New York Houseboat With A Simple Coastal Interior

Thu, Jul 10, 2014 | Beach house designs

If you can’t have a weekend out of the city, create a boat home and enjoy sea inside the city! Just like this boathouse in New York by Brooklyn design company Fredericks & Mae. A curtained sliding glass door leads to the entry hung with a fishing trap. The interior is coastal, of course, light, with natural wood; the room has a much-used hammock with a view, and the low chair is a canoe seat with new caning. The furniture in the bedrooms is distressed, the atmosphere is light and easy due to lots of white color. What a brilliant and simple idea for escaping for a weekend!

31 Clever Wardrobe Design Ideas

Thu, Jul 10, 2014 | Wardrobes

Arranging a wardrobe is a difficult task if you don’t have enough space, that’s why today we’ve gathered a bunch of ideas to save your space while having enough storage for your clothes. Build the wardrobe around the window, just include the window into your design and build around it. Use the wardrobe as a wall divider, in front of the bed or build it in with a TV. If you’ve decided to exclude the TV from your bedroom or to place it some other wall than the one in front of the bed, then you can use that area creatively and cover the entire wall with a huge storage unit. You can also organize vertical storage or hide lots of things inside the bed. Look for more smart storage ideas below and organize your space!

Modern Rural Family Home Made Of 100-Year-Old Beams

Wed, Jul 9, 2014 | Wood house designs

This striking modern Canadian home in sweeping hayfields is a wonderful example of a modern rural home open to nature. The house is constructed from 100-year-old beams salvaged from a series of warehouses collected by industrial designer Omer Arbel. Not a single reclaimed plank was cut or altered, giving the home its distinctive geometric look, described by Arbel as a piece of origami in the landscape. The interior is modern and covered with lots of different wood – the walls, the floors, the ceiling and furniture, and that makes the home cozier. I like lots of lights and the glass walls that allow nature going inside and merging with the interior becoming its part.

Bulbbox Lamp Made With A Box Of Bulbs

Wed, Jul 9, 2014 | Lamps

Modern trends inspire designers to look for beauty in ordinary and very simple things. No excessive décor is needed as you can see beauty in casual things that surround you. One of such things is the Bulbbox, by Ángel Tausía, it is pretty much just want it sounds like – a lamp made with a box of bulbs. A matte white aluminum box holds a series of burned out bulbs and bulb fragments along with one bulb and socket that actually works. The working socket is attached to a red textile covered cord that adds a pop of color to the piece. Great for modern and industrial spaces!

Contemporary Townhouse With Laconic And Clean-Lined Interior

Tue, Jul 8, 2014 | Modern home designs

This contemporary townhouse residence designed by Mim Design is located in Melbourne, Australia. Chambers Street townhouse residence encompass three levels of beautifully composed spaces focusing on superior finishes and detailing throughout to showcase a highly effective planning and design strategy. I like the interior style and the use of colors: modern, laconic, dramatic and with cool accents; black details make a frame. Locally sourced handmade brick tiles span the 3 levels adjacent to the staircase to provide a vertical integration feature. Stone throughout bathrooms and kitchen add a softness to the strong monochromatic palette. Efficient use of space throughout the living zone creates a well-proportioned, comfortable and clean lined interior.
