THE WHOLE OBJECT
Once arts professor told me
“concentrate on the object as a whole.
If something looks off, edit.

Simple, right? Continue reading “2 STEPS AWAY FROM THE RIGHT COLOR CHOICE”
BEDROOM | JUNGLE
Life’s a beach.
Treat yourself every day and get yourself a decent vacation.
Bring the taste of it into your everyday life.
Some palm trees here and there, peacock throne and gorgeous classy lamps to tie it up. Cold light green tones look fab with dark deep tones.
Don’t be afraid to add some metals and pops of color.
It’s your jungle.
Keep it wild, just like you are. Continue reading “BEDROOM TALES. HUSH HUSH.”
PRIVATE DOODLE STATION.
Treat your little ones with a cozy office and awaken their creative spirits.
Having their own drawing corner may have a side effect of clear walls and other surfaces.
BUT WHAT ABOUT THY MAMMA?
I’ve been playing with this idea of kids toy housing/reading corner unit all weekend.
Honestly, have to admit, I’ve enjoyed it sooo much.
Putting myself into those little shoes took me back. Even so, I created a grown up unit version too. Guilty. Filled with books instead of toys. And most likely booze. Guilty again.
A nice reading/wine tasting corner for thy Mamma too.
Treat yourself, yeah?
Bottoms up and cover to cover, you little trouble makers!

SCENARIO BASED LIGHTING EXAMPLE.
*inspirations taken from my recent project.
The key for a balanced lighting project is scenario based thinking.
It must reflect your daily routine.
Where do you go. What do you do. What do you like.
So let’s have a look.
Eventually life gets to the point where you want all pink everything.
The most important thing is:
Colors do not need to be exactly the same or even alike.
And the secret to getting color scheme right every single time is:
distance yourself and look at the big picture.
If it looks fab – you’ve nailed it.
If not – just edit.
Mix and match different textures, patterns, raw materials and your favorite colors together.
Just be absolutely sure they
a l l
( a n d I c a n ‘ t s t r e s s t h i s e n o u g h )
a l l
look great together.
As you see it is a top views of previous living room. But better.
And not only because it has a dog in it.
So let’s play.
Scenario based lighting.
So maybe you read a lot. Or just want to do your evening meditations. It’s getting dark. You curl up on a coach with a fine glass of wine or cacao. Nobody judges. You turn the light music on. You need some light. Continue reading “Lighting. Part II. The very best.”
I am obsessed with lighting. It plays a huge part making the interior work.
The right scenario must be on your terms. First, let’s talk about the very worst of lighting.
Presenting with my very-worst-schemes.
As you see it is a basic central lighting top view. Even timeless Foscarini’s Greggs wouldn’t save you from disaster. If you haven’t heard of them click here.
Just sayin’ guys. It’s classic.
And what happens when we turn them on? Continue reading “Lighting. Part I. The very worst.”
Even it means that sunbathing cocktail drinking and dirty dancing till dawn days are over. Or coming to an end soon.
As we all know coming back from is always a bust. AND the holiday hangovers are terrible.
So why oh why ye shall not try to bring the palm shade home? Continue reading “Destination jungle.”
Well, you should.
Creating unique space by adding one of the following. Or all of them. Just be aware of the big picture. Be careful. But kinda brave. No. Be brave most of all. Have fun mixing and matching. Cheers.
- The old. I mean some classic pieces(Ultimate The Eames Lounge chair and Ottoman,1956. The iconic Egg chair by Arne Jacobsen, designed in 1958. And so on. You see where I’m heading to. Wink wink. Pricey. Timeless though.
IKEA has it’s own timeless pieces. The relaunched 1956 Lövet table, which they have re-engineered and renamed Lövbacken.)
Family relics work too. Dust it off, renovate if needed. The old granny’s chair or coffee table will be the true eye candy. Sweet memories included.
That kind of old.
Obviously. But there are some ground rules, or as we established, guidelines.
As I’ve already said, you can do anything with your space. Really. Sky is the limit.
As long as it fits. But the question is: does it?
If it doesn’t, there is a tiny possibility that you are an impulsive buyer(believe me, I do know how that one goes…). You have probably splurged on yet another oh so cool armchair or sooo comfy ultimate blue with red stripes and cherry on top bean bag.
I love analogies, so let’s try one here too.
Think of how you manage your wardrobe.
Some forever classic expensive basic pieces.
Some cutting edge reasonably priced bold statement pieces.
And most certainly some old goodies you are attached to, giving personality to all your wardrobe.
It’s up to what you do with the space you live in. As long as it feels right. Right?
Depending on personalities people differ from neat minimalists to extreme collectors. It’s all good and it’s not architect’s job to change that.
