Classic White Interior Kitchen Design

Posted: 14 Jun 2011 10:17 AM PDT

Vibrant, crisp, clean and sharp: A kitchen with white interior design is undoubtedly an ideal setting irrespective of the fact, whether you prefer contemporary or classic, rustic or urbane.  The use of white color does not only make the area airier and bigger, but also provide a clean canvas to efficiently showcase other relevant elements in order to create a functional, enchanting and inviting kitchen. Printed fabrics appear more vibrant, wood finishes appear rich against white, and the lighting fixtures such as pendants and chandeliers are allowed to stand out as a focal point of the room against the neutral white backdrop.

As white is a neutral cool shade, there is oodles of decorating designs for decorating the kitchen with the shade ranging between contemporary and classic.

There is nothing as elegant as dressing the entire kitchen in the white shade. Some people find the look to be sterile, but this is not the case. A kitchen can be easily designed in complete white by playing with textures or designs and completely avoiding colors. For instance, you may choose pristine white tiles featuring raised or deep designs for the backsplash area. White net curtains with intricate laces, clear glass or frosted cabinet doors, and a self designed china collection displayed on the shelves will lend a lot of character to the space. Alternatively, you may also employ different shades of white such as off-white, cream and ivory for accessories and linens.

Another impressive white interior design for the kitchen is to use the theme – black and white. Stainless steel appliances and silver accents can be used to make the room dramatic. Check board patterned tiles may be used for the backsplash area as well as the floors. Black and white photographs and white roses in black vases can be used to highlight the theme further and make the room inviting. As lighting plays a major role in interior design, it should be optimally involved. Black or Silver crystal pendants and chandeliers will jazz up the décor.

White interior designs also look good when blended with one accent color. Pink, purple, red and green are few options that may be selected. The accent color can be easily introduced in the room by way of decorative accessories, linens, fabrics, towels and other types of art work.

3D furniture collection by Martin Gallagher

Posted: 14 Jun 2011 08:12 AM PDT

Nowadays almost all new movies are 3D. It's an invasion! It's become such a common detail that people have started coming up with all sorts of 3D designs. For example here's a furniture collection actually called "3D". It's been designed by Martin Gallagher and it's a very modern furniture collection.

The 3D collection includes a very beautiful and versatile coffee table and 3 stools that share the same design and characteristics. The most beautiful thing about this collection is that it's both good-looking and very functional and versatile. For example, it even allows you to adjust the height and overall scale by simply removing or adding plywood layers. However, only the coffee table has this characteristic. This doesn't mean that the stools are less functional. In fact, each stool can also act as a very good side table. Moreover, the stool upholstery is available is a large variety of different colors. This allows you to choose a vibrant color to spice up the décor or maybe a more quiet tone to match with the rest of your furniture.

Regardless of the color you choose, this collection looks equally elegant and stylish. And in case you were worried about the space, you should observe that the design of the coffee table allows you to simply add the stools like puzzle pieces in order to save some space.

How to Park a Ferrari in Your Living room

Posted: 14 Jun 2011 07:35 AM PDT

I am sure you all know that Ferrari cars are expensive and really beautiful and men who own one of these babies are so proud that they cannot stay away from them, so some of them do their best to make this possible. So they invent way of having their car next to them all the time, literally.

One of these crazy guys is the steel worker Jon Ryder from Sheffield, England who has parked his yellow Ferrari in the living room. His F355 Spider is his pride and he parks it into the  garage that communicates with his living room. When he has guests he uses a curtain to hide the garage door and he can use his living room as display, too.

As you can imagine, this decision lead to some drastic changes in the look and functionality of his house. He had to demolish some walls and link the garage to the living room and also to use some flooring that is perfect for cars and not for normal houses. Jon spent one month and £900 to finish all the changes in his house, but he is very satisfied with the results. Of course, he’s not the only one to ever do such a thing, the best example being some guy called Gil Dezer who had hung a 1950 Porsche Spyder 550 in his living room.{found on swns}

Inspiring Painted Coastal Life Outdoor Pillows

Posted: 14 Jun 2011 04:45 AM PDT

Gold… Money… Ransom… I wonder how I could resist on an agitated sea, on a sailboat, surrounded by experienced pirates.I could spend my life near them. My life would be a permanent adventure where danger would be present every second of each day.

I look into the night and I think of the next robbery that we intend to do. The far away lighthouse shows us that we are close to the shore. Morning is coming and the seagulls fly over our sailboat. A new day is waiting for us. I look at them, at my unshaved, giddy after drinking and tired pirates and I wonder if tomorrow, in the morning we are all present or some of us will die in the fight that waits for us today.

It is time that we make our attacking plan. I call my first mate and I tell him: "It is time…It is time…" "That you wake up John!"

I open my eyes… I am on my lounge, with my head on the pillow with the sailboat print on it. On the left, there is my pillow with the image of a seagull and on the right the pillow with the lighthouse. They are my favorite inspiring Painted Coastal Life Outdoor Pillows which make me think of wonderful adventures.Available from 16.86 euros.In front of me, there is my wife who tells me: "Did you watch "The Caribbean Pirates" again last night? And now you think you are Jack Sparrow?

Tiger Woods Mansion in Florida

Posted: 14 Jun 2011 02:31 AM PDT

People grow in number constantly, but the land available remains the same, so it’s only natural to be more and more expensive, especially in the areas where the demand is bigger like in or near large cities and in such nice places like Florida for example. So if you buy a property there, you can be sure it will be worth more in time.

Let’s take a look at the mansion Tiger Woods bought there in 2006 for $44.5 million and which is now estimated at $60 million. It’s also true that he invested a lot of money in it and rebuilt and redesigned it, so it’s basically a new one nowadays.

So what makes a 100 square feet mansion worth so much money? Well, it comes with a lot of specially designed places for a sportsperson like Tiger Woods, for example a tennis court, a gym, a diving pool, a lap lane and a 100-foot running track.

The basement is large enough to house a cellar and a cinema and the four buildings around the main house include a boathouse, golf training studio, a stand-alone garage and a big guesthouse. If you add the magnificent view to the Atlantic Ocean then you will certainly agree with those estimating the property Tiger Woods is about to move to.{found on dailymail}

An Ideal Brazilian Penthouse Interior by Studio Guilherme Torres

Posted: 13 Jun 2011 10:10 PM PDT

The penthouse I am referring to is that special apartment on the top floor of a building and nothing else you might think of… it is the best example of a penthouse apartment interior designed by Studio Guilherme Torres and it is located in Sao Paolo, Brazil. Once you have seen the image of this apartment, you understand the need of having such a wide, contemporary apartment. It is the most appropriate place where you can relax and receive your friends.

It gives the impression of new, wide, natural. Among the most impressive elements, beside the wide space it covers, there is the huge modern bookshelf that surrounds the entire room. It comprises books, different collections and also electronic devices; its natural aspect is given by the material, as it is made of oak. As the majority of the living rooms, it has the kitchen integrated, with its wide table and modern chairs. A good impression is also given by the fact that the furniture is natural and every book and device on the shelves has its own place and is well-organized and this makes the atmosphere welcoming, even cosy.

The wide windows make the entire house seem ever wider and make you feel at ease. The tables and the chairs are colorful and provide the perfect place to entertain your guests, either with a coffee, a tea or even a party. No other house seems to be more appropriate for your family or your friends, no matter you have a party or just drink a coffee with them.
