Many apartment dwellers and homeowners need to cope with small kitchens, or at least kitchens with limited counter space. A big countertop dish drainer isn’t going to work, but they need something for those dishes, glasses, pans and cutlery that don’t go into the dishwasher. Here’s a selection of small dish racks that will easily solve the lack space problem. Hang your rack to the wall or put it right onto the sink, so it won’t take much space; it’s great if the rack is foldable, so you could vary the size and fold it and hide after using.

Halbhaus is a 17th-century timber-frame Swiss chalet located in the historic Swiss mountain village of Andermatt. Halbhaus (‘half house’ in German) originally stood next to a house that was its mirror image, but was lost to a fire several decades ago. The heart of the house is a double-height kitchen and living area. Whitened wood paneling and flooring contrasts with the dark, custom-built kitchen and gray plastered walls. The chalet’s furnishings are a mix of new and old, and include several pieces, such as the dining table and chairs, passed down from the previous owner; the flooring is original throughout. Though a bit Spartan inside, the chalet is a great space for relaxation.
The new school year has begun. Have you found out that your kid needs a new desk? Don’t hurry up to the store – you can customize the desk applying some original ideas. A desk on usual legs isn’t always comfy, so substitute the legs with props. First, they can be adjusted, second, they can contain storage spaces. If there’s really not enough space, go for a hanging top with or without drawers – it can be hidden on the wall after using. A windowsill can be turned into a working and studying surface, and again it’s a very space-savvy solution. Sliding desks can be hidden in beds, bookcases or anywhere else where you have space.

Architect Johanna Molineus designed an apartment in London for herself, and I’m sure that you will find inspiration here. The space is painted a uniform shade of pure white, which gives a Scandinavian feel, and outfitted with classic furniture and lighting from mid-century greats such as Marcel Breuer and Arne Jacobsen. Located on the top floor of a Georgian house in Notting Hill, the apartment is animated by her ever-evolving collection of Chinese and Central Asian textiles, which she switches out twice a year for variety, and masses of silver goblets, cups, candlesticks, which she collects during her travels. The apartment is full of character and personality, and we can see that it belongs to an artistic person at once.
The placement of a sofa or couch in a living room is an important factor in determining how the décor would look like and how everyone would interact. The first idea is to the sofa against a wall or, if it’s a sectional, to put it in a corner. Another idea is to have the sofa or couch placed at some distance from the wall or to place it toward the center of the room, facing a wall, but here the back of the sofa can become a detail that influences the rest of the décor in a negative way, and its solution is a table. This table will not only accentuate the décor but also can function as a desk, dining table or a bar. Look at the ideas below to get how to place tables and sofas right.
