House with views over the lake and the tall trees

Located on the edge of the Scarborough Bluffs in Ontario, Canada, this beautiful contemporary house benefits from the unique dramatic views over the lake and the tall trees. It was a project developed by Taylor Smyth Architects. The house sits on an area of 2,300 sqf and it was completed in 2011, so it’s a fresh new home.

House on the Bluffs by Taylor Smyth Architects

The new residence uses the foundation from an already existing house that used to be the owner’s childhood house. This way the memories weren’t completely erased and the new home rises from the ashes of the old one. This also allowed the nearby trees to be preserved. The exterior design of the house is quite simple. From the street it look like a white box with vertical glass panels. During the night it’s a lot more spectacular and it glows into the darkness like a giant lantern.

Café Liberty Interior Design by SHH

Café Liberty is a restaurant located on the second floor on London’s iconic Liberty department store on Regent Street. The place was originally built in 1924 using the timbers from two ships: the HMS Impregnable and the HMS Hindustan. The restaurant has been redesigned by SHH. It was a tight-budget project, even more difficult considering its location. The restaurant has been re-integrated into the spirit of the original Arts & Crafts building using a series of vintage elements combined with contemporary pieces.

Some of the new elements that could be mentioned here are the reclaimed 1920s doors, a 1920s Arts & Crafts washstand, the reading desk and mahogany cabinet, the hand-blocked wallpaper and a series of reclaimed glass lights and three neon flying ducks designed by SHH’s lead designer on the project, Helen Hughes.

Amazing Up Filer from Westerville Design

In case you are a teacher you work a lot with all kinds of documents, files or other kinds of papers. It is also my case and you can even imagine how my house looks like. It is full of books, magazines, documents, different types of school materials, old documents and so on. These days I had to search for a certain document and this was a real challenge. From time to time I reorganized them; update them so that I can throw the unnecessary materials and new space for the new comers. It is an activity that never ends, perhaps when I must retire.

Unusual Boeing Stearman PT-13 Engine Coffee Table

I am one of the persons who adore planes and go by a plane. Many years ago I went for the first time by plane and it was a special experience which offered me great sensations. I was so happy about this experience so that I could not resist getting a new chance of trying again the same sensations. So as one of my brothers began some courses of gliding I did not escaped the opportunity when he told me that I could accompany one of the pilots who were at the board of the plane which was supposed to take the gliders to the high sky .I was thrilled by this experience and enchanted by the fact that I got three flights.

Perhaps my passion for planes comes also from the fact that my grandfather, my uncle and my husband were soldiers for aviation.As I cannot afford myself to some other experiences of this kind perhaps a thing which can remind me of all these moments can be great .If you are also attracted to these things and love history too you can admire this unusual Boeing Stearman PT-13 Engine Coffee Table.

Andi & Dean’s before and after master bathroom

Andi and Dean are a couple that decided to buy their own apartment in San Francisco last year. The apartment wasn’t in the best shape so they’ve decided to renovate and remodel it. The couple started to do that room by room and they were very careful with the budget. Let’s take a look at what they’ve managed to do with the master bathroom.

The couple saw some Anne Sacks tiles that really loved but they were over budged so they had to search for something else. They found a similar offer for less. The walls were covered with classic subway tiles and painted in a soft tone of green. For the sink, the couple found a very nice model at Restoration Hardware but it cost $1,200, not a very attractive price. After some research, they found this beautiful metal base cabinet at Restoration Hardware Outlet and they only paid one third of the price for it.
