This small apartment is located in Östermalm, a large district in central Stockholm, Sweden, and it measures 366 square feet.

Wed, Dec 3, 2014 | Kitchen designs

White is popular for kitchen décor today because it’s laconic, light, widens the space and blends well with any other colors. This white kitchen is that of interior decorator Holly Mathis. It is stunning, and has a casual elegance about it that makes you want to pull up a stool with a cup of tea and breathe in the apple pie smell coming from the oven.

Tue, Dec 2, 2014 | Wood house designs

Chalet houses are absolute love and joy, especially in winter, due to the fantastic coziness inside. This one is located in Italy, not far from the border with France, and was designed by architect Tanya Haug. Not only the house itself but also most of the furniture are made from natural materials like wood or stone. The stone clad around the fireplace gives the living room a special vintage touch, and reindeer statuettes and fir tree candleholders remind of Christmas. In the dining room everything is made from wood, and this makes it cozy, and thanks to the big windows it doesn’t look too heavy. The spaces look very inviting and cozy, this house offers you to relax after skiing and have a good meal and hot bath.
