This unusual yet handy design concept is by Daisuke Motogi. Here is a description from the designer: Ã¢â‚¬Å“Things often get lost under the sofa. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ordinary for a coin which slipped out of your pocket, or a never-to-be-found remote to be accidentally found in between/underneath the sofa cushions. Maybe youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll find a forgotten 10,000 Yen bill that you once hid thereÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ Via
The Secret Garden indoor/outdoor collection has been designed by Thai home furniture company Ayodhya Trade. The Secret Garden Table is a mosaic of various greens and textures that recall landscapes ranging from Tuscany’s rolling hills to the exotic Amazon rainforests. Each table in the collection is comprised of various kinds of moss encased within a transparent glass tabletop. While the moss is dried and not alive, you can breathe a sigh of relief knowing you never have to worry about it dying and disappearing when you forget to water it. Via
This corten steel and rock dwelling was constructed in 2002 by South African based architecture firm studioMAS. Westcliff Estate is located on a site that offers expansive views of Johannesburg and the Magaliesburg beyond. The landscape is interconnected with the building structure with its squat, mushroom shaped columns that are supporting a swimming pool above. This modernistic building features giant stone walls and large open spaces surrounded by a natural environment of grass and trees.
The sculptural and beautifully executed columns, frame the view to the living room, the terrace, the swimming pool and the panorama beyond. With the electronically removable glass faÃƒÂ§ade to the north, one has the uninterrupted panorama of the worldÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s largest man-made forest as a work of art to view across a gymnastically poised spillover pool. A dramatic slide-away roof also becomes a climatic device in winter to gather the warmth of the sun and cool summer breeze.
This one-of-a-kind 7,066 square foot residence strives to set new standards for modern design with flawless functionality in Cherry Creek North, an exclusive neighborhood in Denver, Colorado. Located at 5th and St. Paul streets, the home anchors the corner of this neighborhood. Drawing from the principles of mid-century modern architecture, the interior embraces the exterior directing sunlight throughout the two-story space. The design’s elegance of form is enriched by the use of natural materials. Walls of Colorado Rose sandstone, smooth sandstone veneer, and polished concrete block interlock with stainless steel and glass. These materials combine to create a truly unique, modern yet comfortable, urban living environment. Architect Patrick Beaton designed the residence with the Design Principle/Co-owner at Site 7 Solutions.

This stunning residence is located in Los Angeles, California by the Manhattan-based residential design firmÃ‚Â Willey Design. The design firm is known forÃ‚Â their thoughtful and refined approach in expressing their client’s points of view with provocative and luxuriously designed spaces. Willey likes to blendÃ‚Â different period styles together with classic and modern furnishings infused with bold colors and proportions to create elegant sophistication in the interiors. Comfort and function are the two main criteria that are important when creating a design scheme, along with practical details. The designer always starts with the carpets and builds up from the floor. ForÃ‚Â Willey, the rugs are just the starting points for building layers of color. He does notÃ‚Â like a place that looks like a decorator just waved a wand, did everything in two shades of one color, and then stepped out the door.
To Willey, there is nothing more boring than repeating a single color throughout the home. If he is using green in a space, he will use six shades of green, creating a space that appears that everything has come in at a separate time. To build layers in a space, WilleyÃ‚Â is always thinking about how to balance the natural light in a room with color. If you live in a place that has dark and dreary days, amp up with the space with bolder colors, then on sunny days the rooms will just light up.Ã‚Â Willey also seems to have a tendency to use either matte or glossy (the reflections create the illusion of a higher ceiling) white paint on the ceilings. The reason for this is to provide a nice frame for all the color, toÃ‚Â temper the intensity.Ã‚Â
Willey never creates white-on-white spaces, he feels there is no joy in the environment, and it feels more like a posh retail store. Walking through bold and colorful rooms creates energy and the color choices reflect one’s personality. Willey gets away with mixing bright colors throughout the spaces of a home by using fabrics and rug selections that are not muddy and messy patterns. Since his colors do not mix together, the rooms are like flower arrangements, where strong colors can work together because each flower has its own separate, unique personality.
“Interior design should not be considered an experience for only the well-to-do, but for anyone interested in improving their lives by surrounding themselves withÃ‚Â what brings them joy. For me, great design is a healthy blend of smart investment items mixed with offbeat selections, realizing the space’s full potential with a breath of fresh air,”Ã‚Â says Willey.Ã‚Â
A restored barn in Belgium has been given new life by renovating it into a habitable open floor plan home. The center core houses the living room, kitchen and family dining area. With a large fireplace as the main focal point of the room, the home is a mix of new modern furniture and refurbished antiquities. The original brick has been preserved as the main structure of the building, with a glass wall built on one side of the house to close off the structure, but still bring in plenty of daylight. The light over the dining table and the deer head mounted on the wall gives a hunting cabin ambiance to the space. There are bare hardwood floors throughout, with area rugs strewn out to separate the different living spaces in the home. The open kitchen has been designed with all the modern day equipment, but with a very sterile feeling with its stainless steel countertops and white glossy cabinetry. The wood from the dining table and chairs helps to break up that sterile feeling and bring warmth back into the home.
