Play with bedroom paint to create a pleasant atmosphere: maybe paint just one wall a different colour or make the ceiling stand out. Then, when work is finished, you can enjoy a good night’s sleep in your perfect bedroom. Sleigh beds have curved or scrolled footboards and headboards, resembling a horse-drawn sleigh, hence the name. Made from different materials like wood, steel, iron, aluminum, rattan or leather, sleigh beds have come a long way from the early design days of the first half of the 19th Century.

This residence in Mexico City proves that a concrete home can also be open to the surroundings. This was a project by JJRR/Arquitectura. The architects made sure that the house takes full advantage of its location and in particular the views by elevating the building 1.3 meters above the ground. Full-height windows and a green roof terrace allow the house to blend in naturally and to open up the interior spaces to the views and the vast outdoors.

Making a house look natural in its setting, as if it organically grew on the plot is no easy task yet architect Tatiana Bilbao did a great job when designing this family home in Mexico City. The project is actually a collection of five-sided concrete blocks that seem to naturally emerge from the hillside. They offer panoramic views towards Monterrey as each block is strategically oriented to capture and frame different parts of the landscape.

There’s a small private courtyard in front, sort of like a buffer zone between the internal spaces and the street. The wood on the facade is stained and has a rich finish which contrasts with the galvanized steel elements. The North facade, the one facing the river, has a totally different structure. This is an all glass facade which doesn’t exactly give much privacy but, at the same time, exposes the internal spaces to the expansive views. The glass also contributes to an overall look that’s robust on one hand but also open and airy on the other hand. Such contrasts are actually quite common with this project.
Chantrell Meunier Exterior, 2017-04-15 08:00:33. Somehow, the idea of living in a concrete house doesn’t sound that appealing and that’s because of the cold nature of this material. Concrete is not warm or soft or pleasant to the touch like wood is for example and that gives it a bad reputation in a certain sense. But what we don’t take into consideration in those cases is the versatility, durability and in a way also the beauty of concrete. All of these are characteristics which can be exploited in great ways by architects and designers and these dream concrete houses are perfect examples.
Celesse Legrand Exterior, 2017-03-17 07:00:08. If there’s one thing floor-to-ceiling windows excel at, it’s framing a beautiful view and bringing the outdoors in. Architects from all over the world are making the most of the wonderful locations they work with by including full-height windows in their designs. They get to connect houses to their surroundings and to immerse them into nature in the most beautiful and inspiring ways. Get ready to be inspired.
Fleur Prevost Exterior, 2017-04-07 08:00:55. A beach house isn’t really complete without floor-to-ceiling windows or some other design strategy meant to connect it to the views. This house designed by Martin Gomez Arquitectos is a very good reflection of this idea. It’s located in Punta del Este, in Uruguay. In order to be able to frame these beautiful views, studio Element Arkitekter AS designed this house in Rogaland, Norway with a rather odd-looking top floor that’s partially cantilevers and resembles a periscope. Up here, a glazed wall overlooks the water and the land in the distance.
Advent Fournier Bathroom, 2017-03-26 02:37:21. If you like a long walk through the woods during the winter months, or enjoy the outdoors with some sporting activity that mean you get muddy, why not makeover your bathroom with a deep chocolate tone to give it a new look? Avoid traditional blues and whites. Go for creams and beige surfaces as well as muddy browns for a novel approach to your usual color palette. Large wall and floor tiles, that present an even a coffee hue, look great set off against brilliant white grouting. Brown bathrooms are ideal to clean up in, once you get home after a muddy workout. If you like the idea of a wet room but still want a traditional sort of bathroom, go for a partition system. This will afford you the best of both worlds. By installing a glazed partition you can create two distinct zones. One will be for bathing and showering and the other can remain dry. After all, if you simply want to use the toilet a wet room that has been recently used to shower in can sometimes be unappealingly wet. Make over your bathroom so that you have two areas, one dry one wet, but both sympathetically decorated to create a unified look.
