Beautiful Kitchen Design

With roots in Scandinavian design, Nordiska Kök designs beautiful minimalist kitchens to live in, unique and tailor-made to suit your life, today and tomorrow. Creators of tailor-made kitchens, the company offers unique solutions to suit different lifestyles. Built with longevity in mind, the kitchens are not only designed to last, they also leave the lightest possible footprint on world resources. I am immediately drawn to its warm inviting palette, mix of natural materials and interesting textures. Nordiska Kök crated this beautiful, classic Shaker kitchen with a Scandinavian touch, it fits like a dream inside of the century apartment,  located in the popular Copenhagen district of Frederiksberg.

The spacious kitchen reflects the quality craftsmanship and clean lines that is synonymous with the Shaker movement. Together with the apartment’s preserved detailing, including the flooring and ceiling stucco, the overall look is truly timeless. Soft grey tones and beautiful Emperador marble counter tops compliment the warm wood flooring, while luxurious handles by The Brandt provide a contemporary edge.

3Staying true to the minimalist aesthetic of the space, the decision not to cover the entire wall with cupboards is also in keeping with the style of Shaker kitchens. The kitchen demonstrates beautiful attention to detail, as can be seen inside the cabinets and drawers, which feature a warm white pigmented oak.

The kitchen island not only grounds the space and makes the room dynamic, it adds functionality and plenty of storage. As the heart of the kitchen, it also provides the perfect place for friends and family to gather.

Beautiful Apartment Renovation in Milan

All’Arco by Tommaso Giunchi + Atelierzero
All’Arco is a minimal 19th-century apartment located in Milan, Italy, designed by Atelierzero + Tommaso Giunchi. The main goal was the creation of an apartment in which a contemporary approach could fit within the unique soul of the original space. The internal distribution has undergone some changes to meet the needs of the new tenants, a couple with two children, who often love to host friends and family at home. The dining room and the living room, initially divided by an internal wall, have been united, creating a single vast space, defined by calm green light color.

The prominent feature of the apartment is its long hallway, a large distribution space that connects the living and sleeping areas, creating fascinating perspectives throughout the space. Here, the original and diverse floors have been removed and replaced with a continuous surface of contemporary cement tiles, which, referring to the traditional Milanese ones, give a touch of contemporaneity thanks to their geometric design. The main bathroom has undergone the most important renovation, combining travertine details with Moroccan design tiles, which juxtapose the flooring of the corridor.

The existing most defining design elements, such as wooden doors and their decorative details, classic stucco ceilings, and elegant wooden floors, have been maintained, offering a counterpart to the contemporary materials, finishes, and colors of the project. Besides allowing a sense of continuity to the renovation process, this also provides contrast with the juxtaposed new elements.

Beautiful Airbnb in Philadelphia

If you are looking for an Airbnb stay in Philadelphia here’s your answer. I am swooning over the old world charm of this place; I could live here much less stay here temporarily. Not sure what I need to go to Philly for but this would be a good enough reason. BTW there is no television, but who needs a TV when you are surrounded by beauty. This unique Rittenhouse gem was renovated by Tara and Percy of Jersey Ice Cream Co.  Book it here.

Beautiful Scandinavian Design

I am so enamored by this this classic Scandinavian apartment belonging to designer Hanne Bloch featured on Bo Bedre. The mix of mid century furniture, rustic materials and design simplicity blends so beautifully together. The Serge Moille lighting fixtures, the classic white tufted mid-century modern lounger, the Eames dining chairs — all of it works perfectly together. And the dark stained hardwood floors work sets everything off perfectly!

Beautiful Blue

I’m a total fan of blue lately, the deeper and more saturated the better.
I especially like the playful nature of this kitchen back splash.

Beautiful Apartment Tour

Retired geography professor and avid world traveler
Bill Shumaker has amassed an eclectic collection of
art and artifacts from every corner of the globe.
Shumaker, who lives on the bottom two floors
of a 19th-century brownstone he purchased in
the early 1970s, has adorned his 2,400 sq. ft.
space with mementos that remind him of
international journeys and friends.
Everything in the house has a personal
connection. I love the car door idea.

bill car door
The bathroom is full of car door pictures, a collection
that started when a visiting friend found a mustang door
on his stoop and decided to sketch it.  From then on it
was required that Bill’s house guests sketch, paint, sculpt,
photograph etc the door, which itself hangs in the bathroom.
