Tue, Aug 26, 2014 | Modern home designs

Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects have teamed up with interior design firm Antoni Associates on the Sprecher House in Hangklip, South Africa. The home is located in the Sea Farm Private Nature Reserve, so the owners wanted a contemporary low maintenance weekend retreat away from their busy lives in Cape Town. Natural colors and materials were used in the design, which makes use of large verandas and big glass windows that allow natural light in. The interiors are very stylish, modern, relaxing and with beautiful rustic touches. Living areas lie north-south to make the most of views of Hangklip Mountain, whilst protecting from the extreme Cape Coastal climate.


29 Traditional Tile Stoves In Home Décor

Tue, Aug 26, 2014 | Fireplaces

Tile stoves were first designed in Sweden in the 18th century in response to a shortage of wood suitable for burning. With a heat-retaining cast iron core and long multi-channel flues, the kakelugns retain heat, keeping rooms warm up to a whole day after the fire is out. Add a cozy touch to your interior with such a stove – it will not only give a comfy touch but also warm you up if you like. Such a stove can fit almost any interior, from a traditional one to ultra-minimalist. Most of tile stoves are white, some of them have patterns but don’t hesitate to make a statement with a colorful modern one. If you don’t want to use it as a stove, you can always put candles inside for a cozy atmosphere. Get inspiration below!


Multifunctional Dice Furniture For Children And Adults

Mon, Aug 25, 2014 | Furniture

This six-sided piece of furniture by Japanese studio Torafu Architects can be flipped over to reveal different functions. Dice is a multi-purpose piece of furniture that can be used in three different ways depending on which way up it’s facing. Rolled over, a flat surface that covers all of one side creates a stool for adults. The surfaces that form supports for the desk can be used as shelves when the product is flipped again. All edges are covered in colored rubber strips so they don’t scratch floors and to protect the wood when rolled over. Panels intended for contact with the body are stained in pastel tones. The lighter version features blue rubber edging, while the darker version uses yellow. So cool!

As the house is very close to the sea, there are some beach-inspired elements in décor, rattan furniture and wicker accessories, which also remind of a seaside reatreat.

26 Industrial Home Offices That Blow Your Mind

Sat, Aug 23, 2014 | Study room designs |

Industrial style for home offices is a great idea as I think this style makes you think of work. Rough wood and metal pipes are the most popular materials for organizing such a space. For walls and floors concrete (for a minimalist look) or rough wood (for a rustic touch) go very well, it’s rather affordable, durable and looks stylish. Rough brick walls also look amazing and give your home office a shabby chic look. Furniture of metal pipes and wood is easy to make yourself, you’ll get a personalized piece and won’t pay much. If you are planning a feminine industrial home office, try Scandinavian black and white palette for the office or just add some bold touches. Get inspired!

If you’ve been following us lately, then you have seen Monti Silvestri Clock by Formafantasma made of materials derived from the lava from the 2013 eruption of Mount Etna in Sicily.
