Even on 38 sqm it is possible to create a modern, stylish, and most importantly functional interior, and this Polish apartment successfully proves it. This cool small home has a kitchenette, a dining room, a living room and a full bedroom. The design of the rooms was inspired by mid-century style with the addition of modern furniture and decor pieces. In addition, the color scheme is fresh and hip, with turquoise, white and gray making a great combination. Enjoy!
When the architect Laurent Lo Monaco bought an old townhouse in the 20th district of Paris several years ago, it was an abandoned small home with little light and dark narrow rooms. Having completed his studies at an architectural university, Laurent was enthusiastic to make his first project for the future portfolio and to create a bright and comfortable home for himself. The renewed interiors are filled with the spirit of the past: bright colorful furniture in retro style and elements of graphic design intertwined here in a wonderful combination. Bright and stylish!
In 2018, the Sound View hotel on Lond Island will celebrate its 65th anniversary. Although recently the hotel has undergone a thorough alteration, the atmosphere of the middle of the last century still resides here, and the building itself in the New England style of modernism continues to fascinate guests of the town of Greenport. As it is common for any estate by the water, here we have panoramic windows and lots of verandas and balconies – in such places everything is intended to help to enjoy the ocean. Perfect combination of vintage atmosphere and coziness!
Scandinavian style is so popular that designers often mix it with other styles for the sake of experimentation. Often the design Swedish apartments can contain notes of Provence, English, loft and even Japanese styles. But today we have something new – a Scandinavian home, inspired by a beautiful historical style of Art Deco. Such a cool dwelling!
This guest house in the Swiss Alps can be rented for a weekend – in 2015 it was renovated from an old wooden chalet. The interiors are quite unusual – the abundance of wood, typical for such houses, are mixed with elements of retro style, and even floral motifs that can be seen in wallpaper and decor. In total there are 8 bedrooms, 3 living rooms, and several terraces. An interesting feature – every room has a bright bathroom: pink, blue, white, and all of them are decorated in the style of 50’s and 60’s. But the best place, of course, is a veranda overlooking the mountains. Fascinating!
The Hoxton is not a typical hotel chain and opens its hotels only in the most prominent cities within trendy locations. The concept implies beautiful historical buildings, stylish interiors with retro feel and the absence of unnecessary expensive services. We already posted two of their hotels (in London and Amsterdam), and today we are happy to share photos of the new hotel in Paris. It is a beautiful 18th-century building, a progressive 2nd district of Paris and a wonderful design from the best local studios. Enjoy!
This old house built in the 40s once was a home for current owner’s mother, so the main goal for the renovation was to carefully preserve the past while creating comfy modern interiors for a young family. As a result, there is such a noticeable contrast between the facade and the interior design. Outside, the house is dark and even slightly gloomy. But inside you will find a whole variety of textures, material, and colors. The interiors are noble, stylish, there are many different prints, retro furniture and vintage accessories. The perfect combination of past and present.
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!
Retro and classics could not be better friends like in the interior of this apartment in Paris. Furniture of the 60’s neighbors here with stucco and crystal chandeliers. By the way, such bright colors (blue, orange, pink), are not typical for Parisian interiors, but what a wonderful mix they can make when used properly. A special mood in the apartment is also created by numerous photographs and paintings, unusual mirrors and lamps. Looking at this interior, you understand what is a real Parisian chic!
Before the renovation it was a large open space, but interesting zoning and some architectural solutions made this Lyon apartment very unusual and cool. The mezzanine floor with two bedrooms and study was installed which now can be accessed from the living room. A guest bedroom, a kitchen and a bathroom are located just under mezzanine floor, and the living room has double height ceiling. The decoration and finishing are just awesome: magnificent beamed wooden ceiling, fragments of a stone wall, as well as cool retro details. Such a wonderful apartment!
