Ascetic craziness

Posted: 28. April 2011 in Design

It’s been a great Easter holiday; close to nature, nice people and good food…oh man, I haven’t really waken up from all the laziness…but am definitely glad to be back on my blog. Hope you’ve all had a memorable Easter too and are back now to see whom we’re visiting today…

It’s quite a sterile place with functional forms upgraded to pure craziness. The simplicity and the all-so-blinding white base are however cracked down with strong colourful accents of red and black.

I like the way this apartment varies in hight. It’s almost only the sky that is the limit in the living room, the dining area and the hall; while the bedroom has a much cosier shell.

Have you noticed all the animal print elements? On the picture below you’ll also find that the last step of the impressive staircase is covered with a zebra-like pattern. Cool! πŸ˜‰

Be inspired!

Β …by the asylum of a travelling bachelor from Warsaw.

The private section of his apartment is toned-down and comfortable, while the official one, where guests normally wander, is eccentric, provoking and much more colourful.

There are no coincidences here. Each and every decorating item is unique, found or bought in an uncommon place or location. The huge coffee table, for example, was a common idea of the owner and the interior decorator….during one of their project meetings that took place outside of the building complex that was still under construction at that time. So sitting on a park bench they suddenly spotted a huge tree trunk that was being made ready to be removed from the construction site. It was a quick decision. The trunk had to come and live with the owner πŸ˜‰

I’m all nuts about this crazy, psychedelic guest toilet!

I really like this Danish home that Susann Larsson from purple area has blogged about. Find out more from her own article that you’ll find here. The black elements are all a great manifestation of my own style. I dream of a natural floor like this. I’ve lived once in an appartment that featured such wooden floor and I admit it was demanding to keep it clean and maintain the bright colour at the same time…but I’d still love to have it anyway πŸ˜‰

Sofa made of jeans

Well… why not? πŸ˜‰

This one’s really stylish. Liam Mooney, the designer, has even given it a name – Low Back Settee. It features a very retro body and a pretty laid-back upholstery.

What do you think?

I don’t know where I found it…

The Wow effect in Stockholm

Posted: 15. April 2011 in Design

I must admit I’m not the biggest fan of huge open spaces, especially those that are spread over 2 or 3 regular floors. The reason for that is very simple – it requires a lot of aesthetic discipline not only to decorate the space in a meaningful and coherent manner, but also to maintain the abstract as well as the very tangible, every-day order in a place where walls are scarce.

The effect is certainly breath-taking. No doubt about it! πŸ˜‰

In such an open space you can actually feel how much air the room is filled with and how invigorating that must be…

Quite simple, yet stylish bedroom where the stairs-leading-to-nowhere are a great way of adding an extra dimension to an oversize room, a dimension that makes the whole space much more harmonious and easier to anticipate for the human eye.

Mood board and 3D wall panel

Posted: 11. April 2011 in Design

Well, here’s the last 3D panel that I promised to share with you. It actually has a name… it’s SQUARE, and as the other ones that I blogged about yesterday, also this one comes from WallArt.And tadaam…here’s the mood board that I’ve told you about. In direct translation from Danish, this type is actually called ‘pattern board’ and it’s supposed to feature the exact items that the interior will be furnished and decorated with. The Square is meant to cover a narrowΒ piece of wall (appr. 100cm wide), all the way from floor to ceiling. What do you think? πŸ™‚

Add texture to your walls

Posted: 10. April 2011 in Design

Guys! I’ve just been so busy working on my new interior project and desperately needed to find a way of decorating a single wall with other means than the standard ones, like large scale paintings, wall paper or just a significantly strong colour. That’s how I’ve spotted the 3D wall panels from WallArt – perfect to add some extra dimension to one of the walls in the living area of the house that I’m helping to decorate…For all of you out there who appreciate sustainable and eco-friendly design I rush to tell you that the 3D panels are made of fibrous residue of sugar cane. We like! πŸ˜‰As you’ve probably noticed, patterns are highly original and quite surprising actually.

Tomorrow, I’ll show you one more 3D panel and a mood board for this interior design project that I’m working on.

There’s a castle in Apuglia (Italy) that I’d really love to visit… Now, since it’s not yet possible to move in space and time with the power of a thought…I’ll have to live with a virtual visit.

During some weekends and holidays the Trullihusen castle is actually inhabited by a couple from Denmark – Morten Angelo and Tina Horstedt. Their 300m2, looking as if they were taken directly from the Middle Ages, are an oasis of modern and minimalistic decor. A perfect scenery for relaxation and an escape from everyday routines…
