Luxury can mean many things to many different people. It is not about color schemes or specific design ideas, but a unification among disparate, beautiful elements. The apartments featured in this post are not necessarily the million dollar penthouses of Manhattan or the mansions of its Greenwich neighbor. Instead, these apartments take simplicity and elevate it to luxury with the use of soothing colors, sumptuous materials, and carefully planned design. Let these apartments serve as an inspiration for your own aspirations.

The first apartment comes from architect Sergey Makhno and uses many neutral colors to create a simple but luxurious atmosphere throughout the house. The herringbone hardwood floors serve as a foundation for a largely white and wood interior.

A brushed metal panel in the ceiling gives an edgy dimension of industrial style to the otherwise classic design. A buttery leather sofa in creamy white is a focal element, inviting guests to sit and relax with a glass of champagne - but never pinot noir.

The second apartment was visualized by ArchID and has an extremely open feeling, which is a commonality with many contemporary apartment designs. Rather than white and wood, this space uses gray and cream with accents of trendy banana yellow to give the main room a 60's mod-inspired feeling.

The third apartment from designer Iliyan Stoyanov is a bit more airy with white and gray playing off one another and bringing lights of light and space to the low-ceiling design. From silvery gray wall panels to sleek white bar stools, the overall look is quite contemporary and clean.

Apartment four was designed by cro.smile and also manages to get quite comfortable with a predominantly gray color scheme but uses unique elements to bring a posh feel. This includes the living room's pretty dangling light fixture as well as the sling chair in the corner that screams stylish, modern luxury.

The name Tetris House likely calls to mind the brightly colored game, but it is not the colors or infectious music that are the inspiration for this Sao Paulo home. Instead, architects Marcio Kogan and Carolina Castroviejo found inspiration from the way that the boxes in that game fit together snugly. This home, like the game, seems to be made up of many different boxes that fit together, creating separate rooms that work in harmony with one another. The home is large and gorgeous, featuring a bold use of natural wood slats, creative circulation, and sleek furnishings that create a beautiful space perfect for luxurious Brazilian living as well as wonderful, boisterous entertaining.

Unless a luxury home is perched high above the Manhattan skyline, space and privacy are essential elements and it is no different with this house. From the front entry, the house is set back from the street and shaded with trees and a gorgeous natural wood fence to provide the utmost in discretion.

Inside the house we can begin to see the architect's vision come to life. The main living area is made up of one box, measuring 2.85 meters (just over 9 feet), that is nestled inside the larger box of the house, which measures 15.5 meters (about 51 feet) high. The open plan living area is contained within this box, but there still opens up to both the front and back of the house, maximizing the space.

Overlooking the main living space is a "de dentro para dentro" esplanade, which is essentially an indoor balcony. The interior designer, Diana Radomysler, as created a bright and welcoming workspace from this element. It is on this balcony that we also get a clear look at the warm and lovely wood slatted ceiling. These slats are not only design-friendly but they actually serve a climate control purpose as well, absorbing heat during the day and keeping the space cool even in the Brazilian summer.

The outdoor space in the back garden is particularly inviting. Because the living area opens up into the garden, the stone flooring actually carries out onto the patio for a unified feel. A unique elevated deck creates a cozy vantage point that is perfect for a late afternoon cocktail, or drying off after a splash in the pool.

Make the kiddos time easier at bedtime by getting your twins, brothers, sisters or the mix a set of bunk beds with stairs! From traditional ladder-types to super artistic and beautiful designs, you’d be surprised how many ways a bunk bed can look, feel and be styled. But not all of these double spots are meant for children, sometimes a nook or cranny can be filled with bunk beds and made for your guests to enjoy or yourself to rest and relax in with a good book during summer afternoons. Let’s have a look at a variety of bunk beds with stairs and see if one strikes your fancy!

blue bunk bed with stairs

We are loving the modern lines of this bunk bed. It definitely strays away from tradition in terms of a child’s bedroom, but it still fits and works within the confines of youthful style. The color works, the contemporary appeal works and the function of the piece works as well. Just make sure your little ones aren’t too little to handle a ladder as such.

built in bunk bed with stairs

How fun and whimsical is this design? Sometimes a bunk bed doesn’t have to be used for two, instead it can be used for one. A bed on top or bottom and the other spot used for playtime! Do you noticed how the stairs leading to the top space resembles that of a tree for a very organic and artistic, yet fairy-tale like experience. What little girl wouldn’t love to have this in her bedroom?

camouflage bunk bed with stairs

If you take away the camo and military decor, you’ll find a very rustic and traditional piece. When you think of bunk beds for your boys, this is the set you’re probably thinking of in your mind. It’s a great choice because you can use this design in almost any room with any theme or vision. It blends well and doesn’t become the focal point of the room, instead it compliment’s the decor.

contemporary bunk beds with stairs

Here’s a great example of a more “grown up” version of a set of bunk beds. It’s perfect for a shared studio apartment or a teen’s space she can use for sleepovers. We love this piece especially because more open feel and modern foundation. It can also easily transform into a variety of different visions for your personal space. For example, a retro take on this selection would be quite fun!

in wall bunk bed with stairs

Bunk beds don’t have to be just two. Just take a look at this fun and playful foursome. Your kiddos and their friends will have such a great time playing and resting in these cubby-like spaces. And we love how the stairs (or short ladder) blends right into the design adding more interest and artistic appeal – as well as function, of course!

large metal bunk bed with stairs

How incredible in this space. Between the beautiful window and natural lighting to the head-to-head bunks, this space was meant for relaxing, vacationing and simply enjoying. The stairs in the center add easy access to the top tier, but the overall design of this nook makes for a great spot in a bonus room or holiday house. Again, it’s perfect for guests as well!

loft bunk bed with stairs

Just like its predecessor, this space is perfect for a vacation home or bonus room turned guest area. The beds are plush and adult-sized, and the large ladder in the middle make for an easy way to get atop – with a rail for extra safety (which we love). This area has a very nautical, summertime feel and the bunks fit right into the vision with ease.

log bunk bed with stairs

Welcome to the rustic, cozy cabin! You can even get custom bunks fit for your mountain-inspired home away from home. The absence of color and emphasis on the wood makes for an easy upkeep and welcoming flair. Although, the chandelier adds a personal touch that would be missing without. And, of course, a organically-styled ladder finishes off the playful, bunk bed feel.

modern bunk bed with stairs

These are definitely not your average bunk beds. Not only does this provide more space and function throughout a smaller room but it’s just a cool way of designing and creating a unique look. You’ll need to make sure these are installed correctly and in the most safe way possible, but you can have a whole lot of fun accessorizing and accenting the beds and the floor beneath!

suspended bunk beds with stairs

Another nautically-themed space is upon us and the bunk beds fit right in. These to are a more “grown-up” version of the typical designs we see for children, but with the rope accent and floating, separated finish, they have a great theme and style all on their own. We also love how this room has taken the trendy charcoal and mustard color pairing and used it to their advantage.

traditional bunk bed with stairs

This is certainly a dream piece, don’t you think? Whether you’ve decided to spoil your little girl with this princess-styled set or you’ll be enjoying it yourself in one nook or cranny of your home, it’s quite a beautiful selection. And we love how the ladder to the top resembles a gorgeous, castle-like staircase. And don’t miss the small little light fixtures adding even more luxury to each bunk.

ultra modern bunk beds with stairs

Here’s a great choice for your smaller ones of the house. Resembling a play area at a playground or fast-food joint, your children will love to have this piece hidden inside their rooms for fun and rest. Make sure they’re big enough to use the stairs to the top with ease and safety, but other than that there’s no doubt your son or daughter won’t enjoy this fun set.

white bunk beds with stairs

Add a bit of  comfort to your bonus room or home office with a set of plush bunk beds. This is a great option for when you need the extra guest space and don’t have the extra room to do it. But it’s also fun for you and the family to have a special area for hanging out with friends and catching up on your favorite books! We love the traditional flavors of this room as well, including that of the bunks!

wide bunk beds with stairs

Here’s another great example of a unique, outside-the-box version of bunk beds. You’ve got a “normal” sized bed below and two guests bunks on top. Whether you’re sharing a studio apartment and decide this works for your trio or you just want the extra beds for when family and friends stop by, this is such a modern and inventive way to utilize your home.

wood bunk bed with stairs

If you’ve got the extra nook or corner, why not utilize it? This rustic, cozy house had the extra room to build so they had custom bunks put in for the kids to enjoy or their family to get comfortable in during the holidays. The foundation of the design blends in with the rest of the home’s charming, cabin-like finish and the built in ladder makes it easy to go up and down without problems.

With nearly 2000 acres of skiable terrain, Beaver Creek Resort in Colorado is one of the most desirable winter recreation areas in the U.S. While condos and hotels abound in the area and in the surrounding mountain regions, there is nothing quite as luxurious as curling up in front of your own private fireplace in a sprawling mountain cabin after a long day on the slopes. Like our recent post featuring a Canadian ski retreat, this Colorado cabin is a far cry from the rustic mountain homes of yore. With five bedrooms and five baths, this Beaver Creek cabin is a beacon of warmth and natural beauty in both the winter and the summer.

The house is one of the original homes in the Beaver Creek area, having been built in 1983 when the resort was much less developed than it is today. The home sits on 1.11 acres and features a number of luxury amenities starting with this gorgeous pitched roof living room.

The natural wood throughout the shared living space gives it a timeless rustic feeling while huge windows give majestic views out into the surrounding forests. The architect has even managed to bring the forest indoors with a large planter featuring trees that stretch up to the vaulted ceilings.

While Colorado and Beaver Creek in particular are certainly winter destinations for ski bunnies and snowboarders, the summers in the Rocky Mountains are also particularly beautiful. A spacious back deck provides the perfect setting for enjoying an al fresco dinner in the cool mountain summers or simple relaxing apre hike on one of the nearby trails. And a hot tub is ideal for any weather.

Mirrors are a necessity in the bathroom, but that doesn’t mean they can’t have a bit of style and pizzazz. Instead of going with simple function, look for mirrors with personality that fit within the theme of the space. From contemporary to Victorian-inspired, there are so many routes to take when deciding on these accents for your newly decorated or renovated bathroom. And that’s why we’ve compiled a quick list of framed bathroom mirrors that show off a variety styles and ways to use them in your personal space. What’s great about all of these choices are that they help transform the room into one’s vision without taking away from the functionality of the piece. Let’s have a look!

 

Amalfi Round framed bathroom mirrors

Modern and chic, this mirror has a geometric theme that is right on trend at the moment. It would look great over a large vanity, in a classic black and white bathroom. Whether it’s the guests’ space or in your own master suite, its big and bold enough to make the statement you need with sophistication and timeless style. And it also acts as a piece of art for the wall!

black modern framed bathroom mirrors

This Victorian-esque mirror matches the rest of the bathroom’s decor seamlessly. With the black and white color combination, the bathroom has a great mix of old-age spirit and contemporary appeal, and the mirror helps to keep that same theme flowing throughout. It has a delicate, yet powerful and feminine flair that works great for the “her” side of the bathroom.

blue glass framed bathroom mirrors

The addition of this chunky, royal blue mirror completely reinvigorates this bathroom. Without that pop of color the space would still be clean and a bit hipster, but with the accent it creates a much more interesting and personalized theme. Of course, any color would have given this bathroom an extra pop of pizzazz such as cherry red or even a bright, mango orange.

brown framed bathroom mirrors

If you have a super spacious bathroom think about using multiple mirrors to fill of the wall. Of course, in this particular vanity area you could choose one, very large mirror but instead three mirrors were chosen to create three separate stations, which is perfect for couples! And this room has a very clean and contemporary feel without too much fluff, perfect for a minimalist.

contemporary framed bathroom mirrors with light

For a more futuristic feel, find a framed mirror with a lighted option. It gives off a great glow and very warm, yet posh finish to the bathroom. We love this look for the guest bathroom as it’s very quaint and sleek. But love even more how this particular mirror is not only functional and stylish but acts as a light source as well – it’ll be a great focal point with all those benefits.

designer framed bathroom mirrors

Here’s another beautiful example of a mirror that can easily act as wall art as well. We love the 3-D element that this particular piece has and it’s powerful, feminine quality wrapped up in the patterned frame. It fits the space well and accents the floating sink without taking away from the modern, “wow” element of the entire bathroom area.

framed bathroom mirrors with backlights

This mirror too has a very futuristic feel. Because of its size, it would be a great addition to a smaller, guest bathroom but also fits well within a master suite that doesn’t have as much of an area flow. In this specific room, the mirror contrasts very well with the black walls and coordinates even better with the white foundation of the sink and shower.

hardwood framed bathroom mirrors

Are you inspired by a more rustic and cozy style? Then look no further! This bathroom has rustic charm built right into its wood accents and foundation. And make sure you pay attention to the vanity’s mirror, framed in wood which matches the cabinets around the space. Although it’s bare of color, this bathroom serves the purpose of creating a very cabin-esque home in every corner.

pink framed bathroom mirror

Here’s another great example of a very feminine design and set of bathroom decor. This can fit right into a master bath that has a lot of extra space but it also serves as a separate vanity area for getting ready in the mornings. This mirror meshes right into the hanging cabinet and desk area with ease and delicate style. The bubblegum pink serves its purpose for creating a more youthful experience – this set would be great for your teen!

round framed bathroom mirror

We love the chicness and simplicity of this space. We also love the mixed material look between the tiled accent wall and wood cabinets. Then add the round, modern mirror and you’ve got a complete and welcoming bathroom for your guests or yourself to enjoy. The blending of interior design themes in this room is unique and gorgeous, and the mirror only helps in the transformation.

white framed bathroom mirrors

This entire room is built of straight lines and a very contemporary feel. But, the white, detailed mirror brings about an extra bit of charm, daintiness an femininity to the space making it a more personalized experience. Of course, it would bode well dipped in a great color like plum or teal, but the white keeps the minimalistic theme while the curling accent gives it an extra bit of personality.

Some people think that white is the absence of color, but it is actually the reflection of all colors. That means when white is used as a major part of any interior, it opens up the whole rainbow for other elements. The apartments in this post are not entirely white, but they use white to create a clean palette on which anyone would be happy to paint their lives. From flat white walls to clean white countertops and luxuriously white furniture, these spaces are an indulgence. Some people might be afraid to track mud into these types of spaces, or send a wine glass spilling onto a creamy white sofa, but that’s what makes these white designs so decadent and so beautiful.

The first space is a Ukrainian apartment, which is actually a detached guest house. The architecture came from the team at Kaeel Group.

The surfaces and angles of this dreamy white and silver apartment are paramount to its overall feel. Something as simple as the metallic coffee table sitting just exactly as high as the soft gray sofa creates long, languorous lines that make the entire space feel open, airy, and comfortable.

Green accents from the wall art to the area rug to various plants sprouting around the space give it a very lively feel. A deep and soft navy blue sofa brings a water element into the sunny space and makes the white walls really pop.

In the dining room, we can again see the impact of light fixtures against a white backdrop. Here, a truly unique sculptural piece hangs over the table in place of a more traditional chandelier. However, the plants on the table and windowsill balance the fixture so it draws the eye without taking over the room.

Quebec’s Mont Saint-Sauveur is one of the most popular ski resorts in the area. But rather than slog up to the mountain in an SUV only to spend the night in an impersonal hotel, wouldn’t you prefer to stay in your own luxury mountain retreat? Set on 11 acres, with ski in/ski out access, this beautiful modern cabin is spacious, cozy, and just as perfect on a wintery night as on a balmy spring morning.

In warmer weather, the outdoor entertaining spaces in this home are unmatched. On the sprawling back deck, simple but modern outdoor furniture offers a comfortable place to curl up with a glass of wine and there is plenty of extra room for larger gatherings as well.

Inside, the same boxy, modern feel dominates the furniture, but does not detract from the massive windows and vaulted ceilings. The open floor plan is enviable, allowing guests to easily roam from a seat in front of the fire (in one of the four fireplaces, of course) to a stool at the gourmet kitchen's breakfast bar.

Brushed nickel is one of the most popular of light fixture styles. It’s versatile as it goes with a variety of interior design themes and looks without being too harsh or overbearing. With its silver sheen, it can easily fit into more modern arrangements and even the most traditional of spaces, which includes in the bathroom, from the large master suite to the guests’ powder room. Let’s have a look at some contemporary bathroom lighting dressed in the trendy and always in style brushed nickel.

Astonishing Crystal Light decorating ideas

A more luxurious and feminine design, these light fixtures round out this contemporary yet lush space quite well. They provide the right amount of light without overpowering or becoming too harsh for its more sultry of styles. The sconces on the sides of the mirror also help to balance out the vanity with traditional ease.

Bathroom Light Fixtures

Here’s a simple, contemporary fixture that matches its surroundings with ease and simplicity. A three-pronged choice is one of the more traditional of styles but it also works great at a vanity setting so you get the right amount of lighting for your morning “getting ready” routines. We also love how these blend into the wall and the rest of the very clean-lined decor of the room.

Bathroom Lighting Design Ideas

This space has ceiling spotlights, natural lighting from a corner window and the usual sconces atop the vanity mirror. All of them are more functional than stylish but we love how they blend in and don’t make a scene within this very modern and zen bathroom. The brushed nickel finish helps to hide and keep everything simplified.

For a more traditional bathroom, you’ll need more traditional light fixtures. And the ones that surround the vanity bring about the right amount of soft lighting and style you need to make this space complete. Again, the nickel finish helps to blend instead of overpower or draw the eye, especially with the addition of the window in the corner giving off gorgeous, natural lighting throughout the day.

bathroom wall lighting ideas

These are more modern and fashion-forward pieces. But it works within the space since this vanity area has a very futuristic and posh essence. During the day you won’t need a lot of light since the sink looks right out into the backyard with the option for sunlight. But at night a bit of warm, soft lighting will help to keep the bathroom welcoming instead of too harsh.

Contemporary bathroom lighting  in brushed nickel

Here’s another three-pronged, brushed-nickel choice that has a more delicate and dainty feel. Which fits into this modern, yet feminine vanity space. This is a gorgeous setting for your master bathroom with the marble finish. But, as we pay attention to the light fixture, notice how again, they blend and create a balance unlike that of gold, copper or even black dressings.

contemporary nickel wall sconces

Are these fixtures not gorgeous? They’re super modern and act almost as pieces of art for the bathroom as well as functional pieces for the space. Since this is another zen area, these lights fit right into the easy, organic overall style. They’re slender and they don’t take up a lot of space but they do help to transform this simple room into something with a special feel as the nickel finish doesn’t take away from the design.

large bathroom lighting ideas

These are more gorgeous examples of ultra modern light fixtures that are finished in a sleek, brushed-nickel. They blend well within this sleek and chic bathroom but they also create a statement all their own with their unique shape and bright, golden lighting. But notice the ceiling lights as well that give an even better glow when you need some extra oomph.

master bathroom ceiling lights

This entire bathroom is lit with ceiling lights that are surrounding by a thing, brushed-nickel finish. This is perfect for a space that you need great lighting but you don’t need the extra bulk or distraction of large fixtures. These type of lights are blendable on their own, but their finish needs to be able to mesh and hideaway with ease as well.

Modern bathroom ceiling lights

The vanity lighting is very similar to a couple of the modern designs we have shown above, but we also have to point out the gorgeous, chandelier-like fixture in the center of the space overlooking the beautiful, illusion tub. It gives the space a hint of femininity but also a very lush and chic style.

modern bathroom lighting design ideas

We are swooning over this small, simple and flowing fixture. It has movement and design-worth all on its own in its very compact frame. Again, this bathroom doesn’t need a ton of lighting for the daytime as it has a window that gives off natural sunlight. But it still needs something around the vanity to deal with everyday functions and this piece does the trick!

simple bathroom brushed nickel lights

Can you spot the lights in this space? Although you don’t need them on during the day, you’ll need some type of soft glow for the nighttime and these small, brushed options are the perfect choice. They don’t stray away from the minimalistic theme but they still provide the right amount of function and contemporary style this bathroom needs to maintain its vision.

wall light ideas for bathrooms

Don’t be scared of choosing light fixtures that are a bit funky. The brushed-nickel finish will keep them toned down and out of the main focus, but it’s okay to go with a choice that may seem a bit outside-the-box. Like these sconce lights for example, with their wrap-around detail and architectural foundation, they provide a bit of art and interest to the walls.

Designing a home for a creative person can be an exciting challenge. Artists, writers, and creators have their own tastes and ideas about how their homes should look and feel which can provide helpful guidance as well as welcome freedom to the designer. The two homes in this post take that creative spirit and run with it. Each includes numerous clever and whimsical nods to creativity from the art on the walls to way that light interacts with the rooms. Take a look inside these sleek apartments and get your own creative juices flowing.

The first creative apartment for a creative person comes from the design and architecture team at NORDES Design Group. At first glance, the cheeky superhero painting in the living room draws the eye entirely. This boldly colored piece is allowed to stand out because so much of the color scheme is neutral gray and white.

A home projection system is an ideal media solution in an artist's apartment because it allows for the consumption of even more types of whimsical art - such as The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou as seen here - but doesn't require a television, which can detract from the overall style of a room.

The second apartment comes from the architects at Unikat Lab and bring a bit more color, overall, to its design.

A boldly designer graphic print of a hand has an almost unfinished quality about it, which can be particularly attractive and inspiring to the creative mind.

Color is an essential element of any design aesthetic, but in the bedroom texture may be even more important. Clean lines can go a long way towards creating a comforting atmosphere, but do little in the way of comfort if they are hard, rough, or sharp. Instead, bedrooms should be made of plenty of soft textures that can move, shift, and provide physical as well as aesthetic comfort. The bedrooms covered in this post are not just beautiful to look at, but use soft, sensual textures that would be perfect for touching, snuggling, and getting wrapped up in at the end of a long day.

The first bedroom in this post, from designer Mário Nogueira, is actually a small studio apartment in a downstairs, garden-level space. The space is decorated with largely neutral colors and natural elements including smooth, lovely wood. The overhead lighting element is particularly unusual and noteworthy. The smooth floors and soft area rug under the bed are ideal for bare feet and perfect, therefore, in a bedroom.

The next space, rather than a beige and oatmeal color theme, uses cool gray blues for its palette. Like the first room, it uses a soft area rug to create an inviting space around the bed along with cozy blue blankets that can make you feel like you're wrapped in your own raincloud.

The third bedroom gets a bit more creative in terms of color. The eye cannot turn away from the luxurious purple velvet sofa at the end of the bed. Both the color and the texture are a perfect central element for a beautiful bedroom. Another soft rug and even the cool smooth glass of the brass coffee tables create a fully realized vision of touch and texture.

The next bedroom from designer Hüseyin Sedef uses, understandably, the bed as its focal point.

This room also features a luxurious ensuite bath that includes a massive private whirlpool and a waterfall inspired shower. On the other side of the bed's canopy is a lovely little vanity area.

Whether it’s indoors or outdoors, contemporary or casual, colorful or dressed in neutrals, hanging chairs can be such a great addition to any space of the house. They create a more warm and welcoming ambiance, and when woven in style and made of wicker parts, you’ll get a subtle and relaxed piece of furniture. From your patio just outside the backdoor or in your home office, these wicker hanging chairs ideas and designs can become an easy part of your home’s decor. Let’s have a peek at some fun and stylish selections that we found and felt needed to be featured!

black-hanging-chair-for-outdoors

Here’s a standalone option that works great outside. It will work in pairs near the fire pit in the backyard or work as a singular chair near the pool or outdoor kitchen. It’s a neutral piece so you can dress it up in colors with the addition of a throw pillow – and keep it seasonal by just changing out those types of necessities as the year moves on.

contemporary-wicker-chair-design

This piece reminds us a bit of a birdcage that’s been cut in half. We imagine this chair is a bit more comfortable and the kids will love it’s extra concaved design for a more cozy feel. Again, you can throw some pillows or blankets inside for a welcoming style or to add some color – and this chair in particular acts as a focal point to the room as well as a functional choice.

double-indoor-hanging-chair

This is almost like a hanging love seat. It’s a natural color so it will blend into almost any setting and it also has a clean shape so that it can be versatile enough to be used indoors or outdoors. We feel it needs some vibrancy to brighten up the organic nature, so the addition of some plush red pillows or even a creamy blanket could really add some personality.

double-wicker-hanging-chair

Here’s another standalone piece that doesn’t need a ceiling to be hung. We love this choice because it’s hard to mess up the setup – as when you’re hanging a chair from the ceiling it really needs to be secure for safety and cosmetic reasons. This is a wider choice so two people can fit snugly inside enjoying the outdoor weather or even a romantic evening by the fire pit.

modern-rattan-garden-hanging-chair

Isn’t this hanging chair absolutely charming? It’s the perfect choice for your poolside style and to add a bit of freshness and fun to your outdoor escape at home. You’ll be turning your home life into something much more luxurious and vacation-like in feel when you add a piece like this to your setup. The flower detail and bit of color really make this an inviting and refreshing piece.

modern-wicker-hanging-chair

We feel as though this hanging chair is the perfect choice for when you want to create a reading nook or relaxing corner in your home. The plushness of the cushions add an inviting and warm air, but the neutral tones and solid foundation also add a sense of security you need when you just want to clear your head and relax.

 

outdoor-wicker-hanging-chair

This choice is a bit more unique than its predecessors. It’s more for lounging and looking than cuddling up for a good read, but we love its slick design and more modern take on the casual wicker style. We also want to point out the addition of the colorful, plum cushion which adds another dimension and more of a personal touch to the piece.

rattan-bird-nest-outdoor-casual-hanging-chair

A personal favorite from the entire list, this white wicker chair is quite beautiful. The white tone makes it a more fashion-forward and contemporary choice, as does the green apple cushion that fits snugly inside adding a welcoming flair. Although it’s set outside, we feel as though this chair would look even better sitting inside your home office or even in your open bonus room or living area.

Rattan-indoor-outdoor-bird-nest-chair
Sitting up a bit higher than some other choices, this piece has a funkier shape that we find quite intriguing. Again, the colored cushion adds more personality and style than by leaving it purely neutral. The contrast between the black and green also make for a refreshing and modern vibe rather than a natural shading or lighter shade.

wicker hanging chairs

Although at first glance this chair doesn’t look like it’s actually hanging, it is in the space provided. The foundation of this piece gives it a very modern, architectural style which is perfect for indoors if you’re looking for something more unique to fit a bare space. But it also works outside to help you create a funky and contemporary place to enjoy your backyard.

wonderful-wicker-hanging-chair-with-metal-base

Similar to some of the choices above, this piece has a more masculine vibe with its purely midnight black dressing. Again, these standalone hanging chairs work great on their own but they also do well in groups or pairs when placed around the patio or even besides the pool area. Of course, a pop of cherry red or mango orange would jazz this piece up just the way we like it!

The first apartment comes to us from designer Yarovikova Anna and was designed with the needs of a modern life in mind. Bright light filters into the home from multiple windows, but it comes through simple, neutral curtains that use their vertical folds to add height to the ceiling and the room.

Though the space is largely white, it does not hesitate to use playful color options to create a more youthful vibrance. Most notable, perhaps, is the living room accent wall. Brightly colored stripes in varying widths are immediately cheering and the diversity of colors means that at any point the occupant could choose one to play up with accessories, new furnishings or something as simple as rug.

If you’re thinking about renovating your closet or even doing a be of reorganizing, look no further for ideas and inspiration. Today, we’ve compiled a list of custom closet design ideas that will get your wheels turning and help you envision exactly what you may want or need in your own space. From traditional styles to nooks and crannies that you may have not thought to use before, let’s have a peek at some creative pictures and ways to design your closet and tidy up!

 

bedroom-closet-ideas

Here is a great example of a traditional style with a lot of space to work with and organize. The dark cabinet choice helps to blend and maintain that contemporary appeal. But this only works if have the space to make it work as these tones will just make a room – or closet – look and feel smaller.

brown-large-closet-design

Spacious and luxurious, this smooth, chocolate closet has so much room to spread out and utilize. All of the open shelving helps to keep a more lively and roomy edge as well, which is helpful when using darker colors. Even though this closet is large, it still needs help maintaining a widespread look and feel.

custom closet design

Are you not loving this space? It’s not necessarily a closet but a corner turned into a “dressing” space. The window above helps create light and space, making the nook look larger. But all the cubbies, drawers and hanging rods are strategically designed and placed for the best efficiency possible.

classic-italian-walk-in-closet-design

This is a great example of a closet system made for simplicity and solid organization. If you don’t need an abundance of space or you aren’t sharing the closet with a significant other, this is a great way to utilize your area with ease and traditional vision. Although, this nook has a bit of an Asian- zen vibe that we’re really loving.

??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

This light beige closet looks bigger and better with its tone choice and natural lighting nearby. There are so many great ways to utilize this closet system with its drawers, shelves and compartments. It’s such a great space for organizing and finding what you need in a rush. But, overall, the actual design of this closet is quite beautiful.

Closet-Ideas-with-Chandelier

Sometimes we’re lucky enough to not just have a closet or a corner, but we get to have an entire room. From the shelves for shoes to the spiral coat rack in the corner, this walk-in (or room) closet is one to swoon over. The white and silver combination keeps the space fresh and spacious in feel, and notice the drawers to the right with windows – making it even easier to find your favorite sweater in a pinch.

Here’s another walk-in closet but without so much excess space to play with. Instead, it has a bit of tunnel vision but with a lot of room to work with when it comes to figuring out how many hanging spots, drawers and cabinets are needed. The pouf in the center serves as an easy spot to take your heels on and off at and the cabinets in the back make for a great area for holding jewelry or other small accessories.

Slick and posh, here’s a closet that screams bachelor pad and contemporary, modern-loving style. Black and charcoal layers round out this room as do the hidden drawers and shelves waiting to be organized and tucked away. Again, this is a room and not necessarily a “closet,” so it’s a bit more luxurious than what the average-person is used to, but you can still grab some fashion-forward ideas from taking a peek!

Glass doors and fabric additions for a incredibly whimsical and romantic essence, this closet is more than just a space to organize your clothes but it’s a stylish piece of the house all on its own. Although it’s very contemporary and chic, this space has a lot of feminine and soft quality about it. We also love the open-shelving throughout the entire design as it gives a more spacious appeal.

Although we can’t see right inside of the doors, we had to show off this beautiful closet. With mirrors all around the room looks even bigger and more luxurious. The island in the center will help with accessorizing and keeping your undergarments handy and organized. And don’t forget to notice the ladder in the corner, meant to get to the cabinet up top – great for holding seasonal or specialty items that you don’t need all year long.

Luxury-Walk-In-vanity-storage

Here’s a smaller nook that quite quaint and charming. First of all, we are loving the vanity section designed right into the system. And then there’s the highlighting on some of your favorite heels – what woman wouldn’t love to have that in their closet? Of course this is a smaller closet, but not all of us need an entire room to hold our clothes and accessories.

Vibrant and traditional in color and style, this is a closet that would fit into so many different homes and people’s lives. It’s a good space for sharing and a great space for keeping your clothes tidy and find-able. There’s space for suit separates, drawers for personals and some open shelving to hold purses and hats that you’ll need to grab in a quick pinch.

Modern-walk-in-closet-for-Mansions

Here’s a beautiful, contemporary closet that is perfect for sharing and filling up with lots of great items. Two islands make it easier for those closet’s that need room for two. It’s a great place to hold your jewelry and undergarments without taking up space in the bedroom. But notice all the drawers, shelving and hanging areas in this closet. We love the utilization of every nook and cranny of the room!

Have we mentioned before how much we love natural lighting? It can turn a room into something so much more special just by the sun coming up. Without this window, this closet would be a lot darker and look and feel a lot smaller. But with it (and notice the fabric curtain to give privacy in a romantic and feminine way) you get a more vibrant and lively room.

What we love best about this closet and what we’d like to point out first are the extra lights in the shelves and hanging areas. This is most needed because the closet is quite dark, and without them you’ll have a harder time finding particular items (especially when you’re trying to distinguish from navy and black!).

While the thought of exposed brick might call to mind a hole-in-the-wall Italian bistro, there are a lot of ways that this classic look can be incorporated into a modern space. The five homes in this post range from the dark and sleek to sunny and welcoming but each uses the unique texture and feel of exposed brick to create a space that’s truly special.

The first home we are featuring is a residence local in Prague, from designer Angelina Alekseeva. Unlike some spaces that leave just one wall in exposed brick for effect, this one keeps the rough red bricks out in the open on multiple walls. The look contrasts with the smooth, finished wood floors and highly modern furnishings for a trendy 'unfinished' feel.

The softness of the neutral furniture and the hard walls and floors makes it that much easier to settle in on the sofa or the cozy built in seating next to the indoor fire pit.

The second home is from designer Howard Chu and uses a few different tactics to incorporate bare brick, including one accent wall with the drywall broken away for precisely that Italian bistro look we spoke of earlier.

The brick carries over very successfully into the home office area that features chevron striped hardwood flooring. There is no better pairing, it seems, then hardwood flooring and exposed red bricks.

The rest of the home is noticeably smooth, from hardware-less cabinetry to sleek track lighting and glistening granite countertops.

Our third example comes from designer Elena Arsenteva. It's not too difficult to draw some parallels between this space and the first one we saw. Both feature soft gray furnishings and smooth, light wood floors along with exposed brick accents. This apartment, however, has a much more industrial loft feel, with none of the luxury trappings of the first option, just a simple kitchen and cozy living room.

For a bit more vibrancy, we can turn to this fourth dwelling from designer and architect Vladimir Bolotkin. The red accents really bring the warm industrial vibe in this apartment to life. The same can be said for the creatively textured area rug and pops of yellow in the furniture.

The floating bookshelves, which look like little more than precariously stacked books against the wall, cannot go unnoticed here.

The exposed brick in the modern bathroom is subtle but extremely effective in giving the area a little push towards old world charm and keeping it from feeling too minimalist.

The fifth and final apartment makes much more polished use of exposed brick. The accent wall in the living room is yes, unfinished, but the brick is perfectly even and smooth, making it sleek yet textured.
