Interior Design Ideas Inspirational Interior Design Ideas Tue, 24 Apr 2018 20:12:56 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Interior Design Ideas 32 32 Interior Design Using Marble And Wood Combinations Tue, 24 Apr 2018 15:02:27 +0000 There is something very luxurious about the grand combination of misty veined marble and rich wood grain. The teaming of natural materials brings life to a modern apartment interior and can be incorporated in a myriad of ways. Floors, bathroom tiles and kitchen backsplashes have long been clad in marvellous marble finishes, but how can we apply other areas of organic patterning to add interest and movement to hard contemporary surroundings? Wood tone is ideal for furniture, floors and panelling but how can we freshen our use of the material? These two apartments show how to create soft neutral backdrops of marble and wood that won’t leave a sophisticated decor scheme falling flat.

Beyond shining globe pendant lights, a slatted wood wall adds dimension over an entertainment wall in our first featured home. A flat screen television is mounted partially over the wooden slats, with its lower half hanging over a white, grey and golden tone marble panel. A strip of white LED lighting runs through the cross section.

Two round glossy white coffee tables with black frames complement the white marble backsplash and black kitchen wall cabinets behind the lounge.

Wood slat walls catch the light in a more interesting way than a flat wall panel could, creating areas of light and shade. Placing flat wood panels adjacent to a slatted feature provides an attractive change in texture.

The dining pendant lights provide a little colour within the white marble and wood decor scheme, though are still in-keeping with an earthy palette.

A slender white floor lamp stands by the bedside on a light wood bedroom floor. A matching bedside table lamp sits on the opposite side, on top of a dark wood bedside unit. Behind the wooden drawer unit, a tall smoked glass bedroom mirror echoes the height of an adjacent glass closet.

The glass closet is a walk-in design, where the wood flooring from the bedroom continues seamlessly.

The contents of the wardrobe are on view to the bedroom, making the space look like a trendy clothing boutique. At the foot of the bed a bespoke wooden volume has been crafted to hold a contemporary feature fireplace, and to divide the room into two separate zones. The hearth of the fireplace spans the volume in a stripe of white marble. The combination of wood and marble makes the new installation appear established and permanent. Behind the dividing wall stands a home office area. The side of the dividing wall has been fitted with bookshelves, which are easily accessible from both the desk side and the bedroom.

The sleek wood and metal desk is equipped with a small designer table lamp.

In the bathroom, a modern bathroom vanity, freestanding bathtub, toilet and bidet are of a beige colourway that brings out the colours in the surrounding marble that clads the walls and floor.

Black metal framing and black faucets give the marble cladding a contemporary edge.

Our second apartment is a summer home located in a luxury resort area, situated by the Finnish bay just outside of Saint-Petersburg.

The TV wall decor is a combination of marble and wood panelling. The golden patterning in the marble works in perfect harmony with the blonde tone of the wood. A plain white console unit is wall mounted beneath the television, with a darker wooden shelf top.

A beige modern sofa sits on top of a textured area rug that complements the texture and colours of the marble feature wall.

A wooden herringbone floor in the lounge runs into a marble floor towards the kitchen diner and hallway.

Sophisticated marble floor tiles are showcased in this soft beige minimalistic kitchen. A slatted wooden wall makes a partial divide between the lounge and the living room, and provides an effective visual stop. The wooden legs of the kitchen bar stools tie in with the look of the slender light slats.

White glass orbs in the unique kitchen pendant lights match the sheen of white marble.

In the hallway, sliding closet doors are constructed to match the marble and wood decor. Home storage systems and decorative marble constructions in this home were custom made according to the architects’ drawings.

Decorative vases nestle within the recessed shelving of a white concrete wall.

Two gold modern wall sconces light one half of the headboard wall. Four backlit marble panels illuminate the other side.

Ridges run down the marble wall panels to create an interesting modern look. The glossy surface of the marble feature wall reflects the glow of a gold bedroom pendant light.

A marble dressing table appears to extrude from another wall panel. A tan leather and copper vanity stool picks out colours from the decorative feature.

Herringbone wood flooring and a wood tone dresser complete the bedroom.

Heavily streaked marble appears like a work of art over the walls and floor of the bathroom. Its deeper colours are brought out by black bathroom fixtures and fittings. A black and white unique faucet and sink combo stands at each of the floor to ceiling bathroom mirrors.

A bespoke wooden ceiling panel draws the eye up and over.

Soft LED lighting adds to the high-end look of the luxury bathroom scheme.

The mirror lights brightly gleam over the glossy marble floor.

By the entry door, a storage console has lighting underneath and appears floating over marble tile. Wood slats flank either side of a hallway mirror, giving the tiny zone its own special identity.

Stylish Streamlined One Room Living Mon, 23 Apr 2018 14:15:05 +0000 A home doesn’t need to be of sprawling square footage to hold a gorgeous and comfortably functional interior, the best ideas can come in very small packages. Take this couple of one room living spaces as great examples. These two compact studio apartments each incorporate bold features with a stand out sense of style. The furnishings have been cleverly streamlined and cleanly zoned to tick all of the boxes for a modern life of working from home, rest and relaxation, and even socialising. Inventive area planning, bespoke furniture design and considered colour schemes add up to make two cool compact living environments where perceived limitations of space dissolve away.

Designer: aTng 糖 & Dunqiang Chen  

Our first one room living space has a smooth grey colour palette that evokes a relaxing atmosphere. Seating solutions span one entire wall of the living area. Of two matching bespoke bench seats, the first acts as banquette seating at a dining table, and the second as a slimline sofa situated in optical alignment with the television screen. A bed is located on a raised platform – an anchored installation that runs into the seating base structure.

A single trundle bed can be drawn out from beneath the double platform bed to provide sleeping quarters for a child; this kind of trundle design would also come in handy as a guest sleeper. A section from the steps leading to the double bed slide away to form the headboard of the single sleeper. The stepped headboard provides a small shelf that can be used as a bedside unit.

A swing arm wall lamp is positioned between the two bench seats to provide extra illumination when and where needed. All of the wall art on display is monochrome so that the small space does not become overwhelmed with clashing colours and styles.

On the opposite side to the dining banquette seating stands two modern dining chairs.

A humorous art print is propped casually against the wall. It adds to the spot hints of green placed around the grey and wood tone decor scheme.

When the second bed is not in situ, a set of unique coffee tables are moved into the centre of the lounge area and a cosy bean bag chair is pulled around to make a sociable seating space.

Below the TV, a wall mounted wood and concrete console unit incorporates a planter. Cacti inhabit the unit, along with a Rosendahl Kay Bojesen monkey.

Matching the finish of the console unit are a set of wood and concrete pendants, you can get these here.

Behind the dining table, a peg board provides wall hooks and handy shelving that can be quickly rearranged on a whim.

By the entry door, a narrow bench and a set of wall hooks provide simple organisation.

A small kitchen is recessed into a wall volume that flanks the length of the double bed.

A fridge-freezer, three cupboards and a washing machine complete the run of base units. Open kitchen shelving occupies the wall space next to a stainless steel extractor.

Designer: Cartelle Design  

The second studio apartment is a 40.57 square metre home in Moscow.

This interior was designed for a young female homeowner who spends most of her downtime reading and relaxing. The homeowners love of reading is reflected in the book storage incorporated into the base of bespoke window seating.

The eating area of this small home is large enough to formally seat a party of four. A stylishly mismatched dining table chair combination makes the set appear less intrusive on the space. A linear suspension light visually anchors the rectangular dining table in position.

The dining area is dressed with a selection of art prints, stood at floor level.

The sleeping area is situated directly opposite the dining table, clearly zoned by use of bright colour.

4 poster beds aren’t an obvious choice for an ultra compact living space, but this sunny yellow design appears like a room within a room. The bed box base sits upon a yellow platform that has LED lighting around its perimeter, as if it were a floating island.

The bedroom-within-a-room also has its own pendant light, wall art and even its own window.

A tray table nestles to the side of the bedroom platform, complementing the wood and black framed finish of the neighbouring dining table.

A painted brick wall gives the quirky interior an industrial edge.

Hanging chairs work well in compact spaces.

Despite the tiny proportions of this home, there is a dedicated home office area.

A built in desk has been located in a nook between the combined lounge/diner/bedroom and the bathroom.

The desk chair design matches the dining chairs, providing the option of fluidly moving the seats around the apartment as needed whilst being in-keeping with the design of each zone.

Thanks to the window situated in the headboard wall, the modern home office benefits from borrowed natural light.

Recessed shelves provide neat storage by the work area.

The bathroom holds a black toilet and matching vanity unit.

Past the black and white facilities, pink tiling in the shower enclosure injects some colour into the bathroom.

A black heated towel rail at the end of the shower enclosure and black floor tiling tie the two areas together.

A closet is fitted opposite the home office.

That’s why we’ve put together this collection of 40 awesome ideas for a kid’s decor scheme to inspire you. These might also help you to find some middle ground between the weird and wonderful ideas the youngsters may have, and the stylish finished item that you’d actually want as part of your home! This selection of inspirational kids bedrooms use beautiful pastel color palettes in fun combinations, along with sweet decor accents and accessories, unusual beds and bunk beds, kids desks and desk chairs, plus colourful kids storage solutions.

A cloud theme forms the basis of this pink bedroom. A fluffy cloud outline is the subject of the wall mural, created in two shades of pink. Two decorative rain clouds create interest on a bare pink wall above a colour coordinated storage bench.

Visualizer: Phuong Nguyen  

A cutaway moon and stars light up the ceiling, whilst glass globe pendant lights illuminate the bedside in this pink and wood tone room. An inspirational quote makes a bold statement across the headboard wall.

Even a small bedroom can hold quirky decor ideas. This triangular paint feature creates a cosy corner, almost like a canopy over the bed. The feature is helped along by the corner placement of a pink pendant light.

Sweet shades of pink gain a modern edge when accompanied by monochrome accents and prints. Here, candy pink bedroom furniture is set against a black and white polka-dot wall, accessorised with a monochrome typographical print and a black wirework bedroom pendant light.

A wall mounted kids’ night light is plugged in by this bed. Monochrome and pastel coloured bunting decorate the upper portion of the headboard wall, whilst a tree mural adorns the adjacent space.

House shaped bed frames come as double sized 4 poster beds too.

Traditional four poster beds still look super pretty though, like this one decorated with dreamy sheer curtains beneath a fluffy feather pendant shade.

Visualizer: Mateusz Minkina  

It’s a nice idea to have a few kid’s chairs in a bedroom – even if the space is not shared. Extra seats can be used to encourage siblings in to play, provide seating for play dates, or even just to seat the dolls and teddy bears invited to tea.

Visualizer: Len's Decor  

These unique wall shelves incorporate the house shaped theme above a childrens’ desk.

Shared kids’ rooms can be tough to organise. Make sure you give them each a place to sit at a desk to avoid squabbling.

Visualizer: Olia Paliichuk  

A house shaped memo board, wall shelf and even a pitched doorway add interest to this bedroom.

Visualizer: Len's Decor  

This older kids’ room incorporates a strong geometric print over the duvet cover, complemented by a wireframe geometric pendant light.

Older children may prefer to have their work areas more spread out to avoid overcrowding one another. This window seat provides a fluid continuation of line between the two separate work places.

Visualizer: Thao Uyen  

If your space won’t suit a large four poster bed frame, this pitched roof headboard is a nice alternative to incorporate the fashionable house shape theme in a more subtle and space saving way.

Visualizer: Tatyana Ryltsova  

A ceiling mounted swing seat is always happily received by young ones. A blackboard wall is another popular addition.

50 Gorgeous Outdoor Patio Design Ideas Thu, 19 Apr 2018 15:20:17 +0000 As the weather gets warmer, we all start spending more of our time outdoors. Our attention shifts from interior design projects to our outdoor spaces. Warmer months mean the chance to sit in the sunshine and enjoy cooking and eating meals with family and friends out in the fresh air. But, is your garden up to scratch for entertaining? If your backyard looks like it’s in need of a little tender loving care – or maybe an injection of some wow factor – then you’re in the right place. This patio design collection presents 50 gorgeous ideas on how to expertly present your al fresco dining and open air lounge areas.

Designer: Clements Design  

When considering how to design a patio, you must first map out what you aren’t able to change, like any established shrubs and trees. Rather than seeing these things as roadblocks to your patio design ideas, use these unmovable items as inspiration in the shaping or locating of your new garden area.

Warm summer days can still bring chilly winter nights. If you want to sit out long into the cooler evenings, or entertain way into the small hours, then it’s a good idea to incorporate a roaring outdoor fireplace into your backyard patio design.

Designer: Clements Design  

Why stop at just one outdoor patio design if you have the space to enjoy several? This sprawling garden offers up multiple patio ideas. A sociable lounge, an al fresco dining area and a couple of decks at the sides are all connected by contemporary stepping stone slabs.

Designer: Mary Barensfeld  

Once you have your patio garden design, you can have fun selecting outdoor furniture to complement it. This stunning patio has been kitted out with the Bellini Style White Outdoor Dining Chair. The white originals are available here.

A sun patio tops this multi-level garden, nestled under a pergola. It is accessed by concrete steps via a dining deck. Another set of steps lead down to a plunge pool behind glass balustrades.

This enclosed patio design is achieved with heavy planting overhead, and sheer voiles hung like banners to form a flowing wall. The voiles are knotted at their base to give them a little weight in the breeze. A romantic chandelier lights the outdoor dining table and Panton S Style chairs, as does a set of twinkling storm lanterns and table tealights. You can get the curvaceous Panton S Style Outdoor Chair here.

A half covered pergola provides areas of both light and shade around this quaint outdoor dining spot. A simple pendant light hangs at its centre.

Built-in seating can be constructed in solid concrete and dressed with cushions that are to be stowed away in winter months. The permanent seating structures can be used to create the perimeter of an outdoor room.

Photographer: Dabito  

This covered patio design features a hanging swing seat ina natural cane finish. The flooring is a stunning geometric tile in a joyful blue colourway; orange cushions on the outdoor sofa provide a stripe of warm contrast. The fence constructed around the seating has been stained ebony black for added drama. Two decorative plates hang on the fence to make it appear like a traditional room.

Backyard patio ideas abound here: A meeting of outdoor rugs in different hues and shapes, mismatched scatter cushions and throws brighten neutral rattan furniture, colour pop accent chairs and side tables with quirky candlesticks and bowls, statement pendant lighting and a woven screen to make the whole ensemble feel cosy and complete.

If clashing multi coloured accessories just aren’t your happy place, then how about choosing just one bold statement colour. This modern patio design is a dreamy vision in purple, teamed with natural accents and lush green planting. A striped rug reflects the slat lines of the overhead pergola roof, as well as adding some smart panache.

Designer: Elysian Landscapes  

This hot tub patio design incorporates two stunning tile patterns to make it a stand out space. Also note how the concrete walls have been painted a beautiful shade of blue to complement the tile colour. Pale blue pillows on the outdoor chaise add a finishing touch to the scheme.

Patio paver design ideas can incorporate pattern without the need for intricate and expensive tiling. You can use a combination of slabs and gravel to make patterns too.

Designer: Luciano Giubbilei  

This simplistic design patio lets the highly manicured garden topiary and large garden sculpture take the limelight.

Designer: Secret Gardens  

Minimalist gardens can be created with concrete patio design ideas that are pale in tone, and provide neat built in planters around the border. Low-level low-key garden furniture completes the look.

Designer: Luciano Giubbilei  

A concrete patio design can be teamed with areas of block paving to change things up a bit.

Designer: Michael Lee  

Outdoor lighting for borders deserves a spot in our round up of patio decorating ideas too. Uplighting plants gives a dramatic and warm effect, and extends the hours you can use your garden.

Designer: Designs By Sundown  

Another take on the outdoor fireplace – not one for homes with young children though. This small patio design also has a substantially sized built-in bench, which proves that you don’t need a huge area to create an impressive and functional outdoor entertaining space.

One cantilevered end extends from this bespoke garden bench. A matching coffee table balances on a semi-spherical base.

The backrest of this concrete bench extends all the way to the sides of some patio steps.

Belonging to a greenfingered homeowner, this simple patio design lets the plants do all the talking.

This patio landscape design holds linear beds of grasses and a tree lined border. A couple of lanterns hang from a nearby tree to help light evening festivities along with the log fire pit.

Designer: Harrisons Landscaping  

Patio design plans can be linked to interior spaces. Select interior and exterior flooring in the same tone to create a seamless look.

This neat narrow pool and patio design is a little slice of luxury.

Water features are an ever popular part of garden design and they work superbly when combined with outdoor patio design ideas, like this triple pond creation with decked walkways.

A bit of creative planting can be all the wow factor you need. Vertical planting is a great way to inject more natural beauty into small patio design ideas.

Designer: Marylou Sobel  

You can take vertical planting up as high as you dare.

Covered patio ideas include solid roofs that shelter from rainfall, awnings to shade well from sun, or a pergola canopy for areas of light and shade. Open rafters mean that you can weave plants through the beams, and are solid enough to hang an outdoor light.

Designer: Peter Fudge Gardens  

An Acapulco chair decorates this warm sun dappled deck, with a step stone paver patio design running off it.

For a change in texture, consider a deck over concrete patio design.

Designer: Elysian Landscapes  

Position your patio to take advantage of the best views.

Remember to cater for the little ones too by adding a few kids chairs.

Designer: Peter Fudge Gardens  

Gravel sections can be uncomfortable underfoot – especially on barefoot summer days! Add stepping stones to areas of loose chippings, you’ll thank us for it.

A natural or uneven edge adds extra character to a patio area.

Dress your new spot with an outdoor rug. You can pick up trendy geometric print designs like this for very reasonable prices in order to achieve a high-end dressed look. Add a few complementary cushions to your patio furniture for a fully cohesive scheme.

Designer: Peter Fudge Gardens  

Placing your sitting area in a lower section of the garden can protect it from chilly breezes.

An outdoor kitchen makes a luxurious and fun add-on.

Planting can be used to create privacy screening.

Designer: Wernerfield  

Cutting away rather than building upon the existing landscape creates interesting levels.

Designer: Wiktor Klyk  

This magical pavers patio is shrouded by trees at the end of a deck.

A circular formation makes a refreshing change from modern linear layouts.

A swing seat is reminiscent of childhood fun.

This patio cover design can be retracted to let in more sunlight.

Designer: Alana Langan   Photographer: Hannah Blackmore  

Blur the boundaries and bring the garden up onto patios and decking by introducing mature potted plants.

An eye-catching orb lamp looks fabulous out on this luxury terrace.

Visualizer: Karwan Muhammed & Karzan R. Sa'eed

Art Lover’s Red Blue and Green Home Decor Scheme Tue, 17 Apr 2018 14:28:42 +0000 A striking vision of rich colour, this 80 square metre modern apartment interior was designed by ATO Studio. Located in Moscow, Russian Federation Area, the home has a seriously arty air throughout. The lounge holds two modern paintings in colours that seem to have been the muse for this decor scheme – both in palette and cubist nature. Unusual contemporary furniture design, bespoke shelving units, wall and ceiling paint colours and tiling are a clashing concoction of solid bold green, deep blue and muted reds that transition from rich russet tones all the way through to the brink of pink. White spaces and wood tone balance the colourful scene.

Visualizer: Kirill Vill  

A gallery wall remains white in the living room, where two pieces of inspirational art is displayed within wainscot style framing. Another two walls are painted solid sage green, whilst a third and the floor are muted russet-brown. The darker colours in the room eat up the natural light coming from a large window but a white ceiling helps to lift the scheme.

The colours in the paintings are not the only part of the artwork to be replicated within the decor. The angular shapes can be seen echoed in the shape of two contemporary accent chairs that have been upholstered in light grey as a break from the rooms deep colour palette. Circular shapes have also been brought out of the paintings, translated into a round coffee table and a rug motif.

A single green cushion brightens the look of deep blue sofa upholstery. The legs of the dark sofa are a light beechwood to contrast. A neat circular side table matches the ruddy tones of the floor and window wall.

A minimalist style floor lamp stands beside the accent chairs and a cushioned window seat.

The windows are finished with simple white venetian blinds.

Beneath the television, the TV console unit is a bespoke design in a colourway that matches the style of the room and artwork perfectly. The cabinet doors are alternating hues of blue, black and russet with disguised geometric handles. A blue Tam-Tam side table matches the circular blue speakers of a sound system on top of the console unit.

The TV set itself is contained within a slender frame that holds narrow panes of glass around its sides. No decorative items have been placed on its glass surfaces – these are reserved for the bespoke shelving units that flank the doorway between the living area and the hallway.

A small selection of books and a blue elephant figurine occupy one of the double sided display spots.

The mix and match colour story continues in the dining area and adjoining kitchen.

The bespoke shelving units hold a selection of decorative ceramics which suit the proximity to the dining room. The ruddy brown framing of the display and storage units are echoed out in the hall, in the framework of closet doors.

The dining table is an unusual black and green design.

The kitchen that stands behind the dining suite holds a combination of green and grey cabinets and a pale red backsplash.

A large modern chandelier with glass shades is suspended over the dining table. A similar chandelier can be found here.

The table centrepiece is small and simple. In a interior design as colourful as this, not a lot of extra adornment is needed.

Modern dining chairs have dark blue upholstery over light beechwood frames.

Kitchen gadgetry is all of a vivid lime green colourway.

The kitchen sink is smoothly integrated into the workbench, completed with a modern nickel faucet.

The items on display in the living room can be viewed from the opposite side in the hallway.

A cushioned bench seat has been incorporated into the design of the display units located by the entry door.

The hallway floor has a crackle design.

In the master bedroom, a striking red bed is matched by a red acrylic chair and radiator. A pair of gold wall sconces cast light over rose coloured side tables.

The headboard wall is decorated with green frond print wallpaper, matching a green painted bedroom floor.

A blue area rug contrasts with the tomato red bed.

The red tinted acrylic vanity chair sits at a shallow table in front of a large round mirror.

In a home study area, a black and red desk chair matches a dark wood and red framed work desk.

A red frame runs around the edge of the headboard feature wall.

An ensuite bathroom holds a blue vanity unit.

The blue vanity unit is mounted onto a wall of white and pink tiles.

Matching tiling surrounds the bathtub and over bath shower.

A mirrored wall cabinet completes the vanity area.

Above the bathroom tiling, walls are dark green to deepen the scheme. The green upper wall is matched by recessed green cubby shelves by the toilet and inside the shower enclosure. The shelves are lit from within by LED strip lights.

The wardrobe doors of a kids’ room are painted in chalkboard paint to give the little ones a place to artistically express themselves. The floor around a set of red bunkbeds has been quirkily divided into three sections: one wood, one pink painted wood, and one smooth green section by the desk.

The double workspace spans the windows for good daytime reading light. A pink wall shelf displays a selection of photographs and plants.

In the kids’ ensuite bathroom, a red vanity unit contrasts with bottle green wall tiles.

A deep blue ceiling caps the scheme.

50 Ideas To Decorate The Wall You Hang Your TV On Mon, 16 Apr 2018 14:15:42 +0000 Entertainment walls have become an important living room feature, and now provide stiff competition for the traditional feature fireplace. TV lovers want their box in pride of place to achieve the optimum viewing angle, so increasingly the lounge fireplace is being bumped to a side wall or corner adornment. This interior reshuffle leaves space to imagine a new living room feature wall with the TV at its centre. It also presents extra requirements for storage of receiver and recorder equipment, plus movie media, consoles and games. So how do we achieve a modern vista beautiful enough to take the place of a mantelpiece, and on what do we now display our treasured items?

This wall and base unit combo is mounted against a wood panel backdrop, which visually holds the entire arrangement together. The TV is mounted to one end of the long console, with the opposite side being used as the ideal place to display a few favourite art prints lit by designer lamps.

The wood panel behind this TV runs up against a tall bookcase of matching wood tone.

Due to the slimline storage space requirements of a media console unit, layouts can get creative. This offset alignment gives the illusion of sliding volumes, pulling away to leave display nooks.

This backlit television makes a feature of its woodgrain mount even when the screen is not in use. A block arrangement of media units to the side creates a place to display decorative and treasured items.

Visualizer: Snuper Design  

In this living room, not just the television but the TV wall panel itself is backlit. The feature provides a lovely cosy glow, in lieu of a traditional flame fireplace. The low shelf at the base of the installment is reminiscent of a hearth too.

Visualizer: Hung Le  

Wall mounted units are a popular choice for a TV wall. Uninterrupted floor space looks clear and tidy; the room looks more spacious and is also easier to clean. The LED lighting strip that runs beneath the upper unit in this particular arrangement adds to the look of weightlessness, as well as illuminating display items beneath.

Visualizer: Ngoc Nguyen  

This entertainment wall is made up of a floor standing base unit and a unique wall shelf that displays motivational posters on its surface and a small selection of books within a neat return.

Visualizer: Vizline Studio  

If it’s a luxe look you’re after then how about mounting your TV onto marble effect panels. A side positioned contemporary fireplace on a low level wall mounted unit adds to the high-end finish.

Running a backing panel vertically, all the way from floor to ceiling, creates the impression of a chimney breast when there is none.

Visualizer: Lens Decor  

Using two contrasting materials over your wall and storage volumes brings added interest.

Designer: Talispace  

Cat lovers can use the entertainment wall as an opportunity to incorporate cat ladders and feline hideaways. This cleverly constructed wall disguises a cat ladder as a set of casually offset shelves and a cabinet display nook. There is also a cat flap leading into a compartment within an adjacent cupboard.

Designer: The November Design  

No wall on which to hang your TV? No problem. Consider installing a half height room divide to hold your TV set. The home pictured here topped off the room divider with some internal windows to allow natural light to flow between two spaces.

You almost don’t notice the TV in this home beyond the plant stands. Dark window frames balance out the black TV set, and backlit display nooks draw the eye away.

Like optical illusions? Check out how this red paintwork has been applied to appear as a 3D box behind the TV, and the way pale grey sections of paint across the ceiling and floor create a nook with the adjoining bookcase.

Visualizer: Alina Puzhak  

TVs in the kitchen don’t have to be plonked at the end of a countertop either. This one nestles nicely where a run of wall cupboards have been brought up short. The bright yellow ones above pull the kitchen and the television area together.

Visualizer: Archivizer  

Wood finish accent walls don’t have to be flat. This amazing wooden wall has been designed to mimic shattered glass, with each section of wood cut into a shard. The wooden ‘shards’ were then mounted not quite flush, so that each piece would reflect the light at a slightly different angle to achieve the desired effect.

Visualizer: BIM Group  

Wood slat walls are another great way to give added texture to a woodtone wall. This one also incorporates sections of ‘living wall’, with plants situated right between the slats.

Grey toned wood has been spliced into a tile-like design here. The same wood tone is used for the door of a base console and a side unit that displays decorative crockery and wine glasses.

Cool Futuristic Style Home Interiors Fri, 13 Apr 2018 14:15:33 +0000 We’ve all seen the futuristic interior design ideas splashed across space and time travel movies, and gradually these aesthetics are becoming a reality. Heads are being turned by new ideas on furniture design, and minimalist hidden storage ideas are adding to the mix to forge the way forward. What exactly does home style of the future look like? See for yourself with these futuristic interiors that offer us two quite different takes on the theme. The first encompasses stark white decor in an angular living space. The second is a softer transition into the future, with some familiar furniture silhouettes and colour relief mixed in with geometric influence and fresh thinking.

Designer: Anfei Chen  

Our first home design project, entitled the ‘Crystal’ Apartment, is a dramatic change from the soft surroundings that we’ve become accustomed to. Triangular cuts and folded edges create a strong visual impact, almost as though the interior was formed by a master of origami. The paper art theme is continued over in the window dressing too, where window blinds have cutaways to create a unique undulating pattern from end to end. The unique coffee table appears like a giant broken shard of mirrored glass.

One end of the sofa is raised like a cantilevered deck, echoing the same design feature as the neighbouring coffee table.

Angled cutaways in the wall and ceiling create plains for extra light sources, which help bathe the arctic white room with brightness and reflection over its ice-smooth floor. Stainless mirrors and dimming glasses have been implemented to increase the look of space.

One of the cutaway angles acts as a bench seat opposite the sofa. Other occasional seating in the room comes in the form of two small white drum stools, which have a folded paper look around their base.

The sofa is shaped almost like a lightning strike, with one end impacting against a wall with an accessible shelf on which to place books and drinks.

A control panel is concealed in a wall that marks the transition into the kitchen.

The white bedroom incorporates all of the same design elements as the living area, including geometric cutaways and the undulating profile of privacy blinds…

… This is because the bed is located directly behind the sofa, making the entire apartment one single open plan living space. The open flow makes every millimeter count in the limited dimensions of this apartment, allowing the eye to absorb the whole space from corner to corner – even the bathroom can be seen through a glass panel.

The dining area is an irregular shaped breakfast bar, teamed with angular kitchen counter stools.

The breakfast bar light is a set of minimalist pendant lights.

Inside the bathroom, folded edges make the toilet look like a modern art sculpture. An irregular shaped basin sits on the modern bathroom vanity.

We can see from the home plan that the bathtub also has a bespoke outline.

Designer: Martins Architect  

A young couple resides in this Italian Quarter townhouse in Kiev. One of the homeowners is the head of an advanced IT company, which inspired the home designers to focus on technical progress and functionality. As well as having an ultra modern interior style, the apartment meets all of the requirements of a smart home. All the building elements are connected by one system so the owners can use just one smartphone app to maintain control of the security system, monitor the heating system with a heat pump, regulate central ventilation and air conditioning, and manage lighting and electrical appliances at any time, wherever they might be in the world.

The 250 square metre home is decorated with a base of gallery white and deepest black, with an overlay of bright furniture and colourful illumination. A diode light changes color to suit the mood of the owners and the time of day.

Feature walls have been lit from below to emphasise texture and colour. This enormous dining table light has a crunched effect to its shade for an angular look.

The staircase balustrade continues the free-formed angular look. This two-storey townhouse has one open plan social space on the ground floor, with a private zone upstairs. The home has twelve rooms and a terrace on each level. At the bottom of the staircase a pixelated work of art plays on the theme of computer technology, the inspiration for this home interior.

A large table has three dining chairs to one side, and three desk chairs surrounding another two sides. Flat fronted, handle-free cupboard doors subtly conceal their secret contents.

One ergonomic desk chair faces a stand holding dual computer screens. An undulating ceiling pendant lights the whole area.

In the master bedroom there is a soft feature wall that supports a modern wall sconce at each side of the bed; these are the Scantling Wall Light. The bed itself is a cosy loosely upholstered design in contrast to the rest of the smooth minimalist room decor. A bright yellow powder-coated metal shelving unit displays a few special items.

A bespoke window seat has been created as part of the window frame, extending out from the wall like a shelf.

The bathroom is a charcoal grey and white affair with warm wooden accent furniture.

The double sink bathroom vanity has one continuous surface that dips away for the basins.

A walk in shower spans the length of the bathroom.
