Celesse Legrand Exterior, 2017-03-17 07:00:08. Would a concrete house look out of place in a forest clearing or on a plot where the only neighbors are the trees and grass? Well, yes and no. Look at Konieczny’s Ark, a project developed by KWK Promes in Krakow, Poland. It’s a house that was shaped by the site on which it stands in the sense that given the remoteness of the site, security was an issue so the architects found a clever solution: to design the house in such a way that only one corner touches the ground while the rest of the building hands over the edge of the hill. This solution also reduced the risk of landslide as rain water flown naturally under the house. So, you see, even if this concrete box doesn’t really seem to blend in at first, it’s actually very well adapted to its location.

Here are some ways you can ensure a greener kitchen. Make use of your kitchen’s natural light which can save you money on electricity bills and make your home much warmer. You can achieve more sun by making the most of the southern exposure of the home so that additional light will stream into your kitchen on a daily basis.

If you have one, you probably have seven… just in your living room. With all those leafy greens, it’s easy to run out of space on your bookshelf and coffee table and every other surface your home provides. So before you start thinking about buying more bookshelves, let me introduce you to your best plant-loving friend, the plant stand. These towers and tables are made for giving your emerald beauties a place to call home. Check out these 13 plant stands and see which might best fit your houseplant collecting needs.

Add the help of plywood, foam and batting, and the project comes to life. The power is in the headboard’s height, which draws the eye upward, making the room look taller. Don’t forget the nail head trim! Here are two more do-it-yourself headboard projects, each one unique yet similar in the low, rectangular design. The first idea (below, left) shows DIY enthusiasts how to refresh an upholstered headboard with new fabric. The second project (below, right) uses decorative molding to create a picture frame for the outline, then fills in the center with fabric-covered plywood.

You can use this in the playroom or as a fun accent piece. This is another project you can dive into and try to DIY yourself with a bit of decopauging or find your own chevron piece out and about on your shopping adventures. Again you can find both throw and area rugs in neutral tones and popping colors, but either way you’ll provide interest to the floor and break up anything that’s too dull for your personality-filled home.

You’ll want to measure your counter height and make sure there is enough space between the bar stool seat and the bottom of the counter. A 10”-12” difference is recommended for optimum comfort and functionality. Metal has many benefits as a bar stool medium. It is durable, easy to clean, and stylishly versatile. Metal bar stools also tend to be visually lighter-weight than other types of stools, which is definitely something to keep in mind. By their very nature of being wood, wooden frame bar stools tend to carry more visual punch than other materials, which are able to be manipulated for weight-bearing capacities. Wooden frames can be quite versatile, as they look fantastic in a cottage setting as well as provide a lovely earthy contrast in a more contemporary one.
Irene Arbore Exterior, 2017-09-06 15:40:19. The geometry of the City Villa is a very interesting one, being the defining feature of the design ARRCC created specifically for this project. 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.
