The concrete penthouse in Berlin

Do you remember my post about concrete in interior design? I just found this amazing apartment on TrendLand and I had to share the pictures with you. The owners, Christian Boros and Karen Lahmans were looking for a large space to live and exhibit their large art collection, in Berlin. They decided to buy a large, five story bunker, built in 40’s.  The top floor was transformed into a penthouse. The four others were reserved for exhibition space. They decided to leave the open space of the bunker. On the walls of the penthouse they used a concrete, that created a unique, industrial look. Most of the furniture was found in antique stores. The apartment is decorated by over 100 art pieces, a part of their eccentric and personal collection.

What about wallpaper on the ceiling?

Lately, I have read on the Apartment Therapy blog about the idea of putting wallpaper on the ceiling. I had always thought that it will make the interior look smaller and less airy, however I have looked at couple pictures and I became convinced that it can be an interesting surprise! It can really look fun and bold!

TIP: Putting wallpaper on the ceiling is more complicated that its look like. You save yourself a lot of work and stress if you hire professionals!

Scandinavian style in the bedroom

Scandinavian style can be characterized by simplicity and minimalism. The color palette includes shades white and cream, often combined with wood and metal. We can also observe some details in natural colors: greens, browns, grays. This style is perfect for the bedroom, where we want to be surrounded by simplicity and calmness. Here are some of my favorite scandinavian style bedrooms:
