We continue our holiday marathon of reviewing Christmas catalogs by the world’s leading home brands. And today it’s time for wonderful American manufacturer Crate & Barrel, who is famous for stylish home accessories with moderate prices (at least in US standards). Anyway, their most recent Christmas collection is incredibly beautiful and inspiring. Enjoy watching!
A few years ago it was an old barn where the owners kept their stuff, but now thanks to the efforts of local architects, it is a modern and spacious home. One of the main requirements was attention to nature: the new house should be as environmentally friendly as possible, therefore only natural materials and smart technologies were used in the reconstruction. By the way, the owners eventually moved here to live and sold their main house. Great project!
The color scheme and decor in this small feminine apartment were chosen to create a feeling of airiness and weightlessness. Only gentle and very light close to white pastel shades, light curtains and textiles, beautiful modern furniture – this lovely apartment evokes associations with zephyr or marshmallow!
In one of the quiet suburbs of Swedish city of Gothenburg, there is a small oasis with the atmosphere of old England. A few townhouse blocks inspired by English architecture form a private quarter with own territory and infrastructure. In one of these townhouses, designers have tried to create a country house feel with wooden beams on the ceilings, a country-style kitchen, and aged furnishings. The result is a unique home with its character!
This apartment in Barcelona belongs to a blogger and interior designer. In her home, that is located in the XIX century building, she wanted to create a cozy and livable space filled with light and soul. The designer chose a light color scheme with green and yellow accents was chosen which gave the home such a wonderful look! In a big city this kind of design is just a breath of fresh air, besides, there is a veranda where you can sunbathe in the daytime, and receive guests for dinner in the evening.
An old wooden cottage in the woods, a raw wood darkened by time, and … elegant Christmas decor with glossy details! The combination, frankly, not quite expected, but Dutch designers vtwonen decided to play with contrasts decorating such fabulous interior for holiday. If you like dark tones, you’ll definitely love it!
The owner of this cottage in Moscow, Russia, on the first meeting with the designer brought lots of traditional American interiors photographs, so it was clear with the style choice for the project. Vladislav Gravchikova only suggested making it lighter and more modern, taking into account the size of the house. The result of her work – a bright and elegant home in a calm and gentle color range. Bravo!
Scandinavian style is so popular that designers often mix it with other styles for the sake of experimentation. Often the design Swedish apartments can contain notes of Provence, English, loft and even Japanese styles. But today we have something new – a Scandinavian home, inspired by a beautiful historical style of Art Deco. Such a cool dwelling!
All sorts of decorations of gold tones and warm textiles created a real fairy tale in this Spanish home. Such decor in a Christmas interior looks so noble, rich and very festive. In addition, lighted candles perfectly fit into the overall picture and add even more comfort. We hope this design will inspire you to create something like this at your own home!
100 years is quite an honorable age but this historic townhouse in London looks young and bold. Here the mosaic of the beginning of XX century is combined with the art objects of XXI century, and elegant carpets and fireplaces are surrounded by floral furniture, posters and bizarre statuettes. It is unlikely that there is another such home in the whole world, and this gives an even greater charm to the house. Gorgeous!
