If you have a beach cottage or just decided to bring some sea breeze inside, choose some cool beach-inspired pieces! Designers create so many beautiful furniture pieces decorated with starfish, shells and oyster shells, and you can even make some yourself! Look at these cool lamps and mirrors decorated with sea life creatures! You can also find chairs, sideboards and cabinets incrusted with shells and mother-of-pearl – they look like exquisite jewelry! But don’t use excessive sea-inspired furniture because it’ll spoil the look, just add a stylish lamp with a coral base or a dresser covered with oyster shells, some shabby chic pieces and you’ll get a dreamy beach interior!
Style at Home editor-in-chief Erin McLaughlin helped to renovate a kitchen into an ultra-stylish space. The design came to modern elegance – a steamlined, contemporary design combined with beautiful, timeless accents. White marble contrasts with dark wooden floors; the kitchen is full of light thanks to the French doors which visually expand the space. Glass cabinets combine with a small section of cantilevered shelves very well, they look light while perform a storage function very well. A large kitchen island accommodates the storage and acts as a dining table. There’s a fantastically cozy sitting nook with white furniture and two bamboo chairs – so inviting!
Studio Klass has already excited us with Odeon lamp, and now it’s time for storage. Foulard is a curved glass wall shelves collection, designed as a modular system to allow several layouts on the wall. There’s no more space for usual shelves of traditional archetype. We want three-dimensional storage that is suitable for the 21st century and high technologies! Foulard is a sequence of curves and deformations of the material that creates a series of shelves and transparency plays, creating the illusion to wrap itself around the objects inside. The shelves are ideal almost for any minimalist space from a living room to a bathroom due to their look and material.
If you want to feel summer and heat all the time and not only during warm seasons, there’s a great idea – make a tropical bedroom! Bright colors raise your spirits, help to wake up and energize you from the beginning of the day. The simplest way to create a jungle atmosphere is wallpaper with tropical leaves print or birds, and they shouldn’t be only green. The best furniture for such a room is modern of light colors or colonial of dark shades or even of bamboo. Green accessories like cushions, bedding and bedspreads will help you to finish the look. Bamboo walls, tropical-themed wall art, suitcase-shaped dressers are up to you, depending on your likes and impression you want to make.
Rustic style is pretty and sweet especially in combination with some hunter’s touches. So, if you are planning to decorate your porch in this style, look at this brilliant example. The owner of a small forest house decided to decorate her porch so that a person could feel like in a hunter’s retreat. The centerpiece is a unique console table with legs made of antler which was turned into a cool bar outside. Garden armchair of wooden planks, a swing of an old bench, French-styled squared curtains didn’t cost a lot and look so harmonious together! A coat of arms and metal and stone figures of animals give a hunter’s touch. Get inspired!
Odeon by Studio Klass is a very original lamp that highlights the difference between the darkness of the space and the light that it projects on the wall. The lamp is made of polycarbonate and leather, it’s floor lamp and you can take where you want, even outside thanks to the leather handle that helps to move the piece. Put it wherever you want – in front of the wall, near the sofa and create a light projection. The design is sleek, modern and minimalist though with a slight hint of mid-century style. There are several color options that make the lamp suitable for almost any interior.
Garden paths are important for garden décor, they help to create a mood. Stone paths are a great variant for a garden design close to nature, and pebbles are a fantastic idea! First of all, pebbles are easy to find, to handle and remind of sea. Second, it’s very easy to make patterns of them, any that you like – from vignettes to snakes. The best idea is to put pebbles into concrete: the path would be stable and comfortable for walking. But if you like, you may just make some edges and just put pebbles on the earth, it would be unusual and great to walk along. Look for some ideas below and choose your pebble décor!
Scandinavian spaces are extremely cozy and charming in their simplicity, that’s why we’ve decided to show you this kitchen. Black and white, grey and natural wood in combination with a brick wall look very stylish. Scandi style is complemented with industrial touches like brick, hanging bulbs and a copper lamp on the wall. Though the space is small, everything is smart organized to accommodate the appliances. I like herbs in wooden planters, dark wood finishes and the floors – classical but original – they make the space softer. The kitchen turned out practical, modern, bright and with a hint of charm, do you agree?
Library is a very unusual room for modern world of iPads and tablet computers. But if you combine a library with a home office or even with a kids’ room in some touches, the result would be great! Have a look at this home library: it’s modern with mid-century touches and looks really cool! The center of the room is, of course, a giant bookcase and a comfortable armchair – when you look at them, you forget about everything and want only to read here. The big window gives much light and there are lots of stuffed kids’ toys that belong to the owner’s kids that make the room cozier. Stylish accessories and touches add to the atmosphere. The room is perfect both for adults and kids, and what could be better to teach kids to read than such a place?
