What should we do if the space to renovate is long and narrow? Decorating such spaces can be a bit puzzling but it's possible to create a fantastic look with style. This bathroom is a good example of such renovating, just look how fresh, luminous and modern it is!
Black-on-black kitchens look gorgeous as well! This one uses different textures for contrast and depth. Nearby, a green rug and a wild vertical garden bring color to this dark and sophisticated style. Wood isn't limited to classic style kitchens. Here, muted tones contribute a natural aesthetic without breaking away from the greyscale color theme used throughout.
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.
The are rug and wall pattern in this kitchen give its sleek design just enough texture to warm it up. This similar design features open shelving and lots of natural light. A chevron stripe pattern in the hardwood and vaulted ceilings turn this simple kitchen into something quite luxurious. This kitchen makes it clear that you don't need a ton of space to create something stylish and welcoming.
This calm kitchen design with understated features gets a quick zing of color, with a run of green kitchen units beneath a long central island. Inspiration has been taken from the hues within an antique run in this kitchen diner space, leading to an unusual choice of orange larder units and TV console cabinets. The zesty cupboards work perfectly against the muted blue backdrop and crisp white fronts of the smaller units.
Copper wall paneling gives this kitchen a bit of a design edge. Yellow Eames-inspired chairs are the ultimate pop of color in this otherwise neutral design. Stainless steel fixtures are all the shine this kitchen needs for its luxurious aura. Black and wood as used here are entirely minimalist, with every kitchen item hidden carefully away in recessed cabinets.
Industrial is the word to describe this living space, backgrounded by black. A large winding ventilator fan and SMEG fridge block give white, while the majority converts to black. A simplistic look makes a black kitchen a winner. Clean black panels pop out beside a wooden knife holder and potted plant.
Don't be afraid to get creative; consider side tables or end tables as options. A Moroccan pouf or cube ottoman with a tray on top also are alternatives to traditional nightstands. Finally, keep in mind your mattress height; you'll want to make sure your table isn't too high or low.
The star of your bedroom may be the bed, but don't count out nightstands as an essential part of the room. A bedroom without a bedside table means that things like your clock, smartphone, books and lamps are without a home.
When it comes to sleep, comfort is not a luxury, it's a necessity. For many, finding the right mattress can be the difference between waking up well-rested and “stay out of my way, there literally isn't enough coffee in the world.”
