There are several wooden elements that may be constructed and disassembled as you like and a lamp core inside. Start from the classical lampshade and play with the opportunities. Create different shapes of the holes – this is a constantly changing object of nature. This lamp inspires for creations and different ideas that you can easily realize of these wooden pieces; this piece would be also great for your kids – they would be excited to change it all the time!
Designer Amanda Nisbet is very good at combining colors and fashionable tendencies with classical ideas. Classics by Amanda looks non-standard, non-traditional and special. Look at this bedroom, it’s a real source of inspiration! The colors are cold pink, many shades of brown, white and a drop of black. The style chosen is classical but the accessories and touches are glam! Look at the elegant fireplace with armchairs that make the room inviting, soft voluminous bed head and dramatic colors and textures – they look fantastic and give the room a special charm. The atmosphere is calm, cozy and harmonious – as it should be in a bedroom – but the design is peculiar and cool! Do you agree?
Pure minimalism, beauty and wonderful nature views – these words characterize the Carling Residence in Northern Muskoka, Georgian Bay in Ontario, Canada, best of all. Tact Architecture created this place for a young couple and it was designed as a refuge, as a place where they could get away and hide in this beautiful home in the middle of nature. White, natural wood and magnificent views together with ultra-minimalist design create an impression of a SPA resort; even the master’s bathroom was made so that you could enjoy the spectacular views through the window. The nature outside was integrated into the interiors and added more life to its elegance.
It only makes sense that a company devoted to the gorgeous art of mosaic tiles that are primarily used in wet spaces would transcend the tile world to expand into the stylings and product lines of bathroom design. Bisazza is doing just that with their ‘Bagno’ division; and what better way to kick things off than with the amazingly talented designer Marcel Wanders?
He’s done some great works as the founder for his company “Moooi” and he’s got a beautiful aesthetic that would complement some of Bisazza’s fine tile mosaics perfectly.
Their collaboration together is simply perfect. A striking balance between contemporary and traditional period pieces, with rounded elements in either glossy white or lacquered black, with pops of red on handles and small pieces of importance.
Marcel seamlessly integrates storage elements within the full height mirrors and shows off intricate baroque carvings into a few of the mirrors, too. The tub and sinks are a great contrast to the carved pieces, boasting rounded edges and slight curvature.
Marcel had this to say about his exciting collection with the Italian company:
“The collection derives its original concept from a fantasy of mine, taking a bath immersed in soap: the apotheosis of clean! [...] The idea of presenting different periods in a single collection comes from one of my beliefs: people have two opposing forces within them, one towards an eternal dimension where things last over time, the other towards change. In my design I oscillate and move between these two poles, the old and the new, reassurance and innovation. I believe it is an answer to a very human feeling. The Wanders Collection reflects precisely this duality.”
