  • Interior Architecture: Modern Warehouse Conversion

    • 1 Comments

    Modern Warehouse Conversion

    The pure attention to the details of interior architecture is why the work of Fearon Hay Architects captivates me.This minimal design of this 1960's fabric warehouse conversion in Auckland, New Zealand is functional and straight-forward. My eyes gloss over at the sight of the detailing of those rosewood framed doors.

    Interior Architecture

    The gorgeous fabrics rolls spread out over the space make a bold statement while the architecture accentuates the beauty of each piece without trying to fight it.

    Pivot Doors

    The form of each of the chairs and table (above) adds a sculptural element within the space. Raw, concrete floors, white walls, and modern accent chairs will help you achieve the modern and industrial look like the space above.

    Oxblood leather chairs and soft artwork cozy up the conference room. A modern office chair is not only practical and comfortable, but is a great way to bring modern elements into your office space.

    Of course you know we love lighting, and if I could add just one element to this design it would be a simple modern pendant light.

    The rosewood framed doors are able to separate the room physically, but not visually. Now this is what design is all about; the thin rosewood frame, sleek handle, and the most beautiful part of it all, the brass detailing. It's these elements that separate the men from the boys when it comes to good design.

  • Gothic Architecture: Tim Burton Inspired Bridal Shoot

    Gothic Architecture

    Happy Halloween! We don't usually post about weddings, but when there's cool Gothic architecture involved we do. It might not be in line with our typicaly modern architecture obsession, but we appreciate all great design. This bridal shoot is the stunning work of photographer Shelly Mantovani, inspired by the Tim Burton film ‘Dark shadows’. I'm sure there are many people out there getting married on today, and if you're not you can always dress up and pretend you are!

    Take a look at some gorgeous inspiration for a dark wedding or just some really cool Gothic architecture...

    Gothic Windows

    This red is purely radiant!  Pops of red in your wardrobe or home decor will always bring energy to your style!

    Pink Dress

    The use of pinks and soft pastels creates such a romantic energy in a dark way. Speaking of dark, the one thing this space is missing is some black pendants or chandeliers, right?!

    Be safe this Halloween!

  • Modern Cabin Escape: Villa Solaire

    Modern Living Room

    So, if the Euro Style Lighting blogging team were to go on a retreat anywhere... This is where we'd go! But, since we're not, and we couldn't make it to France to stay in this modern cabin even if we did have a blogger retreat, we'll just dream. Let's start with dark modern seating.

    Moder Architecture

    The hallway is a clear example of the linear architecture that runs through the house. Natural, light wood finishes pair nicely with the dark floors, walls and furniture.

    Modern Bedroom

    Clean white walls and natural wood panels give this bedroom space a modern, clean vibe. There's no doubt this bedroom would win the minimally modern prize. Simple white sconces can help you achieve this look in your bedroom.

    Modern Jacuzzi Room

    Let's face it, no modern cabin would be complete without a space to warm up, right? Check out this fabulous jacuzzi room.

    There's lots of ways to achieve this cozy, modern look in your own home. Rather than be sad we don't live here, we just get very inspired to achieve the look. We hope this home inspires you too...

  • Modern Dollhouse: Miniature Style to Envy

    Modern Dollhouse

    No, your eyes are not deceiving you. This is the most modern dollhouse we've ever seen too!

    Designer Elaine Shaw from South-East London, made this modern dollhouse by hand. Just a tenth of the size of a real home, the intricate three-story model features a mini iMac, X-BOX, flat screen TV and Art Deco paintings. No doubt, these dolls live the good life.

    Mid-Century Modern

    Besides the attention to cool modern furniture, which you don't normally find in a dollhouse, the details are amazing!... Like the beverage on the side table, near the gray chair (below).
