Living Edge Tables Welcoming Natural Imperfections

Mon, Jul 7, 2014 | Tables

Designer Greg Klassen thinks that the imperfections can really inspire and includes them into his tables making them almost art. Greg takes two living edge slabs with the meandering natural curvatures facing each other towards what will be the center of the finished piece. The living edges create a support for a hand cut tinted blue glass sheet that will span the two slabs, creating one continuous surface. Voids are also treated the same way and have the appearance of small ponds or lakes within the wood top. Small checks and splits are left au naturale, adding to the natural patina of the surface. Sometimes the glass is fitted into a rebate to create a lowered crevice rather than one continuous flat surface.

26 Dreamy Outdoor Bedroom Oasis Designs

Sat, Jul 5, 2014 | Bedroom designs

Summer is the best time for sleeping outdoors, and if the weather allows, organize an adorable outdoor bedroom. There are different ways to do that: use your big front porch covering it with curtains for privacy; put a tent in your garden; use your garden house or just put a bed (maybe a hanging one) in the garden. Don’t forget about a nightstand to put your book, a cup of tea and some lamp or lantern. There are lots of styles you can use for such a bedroom but I advise boho chic because it looks so bold, inviting and refreshing and very easy to make, and colorful textiles look amazing in the lush greenery. If you have a water body around, make a drifting platform with a bed – there’s nothing more awesome than that! Get more inspiring ideas below!
