oday I am sharing my latest computer-generated visualisation project: a Mid Century interior in a classic city apartment. Some of the furniture is vintage, some of it is new (but inspired on Mid Century design) and some of the pieces I designed myself, such as the dining table and the Sputnik Chandelier.
n my earlier post on Dark Decor, I posted an image of a large ceramic stove in the Et Hem Hotel in Stockholm, Sweden. I was quite intrigued by this huge, beautiful contraption so I decided to do some research on it. It turns out that this kind of stove is called a “Kakelugn”, Swedish for a tiled stove.
efore starting about the new spring/summer collection of Broste Copenhagen, first of all I would like to wish you all a (belated) happy, healthy and prosperous new year. Hope you all had a lovely holiday and that you are fuelled with new inspiration and plans for the new year. I know I am.
heepskins are so perfect for these cold December days, especially for the shivery types like myself. Draped over a chair they add a lovely warmth and softness to your back. Spread on the floor next to your bed they keep the early morning iciness from your feet. Added as a lining to a pram will keep your baby warm, soft and sleepy (yeah, so you can do some shopping!).
or years now, the Pantone Color Insitute has selected a Color of the Year that would, according to them, reign in the design world for the next 365 days. In 2014 it was Radiant Orchid, a shade of Lilac that was seen as the symbol of economic recovery and optimism for humanity.
t has been a while since my last post. I have been very busy with my “real” job, making computer-generated visualisations for interior design projects. I thought it would be fun to post some of the latest results of an Amsterdam townhouse here today. It is a design for a typical Amsterdam-Zuid townhouse. These houses were built around 1900 and are usually about 15 metres deep by 6 metres wide.
know, antlers mounted on the wall are a favourite design staple of many designers and stylists. Especially with christmas nearing, I’m sure we will see them around a lot again. But I think we may have seen enough of them. When this trend hit interior-land a few years ago, it hit hard. Antlers mounted on the walls of country houses situated in hunting territories are an obvious choice. The same goes for wooden ski-chalets in snowy mountainous areas.
ark bedrooms: according to my top-post Dark Decor we are all in the mood for a bit of darkness. Dark bedrooms may seem gloomy, but I think they’re very fitting for this season of dark days ahead of us. And don’t be afraid of the dark, total darkness is best for a good night’s sleep.
inimal or industrial kitchens – cool, elegant and bare of distracting titbits – work so well in old buildings. The straight, angular lines of 21st century minimal kitchens contrast beautifully with the ornamental plaster ceilings and decorated wall panelling that were “de rigeur” in the 19th and 18th century. Just like my earlier post on the modern-classic mix, the one enhances the other.
