ‘Fence House’ uses bricks, concrete and sheet metal to achieve its industrial look. Designed by mode:lina architekci, its features block out unnecessaries, making the most of features. Large glazed windows face the forest, protecting the family from noise. Inner windows and separate living quarters give kids and parents the freedom to live in their own style. Take our picture tour below.

A drive up to the property reveals two traditional houses, separated by one central garage. Clad in corrugated iron and plaster, its look is contemporary and subtle, with a hint of the industrial. Using minimal windows on its street-facing side, this family-of-four-designed home blocks unwelcome noise.

Reaching around the home’s side, large glazed windows wow beside charcoal brick pillars. A glossy outdoor patio leads to two brilliantly-lit areas, both teeming with modern warmth and views of the forest. Divided by a central feature pool, the left side houses the kids, the right, the parents. A central ground floor living space unites the two.

In the centre, a common living room backgrounded in brick invites in the exterior, using irregular window framing. Art deco features pop through the space in grey and yellow seating, leaning portraits and a geometric rug. Metal ceiling trusses finish off the look.

Leading up the stairs from the living room, concrete mixes with grey and light wood to create a clean, yet rustic, feel. A feature bookcase celebrates the forest with old oak panelling from a Poznan townhouse. New and old wood oscillate against a glass safety panel and wide glazed windows. A bench seat offers a space for reading.

Downstairs in the dining room, grey wood mixes with warmer hues. A glass-and-wood cabinet reflects the textures of the library, while white adds light in painted walls, hanging lights and table legs. A woven pod chair welcomes visitors in, while the wall moves to accommodate them.

Downstairs in the dining room, grey wood mixes with warmer hues. A glass-and-wood cabinet reflects the textures of the library, while white adds light in painted walls, hanging lights and table legs. A woven pod chair welcomes visitors in.

Another shared family space, the kitchen peeks behind the dining room in black, white and wooden features. A concrete floor and lacquered white cabinetry provide a canvas for a rustic bench holding a slab. Rounded black features in an extractor fan and lighting play off white stools and a chrome fridge, adding the modern. Wide-paned windows framed in heavy black let the outside in.

Past the kitchen and dining room, a treat lurks under the staircase. Large-format concrete leads to a showcase garage, featuring a legal track car in racy red. The focal point of this open-plan home, its red draws the eye from the dining, living and kitchen areas. A subtle grey bench offers a place to take in its beauty.

The bedrooms create spaces for adults and kids to play – separately. Located on opposite sides, they each feature a triangulated ceiling. The kids’ bedroom offers a safe haven in a modern attic style. Drenched in light wood, it opens to two tepee house frames with twin teal bedside tables. Open windows on their top and side let in daylight, glowing amber at night. Light-wooden ceiling trusses and a monochromatic wardrobe panel structure the space. A bench desk faces the window, with a rainbow-coloured ottoman as a seat.

On the opposite side of the house, parents sleep in rustic tones. Light-wooden floors and trussing reveal an area made wide by both doors and sliding windows. Large, black-framed panes from the kitchen open up the forest, while iron-sliding barn doors extend to the corridors. A distressed wooden bed frame, black iron shelving and cobweb chandelier add character. Sliding windows reveal an outdoor balcony.

The corridors are a showcase of materials used. From the bedroom to the hallway, distressed wood mixes with glass and iron. From the top of the stairs, white, light wood and concrete reign king. Towards the bathroom, distressed wood and concrete complete a full circle.

Two bathrooms show both adult and child personalities. The master bathroom is slick and industrial, featuring polished, imperfect wood, a simple glass shower and luxurious wall-to-floor concrete. Bathed in white, the kids’ bathroom remains simplistic in porcelain amenities with pops of grey tiling. A black-goggled mirror adds an element of play.

See the drawings below for an overview of the home’s layout.

Buy It: $120 for set of 4   

Eames Style Dining Chair: Although both Charles and Ray Eames were born and educated in the United States, both admired and were influenced by the work of Finnish architect Eliel Saarinen (you might be familiar with his son, Eero).

Thankfully, the Eames tendency to use molded forms ensured that today’s decorators can enjoy affordable and accurate reproductions like these.

Buy It: $499

This cleverly streamlined chair would look right at home in any minimalist interior.

Buy It: $300   

Kartell Masters Chair: Philippe Starck is a French designer who channeled the forms of the world’s three most iconic chairs within one elegant form. The Masters Chair combines the shapes of the Tulip Armchair by Eero Saarinen, the Eiffel Chair by Eames, and the Series 7 by Arne Jacobsen. Each one is lightweight at just 9 pounds, suitable for indoor or outdoor use, and stands at just over 33 inches tall. This original is available in black, grey, yellow, red, sage green, and classic white.

Buy It: $431  

Arne Jacobsen Drop Chair: Here’s something with a little undeniable retro flavor! Arne Jacobsen’s Drop Chair is as sculptural as it is comfortable. It was impossible to obtain an authorized version of this chair for more than 50 years but has recently come out of its hiatus for Scandinavian design fans to enjoy. This series is currently available in greyscale tones including a subtle blue tint. Consider picking up a set of these to complete your atomic age dining room or to offset straight lines in a geometric interior.

Buy It: $559   

Muuto Cover Chair: Copenhagen-based designer Thomas Bentzen created this chair for collectors with an eye for detail. It’s a contemporary design made without any metal parts at all, relying on the natural strength of the wood armrests and their exceptionally clever engineering. These chairs are a fitting complement to any modern kitchen, but especially ones with an architecturally focused design. Each chair stands at 30 inches tall with an 18-inch high seat.

Buy It: $518   

Arne Jacobsen Grand Prix Chair: Can’t get enough authentic Arne Jacobsen? The 1957 Grand Prix chair was an ambitious undertaking that resulted in an unconventional yet striking form tailored to the human body. This classic is available in a rainbow of vivid colors, carefully stained to retain the intricate grain of its wood veneer. Tubular steel legs place them firmly within the realm of sensible mid-century modern design.

Buy It: $650   

Muuto Fiber Chair: Aleksej Iskos and Boris Berlin collaborated to create this ultra-smooth and sculptural chair.

Buy It: $326   

Eames Molded Plywood Style Dining Chair: These reproduction Eames chairs are manufactured strictly according to the original specifications, resulting in a true-to-inspiration investment piece for fans of the designers. But they’re also practical and surprisingly comfortable, suitable for home or commercial applications alike.

Buy It: $129   

Salt Chair by Tom Kelley: Designer Tom Kelley lived, studied, and worked with companies all across the world. It’s no wonder that a little Scandinavian influence entered his personal lexicon. The Salt Chair definitely hints at classic Swedish styles but has the distinct advantage of a compact and modern form. The most defining feature is the legs – they don’t splay outward, making for a small footprint perfect for small spaces like eat-in kitchens or cozy restaurants.

Buy It: $199   

J104 Chair: Jørgen Bækmark is one of the many influential designers to come from Denmark’s famous FDB Mobler and this chair is certainly a representative work of the design house’s clean and natural style. Even within a minimalist or modern interior without other Scandinavian influences, the providence of this piece will still shine through clearly. Black, red, white, and grey lacquer options join the traditional soaped beech for endless decor options.

Buy It: $200   

Thonet Style Chair: Although the Thonet name comes from a masterful woodwork company in Germany, this distinctive chair style has become famous the world over. Its elegant curves look as if they were made for a delicate cottage chic home with Scandinavian flair – but the truth is that this ubiquitous choice would look good anywhere. While the original works by the Thonet family are preciously hard to find today, these solid elm chairs do a fabulous job of imitating the quality and smoothness of the iconic bentwood construction.

Buy It: $230 for 2   

Kai Kristiansen Style Model 42 Chair: These are a perfect style for anybody who craves a Scandinavian take on mid-century modern but want something darker and with more refined upholstery.

The removable cloth cushions are available in every color of the rainbow so you can update your dining set as your interior design tastes change over time.

Buy It: $77   

Philippe Starck Louis Ghost Style Chair: While the classic Louis Chair form is a historically significant holdover from classic French design, Philippe Starck’s Ghost Chair brought it into the world of modernism.

These see-through chairs are great for small or dark interiors where preservation of natural sunlight proves most important.

This is a top quality reproduction made with walnut veneer and Italian leather.

Buy It: $89   

Eames Style Molded Plywood Lounge Chair: The renowned Eames name truly elevated the status of plywood in the design world. This re-creation includes a rubber shock mount that shifts with the position of the sitter to ensure enduring comfort.

Buy It: $790   

Cuba Lounge Chair: Danish designer Morten Gøttler created this piece in 1997 yet it still looks just as fresh as ever and will likely serve as an enviable collector’s piece for generations to come. Incredible attention to detail goes into the construction of each one – the cotton straps are hand woven, the oak frame carefully soaped or lacquered, the hardware forged from sturdy brass. But perhaps the best thing about this lounge chair is its folding design, making it easy to stow away when extra floor space is required.

Buy It: $595   

Jens Risom Style Lounge Chair: Educated at the School for Arts and Crafts in Copenhagen, Jens Risom is famously credited for helping to popularize Scandinavian design in the United States after emigrating at the age of 26.

Buy It: $885   

Jens Chair: Available in oak or walnut and in a huge array of upholstery colors, this Jens Risom original (initially released in 1949) is a versatile chair that can bring mid-century Danish charm to interiors of every style. This sort of versatility was always a hallmark of Risom’s design philosophy and especially well with this piece.

Buy It: $1482   

Risom Rocker Chair: Here’s another original by Jens Risom, this time with a more distinctive mid-century form – the shape of the backrest is unforgettable. It’s actually one of the most recent creations by the visionary designer, released in 2009. One of the most interesting things about this rocking chair is the attention to functional engineering, using balance and weight to ensure incredible fluidity of motion. This piece would be an excellent addition to a nursery, bedroom, or anywhere else where relaxation is essential.

Buy It: $899   

Selig Z Style Chair: Poul Jensen’s fascinating Z Chair has an iconic profile, and this re-creation is true to form.

The seat height stands at 18 inches with an overall chair height of 32 inches, perfect for low-profile interiors like the one pictured above.

This replica is available in a choice of white, black, or vibrant red Italian leather. It’s hard to find a better reproduction than this one.

Buy It: $455   

Le Corbusier Grand Confort Style Chair: Swiss-French architect Charles-Édouard Jeanneret (more famously known as Le Corbusier) designed the Grand Confort armchair in 1928 – a style very far ahead of its time. The Museum of Modern Art holds a few examples as permanent members of its collection, but this reproduction makes it accessible to collectors of high-end furniture. It’s available in black or tan leather contained in a stainless steel frame. This piece is easy to place in the running if you’re looking to adopt a darker Nordic-inspired interior with industrial undertones.

Buy It: $879   

Saarinen Style Womb Chair: Eero Saarinen designed the original Womb Chair in 1948 and it quickly became a classic staple of mid-century modern furniture design. This reproduction is crafted from a fiberglass shell and upholstered in fine hand-stitched cashmere for a dreamily soft touch. It’s available in a wide range of colors ranging from orange to purple and includes the equally beautiful and versatile ottoman.

Buy It: $640   

Eames Style Lounge Chair: Perhaps one of the most recognizable designs by Eames, this lounge often finds its way into Scandinavian themed spreads in magazines despite its American origin. This reproduction feels soft to the touch thanks to high quality Italian leather upholstery and exceeds decorative expectation with its walnut veneer shell. This famously comfortable lounge is ideal for a reading nook, library, or media room.

Buy It: $680   

LC4 Lounge Style Chair: Rivaling the Eames lounge in icon status, the LC4 is a renowned Le Corbusier masterpiece.

Like the original, it’s easily adjustable to suit your desired level of relaxation.

Buy It: $356   

Arne Jacobsen Style Egg Chair: Even those who are unfamiliar with the work of Arne Jacobsen are likely to recognize this distinctive chair. This look-alike is available in a huge variety of colors – including metallic and leather options – to suit your home or office style.

Buy It: $265   

Butterfly Sling Chair: While the Hardoy model is the most known among designers, the style itself has been recreated and reinvented many times over in the decades since its 1938 reveal. The chair in the link is rather unique thanks to its bold stitching and leather surface, lending it a more formal appeal than most of the models on the market.

Buy It: $170   

Grant Featherston Style Contour Wing Chair: The original 1951 chair by Australian designer Grant Featherston is ubiquitous with the Atomic Age aesthetic. It is now considered a piece of modern art and fetches lucrative prices at auction, but the strong market for look-alikes ensures there are always options available at a reasonable price.

Buy It: $1139

This original is manufactured in Norway and upholstered in Denmark using only the highest quality fabrics. While most people are more familiar with the Scandinavian furniture that originated in the 50s and 60s, this piece will place your interior firmly in the present.

Buy It: $318   

Arne Jacobsen Swan Style Chair: The original Swan Chair is a versatile piece, but the reproduction linked in this post makes it just perfect for the office. It even includes a hydraulic base for use at the desk!

Buy It: $172   

Nutshell Lounge Chair: This handsome lounge mimics the curves of Pierre Paulin’s Slice Chair but maintains a more subtle form overall. The range of colors definitely speaks to the era of the original – black, brown, white, and especially the rusty orange and marbled tan.

Buy It: $150   

LumiSource Vintage Mod Accent Chair: Molded wood and simple tapered chair legs are a staple of the mid-century modern style, but they’ll never go out of fashion. This model sits a little higher than many accent chairs inspired by the same era with a seat height of almost 18 inches. The legs and veneer are walnut and the upholstery is available in versatile black or white.

Buy It: $263   

Wassily Style Chair: Hungarian-born architect Marcel Breuer produced great Bauhaus style furniture but his famous Wassily Chair is flexible enough to suit a variety of interior styles. The patent on the original has expired since its original creation in 1925, allowing for relatively affordable reproductions like this one. The link leads to three styles that deviate from the black design most people are familiar with, including tan or white with the typical steel framing and a gorgeous brown and copper tone model.

Buy It: $150   

Bertoia Style Diamond Chair: If you’re looking to bring a touch of industrial aesthetic to your interior, wire chairs are an effortless go-to solution. Although Harry Bertoia was born in Italy and practiced in the United States, his popular Diamond Chair design is a common addition to Scandinavian inspired decor – especially as pictured here, with a simple fur or wool throw draped over. The combination is a gorgeous way to embrace both worlds.

Buy It: $642   

Eero Aarnio Style Ball Chair: While the original serves as a true piece of industrial design history (and regularly fetches prices far exceeding $10,000) this re-creation makes it possible to bring this sculptural piece of furniture into your own home. Choose from green, orange, red, or yellow and embrace the quirky fun of one of the most recognizable chairs of the 60s.

Buy It: $239   

Zig Zag Style Chair: Based on a 1934 design by Dutch designer Gerrit Rietveld, the Zig Zag chair was definitely ahead of its time. It was designed for the Rietveld Schroder House, known as one of the first and only homes constructed entirely according to the De Stijl movement’s aesthetics and ideals. This fascinating and artistic piece adds fun and whimsy to any setting, sure to become a talking point at your next gathering. This re-creation is constructed from solid ash with a natural finish and includes rubber footpads to protect your floor. The handle on the back makes it easy to rearrange or store away.

Two Different Springtime Themes In Two Small Apartments

Fr, 04.11.2016 - 16:15

Have you ever wondered what your home would look like had you chosen a different decor theme? After all the colors are picked out and all the decorations are in place, it can be difficult to imagine it any other way (at least until you decide to do it all over again). But this interior designer used visualization software to explore this concept even further – this post tours two homes with the exact same compact floor plan but two completely different themes and arrangements. The first home is bright and casual with an eternally spring-like atmosphere, but the second home is darker and moodier with a more refined aesthetic.

Simple natural influences make this apartment feel as bright as a fresh spring day. Pastel greens, sunny yellows, and lots of light wood bring the outdoors in – and sometimes the theme goes even further, like adding fake grass to the top of the ottomans you see snugly tucked beneath the table here in the living room.

Elsewhere, the earthy and organic theme pops with modern geometric accents like these lovely sculptures. It’s all a matter of balance and thematic contrast.

Because this apartment has an open layout, the spot-on color coordination is a huge asset to the visual continuity of the space. While color blocking is the easier and more flexible route, this carefully curated apartment is a perfectionist’s dream.

While color flourishes at every turn, it’s important to note that the accents will be easy to change later. The insides of the cabinets, for example, are easy to make with DIY paper inserts.

One of the bolder details is this mossy vertical garden wedged into this central wall. It’s actually a housing to contain the refrigerator but becomes a stunning large form sculpture with this aesthetic addition.

The moss-covered wall also helps provide some division between the kitchen and living room. Here, the dining table finds a sensible home.

And we cannot ignore this backsplash. Its photographic quality matches the “sunny spring day” theme, transporting the viewer to the lens of a camera covered with morning dew.

The private areas of the home are accessible by the mirror-covered hallway. Extra storage space hides behind each reflective door.

This entryway niche is just too perfect. It has plenty of space to sit, with convenient coat hooks and stylish shoe storage concealed beneath.

Now onto the bedrooms! This master suite tones down the theme present throughout the rest of the house, using a palette of greys and teals to create a relaxing environment for the parents after a long day of work.

Rather than the sunny springtime theme of the main living space, this bedroom adopts a more rainy day vibe. It’s easy to imagine picking these colors from a photograph of a foggy morning on the lake.

The bedroom for the children brings back the bright colors in a big way. Bold blue accents – that double as chalkboards – are just bursting with energy.

The other side of the room has so many admirable features. The modular wall panels are modern design goals, and the smart storage in the staircase and beneath the bed are just too perfect. We love how the lofted bed makes space for a small playroom.

And the desk is super-functional too. Open shelves, lots of drawers, and the fun office supply organizers help the kids stay neat and tidy while working on assignments for school.

Wow – the efficiency of this bathroom is breathtaking, but the way it continues the natural theme from the rest of the home is impressive as well.

And the other bathroom also adopts a nature-inspired palette, this time with a red clay tone. It’s warm and comforting and includes just a touch of wood to bring it back in line with the overall home aesthetic.

All of the sources of hidden lighting banish shadows and make the room feel larger. The strip of inset lighting above the bathtub almost looks like sunlight!

The second home starts with a much more subdued color theme, this time in all in the blue spectrum, almost like a lake or a foggy evening. It combines linear and rounded forms, playing with geometric contrast at every turn. Like the previous home, this one revolves around an F-shaped floor plan but uses an entirely different arrangement.

The open living room and dining room are more connected in this home visualization than the last. Rather than a dining table, this space makes use of a handsome breakfast bar attached to a longer kitchen island.

Geometric tiles and open cabinets make the kitchen feel connected to the rest of the interior. Patterned pillows and a cylindrical table bring the geometric theme to the living room.

The wall sconces are so cute! Triangles of yellow paint bring them in line with the rest of the open layout theme.

Just look at that incredible transition between wood floors and hexagonal tiles! Expert woodworking isn’t cheap or easy, but the result is unforgettable.

The master bedroom includes gorgeous triangular wall panels, sure to play with the pendant lights after dark.

Even the media wall continues the geometric theme.

And here’s the kid’s bedroom, complete with two pegboard walls: one for climbing and one for hanging artwork.

Adorable hot-air balloons and infinitely creative pegboards ensure this bedroom caters to the imagination before anything else.

So cute!

The pegboard wall and tall chalkboard leave so much room for imaginative play. The child can practice their ABCs or arrange artwork on the pegs, while keeping track of homework right beyond the desk.

Of course, the bathroom is innovative and efficient too.

Sandy patterns and river rocks foster a desert-like atmosphere, with a lush green rug serving as a sort of oasis and irresistible focal point.

Super Small Studio Apartment Under 50 Square Meters (Includes Floor Plan)

Do, 27.10.2016 - 17:15

Innovation in interior design often results from restrictions. Smaller apartments and lofts are common examples of living spaces needing an open plan feel. What happens when your living space is under 50sqm? This Russian space, measuring just under 43sqm, is a challenge to any designer. Modern in feel and urban Japanese in décor, it segments different living spaces in one smart central unit. Designed by Rue Temple, each living area is broken off into a series of hallways – a kitchen, living room, relaxation space, storage space, bedroom and bathroom – to unite the space as a whole. Take a peek below.

Framed by a concrete ceiling and stone-coloured floor, a wooden compartment acts the central feature. Separating several spaces in one, the room taken is multiplied tenfold in utility. A leaf green velvet couch marks the living room, lit by a triangular black wall light. Backgrounded by a bookcase and facing a flat screen TV, its foreground doubles as a hallway. The kitchen lurks beyond.

Just past the couch, a corridor opens. Clothed in top-to-toe light wood, a desk juts out in the same material. A thin-lined desk chair eats less room and mirrors the flat screen.

Wooden stairs lead to a wooden platform, where visitors can relax. Grey cotton beanbag couches invite on the floor, Japanese in style. Two grey lights hang on a grey concrete ceiling. White walls either side augment the light from a simple window, while LED strips line the walls at night.

To the left, a bedroom is revealed. Swathed in a lighter shade of grey, character pops out in a small white light shrouded in greenery. A window to a white wall gives the illusion of more light.

The wooden compartment winds around spaces in one continuous corridor. Lined with white-painted heating rails, light-wood fixtures in benches and window ledges unite its form. Chrome door handles polish it off.

Light is let in at different focal points, specifically tailored to the space. At night, hanging lights let a projector TV add animation. During the day, two simple windows across the hallway pass sunlight down the corridors. The bedroom’s central window reflects the effect.

A closer look at the bedroom shows many elements of innovation. Box-shaped in form, LED lights fire up in the evening, moved closer by twin bedside lamps. Jutting ledges in the same wood act as bedside tables, seen from open frames to the side. A ball of raw yarn adds an element of play.

A view from a corridor reveals the secret to lightness and brightness. Although at first glance a square frame, the bedroom is only half wall, with the entrance and two windows removed of barriers. Views through the openings introduce the study and relaxation room, alluding to greater indoor-outdoor flow. Muted colouring avoids furniture blocking.

The bedroom’s living lights pop up throughout. The hallway to the left shows a hanging version, a minimalist feature in an otherwise white space. The third sits in a corner, easy to access from the lounge and central corridor. A jut in the bedroom’s wood provides an additional ledge.

Through the central corridor, a kitchen makes space. The same grey hanging light glows upon a shiny grey breakfast ledge. Simple white cabinetry and a chrome fridge add contrasting elements, white and grey, without breaking up the space. LED lights lining underneath cabinetry provide light and a feeling of warmth.

The bathroom manages chic in grey slate tiled walls and bath sides, in large-format. A hanging light in white matches white porcelain fixtures. A mirror reflects the shower beside an elegant standing bowl basin, providing double the illusion of room. Chrome plumbing adds a finishing touch.

Two Similar Interiors for Couples With and Without Kids

Fr, 21.10.2016 - 17:15

Want to achieve a beautifully crafted feel in your home, but worried the kids will stain the sofas and break the tables? Considering mustard colours in your living room, but unsure how to skilfully employ it in designing your home? These two home designs show a similar interior, with kids both in and out of mind. Similar in their usage of mustard lounges, pastel hues and Scandinavian touches, they offer design guides to keep simplicity in your home, and wrecked masterpieces out. Sophisticated, full of character and exceedingly modern, take a gander if your home life is about to house children.

Visualizer: E Space  

Our first space, for a couple with children, sits at a mere 180sqm. Located in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine, it was briefed to create a total of nine living spaces with an airy, light feel. Situating three living spaces within the one room, each area is spatially designated through colour and feel. The living room makes a stand with a wooden feel, where low wooden cabinetry, floors and wooden wall panels add a simplistic backdrop. Mustard chairs sing next to a light-grey L-sofa, while yellow patterns in the rug rush to greet it. LED strip and box lighting keep it modern, while a bamboo plant in the corner introduces nature. A marble TV cabinet and living room table add a touch of class unbreakable by the kids.

Just beside the living room, the dining room presents a different feel. Divided by an illustrated wall motif atop a simple white shelf, a simple wooden table with linen chairing presents a classic twist on the traditional family table. While drop lights hang at different lengths, a row of bamboo sprouts out of a planter box. Whether looking to or from the kitchen, the dining room seems separate, with only one wall illustration marking its territory.

The kitchen’s clean yet traditional look holds an old-school romance. Wooden cupboards and shelving are interspersed with classic white cabinetry and plates. White chiffon floats behind a white stencilled kitchen panel, bringing the design into modernity. Stool chairs resemble those in the dining room, while an LED-lit marble splashback harks to the lounge. Chrome and white tree lights add a finishing touch.

The master bedroom uses details to vamp up simplicity. Shaded using an opaque dividing wall, its lines reflect those in simple white cabinetry and bookshelf squares. Curtains from the kitchen frame a taupe-and-teal quilted headboard that acts as a feature wall. Golden vases and jewellery boxes add a touch of luxury, as reflected in the dining room’s hanging lights. A subtle beige rug means bedtime.

The nursery plays with pastel and quirky prints, achieving a cute simplicity. Billowing white chiffon backgrounds a white filigree hanging chair and hexagonal Chinese lighting. A spotted wall in muted colouring acts the same as the woolly beige rug, adding softness. Light wood and LED lights alternate in dolls houses, clothing railings, a baby table and chairs, skirting and feature ladybirds. Pastels pop everywhere in-between in baby pink, mint, light lemon yellow and lounge-reminiscent mustard. Cute characters fill in the blanks.

The bathroom uses the LED-lighting theme to its advantage, making speckled marble shiny white. Crossing through unexpected borders, it matches with a grey shagpile before contrasting with simple white porcelain. Dark wooden flooring and chrome towel railing tie in the rest.

Visualizer: Igor Sirotov  

Our second space uses many of the same ideas – without children in mind. Requiring less space sans nursery, spaces are more spacious and monotone, stretching into blank canvasses for statement pieces. In the lounge, a mustard six-seater bends around a corner, cradling an ottoman. Tossing cushions to the side, the grey expanse behind evokes a feeling of calm. A large dome light beams copper lights over a white dining table, which is joined by white standing lamps and opaque block windows. Storage is subtly achieved through a light-wood and beige fabric box blending into the wall. Light grey complements cameraman dining chairs and a small wooden floor.

The space transitions freely into different moods. From one side of the lounge, a glass fireplace cooks the area before the kitchen. Looking towards the dining area, a white bookcase and alcohol cabinet appear. Juxtaposed against one another as respectively minimal and ornate, they each express a strong character. A rock sculpture brings peace from the East.

A minimalistic kitchen is perfect for entertaining. Alternating wooden floors lead up to a matte expanse of taupe, broken only by chrome fixtures and soft inlet lighting. As a hanging light glows on stool-sitters, earthenware decorates the bench.

The bedroom says rest and relaxation – without the kids. Large imperfect wooden trunks ground the bed, draped in soft greys and white. A fabric headboard says comfort, and another glass fireplace modern pampering. An enamel autumn tree vase, rustic standing light and matching ottomans add character.

The study brings bedroom themes one step away from relaxation. Using the same standing light and ottomans, Venetian blinds structure incoming light. A chair, clothed in charcoal and light wood, stands out against a white table. Light wooden flooring and a copper desk light unite the dining room.

The bathroom is a honeycomb hive, with mustard hexagons peppering its space. Letting large white porcelain take centre stage, the bath wows as little grey spokes hold it up. Cylindrical washbasins add comfort in shape, while eggshell wall fixtures hold amenities with sophistication. Simple round ceiling lights work with mirrors to add light, while honeycomb covers the space. A wooden trunk in the shower offers a simple place to rest.

4 Interiors That Harmonise Clutter Using Scandinavian Style

Do, 20.10.2016 - 17:15

Beautifully-designed home interiors often have one thing in common: a lack of clutter. Streamlined to perfection with minimal accessories in sight, they offer a picturesque example of what we would like to achieve – but struggle to – on an everyday basis. These four homes make the beautiful achievable, using Scandinavian design as a basic structure. Peppered with ornaments, useful fixtures and looking more like your house might every day, their perfect blend of patterns and tones make detail look crafted, not cluttered. Representing very different design themes, they offer an option for those who are not super-minimalist, but still aspire to the delights of gorgeous interior design.

Visualizer: Thai Quang  

Our first home design uses a Scandinavian backdrop to showcase pops of colour and an array of potted plants. In the lounge, bold mustard tones cover kitchen and lounge cabinetry and a chair, backgrounded by walls in white. A black table and intermittent grey-and-black rug tie together, reflecting their tones in two sketch prints above the sofa. The grey sofa and cabinetry make way for teal hanging lights and more prints, swathed in grey-and-black lines. An array of white and terracotta-potted plants pepper the space with a lived-in feel.

Hints of Scandinavian influence pop up throughout the space. Standing on light-wooden floors, a classic white-and-wood kitchen bench props up basic wooden shelving. The dining room holds a simple white table and chairs, interspersed with quirky mesh-back chairs in teal. White heaters gain clear space, and chrome vertical handles sophistication. Opening the space via white windows, a light, airy feel allows bold colour personalities to shine.

Visualizer: Julia Trintsukova  

Our second space is also keen as mustard – but with pastel over-and undertones. Classic white shelving on pure white lightens and brightens, with a stencil white bookcase and books bound in the same hue. As white holds pot plants in three identical holders, grey couches and light-wood furniture takes out the dark. Going bright with a mustard piano, teal armchair, ’67 Chevy poster and feature liquor bottles, Scandinavian structure allows the space to remain clean and light.

A view towards the kitchen shows a similar pattern. Starting with bold mustard cabinetry and utensils, simple white French doors with a light grey frame allow a black-and-white inlet and oven to take dominance. Balanced by white cabinetry and hanging lights, pastel tones in the kitchen stools and kettle add a playful element. Necessities are drowned out in white and light wood.

A pretty hallway provides a break that looks more Manhattan than Scandinavia. Using a pink pastel door as a feature, a striking star-linoleum floor makes the black-framed window less dominant. White offers a canvas.

The kids’ bedroom is a perfect place for pastels to play. Using the same white background, zigzag and striped patterns rule in mustard, blue and green. Elements of pink in toys and potted plants contrast with a baby blue bookcase, made soft by white bunkbeds and light-wood flooring. A touch of green introduces nature.

Dominant colours are made adult in the master bedroom, which bathes itself in pure white. Using soft beige elements to transition to a striking abstract piece, potted plants and a large baby blue armoire help pan out colour. A subtle bookshelf holds white-bound books.

The bathroom and laundry use the kitchen’s black and white tiling with another multi-faceted design. Halved in black-and-white tiling and a beige upper, the laundry’s walls align with white fixtures to let multi-coloured tiles shine among pastels. The bathroom’s baby blue and pinks sit on the same tiling, made more elaborate by pops of red from the living room. Mustard details tie in the total space.

Visualizer: AM Studio  

Our next space shows how a Scandinavian framework makes many accessories uncluttered. Using trademark white walls with an almost-white wooden floor, beige couches and a chair make little impact in the living room – leaving room for the small elements. Sitting and pegged above white shelving, black-and-white photos show memories, while grey-and-white stationery chills beside. Books in black and white, and small boxes in charcoal and beige, sit above. Sitting on one of four differently-coloured wooden elements, a leaning abstract art piece sits among animated cups, a jug, vase, clock and small prints.

The kitchen adds warmth to the room, through warm wooden tables and freshly-baked bread. Matched by Scandinavian bench seating, wood sits happily upon white cabinetry, brick and wooden flooring. Interspersed with minor elements of grey and greenery, a camouflage lamp lights up a series of milk bottles and matching white mason jars. From far away, cabinetry takes on a soft baby blue below four copper lamps.

Our last space uses many elements in the one space – successfully. Bathing them in neutral tones of taupe, beige and white, their patterns fill the room with character without filling it with colour. Using just the one living space, patterns demarcate different living spaces. The lounge’s charcoal couch offers comfort in a similarly-hued striped blanket. A multitude of monochromatic prints offer a range of views, lit by simple white French windows. Patterns in cushions, scattered around the space, tie to one other – striped cushions to the mat and art, zigzags to the woven elements. Three small white tables and a chair house twigs and cacti in simple glassware.

The bedroom offers a similar structure reflected through the rest of the space. Many small frames hang above its bed, similar to the lounge. From the bed, stripes tie again to cushion and print elements. A black hover lamp adds focus to the bedside table, which turns towards a window ledge acting as a bookcase. Potted plants beside and surrounding tie the space together.

The bedroom is a place to relax, to be pampered, and to be romantic. With the average person spending thirty percent of their life asleep, why not make your bedroom your most important room?

Exploring themes from glowing amber to native African, they show how versatile the bedroom can be – and how glorious a matching ensuite, or pool, can make the space. Take a peek at the most private of rooms with these four globally gorgeous designs.

Bedrooms are often for two, and what better way to celebrate it than with warmth and love? This amber-hued bedroom, eye-catching in tones of brown, grey, beige and midnight blue, knows the way to take romance to the next level. From the front, a textured headboard showcases the bed, while an array of stripes in brown, grey and charcoal clothe it. Smooth walls in midnight blue, and matte walls in light grey, frame each side. A mirror invites a muted couch and ottoman. Tying to coconut-half hanging lights, an origami chandelier glows above the space.

From the bed, a fine wood-panelled feature greets the eye in beige. Above a simple wooden bench, the TV is visited by a row of vases, each emanating an earthy feel. Diagonal to LOVE frames, a bookcase sidles by the feature wall, carrying books bound in white. Grey curtains and white chiffon let light in, while a rustic wooden door seals the deal.

Our second bedroom gives off the tropical and tribal – in one space. Gloriously open plan, it segments each space through levelling simple wooden flooring. In the bedroom, a four-poster frame makes a statement with a tribal brown and white motif. White calico hangs above, in a manner befitting a king. While lush green palms frolic outside, black stencil framing makes the room modern. A glowing amber lamp, wooden horseshoe and lantern heat up a traditional wooden cabinet.

The space steps into a pool area, modernised by chrome fittings. Backgrounded by a cane wall, painted terracotta pots stand to attention and hang from the ceiling. A shower fixture offers a place to refresh, while the toilet invites with a striking jade feature wall.

The outdoors play a large part in the design, through large black-framed windows. Looking to the toilet, the green outside mirrors the jade inside. From the toilet, an oval mirror on beige granite appears as another window. A cane basket references the cane wall.

The bathroom closes with a gold engraving, lying flat on the wall. A small porcelain toilet and bide offer simplicity in service.

A touch of the exotic is the order of the day for this Tunisian-style bedroom. Taking glamour to a whole new level, this room is fit for a prince – or princess. Moroccan-inspired wallpaper catches attention with two silver-etched headboards rolled together into one. The statement continues with a bed shrouded in grey fur, and topped with blue and white cushions. Reaching out to the side with a mirror, a glass bedside table offers a sprig of life in black filigree steel. Placed on grey stone tiles with a white decorated border, this bedroom was designed to impress.

To the left of the bed, a brown leather couch adds masculinity. Fur ottomans offer a place to rest the feet, while tying in the fur duvet. A series of silver-and-glass hanging lights and a mirror door frame the view behind.

Visualizer: Adi R Indra G  

For a touch of the 21st Century, it’s hard to go past this metallic interior. Setting the scene with a silver-and-black lined feature wall, an artful stencil clock traces the time. Wide bed panelling in dark wood extends into white enamel bedside tables and a headboard. Trinkets in rose gold, silver and white porcelain are lit by glowing lamps beside. Beige and stone bedding add an air of calm as the TV speaks back on an opposing wall. Shelves hold trinkets high from billowing white and beige curtains.

The little details say a lot. Contrasting dark wood and stone enamel play off against rose gold lamps, as books sit above. Strip LED lighting underneath shelves lights up metallic accessories, forming an aesthetic line with the top of the TV.
