    I’m loving the current tropical leaf trend, aren’t you? From clothing patterns (I have a pair of tropical print camouflage pants that I adore) to patterns for parties, the home and beyond, it’s such a fresh and inspiring take on greenery that veers a little away from the paired-back Kinfolk lifestyle which incorporates lots of houseplants to something more tropical and vacation-like. I love seeing leafy greens used as decoration in unique ways outside of the typical potted plants, too. And of course, you can bring this trend into your home outside of the…

    Nabire was a 31-year-old Northern White Rhino who called Czech Republic’s Dvur Kralove Zoo home until her death, which was announced Tuesday. Nabire suffered from uterine cysts, which made it impossible for her to breed naturally, and a ruptured cyst led to her demise. In December 2014, the world’s Northern white rhino population dropped from six to five after the 44-year-old male named Angalifu died at the San Diego Zoo. With Nabire’s passing, there are now just four of the rhinos left on earth – three females and one male. Because none of the females are capable of carrying…

    Launched last month at NeoCon, the Nuno chair by Gabbertas Studio for Allermuir uses lamination as a structural component whereby the leg frame and the seat are integrated and interdependent, providing strength for each other. Nuno was borne out of a desire to approach a traditional design typology, the multipurpose stacking chair, from a new perspective Minimizing the need for a separate steel frame structure under the chair, the clever use of lamination allows for a closer stack as well as a visually refined and pared down profile. The seat lamination incorporates subtle dimensional shaping…
  • Foliage-Inspired Furniture: Hospitality Trend

    The delicate curves of the humble leaf serve as inspiration for these foliage-esque furniture designs.   Inspired by leaves and stems, Marc Thorpe’s Morning Glory tables for Moroso are made from powder-coated welded steel rods and laser cut bent steel plates. Like the fan-shaped leaf of the ginkgo temple tree, the delicate veneer shell of Ernst and Jensen’s stackable Ginko chair for Erik Jorgensen Furniture forms an organically shaped seat with a strong sculptural appearance. The easy chair is also available with a plastic shell and a seat cushion where the cushion acts…

  • The Magic Of Not Trying So Hard

    24 Jul 2015 | 4:10 am
    I’ve been thinking lately about life and what really makes “a good time” good and it always comes back to having friends, someone you are partnered with (if they add happiness to your life), simple times like sloshing through mud puddles giggling with your children or making homemade bread, and letting a lot of laughter into your life – sincere, genuine, from the heart. I also think a home that I feel proud of qualifies here because I can’t really enjoy life without feeling at home in my environment. I never realized how overly sensitive I am to…

    I discovered a ceramics studio recently that has been active since 1945 in Australia by the same family —  Have you heard of Robert Gordon? They have a factory outside of Melbourne with a staff of 30 and have recently taken on an agent in the United States, too. They not only design pieces for everyday living, but work with restaurants to produce custom made pottery which made me think about my own cafe/design shop dreams and how wonderful it would be to have custom wares for it someday. Well imagine that. They recently did a fit out for E.P. in Los Angeles, so location and…

    A few years ago I spotted a micro “foodie” trend in Germany and today it’s slowly starting to take off – food trucks! Today I have a book to share with you all about them and where you can find the best ones in the country. As an American, food trucks are as common to me as the corner coffee shop and went from trend to a staple in mainstream American culture many years ago. It never dawned on me when I moved to Germany that, outside of festivals and Christmas markets, food trucks run by creative cooks were not common at farmers’ markets and…

    I can’t wait to show you the new little sofa in my living room that arrived from Berlin! It looks so sweet and acts as the perfect placeholder for the larger one I’m about to order for the opposite wall (I’ll put this baby elsewhere once it arrives). I’m in the process of renovating this room but for now, this little sofa looks so sweet. Later, it will go in another room since my apartment has enough room for it to move around – something I really love about living in this place other than the abundance of natural light. This darling sofa is the…

    French architect Jacques Rougerie has envisioned a giant floating city which bears a striking resemblance to a manta ray. He discusses his love for the ocean in an interview, where he calls himself a “mérien,” a term he coined which translates to “one belonging to the sea.” His dream is for likeminded individuals to populate his City of Mériens, to conduct research on the surrounding ocean.

Taking advantage of the climate in Northern California, the architects covered the wavy roof in solar panels.

Introducing angled lines and undulating surfaces to create a direct visual contrast against straight and flat elements, the architect deconstructed the interiors in a subtle, unobtrusive manner. Even the little details(like the customized picture of black and white photography) which decorate the walls are arranged artfully in an atypical collage arrangement to tie up with the design concept.

    Hope Ranch Estate was envisioned by DesignARC as a home with a traditional exterior, visually blending in its landscape. According to the architects, the four-bedroom home “occupies a south-facing view lot in Hope Ranch, a suburb of Santa Barbara characterized by narrow winding roads, horse paths and native oak trees. The three-acre grounds are carefully planted with native flora, designed to stitch the grounds into the surrounding landscape, but which also strategically conceal a solar panel array”.

    Designed by architect Irene Escobar Doren , the Cube House in O’Higgins Region, Chile is a contemporary addition to a small village of fishermen. The first step in building the residence was to “raise the house on piles, condensing the structure in two levels and a terrace on the roof; and solving the interior space in a compact volume whose dimensions were determined by the optimization of the chosen building material.” The cube-like volume has a black exterior in order to save heat during night time, when the temperature drops and the wind intensifies.The architects’…

Undeterred by the condition of the building (it had served as a shop for the late master woodcarver Miles Karpilow), he instituted a creative live-work space that can evolve with his needs.

    Few things manage to hit just the right note of elegant simplicity, but the Stockholm Sideboard by Mario Ruiz for Punt is perfectly pitched. Quality materials, fine detailing, and the absence of drawer pulls creates a minimal luxe look, while the elevated sides add an extra shelving space that will keep books and artifacts* safely placed. Something like this is surely customizable, yes? Of course. Choose between pale rose or gold for the top shelf edging and white, black, stone, or dark brown for the slim legs.

We buck the trend by going the paper route. Cue Papertrophy. The mastermind behind this iconoclastic company, Dr. Holger Hoffmann from Berlin, was inspired by classic animal trophies (author Ernest Hemingway in Africa comes to mind), but rest assured these gorgeous minimalist creatures were never alive.

The 20″ diameter size was perfect for his round dining table and the white shade provides added clear white lighting that the space needs.

    The Fifth Annual Los Angeles Food & Wine Festival returns next month, August 27-30, for a back to back three days of jam packed events city wide. I attended last year and it was the epitome of finest chefs and wine tastings one can ever experience. I had the opportunity to experience some great food tastings from rooftop at the L’Ermitage in Beverly Hills to an outdoor evening event under the skyline of downtown LA.

    This DIY is a mixture of things I spotted on Remodelista: The Three Block Shop scarves hanging in the dining room at Ostrich Farm in Silverlake, Izabella's post highlighting a printing technique that utilizes adhesive foam board and a block of wood, and Julie's post on hanging wall art with metal binder clips. I'd logged these ideas as attainable decor improvements to consider for my own apartment.

The husband and wife pair—known for such pieces as the Molded Plywood Lounge Chair (1946, Lounge Chair (1956), and Tandem Sling Seating (1962)—are two of the most important designers of the twentieth century. Their designs became iconic works being studied, lauded, and often outright copied. But what made the couple's work so prolific and significant?

    Now that Don Draper finally nailed the ultimate account and Mad Men has disappeared into 1970 forever, I’ve been binge watching the whole thing all over again on Netflix. There were so many fantastic moments of graphic design, fashion design, even hair design (and some not-so-good ones, those ’70s staches and sideburns were not doing the characters any favors). But most of all, I loved to watch Mad Men for the spot-on 1960s set design. There are too many to count; with all that Eames, Saarinen and other mid-century icons lurking everywhere.

    A sublimely simple plan informs the Dog Trot House by Dunn & Hillam Architects. The brief: to design a holiday home for a family, that would have the informality of a campsite. They wanted everything they loved about camping except the need to pack up at the end of every holiday. The name comes from the design, houses divided into two free standing structures with an open passageway between to connect them. The idea is that the open, shaded passageway in the center is a place a dog can trot on days when it’s hot. The dogtrot passageway between the public and the private spaces is…

  • Floating Pavilion Guest House Suggests Monet Painting

    Susan Kraemer
    20 Jul 2015 | 3:17 pm
    Wirra Willa is a tiny pavilion guest house that seems to float on the lily pond, creating a scene straight from a Monet painting. The tranquil guest house was designed for his father by architect Mathew Woodward in New South Wales, Australia, on an 80-acre former citrus fruit orchard. It comprises simply a bedroom at one end, a living room at the other. On cold winter nights, the living room offers a toasty fire. But the living room floor can slide back and now it is a hot tub room that contrasts its heat with the cold lily pond outside. All of the glazing supporting the roof disappears,…

It is an astonishing feat of privacy maintenance while fully opening a very urban home to the view. The translucent glass has a lovely turquoise wash, reflecting the nautical theme of the view.

Based in Thailand, Sai uses alot of negative space in her instagram photography.. which is one of our top tips in the Bloesem instagram classes. Using negative space allows the viewers' eyes to be immediately drawn to the focus of the image.

    Powder room sinks with unique personalities help set the styles for guest baths — from modern to traditional. Here’s the thing about powder room sinks: the focus is often on the style of the vanity instead of the basin. But for me, the sink’s the thing. That’s why I especially favor statement-making sinks in powder rooms. A fabulous lavabo can be mounted on top of a conventional vanity, or on the wall, on a piece of furniture, or even on top of a plank and still make the point. The more original and memorable the sink, the more successful the look.… Continue ReadingThe post…

    As a backsplash to set the tone for a neutral kitchen there’s nothing like dimensional honeycomb tile. When an internet mogul built a vacation home in Costa Rica, Atlanta designer Beth Webb was hired to create the décor. Channeling the dark, rustic Latin look of homes in Central America, and mixing it up with the needs of second home for upscale clients, the result was classic, elegant and yet slightly exotic blend of whites, creams and taupes. In the kitchen [top] that meant a neutral scheme, one of subtle richness based on Ann Sacks’ dimensional Nottingham honeycomb tile in Veil. A…

    French Bistro shelves are making cameo appearances on kitchen islands and counters. Like most shelving in the kitchen, these traditional French bistro shelves have a specific character which can make them a great accessory. Long used in restaurants  for displaying food, wines or collectibles they also were partial screens to block certain lines of sight while at the same time revving up appetites. In home kitchens — particularly on an island — bistro shelves may be focal points if not conversation pieces. The glass shelving is transparent, so what goes on the shelves is showcased by the…
  • Colorful Mudrooms

    Jane F
    28 Jun 2015 | 9:03 am
    Colorful mudrooms — even when the color is neutral — offer a hint of personality in the entryway of a house. For a long time most mudrooms I saw were white, just like kitchens. As places to house boots, hats, umbrellas, jackets, dog leashes and assorted other outdoor gear the use of white made them a bit fussy for me. In addition to color, a mudroom (or boot room) by definition serves a function. In a way it’s a glorified closet but a public one. Elaborate woodwork is not always required. Even a small space can benefit from a shelf rack with pegs and a storage bench like the ones…

    I recently had the pleasure of trying out the custom framing process at Aaron Brothers. I’ve had art framed before and by framed I mean I’ve gone to a store and bought a frame or where I purchased the art online framed the print for me. What I haven’t done is actually gone in, worked with a rep and hand selected frame options for a piece. Side note, how cool are all the white frames on the wall? Would love to do something like that in a room in my house-perfect accent wall/art. I started off with a rug that was shipped in from overseas, a really unique and interesting piece…

    This week, I’m giving April some tips on creating a stylish and neat craft room and home office. April asks: “I am working on transforming my home office/craft room into a more organized and pretty workspace. I’d love to get some advice!” Craft rooms can be so fun (and there’s definitely a bunch of drool-worthy ones on Pinterest), but it can get overwhelming trying to  keep items that are messy by nature organized, especially when they’re sharing a space with your office stuff. The key to having an organized room (that stays organized) is to implement a system…

Since I have the master bedroom in our apartment, I’m able to fit my entire office inside of it, which is really convenient. Although, sometimes difficult to know when to shut off “work brain” and relax at night! I knew I wanted my office space to blend in well with the rest of my bedroom decor, so the color palette was picked based on my bedding and wall decor. It inspires me to be creative, which is the most important part of my…

    When designing a room and arranging the furniture, there are some stand by rules that apply. Although sometimes the most interesting rooms are the ones that refuse to be confined. I like to start with these 5 principles and then work from there. 1. Define A Focal PointIn this room the primary focal point is the fireplace. The furniture is placed parallel to this wall. Floating away from the window wall and the 2 klismos chairs floating across from the sofa. 2. Remember the Traffic FlowEven in a small room the furniture most not block your everyday walk through of the room.

In addition, indoor plants can even decrease stress while boosting mood, memory, concentration. A win, win, win right?

I can't get enough of this look and - left to my own devices - would dress the part all day every day. CHANNEL YOUR INNER LUXE BOHO BABELove that bronzed glow but trying to save your precious skin from the ravages of the sun?

  • Old Warehouse Turned Into A Loft With Interior Court And Glass Roof

    Simona Ganea
    31 Jul 2015 | 12:21 am
    The 3,000 square feet on the top floor and roof of an old caviar warehouse in New York have been recently converted into a very chic and very interesting home for its new owners. The building was originally built in 1884 and, although it had its charm, was in need of a major transformation if it was to serve as a living space. The project was conducted by Andrew Franz, a company founded in 2003 that believes “design should inspire, incite, complement and celebrate our lives” an idea that was beautifully translated into a design that truly stands out.Their philosophy to find simple and…

    The beautiful art of origami has inspired many designers and architects. Their multifaceted creations definitely reflect that and are easy to spot. But the resemblance to this art is not the only element that makes these projects interesting, although it is what first made us curious about them.The passenger terminal at the Wellington International Airport was designed by Warren & Mahoney in association with Studio Pacific Architecture. Its architecture and interior design were inspired by the environment and the angular forms that look like origami link the terminal to the rocks around…

    Andrew Dunning
    8 Jul 2015 | 11:44 pm
    Today we are featuring a project we completed in Islington recently to replace the current kitchen and extend the property with a rear glass box extension. From a short ‘we have a baby coming in 6 months and are looking to renovate our kitchen’ email received late one December evening the project grew to include a full refurbishment of the lower ground floor of the Islington terrace. The original layout on the lower ground floor had three small rooms and felt very closed in and dark (see before pictures at the end of this post). An internal hallway used too much space on an…

We have already completed projects in Highgate and Whitstable and have been very pleased with both the service in the showrooms and their after sales services. To see more of their products CP Hart invited me to stay in a hotel where they had recently designed all the bathrooms.

    Finlayson is a Finnish textile company you might know for the cute Moomin towels they produce and the large graphic patterns in their range, the Aalto pattern has been produced for nearly 40 years. The company is named after James Finlayson, a Scottish machine engineer who went to Tampere in Finland in 1820 and founded a cotton mill. Although he sold the mill after 16 years the company wanted to retain his name. In the early days Finlayson & Compagnie was founded on the same principles as Bourneville did in England and provided homes for workers, and the company looked after the workers…

One of Oprah’s besties, Tyler Perry is super influential and seems to have the box office wrapped around his finger. A fixture on the Atlanta circuit of power players and “who’s who” of the celebrity elite, his massively extravagant home is almost as well-known as his hilarious alter-ego Madea. Built in the same style as a classic French chateau, the home is right along the river and is palatial to say the…

    Studio M I’ve always been a fan of the historic baroque and rococo decorative styles. Not only are these styles over the top extravagant, but the amount of detail that was embraced during the height of its popularity is absolutely impressive. Packed with color and pattern, these classic styles go hand in hand with the lifestyles of monarchies and affluent families of centuries past. After visiting Versailles during my stop in Paris last week, I got to really see the differences between baroque and rococo firsthand compared to what I’d seen in some of the summer palaces throughout southern…

Maybe it’s because I feel like my thoughts have more room to breathe when they aren’t cramped physically. It may sound weird that thoughts could feel cramped up when it’s all really in your head anyways but something good happens when there is more space to enjoy than not when looking for inspiration. This modern home is designed to embrace its environment by blending into it with glass walls and wooden structured borders and…

It’s convenient, the employees are incredibly friendly, the atmosphere is laid back, and best of all—they serve anything my heart could desire. In the morning I get coffee; In the evening I get wine. If I get hungry they have anything from locally made pastries or fresh quiche in the morning to house-made chili and tacos in the evening. I think what makes them really successful though, is that these guys picked up what the neighborhood was putting…

    New York Hotel owners are in a precarious position because although they want to make their hotels nicer and more unique, redesigning the hotel structure is nearly impossible. They are forced to work with what exists already. This is not always an easy task, though, and it’s often hard to achieve the look and feel that the hotel owners’ desire. The only choice in many situations is to make changes to the existing rooms and common areas that will break from long standing hotel traditions and take the hotel in a stylish new direction.

    I love strawberries in the summer, so when I saw these strawberry plants I knew I had to buy some home with me… As I told you earlier, my plan is to have lots of herbs and vegetables on our little balcony outside the kitchen… , so why now some fruit too :) // I found the Strawberries at my local Mester Grønn. The plant hanger is from Ferm Living, and is available at Stylizimo Shop. //   Images: Nina Holst

  • This Modern Office Space is as Stylish and Livable as Any Urban Loft

    HD Staff
    31 Jul 2015 | 7:00 am
    When you think of an office space, you might have visions of a cubicle farm with no windows and even less personality. That might be an accurate picture for someone working a customer service line, those lucky enough to have more creative jobs also tend to get more creative with their offices. In fact, this office in the Ukraine, home of construction, repair, and furniture design company DIZAAP, has all the trappings of the warm industrial lofts that we’re so fond of on this site. Apart from the excess desk space and a few office chairs, it would be hard to know that this space even is…

    HD Staff
    30 Jul 2015 | 9:01 am
    The first space is built around the central living area, with private spaces spiraling off of that main room. Tall ceilings make for an open atmosphere and light fixtures are kept close to the ceiling in a way that ensures the space does not become too closed off. The bedroom and guest room are both visible from the main living area through interior windows, with curtains that can easily be closed when privacy is required. The color palette is largely neutral with a few brighter pops of yellow for a youthful glow. The second home is a 70 square meter (753 square feet) studio who had limited…

    Before the days of Houzz and Pinterest, prospective clients would buy tons of Home Décor magazines and rip out pictures of their favorite rooms and put them in an idea file. This was helpful in allowing me to see what the client liked and get a general direction for the project. Even if the client didn’t know exactly what they liked about a room, I could detect patterns in their selections and discern design elements that they were attracted to. While some people still like to browse through glossy magazine pages, most of my clients these days have electronic scrap books dedicated to…

    As a designer I’ve been very happy with the improvements in touch-latch hardware.

Touch latch hardware comes in two versions – Magnetic and Mechanical. The more common Magnetic Touch Latch employs a magnet at the end of a spring-loaded plunger. When the door is closed, the plunger is pushed inside its casing, compressing the spring behind it. A small catch holds the plunger in place and…

These fixtures are usually found in places of worship, and have inspired more modern works in terms of photographic triptych pieces and sculptures.

    Entryways to our homes create one of two immediate feelings: welcoming and peaceful, or cluttered and chaotic.One of the biggest problems I see a lot of clients and friends struggling with is a small entryway with little room to organize and store stuff. The family ends up tripping over shoes and jackets and getting irritated every time they enter. That's not the way our homes should greet us!So for small entryways, I've designated 5 essentials that will get you out of Crazytown and into Happyland.1. A small table or shelf.  A surface area to throw down your phone, keys, mail, and…

  • Lime in the Coconut

    How amazing is the Coconut Chair? A refreshingly accurate reproduction, this piece is available as an in stock option (classic white shell and black leather upholstery) so you don’t have to wait for this to ripen – or you could harvest your own and order with custom fabric options. My personal favorite is the light green Polyester woven, which is now offered on most of our special order products. It is almost a lime green, but not quite as demanding as you would imagine it to be. The fabric is super soft and makes this chair even more comfortable that it already is. I think it would look…

    Remember how much admiration you had for that old, beautiful umbrella tree in your neighborhood? I know I do. We used to love sitting beneath the shade of the ancient oak tree to cool us off in the heat of the summer. I used love to admire the unique patterns of the bark and would just be in awe of the beauty of this magnificent piece of earth, so old yet remarkable. Bring back the nostalgia of yesteryear with a piece of hand crafted Suarina Wood (shown in table above).

    Inspiration via The Interior Project There is nothing more refreshing than an all white room. Sure, one might assume that it may gather dust and marks easier than any other color. While this might be true in some cases, it all depends on the fabrics, textiles and materials you’re working with. While white does require more maintenance and attention than other shades, you cannot dispute that it might just be worth taking the extra work on! All white is invigorating, modern and chic. And no worries, it’s not just a summer trend, this breezy look can be swapped out for heavier textiles,…

    In the Chicago suburbs in 1946, a young Norman Wecker returned to his native hometown with a great plan on the horizon. Or Skyline- as in Skyline Furniture. Norman was no stranger to the business- his father in law owned and operated an upholstery factory for years. So, expanding the family business only seemed natural. Founded with excellent craftsmanship, a strong appreciation for design, and good old fashioned family values, Skyline Furniture quickly became successful. The best part of this story is that Skyline  is still owned and operated under the same ideals it was born out of. Nearly…

I have loved this style of light for almost 10 years now.

  • 5 Tasteful Ways to Decorating with Tie-Dye

    Author
    31 Jul 2015 | 1:03 am
    Tie-dye cloth has always been associated with the hippy era. But it has recently been making a comeback. What makes today’s tie-dye different from that of the 70’s is that it’s not the usual multi-color t-shirts that date back a few decades ago. Nowadays, tie-dyeing uses an ancient Japanese technique called shibori. Usually, you’ll see it in indigo color set against a white background.

That makes this showroom a must-visit and I did not come away disappointed this time. While taking note of looks and trends, I also noticed a little theme that kept showing up over and over again, possibly inspired by a certain hit movie about an island populated by dinosaurs.

    As we begin to contemplate the furnishings on our latest project, I am drawn back to the pieces that Thom Filicia has designed for Vanguard Furniture. Here's a photo I snapped of his latest collection in High Point. I just love the balance between modern and traditional his pieces strike as well as the unexpected color palettes he uses. Plus, who couldn't fall in love with the buckskin suede that pops up in his scenarios. Pretty wonderful Thom! xo

It was a time where things like space travel and new technologies were making history, and they paved the way for highly imaginative visions, for the future and what they’d expect. No one knew what was in store for the future, but they had a few ideas.  Circles & Curves Parting ways from the tightly structured and detail oriented style of furniture from the 30s & 40s, retrofuturism heavily relies on curved & sleek designs, as well as…

    As much as I have LOVED possessing a Los Angeles zip code, I do profess to a dirty dark secret: Having previously lived, loved and experienced much success in the Big Apple in my 20s, I moved to the West Coast with pre-conceived ideas of what I was getting into. When I first arrived on the left coast I was so busy arrogantly comparing LA life to New York that I honestly hated it.

  • Do You Make These Decorating Mistakes?

    27 Jul 2015 | 1:34 pm
    Or… Top 10 Ways to Fail at Decorating Your Home Number 1:   Choose your paint color first. Ask your decorator, ask ANY decorator. Ask me. Why shouldn’t I pick a paint color first? I need to paint the room first! No. You do not. You need to choose your major pieces of furniture first. (See #3 before you do this) The colors of your furniture, fabrics, and art will make it much easier to choose a paint color for your room. And your colors don’t have to match exactly, they do have to “go” together. Number 2:   Choose your paint color at the paint store. Really?
