In the 18-19th centuries, Connecticut was the most developed industrial state in America, and a large number of factories and mills concentrated on its territory. But with the change in the global economy, since the middle of the 20th century, many entrepreneurs began to close their capacities and transfer production to countries with cheaper labor. One of such industrial complexes was recently converted into a residential village, consisting of 4 residences, a tavern, and a restaurant. Let’s have a look what one of these houses looks like!
Wood, natural materials and a plenty of daylight – it’s all about this wonderful apartment in Spain. Despite the abundance of furniture and accessories, interiors look rather minimal, there is an airy feel here. Cozy balconies with shutters, large windows and olive trees remind of a sunny and hot summer and create an enjoyable light atmosphere in the apartment. Especially we loved the shower area, an unusual sink with two faucets, as well as the fireplaces. Inspiring and very cozy home!

This secluded stone villa is situated far away from civilization, amidst the incredible mountain scenery on the lake shore in New Zealand.

Country home and natural materials is always a great combination. Not every apartment can have wooden beams, a fireplace, a dining area-veranda – all these are attributes of a country house. After all, when from your windows you see a lawn, a garden and a piece of wood, natural materials look incredibly organic. In the spacious and bright house in Hamptons, there are also leather furniture, ethnic accessories, and of course loft style elements. Very cool and inspiring home with an abundance of interesting details!
Aged furniture, vintage leather sofa, shabby decor in the living room and on the contrary modern minimalist kitchen and bathroom.

People in Spanish countryside rarely build new houses, instead, they carefully and lovingly restore old buildings and that’s just awesome.
