Architect Tatsuyuki Takagi envisioned Fly Out House, a m odernresidence in the shape of a cantilevered volume in Toyohashi, Japan. The project was especially built for a small family and suspended above the ground in order to provide an optimum level of privacy from the busy street. Opposite to the main road, views of the neighboring residential area are framed through large windows.The clients’ brief requested a home that would accommodate a large open-plan living space for the family, but also provide parking for the husband’s car collection: “To leave most of the budget for the living area, this project began by proposing a blueprint which will provide enough parking space and create comfortable living by taking an advantage of the less valued sloping land. In this case the client came to us before the purchase, so it became our target to bring the most effective cost between which sort of land to purchase and the design to be built on top“, the architects explained.In order to reduce noise pollution, a deep balcony (serving as a buffer zone) was imagined between the living area and the street side. A plywood staircase leads the way to the bedrooms, tucked away in the most secluded area of the house. [Photography by Satoshi Asakawa]

A former tax agency in Stockholm, Sweden was recently converted by Richard Lindvall into an impressive venue that accommodates conference zones, a cafe, a bistro and more. The architects entirely re-purposed the building, transforming it from a maze of small meeting rooms into an open space with high ceilings: “The interior is inspired by Scandinavian minimalism with an industrial twist and with Inspiration from hotels and restaurants in Shanghai, New York and Amsterdam. Big impressive buildings with lots of space and hard materials, but which are still keeping a welcoming atmosphere are rare in Sweden. It was important to create a warmth in the environments, but still keep it raw and fresh.”The array of materials is impressive: maple wood, cognac colored leather, concrete, galvanized steel, white tiles and black iron details create a stylish but relaxed atmosphere. Orange and brown were used for table tops, side tables, cabinet doors and menus. Concrete has the main role in the design and you can see it used for the floors, reception desk, bars, the large sofa table and the 3,5 meter wash basin in the bathroom. The venue is divided into three rooms and a black iron installation serves as the focal functional point.  [Information provided by  Richard Lindvall; Photography by Johan Annerfelt]

Designed by MARTINarchitects, this transparent loft in Kiev makes you question your need for privacy. What does privacy mean to you and how can you play with it to shape inspiring living spaces? An unusual feeling follows the transparency between living spaces, dining spaces and the bedroom. Not many people can see themselves living in a home that flaunts a lack of interest in conformity.Architects Igor Martin and Olga Novikova of MARTINarchitects knew how to create a space that is both soothing and engaging.An eye-catching green wall lines one side of the dining space, while the other wall is made out of brick. In-between, floor-to-ceiling windows expose guests at the table to stunning city panoramas. The transparent loft occupies 115 square meters. Overlooking the city of Kiev through expansive windows, the sophisticated loft spaces flow from one into another. Belonging to a dynamic young lawyer, this bachelor pad was designed with his owner’s lifestyle in mind. Once per week, the owner and his friends get together to play table games.This is what guests experience: a contemporary loft design infused with Ukrainian craftsmanship. Apart from being a smart house that complies to the owner’s personal phone requests, the transparent loft ahowcases a clearly bold bachelor style. Igor Martin’s furniture pieces from HIS (Home Ideas Supply) make a debut in this exemplary loft design. For example, the fascinating lights that make up the bedroom’s cozy atmosphere can be found in Igor Martin’s collection. Photographs by Igor Karpenko helps us imagine being there, eating at that inviting dining table and sleeping in the elegant bedroom.How would you go about your day if this transparent loft was your home?

Designed by Stu/D/O Architects for a family of four, the Joly House in Bangkok, Thailand is a three-level building with a total footprint of 250 square meters. The residence stands out from far away in its dense neighborhood, due to the wood louver panels combined with exposed concrete and its total height of eleven meters. A swimming pool on the second level completes the image of a contemporary luxurious home. With its transparent glass bottom, it allows natural light inside the parking spaces and the main entrance on the first level.According to the architects, “the retractable wood louvers on the third floor are designed using the analysis of the wind walls and shading device diagrams and can be adjusted for variations in the incident angle of sunlight. Combined with the wood louvers on the third floor, the glass louvers on the second level surrounding the swimming pool courtyard help create an ambiance of privacy for this corner house.” The interiors are spacious and airy, with some of the social zones connected to green courtyards.

Opus Architekten completed the design of Nursery +E, a modern nursery project developed for the Town council of the City of Marburg, Germany. The new building comes with a total surface of 1100 square feet and displays an intricate modern architecture: “With the ground floor partly built right into the slope, the compact, two-storied building attracts attention with its folded glass facade towards the meadow and the also multiply folded roof. This striking exterior shape results in a high recognition value, not only for reasons of design but also to create an energy-plus house.” Solar panels are integrated in the folding facade, perfectly aligned to attract as much energy as possible.The modern nursery offers five group rooms for about 50 children: “On the ground floor are two group rooms and a multi-function room next to the entrance. In the back, below-ground area, on the other hand, are the technology- and the housekeeping- as well as the storage rooms, a kitchen and a staff room with an atrium in-between. On the upper level are the other three group rooms. All the group rooms were similarly designed and two groups each at the most share a differentiating area.” With plenty of glass openings and mirrored surfaces, the building reflects shades of green and wood. This makes for a good integration within the landscape, despite the avant-garde shape. [Photographs: Eibe Sönnecken]

Artigas Arquitectes completed the design of R House, a private residence with a clean modern architecture located in Barcelona, Spain. According to the architects,”the difficulty of the great slope is the predominant factor behind this house project. It is distributed and adapted into the natural ground from pure volumes, instead of making great modifications to the topography, so it creates three habitable levels with wide terrace spaces that have excellent orientation, and a direct and easy relation between the interior and the exterior of the house.”Instead of building a monolithic dwelling, the architects opted for a home that is partially broken up and adapted to the site. Thus, they created “a group of different volumes and roofs strategically arranged to exude character. Each floor has different features that adopt the spaces according to a certain program, using natural materials like white concrete natural stone”. The interiors are welcoming and dynamic, with colorful design elements contributing to a joyful ambiance. Acting as the social core of the house, the open plan kitchen and dining area extends outdoors with a large covered terrace. [Photos by Isabel Casanova]

Overlooking Lake Vichuquén, in Maule Region, Chile, RP House by CMA Arquitectos was developed longitudinally, in order to capture various perspectives of the landscape. According to the architects, its main volume is defined as a large pavilion, “a body that rests quietly on the territory, mimicking the slope and vegetation. All the stillness of this body is eroded on its roof, which folds into different prisms which capture the overhead light and views of the treetops, bringing inside the spatial perception of living in a forest.” A corridor terrace runs along the length of the dwelling, offering opportunities for quality family moments outdoors.A rustic vibe is exuded by the interiors, which seem to play with light and visual perspectives: “Internally, each space builds its own atmosphere, in a wooden enclosure that traverses floors, walls and roof, until getting lost in the ceiling. A concrete structure intersects the wooden pavilion in the rear, as a longitudinal volume with opaque walls and voids that contain within them all the wet program of the house: bathrooms and kitchen, where each enclosure opens to a light courtyard contained within its walls.” Any thoughts on this unconventional home design in Chile?

A laundry room is increasing in popularity as a necessary household improvement. The 10 laundry room ideas we share will help create a space that’s organized, up to date and attractive enough to enjoy during laundry chore time.If you are wondering where the best place to add a laundry room would be, think of convenience first. Set your laundry room up near where dirty laundry would collect, or near the bedrooms where clean laundry gets sent. Some other favorite laundry room locations include near the entry, mud-room adjacent, in the kitchen, in a bathroom or near a closet or dressing area.Keep in mind that accidental flooding may sometimes happen. Waterproof the flooring below the laundry machine, especially if your laundry room is located on a second floor. Some good ways to waterproof include adding plastic sheeting over the subfloor, building out a shallow pan for the laundry machines to sit on or tiling the laundry floor under the machines.Another consideration when deciding on a laundry room location is the noise from the machine’s vibrations. Laundry machines that are located on the second floor should be fitted with vibration pads that dampen the noise that occurs when the machine is in motion.Although a few of our inspirational photos in the gallery are large rooms, a laundry room can be created in a small space or closet. With a little creativity and some planning, a useful, efficient laundry room can be yours.Here are 10 laundry room ideas that organize, add value and upgrade your space.Make the laundry room workspace bright and cheerful with paint. Paint is an easy, inexpensive upgrade. Choose a color theme that’s bright and uplifts your mood. Some good paint color options are vibrant citrus tones like lime green, yellow or orange. A crisp, bright white is another good option that brightens the room and the mood. Paint your walls or cabinets in the color of your choice.Counter space is vital for folding, placing your laundry basket and other items while you work. Create a custom counter look to your laundry room by adding a counter over your side by side washer and dryer.If you have the square footage, add an island to your laundry room to increase counter space.For a high end, custom-cabinet look to your laundry room, add kitchen cabinets around your washer and dryer. Choose inexpensive cabinets and upgrade them with contrasting, bright wall colors or wallpaper. Remove builder-grade hardware and replace with custom drawer pulls. A versatile and contemporary drawer pull style is the bar, which can serve as a towel or hanger rack.If you’re on a budget, visit a restaurant supply shop’s used section. Stainless work tables and shelving would be a good laundry room idea and alternative to built-in cabinets.If you don’t have enough space to keep your washer and dryer side by side, stack them vertically. This is a great way to work with smaller spaces while still having a functional laundry area.Another creative way to mount your washer and dryer is to mount them off the floor. Raising your washer and dryer make it easier on the back by eliminating the need to bend over to load and unload the washer and dryer. Create a storage area in the space below the washer and dryer. Some washer and dryer manufacturers offer the raised storage unit in the matching appliance finish.Wall cubicles, floating shelves, baskets and clothes bars are all good storage options in a laundry room.Be sure to add a dirty laundry sorting system to save time when doing laundry. A good rule of thumb is to have a minimum of three dirty laundry bins for white, light and colors or dark clothing. Asking everyone in the household to sort their own dirty laundry in the proper bin saves time.Laundry rooms often occupy dark or windowless spaces. Good lighting is of utmost importance. Adding under-cabinet lighting or a large, overhead fixture not only brightens and enlarges the space, good lighting helps you find spots and stains on laundry items to pre-treat before washing. Better yet, add a combination of lighting including canned ceiling lights, pendants and under cabinet lighting like the image above.Beautiful lighting fixtures are not only practical but also add to the design of a laundry room.A wall or cabinet mounted drop-down ironing board is a great way to hide clutter. Most designs not only hide the ironing board away, but have enough room to also store the iron itself.A wall-mounted drying rack is another good option for air drying delicates like lingerie or sweaters.Besides paint, give your laundry room a modern look by adding visual interest to the walls with pattern and texture. Two great ways to achieve this include:–Wallpaper. Choose a bold, modern pattern in a moisture resistant, vinyl paper that’s easy to wipe down–Backsplash. Add a high-end backsplash design to your laundry room. While some of the most beautiful backsplash tile options can be expensive, a smaller laundry room doesn’t require much tile at allIf you have limited space, make the laundry room a multi-use room. Some laundry room ideas for a multi-purpose space include:–A craft room–A mud room–A sports equipment storage room–A household cleaning supplies storage roomOne of the most successful laundry room ideas involve converting a hall, home office or guest room closet into a laundry room.Add plenty of shelving and be aware of clearances, so doors may close when the laundry room is not in use.Many of our laundry room ideas are easy to do. Take a look at your laundry area and see how you can upgrade yours to organize and add value to your home. What are your favorite ideas to try?

Conix Architects recently completed an office building for company Umicore, located in Hoboken, Belgium. The building is part of a large industrial park, lacking identity. The architects therefore tried to create a strategy that would lead to a new corporate identity, while integrating the structure within its environment. Here is more from the project developers: “The new office building is the eye-catcher, encapsulating and generating the company’s new corporate identity. It offers a place to stop on the main axis which runs through the entire site. By narrowing and shaping the street profile, the idea of an entry area is created, an element that was lacking. The office building is unrestrained in design in contrast to the monotonous and randomly selected surroundings. The design draws one’s attention, in an emotional response, counter to the existing rational background. By positioning the building at a slight angle, the axis of the central entry road is broken.” What is your stand on this office building design, considering the connection to its industrial environment?

We’re all keen on providing a healthy environment for ourselves in the privacy of our home, but once at a gym, the power is somehow stripped from you. Adding a personal insight into your every workout, Gymtrack keeps track of members workouts by using a “smart pin” that transforms the web of your gym’s machines into a virtual personal training wonderland. This new system organizes the gym experience by dramatically re-shaping what gyms can offer their customers in terms of tracking, motivation and feedback.
A bracelet worn by each gym member tracks their workout and suggests improvements. This high tech fitness solution for gyms encourages members to shape up by keeping them motivated and engaged. Gyms can provide automated workout tracking and feedback to all members by simply installing the Gymtrack on all their machines, weight stack, cardio machines or free weights and it can even be used when doing body weight exercises. The Gymtrack is standalone, it needs no smartphone to function but “using Gymtrack with a smartphone or app-enabled device allows users to receive auditory feedback in real-time. Gymtrack will guide members through their workout, motivate them, and make sure they don’t feel lost, confused, or intimidated in the gym ever again.”
Gymtrack is presented as the Future of Fitness and it can certainly become just that – the beginning of a fitness revolution. Traditional personal training can be supplemented with these patent pending sensor systems that easily install on any existing gym equipment. Challenging not only members to work consistently but also your personal trainers to re-shape their interaction and impact on members, Gymtrack changes the rules:  “Personal trainers from your gym can create personalized workout plans for your members and use the Gymtrack platform to track their progress, provide feedback, and update their plan to help them reach their goals. Clients can message personal trainers through Gymtrack’s app or website, rate exercises, workouts, and even personal trainers in order to make sure they end up with a workout plan that’s right for them.”
In addition to this, “Gymtrack even provides important metrics such as force, power, explosiveness, tempo, range of motion, and time under tension– allowing both members and personal trainers to gain a deeper insight into their workouts.” Since you can’t lie to a machine that monitors your pulse, force and determination, you can’t lie to yourself. Going beyond regular fitness tracking technology, Gymtrack creates gym communities and helps members reach new height in their fitness levels. Even if technology is one of the 10 must-have items that luxurious buyers want most, the Gymtrack will change the way your interaction with gym equipment changes the outcome. So a gym membership will be starting to look differently with the implementation of this new gym tracking system. It will be even more worth it to work out in a gym.
Fabulous homes we feature come equipped with different sporting facilities like basketball courts or tennis courts or even skateboarding half-pipes. But those who love gym equipment and feed on the energy exuded by like-minded people working out will be thrilled to be accompanied by virtual personal trainers that enhance their gym experience. The hi-tech fitness system suggests a higher flexibility in reaching goals and a better transparency leading to a higher level of commitment. Pre-ordering your Gymtrack means staying ahead of fitness goals. As a member, your gym will be the one motivating you like never before…

Contemporary bedrooms are all about a neutral color scheme that is accentuated by pops of color in an elegant fashion. These colorful additions can be often swapped out with ease to alter the appeal of the room and its color palette with changing trends and seasons. While blue is touted as the most popular hue in the bedroom irrespective of style and season, green is the ‘chosen one’ for those who want to bring a hint of natural goodness indoors. Relaxing, elegant, bright and refreshing, it is a pleasant hue that comes in diverse shades ranging from the brilliant jewel-toned emerald to more subtle and modest minty greens.

Here at our site, we have a lot of respect for interior designers and all of the hard work they put into their designed spaces. It takes a certain eye to be able to pull a room together and make it fabulous and functional, all at the same time.
With that being said, not everyone can afford to hire an interior designer to come into their home, guiding all their design decisions. Some of us actually want to be the one who makes our own design decisions, using our own individual style and preferences.
How can we get the inspiration to take our interiors from boring to beautiful— without the expense of a professional designer?
Let’s look at some tips to help you begin organizing and designing your rooms into a space that, until now, you thought only an interior designer could create. Follow these tips and you will begin to notice your friends sneaking a peek into your phones contact list, looking for the number of your interior designer. Whether you want your interiors to look like a luxury hotel or just jazz up your interiors, these tips will help. Shhhh… it’s our little secret that you did it all by yourself.

There is a reason for all the avid ‘Pinners’ on Pinterest — people crave an amazing home interior. As most of us have already discovered, decor websites can spark a flame of creativity that we never knew we had.
If you have not already begun to create inspiration boards for your homes decor, then begin now — this is the first step to creating the home you desire.
Go onto Pinterest to search for home styles that appeal to you, or go onto our site and use the “Collect This Idea” button to gather design images that excite you, or  simply grab some design magazines and cut out pictures that speak to you.
After hunting and gathering for creative images that inspire you, step back and look at all that you have collected — this should tell the story of your design style. You may be surprised at the style you crave to create.

Now that you have a good idea of a style that you hope to call yours, you need to choose a color scheme. This is the tough part. Color is so personal and creates moods within us that inspire. No matter what, choose the colors that call to you. Look at your inspiration boards — what colors are prominent in the rooms you saved?
We won’t tell you what colors to choose, but we will tell you to try for a mix of three colors or shades. One main color for walls, another color for larger accents such as couches and chairs, and then a third color that pops in smaller accessories such as flowers, pillows and knick knacks. Remember color is influenced by how much light you bring into your home. Consider using floor to ceiling windows to enhance your interiors to bring out color too!
Let’s say you choose a color combination of brown, teal and tangerine. A shade of brown would probably be the wall color, teal may be the color you choose for accent chairs or an accent wall, and tangerine could be the color you pull out in pillows and accessories. This formula of three colors works in any combination. Just remember, three is better than one or two, as a room done in one color is boring. Yes, you can have an all-white room but with three shades of white.

Equally as important to color, is texture — especially if you crave a single color scheme such as all-white or all-grey. A room at first glance can seem like a single color scheme, but if you look closely you will notice shades within the same color and plenty of texture via fabrics/textiles.
An all-white room may have linen draperies, a plush velvet chair, shiny silk cushions, rattan chairs and woven baskets, and a nubby cotton sofa with a faux fur blanket tossed on the side. All of these elements add texture and please the eye, creating a warm, rich environment. Design can describe the personality of the owner, so by using textures, patterns and varying colors can bring a dull room into sophisticated with ease.
Consider the textiles that suit your lifestyle. If you have kids and dogs, then you may not want a light cotton sofa, rather a darker leather or mohair sofa may suit your needs. If you crave luxury then consider high-end silk draperies and pillows.
Whatever your style, try to add plenty of texture by adding numerous textiles into your home.

This is a common mistake most homeowners make —too many small, spindly pieces in one room. A room with leggy chairs, leggy tables and lots of small knick knacks only serve to clutter the room and confuse the eye.
Instead try for a room that is well mixed. Have a large sofa, some skirted club chairs (so you can’t see the legs) and then one or two slender arm chairs with attractive carved legs (depending on space).
This is just one example, but it gives you the idea of mixing furniture styles and sizes so that the room looks balanced —not too bulky and not too spindly. Even if you are decorating a small apartment there are plenty of decorating ideas to try.
Most designers will recommend that even the smallest of rooms have one large statement piece, such as a large armoire or cabinet. A mixture of big and little is key to a successful design. This rule goes with accessories, too.

Designers love to use trays, decorative bowls and sometimes baskets, to arrange collections or loose items that need a home.
For a hint of glamour, try adding a glitzy gold tray to your coffee table, ottoman or side table. On top of the tray, place a pretty candle, a couple of books and a small bowl of colored stones. Little vistas such as this seem frivolous, but they are imperative to a layered, decorated aesthetic.
If you desire a more rustic approach, then try woven baskets in your home. Baskets are fabulous decorative tools that can hide a lot of clutter. Try to create these little niches throughout your home.
You will love how a tray can collect bathroom soaps and perfumes, arranging these everyday items into a piece of displayed art.

Go back and look over all your inspiration boards — what do you see? Do you see flowers or plants in almost every room? We bet you do.
It seems like a simple tip, but adding floral arrangements, live plants and natural items such as vases of shells or rocks, can really add that final touch to your interior design.
There are numerous easy-care plants that you can purchase for your home that will last years if properly fed and watered. Most designers will tell you to avoid fake floral arrangements. If flowers or plants are not what you desire, then try other natural elements such as twigs or feathers placed in a large urn.
Natural arrangements add the final touch to a room — the final touch that says, ‘ An interior designer has been here’.

If you can’t hire an interior designer, you can still have a home that looks like you did. All of these little tips and tricks work together to create a warm, well-designed home. Try adding texture, color, statement furniture and elements of nature to your home today.
If you are unsure of the final outcome or arrangements that you have made, then snap a photo. Pictures of a room will allow you to see the design from a different view point, helping to see if you went wrong somewhere along the way.  Remember, it’s your home and you are the one who has to live in it, so create a home that you love— a home that portrays who you are.

Behind the construction of the Hickey Residence stood the talented team of Glen Irani Architects. Part of a larger project developed by the architects, this residence strives to introduce a seamless connection between the front and rear gardens. This was obtained by designing a collection of rooms half hovering above the outdoor living area. This gives the impression of a larger garden space and hold the power to gather family and friends around the dinner table for unforgettable social encounters. Located in Venice, California, the Hickey Residence displays an interesting line, with opposing sides tucked back into the volumetric architecture. Overhangs and the curves of the roof help increase the amount of indirect natural light reaching the interiors. A paved driveway in the front leads to the metal garage door, integrated in the overall design. The 4,000 square foot residence rests the tired, but happy inhabitants and their guests in 4 bedrooms. The climate allows this architectural solution to be comfortable and feel naturally close to the environment. Who here thinks the outdoor living area was a great idea?

Contemporary bedrooms are all about a neutral color scheme that is accentuated by pops of color in an elegant fashion. These colorful additions can be often swapped out with ease to alter the appeal of the room and its color palette with changing trends and seasons. While blue is touted as the most popular hue in the bedroom irrespective of style and season, green is the ‘chosen one’ for those who want to bring a hint of natural goodness indoors. Relaxing, elegant, bright and refreshing, it is a pleasant hue that comes in diverse shades ranging from the brilliant jewel-toned emerald to more subtle and modest minty greens.
