Fountain Tab Faucet by Jin-sun Park & Byungmin Woo My Faucet Is Better Than Yours Your Morning routine: head to the sink, open the tap, water pours down, brush your teeth, and gargle with cup.My Routine: head to the sink, open Fountain Tab, water flows upwards (with the push of a button), brush my teeth, no cups for gargling…just lap up the water directly from the faucet. I told you so, my faucet is way too cooler than yours! Designers: Jin-sun Park & Byungmin Woo Soft as a Rock (by @baekdal) #design Rocks, stones and pebbles have been used as decorative objects since... well... the stone age actually. But, rocks are usually a bit hard to be around. They often look cool, but you wouldn't exactly hug one - until now! Stephanie Marin is the creator of these amazing looking stones, which is actually very soft and comfortable cushions. Made of 100% virgin wool no less - although I have absolutely no idea what makes wool "virgin"... was it never used before? Or is it from sheep that have never had sex?

Lofted Forest Home: Organic Curves & Natural Materials Good things come to those who wait – particularly in a work of uniquely detailed and highly curved architecture. Nearly a decade in the making, this structure by Robert Harvey Oshatz is much like a tree house – lofted toward the top of the canopy around it – only bigger, grander, more complex and curved than most any tree house in the world. The perimeter of the structure is pushed out into the forest around it, curving in and out to create views as well as a sense of intimacy with the coniferous and deciduous tree cover. The wood and metal detailing is incredible in its variety and customization – each piece designed to fit a particular form and function. Wood and stone carry naturalistic themes from the outside in and even the metal looks naturally rusted.

THOUGHT PATTERNS: Kaleidoscope of Colors I've always leaned towards browns, blacks, creams and earthy colors in home decoration, that's the boring in me. But, I don't know, I'm kind of starting to like bright colors more. Kaleidoscope kind of colors, like turquoise, fuchsia, pink, aqua, violet, yellow, orange... all combined together. I admit that could be a bit retina-searing sometimes, but if expertly put together... it looks something like this... I am absolutely in love with the "Jester" sofa, and the paper lanterns. Even the fruit matches! All-in-One Glass Sink + Countertop ‘Sinks’ into a Basin « Dornob Word plays aside: a clever and singular countertop quite literally ‘sinks’ to become the basin portion in this sleek all-in-one bathroom sink idea. Modern Minimalism at its finest, a simple smooth modern gesture composed of a single line of curved glass serves several functions. With the faucet set off to the side the composition of this entire fold sink construction from Exence is attractively balanced with Modernist planes and volumes, but it is clear that the main design move is the glass portion, revealed via a likewise transparent glass face. The rest of the plumbing, physical support and vanity storage spaces are set off to the side in a solid and dark structure that is clearly made to contrast with the light, clean and clear centerpiece of this cool contemporary sink-and-counter combination.

Modern Home, Interior & Furniture Designs & DIY Ideas There is something magical about the ways in which water can flow across various forms and surfaces. That path of water is often lost in a conventional sink design but found again here in these designs by Kanera. Though they come in various shapes and types, with one faucet or two – connected or separate – the common thread between these brilliant basins is the complexity of the curves that make them up. Wall Decals inspired by Mother Nature - Wall Decals have been creating quite the buzz lately and more and more people are using them to decorate and transform everything from living rooms, kids rooms and nurseries, even bathrooms and glass. The designs are fun and installation is a breeze. However, as you are searching for your perfect design it is important to note that not all wall decals are created equal.

Sky Garden House - Architecture Linked - Architect &Architectural Social... I think one of the reasons that many are skeptical about environmental design is because they think its terribly complex and costly. It does take a bit more effort on the front end, but it's definitely not rocket science. This architecture by Guz Architects is a wonderfully developed minimalistic design with a curvilinear flare that really brings out the organic coverings. I'm most impressed with how design facilitates the needs of the plants and shrubs located throughout the house.

Reversible Sink Faucet Functions as a Water Fountain « Dornob It is such a pervasive daily annoyance that most of us have just learned to live with: bending over, craning our necks and turning our heads sideways just to get some water out of the bathroom sink to drink or rinse our mouths with. Designer duo Jinsun Park and Byungmin Woo, however, have had enough. They have designed a simple system for switching between down-pouring and up-spouting water so that any ordinary sink (commercial or home) can double as a drinking fountain. The direction of water flow is reversed with the simple push of a button and the overall design has elements of both a standard sink and a facility to drink from. All in all this is another great example of solving a universal problem most people take for granted.

How To Design A Two-Room Apartment With Style Having a small apartment can be a drag when it comes to implementing the desired interior design idea. Here is an example of a two-room apartment which is both very aesthetic and functional. So how did they do it?As you can see, the home plan features a hallway, two rooms (left and right), a kitchen and a bathroom. In order to achieve a high level of practicability, the designers took advantage of every single corner of the house. The hallway(the area with the red wallpaper) is welcoming and also has some integrated furniture elements such as a small table and an armchair.
