In the previous post I guided you to a New York concept loft, Witness Apartment that is utilised in various creative ways. Today – as promised earlier – I would like to show you another wonderful concept loft. The talented team of The Playing Circle is constantly on the hunt for exceptional artists and craftsmen to bring their finest creations to a unique loft space in the Dutch capital.  Tomorrow is a big day for them, as they are opening the forth edition of The Loft  – again with a carefully curated, refined furnishing. The Loft will be open from the 14th till the 22nd of January 2017, so for those lucky ones of you who are based in Amsterdam or visiting the city these days, I highly recommend to check out this inspiring space at Vijzelstraat 77 III, 1017 HG Amsterdam. (You can see more information about the event on Facebook.)

When writing the previous post I found out about a unique concept loft in New York City that I wanted to present you, because I was pretty sure you would love it.

One year, four transformations, one space reimagined. Witness Apartment is an extraordinary two-bedroom loft in the very heart of New York City which gives the opportunity to one interior designer every three months to fully redesign it, bring in their own style, vision and team up with emerging industrial designers and established furniture brands to fill this huge space. The 2000 square foot concept loft serves as a canvas for exploration for our digital network and project partners, and provides visitors with valuable ideas and inspiration. It is also possible to purchase our favorite piece of design and art. Continue Reading

New York, New York…

I haven’t written any posts for quite a while as the past few months have been very busy and hectic but in a good way. I spent a couple of months in London, than in Budapest, than in London again, I became a graphic designer (yay!) and have been working on various exciting graphic design projects. I’ve been missing this blog a lot but I just couldn’t find enough time until now.

I hope that even after this long break you’ll still enjoy reading eszterieur.com.

In the last post I showed you a quick and easy DIY idea: decorating any spaces with washi tape. The picture with skyscrapers on it made me think of NYC so I decided to dedicate this post to New York: inspiration, apartments and little NY themed home decor pieces.

Today I would like to show you a super-cheap way to decorate and revitalize any space of your home: washi tape. With this material you can make a real difference in a room in only a few minutes. You only need to buy enough rolls, have to plan the shapes ahead or do it in a spontaneous way if you are brave and talented enough. In my opinion the most stylish color is black – of course! – but you can purchase the tape in various colors.

Inspiring work spaces

8a1695bdb1050fca4ae1a511ceb2e9b9

 

Like I anticipated in the last post, today I bring you some work space inspiration.

Work spaces have to enable you to get inspired, be focused and sit comfortably for hours. They have to be personal and cosy so that you like working there but they mustn’t detract your attention. Creating the ideal workstation or home office is a relatively challenging task. Not only because many times people don’t have enough space for it in their homes, but also because one has to take into consideration a lot of factors, such as lights, windows, noise, other everyday activities done in the same room, etc.

Grey Bedroom Walls

j.d. bedroom

Choosing to paint walls gray in a bedroom is not a very common idea and one can be surprised hearing about it. The general assumption might be that gray in a bedroom makes the atmosphere sad and depressing. However, there are many ways to create a fantastic mood with such a brave choice and the result can be an enviably stylish and elegant bedroom. In this post, I will show you how to achieve different, but equally adorable effects and moods in gray-wall bedrooms.

I’ve been sitting in hot spell for a few days now, so after writing the previous post about that fantastic house in California with that stunning terrace, I started daydreaming of fabulous covered terraces like theirs. Today, I brought a careful selection of wonderful, peaceful and literally cool terraces that will surely carry you away – no matter where you are reading this blog post right now.

Here you will find various styles of terraces, with different furnitures, plants, and flowers, their sizes also vary, but some things are true for all of them: they are intimate, relaxing and resourcing + their owners are very very lucky people!

Best of Eero Saarinen

bff466b2bee98973bea41a3bb9abd85d

 

Finnish American Eero Saarinen (1910- 1961) is one of the most famous architects and industrial designers of the 20th century. The simple, sweeping, arching structural curves characterizing his pieces cannot be mistaken for anything else. Even though he was a great architect as well, Saarinen is mostly known for his iconic furnitures. The most popular ones were “Womb” chair and ottoman (from 1948), the “Womb” settee (from 1950), side- and armchairs (from 1948–1950), and of course the “Tulip” or “Pedestal” group (from 1956), which featured side- and armchairs, dining, coffee and side tables, as well as stool. All of his chairs are produced by Knoll furniture company, founded by Hans Knoll (who married by the way Saarinen family friend Florence (Schust) Knoll).

When I found those nice Saarinen redo-s on Chairloom’s website while writing the previous post (see the image below) I knew I would dedicate this post to him, because I admire his oeuvre so much.

Blush + Copper

bc

 

We’ve seen the importance of metallic colour tones in modern design rising in the past few years, and within this phenomenon the trend for copper starting for a bit more than two years now. This year the trend has just skyrocketed, you cannot miss seeing some copper in every single vitrine of design shops.

Also almost every design magazine mentioned in their recent issues that Dulux Colour of the Year for 2015 is ‘Copper Blush’. This colour has depth, warmth, and it’s simply surprising, it’s a beautiful element of the natural palette of the earth.

Copper combines perfectly with pinks, neutrals, whites and other orange hues, as well as with greens – let it be a plant or some cool mint.

The colour combo copper and blush is currently one of my favorites. Different blush colours in perfect harmony with copper tones – It is romantic yet foxy and hot. I absolutely adore it! Continue Reading

Inspiration from the Nature – Flamingos

When lacking ideas, a lot of interior designers turn to design galleries to find inspiration. Not only because taking ideas out from similar media, there’s a fine line between “inspired by” and “copied”; but also because going back to nature is always a good (better) choice, I would like to show you from time to time how Mother Nature can inspire us when designing interiors.  Continue Reading
