Blue Surrealistic Home Inspired By The Mediterranean

Thu, Mar 26, 2015 | Unusual house designs

There’s always a certain pleasure that can be derived from looking into the private homes of artists and designers, as we actually get to see how they choose to live and how their creativity unfolds. Not surprisingly, the private residence of eclectic and multitalented London-based interior designer Danielle Moudaber is a riot of unusual shapes and objects, all set against a dramatic backdrop of soothing blue walls and swirling white decorations. Reminiscent perhaps of the palace of some fantastical King of the sea, Danielle Moudaber ’s apartment was designed, as she says, to ‘sooth her soul’ and remind her of the endless blue of the Mediterranean as seen from a seaside terrace. Get inspired by the design masterpiece below!

Mosaic Sea Glass Collection Inspired By Shore Walks

Thu, Mar 26, 2015 | Ceramic tiles

Sea Glass is a new collection of handcrafted mosaic. Created by Sara Baldwin for New Ravenna, Sea Glass is inspired by walks along the Eastern Shore of Virginia, where Baldwin would find pieces of glass “smoothed by years of waves and sand.” The eight patterns depict natural elements, as well as ornamental motifs. Aurelia, Chinoiserie, Folia, and Plum Blossom are florals, each with its own style and scale. Chinoiserie of course has an oriental flavor, with intricate trees, flowers, and birds. Folia is simpler, a decidedly delicate pattern with sinuous lines. Dune, Clouds, and Tempest use small rectangular pieces to simulate their namesakes. All Sea Glass mosaic is custom created to size each installation; the designs come in over 70 glass colors.

Soft Industrial Loft Decorated With An Exquisite Taste

Wed, Mar 25, 2015 | Modern home designs

An old factory on the Copenhagen docks was converted into a stunning four hundred square meters loft, where the natural light is the heart of the interior design. The space layout was arranged following the progression of the sunlight that comes in through its thirty-four windows. The color scheme was also chosen to match the mood of the natural light at certain times of the day in the different areas of the loft. There are no partitions either to obstacle the flow of natural light, only a wall that separates bedroom and bathroom. The owners have carefully selected iconic pieces of twentieth-century design and works of contemporary art to decorate the loft with an exquisite taste.
