You can always find inspiration in the beautiful colors of a flowery field, the tranquility of a forest or the wonderful textures found everywhere around. You can bring some of that beauty inside your home by using materials such as wood mixed with earthy colors and organic patterns. Chairs are more important than you think. They can define the style of a space. For example, a very simple dining table can be complemented by a series of colorful and interesting-looking chairs and this will make the whole room stand out. Similarly, the armchairs and accent chairs you use in the living room can set the mood. A beanbag chair will create a very casual and cozy ambiance while a more traditional design will add elegance to the space.

A silver bathroom sink would definitely be something special. The color is quite common so if you want to have something that indeed attracts attention you should also opt for an interesting shape. Lots of people like incorporating natural materials into their bathroom’s design. If you want something elegant that, at the same time, would look unique, you could opt for materials that aren’t necessarily rare but that aren’t commonly used in the bathroom. For example, this wooden sink is very interesting

It stands on a site that overlooks Loch Dunvegan and it has floor-to-ceiling windows in every room, including the bathroom. Every window captures a different part of the view and together they frame the whole panorama beautifully. The view is definitely important but so is having a comfortable place from where to enjoy it. Architect Olga Freiman designed this beautiful retreat in Moscow, Russia and made sure to have a cozy lounge area facing the panorama framed by the full-height glass wall.

For a house that tries to close itself off as much as possible in respect to the street and the neighbors, this family home has surprisingly open spaces and facades. This unusual combination was achieved by moarqs + OTTOLENGHI architects by combining two contrasting materials: concrete and glass. The design strategy was to have a more open ground floor while the first floor is closed and private. Both floors have full-height glass walls but the difference is that there’s a concrete shell which wraps around the upper floor, framing the spaces and blocking the views but at the same time allowing them to be fully open to the courtyard.

It’s what studio Clauwers & Simon did when designing this residence in Belgium. The building is organized around a courtyard and its design is a tribute to Belgian architect Juliann Lampens who is known for the extensive use of concrete both inside and out the buildings designed back in the 1960s. The impact of the concrete in this particular case is softened by the timber and the views of the large garden.

The U Retreat was designed by IDMM architects on a steep site overlooking a sharp vertical cliff and nature and the surroundings had a lot to do with its unique design. The forms of the cliff and the trees that surround the building were inspiration for the forms and layouts that define the concrete structure.
