Hi, here I am.. over the past weeks I was thinking on how to renovate or change the “skin” of my apartment.. a real practical “dilemma” to deal with..
My mind has started to struggle with so many ideas.. and then, suddenly, I realized that my urgency was to go for something of warm, basic, maybe a little raw but absolutely natural.. wood!!
Here some ideas..
A cool apartment where blending wood melts into black and white interior design… by ADD Design..
Small spaces don’t always feel so large inside, but this Swedish home found the perfect combination of wood decor and minimalism to make it feel like a real “home”… . The layout is straightforward and simple. The decor is modern and elegant with a cool color scheme that enlarges the small space..
And here below the solution of the “riddle” by Adam Nathaniel Furman. The work be about the renovation of an unusual 162 sq. meter Georgian Terrace in Bristol, the designer employs colour to highlight architectural details and brighten the space…
If you know the name Abigail Ahern, then you are familiar with her quirky and whimsical style that is equal parts eclectic and chic. Here below the Intricately bold Interior of the designer’s apartment..
And now two interiors coming from German studio Karhard Architectur+Design, both really refined and with a peculiar stylish minimalism..
B05 apartment, Berlin..
“K41 Teil 2 apartment”, Berlin…
And now we leave the old Europe to take an interesting journey to Australia.. to be more precise in a sweet workers cottage in Nundah in Brisbane’s inner Northern suburbs. This outstandingly cute shelter belong to Kara Rosenlund, a multitalented Australian creative, with a background in photography, who moved from Sydney to London in 2007, to found work as a props buyer and stylist. When she returned home, she has been since juggling styling contracts for cookbooks, magazines and events with her project “Travelling Wares” a cute caravan which Mrs. Rosenlund fills with beautiful antiques and vintage “nik naks” sourced from far and wide, setting up shop at various markets and temporary locations up North.
Back in Europe here the Steven Volpe’s Paris “pied-à-terre”.. pretty much a gallery of notable furniture…
Paola Navone ideas are always interesting and fun.. here is one of her works for “Casamilano” the 2010 “Sommier”. These panels prove once again that capitone decor isn’t dead. The panels are made in wood upholstered with fixed cover in cotton fabric with capitone print. They are ideal solution to make modern minimalist interiors a bit warmer and much more fun!
And now the latest suggestions..the first from the “Old World” and the other from the “New World”..
We begin with a peacefull and intimate white Swedish apartment..
From the “New World” a modern raw accent interior, who made tall interior spaces useful as aesthetic… the idea was to emphasize the intense dramatic view created whit the skilful play between the existing concrete bell-cap columns and those parts of columns and walls covered by symmetric wooden boards.. a awesome interior design by VJAA Architecht Studio.
