You’d definitely have plenty of privacy and security but how would such a structure have to look like so it could more or less fit in a usual urban or rural setting? An answer to this question can be the house designed by Anako Architecture along the Rhone in Switzerland. The project uses concrete as a primary material and the house looks a lot like what would be a modern and stylized version of a fortress. It has an unusual form which mimics the silhouettes of the Alps visible in the distance. Walls of raw concrete define the facade and set a border between the interior spaces and the surroundings.

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.

The building is located in Carmel, California and was designed by Sagan Piechota Architecture. It’s a contemporary, two-storey home placed on a remote and extraordinary site. When designing this retreat in Anguilla, in British West Indies, duo Frank Alfred Hamilton and Cecconi Simone chose to use a palette of simple and neutral materials and colors and to let the views become the focal point and the main attraction. They enter the house and they complement the interior decor while also opening up the spaces.

Their designs adapt to a variety of styles but, regardless of that, they always a certain bohemian flair about them. Vanity tables are always accompanied by a chair or a stool and a small makeup vanity can also include other accessories such as mirrors or extra storage. The vanity stool is just as important as the table or cabinet itself.

From mint green, to candy pink, to luscious lemon; these shades are enough to make your mouth water. I don’t know about you, but I can just picture a doting mother and her daughter baking cupcakes in a kitchen like this. Black and white may seem like a safe option to go for, but when you bring gloss into the equation you not only maximise the shine but the style as well. Monochrome is bold, striking and contemporary, plus it’s relatively easy to use as well.

You can rejuvenate its design with some new upholstery or paint and you can even change the style completely. So remove the cushion top from the base and then use faux fur to wrap the stool. After you’ve covered the top, you can spray paint the base using your favorite color. Put the stool back together and you’re done.

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.
Adaliz Bader bathroom, 2017-11-15 00:37:46. Most powder rooms will be short on space and have enough room for a toilet and wash hand basin only. Toilets don’t vary very much but by introducing a non-standard basin into your room’s design you can set the tone for the rest of the decor. If you find the right hand basin, that suits your tastes, it will be a good starting point for the rest of the design. White porcelain hand basins are perfectly fine, but they are ubiquitous. Consider another material instead. Wood, plastics and brushed metal are all very good alternatives. And if you decide that you want to stick to the classic porcelain basin, why not go for a more unusual shape to make it a bit more of a feature?
Aceline Barre bathroom, 2017-11-15 00:37:40. 1. You could house all bath toys in a plastic laundry basket on the bottom shelf of a cabinet. (Of course, roll-out drawers are a bonus for accessibility, like those seen here, but not always a possibility.) One of the reasons this is a good idea is because your kids can access the toys they want to play with prior to playing in the tub, and they can also help put them away after bathtime.

In his collection named for the Italian master, Knibb has taken the humble but iconic garments of modern society — jeans and t-shirts — and turned them into a work of art in marble. The designer says that at a distance, the table’s surface appears to be the disturbed surface of water. Indeed, when we first saw the pieces at ICFF, we weren’t sure what they were until we got close enough to see that the marble relief was clothing, including the finest of details: Ribbing, frayed hems, buttons and belt loops. It takes two Italian sculptors about about 700 hours to carve one of these tables. In a media interview, Knibb said that the first carver does a rough cut, and then second refines the piece, adding the details. Not only do the pieces look incredibly life-like, wrinkles and all, but you can see the veins of the marble in these amazing works.
