An aparment full of color and life

We all dream about redecorating our apartments according to our own style and personality and, at the same time, we want to do it the best way possible. Pedro Varela and Renata Pinho, architects who did a great job with an apartment in Porto,Portugal, provided one of the most enchanting solutions.

The result is so good, that you have the impression of finding yourself in a perfect place. What fascinates more than anything else is the color: yellow, as nothing compares to a color that makes you feel happy, full of life and enthusiasm and definitely makes you dream about the moment when you get back home.

Wood Grain Bath Rug

When I was a little girl I used to spend a lot of time at my grandparents who lived near the woods. Every once in a while my grandpa would cut a tree and chop it until it was perfect for the fireplace. I was simply fascinated by all the circles inside the tree trunk and I asked my grandpa what they were. I found out that they marked the number of years in the tree’ s age. It seemed so cool! I counted the age of so many trees since then, but I still like the pattern made by all those concentric circles so different in shade and intensity.This Wood Grain Bath Rug is a very well done replica of this pattern and proves to have a great design.

The rug is perfect for the bathroom because it is made of polyester and this material is very good for wet places, as it dries rapidly and does not catch mold easily. Besides, the rug has a latex backing which has anti-slip and anti-skid qualities. This way you will be perfectly safe in the bathroom, even when it is damp. But you cannot use bleachers or very strong detergents, but you can wash it in the washing machine. You can buy it now for $19.99.

The “Bali Ocean” sofa

The first thing you notice about this sofa is probably the name. Called “Bali Ocean”, this piece reminds us of the clear waters that we were able to enjoy, either when we were visiting that area or in pictures. Nevertheless, it’s easy to see what it was called like that. The Bali Ocean sofa was designed and created by Old Hickory Tannery, a company that was founded more than 30 years ago and it’s still a family business.

The sofa features a hardwood frame, durable and strong, and chrome-finished legs. It’s a simple piece, with a simple and comfortable design, a reason why it’s also very versatile. It’s the type of sofa that would look good in both traditional, rustic, modern and contemporary homes.

The dimensions of this cozy sofa are 85″L x 36″D x 38″T with 74″L x 22″D x 18″T seat and 24″T arms. Even though Old Hickory Tannery was originally focused on fine leather upholstery, now the company is equally known for its fabric-covered pieces. It offers a wide range of products, reflecting all kinds of styles. The upholstery is cut and sewn entirely by hand and this is something available for all their products. All springs are hand-tied to the frame and surrounding springs at eight points for lasting comfort and stability. The “Bali Ocean” sofa is no exception. You can buy this beautiful piece of furniture for $4,899.00.
