Mud room or entryway closet are often first thing that your guests notice when they enter your home, so it is really important to keep it neat. However, it is really difficult to organize such a small space.

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.

Bitter-sweet nursery

Usually nurseries are full of sweet colors and toys. Most parents concentrate on “baby” things and forget to keep style in mind. If you are planning on decorating a room for your youngest family member, look at the picture below. They’re full of great inspirations. Pay attention to tough structures and colors combined with soft fabrics and faux fur. The soft and romantic pastels were spiced with stylish, modern designs and decorative elements… And don’t forget: the wall art doesn’t have to present fairy tales or Disney characters! The letters, quotes and pictures can create a beautiful gallery in your baby room!

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!

Northern Delights: Scandinavian Homes, Interiors and Design

As a Scandinavian style lover, I treat the Emma Fexeus Blog as my bible. I couldn’t have been happier when I found out that this incredible blogger published a collection of pictures that emphasize her style. Northern Delights: Scandinavian Homes, Interiors and Design presents classic, Scandinavian style, but also does not forget about modern, creative designers. The selection of pictures gathered in the book shows everything that is so great about Scandinavian style: clarity, freshness, simplicity and innovation. You can order this publication on Amazon or Barns and Noble. Here are couple samplers from the book:
