There is no question that how you start your day can set the tone for how the rest of your day goes. While our mothers have long told us that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, too many modern families rush through it or skip it altogether. But with a beautiful place to drink a cup of coffee and nibble on something nutritious, it becomes that much easier to start your day with clarity and calm. The breakfast nooks featured in this post all show different ways that you can bring this kind of beauty and tranquility into your own morning.
Architect: Marmol Radziner
This expansive kitchen leaves plenty of room for a large and comfortable breakfast nook. The deeply colored glossy wood is enveloping while large windows open up into nature for a unique, charming experience.
Visualizer: Vlad Muresan
Of course, you don’t need an enormous kitchen to reap the benefits of a breakfast nook. Here, a little splash of sunny yellow and a couple of stools make for the perfect place to start the morning.
Designer: Erin King Interiors
A highly modern take on the breakfast nook, the pattern on the bench cushions is eye catching while plenty of natural light sets the scene for a beautiful morning.
In a home with less space, creative storage is a must. This breakfast nook has carefully designed seating that slips underneath a fold out table when not in use. A lack of space does not have to mean sacrificing something so lovely as a breakfast nook if you know how to get creative.
Visualizer: Vlad Muresan
In an open concept design it can be difficult to find places to escape. This breakfast nook not only has a bit of whimsy with its “EAT” table but also allows a moment of retreat with its cozy recessed bench area.
Designer: NC2 Architecture
The bright white design of this kitchen and nook is the pinnacle of modern. Chrome and wood accents complete the stunning, chic look.
Visualizer: Nghia Vu
Although this kitchen doesn’t have as much space as some of the other on this list, with the right modern furniture and layout, it is still possible to squeeze in a comfortable breakfast nook.
Less of a nook, this breakfast area is more of an extension of the kitchen counter, making it both cute and practical in case of a need for extra prep space.
Visualizer: Victor Serdobintsev
White and wood kitchens always have a special air of sophistication and this one is no exception. The creative white wire chairs are especially intriguing in this design.
Visualizer: 4th Light
You don’t need a family to make good use of a breakfast nook. Space for two is romantic and practical. The unique kitchen bar stools are idea for a grown up design like this one.
Visualizer: Svitlana Petelko
While many of the nooks featured here are decidedly modern, this heavier romantic style is also lovely. It is easy to imagine spending an afternoon tea nestled into this particular nook.
Visualizer: Ilkin Gurbanov
Another chalkboard wall and plenty of shelving give this bright, modern breakfast nook a creative and playful feel that works perfectly with the bright green kitchen backsplash.
Designer: Feldman Architecture
There is something so naturally clean about the lemony yellow color that this nook uses as an accent. It would certainly wake you up nicely, as long as there was some coffee to go with the color.
The pendant lighting and colorful art clearly demonstrate that this breakfast nook is a personal triumph and a place that the homeowner wants to spend time.

The design elements in this kitchen and nook are a throwback to the interiors of the 1970s. With a brown patterned bench, avocado green cabinetry and a space-age table, it’s all the style with just a touch of the kitsch.
Visualizer: Daria Aleinikova
The use of neutral colors for the nook seating as well as the glass table are set off by the eye-catching striped wallpaper, which brings interest into an otherwise subdued design.
Visualizer: Alesya Kasianenko
Finally, we return to a more subtle nook with classic white and wood choices, pretty pendant light and just a few hints of luscious green .

In front of the couch lies the coffee table; to the side the end table. Small, handy and often overlooked, the end table can add a point of interest or finishing touch to your living room’s interior. Have a lounge full of travel souvenirs? Place your latest read on a mandala table to relive old times. Can’t be bothered reaching that extra metre?

Faceted Iron And Wood End Table: Find something more sturdy, with this faceted iron and wood version. A stunning end table (or even cheeky ottoman), it’s your lounge’s next understated art piece.
White Multi-Way End Table: Melamine-coated and water-resistant, this table works around your décor – not your decor around it. Lay it in on its side beside a low sofa, or stand it high to reach arm level.
Deer-Shaped Side Table: The brushed brass-finish horns of this ibex make themselves known in your lounge. Stand this end table in full view of the doorway, to display its tempered glass top.

While many people might dream of making their home in an expansive mansion or countryside estate, that’s simply not the reality for most people, particularly those that choose to live in cities. Urban life comes with many advantages — cultural, culinary, creative — but it often does not come with a lot of space. Instead of succumbing to a lifestyle that is cramped and uncomfortable, Ori Systems has come up with a much better idea. With their creative bed console, a small space can be simultaneously a bedroom, living room, work area, and closet.
With just a push of a button, the bed slides away, leaving room for other activities. The result is an apartment that is more functional and beautiful than any combination of furnishings could be.

If you’re looking for a material theme that exhibits both brightness and warmth, the classic combination of light wood and white is always a great choice. But what about accent colors? This post looks at two homes that pair their wood-heavy interiors with pastel accents to create a comfortable springtime atmosphere. The interior first uses garden-inspired tones like green, yellow, and lilac. The second interior keeps things a little more minimal with a muted lavender paired alongside a darker green. Do you have a favorite pastel color pairing? We’d love to hear your top picks in the comment section.
Visualizer: Ekaterina Domracheva
This apartment creates a springtime vibe by setting pastels over a backdrop of warm light-hued wood paneling. Soft greens, purples, and yellows channel the relaxing organic qualities of a fresh garden breeze, while certain elements – like the white kitchen – take on a more hardline modern minimalist attitude.
And what a unique dining room! Rather than opting for a bench seat, this designer instead chose to outfit one side of the table with a comfortable sofa. A pair of dining room pendants round out the set.
While white and wood kitchens are a fairly common theme these days, this one stands out thanks to its geometric backsplash.
Spring green chairs and lilac kitchen bar stools continue the color theme from the living room even though the kitchen itself lacks bright colors.
Tucked away in another room, this handsome little home office brings a splash of color thanks to the bright green Eames Group Executive Chair.
How cool is that owl wall light? It’s useful but also adds to the whimsical tree-house theme of the room. Check out our owl home decor compilation for more neat owl-themed decorations.
The corner hosts an adorable creativity station outfitted with seating from the IKEA Mammut Chair collection. Kids can doodle and create at the table and then hang their masterpieces on the cork board accent wall for display.
Visualizer: Svoya Studio
This second home is a comfortable apartment in Kiev. It shares the same pastel hues and wood-and-white interior theme as the previous example, but with a few minor changes. This home uses darker accents and dramatic mood lighting to create a more intimate atmosphere.
The home makes a huge impression with its unique accessories, like the unique floor lamps and the indoor swing.
But small and surprising details hide around every corner. Even the step stool finds a decorative purpose, serving as a perch for an Eames Bird replica duo.
But there are still elements in position to brighten the space: glossy surfaces like the tiled doors, smartly-positioned track lighting, and a selection of indoor house plants like this potted rubber plant.

Studio apartments are such a good source of interior design inspiration – the ideas found in these space conscious designs often come in useful outside of the context of apartment design, translating easily to other contexts like single rooms or open plan areas. This post looks at three studio apartments, each one representing a different interior design style. The first one is a straightforward minimalist space, the second is a charming Scandinavian-inspired theme, and the third studio takes a different approach with a dark and moody design with luxurious elements. Which one is your favorite?
Visualizer: Marta Szkudlarek
Let’s start with something simple. It’s difficult to foster a welcoming environment when it comes to strict minimalism, but this apartment pulls it off thanks to its bright white walls and warm wood elements – and of course the addition of quirky elements like the eclectic dining stools and the occasional modern art print.
The wire bar stools are the work of Hee Welling, available from Danish design house Hay. The curvy stools are available here. In the absence of decoration, these unique kitchen counter stools offer an abundance of character.
Visualizer: Hoàng Long
This next apartment features the same mostly-white theme as the last one, but this space strays far from minimalism. Its cheerful Scandinavian-inspired decor theme makes great use of subtle patterns, eclectic artwork, and various materials like exposed brick and whitewashed wood.
Refined and stylish, these Scandinavian style chairs don’t complicate the dining arrangement but still add just enough decorative flair thanks to their rustic wood legs.
While wall clocks aren’t the “must have” investment they used to be, they’re always helpful in the kitchen area where hands tend to be too busy with food to check a phone.
This dining room pendant, on the other hand, really makes the space. It’s a unique piece that seems to take equal inspiration from vintage and modern motifs.
And thanks to the abundant sunlight, the indoor house plants are able to flourish. They add an outdoorsy element to the home that complements the natural wood nicely.
Like the dining room, the bedroom also enjoys a little creative lighting – unique bedroom pendants always create a striking focal point. This dreamy cloud-like model is available from IKEA or right here.
Architect: Zrobym Architects
The last home in this studio tour is a little different from the previous two. Where the others were bright and sunny, this space takes a dramatic and almost moody approach. This project by Zrobym Architects occupies a 45 square meter apartment floor plan in Minsk, Belarus, but embraces its compact format with a cozy style that exudes a sense of relaxation.
To keep things looking streamlined, the interior team included a full wall of storage cabinets behind the media center, ensuring that everything has a place to “live”. Three functional areas share this storage space: the office to the left, the central living room, and the bedroom area to the right.
More storage hides in the stairs that lead to the bed, with a larger wardrobe-style cabinet to the right. This taller cabinet also blocks the view from the glass wall that separates the living spaces from the hallway.

Minimalism can get a bad rap. It can conjure images of homes with no character and no personality, focused only on how little is there. But when done right, as is this home from visualizer Oleg Trofimov, minimalism can be beautiful and warm. The house featured in this post has many elements of simplicity, from its odd sofa to its white on white kitchen, but it also has plenty of playfulness. A vertical garden, a colorful children’s room and a number of inviting elements make this house much more than an exercise in design or denial — this house is designed to be a home.
The minimalist design of this home is immediately apparent as you step into the living room. From the geometric beige sofa to the unique floor lamps perched in the corner, clean lines and simplicity abound.
Of course, that vast white wall is not only a design choice. The white expanse allows for movies and TV to be projected, which means that these minimalists do not have to make space in their lives for a flatscreen.
The space is not huge, but the use of white throughout makes the main living area feel enormous. The cream color of the furniture breaks up the white just enough that there is nothing institutional about the design.
The dining area features modern dining chairs that are cushier and more comfortable than the hard backed wood chairs you sat in last Thanksgiving. These types of chairs are not only stylish, they make you want to stay a while.
For another seating option, white kitchen counter stools stand ready underneath a white countertop.
The white kitchens is what beachside dreams are made of — clean and spacious. And we cannot forget the detailed wall texture that unites the dining and kitchen areas with a bit of whimsy.
Speaking of breathing life into the design, a stunning vertical garden at the top of the staircase is impossible to ignore. The greenery is a much needed splash of color and texture, welcoming you to the more intimate bedroom portion of the house.
In the master bedroom, we see a gray color that is not uncommon in minimalist bedrooms— it is cool and simple.
The simple and slim bedroom pendants that dangle from the vaulted ceiling are unique and modern.
Of course, even minimalists have guests at times. The guest room dilemma can be solved without sacrificing the minimalist aesthetic if you know what kind of furniture and design to invest in. This home features a surprisingly modern murphy bed.
While four poster beds may not be the most minimalist, this design is simple and fun without skimping on kid-friendly decor.
In the bathroom, carefully chosen elements like unique laundry baskets and a custom storage bench make for a space where the whole family can feel comfortable.
Choosing from a number of available unique faucets it is easy to see how this white on white design stood out.
Even foregoing unique soap and lotion dispensers for simple bottles makes for a non-fussy look.

Sharing an office isn’t always easy – but with the right workspace setup, coexistence is definitely possible. This post looks at a wide variety of offices designed for two occupants, with options ranging from face-to-face to side-by-side arrangements, from minimalist environments to beautifully artistic retreats. You’ll even find a few suggestions for two-person designer desks and stylish chairs to go with! Whether you’re looking to rearrange your home office or want to make your workplace more welcoming, we hope you’ll find a few fresh ideas right here.
Visualizer: IDunic DesignStudio
This home office leaves plenty of space for two. Both workspaces are nicely separated, each with a convenient niche to ensure that neither person will distract the other with their screen.
Visualizer: IDunic DesignStudio
Here’s another nicely separated workspace. The inset lights make it easy to find reference material and office supplies on the shelves up above.
Visualizer: Pavel Vetrov & Aleksandr Zenzura
Here’s another simple back-to-back desk. This arrangement is a great way to avoid getting distracted by what might be happening on the other screen. That’s right – one partner can take a break with a YouTube video without disrupting the others workflow.
Designer: Elayne Barre
This office keeps things simple by keeping only the necessities and the simplest decorations on the shelves. Flowers in vases are a great way to add a little liveliness to the area.
Architect: MCK Architects Photographer: Douglas Frost Photography Visualizer: http://mckarchitects.com/
Wall-mounted desks offer several advantages – they’re easy to clean around, and there are no legs to get in the way of free movement. It’s a win-win.
Visualizer: Patricia Bagienski
Even ordinary wall-mounted sideboards can make nice desks for certain types of work. Those who use only a small laptop or pen and paper don’t often require a large work surface.
Visualizer: RNDR Studio
While this desk isn’t wall-mounted, it still leaves plenty of space beneath for the occupants to slide around and find a good working position.
A book-lover’s dream! This stylish office includes a full library, complete with a rolling ladder to reach the higher volumes. This would definitely be a neat workspace for somebody who takes inspiration from literature or needs to have reference materials on hand at all times.
Visualizer: Alex Schiry
Here’s another great home office that includes an expansive library. The arrangement of the workspaces is also pretty smart – one side is for writing and drafting, and the other for working with a computer.
Designer: Murs & Merveilles
This library draws immediate attention with its vivid colors in contrast to the abundance of minimalist white storage that surrounds.
Designer: Marie Olsson Nylander
Minimalist offices are great for those who find distraction in visual stimulation. But some actually work better surrounded by inspiring sights and objects they love. Some go beyond simple decoration, like the stylish yet useful vintage fan.
Other times, the furniture itself can serve as the aesthetic boost that makes a home office appealing. This pair of Eames style Eiffel Base Wire Chairs are a classic choice.

Interior architecture is another source of decoration that will never come across as clutter. This gorgeous wood-paneled accent wall makes the entire room feel warmer.
Designer: CCS Architecture
Although it’s not a true two-person desk, this workspace still feels connected thanks to their attachment to a central wooden volume. The chairs are from the high-performance Aeron collection by Herman Miller.

Are you looking for a style that feels vintage but still stays in line with modern trends? This industrial style double desk looks and feels current thanks to the popularity of industrial home decor.
Designer: Catalina Estrada
Themed workspaces can help foster a certain mood. This enchanting forest of owls would definitely inspire a sense of whimsy. The desk and storage are both available on Amazon.
Visualizer: Viktoria Tsikhotska
This desert-themed bedroom is subtle but dreamy. When tired of working at the desk, the residents could bring a laptop to the bed, sofa, or even the swinging hammock chair.
This office overlooks a living room but still feels separated thanks to the small containing wall that supports the desk. The chair the person is sitting in is the About A Chair model by Hee Welling.
Visualizer: Marta Yavna
Schoolchildren need organized workspaces too! This adorable bedroom has plenty of room for the young occupant and a study partner. Drawers, shelves, and two adjustable lamps make it easy to focus on the task at hand.
Visualizer: Nido Interiors
Here’s another kid’s room and office combination. The workspace features another version of Hee Welling’s popular About A Chair design, this time with the wooden leg option.
Visualizer: Julian Malik
This very unique dormitory concept outlines the workspace with a border of blue that transitions to plywood walls. The sleeping area is supposed to be in the white portion of the room.
Visualizer: Boom Project
Let’s talk about lighting! This desk occupies a rather dark niche with relaxing inset lighting in the shelves above.
Here’s another office with relaxing lighting, this time just above the bulletin board behind the computers. The bulletin board is a cool accent wall idea for any office – consider opting for one in a nontraditional color to make your space even more unique.
Designer: DKOR Interiors
Colorful accent walls are a great way to separate a workspace from the rest of the room. This one is bright orange, energizing and passionate.
Designer: Christophe Vendel
This office takes a more eclectic approach to its accent wall with plenty of colorful artwork and rows of books beneath. Even the chairs are unpredictable – The Flow Arm Chair by Jean-Marie Massaud takes a simple approach while the Panton S Chair stands out in bright red.
Designer: Project Palermo
Here’s another two-person office with artwork on the feature wall. The color theme is unified with muted tones so each resident can choose their own theme without the end result looking too eclectic.
Designer: Industrial Facility (For Herman Miller)
Let’s close out the post with something a little different – convertible desks that accommodate either sitting or standing. The modern-looking chair is the Herman Miller Mirra 2.

Located in Bangkok, Thailand, the gorgeous Lobster House by Puchong Satirapipatkul is a sprawling residence that showcases distinctive architecture outside and in. It seems to borrow inspiration from the iconic glass houses of the mid century modern era, wrapped in a frame of columns like the classics, and wonderfully clad with on-trend materials. Inside, wide open spaces make this home ideal for entertaining guests but doesn’t lack cozy private spaces to work or relax on quiet days. We hope you enjoy your tour – don’t forget to stop by the comment section to let us know what you think.
Architect: Puchong Satirapipatkul Photographer: Panoramic Studio
The exterior is made up of several distinct volumes, each differentiated by small changes like their offset planes and changing structural treatments. While some areas are enveloped by beams, others are encased in glass. Cool white surfaces transition to details made from wood, slate, and abundant warm brick. These subtle and gradual evolutions give the home a dynamic feeling that varies according to perspective.
The unique layout itself serves a purpose as well, keeping the interior feeling fresh and open while allowing desirable elements – like cool breezes and indirect sunlight – filter through the living spaces unimpeded.
With such extensive communication between indoor and outdoor views, it makes sense to focus on well-formed landscaping without actively obstructing the view outdoors. Sculpted trees like these are a prized possession to the developers of luxury real estate – even big companies, like Apple who caused a stir by gobbling up desirable specimens for its space ship shaped headquarters in Cupertino.
The interior opens to a spectacular double-height living room, crossed by a unique center beam staircase. A wall of windows absolutely lavishes the interior with light. Oversized doors on either end swing open to move the breeze through the interior, seemingly erasing the boundary between outdoors and in.
Located in a wide open hall, the dining room is ideal for entertaining. Guests can easily mingle between the reception area, the dining table, and the expansive wrap-around patio with its surrounding gardens. The focus here is, of course, the spider like chandelier.
These water features aren’t just aesthetic – they also help to passively cool the home as the breeze sweeps across. Here, this handsome pond pulls double duty by cooling the attached veranda and the dining room all at once.
And here’s a quick peek at the private kitchen. Honey-toned wood lends this space a sense of warmth and comfort, the perfect ambiance for an area that traditionally serves as the heart of a home. Residents can enjoy their coffee or tea at the breakfast bar while enjoying the sunrise from the backsplash windows.
With an office like this, who wouldn’t want to work from home? Filled with eclectic decorations and useful supplies, this space is sure to spark the imagination for creative work. There’s even a little daybed tucked in near the window for contemplative breaks from the everyday grind.
Bedrooms remain just as open and airy as the rest of the home. With access to fresh air, unique ceiling fans like this one are a great solution for drawing the inside.
An undeniable classic, 4 poster beds have never gone out of style. This one makes it easy to close the side curtains to soften the light or to shield some of the nighttime breeze.

While a 750 square foot floor plan isn’t exactly restrictive – especially when it comes to apartments with only one bedroom – it’s still compact enough to require a little extra care and attention when it comes to layout, decor, and atmosphere. This post looks at three single bedroom homes that tackle the problem with ease, each one demonstrating its own distinct decorative motif that remains cohesive throughout. The first is a warm and natural space, the second exhibits a touch of industrial decor influence, and the third home goes in a completely different direction with a bold color scheme.
Visualizer: Form 8 studio
Designed for a young bachelor, this Minsk apartment concept measures in at just short of 68 square meters but enjoys an exceptionally open atmosphere thanks to its simple decor and sensible modern furnishings. It’s a practical space but carries no shortage of character thanks to typographic decorations and distinctive contemporary accents throughout.
With such expansive wooden elements, it makes sense to add a touch of greenery as well. Those who travel often might find self watering planters to be a helpful tool.
You’ll notice that the living room not only sticks to strong color, texture, and material themes, but also stays consistent in terms of form – most objects are rounded or otherwise curved for a smooth look.
The modern dining chairs exhibit the same curves as the living room furniture, centered by an open spherical pendant light hanging above.
You’ll notice that the kitchen immediately transitions to a layout more focused on linear forms. Those lovely kitchen bar stools are a nice intermediary between the two styles.
Another difference is that the kitchen goes a little heavier with the industrial influence. The textural concrete walls embrace the kitchen’s darker atmosphere while the recessed lighting makes it more functional.
Sleep takes priority. There are no exciting decorations, bright colors, or extra furnishings to distract attention. Even the bedroom lighting fosters a comforting atmosphere – soft, inset lighting creates a relaxing mood.
And here’s a look at the practical entryway, outfitted with hooks to hold coats and accessories and a simple ottoman for removing shoes. The full length mirror to the right makes it easy to give an outfit a final once-over before heading out for the day.
Visualizer: Form 8 studio
This apartment concept was designed with a young couple in mind. This one is actually a little smaller than the previous apartment at 65.5 square meters, but the linear open layout makes it feel even more spacious. The layout features the living room on one side, separated from the kitchen by a small counter that conceals a dining table on its other side.
That handsome low counter plays an important role by hiding the table and chairs. The pendant, on the other hand, enhances the entire open living space – dining pendants are always a useful focal point.
Visualizer: Anna Fedyukina
Last up is a handsome apartment concept for a young couple in Moscow. It offers a floral take on nature-inspired decor, with rich lilac accents bringing warmth to the neutral wood and sand tones throughout the interior. It’s not minimalist by any means – texture, color, decoration, and furnishings all showcase a strong personality without straying too far from simplicity.
Continuing through the living room, a spacious kitchen occupies a sunny corner of the home. It includes an eat-in dining table that can be transformed into extra usable workspace simply by removing the chairs.
Of course, there’s plenty of storage to go around. The upper cabinets demonstrate a mix of both traditional and open shelving. Drawers, shelves, and cabinets hide behind the rustic wood cabinetry below.
Just beyond the modern dining room, a bright little veranda gives residents and guests a place to enjoy coffee or tea in the sunlight.
And check out these adorable pillows! A mixture of patterns, playful prints, and solid colors keeps things interesting. The bench itself contains four drawers to contain extra pillows, throws, and anything else the hosts might need for entertaining.
The bedroom goes for a softer and more subtle natural motif. The same lilac hues draw the eye, surrounded by warm honey-toned woodwork for a welcoming effect. Branchlike patterns stand out from the frosted glass closet.
Creative bedroom pendant lighting provides focused task illumination for the side tables on either side of the bed.
Soft fabrics also play an important role in this beautiful bedroom. An upholstered section of wall reaches to the ceiling behind the bed, a textural rug below ready to warm feet on chilly mornings.

No one wants to take out the trash. No one wants to replace the liner. Yet there’s no reason why your trash should have to look shabby.

Industrial designs that make use of concrete may be all the rage in some circles, but the fact is that you will have difficulty finding any beautiful home that does not use wood elements. A popular building material that is just as effective in decorative use, wood brings an automatic warmth and coziness to even a modern space. The four homes featured in this post take a love of wood to another level. Not only are beautiful hardwood floors found throughout, but the natural grain carries up across the walls, into shelving units, cabinetry, and even across ceilings. The resulting style is lovely, bright, and welcoming in each case.

An open concept home works well with materials that come from the same family but do not match exactly.
The unique wood ceiling, which you will see closer up, has a music themed home decor vibe to it, calling to mind the gentle curves of a guitar, while the drum set in the corner pays homage to the homeowner’s love of music as well.
As we move into the dining area, elements like a dark wood table and dining pendants shift the tone of the design.

The second home is also very open and once again makes use of plenty of beautiful bare wood elements.

In the third home, we see the featured wood elements moving from the ceiling to the wall.
Oversized flower vases like this one can help to bring a splash of color and life into a wood on wood design.
In the final home, we have a darker wood home with a living room that features unique floor lamps stretching to the ceiling.

Sometimes a beautiful interior starts with just a single idea. Such was the case with this 72 square meter townhouse in Minsk, Belarus from Visualizer Form’8 Studio. The home, designed for a successful photographer, started with only the elements of wood and concrete. The concrete walls and ceilings are original to the building, while wood flooring, shelving, and cabinetry have been added to create a much warmer feel. A mix of higher-end items, like luxury dining chairs and more DIY elements like pallet furniture ultimately make for a creative, beautiful space that feels welcoming to its owner as well as to guests that may stop by.
In the dining room, Hans Wegner modern dining chairs are an exceptionally stylish choice.
And out in the main living area, a Fiddle Leaf Fig plant adds to a charming collection of indoor house plants.
Planters also dot the bedroom shelving and windowsills.

Industrial interiors are known for concrete floors and wooden walls. What happens if you invert the structure, and throw a few specific Pantones in? This Penza, Russia interior, designed and visualised by Andrey Barinov, throws all your design preconceptions on their head. Using concrete ceilings and wooden floors, this almost 52sqm apartment makes a feature of external wiring and colourful borders. As pendant lighting dangles messily from its factory ceilings, large slabs of roughshod wood form tables met by white wire chairs. Open its closets with red dot handles; see rooms clad in fire truck red and teal green; bathe amidst baby blue and electric yellow bathroom tiles. See its surprising features and colours for yourself.
Opening onto an open, muted-colour space, the view from the lounge is broken by two colour ways: a striking teal wall complemented by red and black coloured wiring. An unusual feature guiding visitors, coloured wire forms snake through rooms and across ceilings, creating an easy-to-follow sequence of space. As light wooden walls match a simple TV cabinet, creativity shows itself in the little details – a diamond-legged plant stand, ceramic coral flower beside the TV, white dining pendant lights and a soft pair of abstract paintings. As cupboards and water heaters pale into the walls, red and black wire lines keep us moving – and guessing – into adjacent rooms.
Looking down from the ceiling, an array of messy pendants hang loose, creating a relaxed and casual vibe throughout the home. Against the backdrop of pale wooden flooring and white brick kitchen walls, the pendants provide a simple backdrop for a rough-shod wooden table and modern dining chairs in stencilled, white metal frames.
Complemented by a trio of oddly-sized marble planters, the dining room’s pendant cords thread into black and red wires, creating a web. Reflected in stencil-like dining chairs, a teal green door frame and fire engine outlines of cubby holes, the wiring provides design cues throughout the home. The wires work their way down the corridor, into the kitchen and through the wooden grooves of the floor, allowing a feeling of calm by lying flat on the ceiling.
As red and black wires thread through the interior, we meet a minimalist example for modern white kitchens. Headlined by a chrome extractor fan leading to an oven, stove and sink, the relatively-tight space creates room for thought in white. A row of tiled inlets mirrors the wall opposite, an industrial choice in white-painted exposed brick. Topped by six Japanese windows, the adjoining wall integrates the wires above and the grey-and-white patterned lino.
A peek through the kitchen’s Japanese windows offers a haven drenched in green. Using its space wisely, the bed expands over the floor with a grey woollen rug and matching cotton headboard. A row of camera lights make the space glow by night; two open balcony windows sunlit by day. Not to be lost from the grid of red and black, white pendants hang from red wiring to a table of similarly-coloured legs. A power socket pokes out in white, adding the final touch to a room decidedly tuned to an industrial style.
A tribute to the bedroom’s feature wall, the entrance corridor makes a statement of its own with a wall of green. Using the bedroom’s sliding doors with red dot handles, the space connects the linoleum of the kitchen with the grey of the lounge in a quilted seat. Two ceramic jars in the interior’s red have the final say in this storage-friendly corridor.
Unexpected bursts of colour announce themselves in the apartment’s two bathrooms. The smaller bathroom of the two stripes four tiles in sunshine yellow, marking the path to the main amenity. White tiles from the kitchen provide contrast with black tiles on the floor, an eye-catching detail in a mostly-white room. Laden with coral sculptures from the lounge, light wood forms a bench holding a sink and shelving. A space-saving cabinet in the same hue provides room above the porcelain.
Looking down into the master bathroom, its smaller cousin’s black and white tiles and light wood survive. Striking notes with baby blue and a burst of sunshine yellow, a sink space for two is divided by way of colour. Illuminating the space, LED mirror lights provide an unobtrusive design feature, while coral ornaments from the lounge offer another segue. Fitted with a stunning granite benchtop, marble soap dispenser, slatted shower mat and mint-painted towel rail, the space surprises again with a baby blue tiled wall housing an inbuilt bathtub.
Back in the corridor, the palette turns light again. Hiding the washing machine, iron and a plethora of towels, the cabinet’s light-wooden panels hide away the everyday. As grey and white tiles greet the kitchen, a row of simple ceiling lights illuminate their patterns and red dot handles on the doors. A white door and walls to the left provide room for contemplation.

Pastel palettes are a great way to maintain the clarity of a minimalist interior without sacrificing the energy and expressiveness that color can provide. These two apartments both explore pastel color schemes in very different ways. The first home limits pastels to the living room and uses soft neutrals elsewhere, but the initial impression is huge. The second home uses pastels throughout, but in subtle ways that might be easy to overlook in the occasional presence of brighter tones. If you’re looking for interior color inspiration with a lighter touch, these two apartments just might offer up some ideas you can use for your next redesign.

Let’s start with an adorable 68 square meter apartment that creates a cool nautical feeling with ocean inspired pastel tones and cloud-gray neutrals, surfaces dotted with minimalist ceramic sculptures of sea life. Other decorative motifs include typography and travel-related prints – a style that expresses a snapshot of the resident’s varied interests.
Without much room for extra furniture, the designer chose to make every piece count. This creative dining arrangement includes an iconic Hans Wegner Wishbone surrounded by Tom Kelley’s Salt Chair in white.
Now let’s check out one of the bedrooms, small but packed with functionality – complete with ample built-in cabinets and a cool little writing desk! Even the bed platform hides its own set of drawers.
Small spaces like these can’t always accommodate bold decor without beginning to look a little cluttered. Thankfully, typography often serves as a reliable option. Inspirational messages are a great way to start the day.
Visualizer: Thao Uyen
The second apartment in our tour takes a more subtle approach to the pastel theme, with touches of color hiding in the most unexpected places (like the interior of the sideboard cabinet shelves). Bold patterns and creative materials grab up more of the spotlight but the effect of the pastels shouldn’t be overlooked, especially as they relate to the important role of the houseplants.
Other sources of color come from the abundant plants and adorable planters that take full advantage of the sunlight that pours through the generous wall of windows at the end of the room.
Mixing and matching dining chairs is always a great way to transform ordinary furniture into a cool talking point. A unique dining pendant centers the arrangement.
A pair of geometric kitchen pendant lights adds a little extra illumination over the marble dining bar.
Before moving on to the private areas of the home, here’s another look at some of the indoor house plants that breathe life into the interior.
And now for a look at the master bedroom. Convenient shelves stand near the doorway, separated from the rest of the space by a partial wall. Here, the decor is more eclectic to reflect the personal side of the resident.

Vine Shaped Floor Lamp: This flexible willow vine sparkles with 144 individual lights that cast a soft glow appropriate for use in the bedroom or as subtle mood lighting around the home.
