While we may not think of the bathroom as an important part of a home’s overall design, when you have a luxurious, perfectly appointed bathroom, people are going to notice…and you may not be able to get them to leave! The designs in this post come to use from interior designer Ahmed Mady and though each room is distinct, they all carry an essence of ultimate luxury. Go ahead, dip your toe in.

Many bathtubs may leave the bather feeling exposed and less than relaxed. By giving the tub a room of its own, complete with elaborate archways and glimmering golden lights, its not just private but decadent.

The nursery is such an important part of getting ready for a pregnancy.  This room is often where we bond with our children and envision holding them before they are even born.  It’s no surprise that new mothers want to make this space as beautiful and relaxing as possible, but nurseries have come a long way since just using pink or blue.  Modern nurseries incorporate new styles that can be a reflection or extension of their overall home.  With all of the lovely baby decor around today, you can really dream up just about any theme and making one that is unique, but modern may be the best way to go since for the first couple of years of baby’s life they will be spending endless hours in their chic new nursery.  Here are 5 different styles of modern nurseries to help make the transition easier and more fashionable at that.

Eclectic Glam Nursery

This nursery could be great for either baby boy or baby girl.  It effortlessly blends a chic white decor with dreamy pastels from the painting to the pillow and curtain accents.  It can even be a great transition to a toddler room with a bed.  Add a big bright window and comfy chair and you will love spending time here bonding with your new baby.

Elegant and Feminine Nursery

This nursery is definitely all feminine and full of tiny elegance.  This room looks like it was built for a little princess and that’s exactly the type of room the designers had in mind.  From the mini chandelier to the curvy photo frames, this room has just the right touch of elegance while still maintaining a comforting space for baby and family.

Rustic Nursery

Though this nursery appears rustic and a bit outdoorsy, I could easily see this being for a boy or girl with a few different elements moved around.  The wooden door adds such a fun element to this nursery and really brings the whole room together.

Modern Geometric Nursery

This geometric nursery would be lovely for a boy and I could still see it being for a girl too or perhaps twins!  The triangle decals on the ceiling are a wonderful focal point for baby to fall asleep to and the other subtle geometric prints sprinkled around the room really tie in well together.

Mid Century Modern Nursery

This nursery screams mid century modern and it looks like a nursery for a little man.  The clear crib is something you don’t see in every nursery and it can be a great way to make sure baby is sleeping safely inside their crib.

When a home measures just a couple hundred feet, adding in a lot of walls and room dividers can wreak havoc and make things feel even smaller. Luckily, the talented designers featured in this post are able to work with these small spaces and their open floor plans. The resulting apartments are still small, but they never feel closed off or cramped.

Only one thing matters in a bedroom: the bed. While other furniture pieces can help define the space, if the bed is uncomfortable, the bedroom loses its appeal. It is no secret that your days are determined by your nights, a good night’s rest makes you more cheerful and productive the next day. Furniture company Finkeldei knows the value of a good bed and that’s why it created Sissi, a bed for the modern user. When you get it, you’ll understand how people can oversleep without realizing it.

 

 

Two things make the Sissi Bed by Finkeldei stand out from other beds: a gorgeous frame and a vibrant hue. The bed is upholstered all through except for the top part of the headboard which is embellished by a metal border with a magnificent pattern. The metal border is curved by hand and is the most impressive thing about the headboard. At the footboard is a TV lift where you can place your flat screen TV. Sissi can be bought with a matching armchair named Paris, an upholstered bench named Vera, and a nightstand named Montana. It also comes in other gorgeous colors like lavender and beige.

 

 

A bedroom is all about a good night’s sleep. If you want a bed that gives you peace of mind and boosts the style of your bedroom, get Sissi. Don’t settle for anything less when it comes to your bedroom. Get a bed that is nothing short of stunning.

Do you think Sissi would make you sleep in?

Do you have oodles and oodles of books in corners around the house? Instead of stacking and throwing your collection aside, figure out a way to display and organize them in a stylish way. From bookshelves to bookcases, we’ve decided to share some beautiful inspiration on how to get it started. Take a peek at these super slick, modern book storage ideas!

If you don’t have too many books or not enough space, try finding a space saver type of display case. This modern, slick case has a lot of storage space hidden throughout but it also acts as a super cool piece of artistic accents. In the hallway, foyer, in the bedroom and even in your office; this would be a sure-fire focal point.

Modern Book Shelves

via

If you’ve got the wall space, find a shelf that has the room too. This crisp white wall makes the perfect foundation for a larger display and organizational piece. Fit boo-coos of books and even some other nick-knacks right inside for easy access and contemporary style.

Maybe you just have a small collection of prized books, then find a piece that lets you display them with class and easy. This chic, clean-edged find can fit into any nook and cranny throughout your home or apartment … or even a dorm room! How amazing would some classic, leather-bound books be sitting on this sophisticated design?

Another great piece if you’re lacking in space is this genius bookshelf – that you can also store some of your CD albums on as well. They’ll float on the wall and blend into any modern design scheme, even those with a more masculine, industrial edge.

For something a bit more delicate and that holds a feminine touch, install some glass shelves. It’s still very sophisticated and fashion-forward and you’ll also be getting a “floating” illusion as seen by its predecessor. We also love how these type of shelves can be installed in any larger space of the house from the living room to the hallway.

Drawing inspiration from the portico details and angular rooflines of Miami Modern style, the Alton Bench by Cumberland Furniture is a spectacular piece. Miami Modern style, also referred to as MiMO, was extremely popular in the 1950s and 1960s. Its sweeping architectural lines can be seen on the bench’s continuous steel legs. Alton has a sculpted seat with fine details which give it timeless appeal. It adds sophistication to homes, lounges, lobbies, museums, and libraries. It creates a striking presence with its straight lines.

 

 

Sure to add elegance, the Alton Bench is a must-have for every home. You can position it in the entryway and use it to put on your shoes at the beginning of the day and to slip them off at the end of the day. It draws eyes to its simple and sumptuous seat and invites users to sit and reflect at any time. You can get several benches and create the perfect outdoor dining spot. Without a doubt, your family and friends will enjoy dining outdoors. Benches have a great advantage over regular seats as they can accommodate more people.

Credenzas have many uses in homes. They can function as room servers, entertainment units, and as office storage. They are useful pieces that add value to homes. If you want a credenza that offers both fashion and function, get the Tantus Credenza by Cumberland Furniture. It is a complement to the Tantus desk and reflects the desk’s fine detailing and capacity for supporting work. Just like an office desk, it offers multiple options for storing large materials and handling files.

 

 

The Tantus Credenza is a chic storage unit that borrows from mid-century modern minimalism. You can use it in your dining room as a sleek buffet or in the living room as a unique TV unit. It is equipped with 2 large drawers on each side which offer ample storage for serving pieces or media components. Its solid wood top is the perfect spot to display your collectibles, family photos, or knickknacks.

 

 

In the sixteenth century, “credenza” referred to the tasting of food by slaves for their masters. Later on, the word became more popular and started being used in different fields. In the nineteenth century, it became the popular name for the furniture piece we know today. Just like the name, the furniture piece has evolved in many ways. It has been interpreted by designers in different ways. Cumberland Furniture’s fresh take is a sight for sore eyes. It has a contemporary design and will give your home new style.

Would you use the Tantus Credenza in the dining room, living room, or office?

Looking for a new home for your plants? Get Boulders Planter by Hive. It is designed by Jinggoy Buensuceso and comprises a juxtaposition of modern shapes with antique detailing. It has a fabulous polygonal shape which recalls modern sculptures and a rustic look created by the natural oxidation of metal. Boulders’ durable material makes it suitable for both outdoor and indoor environments. It is capable of withstanding harsh weather conditions when placed outdoors. It looks at home in the garden, patio, or deck. The planter comes in various sizes in a neutral rusty shade. It will make a lovely home for your potted plants and add to the beauty of your space.

 

 

Planters have a wide range of functions. Besides delighting the senses, they can be used to improve aesthetics and to cover up flaws. If you want a planter that does all this and so much more, get Boulders Planter. It looks more like a sculpture than a planter. Its geometric lines draw eyes downwards adding excitement to any space whether private or public. Boulders’ strength is in its size. It can be placed on an office desk, a side table, or even a kitchen countertop.

If you’ve been using wine casks as planters, it’s time to change that. Wine casks are not just outdated; they offer nothing in terms of beauty. Modern planters, on the other hand, are very elegant. They enhance spaces just by being.  They not only look good with plants, they steal the show when placed strategically.

What’s your take on Boulders?

This small apartment in Budapest comes in at just 40 square meters (431 square feet). Though that’s not a lot of space to work with, the designers at Suto Interior Architects were up to the challenge.
