If you ever wonder how interior designer will design their own place, you will find out a perfect example in today’s post. This extremely eclectic and elegant apartment located in London is the home of interior designer Danielle Moudaber. The apartment was designed, as she says, to ‘‘sooth her soul’’ and remind her of the endless blue of the Mediterranean as seen from a seaside terrace. Indeed, whilst the apartment evokes the openness and light of the Mediterranean, at the same time it is so rich in detail that is also like an enormous live-in artwork.
Located at Yangming National Park, Taiwan, this beautiful apartment has an amazing view of picturesque Mt. Shamao from its windows. To make advantage of this biggest asset, Archlin Studio come up with a design that connects the natural space outside with the internal space and maximize the amount of point of sights from the house to the windows and in return maximizing the amount of natural light permeating through the apartment. To maximize the open space, designer removed the solid walls in living area and bulit movable see-through bookcases between study area and kitchen. Similar strategies are implemented in the two bedrooms at the back of the apartment. Sliding timber veneer panels are used to substitute traditional solid doors between the two bedrooms to introduce flexibility in the configuration of the sleeping areas. The choose of natural color and material ensure the apartment fit comfortably in its tranquil surrounds. Really nice place to live and enjoy life.
Located in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine, this 21,500 square feet family house is the dreaming house for most of people. Designed by Yakusha Design, this large house is made from concrete and glass outside, which might sound cold and something we want to get rid of. However, its nature embracing interior makes you feel fresh and freedom. Lots of plants, beautiful garden which can be seen clearly through the glass window, lots of river stone decoration and its shaped stool and mat. Most surprisingly, it has several live trees inside the house. Besides all the nature elements, children’s area and the corridor is a special honor, because there are an interesting mix of materials and colors, lawn grasses and colorful squares. In all, much of this interior is built on contrasts, cozy and warm wood and glass, living plants and ceramic tiles. I would love to live there.
