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.

Concrete is not warm or soft or pleasant to the touch like wood is for example and that gives it a bad reputation in a certain sense. But what we don’t take into consideration in those cases is the versatility, durability and in a way also the beauty of concrete. All of these are characteristics which can be exploited in great ways by architects and designers and these dream concrete houses are perfect examples.

This is a modern family home located in South Africa. Its design is a collection of rectangular volumes placed on top of each other. Some of these volumes cantilever to the sides, forming terraces. A stone wall contrasts with the concrete, adding texture and diversity to the design. Other contrasting elements include the brass front door which was custom designed and all the glass surfaces.

These vinyl decorations come in all sizes, shapes, colors and designs. If you can’t find what you need, you can even order them custom made. Then, once your child outgrows the design you can simply remove it in a matter of minutes. Although every parent wants their child to stay small forever, sometimes it’s best to pick options that allow them the room they need to grow.

In turn use those extra cabinets free of pots for dry food. These come bit or small, so grab a circular rod and hang them up! This is a great option for a more spacious kitchen. Peg boards can give your kitchen an eclectic, industrial edge. And they’re easy to install and use, you can create an entire peg wall or just a space for your most-used pieces.

In order to capture the airy feel of a penthouse apartment, you need to cut the clutter right back. A good way of doing so is to invest in a chic leather bed with drawers. These provide the luxurious modern look with room to hide away all your various bits and pieces. And if you want a large flat-screen TV in your room, look at bed options which will house the TV in the foot of the bed – it’s a great way to achieve the minimalist look.
Celesse Legrand Interior, 2017-09-05 02:35:02. Following the latest trends is rarely a good idea when decorating a space. A much better idea is to be yourself and to use timeless pieces and things that you love and that make you happy. This way you’ll still love your home the next year and the year after that, long after trends have come and died. So if you live a certain color or fabric or a style which is not fashionable at the moment, just go for it and forget about what’s trendy. Pair plain colors with interesting fabrics or with patterned pieces. This way you’s establish a nice balance between all the elements and you’ll create harmony. The resulting interior design will be charmingly simply but definitely not lacking character, style and uniqueness. This combination often defined luxurious designs so always try to get the best combo.

The U Retreat was designed by IDMM architects on a steep site overlooking a sharp vertical cliff and nature and the surroundings had a lot to do with its unique design. The forms of the cliff and the trees that surround the building were inspiration for the forms and layouts that define the concrete structure.
