Concrete & Large Windows…

Rule!

What’s grand with this room is simple, and whats simple with this room  is made grand. Before I start sounding like The Sphinx in “Mystery Men'” may I say though that this place featured, does not have much ado with ornate furniture or accents because the enormity of this structure is all it needs.

This kitchen is really enviable!

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.

White Overkill?

June 8, 2011

White Overkill? oh please blame me not for it; I just cannot figure our why I can’t get through white in terms of color (or lack thereof) in this stage I have for interior design. Of course it did not help that I just discovered Emma’s Design; a Scandinavian design blog which makes use of white like cake does with flour. 

Yes, this picture might as well be some sort of an art piece for white, modern interior design but what fun it would be just putting it all together, be it functional or not.

Take a reverie with me if you will, to an idyllic afternoon with nothing in your mind. But just before you hit this boudoir, imagine a Saturday afternoon just right after having your perfect weekend lunch and your most preferred dessert. Then you are invited to help yourself with a nap in this vision of linen and lull; you are to relax and for a few hours – drift away to dreamland where there are no chores, no obligations and no worries. Stripped off of life’s complications and into this cool and comfortable minimalist’s boudoir. 

The Swedish

March 17, 2011

The Swedish dwellings have the tallest ceilings, whitest walls, widest rooms, the best interior layouts, the most character in interiors, unique-est fireplaces, most functional yet artistic furniture; the simplest yet fulfilling designs, airiest spaces, the biggest windows, AND… the greatest of houses in the world!! Can someone tell me how is this fair?

Mi Casa, Mi Casa!

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?
