It is as if an exquisitely restrained, minimalist interior has been inserted into a 19th century timbered house. Colour is used sparingly and when it is, coloured blocked «boxes» contain the new. The stark contrast between old and new heightens the impact of both. Maison à Colombages by 05AM Arquitectura.
You’re uninvited to Alanis Morissette’s house; the rocker is selling the property in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles that’s she’s called home since 1996. You oughta know how it looks inside. (далее…)
Michelle’s work with her client Natalie was done entirely over the internet, which makes this already impressive project kind of unbelievable. Thanks to Instagram and the One Room Challenge, Michelle and Natalie decided to collaborate on her living room from different cities, bonded together by a love of color, pattern and bold choices. The end result will make you want to throw on your finest caftan, plop some ice in a gold-rimmed tumbler and just bask in all of the living room’s fabulousness. (далее…)

They’re often bandaid beige, placed in inconveniently prominent spots, and sometime they’re just. so. big. While most of us wouldn’t trade in our a/c or heat, there’s little question that they detract from all the good visual stuff we do have going on. Check out these examples of how to take on these ugly-as-sin features, and win. (далее…)
You already know your home has a story. You can literally see it when you strip away 30 years of paint off an old brick wall, like I’ve been doing this summer.
