A Stylish Apartment with Classic Design Features

Fri, 05.09.2014 - 19:59

When designing the interior for a new home, it can be difficult to choose between the comfortable elegance of classic style and the sleek simplicity of modern pieces. This doctor’s apartment, with interior design by Elvin Aliyev and Leyla Ibrahimova manages to marry the two styles nicely. More elaborate pieces like a chandelier and cozy sofas work easily with more neutral, modern elements. The result is a home that can be lived in comfortably that reflects personality along with style.

First, the living room is dominated by an array of patterns and colors, from two bright wall hangings to a geometric print rug.

The varied seating options create a truly inviting conversation area with diverse textures in upholstery and calming neutral colors.

This creative wall treatment helps the flat panel television to almost disappear into the wall when not in use.

Sleek marble for the end table and coffee table are distinctly modern and chic.

The dark colors in the room, including the ceiling panels, are masculine yet warm.

The designer also offers another version of the living room area that has its own classic style, starting with old world art and royal blue sofas.

The use of lighter colors makes this options feel a bit more open and feminine.

Using a marble look for this wall treatment is decidedly elegant, but does not let the television disappear in the same way.

Overall, the lighter option makes the room feel more open while the darker room does a better job of separating living area from dining room.

When we glimpse into this bedroom, we see some very modern, simple elements that create a perfect retreat for a teen.

Plenty of lighting offsets the dark navy walls.

The low platform bed is simple, with its own elegance.

A wide desk, facing the window for plenty of sunlight, leaves room for at least one study buddy.

This bathroom decor is dark and cool.

A cool bowl sink and mirror work well with the tiled backsplash.

Surrounding the second bathroom in marble tiles makes it like a chamber of privacy.

A narrow shower is practical and simple.

Open shelving and mirror space with a large basin make getting ready fuss free.

The Magic of Wood and Light

Thu, 04.09.2014 - 16:18

Just as the construction of any building starts with a strong foundation, the design of any beautiful space starts with its materials. Sure, cheaper products can be slathered in paint or covered up with patterned paper, but spending a little more to get beautiful, natural wood can be well worth it in the end. This apartment, with photos from Hey!Cheese, embraces the beautiful grain, variations, and sheen of wood throughout the space, for a gorgeous, simple design that is truly timeless.

As soon as you walk in, you’re immediately met with wood everywhere you turn.

A flat panel television is mounted into a wood paneled wall, suspended above a floating wooden entertainment center.

The different woods around the home don’t match so well that you feel like you’re in some kind of wooden cage. Rather, the different grains and slight variations in color make the room feel warm and clean.

The subtle patterns throughout the wood designs, like the cool door in this image, keep things a lot more interesting and contemporary.

While the designer did not go so far as to create a wooden sofa, the neutral brown color still blends with the rest of the decor.

Where we don’t see wood, we find a lot of white, helping to reflect sunlight and keep the whole atmosphere light and breezy.

The funky white light fixtures are especially interesting and might make you feel like you need to, dare we say, whip it.

Whip it, good.

We love the look of art gently leaning against a surface. It’s a little less stuffy than wall hanging, plus it makes it easy to switch out pieces when the mood strikes.

Bringing a kids room into such simplicity can be a bit of a challenge, but the bright colors actually play nicely against the wood surfaces.

At night, the lighting from above reflects off the nearly-white wood floors.

This cool custom room divider marries the look of light wood and white. It keeps the kitchen separate from the dining and living rooms, but doesn’t close anything off.

A reflective backsplash makes the narrow kitchen seem bigger and super modern.

Brightly colored kids toys and books are easy to tuck away in sophisticated cabinetry.

The bedroom is simple and functional.

It includes sleek modern blinds and an inspiring workspace.

More built in storage reduces clutter.

And even offers space for a study partner.

Trendy Home with Super Unique Staircase

Wed, 03.09.2014 - 18:30

Sometimes all it takes is one interesting focal point to take an otherwise simple interior and make it something really special. In this modern home, visualizer Pavel Voytov has created a space that is welcoming and comfortable while showcasing a unique and gorgeous staircase. In addition to the staircase and living area, the bedrooms designed for this home make creative use of color and utilize simple, functional furniture that would make anyone feel at home.

Here we can see clearly how the staircase seems to float and bend up from the floor, making it appear more like art than function.

Simple, modern furniture like a modular gray sofa and suspended light fixtures contribute to the atmosphere.

From this angle we can see how the stairs seem to emerge seamlessly from the floor, in the same rich red wood.

Moving away from the staircase we can see the open floorplan of the kitchen and dining area, complete with its own modified Eames chairs.

The two-person breakfast bar is perfect for a quick bite.

In this first bedroom, a creative blue wall treatment adds a special warmth.

An awesome bookshelf sits behind the bed but manages to disappear in plain view because of its cool angular design.

The ultramodern ceiling fans are also amazingly unique.

A vintage rug completes the room for a real lived-in feel.

This bright bedroom takes full advantage of its huge windows.

A colorful duvet gives the space just a hint of the tropics.

For a more neutral route, this bedroom uses deep blues, dark mauves, and simple natural wood floors.

Suspended book nooks are practical yet stylish.

The way the subtle purple in the platform bed matches the office chair for a cohesive design.

This kid’s room could easily transition to a trendy kid’s room, with its awesome Warhol-inspired accent wall and breezy windows.

A study area tucked behind a bookcase can keep sleep and work separate, which is key to a clear mind.

The bookcase itself is so creative that it doubles as a wall divider and a bit of artistic flair.

Contemporary Villa With Splashing Colors and Courtyard

Tue, 02.09.2014 - 17:35

Interiors with a monochromatic slant certainly have their place in contemporary design. But the bold use of bright colors in this beautiful villa in La Baule, in the South Brittany region of France, makes an argument for fewer grays. Take a look inside this home in these photos from Steven Baconnais and you’ll see what we mean.

Immediately, this sunken living room creates an amazing lounging area with plenty of brightly color cushions.

A central chartreuse coffee table is just a bit whimsical.

The use of colorful pillows breaks up the otherwise monotonous fade from dark gray walls to gray sofa to dark tiled floor.

We can also begin to see the African influence in this home with the traditional masks on the walls of this seating nook.

The playful central light fixture disperses flattering rays and whimsy once the sun goes down.

It would be so easy to nestle into one of these cozy corners for a chat or a nap.

The home itself it also beautiful with wide sliding doors opening out onto a shaded patio.

Outside, bright red molded chairs stand out for sitting.

The chairs are even designed with a clever built-in table, the perfect size for a coffee and croissant.

In the bedrooms, the African style becomes even more prominent.

Here a unique zebra print wall treatment is bold but not dizzying.

This organize lacquered mask may not be entirely authentic but it adds a special personality to the room.

In a smaller bedroom, we continue to see African influence, here in a patchy duvet.

This room has its own private entrance to the courtyard as well.

In the dining area, cool modern style dominates starting with a white and chrome table with lucite-accented chairs.

A red floor lamp reminds us that in this home, we’re never too far from color.

A breakfast bar makes good use of a fairly small kitchen area.

Stainless steel backsplash is wildly contemporary.

And bright burgundy accent wall makes this French kitchen feel more than welcoming.

Greenhouse windows make for a very pleasant morning, even if you’re doing dishes.

That beautiful burgundy also carries over in this upstairs study.

A cool accessory over the door frame harkens to someplace exotic but doesn’t require any real construction.

Cute decorative lanterns flank a narrow, but modern desk.

This upstairs room would be the perfect place to sit with a great book and a mug of something warm.

In the bath, a warm mustardy yellow is cheerful yet modern.

Little elements like a small hamper and hidden elephant sculpture ensure that African themes pulls through.

Finally, an upstairs deck is gorgeously comfortable for entertaining.

A vintage rocking chair meshes with newer furniture and even a surprisingly large cactus.

An outdoor bar area will surely attract the neighbors.

Gauzy curtains let you feign privacy for outdoor dinner parties.

Another outdoor area is shaded by a clever collapsible umbrella.

Contemporary Apartment Design with Classical Features (Floor Plans Included)

Mon, 01.09.2014 - 17:36

Even the simplicity of modern design, with its clean lines and minimalistic colors, can become overwhelming when overused.

In this private St. Petersburg apartment, architect and designer Natalia Ozerova has taken some of those modern elements and added classical, decadent flourishes. The result is a beautiful, modern apartment that has a taste of old world classic design.

In this first image from the living area, we are automatically drawn to the statues places around the room, even with an ancient Greek-style column as an end table.

Notice that the statues flank the most modern items in the room — a flat screen television and desktop computer.

The slouchy gray sofa has its own modern appeal without the harsh firmness that some contemporary styles can have.

Floor to ceiling bookshelves leave plenty of room for displaying books or knick knacks, so that they become their own kind of artwork.

Another statue is displayed proudly on the mantle alongside line drawings of the St. Petersburg neighborhood.

A simple dining area with sunlight streaming in from corner windows is a perfect retreat at any time of day.

The unique light fixture over the dining table, seen here close up, contrasts with the more classical elements, including the bust to the left.

The master bedroom features an impressive accent wall with a massive relief design that makes you feel as if you’ve stepped into a palace.

Even though the television may seem out of place, the tiled wall treatment leaves a perfect space for it, so it manages to fit in anyway.

A cushioned bumper around the edge of the platform bed makes things a bit cozier.

The massive walk-in closet is a contemporary twist on an ancient feature.

Two doors let you easily slip into the bathroom or the main room from the closet.

The bathroom itself is entirely modern with slick marble walls and deep porcelain basins.

But here we see that the classical influence has made it in here, too, with a statue peering down from a built-in shelf.

The room makes the most of a smaller space with a deep tub and shower in addition to his and hers sinks.

Large custom sofas sit on slightly raised platforms and offer plenty of comfortable seating.

The use of whites and neutrals really open up the main room.

A side table doubles as hidden storage.

The neutral theme carries over into the simple kitchen.

Simple padded blocks can be seats or footstools, or stacked out of the way when extra space is necessary.

A simple workspace can be inspirational for a creative mind.

Minimalist details like the wall clock make this design unique.

A built-in table is useful and beautiful.

It does not get much more simple that a raised cushion for a bed.

The texture of the platform also stands in beautiful contrast with the smooth charcoal closet doors.

For a pop of personality, this room has a Freddie Mercury themed mural.

Lighting recessed in the floor is modern and subtle.

Mirrored bathroom walls make a small space seem huge.

Here, a white reading light blends seamlessly into the wall.

Even the bed sits on a floating platform.

The frosted glass here separates rooms and can easily slide open.

Bedrooms can be spares and small where there is this much design at work.

The angles on these chairs make you forget they are all white.

Fresh Delightfully Modern Interiors From A Polish Architectural Studio

Wed, 27.08.2014 - 17:10

In this first home, we can see the interior immediately come to life with the Banksy-inspired mural in the living room.

Another wall has personal photos on display in a way that looks a bit haphazard, but ultimately adds an important personal touch to the modern space.

Moving to the dining area and kitchen, we can get a real sense of the modern, sleek design style with lots of black and white features.

In the center of the dining table, an herb garden adds a splash of green while also serving a very practical purpose.

The smooth black cabinetry manages to reflect light just enough that it doesn’t make the space feel too enclosed.

And a small en suite bath maintains the home’s style.

The next interior takes the white palette even further.

Ultra-modern sofas are starkly angular.

While a unique architectural element makes it look as though you could unzip the window for an even more panoramic view.

That element carries over into the bedroom, where a cozy platform bed sits nestled into the wall.

The third home uses indoor greenery to great effect with a massive planting that doubles as a room divider.

The dining set is beautiful in its wood and neutral simplicity.

The stair case uses suspension wires, letting the home stay open and giving anyone ascending a heavenly feeling.

In the kitchen, a small breakfast table and heavy slab countertop benefit from streams of natural light.

The next home we’ll look at makes an amazing feature out of a home library, hiding away behind a beautiful wood wall, or putting it on display when it’s in use.

In another example of the hidden bookshelf, this design makes it easy to entertain when the work area can be tucked away out of sight.

Modern wood chairs are molded to be comfortable without upholstery.

A custom wall lets the television and media storage sit completely out of the way without using heavy furniture.

This space age bathroom makes use of a sharply angled ceiling.

Downstairs, a silvery gray sofa could be just as home on the Starship Enterprise as it is in this cool, futuristic home.

A chrome hood for the stove and geometric countertop are unique focal points for the small kitchen.

A triangular dining table is just another quirk in this creative home.

In this space conscious home, the bookshelves are never tucked away.

The clean lines and simple furniture leave plenty of space for a living area, small dining table, and kitchen area.

Creating lamps can be bent or swung around easily to give light where it’s needed.

And a cozy breakfast bar is the perfect place to start a great day.

This living room, dominated by wooden cabinets that match the lovely floor accents is stylishly retro.

This simple home has everything in its place, but nothing too wild.

You may never want to leave this spacious bedroom with a deep platform bed and cozy reading nook.

It’s the perfect place to unwind or simply be alone with your thoughts.

A similar bedroom makes use of a little less space and features aerodynamic chairs and cool bedside lights.

Plus a little built-in fireplace as an added bonus.

The final interior uses splashes of bright yellow to a sunny, perky effect.

From throw pillows to light fixtures.

The bookshelf is prominent but simple.

And the dining room uses mismatched chairs for extra playfulness.

Interior Design Close To Nature: Rich Wood Themes And Indoor Vertical Gardens

Tue, 26.08.2014 - 17:16

Beautiful interior design can make a space open, comfortable, and welcoming. When a home is beautiful and impeccably furnished, hours and days can go by before you even want to consider leaving. But nature has its own comforting capabilities, from a cool summer’s breeze to the oxygenating properties of plants. These designs in this post take the most soothing elements of nature and incorporating them into gorgeous, modern interiors that include rich, natural wood and living indoor gardens, similar to some of those we’ve seen before.

First up is a unique space from a designer who goes by the handle hitman317.

By including greenery throughout this modern space, the designer adds both color and texture to the room.

The unique wood paneling, which positions the plans perpendicular to the wall itself, is unusual and very visually interesting.

The design even gives us a peek of the outdoor greenery as well.

Wood cabinetry stays in the same color family as door frames and even the dining table for a cozy feeling.

A massive vertical garden in the dining room is welcoming for guests and an instant conversation piece.

Plenty of sunlight lets the plants keep growing, even indoors.

The next space comes to us from designer Mariya Vergezova. She calls it WOOD_home.

This chalet in the Carpathian Mountains uses a spectrum of natural colors and a mixture of fabrics.

The resulting atmosphere is incredibly warm, even against cold, snowy nights.

A wooden stair case emerges seamlessly from a wood floor, making the home feel like a growing organism itself.

The wall garden plays off the green pattern on the creatively decorated throw rug, which has tribal influences.

Eames chairs always add a classic touch.

Warm overhead lighting is perfect for setting a cheerful mood.

The space is open, with high ceilings and low sofas, but ultimately it feels safe.

The third featured interior is from Visualizer Yo Dezeen.

The feeling in this space is decidedly cool and a mainly masculine.

A cool glass coffee table has a distinctly 80′s feel.

The vertical garden is a special surprise in this room.

The fourth room was styled by Visualizer Ilya Tovstonog.

This modern home features a gas fire tucked inside an awesome steel wall, complete with a firewood stack on one side. The wood juxtaposes the hanging garden on the other side of the fireplace, giving us a glimpse into the various phases of a plant’s life.

The bedroom uses a large dark wood accent wall that takes the place of a headboard.

The television sits in a custom wall and can be easily hidden away, for a technology-free sanctuary.

The cozy modern arms chairs in an oatmeal color are begging to be collapsed into at the end of a long day.

A marble wall reflects light and feels luxurious.

The walk-in closet has a dressing area and class doors for an open, airy feeling.

Finally, the breakfast bar and small kitchen play wood off of marble, using their complementary colors and textures to beautiful effect.

Bright and Colorful Kids Room Designs with Whimsical Artistic Features

Mon, 25.08.2014 - 18:03

Designing a beautiful room for a child, or children, can be tricky. The best designers, as evidenced in these images from Archivizer, are able to combine the aesthetic preferences of stylish parents with the needs of a child who may have not even formed his own sense of style yet. These rooms are colorful, but never garish, with plenty of childlike whimsy to capture your imagination.

The first room have uses a tree theme to create a really fun vibe.

The tree theme runs through the room, most notably in the large tree cut out and the tree print carpet.

A pale yellow wall and wardrobe lends color without being dizzying.

A whimsical tree decal, complete with cartoon rain clouds, adds a few more colors and a lot of personality.

This next room is a little more subdued, but still features plenty of vibrant colors.

Striped walls and cubby beds make for a perfect retreat for busy kids.

And separate seating and study areas even make sharing a room not so bad.

This spacious kids area has more than just beds, tarting with a large play and study area for smaller kids.

Chalkboard walls at kid height inspire all kinds of creativity.

And a climbing area offers a place to get some of that energy out.

When it comes time to rest, kids can retreat to the bedroom area, which features colorful bunk beds.

Overnight guests can comfortably crash on this electric pink futon.

Though this girls room has more subdued colors, its just as stylish and fun.

A pretty brand pattern on the walls is welcoming but not too bright.

The small study area can easily grow with the girl who lives here.

This study room doesn’t try to wedge in any beds, instead creating a comfortable sanctuary for school work or socializing.

Matching sofas and desks are perfect for sisters while a vanity will surely come in handy for teens.

What this room lacks in square footage it makes up for in whimsy.

Playful triangle patterns on the wallpaper are reminiscent of flags dancing on the wind.

This cozy yellow desk chair and cubby holes can make any homework appealing.

Of course, not all kids have taste that veers towards the silly, as this ultra modern kids room clearly shows us.

With subdued tree pattern walls and a tribal-inspired rug, the eclectic design is fun but grown up.

For a wild take on a boys room, check out this space with bean bag chairs and Transformer wall art.

The blue wallpaper in this girls room makes it a big dark, so white furnishings and pink and purple accents brighten things up.

In this play space, you find cozy chairs, and even an indoor jungle gym.

The button pattern rug is just precious enough.

This room proves that you don’t need a lot of wild colors to be kid-friendly.

Slatted cabinetry is country chic.

Compact House Made from Affordable Materials

Fri, 22.08.2014 - 18:24

Designer Anway Aljugrey from Inxide Studio has designed a modern, compact house that can meet all the needs of a person or couple with significantly less waste than a larger home would offer. The KOTAK Haus featured in this post is made from affordable materials that are both easy to maintain and will withstand the test of time, aging to become even more interesting looking. Inside, the home is not large, but sunlight and creative use of space make it feel open and comfortable.

The exterior the home is raw concrete, which is both simple and modern.

This creative deck features opens completely for sun and fresh air inside.

Upstairs are more sliding windows for an interior space that feels extremely spacious.

This cutaway view clearly delineates the different spaces within the house from the downstairs living area and bedroom to the upstairs workspace.

From this angle we can see the simplicity of the bedroom, a perfect nook for a mattress and nothing more.

Stairs lead up to a rooftop patio with endless possibilities.

The living room is just the right size for relaxing.

The lack of interior walls may feel precarious at first but ultimately makes things more comfortable.

Recessed lighting over the sofa makes up for a lack of windows in the living area.

A ladder leads up to the lofted workspace, a much more space efficient choice than stairs.

Wood, brick, and caged lightbulbs give the space an industrial feel.

Even the bathroom is left a bit open with the use of slatted walls.

From overhead we can more easily see how no space is wasted in the design.

The back deck is perfect for dining or just hanging out.

Ultra Sleek Private Home with Incredible Architecture

Thu, 21.08.2014 - 16:24

From the exterior through the bedrooms and private wine cellar, this modern home from architect Guido Costantino is spectacular. The natural materials in use throughout the home, including slabs of unfinished concrete and beautiful wood floors, play with the idea natural vs. industrial to great effect while each piece of furniture is just enough and never too much.

From any angle, this home is impressive.

The outdoor pool is the ultimate indulgence.

The simple concrete patio surrounding the pool ties into the concrete features we will see inside.

Even the pool chairs are perfectly minimal in their design.

A main dining room has seating for eight, but feels comfortably casual.

Though mostly adorned in neutrals, the few pops of color throughout are careful and effective.

The simplicity of this living room sofa, with its steel frame and thin cushions, is spectacular.

This photos truly captures the way the architect has used elements like glass, concrete, and wood together in a harmonious way.

Light wood flooring is warm in an otherwise dark home.

An area rug in the same color as the wood adds a fun element of texture.

This workspace is far from expansive, but there are few distractions.

A creative floor lamp offers lighting for the times when sun isn’t streaming through the massive windows.

The use of different levels makes it easy to distinguish rooms without the use of walls.

When in use, the television appears like a carefully framed work of art.

From this angle, it feels as though the house goes on forever.

A concrete wall and mantle add interesting texture to the living room.

A teal bolt pillow could be modern sculpture or creative seating.

Inside, we immediately see the minimalist influence with plenty of open floor space.

A small stone collection is a likely spot for a hidden gas fire.

A central staircase seems to emerge from, and lift towards, nowhere.

A central concrete bearing wall is casually unfinished, but the effect is striking.

A nearly invisible railing attached to the wall provides a little stability on the floating stairs.

The kitchen, with a long breakfast bar, is entirely welcoming for guests.

Expansive counters and a glass top range are begging to be used.

The clever overhead lighting is necessary but so perfectly matched to the room that it nearly disappears.

With the kitchen opening to the living room, this home would be incredible for entertaining.

Simple shades can pull down to prevent harsh glare from the walls of windows.

There is plenty of kitchen space to have a few cooks, or staff, moving about.

In one bedroom, we find a truly awesome sunken bed design and cozy shag rug, perfect for dogs and humans alike.

Upstairs, a glass divider acts as a simple railing for the balcony area.

More concrete features tie upstairs to down.

The two-story windows offer views of both the back yard….

…and the living room.

A small step up indicates a room divid upstairs as well.

In the basement, the perfect den has a sofa that’s just as charming but a perhaps a bit cozier than the one upstairs.

The use of space under the stairs gives the basement a warmth it may otherwise lack, with no windows.

Here we get just a peek of the comfy downstairs retreat.

And we get to see the real origins of the amazing staircase.

A private wine cellar…

…and private gym leave this modern home wanting for nothing.

This kitchen really brightens things up with open cabinets of sunny yellow for a distinctly modern vibe.

The reddish orange accents in this kitchen, and the creative sunken dining table, give the kitchen a really retro feel.

Another neutral option lets the practical elements of the kitchen itself all but disappear, highlighting beautiful views and open windows.

Say Yes to Yellow: 4 Apartments That Flaunt Yellow Accents

Mon, 18.08.2014 - 15:45

When dealing with modern design, it is easy to fall victim to the tyranny of neutrals. A room all in white seems so clean and chic. But when designers are able to include a few splashes of marvelous bright color, that is when a room can really come alive. Take a look at the four apartments featured here from Yo Dezeen, AvA Studiomg design uk, and AR Studio.

Our first burst of yellow comes to us from the design team at Yo Dezeen.

In a home with largely classic architecture, adding an irregular yellow panel is shockingly modern .

The designers have also pulled the color in by painting this of-the-moment skull in the same shade, uniting the two sides of the room.

Other major features in the apartment tend towards neutral, starting with this gray sectional that looks super comfortable.

The yellow panel sits off center from the television, making the visual much more interesting.

Without the yellow paneling, this image makes it easy to see how otherwise plain the room might feel.

Massive shelving units add a bit of practicality while the black entryway nearly disappears into the wall.

The molding in the walls acts as its own frame for the yellow skull.

In another marriage of classic and modern, this very vintage looking dining table pairs with ultra modern lucite chairs.

Here’s a perspective that completely eliminates the yellow, for a chilled out dining experience.

Trendy light fixtures finish our look at this apartment.

The second apartment we’ll look at comes from AvA Studio.

Rather than focusing on the walls, this team has brought this mustard yellow color in using furniture, starting with this awesome minimalist chair.

The yellow chair and throw play into the idea of gold on the wall without matching up exactly.

A cushy gray bedroom contrasts nicely with another mustard chair.

Here, yellow makes for a sunny morning every morning with this bright headboard and bed combination.

Our third Say Yes to Yellow apartment comes from the design tea at mg design uk.

It is interesting to note this apartment also uses yellow for upholstery and pillows, but also brings in a bit in the side table and wall art.

Despite the multiple appearances, we never feel overwhelmed by the bright color.

The varied textures, from the plush rug to the cushy sofa and the shiny coffee table make this home feel comfortable and welcoming.

And every detail, including these adorable bird sculptures, has been accounted for.

Finally, we come to a big modern space with designs from AR Studio.

The use of yellow here is quite subtle. The treatment of it makes it feel much more neutral that you might expect.

Mostly, we see simple gray and black.

Careful placement of yellow pillows draws the eye for just a moment.

And yellow dining chairs are perfect for welcoming guests.

The soft texture makes the mustard color pretty and inviting.

Simple Yet Modern Interiors from 2 B Group

Fri, 15.08.2014 - 16:47

When it comes to modern design ideas, it can be a struggle to find the balance between beautiful, calming minimalism and brilliant, colorful interiors that inspire creativity. The team at 2 B Group has managed to find that balance in so many of their designs. Here, we will showcase a number of interiors that they have done, adding important details from the gorgeously subtle to the attention-grabbing.

The first apartment is none too large at 350 square meters, but still packs plenty of colorful design elements.

The living room has multiple funky focal points starting with a blue velvet sofa and a mishmash of prints on the rug.

The open dining area features some clean choices, like a plain white table and simple wooden dining chairs.

But these are offset by funky artwork, like a bright green hand sculpture.

Choosing white in this room is perfect since it is able to reflect sun from the large windows and make the space seem more open.

The home also includes a creative child’s room as well, featuring elements from favorite films including Wall-E and Despicable Me.

The room has plenty of space for studying and playing.

As well as a perfect kid’s bed.

Wall decals add an element of fun that can easily be swapped out when the child outgrows his current tastes.

Finally, a super modern bath is a relaxing retreat after a long day.

The second apartment we are featuring is even smaller at only 190 square meters, but it never feels lacking.

The child’s room in this house has a unique lofted bed area as well as a sofa for recreation.

A study nook creates space for homework without taking up too much room.

An overhead view really lets us see how the designers utilize every square centimeter to great effect.

In the parents’ bedroom, the use of neutral colors creates a comfy, zen atmosphere.

While a custom shelving unit can hide the television at a moment’s notice for a good night’s sleep.

A luxury soaking tub and halo lighting around the mirror give the bath an ultramodern feel.

It also features a separate dressing area.

This third apartment we are featuring comes in at 200 square meters.

The modular sofa in the living room is awesome for entertaining since the pieces can be flipped, stacked, and moved around like a puzzle to find the perfect configuration on any given night.

The designers manage to make wood paneled walls modern again by mixing tones in the living area.

The addition of lime green accents feels just shy of kitschy and instead turns playful, particularly when pulled into the child’s room.

A custom bed and amazing animal cutouts adorning the walls make this kid’s room like something out of a parenting fairytale.

A cozy story are in the corner could easily become a study nook as the child grows up.

The spacious bathroom gives plenty of counterspace for him and her.

And has fixtures that work for the whole family.

The rest of the images in the post were hand selected for a cross section of 2 B Group’s most stunning designs, starting with this earthy living room.

Dark colors and minimal accessories keep the look from beeing too fussy or girly.

Sleek sofas in this room face an incredible stone accent wall while the textures of the fabric on the red chairs beg to be touched.

This simple bedroom would be a perfect retreat for guests.

Shelving isn’t always stylish, but when it’s built for your room, it is.

The unfinished wood in this window seat gives the room’s atmosphere an extra splash of bohemian.

City views are the focus of this bedroom with its awesome window.

This bedroom is funky but not crazy with lime green accents and an enviable walk in closet.

Hillside California Home with Gorgeous Outdoor Spaces

Thu, 14.08.2014 - 15:54

The Los Angeles-based team at Studio William Hefner create amazing architecture, intriguing interiors, and lovely landscaping. The entirety of their talents are on display in this gorgeously modern hillside home that screams of California style.

It’s no mystery why this location was chosen with its endless views of the valley below.

An infinity pool adds a serene glamour to the outdoor space while there is just enough grass for feeling it between your toes – even during a drought.

The open house with its low, modern design takes full advantage of the views, making walls out of windows.

Beautiful dark red wood ceilings bring even more luxury to this bedroom that opens up to the yard.

Building materials are more central to the design than color with plain white walls and natural finished wood playing major roles.

Seating spills out onto the patio for the ultimate in entertaining.

Incorporating the homeowner’s art is the best way to add color and life.

Simple furniture in luxurious leather is polished but not distracting from the beautiful simplicity of the home.

Skylight let in the California sun nearly every day of the year.

The location of the house offers privacy that the design does not.

A simple but complete gourmet kitchen has space enough for a large group of breakfast lovers.

A modern bathroom have windows as wall as well, but still manages plenty of mirrors.

The contrast between these two spaces is apparent, but both are their own version of zen.

Using cacti and stones is a good water saving method for the arid California climate.

And of course, no California home is complete without a private driveway and plenty of parking.

Stylish Family Home Features Bright Tropical Colors

Wed, 13.08.2014 - 17:16

While many contemporary designers use neutrals, particularly blacks and whites, to great effect, family homes can feel a bit sterile without some color. This design from the team at Pavel Voytov utilizes some simple neutral elements but is not afraid to take on bright colors like lime green, purple, and sky blue.

The open and airy living room gives a great sense of how the designer uses bright colors throughout the home, starting with the incredible coffee table.

The sofas here feature clean lines but they’ve got a slouchy comfort to them as well.

Using the same green color for accents is playful without being too kitschy.

A neat overhead light can swivel on demand.

The decor also uses plenty of wood from the cool dark choice on the interior columns to the lighter tones on the floor.

Putting this wild pop art in the stairway means plenty of people see it, but it isn’t too distracting.

This kid’s room is clean and playful.

The rust coloring in the bed and curtains is an unexpected match with the sky blue bookcase.

A low storage cabinet will get plenty of use while also dividing the sleeping area from the study space.

For the grown ups, the designer has gone with a much more neutral palette.

Instead of color, the room plays with texture from the smooth closet doors to the knobby rug beside the bed, which itself is draped in a soft, cozy comforter.

A wide window is perfectly framed with a relaxing seating area for grown up chats.

For an older girl, cool purple tones are feminine but not girly.

Plenty of shelving is a must.

The button pattern on the duvet is just whimsical enough.

In the bathroom we can see more fun patterns in this Scandinavian-inspired wallpaper.

Juxtaposing the pattern with white fixtures and gray walls keeps it from being too loud.

But the cool, neutral bathroom is welcoming as well.

A shower stall is just big enough while a neat wall treatment makes it feel almost like a jungle.

The light fixtures are also notable with their interesting pinched design.

Finally we’re back at the kitchen with its lime green accents to tie everything together and create a perfect gathering space.
