Sweet Colorful Cottage With Shabby Chic Furniture

Tue, Oct 14, 2014 | Vintage home designs

This cheerful cottage by the beach belongs to designer Alison Kandler, and its décor shows how much the owner loves bright colors and pretty shabby chic pieces. Here every room is like a bright fairy-tale, with its patterns and colorful accents. How can a room not look happy with periwinkle and green diamonds painted on the floors? Have a look at the bedroom: reclaimed barn beams give this room instant patina, while whisper-pink floors add a feminine touch. I love the bathroom! Vintage, feminine and so warm with this pink bathtub it makes you think of having a cool bath feeling a vintage pin up diva. Every corner of this house is amazingly sweet!

How To Visually Expand The Space: 5 Tips And 20 Examples

Sat, Oct 11, 2014 | Decorating

Many of us face the problem of lack of space in our homes. But even if you have a small house or apartment, there are still some ways to make it look bigger, let’s have a look.

  1. Open-plan space. Eliminate all the walls and space dividers as an open space looks much bigger than it is.
  2. Use cold colors and white. These shades also make any home look more spacious and airy.
  3. No massive lights or furniture. If a room is small, try not to clutter it and the less furniture you use – the better.
  4. Mirrors. Mirror details are fantastic to make any space look much bigger, and a mirror ceiling can almost double the room.
  5. Contrasts. Add a couple of bright touches to the calm room décor to make the space wider. A colorful accent in the further corner of the room will attract attention and make everyone look across the room, so it will look bigger.

Find examples for every tip below and choose your own variant!


Eye-Catching Cuckoo X Clock With Two Birds

Sat, Oct 11, 2014 | Clocks

A clock can become a very eye-catching detail in any interior if it’s original enough. One of such things is Haoshi Design’s Cuckoo X clock that comes with two birds – it’s modern interpretation of a traditional cuckoo clock. It’s a battery-powered clock, made of resin, has two birds, one in the clock perched on the side and the other on the wall facing the clock. The birds meet each hour, on the hour, “so they can keep each other company”, says Haoshi Design. In traditional models, cuckoo clocks have only one diligent bird to tell time, which is a little lonely, but here we got two – and that’s fun!


Calm And Cozy Norwegian Family Loft With Retro Touches

Fri, Oct 10, 2014 | Scandinavian home designs

Scandinavian style is not just décor but a lifestyle, I think. This beautiful Norwegian family loft belongs to photographer Trine Thorsen and is done right in this style. The loft is attic and not very big but smartly designed: every inch of space is used and the basic color for every Nordic interior – white – makes the space visually bigger. I love the use of dark blue, black and dark brown accents that are original still don’t spoil the common harmonious color scheme. There are no patterns, just a couple of geometric art works, and big windows to bring some natural light in.

Sculptural Furniture Collection That Ties The Knot

Thu, Oct 9, 2014 | Furniture

Some artists can tame even the toughest materials and bend them at will, creating some of the most unique shapes and designs. We’ve already shared fantastic Why Knot table by artisan Kino Guerin, and today I’d like to continue this theme sharing the whole collection by this designer; there are benches, shelves and tables which feature smooth curves and look like they’ve been tied in a knot. The “Apple Table” is a piece with a versatile and multifunctional design, the “Simple Twist Shelf” seems to defy gravity with its artistic design, the “Nebula Table” sits perfectly level and stable and stands out with its knotted and twisted base and the “C Shelves” are the simplest of all the pieces but definitely not lacking style or functionality. Each of these sculptural pieces can make a statement in any room!
