BAK Architects construct Concrete house in Mar Azul Forest

400 kilo meter south of the Buenos Aires is Mar Azul which is a seaside town, well known for its large dune beach and the leafy coniferous forest. The region considered to be dangerous has been chosen by few owners as a challenging topography, they do not choose a place for their cottage which is neither away from the sea nor the most lived zone.

They are at the moment more focused on the construction alternatives such as low budget, reducing the impact of the landscape and minimum or posterior maintenance and mainly the construction in the short time. They have plans of making their house in a shape of a prism which will have extended proportions with a minimum height and it’s supposed to have a big diagonal slope which is supposedly close to 6m between the opposite corners.

This is just a prototype kind of construction. On the balcony they have the main ambiences one followed by the other and both are connected by the deck. The sunken side we will find the bathrooms and the kitchen. The dining room is found at the end and it goes partially underground. The architects are Maria Victoria Besonias, Guillermo de Almelda and Luciano Kruk from BAK Architects . The total land are covered is 595.50 square meter and the area built so far is 90 square meter.

Decorate with Whites and Greys Ideas

Neutral tones are especially practical in the world of decoration because their neutrality means they can easily be teamed up with other colors. Warm colors make a room seem smaller and more homey, a place where we can retreat to unwind. Decorating a home with white and grey tones looks so clean and fresh in the same time.

Of course, using only these two colors might be a little exaggerated so you might want to add some colorful little details around the house. But that’s up to you. Maybe some people don’t need color. If you’re working in a very colorful and busy environment, when you come home you really don’t need any more color. All you want is some simplicity and these white and grey tones are perfect for that.

They also look very elegant. I personally like grey tones very much. Although I wouldn’t decorate my home just in white and grey. I would add some purple features maybe, or some blue. Looking at these examples presented here, they all look good. But it’s like something is missing from all of them. They look a little dusty and old. Maybe after all, too much grey is not such a good idea. And that’s all up to you.

Dark and Cherry Modern Coffee Tables

If you are going to make some changes in your home, you’ll want something that is modern and luxurious. But in making home improvements, it is important that you make sure that you will be comfortable and convenient. There are some wonderful modern coffee tables available that would really make a statement in your living room. You may find them to be both functional and your favorite conversation piece.

Dark and Chery Modern Coffee Tables1

On the Modern Furniture site I found the Dark and Cherry Modern Coffee Tables. The coffee tables support on the top a clear glass in an oval shape that also offers a luxury storage space. We hope you will like the cherry and black coffee tables and we are looking forward to your feedback.

I personally like them very much. I like the round shape and the way the base follows those soft lines wrapping the glass top. I also appreciate the glass shelf that you can find underneath. It offers a great storage space for your magazines or books or anything else that you might want to store there. Wood and glass was always a successful combination and these two coffee tables come to support this idea. They are simple and modern, beautiful and elegant.

Country Kitchen Design Inspiration

A country kitchen design means having a relaxed and friendly kitchen space with some antique or reproduction furniture where everyone can gather to enjoy wonderful meals and good conversation. The designs of a kitchen can be done in numerous ways depending upon the desired style, preferable location, available area, and specific budget. Here are some country kitchen inspiration ideas from countryhome.com.

Country Kitchen Design Inspiration

The designs presented are relatively traditional with a vintage look. But most of all they look authentic. You really feel like you’re in the countryside.  It’s a great inspiration if you like this style. I personally almost hate it. It has that old rusty look with all those useless decorations that I don’t like at all. I prefer much simpler designs that are preferably also modern. Honestly, why choose something so old and outdated when there are a lot of contemporary choices. I mean, things evolve for a reason.

But don’t mind me. Choose whatever you like. And if this is what you like than that’s ok. Don’t be afraid to express your opinion. Of course I didn’t take into account the possibility of someone who is actually living in the country and wants to redecorate their home. In that case this is a very good choice. You can’t just put modern furniture in a vintage house. It will look ridiculous.

Black and White design idea from Nacho Polo

This color combination of black and white can create a sensation in home decorating. Black will add appeal to a room as it is an anchoring color and it grounds a room. It is also a color of sophistication and is truly eye-catching. Nacho Polo takes a limited color palette and creates high drama. Also the accessories of this color such as light fixtures and furniture items come to enhance your home decor.

Lucyina Moodie Classic Home Style Inspiration

Classic home style is one of the most difficult styles to achieve in home decor as it relies on creating a formal, symmetrical, elegant room using quality decoration, furniture and accessories. This style draws quite a bit of inspiration from history and it is not the history of the poor farm or factory worker but that of the landed gentry and industrial leaders of the day. Here is a good home inspiration for this year, which comes from Lucyina Moodie.

Lucyina Moodie Classic Home Style Inspiration 7

It’s a very elegant design. Indeed it’s classic. It has refined lines and textures and every detail is where it’s supposed to be. Each piece of furniture looks like it was very well chosen for that specific location and they all look good when put together. That’s very important in order to achieve a uniform design. Even more important when it comes to classic designs, where we all know how important symmetry is. Everything has to look good individually and as a whole.

AQHayon Mirror on The Wall

When you wake up in the morning and look in the mirror what do you see? Most women will spend several minutes each day analyzing their skin in the bathroom mirror and also boys spend some time there …Anyway, in this weekend I found this gorgeous mirror by designer Jamie Hayon.

AQHayon Mirror on The Wall1

Made with modern laser-cutting technology, the AQHayon Mirror is as elegant and sophisticated as mirrors come. Available in stainless steel or white or black silkscreen versions, these mirrors are so versatile that they would look just as gorgeous in an entryway or dining room wall.

A mirror is a piece that anyone must own. I can’t imagine how it would be to dot have one of these beauties in your home. It would probably be a disaster, especially for women who are a little obsessed with mirrors. But let’s not take sides because men are often worst than women. For example my dad. He’s is so annoying when every morning he spends around an hour in the bathroom, washing his hair and then you can hear the blow dryer and the way he meticulously uses the leave-in conditioner. Sometimes I wish we didn’t have a mirror in the bathroom.

Nevertheless they are necessary. And this design is very beautiful and modern. And again, it’s so versatile that you can include it almost anywhere in the house.
