House in Inglewood by Alair Homes Chilliwack

  Description by Alair Homes Chilliwack This was a challenging project for very discerning clients. The home was originally owned by the client’s father, and she inherited it when he passed. Care was taken to preserve the history in the home while upgrading it for the current owners. This home exceeds current energy codes, and all mechanical and electrical systems have been completely replaced. The clients remained in the home for the duration of the reno, so it was completed in two phases. Phase 1 involved gutting the basement, removing all asbestos containing materials (flooring, plaster), and replacing all mechanical and electrical systems, new spray foam insulation, and complete new finishing. The clients lived upstairs while we did the basement, and in the basement while we did the main floor. They left on a vacation while we did the asbestos work. Phase 2 involved a rock retaining wall on the [ Continue reading ]

Gothic Cottage by Daniel Contelmo Architects

  Description by Daniel Contelmo Architects When the homeowners approached Daniel Contelmo Architects to design their new home, they knew they wanted something different. Daniel Contelmo sketched several options for them, but quickly realized that a modern style was not suitable. Inspired by the gatehouses of local estates, many of which were stone cottages, Daniel Contelmo settled on a gothic cottage design, seamlessly blending the two styles. The result was unique, an organic and whimsical home that perfectly reflected the clients’ wishes. The exterior is dominated by steeply pitched roofs and clover windows reminiscent of the carpenter gothic style, which was predominant in the area. The metal roof reflects the sky, lending an airy feeling that contrasts the stone at the base of the main entrance. Graceful arches soften the roofline and, to the right, a swooping fence lengthens the front elevation. The surrounding landscape influenced much of the design; [ Continue reading ]

Loft F5.04 by SMLXL Studio

Description by Boysplaynice Photography & Concept After a long search of an apartment offering both interesting and atypical elements, and located in central Prague, this proved to be an ideal choice. Time management was perfect, and the arrangement with the developer was that the apartment would be made over as shell and core, meeting only the most basic approval standards. The owners also addressed our studio ahead of time, providing us with enough time to think about the project in detail. As soon as the owners were handed the keys to the apartment, we were ready to begin with the changes. Upon our first visit of the apartment, we faced an unpleasant surprise – the windows. The industrial design was replaced with plastic windows, although the developer had committed to keeping the original design. Since this was a corner apartment and windows played a key role in the interior, the [ Continue reading ]

Guest Room Design

When you want to throw a party at your place, the first thing you think about is where would the guests sleep? So, you should sacrifice a room in your house and decorate it special for your guest. Think about how would you like a guest room to be, about what would you appreciate. First of all, a TV in the room shouldn’t miss, a little bit of home accessories (paints, chandeliers) Also, be sure the sheets on the bed are clean and nice. Surround the room with plants and fresh fruits, search a theme for the room and place a bed for two persons, or two beds for one person each.

Creative Kitchen Luster

When it comes to be creative I am the first one who raise the hand. I love creative people and when I go to a new home I hope I will see some creativity. There are some kitchen luster made from forks, glasses and a lot of other kitchen objects. I think you should be bold to use one, but it is something that I would love to see in everyone’s kitchen. I usually saw these type of lusters in restaurants, but I think they would look AMAZING in our house   I’ll show you some different designs to make an idea. Personally, I would choose the one made from jars or glasses. Are you courageous enough to place a luster like this in your kitchen?If yes, which one?

A boring deck or a cool outdoor kitchen?

Imgur user RogerBennett55 was getting no use out of the patio in his backyard, so a change had to be made. He decided that eating and drinking were a few of his favorite pastimes and so that became the genesis for building an outdoor kitchen of his own. Brilliant. After watching a few online tutorials and doing some research on how to design his own kitchen he began to build his dream. And only several weeks of work later he did just that. In his own words, this is exactly how he pulled it off… Building out the U frame. Bar and footrest attached. Starting the Durock installation  Supports for grill and framing for doors. And more Durock Drop in ice chest cutout and door framed Here’s to hoping the grill fits…fingers crossed. Durock nearly done…just need to cutout spot for the Big Green Egg grill in corner.  Grill fits!! Nearly–a little [ Continue reading ]

Nirvana Bathtub Design

This more-than-modern bathtub design was inspired by the intention of reproducing the nightsky into the small “universe” of your restroom. This very model is one of the winners of The Red Dot Award 2009. The following design was conceived by Bathroom Tomorrow, a Thai company from Bangkok. The “Nirvana” Bathtub succeeds in merging the state-of-the-art technology only to offer you a memorable bathing experience. Because of its bizzare shape, this bathtub only uses 40 % of the water that an average bathtub does, aspect that makes it sustainable too. LEDs all over the surface establish the wonderful effect from the pictures. An i-Touch system controlls the lights that the company promotes. What else could be said about this allurign bathtub ?!
