Apartment Therapy
Project by: Nelly ReffetLocation: Perth, Australia From the designer: My clients, Maya, blogger at House Nerd and her newly-wedded Mr Nerd have been living for a few years in their first home, which they lovingly call "the Crap Shack". When they bought this house in Perth, they loved that it was flooded with natural light, that it was a comfortable size, that it has a large backyard and that it has a lot of potential. That means it also came with a long list of renovation projects that they are trying to tackle bit by bit.

15 Cool Alcove Beds Home design DIY Kids Weddings Fashion and Style FOOD Cool stuff 15 Cool Alcove Beds Alcove beds are naturally fun for kids. Although they could be very practical in contemporary living spaces so they are good for adults too. 23 Ultra-nifty inventions (to solve problems that don't really exist) Almost none of these gadgets solve real problems, and the ones that do only make things more complicated. But that’s not what matters, right? They’re cool — even if they are hopelessly impractical — and that’s what counts… Ironing Board with Mirror

Hydraulic Living Room Car Lift Rides Right into Your Home Ah, to be rich enough to simply drive into your underground garage onto a lift and be carried right into the heart of your living room – or at least to be able to implement other creatively luxurious interior design ideas like this one. A moving platform – finished with wood slats to match the surrounding floors – lifts up and down on a hydraulic system at the push of the button, almost like something out of a spy movie. Takuya Tsuchida (Photos by Koichi Torimura) twisted arms and fought building codes for his client when seeking to install this unique horizontal, in-house garage door and elevator system.

Bottle Reworking Link to Bottle Labels I consider bottle slumping to be one of the really boring activities in the world, but I will share some information about it since everyone who gets anywhere near a kiln seems to be interested in it for a while. The problem from my point of view is that unless one gets really creative, there are only a limited number of things one can do: stretch the bottle, flatten the bottle, make a spoon holder, make an ashtray. [Some people have made societal comment by arranging slumped bottle shapes in ways that suggest comment on mechanical and tired society - "Preacher and Choir", "Exhaustion", but that is more art than slumping, I think, and not me. 2002-07.] To change the form of a bottle all you need is an oven that can reach about 1400°F, which all pottery kilns and most glass annealers can do easily. For the result to survive cooling, either the kiln must lose heat especially slowly or there must be a controller that will take the temperature down slowly.

French By Design In the busy Mitte neighborhood, Berlin’s creative district, Emmanuel, a 1950s design aficionado, lives in this cocoon. The flat is filled with a mix of modern art and fifties French collected finds. I love how sophisticated the space is, and exhibits a true unique character. Special, big, huge crush on the cosy library corner and the gorgeous… Read More ► How To Make A Stylish Photo Frame For Several Photos Here is a simple yet stylish photo frame that can accomodate quite many photos at once. The idea is very simple. Fasten twines on the empty frame and hang photos using clothes pins on them. You can use a frame you bought or a frame you made by yourself.

30 Most Useful And Creative Things Useful and practical design solutions that not only decorate, but also greatly simplify the life. 1. Carpet with slippers 2. Derinkuyu, or: the allure of the underground city My friend Robert and I finished reading Alan Weisman's The World Without Us almost simultaneously – and we both noted one specific passage. Before we get to that, however, the premise of Weisman's book – though it does, more often than not, drift away from this otherwise fascinating central narrative – is: what would happen to the Earth if humans disappeared overnight? What would humans leave behind – and how long would those remnants last? These questions lead Weisman at one point to discuss the underground cities of Cappadocia, Turkey, which, he says, will outlast nearly everything else humans have constructed here on Earth.

The 27 best free VST plug-ins in the world today The internet is now awash with free VST plug-ins - you’ll find instruments, effects and others that defy categorisation. However, while it’s great to have so many to choose from, this weight of numbers means that it’s difficult to work out what’s worth having and what you should steer clear of. Of course, you won’t lose out financially by downloading a dud or two, but to save you a lot of time, effort and potential disappointment, we’ve compiled a list of the best free VST (and Audio Units) plug-ins in the world today. Our shortlist was put together based on your nominations from 2010, when we ran our first poll, and 2012, when we put the word out that our list was being updated. The final positions were decided by MusicRadar users votes. Before we get down to business, we should also remind you that our sister magazine, Computer Music, features a slew of exclusive plug-ins on its cover disc every month, so if the software on this list doesn't satisfy you, try that as well.
