The dark interiors do not necessarily have to be gloomy and boring, and this house in Chicago is excellent proof. Contrasting colors and unusual artwork create an atmosphere of creativity here and make the interior look unlike any other. If you look at the details more closely, it may even seem that the interior tells a story, and all the items in their places are not just that. Hope you also like this unusual and catchy home!
French designer Christophe Collado owns a small vintage furniture store in Lyon, but you will not find lots of aged pieces of furniture or antique decor in his apartment. This is a fine example of a trendy modern design – black panels, modernized beams, minimalistic furniture. Christophe says that he did most of renovation works by himself and some design elements are handmade (like, for example, the headboard of plywood in the bedroom). Such a stylish home!
86 sqm is not a big space for a London apartment, especially with two bedrooms. But the owners of this apartment in North Kensington perhaps are not too upset by this fact as they have their own backyard – for summer barbecues and kids games. And a beautiful natural light flooded conservatory dining room with a chess floor and family photos. What a lovely home!
This modern London townhouse has some not quite typical of the English style, but very trendy features: brick walls and dark surfaces. But still, there are enough of traditionally English things in the interiors: the beautiful classical fireplace, a bay window in the living room, private courtyard accessible from the kitchen, and some pieces of English furniture. All together the home turned out to be very expressive and stylish!
Today we want to share a purely Scandinavian, but very cozy modern wooden house in Finland. Raw industrial elements and white color are beautifully mixed with natural wooden surfaces shade and expressive accents of black color. There is nothing superfluous in the house, only the most necessary furniture and decor. Excellent option for a summer house or a weekend-home!
Paris is all about inspiration and this bold apartment was created by inspiration for sure. The furniture looks and feels so easy and bright – as if someone just created it here in passing. It may look rough, but it’s only the first impression, that quickly disappears. Then you realize that only the most creative designer could do that. A bright yellow color brings air into the interiors. Here the style is higher than the rules, more than trends, stronger than ordinary. A house of fresh thinking and clean ideas.
Designer Claudio Bitdinger-Gassen chose for this French apartment of 70 sqm unexpectedly bold color scheme: mostly dark shades, both in the main living room and in the only bedroom. Vintage leather sofa and black fireplace added even more drama to the interior. Not without the colorful splashes in decor: a bright carpet in the living room, pillows, books. Of course, not everyone would like to live in this apartment, but the design is definitely worth seeing!
When the kitchen is stylish, comfortable and expressive, then it can “make” the interior of any apartment or house. Take a look at this beautiful modern kitchen in a Parisian apartment – comparing to the rest of interior it stands out with its contrasting black color and minimalist aesthetics. While the living room is usually the heart of the house, in this home it is the kitchen that plays the most important role. We can assume that the owner just loves cooking and spends a lot of time in the kitchen. Enjoy!
Wood and dark surfaces – this bachelor home in Chisinau, Moldova is very laconic and austere. Even the kitchen here is securely hidden, it’s not easy to understand where it is located. The living room resembles a modern private cinema with a comfortable leather sofa and a large screen on the entire wall. Brutal minimalism!
When actress Ellen Pompeo of popular medical drama series “Grey’s Anatomy” bought this old barn in a wooded area just outside New York, she planned to completely rebuild it into a large family residence. But a couple of years later the plans changed and a large family holiday house was purchased in the sunny Malibu, and it was decided to leave the cottage as it is – small and cozy, for short and quiet weekends after a busy work. Thanks to Hancock Design studio it has become a very stylish modern barn. Enjoy!
