A small modern apartment in Moscow

Posted on Tue, 13 Aug 2019 by KiM

This 40 m² apartment in Moscow is a flawless example of how to maximize space when there isn’t much to work with. Cartelle Design used a grey base and added bits of colour with a bold AF yellow bed and platform, a red mirror in the hallway and pretty pink tile in the bathroom. High ceilings and large windows across the apartment help to make it feel larger and loft-like. Love this.

Top 20 A’ Design Award Winners

Posted on Mon, 12 Aug 2019 by KiM

A’ Design Award & Competition is organized and awarded annually and internationally in a wide range of categories, and is a competition that blows my mind each year with the amount of ingenuity that the contestants bring to the table. Projects that focus on innovation, technology, design and creativity are awarded with the A’ Award. While realized projects find opportunities to get published, reach new markets and meet a wide range of buyers for their existing products, the organization also helps the creative minds and startups to meet with the business people to realize their product ideas. Here is a look at 20 past winners that designed some pretty amazing products or spaces…

Bright colours against white in an Ibiza home

Posted on Sun, 11 Aug 2019 by KiM

Sharing another Ibiza home with you that is making me crave a holiday once again. Typical white Ibizan architecture is livened up with some very bold and bright colours in the furnishings and accessories making this a super fun family home. The exterior isn’t too shabby either 🙂 Via Nuevo Estilo.

An eclectic mix in a Colorado farmhouse

Clearly Fern Santini enjoys colours, patterns and layers and having fun with her spaces, as is evident in this Boulder, Colorado farmhouse she designed. She also cleverly mixes furniture from different eras to keep things from being too predictable. Lover her creativity. (Architect: Annette Martin, photos: Nick Johnson)
