Another Modern Residence in Maryland

This contemporary house is located in Bethesda, Maryland and it was designed by David Jameson Architect. It’s called the BlackWhite Residence, a name that expresses the idea of contrast that stands at the base of this concept. The house is not a completely new construction. It was created suing the masonry shell of an already existing house. This way the ruins were used for something productive and the new house emerged from the remains of an old one.

Decorate your home for Halloween using pumpkins

Halloween is almost here and like any other year it’s time for you to start searching for ideas. Of course, the star will be the pumpkin that you usually carve yourself or in family as a fun project. If you have kids, then it’s one more reason to try to make something special. Pumpkins are a very fun to carve and they are probably the most popular decoration during Halloween. Let’s see if we can find some creative and fun ideas that might inspire you.

Halloween pumpkins

However, if you want to be original, you can do something a little more elaborate like adding some detailing to the eyes, eyebrows and teeth.

You can even make a dragon head if you have the time and patience. If you don’t want something scary you can always go the other way and create something funny like a crazy pumpkin and, one of my favorites, a barfing pumpkin where you can also use the inside of the pumpkin.

Unusual Melting Clock

I’ve always been a fan of unusual and creative items. So when I first laid eyes on this clock I immediately liked it. Clocks are one of the few items that are both useful and decorative. That’s why people always try to incorporate them in all sorts of decorative projects. This particular clock is called the Melting Clock and it has a very suggestive name.

Unusual Melting Clock

Its design was inspired by the famous Dali painting “The Persistence of Memory”, a naturalist painting where there’s a melting pocket watch that resembles this one. Someone had the great idea to use that concept and to make it reality. The Melting Clock is fully functional and its mechanism works perfectly.

Classic wood bed system for large bedrooms

Most of the bedrooms usually need more than just a bed and a nightstand. Some storage space is also needed so additional furniture pieces have to be included. This means that the remaining space gets smaller and smaller with each occasion. But what if all those furniture pieces could be incorporated into one big structure? Then you could save a lot of space and you would only need a wall.
