Best Place To Look

June 17, 2011

 

If I lived in this apartment, would it even matter if I had the money or the desire to go out? maybe not! I will have the view and the interior made of my dreams here. The picture is of a place in Sweden, plucked out from the blogsite Nordic Design and I have fallen in love again; to an inanimate object albeit.

What is in here that swept me away? Serenity, spaciousness, wood, white, killer design, utilitarianism and like… a piece of heaven here on earth.

Mi Casa, Mi Casa!

March 5, 2011

Mi Casa! Mi Casa!

Pero, solo en mi sueños 😦

When I saw this photo of a concrete house nestled in the forest that was airy, open and modern; I thought this is what I want to live in for the rest of my life. Not such a large square-footage where my soon-to-be arthritic hands will not be able to clean all the nooks and corners, but with high ceilings to preclude claustrophobia, wood floors for easier cleaning and a capable kitchen. But wait, I need to see the bed and bath before I sign up. ;-).

A perfect vision of my dream bedroom! White, airy, spacious, beams, serene, minimal, king-sized bed, nature’s view, windows all around, simple accents, modern yet rustic. Please, oh please? may I?

Orbs

December 22, 2010

It would be a waste of orbs if this picture will not be featured whist in the month of December here at Ce Lieu. The way the orbs are irregularly placed in this hallway and how the web appearance of the orbs’ design reflects from inside then all over the walls gives a very modern, artistic look and is cool in my book.

Loving whites, minimalist design, concrete and streamlined features in a home, this photo has made me admire how the designers and architects played with this space. With these orbs hanging all year-round, if this were my abode, it would be Christmas everyday!

Winter Wonder House

December 4, 2010

Winter is upon the Northern Hemisphere. This scene is a thing of fascination and warm crispiness perhaps because I am only looking at it. However, I do love the look of the white branches as though filled with cotton.

This fusion modern and rustic structure has convinced me that if I lived in this house, the groundhog can see his shadow every February 2, if it wants. The stone walls and the tile roofing gives the house character and the glass conservatory extension is modernity in motion, and coupled with the postcard-picture winter backdrop. The whole ensemble truly turned cold to cool.

Sterile

November 27, 2010

I understand that some people will be appalled with this sterility. But as for me, if I woke up to this vision coming down from my bedroom, on to the kitchen to prep my work lunch and coffee to go; everyday would be a therapeutic day.

I love the asymmetry and the unpredictability of the house’s structure because it contrasts the white all around which many people take as boring. The minimalist attributes ties the whole ensemble and would everyday remind me to de-clutter, mentally and environmentally. Yes, if it were mine, I might put an accent piece or 2, but I dare say – this is like living somewhere where everyday – there is a sense of serenity and renewal, even if outside the door stands the guaranteed immediate chaos of the day.
