If you like free-standing bathtubs and think that such design is better for your bathroom, you’ll love this idea! Called “DR Tub” by Studio MK27′s Marcio Kogan and Mariana Ruzante, the freeform shape takes into account the location of a floor mounted faucet so that it is enclosed within the footprint of the tub for a far more unified vignette and the vertical graining on the veneer brings a warm furniture vibe to the piece that increases the Zen and Spa factors by quite a bit. Two can soak side-by-side, across from each other or even kitty corner and the rounded form makes for a far more comfortable position for resting your arms, no matter which “zone” you decide to relax in.
This home, located near Moscow, Russia, was designed by the architect Olga Freiman. The steel and glass elements give the home a stylish elegance, and the wooden floors and walls grant it a component of warmth and familiarity that creates stunning spaces with a lot of character. The interior design is modern, with some futuristic and luxury touches like natural wood and marble, exclusive lights and a cool modern hearth. I like the rich color palette used in the design: chocolate brown, red, black, grey and light brown, and the accent stone wall in the bedroom – an amazing idea! On the whole, the house breathes with luxury and style, what a fantastic work!
Neutral living rooms always look elegant and so calm that I can’t help admiring them. If you are planning to decorate your living room in a neutral palette, then the most popular styles today are Scandinavian and minimalist: beige, grey and white, natural wood and stone, fireplaces and comfy furniture. But in case you want some luxury, take glam style – gilded neutral furniture, expensive calm fabrics and green plants. Coastal style is also a great idea if you design a beach house or a holiday one – add pale blue to the palette and some sea hints and voila! These colors are win-win, so don’t hesitate to use them!
The Bowl chair was originally designed by late Modernist architect Lina Bo Bardi in 1951, and Italian brand Arper launched a limited edition version of the Bowl chair. Bo Bardi envisioned the Bowl Chair as flexible in structure while universal and essential in form. But, as with all of Bo Bardi’s designs, the ultimate emphasis remains on the human interaction with the object. The challenge being to remain faithful to the original design while adapting to the contemporary conditions of industrial production, and Arper designers succeeded. For example, the frame of the upholstered seat has been produced in lightweight plastic as opposed to heavy hand-forged iron as specified in Bo Bardi’s original drawings.
Got tired of traditional interiors? Have a look at this futuristic apartment in Moscow! It was a project by Geometrix Design and the idea was to create a modern interior décor. The owner’s main request was to have bare walls and this was the starting point for the whole project. So, the designers used a combination of materials, colors and textures which results in a harmonious and balanced look. The futuristic approach meant that the interior design features minimalist, crisp lines and a diverse color palette. There are many elements that stand out but especially alcantra panels with a very sculptural look. The interior is rather minimalist though very eye-catching.
We continue telling you of neutral designs, and today it’s all about bathrooms. A bathroom is neutral colors is a real place for relaxation, and for me it’s, first of all, minimalist style. Minimalist neutral bathrooms are awesome! Simple design, minimalism in accessories and colors – isn’t that a paradise? A traditional bathroom in neutrals can also be a very cool space, and you can also decorate your bathroom in glam style using neutral shades of marble and gilded furniture. Scandinavian-inspired bathrooms are extremely cozy, here you can easily combine natural stone, wood and modern appliances, and it’ll look amazing! Look at the ideas below and find something for yourself!
This is perhaps one of the most original minimalist appliances that I’ve seen – it’s the sculptural Goccia bathtubs and basins. Meaning ‘drop’ in Italian, the Goccia bathtub is supported by a large folded rim that resembles a crisp white shirt collar and gives the design a sense of lightness. To create the collection’s smooth surfaces, Maromin has used its hygienic, shock- and stain-resistant gelcoat®, which is a composite material made of finely ground dolomite stone mixed with a synthetic resin. The bathtub and basin are available in black and white, so choose something for your minimalist bathroom!
Black and white is a classical combination with timeless beauty but it looks too minimalist and not every person wants to live in such a space. This space by Z-AXIS DESIGN is located in Taichung, Taiwan and it’s dubbed “The Little White Apartment” but the color here is not only white. The simplicity of the color palette and the minimalism of the whole décor make the apartment seem more spacious, given that it’s rather small. The interiors though being simple have their own personality due to the color touches used – orange, blue, brown and yellow. This minimalist space is very stylish and eye-catching and, to my mind, a cool bachelor’s apartment!
What are the main advantages of neutral colors? First of all, they are relaxing, they will help to enjoy your rest after a long day. The second reason is more practical, as calm shades make the space look bigger and more airy. That’s why I think that neutrals are the best palette for a bedroom, and no matter what shades you choose – grey, beige, white. Different styles are cool in these colors: traditional, minimalist, Scandinavian and even industrial. A hearth or a fireplace will make the space even more relaxing and kind of romantic. Look at the pics below and choose some ideas for your own bedroom!
These Babula lamps by Korol design team were inspired by the Russian Matryoshka. These are a a series of organically shaped lamps made of different materials. The feminine shape gives the pendant a harmonious and pleasantly soft look. The materials used are wood and porcelain, and this original combination results in a completely different impression than it was expected; the colors available are black and white – a truly minimalist approach. The lamp may be used separately but it’s better to buy a bunch of them and hang together to enjoy the look. I love the porcelain version – it looks so unique!
