Are you a crafter at heart and love to dip your hands into all kinds of DIY projects? Do you have a scrapbooking stockpile and do you hoard ribbons and stickers year-round?

1. A Sewing Spot.

In the kitchen or in the dining room, all you need is a small, thing table to make this work. The longer the surface the better, as it elongates the wall and all you need is your sewing machine to make the magic happen.

Ali Cayne’s West Village Townhouse Features An Eclectic Style

This is the West Village townhouse of Ali Cayne, the founder of New York’s Haven’s Kitchen. It’s a large space with elegant rooms and a variety of styles and influences. That’s because she decided to design the interior herself and she doesn’t have a background in design. However, she knows what she likes and this made everything very easy.

The townhouse has high ceilings and herringbone wood floors and it’s decorated with taste and style. The lighting fixtures are particularly interesting because they feature different styles in each room.

A Place to Spend a Lovely Winter Afternoon

It’s wintertime and, where I live, the temps are below freezing and the skies are grey. Grey with smoggy inversion as much as sun-less-ness, which makes things outside particularly dismal. That’s why, when I stumbled across this living room photo, I couldn’t take my eyes off it. Neither could I keep from wishing I was there – there, in the middle of that sofa on the left, to be exact, with a throw blanket and a book in my hand but my gaze permanently strayed to that gallery wall. Such a lovely space. I’d love to spend an afternoon here, and let me tell you why:

1. Soft, rich colors.

Starting with those gorgeous honey-toned wood floors and moving immediately up to the buttery velvet sofas, the space evokes warmth and welcome. The golden hues are echoed within the gallery wall and tempered by plenty of fresh whiteness on the walls and fireplace. The palette is simultaneously elegant and soothing…not exactly an easy combination to strike.

The Tiny Project – An Inspiring House On Wheels

The Tiny Project has a name that describes it perfectly. It’s a tiny house which measures 8 feet by 20 feet and it’s a very interesting thing to analyze.Recently completed by web designer Alek Lisefski, the Tiny Project was entirely his creation.He designed the house and built it himself on the weekends.

You might wonder what makes this project so special. Well, this house may be tiny but it has everything one needs. It’s a mobile home as well so you can take it with you when you go on vacation. Its owner just moved it from Iowa to California.

But let’s talk a little more about the design and construction process. The house has a modern design and, even though it’s small, it has 10 windows and glass doors so there’s plenty of natural light inside.

Museum Transformed Into Luxury Home In Rotterdam

Sometimes interior designers get so focused that they manage to do an excellent job at recreating a style and so you sometimes get the feeling that you’re in a museum rather than in a home. But the opposite can be achieved as well. It’s what happened with this space. This used to be the Kralings Museum at the Hoflaan but now it’s a modern luxury home.

The transformation was a project by Rotterdam-based studio Peña Architecture. The former museum is now a stunning apartment building with a contemporary and open layout. Sunlight makes all the rooms look incredible and they’re all stylish of course.

25 Open Concept Modern Floor Plans

The past several decades have seen a transition in floor plans and home layouts from separate, distinct, and defined spaces toward more fluid, open-concept exchanges. Modern homes today may not have specific walled-in rooms for living, eating, and dining. (Some don’t even have a separate place for sleeping.) But that’s not to say that these spaces don’t exist in the modern home. They’re just delineated differently.

Here’s a look at 25 beautifully laid out modern “open concept” spaces…and what makes them work. Check them out, and prepare to be inspired.
