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 ]

Villa Mecklin by Huttunen Lipasti Pakkanen Architects

The place where Villa Mecklin lounges stands for serene atmosphere amidst the tree cluster and its welcoming stone terrace. Created by the Helsinki-based team Risto Huttunen,Santeri Lipasti and Pekka Pakkanen, this home design is perfectly suitable for a summer escape. Mainly self-built, this lodge is situated near the northern cape of Mustaluoto Island, where on its earstern side lays off a splendid boat marina. When coming from the harbour to the entry of the main building, you get surprised by the omnipresence of the trees. After sight-seeing the surroundings, you get to be dazzled by the breathtaking horizon witnessed from the wide terrace, accessed via a hatch in the decking. To have an ever more spectacular outline, a fireplace has been drilled in the centre of the terrace. When the hatch is not in place and the fire is not lit, the generous terrace can also be used as a [ Continue reading ]

How to Make a Garden Fountain Out of, Well, Anything You Want

You tried sweating it out in the sauna, you can’t let go in a yoga pose, and om isn’t exactly hitting home. And no wonder—you’re working too hard at relaxing. What you need is a place to sit quietly and contemplate the sounds of nature: birds chirping, breezes blowing, brooks babbling. What—no backyard brook? Not a problem. Just build yourself the next best thing, with a softly trickling garden fountain. The project is nothing to get stressed about. In a mere weekend, you can fountain-ize most any leftover garden ornament, turning it into an enduring monument to tranquillity. Revive a defunct birdbath, declare your own ode to a Grecian urn, or drill holes in a stack of rocks you found on-site, as This Old House technical editor Mark Powers did for a friend one hot afternoon. When the job is finished and your fountain runneth over, you’ll rinse the tension from your [ Continue reading ]

Make your small space look like a big one

Do you think that if you have a small place you can’t design it as good as a big one? That’s a wrong mentality! You can design it as beautiful as a big one or even better. What is the advantage of having a small house? You can find things easier, it will become a cozy place soon, you can live by yourself never wondering what would you do alone in such a big place. So, how can we decorate a small place? – Find that expandable furniture for your place. It will make it more spacious; – Fill it with pictures of your family, friends; – Paint the rooms in a bright color or white ( it will give the impression of a bigger space); – Baskets under the bed are a great place to stash extra stuff; – A bench at the foot of the bed creates plenty [ Continue reading ]

Is It A Stack of Books? -NO! It’s A Staircase

It’s truly amazing what some imagination and craftiness can do to a set of stairs! Pippa Branham, a bibliophile from England, painted her staircase to look like the spine of her and her husband’s 13 favorite books. She says that she was inspired by an image she saw on Pinterest. For all of us, Pippa shared some images of how she transformed the  wooden stairs into colorful “books” using brushes, tape, paint and, of course, time (6 weeks). The whole project cost the family less than $200, which was less expensive than carpeting the stairs. Pippa declared that  the most difficult part of the project was painting sets of letters sideways. Pippa is a young mother and to ensure the stairs were safe for kids (and not slippery from the paint), she mixed the paint with a small amount of kid’s play sand to make it grittier. If you are a [ Continue reading ]

A Simple House with Style

Christian Street House by James Russell Architect: “We are fortunate to live with a benign subtropical climate. Christian Street House in Clayfield, an inner north suburb of Brisbane, sits on the east side of a rolling hill, opening its face to the morning sun and bay breezes. It’s back is buried in the hill, protected from the harsh summer sun, storms and winter westerlies. High gables make a patio to street, a covered arrival and gathering place with barn doors to living behind. Cars participate without becoming a barrier between street and life within. There are many ways to move around this place. Journey from street can take you across patio, down outdoor stairs and around garden to meals, living and water. The boys can sneek in from street via a grungy service lane, they can come and go independently. Their rooms have a more public side to garden and [ Continue reading ]

Modern Bathrooms

The bathroom is the place where we can relax and put the things in order in our mind. For me, the bathroom should be a clean and luminous space which will calm me whenever I open the door. I always imagined myself having a shower/bath surrounded by plants and bright colors. I don’t know why, but I always wanted my bathroom to be in black and white, if possible more white. I will show you some pictures with bathrooms that I like and I want to know if you like them too, or what kind of bathrooms would you like? My choice, as I said before, is a clean, white with plants bathroom + a big mirror!!
