Lorraine Duplanty Furniture, December 10th , 2017. Modern wicker was initially developed as a basket weaving technique. In time, it evolved into furniture. By the 17th century, in Northern Europe, wicker looked a lot like it does today. The trend soon spread all over the world and became as popular and as common as it is today. Then, in the mid 19th century it reached the United States where it was quickly industrialized and mass-produced.
Byron Guibord Furniture, December 10th , 2017. We‘re all familiar with rattan, although sometimes we think it‘s one and the same as wicker. But the material we now associate with cozy furniture is actually full of surprises. The term rattan, for instance, defines more than 600 species of climbing palms and a lot of them are in fact more similar to lianas than to actual wood. Rattan has slender stems and doesn‘t grow like a tree but more like a vine, also being a bit similar to bamboo from certain points of view.
Annette Clavette Bedroom, December 10th , 2017. Stuck for a solution for low height bedrooms? This attic-style abode makes the most of space, with a diagonal wooden wall and matching wooden platform. Hang your trinkets, pot plants and a few shelves below its circular lights for a bedroom feature.
Brigitte Dupuis Furniture, December 10th , 2017. Another idea can be to use a folding or collapsible table which you can put away when you‘re not using it. It would be similar to a folding chair which you only take out when you have guests, storing it out of sight the rest of the time. A similar option can be a wall-mounted table that folds flat against the wall and which would use a similar similar to that of a Murphy bed.
Guillaume Goguen Bedroom, December 10th , 2017. Prefer your panelling in the other direction? This horizontal wooden wall juxtaposes two fantail lights and hanging plants, providing a rustic beauty with two bedroom ledges. Miss your childhood treehouse? This wooden bedroom provides the next best thing, with a hanging hammock bed and spray-can artwork. Two tones of a wooden wall and ceiling provide simple and warm contrasts.
Delit Desaulniers Interior, December 10th , 2017. Located in Singapore, this apartment is both international and eclectic, featuring artists from all over the world. Many of the decorations are from the owner‘s personal art collection. The interior could be described as whimsical, which would be fitting: the owner and designer, KNQ Associates, intended the blank canvas of the apartment to be a playful experiment and testing ground for style, material, and texture.
Durandana Patenaude Furniture, December 10th , 2017. A space needs to include heavy and sturdy decor items if you want it to look masculine. Delicate forms, curves, sleek lines and lightweight furnishings are the opposite of that. Look for materials such as solid wood and metal and make sure at least some of your furniture pieces have a solid and strong impact on the overall decor and ambiance of the space. Obviously, don’t exaggerate and also remember to balance out that heaviness with some glass accents, cozy fabrics and light colors.
Roger Barjavel Interior, December 10th , 2017. The space afforded by the 11-foot ceilings is put to good use, with a loft converted into an entertainment area. Museum-style track lighting increases the perception that one is in an art gallery. Certain soothing details such as soft features and warm neutral colors create a grounding, casual atmosphere. There‘s also a fun dose of pop art: A handmade “Open“ sign, built from a wine crate and neon wording, hangs from the loft and illuminatesdepictions of both Queen Elizabeth of England and Chairman Mao.
Amorette Rancourt Bathroom, December 10th , 2017. Some designs add more functional and practical than others. For example, this freestanding washbasin has a built-in handle which can be used as a towel holder. Its beautifully integrated into the design of the sink.
Pinabel Rouze Outdoor, December 10th , 2017. A big family house overtakes the space, appearing almost as majestic as the trees surrounding it. The white picket fence gives it a friendlier feeling and creates a subtle barrier between the passersby and property itself. A thin picket fence can allow those who pass your house to have a little peek into your garden, but thanks to its pointed look it remains a boundary that protects your space. A large house can give the impression that it’s looming over the low picket fence, making it appear even smaller than it is. Color-coordinated with a fence on the porch, this white picket fence contrasts the house with its short height. A tall white house built in a Victorian style looks like it escaped out of a dream! The whole setting is absolutely magical and greatly perfected by the white picket fence that carries a bit of a vintage style itself.
