There's nothing quite as liberating as taking a shower in the great outdoors, but if your location or typical weather forecast doesn't allow this luxury, then how about one of these dual aspect windows that look both out and up, forming a cutaway of your room for an outdoor effect. This master suite really has it all: a serene sleep area, a walk-in closet, and a truly enormous shower taking center stage. Another great application of LEDs make this shower room stand out, but lets hope the inhabitants of the next skyscraper over don't own binoculars.
Good modern design is to be found in a clear concept, a corresponding and consistent theme, precise execution and a commitment to an interior philosophy, and while this will inevitably produce an impressive and credible space it may not satisfy the inhabitant in every way. Few professional interior designers endorse different styles in every room of the house, but the opportunity to experiment with individuality comes with spaces private in nature.
The molding on the walls in this design marries the classic with the contemporary. This new kitchen is given a rustic feel with whitewashed wood and mismatched floor panels. This design uses an uneven ceiling to its advantage, creating interest with handing light fixtures and angular skylights. Look no further than this kitchen for some inspired overhead lighting ideas.
Since attics are at the top of the home, the option for natural light should be priority. While many homes don't have skylights, other options such as dormer windows which are located in the walls of the attic, as opposed to the ceiling, and even solar tubes can be installed to bring light into the master bedroom attic space. Along with natural light, views to the outside should be considered, as humans thrive on seeing daylight and fresh scenery daily. Take full advantage of the height and the views, you are at the top of the world, literally!
Industrial influences define this sleek space. The chairs and stools are from the Steelwood collection by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec – named after the strikingly unusual combination of materials used in their design. It would be hard to go wrong with such a nice view through expansive corner windows like those. Uncomplicated decor preserves the emphasis on the garden outside, and a nice blue rug enhances the connection with the sky.
The first kitchen uses cool beige tones and recessed lighting to create a sense of calm. This kitchen really brightens things up with open cabinets of sunny yellow for a distinctly modern vibe. The reddish orange accents in this kitchen, and the creative sunken dining table, give the kitchen a really retro feel. Another neutral option lets the practical elements of the kitchen itself all but disappear, highlighting beautiful views and open windows.
If you have a small closet, you know that keeping it organized and attractive can be a challenge. Despite their importance, closets are rarely well designed. They often are tiny, making it hard to access all the nooks and crannies, and lack good lighting.
First built as a functional furniture item, the canopy bed became the canvas for inspiring carvings and design interpretations in different upscale residences. From four poster beds with curtains that kept warmth in and noise out to ornate canopy beds of the wealthy, this fairly simple bed design has seen a revival in contemporary interior design. Furthermore, the canopy bed is certainly no longer a luxury item for the wealthy, you can actually find some stylish and affordable canopy beds here on walmart.com (we were surprised with quality of their selection!).
In the spirit of highly individual design, the 'Be Yourself' contest, brainchild of industry leaders, challenged visualizers to create the ultimate bathroom. This concept by Deluxe Home Creation Studio was the viewer's favorite and it's not difficult to see why. However, starting with images of grandeur is not such a bad idea. Even for a personal/residential project it is possible to gain inspiration from images such as these and scale them down to fit comfortably within standard spaces, keeping elements such as a simple water feature or simulated rain shower as part of the fundamental ideal.
This ultra modern living room uses its clean lines to create an overwhelming atmosphere that is clean and serene. The round columns in this living room divide the room and give an otherwise industrial apartment a bit of a romantic spin. In this smaller living room, the white color scheme makes things feel more open.
