There are times when there isn’t much you can do about the front façade of the house and you have to use height as an important factor to still manage a spacious outlook. This is what Archimania resorted to do for the orange house located in Memphis in the state of Tennessee. The speculative modern house conductive to urban family living only manages to get the pedestrian and parking in the front due to the space constraints but at the back, the facility does offer a lot more. The two-storey dwelling also gets an interior courtyard (understandably) and a rear pond as well. Other elements include a three-bedroom accommodation. The interior doors and the floors are made of wood and they keep the natural colour, which comes into a very nice contrast with the white walls and the black poles that support the building. It is a modern spacious residence and it has avery simple, yet refined interior design. The back side of the building features a large garage and everything has a natural look.
Even if we are living in the century of speed and modernism is at its peek, more are and more people are willing to live back in the golden days. In a more simpler way, people have started to adopt the vintage style.
Yes, adopting the vintage style was quite in trend some time ago. But now, it has gained more power than ever.
The ones who are looking forward to adopting the vintage style are also the ones who are looking forward to decorating their houses in the same style. Though, even if decorating with vintage style might be easy, in order to get the proper style people will have to keep in mind some rules of the vintage style.
First of all, when it comes to vintage, most of the people misplace this style with the Shabby Chic style. Though, even if they might appear to have some things in common, the reality is that they are different style with different trends.
The most representative element for the vintage style is definitely the vintage kitchen. A kitchen decorated in such a style should definitely have rug beaters, milk bottles, butter molds, vintage salt and pepper shakers, candy jars and many more. And if you have ever seen a movie from the ’80, then you must have seen that large washboard from every kitchen. Therefore, the vintage washboard is definitely an accessory you might not want to miss for your vintage kitchen.
For the Koreans, the late poet Yoon Dong-joo was an inspiration and this facility you see here was built to honor this great man. This house finished by BCHO architects is completely buried in the ground in Seoul, Korea and although underground, it has a lot to offer. This concrete lined residence has two courtyards with earth floors and interestingly all rooms are connected to these courtyards. The excavated earth makes as the rammed walls while pine trees have also been brought into use. I don’t know why the architect or owners of this house took the decision of having it built or better aid buried under ground, but this is actually a good thing: the temperature can be kept constant a lot easier because it is surrounded by earth instead of air and it insulatesthe house. The whole house is arranged so as to show connection to rough wood in any way possible. It may seem like too much, but it is actually quite pleasant to see wooden walls and floors and doors. It gives you the feeling of living in the woods. Even the bathtub is made of wood and there are some wood rings appearing on the wall from time to time, which increases the house appearance and makes it even more interesting.
A bar is definitely a desirable feature for a home and not that difficult to include in the design either. You just need to find the perfect place for it. Usually, the bar is an extension of the kitchen island and is used to visually separate the kitchen from the living space. But other types of designs can also be a great fit for your home.
