“The Wish List”

“The Wish List” is a collaborative project between some of the best-known design names and up-and-coming designers. Ten design and architecture legends and ten young, talented designers faced a challenge of creating a longed-for object for those who normally fulfill creative dreams of others: Norman Forester, Zaha Hadid, Alex de Rijke, Paul Smith, Amanda Levete, John Pawson, Alison Brooks, Richard and Ab Rogers and Allen Jones. Interestingly the challenge was to create all objects, using one single material: American hardwood.  

To get know what was on the whist list of design and architecture legends, you need to visit fabulous installation at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London or check its short summary in The ArchitecturalReview.

But the project I looooove the most is “Paul’s Shed”by Nathalie de Leval for Sir Paul Smith. It’s a wooden hut designed as a place for relaxation. The structure is made from dark-coloured, thermo-treated American ash. It has a glazed wall and a rotating mechanism, so that one can take advantage of sun or shade at different times of day. As a result, the shade is in harmony with the rhythm of nature and can serve as a perfect place, where you can just switch off and relax. Simply amazing! 

Glass House

Have you ever dreamt about having home that is full of light ? Photographer Nick Olson and designer Lilah Horowitz manage to do build fabulous house made of windows for less then 500 dollars.

One day couple went for a walk through the family estate. The amazing view bathed in the setting sun, inspired them to create a place where the intensity of a light would change depending on the time of the day. And so they decided to make their dream come true. They quit their jobs and started to build their dream house made of windows. Once they collected all the needed materials (most of them they found, got from abandoned buildings, some they bought), they begun the construction process. They built the entire structure by themselves, with their own hands and hard work.  But the final effect was worth it. The glass house looks like from some kind of fairy tale.  And they say, that they like it the most at night, when you feel like you were sleeping almost under the stars and fireflies fly behind the windows.

Mim Design – minimalism with maximum impact

I loooove projects byMim Design. An amazing mix of modern but yet classic pieces. Fusion of light, clean line spaces with stronger, sometimes even colorful accents. Various textures, various materials - in their interiors everything is layered perfectly, giving a sense of space and coziness at the same time. 

Amazing minimalistic Scandinavian apartment

 I looove this Scandinavian apartment! Its incredible range of shades of gray. Its austerity and coziness at the same time. Mix of textures and fabrics. And wooden wall in the kitchen is something I’ll definitely consider when planning my renovation.

Cottage House Renovation

Recently I’ve been doing small renovation of my cottage house. A little bit of painting, rearranging and throwing away some unused stuff. The first room is already finished and this is how it looks like now.

Make up the bed

 I simple looove those sleeping arrangements by Atelje Alt. They all look so comfy and neatly.  I really can’t decide which one is my favourite

Eclectic Scandinavian Mix

There are so many things I looove about this fabulous apartment! It’s an amazing mix of old and new, rawness and coziness, muted and bold. On the one hand full of contradiction, yet harmonious somehow.  I like the white, shabby chic dining room with one mismatching, pink chair, that just pops out. And the living room… just mind blowing - wooden beams on the ceiling and on one of the walls,  set together with concrete fireplace.  Amazing dresser with antlers hanging above. Not to mention magnificent gray piano. Simply looooove it!!!
