The beautiful dandelion example below, to me, speaks something about me and my life. It is more than a nice looking picture; and this is what to aim for within this trend, which will be a popular one for 2014.
The bedroom; one of the most sacred rooms of the house and one of the rooms where we spend the most time (even if it's to merely sleep). It can also be one of the few room where you can design and decorate it to meet your particular tastes, and not have to worry what Tom, Dick and Harry thinks, as they'll never see it. For couples, there needs to be a balance, a juggling act, sacrificing personal extremes and coming to an agreement on a design that works for both.
Subtle geometric influences bring this matte black kitchen to life. The standing white volume stands as a beacon of light, and offers a cool vertical garden and a few small regular containers to provide on-demand herbs for cooking.
While there certainly was a time when the home kitchen was seen as the domain of women, that's far from the case today. From self-sufficient bachelors to egalitarian couples to wannabe celebrity chefs, more men than ever are cooking for themselves and for their loved ones. Of course, not many of these men want their kitchens covered in pictures of kittens in chef's hats or even the bright, spastic yellows or quaint ginghams of "country chic" and designers are catching on. These modern kitchens are sleek and ready for any style-conscious man to get to work.
While the idea of attic living sounds fabulous, ensure that you are ready for the transition from the main floor. While many people enjoy their master bedroom at the top of the house for the serenity, many don't enjoy the climb up the stairs. If you have small children, you may not want to be far removed on another floor. While if you have teenagers and a large family, the attic may be exactly what you need! Assess your family lifestyle and the layout of your attic in relation to other parts of the home to decide if a master bedroom attic will fit.
A glowing white kitchen can feel a bit too sterile so U6 Studio has brought in some light colored wood to warm things up in this open kitchen design. Creative overhead lighting in this kitchen from Delta Tracing gives the room a very mod feel. Not all bachelor's have space for a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, so this sleek design makes efficient and beautiful use of every square inch.
Whether you are a gourmet chef or just like to have a comfortable and stylish place to eat leftovers, the design of a home's kitchen is of the utmost important. The rooms featured in this post are not just stylish, but each celebrates its own version of simplicity with clean lines, luxurious textures and cool, neutral colors.
A separate feature holds the hardware and doubles as the perfect place to set a book or glass of wine – very usable, and a pleasure to look at. An ovoid tub is the crown jewel of any minimalistic bathroom. This design features a subtle faucet and overflow so the comforting shape can take center stage.
The first kitchen uses cool beige tones and recessed lighting to create a sense of calm. This kitchen really brightens things up with open cabinets of sunny yellow for a distinctly modern vibe. The reddish orange accents in this kitchen, and the creative sunken dining table, give the kitchen a really retro feel. Another neutral option lets the practical elements of the kitchen itself all but disappear, highlighting beautiful views and open windows.
If you have a small closet, you know that keeping it organized and attractive can be a challenge. Despite their importance, closets are rarely well designed. They often are tiny, making it hard to access all the nooks and crannies, and lack good lighting.
