A Wrap-Around Wood Accent With Hidden Lighting Is An Idea For Adding A Warm Glow To Any Bedroom

A Wrap-Around Wood Accent With Hidden Lighting Is An Idea For Adding A Warm Glow To Any Bedroom

When architecture firm REM’A and collaborator André Novais were designing a new house in Portugal, they included a bedroom with a wrap-around wood accent.

The wood accent adds a natural element to the bedroom and creates a headboard for the bed. Between the cabinets to the right of the bed there’s hidden lighting, adding a soft glow to the room and highlighting the displayed objects on the shelf.

Minimalist pendant lights hang on either side of the bed, while above it, metallic sculptures add a glamorous touch.

A Comfortable Lounge With Open Shelving Surrounds A Fireplace In This Home

A Comfortable Lounge With Open Shelving Surrounds A Fireplace In This Home

Architecture and interior design firm Ruetemple, have transformed the attic of a house in Moscow, Russia, and made it into a comfortable lounge for relaxing.

Previously used as a place for storing various old items, the architects removed all of the original partition walls and old ceiling, and opened up the space, exposing the home’s framing and letting the natural light filter through.

This modern attic has a lounge that wraps around a fireplace, and open wood shelving and ceiling joists with LED lighting. #Lounge #Fireplace #LivingRoom #Shelving #InteriorDesign

The architects chose a simple palette of natural materials and colors, LED lighting, and greenery. Two counters were added to the space, one that acts as a bar, and the other as a large desk.

The main relaxation area of the space is the lounge that wraps around the fireplace on all sides. Wide comfortable seats allow people to gather or sleep.

On the sides of the lounge are open wood shelves that act as a place to store books and small decor items.

The rear wall of the lounge is used for stacking firewood.

At night, the fireplace and candles in jars on the shelves create a soft warm glow, adding to the cozy environment.

This House Was Built Into A Polish Hillside

This House Was Built Into A Polish Hillside

Architect Przemek Olczyk of Mobius Architekci, has designed a modern house that’s nestled into the hillside in Warmia, a historical region in northern Poland.

The design of the house represents the owners desire to have a home that would be secluded, integrate with the surrounding landscape, and create a closeness to nature. The simplified form of the roof, with its 45 degree slope, refers to traditional rural buildings found throughout Poland.

A Glass Enclosed Wet Room Is A Bathroom Design Idea Worth Considering

SDH Studio Architecture + Design recently completed a new house in Bal Harbour, Florida, and as part of the interior, they created a large master bathroom suite.

The wet room is home to both the shower and the freestanding bathtub, allowing the main area of the bathroom to be kept dry. The glass walls allow the natural light from the horizontal windows to filter through to the remainder of the room, keeping it bright and feeling open.

This House Addition Attempts To Follow The Roof Line Of The Original Brick House

This House Addition Attempts To Follow The Roof Line Of The Original Brick House

Architecture firm Atelier Van Wengerden, has transformed a dark and compartmental house in the Netherlands, and enlarged it with an open floor plan, a view to the garden, and a section that somewhat continues the slope of the original roof.

Originally built in 1932, the goal of the renovation was to to maintain the overall shape and integrity of the original structure, while also creating an open floor plan that directs views to the garden.

The new extension was realized in splayed concrete, allowing it to look and feel like a natural continuation of the vernacular roof, while the absence of details helps to strengthens the shape.

Inside, the internal partitions were removed, making the once small and compartmental rooms, into a large open-plan expanse for the kitchen, dining room, and living room.

Concrete floors have been added throughout, while a hanging black fireplace provides contrast to the bright white interior, and a new staircase acts as the backbone of the house, connecting the first floor and attic to the ground level and garden.
