Room Design Ideas

What is interesting is how we like the idea of what is presented but the practical application of the ideas, in the US anyway, would not go over well. There are no doors on any of the rooms, no closets, no cabinets, merely shelves with curtains.
There are a lot of ways to make a nice bedroom, but for kids there is an element of excitement that is just as important as bedroom size and style. As these pictures illustrate, a cool bedroom for children can be a virtual fantasy world in itself – in this case by making the outdoors the driving interior design idea and central concept of the bedroom space. Complete with climbing ropes, ladders, swings and all kinds of hidden storage spaces, this bedroom brings all of the elements of an outdoor play space inside and makes the room feel like a self-sufficient home at the same time. The best part, of course, is the tree house in the center of the room – who would not have enjoyed that as a kid growing up? Though this kind of cool bedroom design for kids can of course be contracted out to someone else like Kidtropolis , it is also perhaps an opportunity for a fun do-it-yourself project that engages children in the activity of designing and building their own space.
An email was sitting in my box this week from photographer Brian Park . Brian has always been generous with keeping us up to date with his work.

first image 'new office on the roof' by bold designs, paris, france lapinture from the on off crew (talented and multi skilled friends) to create a mural image © bold-design paris-based practice bold design has transformed an unoccupied rooftop space within the heart of paris, france into their new office. co-founders william boujon and julien benayoun have decided to renovate an old machine room which previously housed a motor lift. the enclosed area of 170m2 has never been occupied but the shell has been affected by its weathered past. the studio drew the plans for their future office, assuming a minimum budget as the primary constraint. the team paid particular attention to economy of means and space. the organization of their new studio reflects a collaborative work ethic with custom built features for a simple and fully functional work configuration.

I recently discovered The Selby , and here is a home, more or less 1000 sq ft., bursting with neutral colors making it 'bigger' than it actually is. I really love the combination of open planning and simple palette in this home.. Everything's seems within reach but doesn't appear too crowded..
if you choose to live on your own as a young person (and i say this assuming that you don’t earn major bucks or perhaps you live in an expensive city – or both) you will probably be faced with the reality of renting a studio apartment. unless you’re an investment banker, or you won the lotto, or your granddad left you a sweet inner city pad the size of an ark that he bought back in 1950 for R500, or you’ve found some 3 bedroom palace with wooden floors and a working fireplace that’s being rented out for tuppence. if you’re one of those people, please don’t pity me. for i might be jumping on the studio flat bandwagon one of these days, and of course in lieu of that, the first thing i consider is HOW TO DECORATE. zach motl lives in a 178 ft² studio apartment in brooklyn. that’s 16m² folks… he’s an interior decorator, which explains why his flat looks the way it does.
