Malachite pattern and color is also a smart choice if you love that luxurious look in the bedroom while eclectic bedrooms drenched in green goodness steal the show with sheer audacity and flair.

ONG&ONG Pte Ltd. completed the design and development of 65BTP-House, a private residence with a luminous contemporary character in Singapore. The project is surrounded by a vast garden that converges at a colossal pre-war rain tree of such magnificence that its presence is ingrained within the very architecture of the house itself. Throughout this home, there are numerous encounters with nature whilst still being very much indoors. An artistic vibe...
The terms ‘contemporary’ and ‘modern’ are often used interchangeably when describing design. It’s a common faux pas and one of which this writer is certainly guilty. In design lexicon the two words have contrasting and quite distinct meanings. Describing their difference at a somewhat rudimentary level: contemporary makes reference to the present-day – that which is current and of the time – whereas modern alludes to the past, specifically that of Modernism (post the First World War) and mid-20th century modern design and architecture.
Have you ever seen such a various, yet tasteful display of colors? Welcome to an apartment that was designed in a way that bends the common design rules. This lovely modern penthouse found on Skeppsholmen has a total surface of 125 square meters and features a charming fireplace and a generous terrace to the south, which offers stunning views of Stockholm and its rooftops.

There’s nothing quite like an old weathered wooden bench to add some character to almost any bathroom, even if the rest of the room isn’t exactly rustic at all. The State of Things shows a semi-rustic style in this farmhouse bathroom, which obviously works quite well, followed by this more modern and minimalist bathroom featured on Atelierul Decor.
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.
Located in Zapopan, Mexico, Seth Navarrete House is a brilliant example of architectural minimalism. Designed by Agraz Arquitectos, the residence distinguishes itself by its unique geometric layout. Home of a young couple, it was completed with a short budget and on a 200 square meter terrain. From the outside, the inhabitable space might look a little bit tight, but once inside one explores the true spatial quality of the dwelling.
Thinking of giving your kitchen a refined and refreshing makeover as you head into summer and fall? Few colors out there bring that perfect balance between sophistication and eye-catching elegance like gray and yellow. A combination that is quickly catching on across the globe largely because of the new-found love for gray in the last few years, it is still a novelty when it comes to the contemporary kitchen. While gorgeous gray and yellow bedrooms and stylish living rooms with this classy color duo are far easier to find, kitchens still seem to be largely stuck in the ‘white along with bright color’ mode.
You’re pretty lucky if you have a large enough window in your bathroom that could use a seating area right beneath it. A bathroom reno featured on Beneath My Heart uses an upholstered loveseat bench with added accent pillows for the window area. How about a built-in? This vanity featured on Home Bunch has a bench area near the window, while this other example (also from Home Bunch) creates a window seat out of a bathroom storage unit. You could also try a bathroom storage unit on a much larger scale with a bench as well, like the third option below from BHG. Built-ins are great, but they’re not for everyone. You could try a simple wicker bench with an elegant cushion to place by your bathroom window, like the one below featured on House of Turquoise.
