Brick House Secret Passage Bookshelves If there’s one dream that unites all bookish folks (aside from, you know, universal literacy) it’s the dream of having a secret passageway hidden behind a bookcase. Ok, maybe it just unites some of us- but there’s no denying that there’s something super-nifty about having a bookcase that moves to reveal a space only you know about. You and your builder. Anywoot! Nothing says old money like a piano and a room hidden behind warm wood floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. This kid’s bookshelf opens to a secret reading nook. …Harry, are you in there? A secret passage in a gothic library that opens to reveal…a table for tea? I’ll just be over here, hanging out with ALL THE WHIMSY IN THE WORLD. For the minimalist in the family. Because sometimes you should have to climb a ladder to reach your secret passageway. I feel like this would be in the Beauty and the Beast library. Old school like the old school. For when you need to hide your Cold-War-spy era desktop computer.
Nordic Design - From Scandinavia with love decorology Small Spaces Good Design For Living in Small ApartmentsAs people migrate to smaller spaces, good design helps a lot. This is something they figured out in Europe long ago, that if you don't have a lot of horizontal room you can go vertical. Tumidei in Italy makes some of the nicest stuff, like this unit with lots of storage under the bed. This unit just raises the floor high enough for beds to slide under. This one looks a bit clinical, but has two single beds plus a pull-out double bed in between. When you read in the New York Times that professional couples with children are moving into small one-bedroom apartments in Manhattan and sleeping in closets, perhaps this stuff could be useful. None of this stuff is cheap, nor, as far as I can tell is it available in North America, but there are ideas here that demonstrate how people can share a space and still get a little privacy, a good place to work and a lot of storage in a very small envelope.

Hus & Hem Svenngården Hotel Design Using Wallpaper Hotel design is big business. To have a thriving and successful hotel you want the interiors to be inviting and a place where weary travelers can lay down their bags, gaze around and say, “wow”! Whether it is chic contemporary style or a more traditional classic style the one thing that can really make a difference is the right wallpaper. No one does design and fashion like the Europeans. When it comes to hotel design they are ahead of the game. The absolute pinnacle of luxury and style would have to be European hotels.
