Small is cool

Small is cool
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. “the more stuff you put in a room, the bigger it seems” this NYC couple‘s apartment is only 200 ft² (18 m²!!!)

The Selby + Simple Creative Home Posted by rd on Wednesday, October 19, 2011 · 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.. Every area is properly spaced.. First thing that caught my eye was the loft guest bed (sleeps overs not a problem!)..

The Bespoke IKEA HEMNES Shoe Cabinet Posted by ScrapHacker.com on måndag, september 12, 2011 · 7 Comments This hack consisted of making a new, seamless top board to 2 IKEA HEMNES Shoe Cabinets. It´s not the major, obvious hack – but it gives great creative opportunity for customization. The idea for the hack started as I wanted to buy an additional HEMNES Shoe Cabinet (I had already one). The design of the shoe cabinet is the perfect solution for my narrow hallway. One unit is 22cm deep, and 107cm long.

Favorite Architectural Cutout and Texture Resources Architecture visualization can consume a lot of resources and time if you’re not careful. With the tediousness of Photoshop and renderings calculating through the night, spending more that 20 minutes searching Google images for a specific texture or image can become a breaking point for many.

Stylish Rooms for Babies Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about time and how quickly it passes. I think that once you have children, time goes by even faster than before. I can’t believe that 5 years has gone since our girls were newborns. A lot has happened in that time and we’ve been extremely blessed all along. It seems like there are quite a few new babies around me these days and I miss that newborn stage a lot. This is Hem's flag store in Berlin Felicitas Hackmann 28 March 2015 On Saturday March 28, 2015, the online design furniture store Hem opened its flagship store in Berlin Kreuzberg, where some of its 350 own products are displayed.

Explore the lush vegetation, that surrounds this Burlingame residence and let yourself inspired by it!

This topsy-turvy rural dwelling inverts tradition and flips our architectural expectations upside-down – or at least sets them sharply on edge (Photos by Ester Havlova). Usually, building a hillside home means compensating for the exterior slopes – finding places where the natural environment can be adjusted to fit the needs of our flat-footed species.
