 You Won’t Believe How Cool Corona Kitchen’s 3D Ad Looks

Kitchen, Corona Kitchen Ad 3 You Won’t Believe How Cool Corona Kitchen’s 3D Ad Looks Kitchen Kitchen Print Ad Concept: Kitchen, Corona Kitchen Ad 2 You Won’t Believe How Cool Corona Kitchen’s 3D Ad Looks Kitchen Kitchen Concept Print Ad: Kitchen, Corona Kitchen Ad 1 You Won’t Believe How Cool Corona Kitchen’s 3D Ad Looks Kitchen Print Ad Kitchen Concept:
Creating a successful newspaper ad is no easy task. Since the majority of the print is in stark black and white, all of the content seems to blend together. It takes an extremely creative approach to get one product to stand out from all the rest. But Columbian creative director, Felipe Salazar, made it happen in this unusual ad for Corona Kitchen.Rather than trying to draw consumers in with slogans and images, Salazar decided to play with the shape of the ad itself by creating an optical illusion. With just a glance, readers will see that something about this ad is outside of the ordinary. Diagonal lines skew the text amid the otherwise rigidly-columned page. However, it requires a closer look to really understand what’s going on.Upon closer inspection, it becomes clear that Salazar purposefully arranged the typography of the ad to create a 3D kitchen. The print clearly forms upper and lower cabinetry, a stove with accompanying cooking hood, and built-in dishwasher. Unsurprisingly, this clever concept was wildly successful. Corona Kitchen is currently enjoying the influx of business that Salazar had hoped for.What do you think of this ad? Would it inspire you to go to Corona Kitchen for your remodeling needs? Or, is it just something fun to look at while reading your paper in the morning?

Round bathtubs are often used to accentuate clean, crisp powder rooms. And when it’s a room with a view, a simple form is the preferred tub of choice, especially when the focus is on the scene on the other side of the glass windows. Bathrooms with round tubs often feature round sinks. Here’s one more modern powder room with a view. Round tubs are often used to mirror other round forms in the powder room, such as the skylight in the all-white bathroom below. Curved built-in wall shelving provides another focal point in this space, especially since it’s filled with coral and other natural wonders.

As we alluded to earlier, green and white is a smart combination that works well in a modern bedroom and balances energetic overtones with a serene backdrop. The amount of green you use here depends on the size of the room and the amount of natural light that floods into your bedroom. Smaller bedrooms with too much green might seem both overwhelming and visually cluttered.

The best modular shelving systems will encourage individual expression and personal style. An investment in both design and practicality, they are something that we choose to live with (design is arguably always a choice). Famed industrial designer Dieter Rams once remarked: “I am convinced that a well-thought-out design is decisive to the quality of a product. A poorly-designed product is not only uglier than a well-designed one but it is of less value and use. Worst of all it might be intrusive.” This quote, from a speech on ‘Design by Vitsœ’ presented by Rams in New York, 1976, remains pertinent today.

Located in a village near Prague in the Czech Republic, this luxurious five-bedroom family home is not only elegant and welcoming, but also eye-candy for tech-savy folk. Latest environmental design technologies were implemented by Jestico + Whiles to imagine and build the perfect family home for their clients. The amazing private luxury home known as Villa Pruhonice opens to the surroundings with a transparent south-facing facade shielded from direct exposure by balcony overhangs on the first floor and a cantilevered roof shading the private spaces upstairs. Cutting-edge intelligent home technologies and a showcase of  the owner’s impressive collection of cars make this custom home a fairy-tale piece of land built to exact specifications.
Designed to merge indoor and outdoor living, the private luxury villa occupies 560 square meters. Ales Jungmann‘s photo lenses show us glimpses of this luxury family home. We see that the facade is decorated with light grey stucco and cement-based panels, while the interiors present a soothing mix of materials like marble, leather and timber. Awarded a high-level ‘A class’ European Energy rating, the luxury family home ” incorporates extensive smart features and uses the very latest technologies to allow the owners to control lighting, security and audio visual elements from their iPhones and iPads. Automatically optimized temperature control uses live data from the house’s weather station to provide maximum energy efficiency. ”
According to the architects: “The entrance to the villa is through a wide glass doorway, with recessed, sumptuous leather seating and generous storage spaces. A direct view through the depth of the villa reveals the landscaped garden beyond, blurring the connection between indoor and outdoor spaces. As one enters the living room, a series of open-plan living spaces reveal the owner’s African artwork and are connected to a recessed, polished-lacquer finished library with a large fireplace. The kitchen and dining spaces are located next to the living room and designed to be a warm heart to the family home whilst providing the house with a contemporary feel. The hi-tech kitchen uses button-less technology and carbonated water runs directly from the kitchen tap.
One of the home’s show-stopping features is a natural oak staircase that connects the three levels of the house and appears to float in the naturally-lit triple-height space. Downstairs a gym and spa (featuring a state-of-art-sauna and Jacuzzi set in marble) offer beautiful views of the landscaped garden through large windows. Upstairs, bedroom and bathroom spaces look on to the south-facing garden and private terrace that features subtle LED lighting cleverly integrated within the rain-drip detail along the edge of the roof.”

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.

There are so many modern ways to reduce your energy bill. Image Source: Photo Klik
Rich or poor, we could all use a little frugality in our lives. After all, who wants to waste money on electricity bills when there are far more fun ways to spend it? Remember your grandmother? — the one who insisted on wearing a sweater instead of putting on the heat, well she was a smart lady and we can learn a few things about the way our frugal ancestors lived.
With today’s modern amenities and energy saving appliances, there really is no excuse to be an energy-hog. Conserving energy is better for our pocket books and our planet.  Let’s look at 10 ways to save money on your electricity bill— things that you can implement today and possibly see results as soon as the next bill arrives.
By now you already know that you need to seal your home with caulking and weatherstripping, so we are not going to beat that idea into you any more, but read through these insightful tips to see what else you can do to save some green (in our pocketbooks and on our planet).

Increase your comfort levels and save money by making your home smart. There are so many ways to convert your home into a smart, energy-efficient , well-oiled machine just by embracing some modern technologies.
Programmable thermostats are a great first step that can make your home more energy savvy. Modern thermostats, such as this one by Nest, learn your families temperature habits and begin to mimic them, turning off the heat/air when you are not home or turning it up during the hottest/coldest times of day when climate control is a must.  The Environmental  Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that the average family can save $180 per year just by installing a properly programmed thermostat.
You can make your whole home “smart” by using one of the numerous whole home automation kits that are currently on the market.  These automation systems allow you to control your lighting, temperatures, alarm and even window coverings from your phone. What a great modern convenience that will save big on your electricity bills! Invest in modern technology and make your home an energy genius.

Your homes are often too stuffy due to poor air circulation. Ceiling fans allow air to be circulated more efficiently, saving you a lot of money in costly air conditioning.  You can actually turn your air conditioning a few degrees warmer when a ceiling fan is pushing cool air down onto you—adding up to a lot of savings by the end of a hot summer.
While a ceiling fan doesn’t really have a drastic effect on the actual temperature of the house, it does make you feel cooler when you are sitting or sleeping under one. Why? Because the air flow on your skin is evaporating sweat and making you feel cooler.
A ceiling fan can even help lower energy costs into the winter months. Simply look for the reverse switch near the top of your fan unit, making the fan blades rotate in the opposite direction, thereby pushing the hot air that is trapped up near the ceiling down to you and your living space.

By now everyone is aware of this fact: Switching out your lightbulbs to the amazingly efficient LED’s is just plain smart.  At first these new LED’s were a decorators nightmare with their ugly bright coils that ruin the look of your high-end lamps and add a harsh glare, making the room anything but inviting.
However, the appearance of this technology has improved over time— there are a lot of options available that look like real lightbulbs (hiding the coils inside) and they emit attractive shades of light.
Considering the fact that the average household uses 11% of its energy budget on lighting—it is definitely time to switch to modern LED’s  that can reduce lighting energy use by 50% to 75 %, according to InterNACHI. Get a warmly lit room and save money with modern LED bulbs—it’s the best of both!

Here is a little known fact: Even when your appliances are not in use, they are still sucking power if they are plugged in.  Look around your home, how many appliances are currently plugged in that are not in use? Your computer? Your toaster? Your lamps? Your televisions?
According to the US Department of Energy these appliances are adding 10% to 15% to your annual energy bill. Unplugging these unused items can add up to a yearly savings of up to 220$.
Here is the problem: it would be a major pain to go around unplugging devices on a daily basis.
You could decide to simply unplug the devices that you rarely use or you could invest in a few power strips which allow you to turn off multiple devices with the click of one switch.  Either way, unplugging is a smart energy-saving tip that everyone should consider.

This step is a bit more time-consuming and costly but let’s read about it anyway—after all,  the initial investment is worth it when you live in a busy household that uses a lot of hot water, and it’s better than yelling at your kids every five seconds to, “Hurry up and get out of the shower, already!”
Tankless water heaters provide hot water on an as-needed basis; They are not using up a lot of wasted energy by constantly heating a full tank of stored water. Tankless water heaters only heat the water when it is turned on. According to Energy.gov, an energy star-rated tankless water heater can save the average household around $100 per year.
While these tankless units are more costly than their less efficient counterparts, they typically last longer (typical lifespan of 20 years), making the investment more worthwhile. If you don’t want to spend the extra money on a new water heater, then consider simply turning down the thermostat by a few degrees on your current water heater—it’s better than doing nothing, and every little bit helps in the long run.

Anybody can do this and it doesn’t cost you a dime to implement. Your homes can cool down by 10 to 15 degrees at night by simply opening up your windows and letting the fresh air in!  Add to this a ceiling fan and you may actually be a tad chilly even in mid-July.
During daylight hours, the bright, glaring midday sun can heat up our homes drastically, causing us to crank the Air conditioning (A/C) unit to high. Instead, try installing blackout curtain panels to your windows or blackout shades. By closing these window treatments when the sun is high, you block out the harsh, hot rays and cool your home dramatically—without the A/C.
This takes us back to the modern conveniences of smart home automation which would allow us to control our window panels/blinds with the touch of a button—even when we are not home. Now that is efficiency at its best!
Automated blinds allow you to easily control your window shades. Image Source: Control 4
While solar panels are not something we can implement easily, they are becoming more popular for homeowners who prefer to go green.
Solar panel systems can be costly with some units running upwards of $10,000, but most States have Federal credit that can alleviate this cost drastically. You can research tax incentives by State.  Here is the amazing news—Forbes cites that solar panels are equivalent to planting 88 trees per year, drastically reducing your carbon footprint AND saving an average of 84$ per month on your electricity bills. That sounds like a win-win— for you and for the environment.
On top of the initial price of these units, you also have to incur the cost of hiring a professional to install it, making your upfront costs pretty drastic. This is why there are a lot of people leasing or financing solar panels systems— low interest rates and the increase in value of your home make this something worthy of contemplation.
Solar panels can save you immensely on your electricity bills. Image Source: Kipnisarch
Are your appliances old and outdated? Do you still have that washer and dryer set you got 13 years ago when you were first married? These old but trusty appliances are energy hogs and are costing you a lot!
In the United States, the purchase of Energy Star appliances is on the rise. Want to know exactly how much money you can save by replacing your refrigerator or any other big appliance with an Energy Star one? Click here for this handy calculator that tells you just exactly how much money you are wasting each month.
Upgrading to Energy Star appliances also comes with great rebates that reduce the upfront cost by as much as $100 per appliance.  With so many Energy Star appliances flooding the market, it may be hard to find one that isn’t  energy efficient in the near future, forcing us all to get a bit more green. Research your local energy savings programs to see what is offered—upgrading to more efficient appliances can really save you money!

Furnace filters can be expensive. With most disposable models costing up to $20 and needing to be changed every 3 months. This makes some of us neglect changing our filters on a timely basis and extending their use up to 6 months, but this is a costly mistake.
The use of old, dirty filters causes our heating and ventilating systems to run less efficiently, causing strain on the system and costing us more money.  A strained ventilation system equals a shorter life span, and it would definitely be more expensive to cause an un-timely death of our home heating systems than to just go out and buy a new filter every three months.
You can also purchase re-usable furnace filters that can be taken out for cleaning and then popped back in place. These filters cost a bit more upfront, but are worth considering if the idea of buying a new one every three months seems too much. Replace your dirty furnace filters today and breathe fresh air into your home.

Brrrr! No one wants to take a cold shower, so we will not recommend that—even though it would save you a lot in hot water heating costs.
However, your clothes on the other hand would be happy to be washed in cold water, in fact, they would probably last longer if you did.  With the availability of detergents that are meant for cold water washing, most clothes can be properly cleaned in cold water, unless they are really soiled.
The absolute ultimate way to save on your monthly electricity bills would be to wash most of your clothes on the cold cycle in an Energy Star washer, so give your high electricity bill the cold shoulder by washing in cold water whenever possible—your clothes and your wallet will thank you.
Set your washer on the cold cycle to save money. Image Source: By Design-Studio
Frugality can be fun—especially when money that would otherwise be wasted on electricity bills can be used for the finer things in life. There are so many ways to reduce your electricity bills— using smart technology; changing lightbulbs to LED’s; installing ceiling fans; unplugging unused devices; shutting our curtains during day/opening windows at night; replacing dirty furnace filters; upgrading to Energy Star appliances; using solar power; using more cold water; and installing a tankless water heater and the list goes on….
Start investing in your future (and the planet)  by saving money and reducing your carbon footprint with these easy to implement energy-saving tasks. When the next electricity bill arrives, you will be glad you did.
What do you do to save money on your electricity bills?

If you believe that green does not work in a trendy and minimal contemporary bedroom, then think again! A green accent wall is easy to shape and it brings that much needed warmth to an otherwise cool and mundane interior. Just repeat the color in the room using vivacious bedding, accessories, nightstands or even a couple of lovely vases and you have an inviting bedroom that is both energetic and relaxing. Those who feel that an accent wall in green or décor are not your thing can still add the color by placing a couple of potted plants to fill up those empty corners. It is an easy, eco-friendly and healthy choice to turn to that will instantly alter the mood in the bedroom.

Green in the girls’ bedroom coupled with pink works surprisingly well and it elegantly complements other colors such as brown and orange as well. Working with more than 3 or 4 bright colors in a room requires great care, perfect planning and a hint of ingenuity that lets each hue standout even while blending with the overall look. While it does sound like a risky proposition, get it right and you will have a playful kids’ room that is a visual treat.

Designed as a comfortable retreat from stressful daily life, the Calistoga Residence is an old residential building redesigned by Strening Architects and made to fit the needs and wishes of a Washington DC couple who wanted to relocate. This 25 acre property is located in Calistoga, California, a delightful place with wonderful weather. Californian studio Strening Architects revamped the original construction – described by them as a “poorly conceived series of stucco boxes with no relationship to the outdoor spaces, or the distant vistas” -and offered their clients the possibility of enjoying distant mountain views and the serenity of the surrounding nature.
A series of large windows, the outdoor living, dining and entertaining areas and the poolside terrace encourage the couple to spend more time outdoors: “Our design response was to create two distinct outdoor ‘loggias’ on the front and back of the house to take advantage of wine country indoor/outdoor living, and to completely re-imagine the front of the house to allow the spectacular view of the Napa Valley to become part of their living experience. The simple palette of materials, stone, stucco, wood and steel are used in a way to bring some refined elegance to the property; reflecting the sophisticated vision of the clients“, declared the architects.

The bathroom is perhaps the one room that doesn’t allow you to do very much in terms of furniture. With so much space taken up by the shower, the tub, the vanity, and the toilet, it can be a challenge to figure out how to bring in a little more style, even with the smallest pieces of furniture like shelves and benches — especially if you’re stuck with a really small bathroom! Lucky for you, there are lots of benches and stools out there that are versatile enough to fit any bathroom, small or large.

In every home, the demand for more storage, easier organization, and more beautiful solutions for each are a must for every homeowner. Hidden storage is a rare find in each of our homes, and today I sit down with Closet Factory, to find out answers to many of your storage dilemmas. From the the kid’s rooms to the garage and laundry room, every room has beautiful storage solutions, and Closet Factory shows you how.
1.)   FRESHOME: The number one complaint about most homeowners is that they don’t have enough storage space. What is your advice for those trying to find hidden space throughout their home?
CLOSET FACTORY: Maximize the space of your home as best as possible. Most people do not realize that from the floor to the ceiling can be potential storage space. With the right built-in or custom cabinetry with compartments for smaller items will keep things organized.
2.)   FRESHOME: Many small home and apartment owners want to find clever storage space in their bathrooms, especially when they share it with other people! What storage ideas do you suggest?
CLOSET FACTORY: When sharing a space the best practice is to section off different areas for both parties. These sections could be shelving, drawers or even closet space. Then go a step further by adding storage accessories like drawer sections, pull out bins, and even adding additional shelving or double hanging racks to maximize the space.
3.)   FRESHOME: Closet Factory has a wide array of organization options for the pantry, but many homeowners think they have to spend a fortune for custom organization, is this true? What kitchen ideas are good for the budget conscious?
CLOSET FACTORY: For the budget conscious the best way is to invest in clear storage bins, that you can find at any mass merchant, to sort pantry items. Use a label maker to keep things organized so you know what is in each container. Try to section the contents of the kitchen pantry by dividing them by type. Keep them organized by grouping a section for spices, dry goods, seasonings, and storage items like tubbleware, sandwich bags and aluminum foil. You can find pretty inexpensive mini baskets to fit inside drawers instead of custom drawer dividers.
4.)   FRESHOME: For homeowners that want a higher end, and personalized custom closet, what tips do you suggest for matching their lifestyle to their storage needs?
CLOSET FACTORY: Closets have evolved over the years. They are no longer a single hanging rod with a shelf on top. Now you can customize the look of your closet to reflect the rest of the living space in the home. If you love contemporary lines you may go with a sleek modern closet design. If you are more luxurious and ornate in your interiors then there are a number of custom moldings and appliqués that can be applied, not to mention all the color combinations! High end closets should look like a built in piece of furniture in the home. Not only will it look beautiful but will actually bring up the homes value.
When working with a professional Closet Factory designer, they will take an inventory of the contents of your closet. Say if you have dozens or even hundreds of shoes, this storage need will be accommodated with shoe shelving or drawers. If you have lots of hats then custom racks, and hooks can be added to the space. Perhaps you have a lot of laundry sections such as dry cleaning, darks, lights, delicates, etc. We can accommodate your needs by having pull out bins in the closet itself or even transforming a laundry space.
Most master closets are essentially dressing rooms. They have everything you need inside from custom lighting to even a seating area. Some closets even have a flat screen or built in charging stations for phones and small mobile devices.
The great thing about Closet Factory is that we build around each customer and their needs.
5.)   FRESHOME: Kids storage of toys and clothes is always a challenge in every home. How does Closet Factory help us organize, but also make it kid-friendly to encourage kids to organize themselves?
CLOSET FACTORY: “The best way to keep your children’s stuff organized is to teach them a daily routine as early as possible. Every day they should make the bed, put laundry in a hamper, clean clothes in the drawers, books on the bookshelf and toys in the toy bin. Keep it simple and be consistent,” writes Debbie Lillard, professional organizer, author and guest blogger for Closet Factory’s Expert Tips Blog on our website.
The key to maintaining a daily clean up routine for your child is having the right organizational systems in place. What I mean by this is that it’s a necessity to have a proper storage unit for your kids to put their stuff into, therefore creating a “home” for everything. One of the best kid storage solutions is to have a built-in wall unit that incorporates book shelves, toy storage, possibly some drawers, a bench or window seat and maybe even the inclusion of a desk to help promote good study habits while you’re at it.
Safety is one advantage to having a built-in organization system as opposed too a freestanding unit. Built-ins are anchored into the wall and supported by the floor. This allows the built-in shelving to go taller than freestanding bookshelves because it is not dependent on the weight of the items in the shelving unit to help keep the unit upright and weighted in place. Building the shelving and cabinets six, seven or even eight feet tall allows maximum storage and these days everyone needs all the storage they can get.
Another advantage is the adjustable feature of our shelving and storage units. This allows the organization system to be optimized for all types of items including toys, games and books. Every inch and a quarter the shelves can be adjusted. Low shelves are best used for your kid’s everyday items that they access themselves and are responsible for putting back when done. Higher up shelves and cabinets can be used for decorative stuff or storage you prefer your kids not get into.
Having the right structural foundation for an excellent storage system along with Debbie’s daily routine tip almost certainly guarantees success with a little follow up from you. Closet Factory offers a full selection of durable materials and colors so your kid’s bedroom won’t be compromising style by going with a built-in.
No space in your child’s room for a wall unit? Consider a closet organizer. It is very common to have toy storage and shelves tucked out of sight and in the closet. As your child grows features like shelving, bins and baskets can be traded out for rods!
6.)   FRESHOME: In many homes the laundry room or mudroom is an area that has hidden storage possibilities, but tends to get underutilized. What are some organization and storage solutions to help us make the dreaded task of laundry, easier?
CLOSET FACTORY: The sky is the limit to our laundry and mudroom offerings. However my top choices are:
7.)   FRESHOME: Many homeowners have too much ‘stuff’! What are your suggestions for helping them declutter and purge before they try to organize?
CLOSET FACTORY: Well, you have to take an inventory of the contents that need storage space. You may find tons magazines, clothes you don’t wear anymore…basically clutter!  You have to 1) divide what is trash, 2) should be kept or 3) can be donated (sometime sold).
8.)   FRESHOME: Here at our site we have showcased some gorgeous walk-in closets! What do you think of the our site website?
CLOSET FACTORY: our site is a great site that showcases beautiful homes and design concepts. I use this site to see what’s going on in the industry and often tweet and post the comments to my Facebook and other social media…
