The house of 10,000 books in New York

This is the home of Jane Friedman. It’s located in New York and it’s a duplex. It’s always inevitable to bring work at home. However, for this publishing executive it wasn’t something she wanted to avoid but rather something she enjoyed doing. As a result, her New York apartment is filled with approximately 10,000 old-fashioned books.

With a career dominated by books, Ms. Friedman considered her extensive library to be a part of her. The library tells the story of her life. It’s a home that has more books than actual libraries. It must be very nice to see all those books and to be able to tell the story of each one of them. Some of them belong to authors that Jane Friedman met personally while other have a different kind of sentimental and professional value.

Brazilian editor and stylesetter Fabrizio Rollo apartment

This is the home of Brazilian editor and style-setter Fabrizio Rollo. It’s a lovely apartment located in Sao Paulo. As expected, the interior design is quite unique. It features an eclectic approach, with influences from different periods, with different patterns and color palettes. The effect is bold and eye-catching and, even though there are a lot of styles in there, they all work beautifully together.

The apartment is surprisingly colorful and bold, if we compare it with Fabrizio Rollo’s neutral appearance. The apartment covers a total area of 3,200 square feet. It’s located in a 10-story building that dates from the 1960s. It’s a modernist building that, despite its age, keeps up with the times. The apartment is located in a fashionable district of Sao Paulo. The location is very beautiful, but the interior is indeed very surprising.

Modern penthouse with an unusual glass bathroom floor

Great architects and designers are very creative, even if sometimes their creativity results in funny or crazy things, too. For example the guys from Hernandez Silva Architects were hired to renovate a beautiful Mexican colonial-style penthouse that was built and arranged in the style of the 70s. And since this era has long gone they tried to do something interesting and change the style inside the penthouse. But if they did a great job for the rest of the penthouse, they arranged the bathroom in a very unusual way that some will love but some others will hate, as that is what usually happens with controversial things.This is the Unusual Penthouse with See-Through Floor.

It is indeed puzzling to see a totally normal bathroom with totally transparent flooring. But this is just the tip of the iceberg. The thick glass under your feet allows you to see what lies beneath: a very deep hole in the earth that was once excavated with the thought of installing a secondary elevator. This never happened but the hole remained, so the designers thought it would be a good idea to use it.

Colorful 400 square foot apartment in Chicago

Continuing our research on small and tiny apartment and the ways in which they can be cleverly decorated in order to seem bigger, we found this beautiful apartment in Chicago, IL. The apartment belongs to JoAnn. It measures a total of 400 square feet so it’s a tiny home. However, it’s also a welcoming and very cozy home.

The apartment is small but very beautiful and cleverly decorated. Since it’s such a small place, some things had to be sacrificed. For example, there’s only one closet in the entire apartment. It might seem like an unfortunate compromise but the fact is that there are also other ways of storing things without having to rely to space-wasting closets. In this case, a clever solution was to create some functional storage space under the bed. In the bedroom, a series of shelves placed above the bed are the perfect solution that makes the nightstand seem useless in this case. It’s a space-saving solution and a very clever one as well.

Contemporary Schein Loft in New York

Not everything that is old is necessarily broken and ruined and must be destroyed. Some things keep their patina and this makes them even more beautiful. All you need to do is give them a new face, a make over, and they will look great again. For example some guys from Archi-Tectonics in New York thought of giving a new face to an old warehouse in Soho and covered it in a waterfall of glass. Underneath the apartments were given a modern look and the result can be seen in this Contemporary Schein Loft.
