The client’s guesthouse was built in the 1990s and still had it’s original finishes. The casita had so much potential with large windows and a beautiful arched ceiling, but the old carpet, discolored geometric 90s wallpaper, and poor lighting placement distracted from the architecture. The homeowners host friends and family often, so they wanted an updated space that was a relaxing and calming escape for their guests. Since the architecture had an interest of its own, Emily Lauren Interiors decided to pare back to the essentials — raw materials, a simple color palette, a cozy bed, an office area, and a small lounge next to the kitchenette. To keep the space calm and relaxing, they created a warm, monotone color palette and infused texture to create contrast and depth. The casita materials palette includes limewash on the walls and ceilings, white oak floors and floating desk, linen bedding and drapery,…

When two sister in-law dentists went to Reena Sotropa In House Design Group studio they were in need of a major overhaul to transform an outdated dental office space they had just purchased. Their clinic, Destination Dental, is not your average dental practice, it is also a wellness spa! Specializing in both dentistry services as well as cosmetics, dermaplaning, massages, and more. This unique concept called for a space that was just as unique and luxurious! When the clients approached the studio, all they had was a branding package consisting of mint and hunter green tones with brass accents. With this in mind, designers brainstormed and developed a space that completely captured a feeling that was aligned with their pre-existing look for their brand’s graphics.

The 1930’s warehouse shell has been transformed by Maike Design into a bright and inspiring creative work space. Providing different zones of use throughout offers the flexibility required for both collaborative work and individual creative exploration whilst retaining the original building’s sense of scale. Studio Sisu is designed to address the physical limitations and isolation of an industry fractured by small studio business models. It brings together complimentary businesses to create opportunities for discussion and interaction amongst peers. Encouraging creative collaboration of ideas and skills creates an environment otherwise inaccessible to small businesses or individual practitioners. Using a mixture of high and low cost materials, furniture and fittings has allowed the design to create a highly crafted and unique environment within the specified budget. The inclusion of refurbished antique furniture and fittings allows the new building work to sit comfortably alongside the existing factory structure. Photography : Sean Fennessy See…

The brunch bistro that puts ingredients front-and-center served as an inspiration to dekleva gregoric architects to unveil the space in a similarly candid way: by stripping down the walls and ceiling, we laid out the space’s history from underneath decades of plaster. The naked walls revealed memories from times past, with a mixed construction of brick and stone and brick vaults typical for ground floors in 19th century town structures.The light fixtures are similarly pared back, with nothing but bare bulbs attached to copper wiring, which runs against the ceiling and wall, then disappears in the gap between wooden floor and brick wall. Custom-designed white marble tables reference the traditional French bistro table, their small size and shape allowing for various arrangements of the seating layout, adapting to individuals, couples or private group setups. The thin black structures are also featured on the food showcase wall in the form of…

The family business was looking for a corporate project that would escape the standard office concept – instead, they wanted to feel at home. The integration of spaces with a minimalist, contemporary and sophisticated essence were other key elements, for clients with close ties to art and design.  For this corporate project, developed on 250 m², Schuchovski Arquitetura transformed a broad atmosphere – intended for only two partners and five employees – in a truly warm and welcoming space. The use of wood, the choice of powerful works of art and exemplaries of design furniture (such as Vitra armchairs and Tom Dixon lighting) collaborate in creating such an atmosphere. The project is also characterized by a clean and pure concept, in the essence of minimalism, yet extremely refined with the use of marble and metals.

The goal: gorgeous, graceful rooms that segue seamlessly as you explore. Rooms with stucco, arches and fireplaces do not necessarily need to be furnished with 19th-century furniture or vintage items. You can add bright modern sofas and thin-legged armchairs, turn to handmade ceramics, or add abstract art!!! See also :https://house-diaries.com/at-home-with-athena-calderone-by-zara-home/
