Plants at home

Saturday, March 19th, 2022


Tending houseplants and gardening is a form of self-care, a sort of the antidote to our fast and also that turbulent digital life. The greenery like the nature can bring calm, they literally produce oxygen and look beautiful. The use of houseplants within your working area also can help improve creativity and productivity.

How to decorate with plants and not make it look chaotic and messy. For example: allow your plants to take centre stage e.g fireplaces, welcome them to a work space in the corner of a desk. Use greenery in the bathroom, plants that love wet, hot and not too much sunt like Boston Ferns.

Buy a plant, stand or a vase.

According to research conducted by IKEA, by 2050, 70% of the world population will live in cities, making it obvious that we need to rethink the way we live. the IKEA home of tomorrow published in desigboom.com is the brand’s new urban concept where visitors can learn how to introduce environmentally friendly solutions into their homes. these solutions address future challenges such as excessive amount of waste, exhaustion of natural resources etc.

Wintery but warm beautiful interiors

Sunday, January 2nd, 2022


“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.

Industrial contemporary loft-style interiors

Sunday, December 12th, 2021


industrial modern kitchen

Beautiful modern contemporary style interiors. Newly built in a village in Camberwell London are inspired by the surroundings, specific vibe, culture of the local area. The industrial loft style, that I especially like, is beautifully created with details in every room, open plan kitchen, bedroom, and place to work with modern furniture and warm color accessories. That kind of modern artistic style, I would love to recreate or add some of it’s features to my new home.

Affordable A-frame houses and tiny houses ideas

Friday, May 28th, 2021


A triangle-design built, the A-frame was one of the most beloved vacation homes of the past, but thanks to the Instagram they’re experiencing a major come back.

There are already A-frames houses as vacation rentals, tiny A-frame cabins that cost ab £1000 to build. The latest I really like is the kit homes from Estonia-based Avrame.

Avrame offer all the comforts of traditional homes, but cost about half as much. They are currently offering 11 different models, from backyard sheds to family-sized houses, and everything in between.

The motto of the creator is “Your house shouldn’t be a burden on your time or finances. Avrames are for people who value their freedom but still want a place to call home.”

Indrek Kuldkepp, founder and owner of Avrame, first designed his own A-frame as a comfortable, efficient, and affordable home that could be built quickly and easily. After Kuldkepp realized that his A-frame cost about half as much as other homes to build, he decided to start a business selling self-build A-frame kits.

Prices range according to the size of the A-frame, with the largest model—the Trio 120—costing about $35,000.
