  • Small Space Inspiration: Moscow Apartment


    When it comes to interior design, size does not matter. 

    This 590 square-foot  Moscow apartment is filled with small space inspiration and proof that no matter how small your space is, your design can be powerful.

    Small Space Inspiration - Moscow Apartment

    Modern home in Moscow.

    Do you have a small space, low ceilings...?

    Don't worry, use the space you do have and take some inspirational cues from this small space in Moscow.

    The long console helps the space look larger horizontally, especially due to its white color and flanking white walls.

    Stylish modern floor lamps are great in a small space. They provide great lighting, take up little floor space and can be moved easily. 

    While design is always in the details, this matters more in a small space.

    If you're not happy with the size of your space, make a statement using contrast. Like new mixed with something old, metal with natural materials...

    The small space inspiration from this Moscow apartment is a great example. It helps us see the how beautiful mixing materials with rustic wall, wood floors and white brick walls can be.

    It also brings attention to the minimal, yet dynamic modern wall art choices.

    Bottom line, brilliant details in a modern space make big impact.

  • Modern Bohemian Home Style


    One of the most fun design style combinations is bohemian and modern.

    There is so much contrast, yet so much in common.

    Let's take a look...

    Modern bohemian

    When in doubt, just use lots of textures.

    The bohemian style is about collections, old and new, soft and rough, etc.

    There's no better way to express this collective style than through a mixture of textures.

    But, in order to keep it modern, try not to create too much clutter.

    An easy way to add some  modern bohemian style is to use a  stylish brass table lamp that mixes metal with natural material. 

    The vignette above is not minimal, by any means, but it's also very clean and all the elements are carefully placed, reducing the clutter look.

    If you don't want the maximalist look and want your bohemian style to lean more toward a modern aesthetic, then keep it a bit more minimal. 

    Instead, rely on modern home textiles with patterns. A  modern bohemian style accent pillow, throw or area rug will do the trick. 

    The top of the modern console is great example of minimalist work. It is  perfectly adorned with a little texture (wood and greenery) without being too busy.

    While it works for pretty much any home style, adding flowers to your decor is a beautiful detail.

    Flowers add colors and textures, two of the bohemian style staples.

    The woven wood chairs above are also perfect for the modern, bohemian style, adding clean lines and textures.

  • Industrial Style Lighting For the Bathroom


    Let's talk about the industrial design style. We are getting pretty close to 2017 and it looks like industrial home decor is here for good. That being said, we're pretty happy to point out that lighting is a really easy way to address this style.

    The bathroom might be one of the most fun rooms to design with this style in mind, so let's take a look at a few greats.

    Lots of tile and mixed metals will help you achieve any of these looks. Pay attention to how industrial bathroom lighting contributes to all of these designs. It can be both elegant and discreet. 

    Wile the top image and the one above are very different looks, notice how the mixing of materials is a great way to achieve the industrial look. While the bathroom above features mostly chrome hardware, the wall sconce is a more distressed, brown metal.

    You don't have to have a busy, eclectic design to have an industrial aesthetic. You can also have a very clean space like the one above, while still featuring industrial features with lighting and materials. Industrial style pendant lighting is a great way to achieve a streamlined industrial look.
