Fawnia Leroux Bedroom, 2017-09-01 16:13:01. What better way to celebrate the ritual of sleep than by constructing a headboard from pillows?! This next DIY idea creates a grid-like design by using puffy pillows in understated shades and patterns. There’s simplicity in repetition, and this linear arrangement can’t help but create a modern vibe.
Huguetta Pasquier Bedroom, 2017-09-11 20:19:46. If you can, consider using a wardrobe unit with large sliding doors to continue the contemporary theme. Mirrored doors are a good idea if you’re restricted in terms of space – they’ll make the room seem much bigger. And resist the urge to add too many accessories to the room. If you take your time and pick out one or two statement pieces, this will have more impact than cluttering up your space with a number of items.

Several such structures were built on the shore, with areas that extend outwards over the water. Also located in Norway, this summer house designed by Marianne Borge and Kjetil Saeterdal manages to somehow make its inhabitants feel like they’re outdoors when they’re actually inside. It’s all about the openness of the spaces and the fact that the house has huge panorama windows.
Celesse Legrand Exterior, 2017-03-17 07:00:08. 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.
Aiglentine Dupont Exterior, 2017-03-11 07:10:54. A beach house isn’t really complete without floor-to-ceiling windows or some other design strategy meant to connect it to the views. This house designed by Martin Gomez Arquitectos is a very good reflection of this idea. It’s located in Punta del Este, in Uruguay. In order to be able to frame these beautiful views, studio Element Arkitekter AS designed this house in Rogaland, Norway with a rather odd-looking top floor that’s partially cantilevers and resembles a periscope. Up here, a glazed wall overlooks the water and the land in the distance.

Fleur Prevost Exterior, 2017-04-07 08:00:55. It’s a bit tricky sometimes to choose a site for a new house. The views might be beautiful but they can’t always highlighted so before they bought this site in Särö, Sweden, the owners of this house wanted to make sure they could make the most of the location. The end result was just as envisioned: a beautiful house that opens to the views. It seems that everything is mirrored in the case of this residence designed by MU Architecture in Canada, everything except for the views that make each space feel like a natural part of the landscape, like an extension of the panorama that can be admired through the floor-to-ceiling windows on the ground floor.
Advent Fournier Bathroom, 2017-03-26 02:37:21. The heart of your bathroom is the bathtub. If you have a freestanding bath, one that is not recessed or positioned next to the walls, then why not go for a red one? An old fashioned claw footed bathtub can be given a highly contemporary twist with a splash of red to update it. Complete the look with a funky wallpaper design or some red tiles on either the floor or the walls. Going heavy handed with red can make for a bathroom that is too oppressive, visually speaking. Nevertheless, with a subtle touch a very red bathroom can be pulled off. Select small tiles that have a highly reflective surface so the color does not appear to be even in all light conditions. Use plenty of light fittings, which should be bright white, and set to shine over the red surfaces. Break up your red walls with sections of pure white. Go for a white floor and white closet doors.
Chantrell Meunier Exterior, 2017-04-15 08:00:33. The street facade is covered in fireproof timber and has a very understated and simple look. There’s a small private courtyard in front, sort of like a buffer zone between the internal spaces and the street. The wood on the facade is stained and has a rich finish which contrasts with the galvanized steel elements. The North facade, the one facing the river, has a totally different structure. This is an all glass facade which doesn’t exactly give much privacy but, at the same time, exposes the internal spaces to the expansive views. The glass also contributes to an overall look that’s robust on one hand but also open and airy on the other hand. Such contrasts are actually quite common with this project.
