Adolpha Dieter exterior, July 29th , 2017. Somehow, the idea of living in a concrete house doesn’t sound that appealing and that’s because of the cold nature of this material. 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.
Abella Babin exterior, July 29th , 2017. 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.
Lucas Abelen kitchen, July 29th , 2017. Go down the traditional route with this rustic style of kitchen. You can spice up your conventional wooden kitchen with splashes of warm red. This colour scheme is perfect for the current cold months. In direct contrast to the previous colour scheme, we now have a cool palette. You can’t deny how elegant and classy this kitchen looks. When going for a frosty feel it’s best to use highlights rather than an overall shade of pale blue.
Aceline Barre kitchen, July 29th , 2017. The trend of making use of old, worn materials or items is a must in green living. As you can see in the above image, a salvaged cabinet comes alive in the kitchen, giving it an interesting piece of furniture that could have been part of a living room in its previous life. By leaving salvaged items a little worn and torn, this further makes them unique creations in the kitchen, while preventing waste in the environment. Stone in the kitchen is always a great natural material, but you can also choose from stone countertops that are made from recycled materials. This takes the green initiative one step further. Stone can be trendy and colorful, as can be seen from the countertop in the above image that is made from recycled wine, beer and Vodka bottles.
Adolpha Dieter kitchen, July 29th , 2017. Sometimes 4” or 5” of wall depth is all you need to go from chaos to uber-organized. This wall of hooks for pots and pans proves this. More accessible than they would be crammed into a cupboard or deep drawer, these pots make very efficient use of what would otherwise be wasted wall space. This unique and wildly efficient cup/mug hanger simply slides onto your existing shelf. It requires no screws or any other assembly. This is a highly effective use of the “dead space” that inevitably falls in the top 1/3 of most cupboards.
Lucas Abelen kitchen, July 29th , 2017. Pastel colours have been running riot over the past year or so. 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.
Adal Arbeit kitchen, July 30th , 2017. Concrete is a great idea for use as a countertop material. Not only is concrete durable but it comes in a variety of colors that can liven up the kitchen. It is versatile to work with different styles and design options, so there’s no worry about it not lasting for many years.
Julian Achterop kitchen, July 29th , 2017. The seating you use in the kitchen should definitely be comfortable, but stylish too. Find the perfect mix between the two ideals by choosing dining chairs. These add an elegant touch to the room while creating a relaxed atmosphere.
Adaliz Bader kitchen, July 29th , 2017. If you don’t want them near the ceiling or you think it’ll draw the space inward, then use a table. If you’ve created a makeshift island, then create a makeshift cabinet by hanging them up underneath! Use a coat rack or another thrifted piece as a pot rack. Grab some metal or brass hooks and then situate the piece according to your need. You can create a wall for your pots too. Instead of just hooking up a rack, create something a bit unique. A chalkboard wall, with each pot’s outline will make an artistic spin on the usual organization. Section out a nook to keep the pots and pans hung and accessible but without them in view. Use a space underneath the island, breakfast counter or cabinets.
Adalicia Bellerose furniture, July 29th , 2017. Once you cut the board to size, set the mirror in the middle and measure and cut the trim pieces. Then stain each piece except for the detailed trim pieces. You may need to sand them first if the wood is treated. Leave them to dry and during this time spray paint the remaining trim pieces white. Only do one coat. Then attach the mirror to the board with wood glue, add the trim pieces and enjoy. A different design can feature a simple frame with straight cuts. You can build it yourself or use one you already have. If you choose the first option, secure the boards together with screws and make some holes for carriage bolts. Then stain the frame and seal it. Allow it to dry. To attach the mirror to the frame, use a picture hanger and basic mirror hooks.
