New modern vintage ethnic patterns on walls

Sunday, January 28th, 2018


At the beginning of new year, after a few weeks of lazy January, it is time to do some changes, maybe starting with redesigning your apartment’ walls and creating retro, stylish welcoming vibe.
There is a new amazing trend coming this spring and summer, very ethnic, Africa inspired, but also modern vintage. Just take a look at new Zara campaign Spring-Summer 2018.
Vintage look was and continue to be popular, but takes a delicate turn with very detailed sophisticated patterns.
A few inspirational pics below, from tv shows like “Girlboss” (very funny tv series about the beginning of vintage shop Nasty Gal) or “Dear white people”. Both on Netflix.

Wintery but warm beautiful interiors

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018


“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.” – Edith Sitwell

The latest woodburning stoves, fireplaces and heaters are as stylish as they are efficcient. They use clean-burning smokeless fuel technology.

Using sheepskins and fairy lights will create a wintery atmosphere with a Scandinavian feel.

Summer and spring fresh colour palette

Monday, May 29th, 2017


The summer season is a great time for paint projects around the house, when you can work with all your windows open. So why not freshen up your home with a different colour palette than white or beige.
Here are the hot colours for summer:

1. Aqua and Blue
As interior designer Orlando Soria said:
“This is a warm minty aqua color that instantly makes you think of swimming pools”

2. Blush light pink

4. Fresh, never boring: lemon and green

Beautiful small spaces ideas

How to make them look more spaciousness

Here are simple advices from interior designers:
1. Whiten the ceilings and the walls to brighten the small space, use white marble in the bathroom.
White walls and stripped-back wooden floors gave the illusion of spaciousness. Adding textures velvet sofas, rugs will also add a character to the room.

 
2. Consider custom-made furniture to fit in the corners, building seating nooks in the corners or window bays.
Top off with the custom upholstery, linen, leather or velvet for glamour look, or Scandinavian simplicity.

3. Zone your space by transforming corner of the living room into the office.

4. Keep the furniture simple to not overwhelm the space. But also create a sense of luxury by combining old and new furniture.
5. When thinking about bookcases, purchase something that is high and will reach the ceilings.
White cabinetry, handleless and gloss in the kitchen reflects light and creates a feeling of spaciousness.
Floor to wall separate wardrobe will also help the space be more uncluttered and more restless.

6. If posiible, build loft extensions for living space or large bathroom.
7. Removing the doors can make the rooom instantly more open and capacious, but sometimes not very practical. Consider instead glass doors or door frames, which will give your space an open-plan feel without losing the ability to shut the areas off.
