Inspiring from the elegant interior apartment in New York

New York city is one of the most attractive place in the world. New York attracts us not only by the luxury of city but also the beauty of city architecture.
All the agitation, the background noise, the excitement of living in Big Apple should be doubled by a quiet, comfortable place to come home to. This Central Park Home hovering above the city’s skyline could be the answer. A distinct contemporary elegance is what defines this New York residential space.

The apartment offers its inhabitants a relaxed lifestyle, surrounded by soft, warm colors, extensive use of wood and always linking the interiors to the city through large windows in every room. The children’s room features insertions of a bold green, but the rest of the spaces display a relaxing color palette. Shawn Henderson Interior Design is behind this beautiful project, helping the owners construct the perfect dream home. Designed to correspond to the client’s needs and wishes, the apartment relates to the city through large floor-to-ceiling windows that bring the external dynamism inside and allows natural light to flood the interiors.

The clever design ideas for a home in the middle of forest trees

 This house is the work of Kim Alexander builder in collaboration with Baahouse+ Baastudio. This house is clever ideas when it is renovated from the exist ones.
“Granny flats, or secondary dwellings are making a comeback in the Australian backyard due to their affordability and practicality. If you live on a block of land larger than 405 square meters and need extra living space, building a second dwelling may be your solution”, explain the architects.

This particular project is located in The Gap, a leafy and hilly suburb of Brisbane in Queensland, Australia. It is a modern version of a tree-house, and it appears to float in its privileged natural environment. The smart layout opens up all of the rooms to the freshness of the forest while ensuring an optimum connection between the interiors. Both living area and bedroom extend outdoors through lovely balconies partially covered by cantilevered roofs. Enjoy the virtual tour of this unconventional granny loft and let us know what you think!

Modern recording studio dressed in bricks

In the geometric architectural language, this modern recording studio unveils simplicity and an inspiring play of opaque and semi-transparency.
The design of this studio makes impresses with an unusual facade free from windows. Besides, imposing a modern touch in the densely populated residential area on the inner side of Dosan-daero (in Gangnam-gu, Seoul, South Korea), this sleek brick structure sheltering the Nonhyun Limelight Music Consulting recording studio was imagined by Dia Architecture as an eye-catching building covered in red bricks.
A geometric architecture following the slopes of the stairs makes room for skylights at every level. Inside, the recording studio occupies the second and third floor, where the windowless outer wall served as support for an open space. Spreading over a total of 589 square meters, the recording studio dressed in surface-cut used bricks was photographed by Kyungsub Shin as to reflect the building’s integration in the surrounding multiplex housing.
An office space on the fourth and fifth level was designed to resemble a luminous transparent box. This helps relive the weight of the structure and visually contributes to the overall contemporary appearance. Supported by a V-shape steel column in the ground floor car parking area, the building was imagined as a breath of fresh design disguised as a brick building.

How to Plan For a Room By Room Revamp of Your Home

If you’re planning to revamp your home, you’ll need to think about the process involved. It’s not as easy as just diving headfirst into a project. You need to think about the size and space you have and also consider your finances. You’ll probably be looking to modernize your home with a new and trendy design.

Whatever you choose you will need to follow these steps, so the process is as stress-free and easy as possible.

Plan & Design

The first step you need to take is to plan and design the work that you’re going to do inside the home. This will involve drawing up plans and blueprints. You may want to consult an expert to find out whether the work is possible for the specific rooms in question. You need to come up with the design you want for that particular room. Also, what will be put into the room and how much it’ll cost. Don’t forget to factor cost in. A lot of people overlook this and, as a result, end up going over budget. Or worse they get midway through a project and realise it can’t be done. This is a waste of everyone’s time and money. So make sure this doesn’t happen to you. Plan and design as best you can before starting any work.

Clear Room

The next step will be to clear everything out of the room. You want to be starting from scratch. So you approach each room as though you’d just moved in, and it was empty. So first things first, you need to clear all the stuff out of the room that is currently in there. Now this is a good excuse to have a much-needed clear out of your home. Take the opportunity to get rid of anything that you don’t need or want anymore. To be honest, there’s a good bet that you’ll replace all it anyway so you need to be ruthless.


Once you’ve cleared everything out of the room, the next step is going to be to repaint. You will have decided on a color scheme when you planned the revamp. Make sure that you don’t get cold feet and change your mind halfway through. You need to be decisive in this kind of situation. Make sure you stock up on paint. You may have decided you want to have a different color scheme for each room in which case you’ll need to make provisions for this. You will be surprised at the kind of effect a fresh coat of paint has on a room. It can brighten, revitalise and rejuvenate a tired looking room into something remarkable.

Get New Furniture

Once you’ve done the repaint, and it's all dry, the next phase is to put furniture in the room. Now it’s likely that you’re going to want to replace all the pre-existing furniture with new furniture. You may even think about making some bits of furniture yourself out of oak timber. This is a quirky and cheap alternative to buying new. But whichever choice you make you will want to replace the old stuff with new pieces that fit the color scheme and design.

Add Features

After you’ve put the furniture in and performed the necessary Feng Shui, it’s time to think about adding features. Now these may be anything from vases to ornaments, to paintings hanging on the wall. They will no doubt compliment the design of the room. It will also be an opportunity for you to inject some of your personality into the room.

Decorating your home by nature material

If you’ve ever desired to be in a country home where you could have a direct contact with nature, you should take a look at Lilla Torpet. This home was re-designed by owner and  head of Ikea in Spain, Lorenzo Meazza.

During a short stay in Sweden, he became fond of the Swedish culture, traditions, and the cool natural environment of the Nordic forest. Even though he worked in the city, he constantly sought for a pristine, remote place where he could easily relax and connect with nature. He finally found Lilla Torpet – which means cottage – a rear gem hidden in a lush Swedish forest.
Amazingly, this remodeled home was originally constructed in the latter part of the eighteenth century. Several generations of farmers have lived in this home, with little modification. But Meazza was the one who added electricity, water and a modern bathroom. He renovated the house using a combination of three inspiring colors: beige, snow white and a unique teal tone. These colors are commonly used to paint furniture in this area. They transmit vibrant energy. He also placed a mirror in a strategic position that reflects the forest.
