A house for a big family is always a challenge for a designer as it’s not easy to create a home both stylish and maximally functional. The huge total area of this residence in Denver, Colorado, fortunately helped to clear up and implement all the design ideas. The first floor is reserved for rooms where the whole family can spend time: a kitchen-living room, a quiet lounge-zone, a study and a stunning stylish bar that even hotels can envy. The second floor is a family area, with bedrooms and bathrooms. Bunk beds in kids rooms are so cool as they are convenient to climb, besides, they do not spoil the image of the house. And, of course, the heart of the residence is the verandas and backyard, it is difficult to imagine a more beautiful place to relax with friends and family.
This minimalist loft in Stockholm actually consists of two separate apartments on different levels connected by a staircase. Each level has its own kitchen, living room area, balcony, bedroom and bathroom – in a word, all the attributes of a full-fledged housing. Of course, the main space is located downstairs where the owners receive guests and have rest. At the same time, the upper spaces are used rather as guest rooms. Enjoy!
This modernist apartment in Barcelona needed a fresh look and a modern breath. Large openwork windows, moldings and antique batteries look original, but it was also important to let the 21st century into the house. The designer started by repainting the black fireplace in white, then complemented the vintage furniture of the 1920s with details from the 50-60’s, and finally some pieces of modern furniture. The interiors were not overloaded with complex colors and bulky items, but there was a place for such interesting objects as a hanging robe over the bed or a stack of magazines in the fireplace. Very light and inspiring home with old touches!
Outside, this house in Melbourne is almost unremarkable – a small white building in Victorian style with a narrow path that leads to the entrance. But it’s worth going inside, as you understand, that here is a completely different world. The modern interiors with lots of wood finishes, large windows, the space designed for a large family with an active lifestyle. However, comfort and functionality are valued here no less than beauty and style. All rooms combine wooden elements and bright details. The veranda, which you can relax, dine or play sports, is both in the backyard and in front of the house. It’s amazing how sometimes the first look can be deceiving!
The Basque Country is an autonomy in the north of Spain with its traditions, its own Basque language and amazing landscapes. It is there that this rustic style house is located. Wood, white furniture and bright details – the interiors are filled with comfort and sunlight. There is a veranda where you can sunbathe in summer, and there is a library under the roof. By the way, no TV in this house – the sofa zone surrounds the fireplace and panoramic windows overlooking the mountains. A great combination of simplicity, ease and homie atmosphere!
This Moscow apartment not only has an outstanding area of 600 sqm, but also breathtaking views of the Canal. The whole space of the living room “works” for this panorama: the sofas and chairs are facing the window, and the TV was placed in another room – the area allows this. In addition to the main rooms, there is also a draft kitchen, laundry room, pantries. The client, a young couple, did not want their home to look trendy, but rather to be modern, functional with unique decor pieces. A real dream apartment!
Despite expensive furniture and art pieces in decoration, this modern ranch in the South of the United States is ruled by imperfect natural textures and surfaces. The wooden floor, paved with irregular boards, walls as if roughly covered with plaster, raw natural stone and metal – here they decided not to touch what nature has made. Very contrasting and exciting interiors!
Rental apartments usually are not taken seriously: we think that we will not stay here for long, and do not consider it necessary to spend a lot on decoration. But often people rent a home longer than planned, though it does not bring full joy and comfort. In this New York loft, everything is different: when the young family rented the apartment, they immediately decided to make this place their “sweet home”: a cosmetic repair was done and the rooms were filled with things that were close to their heart. Well done!
Nobu Hotel Shoreditch in London attracts not only with chic contemporary interiors but also with impressive and memorable façade. The gorgeous building has beautiful balconies with terraces, which cascade descend from the top down – this design is not very typical for the English capital, but it certainly makes an impression. Inside there are laconic interiors in black and gray tones with golden accents, the designer played here not only with forms and texture but also with different cultures: there are both European and Japanese design elements. And it’s not accidental because the hotel is famous for its Japanese restaurant, headed by chef Nobu Matsuhisa.
Who said that loft space must be gray, cold and rude?! This New York apartment breaks stereotypes about such kind of interiors – colorful furniture and decor look just great here.
