Being a young couple can be a challenge. You may just be starting out in your careers, saving to buy a home, or just trying to find your footing in the world. On top of that, moving in together for the first time is stressful. But a few talented designers have decided to take on this challenges, offering two lovely studio apartment designs that would give any pair of newlyweds – or even just lovebirds cohabitating – enough stylish space to spread out and enjoy themselves on their way up the corporate (or artistic) ladder. The first apartment comes from the team at int2architecture, while the second is from designer Art Ugol.

The team at int2architecture designed this one bedroom apartment as a temporary home for a young couple.

Largely, the design focuses on dividing the small space into useful, separate zones without putting up any walls that would serve to close off the space.

Misplacing your keys at one time or another is an inevitable evil. Whether you’re prone to do it everyday or the one time you can’t remember where you left your keys ended up in being late to the biggest business meeting of the year, it’s important that you have “the spot” to place these important pieces every time you walk through the door. But that “spot” doesn’t have to be just a basket or corner you throw them in, instead fashion-forward and functional, decorative wall key holders are just what you need to keep yourself organized and your home stylized.

We are absolutely swooning over this adorable, original “puzzle piece” key holder. Made out of simple beech wood, this piece is both a decorative accent and a key chain all in one – just don’t lose the medallion or it won’t work. This is such a great gift for a bridal shower or housewarming gift.

Modern-Key-Holder

For a larger family, a bigger keyholder may be in order. And instead of hanging a bunch of hooks without any style, we recommend going with something a bit more efficient and fashion-forward. This cabinet has the ability to enhance any room, while still being a super functional and versatile piece of storage.

Why not try something a bit more industrial for your masculine-touched and edgy space? These rustic faucet hooks make for the perfect way to hang your keys and never lose sight of them when your at home. Besides, it’s quite a cool way to organize and style even the most bare and boring corners.

In the mudroom, entryway, foyer, laundry closet, or even in the bonus room a storage bench to keep your shoes tucked and stored seems like a wonderful idea, don’t you think? Keep yourself and the family from traipsing through the house with muddy feet by having one of these pieces ready at a moment’s notice. Take a load off, take off your shoes and put them inside for the next day’s travels. But don’t worry, it doesn’t just have to be for organizational and cleanly purposes, instead pick a bench with your home’s style in mind.  Now, let’s take a look at some real-life examples of stylish, functional and incredible versatile shoe storage benches.

Prepac-Shoe-Storage-Cubbie-Bench

Shoe Storage Cubbie Bench. Dual-purposed and versatile, this bench is a great addition to your foyer, mudroom, utility room or bedroom.

Sleek, clean and functional, this bench holds up to 18 pairs of shoes and keeps your foyer need and tidy. The chocolate brown finish goes well within  traditional setting and you can find some easy ways to spruce in and around the bench! A throw pillow or two could really do the trick.

Black-Finish-Solid-Wood-Storage-Shoe-Bench

Storage and functionality combine to shape this Solid Wood Bench. This bench provides extra seating, two-tier of shelves for shoes, and has a durable solid wooden frame

There’s an Asian tone to this piece that helps with a very zen and easy ethos. There’s ample space to keep your favorite shoes at a hand’s reach but it works well as a stylish bench instead of strictly function. We envision this piece in a small foyer or even in the entry’s leading hallway.

hall-bench

T​his luxuriously modern Hall Bench is available with or without a shoe rack. It is available in a wide range of lengths.

We love how this bench combines seamless, homey style with the function of a busy family. The shoe rack is built right in – although you can purchase the piece without it – and it doesn’t take away from the clean lines or silhouette. Pair this rougher look with complimentary pieces or make it the statement by pairing it with more modern looks.

Tansu-II-Shoe-Bench

Tansu II Shoe Bench – Natural Ash with Oak Cabinet

A bit funky, unique but made with an old-age spirited touch, this shoe bench has a lot of promise. We’d love to see this piece in a bright and vivacious color, hanging out in a family’s mud room just waiting for the cleats and school shoes to fill it. Of course, keeping it in its natural tone works great in a space that already has bouts of color.

shoe-storage-stool

The private wellness spa in Gloucestershire features a number of such items. A shoe-storage stool made from fumed oak features a swing out leather-lined compartment where the visitor can slip off and store when entering the building.

We are completely swooning over the hide-away factor that this bench has in store. Tuck your shoes away before entering the home and just shut the door to keep a simple and chic style. Of course, you don’t have to leave this bench outside, instead, right into the entryway would do the trick with no hassle.

Contemporary-Shoe-Storage-Bench

Designed and manufactured in Italy the Luce contemporary furniture range has been finished with a sleek style and premier high quality finish for a look that fits perfectly into a contemporary décor.

This is probably our favorite of the bunch. Slick and white with a lighted finish, and a shoe rack hiding underneath for organizational help, there’s not much more you could ask for in a modern furniture accent. Use the top as a bench or another way to add personality and pizzazz to your home with accents.

contemporary-shoes-storage-bench

If you’re looking for something contemporary and unique, look no further than to this artistic, geometric piece. Architectural profound and interesting, we are loving the ins and outs of this bench. There are so many options for organizing and styling within this structure – so we urge you to get creative if you design on something like this!

Shoe-Bench

The bench top and legs of the Shoe Bench are made out of 8/4 Cherry. The shoe rack and side panels are walnut.

This rustic choice is sure to be a conversational piece. A bench to be displayed in the foyer for every guests to use and adore, we love the organic nature of this cherry wood bench. Of course, the storage underneath for everyone’s shoes helps for functionality reasons. This is a larger choice, so make sure the space you decide to keep it in isn’t too small or cluttered.

elkamii-shoe-bench

Perfect for entryways and small spaces, the shoe bench blends storage and seating in an elegant, flowing design.

Another contemporary piece to mix within your modern and fashion-forward home. The neutral colors will help to blend within the confines of your already-made ethos, but the flowing lines and easy finish make it an interesting and fun bench to show off. This can easily become the artistic, focal point of whatever room it lands in.

Universal-Expert-Shoe-Bench

Beautifully useful. Made from bentwood and powder coated steel construction, this is one durable shoe bench from West Elm for tying your laces

Made with shoe storage in mind, this bench from West Elm gives you room for everything from muddy rain boots to yard-word only sneakers. But it’s topped off with a stylish twist that hides all the “mess” from the day’s adventures. The natural oak look paired with the white steel make for an interesting and youthful pairing, don’t you think?

The designers at Studio.O., a design firm located in Warsaw, Poland can take what just appears as a space and transform it into a unique and welcoming home. In the projects presented here, we have a chance to explore three different homes that each offer their own take on what it means to be comfortable. Although each plays with pretty neutral palettes and carefully chosen furnishings, they are easy to differentiate and stay true to the separate natures of each homeowner.

The best interior designs do not, in fact, feature a surprising element around every corner. In fact, the best designs keep to basic colors, simple objects, and bring focus to one or two truly unique pieces. In this contemporary apartment, from the team at SVOYA Studio, it is impossible to ignore the amazing vertical gardens that decorate the small but luxurious living area. With vibrant green plants and mosses growing straight out of the walls, the apartment becomes an oasis overlooking the city. The classic and the contemporary exist in harmony, and the result is an apartment that both celebrates its city, and lets you forget about the world bustling on below.

The design team admits to being incredibly inspired by this space, largely due to the views of the River Dnipro, the longest river in the Ukraine.

Are you patiently awaiting your little bundle of joy to come into the world? Are you busy nesting around the house and creating a nursery full of fun and surprised? Well, if you’re one of those bubbling moms or dads-to-be, we have something super fun in store for you to sift through today. A nursery is not a nursery without a proper rocking chair to sway your baby to sleep in the evenings and throughout the day for naptime. So, take some time a peek at our wonderful finds on nursery rocking chair ideas and styles!

Nurseryworks-Sleepytime-Rocker

I love the idea of having a rocker in a nursery instead of a glider. They’re much more chic and less bulky. You can’t go wrong with this one by Nurseryworks in chevron.

Chevron is in, so the printed style works no matter what your little one’s nursery theme may be. And this rocker has a timeless, mid-century modern appeal that any hipster-loving parent would swoon for. It looks comfy too, don’t you think?

ROCKID-contemporary-nursery-rocking-chair

Rockid is a cradle for the baby, for Mom or Dad it’s a rocking chair.

Feast your eyes on this slick and contemporary concoction. Rock yourself and baby right to sleep in this genius invention. It’s also less bulky and although you’ll have problems caddy-corning this piece in a nook, it’ll graze the walls of the nursery quite nicely.

Wingback-rocking-chair

Money Saving Project: IKEA Wingback Chair Converted to Budget Nursery Rocker By KENZ

And this piece was actually made for a nursery, and we mean that in a literal sense. Someone out there with some incredible DIYing skills took an IKEA wingback chair and transformed it into the perfect nursery rocker. It’s a great idea, right?

Rocking-Chair-For-The-Nursery

Water-resistant Nurseryworks Sleepytime Rocker with Lumbar pillow included

This easy and contemporary rocking chair has a very important component hidden under its surface. It’s water-resistant! And why is this important? When spills, messes, spit up and drool get the best of us, this rocker won’t get ruined.

Klaussner-Marlowe-Rocking-Chair

Nursery Classics, the newest division of Klaussner Home Furnishings, was developed to provide consumers with glider rockers, upholstered rocking chairs, and swivel-glide recliners that combine the best quality, design and fabric selection available in the infant industry.

Say hello to that shade of vivavious, popping hot pink! For a kick, an amazing accent and a breath of unique personality go with a glider that sings to you and your baby’s room. We’re also in love with the plush and comfy look of the piece.

Eddie-Bauer-Chair-and-Half-Rocker

This Chair and a Half Rocker is a classic style that will compliment any nursery or living room.

A rocker chair stylish enough to use in any part of the home gets an A+ in our book. But we also love how suave and edgy your baby boy’s nursery could be with this chic addition. The white edging, the hazy gray finish and the wide seating gives it a lot more interesting than the average piece.

Neo-Rocker-nursery-rocking-chair

If you’re looking for a rocking chair with a streamlined design and stylish body, then our Neo Rocker is the one. Its sturdy beech and pine frame and durable upholstery make it ideal for any nursery.

At first glance, you may not even notice that the Neo Rocker is, in fact, a rocking chair. It’s not bulky and it doesn’t take up too much space, which is fantastic for smaller rooms turned into nurseries. We love its frame, delicate nature and the heather grey and white color combination.  We also love the throw pillows, can you blame us?

quincy-rocker-and-ottoman

The Quincy rocking chair has a stunning winged design, modern profile and bold, contrast welt to help it stand out in any room. So is it more comfortable or more stylish? We’ll just let you decide.

Lavender! What little lady wouldn’t love this beautiful, lavender accent to transform her room into a cozy, princess palace? Mom will enjoy it too with its matching ottoman and easy rocking power. Of course, the clean lines only help to enhance its natural fashion-forward, yet homey, appeal.

15-Nursery-Rocking-Chairs

The Nursery Classics Marlowe Rocking Chair is the ideal companion for a mother and her baby as it offers a plush seat with a gentle rocking motion that will soothe the baby. This rocking chair with its simple design and vibrant looks make it perfect for a traditional home setting.

If you are looking for something a bit outside-the-box and more interesting to look at, try a patterned piece. This works exceptionally well in rooms with more than average space as to not clutter or create too much focal chaos. This print works even better on the chair choice because of its simple structural design.

 Retro and refined, this rocker has a throw back spirit that completely transforms the look of the average, traditional nursery. The coral hue, the simple, yet funky bones, it’s such a rad way to perk up and create comfort in your baby’s home. We just cant get over how surprising and fun this rocking chair really is!

baby-pink-chenille-rocking-chair

Slip these comfy pads on to your traditional-style rocking chair and rock the night away. Includes 2 cushions.

Sometime simplicity is the best. A classic rocking chair accompanied by a fun and playful cushion could be just what you’re looking for to finish off your baby-on-the-way’s nursery. Find something with soft texture and cool colors for a fashionable accent, you’ll love to sit inside and your baby will love to get a feel of its lush touch.

Ikea-Poang-Rocking-Chair

Ikea Poang Rocking Chair for Gray and White nursery

This Ikea rocking chair has such an interesting look and edgy spirit about it, don’t you think? The structure itself has an artistic tone and fun presence in a nursery that goes for style and comfort rather than childish appeal or flavor. Pair it with a puff for a quiant and quirky style, and think about adding pops of neon to a nursery with more subdued tones.

baby-nursery-rooms-rocking-chair

Surround your baby girl by beauty and luxury from her first days is easy with charming nursery furniture from Notte Fatata collection by Savio Firmino.

Delicate and refined, this rocking chair may not be big and bold, but it certainly has a beautiful, feminine touch that would spoil any little girl’s bedroom. Rock her in the evenings and eventually, she’ll be rocking there reading herself a bedtime story. This is a great piece to place in a room inspired by Victorian features or romanticized accents.

 

Check out this funky, lime addition to the bedroom! Cushy with a modern spirit, this piece does its job in function, fun and style! We love the playful attitude it brings to a more traditional nursery and afterwards when the rocking stops, you’ll be able to use this piece elsewhere in the house!

Morpheus -Nursery-Rocking-Chair

With its straight back, support pillow and ergonomic arm height for feeding your baby, this beautifully designed nursery rocking chair offers clean lines and exceptional comfort.

A rocking chair that welcomes anyone to sit at a single glance, this nursery chair has a homey spirit and contemporary design. Just take a peek at the beauty of its base. Architecturally beautiful with soft, clean lines, this may be our favorite of the pack. Of course, we love the pairing of subtle tones for a relaxing setting as well.

Situated in Northern Africa, as one of the only three countries to have a coastline along both the Atlantic and Mediterranean, Morocco has often been the subject of lush and romantic fantasy. The country is extremely diverse, with residents that are Arab, Berber, and many European and sub-Saharan African immigrants. The interior design that originates in Morocco reflects this diverse area, rich in cultural traditions and history. Characterized by intricate carvings, arched doorways, and colorful fabrics, it should come as no surprise that Moroccan interior design has become quite popular around the world. The images in this post are representative of some of the most stunning and vibrant modern examples of Moroccan interiors, both in and outside of the country itself.

Much of what can be described as Moroccan interior design has its origins in Moorish architecture.

When a business is creative, every aspect of that business can be driven by inspiration. For the type-face design firm Indian Type Foundry (ITF), this has extended naturally to their office space. The firm is actually one of its kind which designs fonts for the Indian languages and caters to clients like Apple, Google, Sony, etc. for their Indian language needs. And for a creative, inspiring, and beautiful space, they turned to the design team at YellowSub Studio. Working with a blank slate, YellowSub Studio was able to turn the space into a warm, colorful, open office with plenty of spaces for collaboration as well as retreat

The fireplace has always been a comforting and quite literal warm place for the family and friends to gather round during holidays, celebrations, or just plain cold weather.  They are a feel good spot to sit down and relax and can be a romantic spot to cuddle with your partner.  Fireplaces have since gone beyond simply providing heat and are now a focal point to a living room.  Fireplaces now appear even in homes that require no such heating.  They are warm, sensual, and inviting.  There are many styles and modern homes are jumping on the bandwagon with their unique takes on the traditional fireplace.  With the six modern fireplaces featured below, you can see how the fireplace has evolved.  Let’s take a look at how far the fireplace has come in recent years.

Do you have a dull corner or bare nook that needs a bit of refreshing? Does your home have large, open spaces (lucky you!) and you are at a loss on how to fill areas with interest and stylized ideas? Well, instead of creating clutter or leaving things without a whole lot of design initiative, what about taking something like a corner curio cabinet and having fun with the decor process after? Let’s take a look at 10 corner curio cabinets ideas and designs that each have a specific interior genre and ways to incorporate lots of personality!

RiverRidge-Home-Ellsworth-Corner-Etagere

Painted mdf wood composite Home Ellsworth Corner Etagere by RiverRidge

Slick and neutral, we love how this curio cabinet keeps within our favorite interior design trends: modernized style. Black is always in and there’s space enough for both displaying possibilities and organizational needs. Hide and tuck away extra blankets, the family’s board games or even some magazines and books in the bottom cabinet, and then use the top shelves for displaying parts of your flea market vase collection or other pretty pieces you have been needing an excuse to show off!

Riley-Lighted-Corner-Curio-Cabinet

Display your collectables with pride in this lighted curio cabinet.

 This curio is a bit more traditional in sense of design and usage. Put away your China or show off your antique pieces with ease and comfort. Not only does this cabinet have lighting capabilities, to highlight some of your most beautiful and favorite finds, but it’s got the doors to lock away and unwanted visitors. And the deep cherry wood is vibrant and fits well in a space that has a cozy, yet traditional spirit.

victorian-corner-curio-cabinet

1 Door Corner Glass Cabinet with engraved crystal finish and white gold Leaf

Personally, I am in absolute, head-over-heels love with this crystal-finished, white gold leaf, Victorian-inspired corner curio. It’s luxurious, it’s grandiose, some may say it’s even a bit too bold. The personality and wild flavors of this cabinet are sure to leave it as a fun focal point and conversational piece for any room of the house. Pay attention to the details of the case, it’s quite delicate and beautiful, don’t you think?

hardwood corner curio cabinet

This is another great example of a cozy, traditionally styled curio cabinet. It fits perfectly in the corner with its deep, cherry-hued foundation and has beautiful golden accents for a delicate touch. Of course, we love the fact that you can not only organize and store items understand in a tucked away fashion, but you can also display your finer decor pieces in the upper half without having to worry about little ones grabbing them off the shelves.

Tempered-Glass-curio-cabinet

A Curio Cabinet is not only enhancing the look of your room, but at the same time it also helps you to organize your collections in a fashionable look.

Is this cabinet not the absolute coolest? Its contemporary style and futuristic vibes gives it a great spot ti  help enhance a chic studio apartment or suave bachelor pad. Create a wine bar or entertaining area in the corner this piece calls home, or just use it as an easy decor piece for an area that needs a bit of interesting transformation. Of course, the fact that you can organize and take care of your collectibles in an easy way gives anyone great benefit.

Coaster-Curio-Cabinets

This curio is a corner wedge with a round front that offers generous room for irregular shaped items.

Another black cabinet that fits in well with a variety of interior design themes and genres, it also has the perfect amount of space for showing off a variety of goodies. From classic China to souvenirs from around the world, the separate and sizeable compartments make for an interesting and functional cabinet piece. The mirrored backing from inside also helps to create more space in and around the corner – which is always a plus.

Corner-Curio-Silver-Cabinet

Beautiful Contemporary Corner Curio will slide comfortably into almost any decor with its sleek contemporary style

This is another great example of a small but mighty piece of home decor. It’s modern, it’s fashion-forward and will intrigue many a visitor who walk through the door. Place it in the dining room table, living room or even in your home office for an easy way to display, store, organize and create a room full of ahead-of-the-time thinking and trends. Again, the mirrored backing will help create the illusion of extra space and light, which is one of the best benefits of interior design and decorating.

Contemporary-style-curio

Curio Cabinets lighted with recessed halogen light to enhance the look of your collections.

Truly show off your unique antiques or beautiful collectibles with a completely translucent case. The black finish helps to create a slick and edgy modern curve and the rounded stand just amps up the personality and youthful measure. We would love to see this piece flying solo in a long and wide hallway or even in a bonus room meant for entertaining purposes.

windsor-brushed-solid-oak-corner-display-cabinet

Hand crafted by skilled joiners, the outstanding quality of traditional woodworking techniques are obvious

How could you not love the skilled perfection and homey appeal of this wooden cabinet. Probably one of the most versatile pieces of the pack, this corner curio cabinet can be used for so many organizational and decor needs. From breakfast nooks to guest rooms, there are literally a variety of ways to make this piece of handcrafted perfection work throughout your home. It can even easily be used as a personal bookshelf for your own choice book collection.

Black-Corner-Curio-Cabinet-by-Pulaski

This beautiful Curio Cabinet from Pulaski combines traditional elegance and styling with modern functionality.

And maybe we decided to save the best for last. This cabinet has it all. It’s got display possibilities, doors to keep collectibles from getting broken or bruised, it’s got chic style and pops of interested pizzazz throughout the glass work. It fits in the corners of any room you have the space for and, my favorite part of decor pieces like this, it has lighting to shine on your most impressive and beautiful pieces. When guests come over, you have just another bit of something special to intrigue them with!

When most of us dream of a luxury home of our own, our mind may wander to a penthouse in Manhattan, a villa in the South of France, or a private tropical cabana. But it takes a special kind of person to find their own sense of luxury in the solitude of the desert. For example, the type of person that might not want to be found?

Once you look inside this incredible organic modern estate from the architect Kendrick Bangs Kellogg, you might wish you had your own henchmen to polish the rich wood and keep the front steps swept clean of high desert sand.

The home sits on 10 acres though the building itself measures 4,643 square feet.

Are you thinking about creating a space for your little ones that is made with playtime and fun only in mind? Or are you trying to figure out how to cool ideas into your teen’s bedroom. What do you think about adding a hanging chair into the mix? It not only adds to a whimsical and playful atmosphere but it also adds a comfy place to relax and take a break from the day. They can grab a book for a quick read or grab 50 winks for a quick afternoon refresher! We’ve compiled an easy list of 12 hanging chairs for kids that not only have trendy, funky spirits but also great ideas in each and every photo that we hope will inspire your playroom decorating or young bedroom design. Take a look!

Attractive-Hanging-Chairs-for-Childrens-Bedrooms

Attractive Hanging Chairs For Children’s Bedrooms

These windowed, bubble-like hanging chairs transform a “normal” playroom or child’s bedroom into something with such a contemporary flair and playful essence. They’re roomy enough for a nap and they’re strong enough to be able to swing to and fro during storytime. Of course, your kiddos won’t be able to wait to show them off to all of their friends from school.

Hanging Bubble Chair

Fun Modern Kids Room With Hanging Bubble Chair

This hanging bubble chair won’t be able to be used by your little one for years to come, but it certainly helps with the overall ethos of a nursery with furniture, modern visions in mind. We also love how this chair stands alone and doesn’t have to be hooked into the ceiling, and it doesn’t take up too much space in smaller rooms.

Cacoon-Hanging-chair

Have fun in the backyard with these hanging tent chairs! Are you trying to figure out how to make your large space outside a bit more kid and entertainment friendly? Snag some of these seats for Christmas and hook them up outside. Your kids will love having their friends over to enjoy and lounge in the backyard. Obviously, they come in a variety of different colors and they can be used for so many different events!

colorful-kids-hanging-chair

Add a bit of bohemian funk to one of the bedrooms in the house. This is a great addition to your college freshman’s new apartment or your tween’s new “big girl” bedroom now that she’s entering middle school. Pile on the pillows and blankets and use this type of piece to enhance and transform a room without much decor or design. We love the color, the pattern and the “world market” vibe this chair gives off, don’t you?

HAMMOCK-CHAIR-DIY

While this chair is made for kids, it could be used by adults as well, its strong enough to hold up to 200 lbs

Strong enough to hold up to 200 lbs, mom and dad can get in on the action with this sling seat! Create a reading corner under the stairs or in the playroom, using this as the main focal piece. It has such an organic, simple and hipster spirit that it’s definitely a trendy choice, but it also doesn’t take up too much room or cause clutter in areas that can’t handle bulky pieces.

handmade-kids-gipsy-swing

Each swing is handmade and unique

This handmade swing also has a casual, beautiful and bohemian spirit. Again, it’s a great piece to help evolve your teen’s bedroom into something a bit more “grown” up and cultural, but it’s also a great piece to simply rest and relax in around the house. All it needs are some pillows and blankets waiting inside, with a plush rug underneath. Your kids will love taking a load off here after their homework is finished in the afternoon and a nap before dinner starts to call.

Kids-Hanging-chair-by-True-Latvia

Maffam Freeform is Latvian-made modern and high quality garden furniture and interior objects made of modern and ecological materials, very unique and 100% handmade.

Take a good look at that caption. This hanging chair is quite striking but it’s also 100% handmade with ecological materials, which of course, perks our ears right up. You can even fit two of your little ones inside for sleepover fun or brother and sister playtime. The black finish and patterned inside will make mom and dad happy with their love of modern style, but the “cool” factor of this hanging chair will make your kiddos feel special, spoiled and always cozy.

Swing-Seat-contemporary-kids-chairs

The extra thick upholstery of this hanging chair makes this a must for a kids room.

The fabric is thick enough to keep parent’s feeling secure when your son or daughter is inside, but what we love about this fun piece is the pockets and extra padding! There’s a coziness and comfort sewn right into this hanging chair and there are pockets for your kids to fit toys and books that they may need when they’re resting.

the-floating-cave-hanging-chair

Joki – the floating cave offers children a place where they can hide and dream a away.

This hanging chair is known as the floating cave and rightly so. Once your little one takes a seat inside, they can easily tuck away to dreamland in warmth and comfort. We love how this piece too doesn’t take up too much space with a bulky foundation, especially since your children’s bedrooms are smaller than master suites and need to be kept less cluttered, since toys and games like to clutter the corners.

white-hanging-chairs-for-bedrooms

Hidden away near the bay window, this simple hanging chair creates a special spot in a child’s bedroom or play area. We love the idea of creating a reading corner for your kids to enjoy, fill with cozy resting areas and favorite stories. It’s important to instill a love and wonder for reading (and writing) when they’re younger, and with a special “spot” and chair to do so, they will love having evenings in the storytime nook even more so.

Vivere-Brazilian-Hammock-Chair

This Vivere Brazilian Hammock Chair in Paradise promotes relaxation and leisure and makes an ideal addition to any outdoor vacation

Are you not loving the colorful and playful nature of this hanging chair? Bring it on vacation to hook outside during days on the beach or create a special spot for your daughter or son to enjoy in your own backyard. It’s simple, but the hues and textures of this chair promotes style and personality while also being a cozy place to rest and relax.

Rolling-Wood-contemporary-kids-hanging-chair

 

Here’s a perfect example of a bohemian-styled hanging chair in a teenager’s bedroom and what it can do to help transform a space. Without it, the corner of this fun area would be bare and with its addition, paired with the colors, patterns and baskets at the foot of the bed, this young lady has a snazzy room to show off to her friends and an extra spot to take a load off and do some reading for school in.

Who doesn’t need a little more space in the kitchen or dining area for storage and organization purposes? Even if you have cabinets and pantries galore, it seems like keeping clutter at bay in the kitchens is hard work no matter what the space has for help – especially if you love to host your own dinner parties and events. That’s why it’s a great idea to have some “hideaway” storage options like benches with compartments, drawers or cubbies to fill. Not only do benches act as a unique and trendy seating choice in the dining rooms, but you can find a host of great pieces that have storage opportunities right underneath and inside. Let’s take a look at these 10 dining room benches with storage ideas as some real-life options to inspire your next big move in home organization and style.

Dining-Room-with-custom-storage-bench

Storage bench continues into Living Room for more seating, storage, and media display.

This bench continues up against the wall right into the living room to give more seating opportunities while entertaining and more places to organize extra kitchen necessities, shoes and even your vast array media options (from books to Blu rays). We love the chic sliding doors that keep everything inside hidden from eyesight and the smooth edges of the piece, while the light wooden hue helps to combine a traditional feel with a contemporary flair.

Startling-Breakfast-Nook-decorating-ideas

We are loving this creamy nook accented by fall-flavored, mustard pieces. There’s something incredibly welcoming and uplifting about spaces covered in bright neutrals, and they’re especially fun to decorate with. This comfy dining seat also has the best of both worlds in style and functionality. It not only has the comfort of a diner booth at your favorite local eatery but it too has storage drawers underneath to keep extra baking pans and entertaining needs kept hidden.

dining-room-deisgn-ideas-with-storage-bench

This spot is quite a bit smaller than a normal dining room section. Instead, it’s more of a breakfast nook, perfect for bowls of cereal in the morning,  tea time with the ladies in the afternoon or sharing a slice of warm, apple pie in the evenings with your significant other. It’s quaint and cozy, but more importantly, it’s got extra drawers to help out with organizing your kitchen or even your “junk” spaces (you know we all have them).

transitional-family-room-with-upholstered-storage-bench

Is this dining room bench not gorgeous? With its tufted, velvet and crimson-shaded cover, it’s a beautiful centerpiece for dinnertime and an absolutely gorgeous accent for a chic and modern room. It has a bit of a luxurious, “special time” feel we love for the holidays and special events too. But, when you take a closer look, you’ll notice those posh drawers right underneath where your guests will take a seat. Peek inside to find extra bar needs for nights of entertaining or your holiday cookbooks for when those special days roll around.

Again, we love creamy white spaces, especially when it comes to a dining area. It wakes us up with a smile in the morning and puts us at ease when you’re tired after a long day at work. And this crisp and white-covered nook, accessorized with gorgeous golden yellow and heather grey accents, makes us a little jealous. The modern, fashion-forward chairs, the wooden table and the pillow additions make for a fun, interesting and textural setting. Add that extra storage underneath and you’re having your cake and eating it too – almost literally.

Are you looking for something super specific to match your home’s already made style? Well, this barnwood bench is large, in charge, bold, rustic and has roomy storage cubbies to boot! Imagine this piece in the corner of your dining room just waiting to help out with organizing and seating arrangement. It’s a beauty, don’t you think? We love how functional a piece like this can be but we also love how it acts as a conversation piece that’s transformative and artistic in design.

dining-room-storage-under-benches

How fantastic would it be to have a kitchen that literally opens right up to your outdoor patio?!

This space combines and mixes so many interior design styles we love, in such a well-ordered and stylish way. From contemporary lines to traditional accents to beachy vibes, it’s got a little bit of everything to create a luxurious, “home away from home” feel. Of course, you’ll notice the storage underneath that makes our hearts soar, but the overall ethos of this dining area is absolutely swoon-worthy. The subdued and rich teal tones paired with creams, natural lighting and unfinished wood has a trendy and fun sense we’re loving.

Storage cubbies can really do a lot, as you can see with this playful, family corner. Traditional baskets for organizing and dividing and a modern table to top off the colorful flair, this is another example of mixing style genres with ease and personality. This may not be the normal dining room area, instead it’s another example of a cozy breakfast nook for quick dinners and casual lunch dates, but it’s still an area of the house that deserves attention to detail and style. Do you also notice that the colors evoke a sense of retro spirits? It’s just another fun accent we believe makes this corner go from average to special.

A clean-edged bench is really all you need to create a starting palette and foundation for decorating. Then you can easily build your own style all around without being overwhelmed or pushed in a way that, decoratively, you don’t want to go. This bench, made with roomy drawers for ducking away clutter, could easily be paired with a modern, futuristic style, but instead it was taken on a journey to a more cottage, feminine-like route, which is equally as fun and stylish too!

Cary-Bernstein-Dining-Room-storage-bench

A personal favorite of the set, this modern dining area is flawless. It’s got that crisp and smooth-edged feel that we love in contemporary living, but it’s also got elongated cubbies for storing everything from dirty shoes to books right underneath. Of course the white and charcoal color duo is a plus, as are the tall windows giving off a sifnicant amount of natural lighting, opening up the kitchen and the mealtime area.

Once an area that many tourists were reluctant to visit, Vietnam has since become a tourist hub for travelers from around the world. One of the many attractions the Southeast Asian country offers is access to some of the world’s most beautiful beaches. This cluster of beach villas, named Oceanique Villas, by MM+ Architects in Phan Thiet takes full advantage of these beautiful beaches. The villas look out onto the water from every possible angle. Visitors can easily swim in the scenic ocean or relax in a private pool or luxurious interior areas.

The villas are located in Mui Ne on the southeast coast of the country where much of the beachfront property is dominated by large resorts and hotels.
