Jennifer and Pat, owners of this stunning home in Berkeley, went to California in search of a new life for themselves and their daughters. Tired of the mad rhythm of Manhattan, they were looking for an old house surrounded by greenery. And they were lucky enough to get the amazing house – a wooden mansion built in 1915. It was in good condition after the previous owner, but the repair still took a year – it was necessary to find vintage furniture of that era and bring the look closer to the 21st century. As a result, now it’s magnificent interiors made of wood with authentic furniture and bright accents. We are sure that the family has never regretted moving to the west coast.
Iceland is one of the most unusual countries in the world, with a bad weather and many unique natural wonders. Tourists go here for unforgettable emotions and unity with nature.

The interiors are decorated in atmospheric dark colors, adding even more drama to the overall impression. Magical!
If you really think the spring is too cold this year, then just watch photos of this wonderful Scandinavian winter cottage.

Designer Elena Potapova carried the project of this house in Kaluga region, Russia, from the foundation to the small decor. The wooden cottage of 410 sqm had to be equally comfortable for all family members (parents and four kids). There are two living rooms – one connected to a kitchen, the other – isolated, for family concerts and lessons on the piano. In addition, almost every room in the home has its own color history: gray, blue, turquoise, beige, pink – the home looks fresh and interesting. An excellent project!
Wood, natural textiles, and color palette give so much warmth and coziness to this winter cottage in Norway, that you would definitely want to spend some unforgettable days in such a beautiful place.

In the interiors, touches of modern Scandinavian design are felt, which adds a little elegance to this wooden home. Ideally!
This mountain cottage in the Aran Valley in the Pyrenees is one of the oldest in the area, so inside the windows are very small and little light gets inside. The owners did their best to take this circumstance into account during the recent reconstruction and painted the wooden surfaces inside in light tones. Now it is very difficult to believe that only a few years ago it was a dark and unattractive home. And look at this mega cozy zone by the fireplace!
The clients asked designer Nicole Davis to create a home where they could have warm family gatherings any time of the year, a place to make memories and to feel safe and comfortable. And most importantly, the views from the windows should become an integral part of the interiors. Creating a design, Nicole drew inspiration from nature and surrounding landscapes, so the color scheme consists of light natural shades. Of course, the house has many wooden surfaces, but the lines and shapes are refined and modern. Very light and calm dwelling, filled with air and coziness!
The interiors of this Swiss chalet Lucine look modern and sophisticated thanks to the strict dark elements of the decoration, which together with the wooden base of the house create beautiful contrasts.

Black outside, white inside – this recipe works great in this cozy wooden cottage, where one family from Sweden found its harmony.

Hope you’ll like it!
