Sometimes we take life way too seriously, but living with art definitely helps take that edge off! Designer Ghislaine Vinas worked with the owners of this 15,000 square foot Tribeca warehouse to turn it into a masterpiece that truly makes you not only want to be inside their space, but inside their imagination!
This is the type of home you walk into and smile, the bold primary colors play a major part in that. I think each and every one of us hopes that one day we can be invited to a dinner party here.
The bold colors and patterns repeat throughout the home, but the consistency never feels boring or generic. There is a surprise around every corner! Pairing bold colorful furniture with modern black furniture and graphic pillows will help you create a playful and dynamic living room like the one above.
Vibrant black and white stripes mix with the playful green accents, really making this room come to life without feeling chaotic. Solid black elements, like a rug or black table lamps are always great grounding elements.
A kid waking up in this room better get up and dance every single morning! Modern children's furniture mixed with playful accessories, graphic art and window treatments can create a room that is both playful and functional.
Carpet that looks like grass and life size toy sheep grazing on it...can it get any cuter?! We think not.
Soaking in this modern freestanding tub under the neon clouds sounds like a perfect way to end the day.
Living with art, not to mention playful art, is a great way to help you feel happy at home, even if you don't live in a super cool loft in Tribeca. Your goal should be to step inside your home, leaving all your worries at the door.

The Euro Style Lighting blogging team has decided to do a little round up for you each week. Think of it as a weekend read, some fun content for you to enjoy during your downtime... Here we go!
+So, have you ever seen color photographs of Le Corbusier? Well, besides the one in this post?... Fast Company has some rare, color photographs of this iconic designer and they are really fun to peruse.
+Thanks to CicLAVia, on Sunday morning, select L.A. city streets will be designated for cyclists only. Fixies, families and first-timers are all invited to ride care-free in the car-free city.
+We were completely blown away by this Medical Centre for Austistic Children in Sydney, Australia featured on Contemporist.
+Get the scoop on Young House Love's book tour and see if they're going to be in your city! Yes, they have a book coming out, as if their blog wasn't fun enough, right?!
+Do you want to get away this weekend, but can't go anywhere? Head over to Kevin Kunstadt's website and enjoy some mind-blowing photography of the The Dolomites, a section of the Alps located in Northeastern Italy.
Lighting is a key element in kitchen design, not just for it's functional element, but the aesthetic element as well. The lighting you choose for your kitchen can truly transform your space and take you from Mid-Century Modern to Hollywood Glam with one simple fixture. While the cabinetry style remains very similar take a look how the lighting in these modern kitchens completely changes the style and makes a really bold statement. A Mid-Century modern chandelier mixes so beautifully with charcoal veneer cabinetry, a chromed island, and herringbone floor. It adds playful character to an elegant kitchen.

The charcoal veneer cabinetry, marble island, and natural wood island table work perfectly with an industrial modern pendant. The nice clean lines and gorgeous silhouette of the pendant lights compliment the rough edges of the table while the bronze finish contrasts so nicely with the marble top yet blends so nicely with the cabinetry and the flooring. This is the perfect look to warm up any industrial modern loft!

Bronx 7-1/2" Wide Black Pendant
These sleek clean lines are gorgeous on their own, but adding that glamorous chandelier is like putting on the perfect necklace or pair of earrings. It adds an element of sophistication and femininity without taking away from the strong modern details that make this kitchen so beautiful.

The organic shape of the chandelier really softens up the space. It's a great contrast to the hard elements of the concrete floor and brick wall and really adds movement and depth to an otherwise stark kitchen.
Possini White Cloud 15" Wide Pendant
For the minimalist at heart, one option is no decorative lighting and the other is a light as sleek and clean as its environment. These long tube like pendants stand their ground over this island without creating too much drama. The clean lines mimic the lines of the cabinetry and remain absolutely stunning in their simplicity.

In the big apple, the hottest residential properties are the ones that literally sit on top of it all. Whether you're writing a down-payment check or just salivating over the thought of it like me, there's no denying the allure of New York's building-topping, showstopping spaces (such as Jill Stuart's edgy apartment above).
There's hardly a bad view from the 52nd floor of the Bloomberg Tower either:
What could be more appropriate than Warhol's soup cans in the kitchen? Does everyone in New York have an art collection to die-for (or to at least retire on)?
And who says there's no view of the sky, stars or trees in the city?
Generous use of wood extends the natural theme of this lower Manhattan penthouse apartment to the indoors. Distinctive pendant lights and modern recessed lighting maintain the contemporary feel.
George Kovacs Brushed Nickel Mini Pendant Light
At a decent altitude, light and space are easy to come by in the city, as in this spacious Chelsea penthouse by designer Marie Burgos.
Burgos has also applied her magic to a loft in Tribeca. I love the modern pendant lights that hangs overhead and sought out the design at Euro Style Lighting. This style works for kitchen islands as well as dining room tables.

Sure, a penthouse apartment in New York will cost a bundle. Infusing your home with the aesthetic however (minus the view) is much less cost-prohibitive.

This modern San Francisco home has a newly added room with a view, making you wonder what the street possibly did without this modern addition.... And that's saying a lot, considering it's a really pretty San Francisco street. The modern structure fits in well with the neighboring homes, but the bold black hue makes it really stand out.
The metal bridge stretches and connects the newly added room to a patio. The vairous shades of gray between the bridge, patio and structure work perfectly together and are accented beautifully with the landscaping. Modern outdoor furniture, maybe even with some pops of color, would be the perfect addition to this space.
A perforated screen folds down over the south-facing facade of the newly added room to prevent overheating during the day. When the screen is raised, the home has amazing views of the San Francisco bay. The inside of this added room is white, clean and modern. Simple pendant lighting is the perfect choice when you want to keep a room minimal.

Here's a little round up to help you achieve a chic, modern dining room like the one in this cool San Francisco home. Although we may not be able to live in a home this cool and with that view, we can still find elements of inspiration that we can apply to our own home.
