How often Scandinavian apartments and houses are blamed for their greyness and coolness. But today’s flat in Stockholm seems like want to prove to everyone: Swedish interiors can be very warm and heartful. And the main reason is the color scheme – gentle shades of beige and brown in this home attract a lot of sunlight and envelop the residents with a warming comfort. Inspiring!
The ideal interior in our understanding is when the first-class design meets magnificent architecture. This is what happened in one apartment in Barcelona: here we have gorgeous space, plenty of natural light, and a great sense of style by designers from Meritxell Ribe. Enjoy!
Simone Harouche had, it would seem, an ideal career of fashion stylist: for many years she was on the list of the best stylists in the US, and among her regular customers there were celebrities like Christina Aguilera, Miley Cyrus, Nicole Richie. But she got the most glory thanks to creating fashionable images for Kim Kardashian. Despite all the success in the industry, Simone recently shocked many with her decision to drop everything and re-qualify for interior design without having a special education. And more recently, she presented the first project – an extravagant, but cozy house of her own. Let’s have a look?
The owner of this apartment of 75 sqm in Moscow lives outside the city, and this flat is used only from time to time overnights in the city or to accommodate his business partners. This fact predetermined the concept and layout of the interior – almost all space was given to lounge and sleeping areas, while the kitchen is quite small. The color scheme is calm and soft, consists of warm tones, while the spaces are designed in modern classic style with art objects in decor. Great project!
Easy and soft interiors in light calm colors, with natural materials, a place where one can found serenity and tranquility – that is how the clients imagined their ideal home. Designer Anastasia Komarova suggested to design the spaces in Belgian style which is based on exquisite simplicity and harmony, and did not fail. Warm sandy-gray hues, laconic forms and eco materials filled the interiors with comfort, making it the most precious place on earth for its dwellers. Pure beauty!
The interiors of this apartment in Madrid is imbued with the spirit of the past, and this is mainly because of the high vintage shutters and ancient wooden supports that it was decided to preserve during the recent renovation. The rustic country motifs were supported by other details of the decor: firewood under TV, wall finish with plaster, rough natural textiles. It is unusual to see such a set in a city apartment, but we have to say this design looks very so unusual and interesting. Enjoy!
Beige, brown and cream tones have an amazing ability to transform the interior. This Madrid apartment has become incredibly cozy and “warm” thanks to them. The designer, by the way, did not make the interior monochrome – exclusively beige or brown – and used these colors as accents. Also, we loved the window that was used as a mirror for the dressing table, and the old fireplace with candles. Particular attention should be paid to the dressing room: spacious, functional, and even with its own window. Wonderful apartment with elegant style and memorable details!
First of all, this apartment in Sweden is interesting for the fact that there are two levels – living room, two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, and the second floor is given to the kitchen, dining room and second living room. Moreover, this home has a cool glass ceiling with a dining area on it. The dining chairs were intentionally made transparent. Also, there are a lot of details of warm color and wooden elements, they perfectly soften the combination of white and gray, bringing to the interior a cozy warmth. A wonderful combination of creative layout and beautiful decor!
Large open space comprising a living room, kitchen and dining room occupies almost all total floor area of this family home in Newport Beach, California. There are several well-defined functional zones here that can accommodate different companies and interest groups. Of course, the family spends almost all of their time here. Through a sliding glass wall, the living room smoothly flows into a small cozy outdoor patio, where there is a swimming pool, sun loungers and a barbecue area. This relaxing atmosphere of an eternal holiday is perfectly in line with life in this part of America.
The building in Barcelona, where this apartment is located, can tell a lot as it was built in the late 19 th century. But despite all the rich history and magnificent architecture, the dwelling until recently was in an abandoned state. Most importantly – it got very little light, the rooms were gloomy and unattractive. It was this problem that designers tried to solve in the first place: they demolished the excess walls, increased the windows and just let in the daylight into the house. Now, it seems that these updated interiors are ready for 100 more years!
