The owners of this Californian home in California has a very interesting profession – they are winemakers, and their dwelling is part of an old winery. Over time, the house fell into decay and it had to be preserved. It was decided to make the house more modern without significant alterations. It turned out to be minimalist and stylish. We especially liked the kitchen with a panoramic window, the area by the fireplace and the bathroom on the second floor. It’s so easy and elegant, a house with a history can really find a second fascinating life!
This spacious apartment on the 28th floor of one of the Kyiv skyscrapers was designed for a woman who lives alone, so the space was not divided strictly into the rooms but left open with a lot of air. The natural wood and concrete were decided to combine with bright and gentle tones, unusual furniture and accessories. One of the wishes of the client was to create a zone for practicing yoga, this place was decorated with a small garden, which looks interesting in contrast to the panoramic windows and views of the bustling metropolis. Amazing home, where space and freedom are felt as much as incredible energy!

The interior designer Helen Bergin turned this old New England style 1949-year cottage by the ocean into a chic eclectic home. Helen wanted to play with shapes, textures and prints. The result is an interesting contrasting interior: the atmosphere of the tropics, and outside the severe Atlantic Ocean. This impression is enhanced by the grey stone fireplace in combination with palm trees, blue surf and floral ornaments. “We wanted to make the home to look fun and at the same time experiment with different design styles,” says Helen. And this game was definitely worth the candle!
When designing her own home, the Birgitta Pearce faced a problem: it turned out that she herself was her most difficult client. A century-old house in Dutch colonial style required a serious renovation, and when you develop something for yourself, it turns out that there will be no comments like: “Here I would like to see something different, and here add another detail.” However, as if Birgitt was not strict with herself, she and her husband managed to create a truly beautiful home, where the severity of the Scandinavian style (Birgitta was born in Denmark) and the brightness and lightness of the casual coastal living were combined. Enjoy!
All the coolness of the concrete surfaces in this loft in Austin, Texas, were diluted by the sophisticated modern furniture and wooden decor elements. Thanks to this, the interiors do not feel lifeless, but on the contrary, they have cozy and look very stylish. By the way, this is a real industrial building, converted from an old factory into a cool dwelling for young and progressive. Enjoy!
Designers of Smith Hanes call their project in Georgia “a residence in a soft industrial style.” Indeed, in design, there are lots of signature style details such as leather, glass, metal, brutal decor, but at the same time, the image was diluted with soft tones, flowers and lovely decor. Black and brown in common areas are contrasted with blue and white in the bedrooms and living room. The combination of contrasting elements in the interior almost always looks good and effective, this trick has worked here too!
Parisian interiors always differ not only in their elegance and style but also in their unusual approaches to solving design questions. In this apartment, for example, the designer came up with a wonderful partition for the kitchen – it visually fences the kitchen from the living room and dining room while not overloading the space. We also loved the bathroom floor tiles – honeycomb fits very well. Not to mention the amazing blue fireplace and the cool green sofa. Great example of modern French design!
This modern cottage in the suburbs of Stockholm is harmoniously blended into the untouched nature by the lake and is now an important part of a local landscape. Glass walls, open terraces, and natural materials in decoration here practically blur the line between the interiors and the surroundings, making the house an ideal place for those who are looking for complete unity with nature. The interior design is minimalistic yet stylish and cozy. Great project!
The living room in this modern apartment in Stockholm resembles an auditorium – the ceiling height of more than 4 meters, open space and large windows are provoking such thoughts. Since new housing built nowadays usually do not have such characteristics, it’s easy to guess that the loft is located in a former industrial building, or to be more exact – an old factory. The designer task was to create a feeling of a life in one of the New York skyscrapers. Great project!
