Complex but simple
I simply love this lamp, it's simple because it’s made of two materials, but the drop shape & how cables connect with the bulbs is really complex.

A trend we need to consider now
When people ask me what does design for the future means, the first thing that comes to my mind is eco-design. This kind of design grows in relevance every day and becomes a way of life for people who are aware of the importance of caring for our planet.

At Agatha Ruiz de la Prada store.
Today I present a retail design full of charming & creative details. It's one of Agatha Ruiz de la Prada stores in Spain, which was created by Karim Rashid. It is very interesting to see two great designers who love color, irregular shapes & designs full of life blended in one place. All details of the store are very attractive; one of the walls has a heart that distinguish the brand, made of red & reflective material. The floor is composed of white tiles with pink hearts made up of hearts with thin lines & different sizes one inside the other, which is a characteristic, way of creating graphics in some of Karim Rashid designs. Finally you will find furniture & walls that reflect light & the cute floor pattern. Definitely a place full of color, life & creativity.
Beautiful hotel design in Paris
The Hôtel du Ministère is a beautiful design hotel in Paris created by the studio François Champsaur. What I like most about the design is its impeccable attention to details that complete each space in a unique way, following a clear line inspired in the 50's with primary colors, geometric patterns, mixture of materials & textures. The first thing I noticed about this design was the pattern & color blue carpet that contrasts with the orange & red colors. Then exploring a little more I discovered a set of lines & geometric figures in areas like the bar & restaurant. Definitely a very special design that creates a great personality located in the city of love.

A white paradise.
I love the spaces mostly white, but I was always afraid to create an absolutely white space. Luckily I found this amazing example of a white design, in one of my favorite blog design, The Italian Bark. This design shows how creative you can be with only one color mixed with natural & rustic materials like wood or stone. It is also very interesting how it creates a rustic beach style with only one color & small objects that create interest & coziness in the rooms. The place is magical, what you can see with those incredible views, all you want is to be outside enjoying sun & water. I can not leave without talking about the impressive amount of natural light of this summer house, I love it & it makes the house even more unique & special.
kids room by Jessica Hanson
The little artist kids room was designed by Jessica Hanson. The room if full of colors, patterns & life. Is amazing how much the designer can achieve in the room, you have a chalk coal floor, tables for painting and different type of storage. I love the focal wall with those amazing mix of pastels & vibrant colors. I also love the different patterns you find in the focal wall & how they represent nature & its beauty. Definitely the perfect space for a little artist.
created by Kengo Kuma & Associates
Pigment store in Tokyo Japan created by Kengo Kuma & Associates. The store's design is inspired by an artist's world. The main idea of the store is to preserve the Japanese traditions of pigments & gather in one place the pigments elements & techniques . It is an art store with elements such as 4,200 different types of pigments, 600 kinds of brushes & 50 types of glues. The main object of the store is a bamboo canopy atacched to the ceiling that extends until the outside of the store, so passers-by can identify it, also the bamboo gives a natural & warm touch to the store. Pigment has a workshop with Kuma chairs & a bamboo table, bamboo shelves with pigment bottles & brushes that are displayed in a very practical way to be able to see all types. At the entrance of the store there is an artistic installation made with washi paper, which greets shoppers.
