Characteristics

Art Deco interior design is mainly associated with the World War I to World War II time periods. It s a style that s the embodiment of the Roaring 20 s, exuding bold and flashy. It borders on the bombastic yet maintains a fundamental elegance. The most defining aspects of Art Deco are:

  • Layered lighting: which is essential in creating the right atmosphere. Sconces and torchères beam light up or down to cast a flattering, sultry glow.
  • Polished and shiny chrome or brass fixtures.
  • Geometric shapes. Angular patterns, stepped designs and bold curves all highlight the look.
  • Furniture: lacquer, polished wood and metal, and glossy paint combine for a slick and gleaming effect.
  • Sprinkle glass and mirrored pieces throughout an art deco room to add to the reflective quality.
  • Graphic patterns and sleek textures. Mix vinyl, silk and satin for layers of tactile interest; choose rugs, carpets and upholstery with geometric, rhythmic motifs.

Ah, triangular buildings! This one in Oporto, Portugal was constructed in the 19th century with a footprint of 52 sq.m. A2Office molded the original structure in to a building with four modern studio apartments. Stripping it down to its remaining viable components was the first step. These included the solid log floor joists, which were given a boost in strength. The top floor corner construction was removed, as it did not meet today’s standards. Historic documents guided the creation of facade colors, interior shutters, and new windows. A new timber stair resides where the former narrow and dilapidated once traveled the four levels.

DIY interior design ideas

A good home interior design is a necessity to spend your everyday life in a cozy and productive manner. One might hire a professional interior designer to decorate a home but this costs a fortune for most people and the interior design turns out to have a lot of the designer s taste instead of your personal flavor. In case you can dedicate time to DIY interior design, then you can have a rush of marvelous ideas for a home designed in an affordable way with a high sentimental value!

It might be tricky to know where to start with all the DIY interior design ideas. Therefore, it is suggested to start off your idea chase by making a garage sale which will increase storage and living space, and make you acquainted with the interior design of your home. After a complete clean-out, you can begin applying the simplest DIY interior design idea which is painting the walls. All walls inside a residence can be re-painted with simple DIY instructions, even wall tiles can be sanded and repainted.

DIY interior design ideas for walls also include sticking wallpapers to highlight a certain wall as a focal point in a bedroom or living room. If you have a study or work area, you can stick inspired words on the wall behind the office for motivation. Whether you use wall paper or paint to DIY interior design, using natural color palette ideas can enhance the overall setting in a classy way. Use creamy and beige neutral design colors to brighten up or widen up a room s interior, and use dark colors like chocolate brown to warm the room up.

You can have ever-changing DIY interior design ideas by installing a chalkboard or whiteboard in the kids room or play area. You can then use it in spare time with your family to design murals and have fun competitions when you want to. Making DIY interior design ideas more inviting and family oriented can be down by framing pictures of special family gatherings and events like graduation ceremonies.

Other interesting DIY interior design ideas include placing elements of nature such as your favorite house plants in the living room. Cat owners can make a DIY cat door so the cats can go in and out without making a hassle. DIY ideas can also increase the interior design dimensions by the placement of mirrors in differing sizes and shapes on walls or on side tables to reflect accessorizing vases.

BROX Design began as a hobby for Ivan Radosavljević Predrag Bozovic, over 16 years ago. And, when we spoke with Ivan, he told us Deep inside it is still a hobby, as we do it with our hearts. Today it is a business with expertise in graphic, interior and web design; as well as fashion and leather goods. Their client list includes big brands such as Harrods, Armani Jeans and The Four Seasons Hotel.

.design represents an important step in the promotion of our company. It is a simple and effective tool to broadcast what we do.

Roko.design is the website site of Rodrigo Montoya Sarmiento. He began his career in design when his father taught him how to create images and art in the early Mac paint software. He began by creating comics, stories and other worlds, and has since become a professional architect and interior designer. When asked how he felt about his new .design address, he told us, I actually feel that I can get in to a closer dialogue with my potential customers using www.roko.design as my main page.

It is the new way to discover new talents and new studios through all over the world.

//3877 is a design firm that primarily works in architecture, but they also offer interior design services along with brand development and graphic design. They’re style? Clean and contemporary. As for why they switched to .design? “Because it talked more about our brand. We don’t want to be a mainstream firm… .design says that we are a bit different and we are okay with that,” said David Shove-Brow, Partner at //3877.

“it speaks more directly to who we are and what we do. com. net, etc are too generic…we don’t need to be in the same mix as lawyers, accountants and other businesses…we want to go after a more direct audience.”

Home Decorating Trends Homedit

It s very easy to recognize a Scandinavian interior design. But there isn t just one Scandinavian style but several and they all have certain elements in common. For example, all Scandinavian interiors have wooden floors, most often light and they can be seen in all the rooms apart from the bathroom.

The color palette in Scandinavian decors is very light and simple and it usually includes shades of gray and blue as well as a lot of white. Sometimes bold touches of color can be seen here and there.

In general, all Scandinavian interiors feature clean lines throughout and this includes the architecture, the furniture and everything else. All such spaces are also always very functional. In terms of material, there s always a lot of wood in the décor. It s used on the walls, on the ceilings, on the floors and on the furniture. The wood adds warmth and texture to the room.

One of the things you often expect to see in a Scandinavian home is one of those traditional fireplaces placed in the corner of a room. The fireplace is not the focal point of the décor in the room and they have simple designs and shapes. In fact, Scandinavian decors are minimalist throughout and they usually lack accessories and purely decorative details.

Here is a little weekend inspiration! Enjoy.

“The essence of interior design will always be about people and how they live. It is about the realities of what makes for an attractive, civilized, meaningful environment, not about fashion or what’s in or what’s out. This is not an easy job.” – Albert Hadley

We shape our homes , and then our homes shape us. Winston Churchill

Dining room at Chartwell

“I believe in doing the thing you feel is right. If it looks right, it is right.” – Interior designer Dorothy Draper

Buy the best, and you only cry once.Interior designer Miles Redd

Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury. Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel’s Paris Apartment

The difference between good design and great design is intelligence. — Graphic Designer Tibor Kalman

Minimalist rooms can be so beautiful, but I can t live in one; I love objects too much. Interior designer Bunny Williams

When it comes to art, buy with your eyes, not your ears. I tried very hard not to decorate with art. Art should be reflective of your personality and what s going on in your head not reflective of the colors of a sofa. Hotelier Jason Pomeranc

Apartment of Jason Pomeranc, decorated by Steven Sclaroff.

I must have books everywhere. They re the soul of a room they reveal the taste, the interests, and the secrets of whoever lives there. Fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg

a house is much more than a mere shelter, it should lift us emotionally and spiritually. – Interior designer John Saladino

I have to say, I’ve really enjoyed this week on the blog, it’s been kind of crazy. From an apartment on top of a Norwegian ski jump to your very own Tasmanian (dream) island hide-away you could never say I don’t shake things up a bit! Since it’s the end of the week I feel it’s perhaps time to come back down to earth. But this lovely family home in Stockholm is far from ordinary. Owned by Petrus Palmér, the founder of Hem design studio and shop, wife Madeleine and two year old son Alvar, the house is full of beautiful textures – from light wood and concrete to marble, cork and linen, and of course. many wonderful items. Let’s take a look around.

You can read more about this beautiful home in Residence here (one of my absolute favourite Swedish interior magazines).

And before I shoot off for the weekend, here’s a little link love to enjoy when you have a moment:

Curious to know what happens when Parisien style is brought to a Swedish apartment? Take a look here.

For the sweet toothers among us, how mouth-wateringly good does this fluffy smor dip look. It’s either that or this (or both?!). Or even this (someone stop me!).

This is where I’d like to go this weekend. what do you reckon?

Have a wonderful couple of days and see you Monday!

PS keep an eye out for my give-away on Instagram this weekend!

Thursday, 8 September 2016

Located off Bruny Island in southern Tasmania, this small island formerly belonged to a writer, painter and poet. And now a family has transformed it into Satellite Island. an off the grid hide-away in untamed Tasmanian wilderness. Your own private island to share with family and friends where you can wake to the sound of sea birds, fish from the boathouse jetty, explore the waters by kayak or simply enjoy the scenery from a deckchair (guh !). Oh and did I mention the beautiful rustic vibe of the summer house and boathouse? The only real way to finish the day would be to watch the sunset with a glass of chilled Tasmanian wine – don’t you think. Can someone please whisk me away here?

Source: these beautiful pictures were taken by Kara Rosenlund and shared with kind permission.

I mean, could you imagine.

I wish I could say – and I’m holding a give-awayto stay here for a week. hahaha! I don’t think I’d be able to give the prize away if this was the case. But maybe we could share it. Satellite Island are you listening?

Now this might sound crazy, but there are a few ideas to steal from this beautiful haven (hey, Tasmania’s far away, it’s nearly the weekend, we can do tropical too, right?):

Bedroom. source Kilim rugs to overlap here. Kitchen. industrial white pendant light. white Tolix chairs. Sitting room. source beautiful denim blue stonewashed linen by the metre here (how’s that for a quick update for an old sofa?!). Bedroom 2. find stonewashed linen bedding in these shades here .

In need of more ‘paradise’ inspiration? – I’m also loving an ethereal beach house on St Barths, a villa in tropical gardens in Brazil, and a long term favourite of mine – a little touch of paradise on Mykonos. And yes, you can stay at all of them! Which one first.

I’ll leave you to dream!

You don’t have to spend much more to get a simple pendant light installed, and it can add a daintier touch.Mirrors: These can be a gorgeous and inexpensive way to dress up the style factor, especially when you opt for bevelled edges, unique frames or even an antique design you picked up at a garage sale. “I never use ‘bathroom’ mirrors!” says Gold Coast interior designer Sandy Cousens of Sanctuary in Style .Niches: Those little cubbies next to bathtubs, within showers and set into walls are a great idea to nab from luxury bathroom designs. “They cost very little extra if you are gutting a bathroom anyway, just a bit of extra carpentry,” adds Cousens.

There’s nothing timid about this style, which radiates flash and dazzle. Seductive curves mingle with razor-sharp corners, while posh materials and shiny finishes emit an air of luxury.

Instead, Neuhaus created a hybrid solution fusing contemporary and period design that blends the architectural heritage of the brownstone with its inhabitants’ modern perspective and lifestyle. The house exterior and architecture was treated as a metaphorical envelope and would retain its period integrity. Interior features like the cabinetry, bathrooms, furnishings, light fixtures, staircase, etc. were seen as the contents of the envelope and therefore could serve as contemporary insertions into the space.
