Steampunk-inspired tunnel for cats that want to combine privacy with the fun of playing hide and seek

Cats love to play and to have fun. They especially enjoy playing hide and seek with their human friends. But there is one thing that they probably love even more than that: their privacy. So if you want to combine these two things and to give your feline friends the perfect environment, maybe you could get some inspiration from this room.

This is a space that functions as an office but also as a room designed especially for the owner’s feline friends. The most unusual and eye-catching feature is evidently the steampunk inspired tunnel. The tunnel was created by husband and wife duo from design firm Because We Can. The name of the firm basically says it all. Why not give your furry friends a fun environment where they can play and have fun if you can?


Paviljoen Puur and the restored Fort Diemerdam, a project focused on accessibility towards the visitors

The Stelling of Amsterdam is a historical defense line that has been recently put on the UNESCO world heritage list. Part of this project is Fort Diemerdam which consists of a series of bunkers and a fortress guardian house. This year a project was developed focusing on making the whole structure more accessible to visitors and tourists.The project’s main goal was to restore the whole developments and to conserve as much as possible from the original design and structure. The team in charge of the project was Emma Architecten.

Besides the restoration of those structures, the project also involved the creation of a new pavilion called Paviljoen Puur. It is exclusively reserved for corporate and private events including product presentations, meetings, corporate events as well as weddings.


Creative interior design solutions by SL Project

Most of the times, the size of a home is important but not the only concern. Regardless of the dimensions of a house, there can always be a way to make the best of it. This project demonstrates that very beautifully. It’s an apartment located in Moscow, Russia. It features a limited internal space and it’s a wonderful example of how strategies can be adapted. The project was developed by SL Project, a Russian design studio.

As you can see, the apartment is rather small. This means there’s not a lot of space to waste when decorating it. SL Project adopted a simple and functional solution. The living room, for example, is a quite narrow and small space. It’s an actually a shared area that also includes an office. To make the best out of this space, the designers opted for a minimalist interior décor. The furniture is very simple, with straight, clean lines and with no unnecessary details or embellishments. The same goes for the rest of the décor.


Take your bike off the floor with these ingenious racks and hangers

Bikes are becoming more and popular these days. People are starting to recognize their practicality. There are several advantages to using a bike. First of all, it’s much more practical in a busy city where parking spaces are always a problem and where traffic is horrible. Also, bikes are environmentally friendly so, if you’re concerned about that, it’s a big plus. They also don’t require fuel so you get to save both money and space by using a bike instead of a car or motorcycle.

However, they’re not as comfortable as other means of transportation and they’re not practical when you have baggage or when you’re in a hurry. But at least you can store them inside your home. This, however, doesn’t necessarily come without inconveniences. You first have to find the space for the bike and then you have to come up with a smart way of storing it without making it difficult to take it out when you need to. Here are a few ideas that might inspire you.


LEGO Batcave built out of over 20,000 parts

We all have our passions and hobbies. Some of us are collectors while others like to be more productive and to build things. But there’s something that can be applied for all of us and that’s the fact that passion knows no age. And nowhere else is this better illustrated than at the Comicon. Here we see people of all ages and from all domains. At this year’s Emerald City Comicon a very interesting and impressive surprise was presented.

LEGO builders Carlyle Livingston II and Wayne Hussey presented their collaborative creation. It’s a Batcave that the two have built using over 20,000 individual pieces. It’s an impressive number but the result is a more impressive creation. The Batcave is built out of LEGO bricks and it weights over 100 pounds. It was a great effort that the two did, all just to show off their love for Batman. It took them more than 800 hours to complete the Batcave and, at the end, they got to display it for everyone to admire it.


A New Look for a Vintage Chair – The Maid Dress

We, people, get attached to the other people and things around us and we simply refuse to let go. We do not want to throw them away even if they are old and bad looking. Well, the point is that you do not have to be so radical as to replace them with new items, but you can try and give them a new look. It’s like an extreme makeover, but for furniture pieces instead of houses or people. Here is an idea of how you can get A New Look for a Vintage Chair – The Maid Dress or have somebody else do this for you.

The smart and creative people from Voila! made a living of gathering pieces of textiles from all over the place – pieces of all colours and patterns – and they simply give a personal and unique style to vintage chairs, adding some unusual but beautiful accessories. This Parlour Maid Chair is the best example of what you can do with some lace and white cotton cloth.
