Furniture that is not only fun, but also elegant

Although it is said that Chaotic Love playful collection of lighting and furniture designs by Swedish Ninja is referencing the work of 1980s Italian design group Memphis, I find them much more elegant and beautiful - have a look yourself:

“The kids grow so fast, their trousers are always too short showing their beautiful ankles and little socks,” says Maria Gustavsson of design studio Swedish Ninja, explaining the inspiration behind the My Socks sofa table.

I am fascinated with this interior

 But the only thing I succeeded to find about it is that this is a photo by William Abranowicz:

I think that this is a perfect mix of modern and classic elegance.
Does anyone know something more about it? I think that it is in Berlin and I am so curous to see the rest of the rooms!

Decoration is about details

An inspiring rug, a beautiful pillow, bright accent piece - each one of these is sure to make your room special. You just have to choose the proper one :)
No matter what style you prefer - sometimes it is possible to choose a decorative item just for its beauty and use it as an inspiration for the overall decor or colour scheme. I have some beautiful suggestions for you that may serve you as such an inspiration:Surya Coral Outdoor Pillow Surya Coral Outdoor Pillow

Another beautiful way to add colour to your room is with glass, but when glass is combined with light, then the effect is double:

Don't forget that  Colour is the perfect way to freshen up your interior!


Clever design solutions

As interior designer I value good design and clever functional solutions. Today I found the great work of London-based studio Quinn Architects and want to share with you some of their inspiring design solutions:

They really "deliver interesting and highly crafted pieces of work". How do you like them? 


Beautiful Fusion of Styles

I like it when modern designers do not just copy ancient traditions and design ideas, but transform them in a modern way and setting:

Great design! What do you think - agree? Check more examples of the fusion trend which is not new at all!


Designer lighting for your home

Lighting can transform any space - even without any other changes. Just one beautiful centerpiece can make your room interesting and inviting. And in the evening the magic of light adds its powerful influence - then this beautiful lighting source becomes more impressive.

One great way to create this magic is to use a lamp that combines the warmth of natural materials with charm of ancient crafts - like the popular collections of famous British designer Tom Dixon:

 - I like especially the white version, but one of my favourites is the Tom Dixon's best selling Copper Shade on the top photo and below:
Another great design idea is to use glass lighting - I like very much Niche Modern lighting company Crystalline Series:
