Durandana Patenaude Outdoor, December 11th , 2017. Maybe it’s the traditional design or the bright white color, but these fences are definitely held in high regards by many people! Their simplicity is captivating and it’s no wonder many homeowners see them as the ultimate dream. A home with a dark exterior will wonderfully contrast the white fence, contributing to a balanced setting that is but a monochrome backdrop for the greens growing in the yard. The color white’s biggest blessing is the fact that it makes all the other colors stand out. If you really want the colorfulness of your house to be seen from miles away, a white picket fence is a sure-fire way to do so.
Annette Clavette Interior, December 11th , 2017. The space afforded by the 11-foot ceilings is put to good use, with a loft converted into an entertainment area. Museum-style track lighting increases the perception that one is in an art gallery. Certain soothing details such as soft features and warm neutral colors create a grounding, casual atmosphere. There‘s also a fun dose of pop art: A handmade “Open“ sign, built from a wine crate and neon wording, hangs from the loft and illuminatesdepictions of both Queen Elizabeth of England and Chairman Mao.
Amorette Rancourt Furniture, December 11th , 2017. We‘re all familiar with rattan, although sometimes we think it‘s one and the same as wicker. But the material we now associate with cozy furniture is actually full of surprises. The term rattan, for instance, defines more than 600 species of climbing palms and a lot of them are in fact more similar to lianas than to actual wood. Rattan has slender stems and doesn‘t grow like a tree but more like a vine, also being a bit similar to bamboo from certain points of view.
Byron Guibord Furniture, December 11th , 2017. Modern wicker was initially developed as a basket weaving technique. In time, it evolved into furniture. By the 17th century, in Northern Europe, wicker looked a lot like it does today. The trend soon spread all over the world and became as popular and as common as it is today. Then, in the mid 19th century it reached the United States where it was quickly industrialized and mass-produced.
Lorraine Duplanty Furniture, December 11th , 2017. Of course, there‘s also the most obvious option: a small dining table. There’s no match for that. Small dining tables come in a lot of different shapes and sizes and, compared to some of the other ideas mentioned so far, they’re more accessible from a financial point of view and easier to find in furniture shops. Consider a round table instead of a rectangular one if your desire is to save some space and to make the room appear larger visually. Round dining tables allow you to sit more people, offering more flexibility in this sense and they can also fit in right corners.
Brigitte Dupuis Kitchen, December 11th , 2017. In some cases, a window backsplash is preferred because of a lack of natural light. An interesting example is the summer house designed by BAK Arquitectos, where concrete was used for countertop. Even though it has a very open layout, there’s not really an abundance of natural light inside the house. In order to have a kitchen that’s both bright and functional in terms of storage space, they chose the window backsplash strategy.
Pinabel Rouze Bedroom, December 11th , 2017. Dashes of colour frame this array of wooden panels. Acting as a partition with a bed cosied in, it signposts a spot for a sleepy night in. Have a one-room space you‘d like to separate? This framed wooden headboard uses black to mark a stylish space for sleeping.
Roger Barjavel Furniture, December 11th , 2017. The Atocha magazine rack is casual enough to integrate well in modern and contemporary lounge areas but also elegant enough to look good in formal environments. It has an X-shaped wooden frame that holds a leather sling. The size makes it suitable for the storage of magazines although you could also use it t hold books if you want.
Guillaume Goguen Outdoor, December 11th , 2017. This observation tower rises above the river Mur at the Austrian border with Slovenia. Completed in 2009, it was designed by Munich-based architectural practice terrain for the city of Gosdorf in Austria. Made of steel and aluminium, the tower is intentionally incongruous in its Styria forest setting. Visitors to the tower enjoy revolving views of nature, as they ascend and descend its double spiral stairs. At its peak, a platform rests twenty-seven metres above the ground, offering views across the treetops of the wonderful riparian forest. It would appear that Norway is a country with many vantage points. Utsikten—or ‘the view’—was designed by Oslo-based Code Arkitektur. The rather quirky triangular viewing platform perches at the top of Gaular mountain on Norway’s western coast. With its raised corners, Utsikten affords three different viewpoints.
Delit Desaulniers Bathroom, December 11th , 2017. Amidst a colorful wall, a black accent space is painted onto the sink and mirror wall in the bathroom to create a cohesive, singular feature. Three separate mirrors, instead of one large single mirror, allow more black to be visible, increasing the sophistication of this simple bathroom space. Floor-to-ceiling black walls aren‘t something that you see in a typical bathroom, but the contemporary vibe is tangible. Rich yellow silhouettes pop against the black wall and dark fixtures, breaking up the large visual chunk of black and bringing in some nice color to the cozy bathroom setting. Plus, few things are better than exposed light bulbs against a black wall.
