When they were asked to design an extension for a house in Bedford Hills, NY that dated back to 1974, Robert Siegel Architects envisioned the new structure as a modern, bright and open volume, with the new master bedroom framed by floor-to-ceiling windows and with a small terrace on the side. That’s exactly how they designed it. This is the Observation House, a structure situated on a hill, in the highest portion of a village in Bulgaria. The site was chosen for its panoramic views and the landscape that surrounds so, naturally, the I/O Architects team looked for ways to highlight these features and to turn them into focal points. They managed to do that by designing the house with glass walls on all sides.

This three-story family home in Pliezhausen, close to Stuttgart, is one of those cases. The house was designed by Steimle Architekten who gave it an unusual crystal-like shape. The unusually angled concrete facades offer an unexpected advantage: wonderful views of the surroundings. It’s a design that opens the house to the outdoors in an unusual but great way.

For a house that tries to close itself off as much as possible in respect to the street and the neighbors, this family home has surprisingly open spaces and facades. This unusual combination was achieved by moarqs + OTTOLENGHI architects by combining two contrasting materials: concrete and glass. The design strategy was to have a more open ground floor while the first floor is closed and private. Both floors have full-height glass walls but the difference is that there’s a concrete shell which wraps around the upper floor, framing the spaces and blocking the views but at the same time allowing them to be fully open to the courtyard.

This can create the perfect transition between two seemingly disparate spaces, if that’s what you need. If natural, earthy tones speak to you in general, then keep this look going in your bar stool choice. There are plenty of beautiful neutral bar stools out there…and you’ll know that, with its being neutral and all, you will love it in your home. Nothing blends in quite like acrylic, and bar stools made this way are no exception. This adds a sleek, contemporary, almost commercial feel to the bar space. Upholstered seats are, as a general rule, certainly more comfortable than their non-padded counterparts. But there are pros and cons when considering upholstery on a seat that sees more than its fair share of staining potential.

Here are some tips on choosing the right dining room chair design and not being afraid to step out of the box. In a modern setting, one of the most powerful décor staples is a flair for something vintage. Cherner chairs are an example of how a flash from the past (in this case the 1950s) can become an interesting design in a contemporary dining room. A unique chair style prevents the room from becoming boring any time soon.

You can fit lots of different compartments for things like plates, cups, wine bottles, glasses, etc. It’s very practical, especially if you also plan to use the island as a bar or breakfast table. Open shelving is very practical in the kitchen because it lets you easily grab the things you need without having to open and close drawers or cabinet doors. They’re also great for display. In addition, shelves make the kitchen seem more open and airy than closed cabinets. Keep all kitchen essentials handy and store them off the counter. For example, hang your utensils on the backsplash and have small shelves on which to store all the tiny spice jars. This way they’re always within reach.

Adhering to this tried and tested framework, we came up with a list of catchy bedroom designs which not only borrow from the conventional school of thought, but also add a innovative little twist that makes them unique and inimitable; making them audaciously creative and innovative, but, above all, quite simple to replicate and bring to life.

To make your own plywood headboard, take a trip to the local home supply store and purchase a few simple items: one large sheet of plywood, sandpaper, stain and sealer. Yes, it’s that easy! When you’ve sanded, stained and sealed your headboard, set it behind the bed and enjoy the earthy statement it creates.

Usually the corner space in any room is wasted space and this may not be a big problem in the living room or bedroom but in the kitchen any inch of space is valuable. So take advantage of the corner space and install drawers or open shelves. If you want to keep the knives off the counter top and close at hand, you could have a custom-designed piece like this one. The knives are stored inside the counter top. Such a design comes with restrictions. The knives must be completely encased so the blades don;t interfere with the contents of the drawers. I find pullout shelves to be very practical. It’s usually very annoying to have to get a dish or a pan at the back of the shelf and this system makes things a lot easier. Pull-out spice racks are also very functional. They occupy very little space and they’re easy to use.
