Mansard roofs are much trendy in today’s world of roof designing. But the original fact behind this sensational roof design is that they were made to counter the loopholes of the house regulations of old Paris.

The sharply sloping top-floor apartment at suburb of Prague has been converted into an exceptionally modern variation on the typical mansard roof style. Similar to this ancient building, the nature of the construction was altered considerably starting from the lower walls to the higher metal- wrapped and very trendy appearing penthouse space.

When two unlike things are combined effectively to create another object that is a lot more than the amount of its parts, gives a most satisfying moment. That’s accurately what occurs on a little pedestrian lane of Eindhoven, in the Netherlands, which was lined up with many lampposts and small pot that were helping more as mess than as useful objects.

Design firm BYTR analyzed the issue and unite the messy objects into unique, floating streetlights with luxuriant, alive lampshades. The design, which is know as  GREENSPOTLIGHT, was an instantaneous hit. Almost everyone would appreciate this design.

The general design of the apartment is relatively simple and elegant. But there’s the little details that make it look messy and disorganized. It looks like there’s too much going on. And I don’t know what that picture above the desk wants to transmit, but it’s not the most appealing view you can get above your desk. I wouldn’t want to see that every time I look up.

When you analyze each feature and furniture piece, they all look good and beautiful as individuals. But when you see them put together it’s not the same pretty image. It looks to me like there hasn’t been too much attention given to the details. It’s easy to just pick the items you like from the store, but when decorating a home it’s important to keep in mind the whole picture and the fact that it all has to look uniform.{found on atcasa}

I like the simple and asymmetrical shape of this bed. It offers you the features you need without exaggerating with the details and the visual features that are purely aesthetic. Nevertheless, this very simple and thin bed is also comfortable, despite its appearance. And because of the size which is considerably smaller than the usually heavy designs, this bed can be placed wherever you want, even in small places. It’s also lighter and easier to move around the house in case you decide you want to change its location.

I wouldn’t recommend you to use it for hide and seek games because even if there’s plenty of space underneath the bed, there’s not a very good place to hide from anyone.
