White Scandinavian flat with a Santorini bedroom

When you look at this apartment, it is the ordinary, beautifully arranged white Scandinavian apartment – with white walls, Scandy carpetstry (I invented this word), furnace in the corner of the living room… And then, when you go upstairs, you realize that this Scandy owner is a Greek guy that really misses Santorini and asked…

Children’s rooms for teens

Shining sink from Rapsel

This sink with a code name “Vision” by company Rapsel is so good and will make people from its surrounding to wash their hands more often. “Vision” shines in the dark, and also during the daylight, because it was made from alicrite (translucent material), and has the light bulb hidden inside it. Dimension of this…

10 black and white hallways

They say the hallway of a house or apartment is the mirror of the tenant’s/host’s soul.  I wonder what the soul of a person who paints the hallway black and white looks like? Tak a look at other black and white combos for apartment decoration. I liked them.. Via my friends DigsDigs

San Lorenzo mountain house

The only thing I dislike about this beautiful mountain cabin is the herd of gutted animals spread out all over the place, but such is the mountain, wild, the people have to defend themselves somehow. It’s irrelevant to mention that they don’t really have to decorate their walls with heads of dead animals, but I…

This spectacular apartment with a gigantic living room and surreal view of the river costs only 14 000 Pounds a week to rent, so why wouldn’t I book a cheap flight to London to rest for a few days. Via Home-designing.

Wooden bathroom

Wood is rarely in the bathroom. Usually we use metal, plastic and of course ceramics. And more ceramics. And tiles. Made of ceramics. What is great about  Francoceccoti bathrooms is the fact that the parts are made of wood. And this natural range for bathtubs, lavatories and accessories are pointless to explain. Just use your…

Old but good – A rest in the Nestrest

I’m getting ready to decorate my garden and I don’t know what furniture to put in it. I’ve got many wooden beams scattered around my weekend-house’s courtyard, which I don’t  know exactly how to use but I could build all kinds of constructions with them. I’ve looked long and hard for something to use in…

Cabin with movable walls

Olson Kundig Architects.. This intriguing square-shaped cabin was designed by the Olson Kundig Architects, an architectural bureau with such a rich portfolio that it gave me a headache. They also sport one of the coolest websites, and it wasn’t built in Flash – it appears as if it was but it’s not, it’s all in…

Overhauling an old house

Alessandro Armando and Manfredo di Robilant overhauled this 19th-century house. Actually it looked like a 20th century rural garage or something. This house is in Boston, just besides MIT campus. I don’t know what to say because I didn’t see the house before redecoration, but it looks more than perfect for me now. And then-some.…

The Weird or What Houses

Would you live in one of these? Chances are many of us urban dwellers live in dull, standardized buildings – boxes, which were probably designed in under 15 minutes with nothing but a ruler. Even if that’s not the case, anyone would certainly use a change of scenery and surroundings, at least for a short…

Less Is More In A Modern Home

Apartments are usually overstuffed with furniture like massive tables, rugs, huge dressers and commodes – all leading to a feeling of reduced comfort and lack of space in a place where we should feel most comfortable. Minimalist home on the other hand, has its advantages – less stress from clutter, more appealing to eye, easier…

Let there be light!

When you’re buying the lighting for the living room or the kitchen, it matters most how you strike that balance of the right amount of light for the room in question. Many are fooled by the size of the showroom where the chandeliers are exhibited and where the light feels differently and might eventually turn…

Modular wall lighting

Francesca Rogers and Daniele Gualeni have designed this interesting lighting system. It’s a modular lighting system composed out of variable number of identical but interdependent parts. In a form play with light, shapes and contrasts, all these separate parts complete a dynamic light mosaic. What these two Italian designers have created has a pretty simple…

A room in a box – We were amazed when we saw this

Boxetti had created a product fitting to their name. There’s no such thing as furniture in this minimalistically envisioned room – more precisely, it’s not immediately apparent because it’s entirely packed up, just like you may pack up all your stuff when you move. In their words, every piece of this furniture is characterised by…
