We're going to talk about how important it is to have natural elements in your space; today I show you a bedroom design with natural elements in a magic & reflective way. In a place like a bedroom, where it is not so advisable to have live plants during the night, this design idea is perfect. The use of the dry trunks to create a frame for the bed is just great, I love the way how it create cozy mood with soft yellow light. Another surprising element is the way in which the design creates an area to sit at the end of the bed with travel objects. Always is fundamental to keep in mind the taste of the owners to decorate a space, in this case you can see that the owners love to travel; first, with the sitting area made with baggage, then the candle holder & light above the bed, creating as a form of map. A good example of creativity to build a travel & relaxation mood.
Today we want to talk about something that surely you already have heard somewhere & that in design field you heard it a lot “less is more“. Here's a fantastic dining room, designed by Arper & a perfect example of what designers means with “less is more“. To achieve this kind of spaces is essential to have incredible design pieces that can stand for themselves. In this case we have brown chairs combined with a 60's style white round table, a work art mirror, impressive wooden floor & pendant lamp with Scandinavian style; now you have an idea of what you can achieve with just 5 impressive items. Another element that can help to create a minimalist look is the white color, which also helps to highlight the beautiful design pieces.
This stunning bathroom design is a great contemporary style for any modern space. One of the greatest tools that any person has to change a space is textures; here's a great example of different textures playing & contrasting to create interest & give life to the bathroom. It is beautiful the contrast between the blue lines, copper accents on the cabinet, sink & faucet, with the white & grey marble on the wall & floor. Each item has its own texture & combines in a spectacular way, relaxing your eyes and make then flow all over the place.
One of my hobbies is to cook & what can be better than cook with lovely colorful accessories likes these ones. For me are perfect because are made of wood with color splashes make then a perfect accessory tool for the kitchen. They will look magical in a mostly white kitchen design.
To end this amazing Eastern week we just want to say thank you to the universe for our wonderful journey.
Bara Herbs store was designed by Studio Samuelov, Yokneam in Israel. The concept of the store was to create a space where the science of medicine & nature are together. The place of about 2000 square meters was renovated, for the construction of a production area, visitor’s center, laboratories, treatment rooms, flagship store & offices. Bara Herbs is made with bamboo flooring, oak wood, concrete, glass, black iron & tile terrazzo. The design has a storytelling thread & drama, highlighting the tension between natural & artificial, creating hospitality place with new retail experiences.
Each place has its own magic, but home is unique. The design of ‘‘Villa in La Baule’’ in France, is really cool. It’s a house with an eclectic and international style. You can appreciate the taste of the owner for travel and learning about other cultures. I have defined the overall style modern African, very playful with splash of colors that give more life to the rooms.
What at the beginning was a temporary solution to a problem became the new home of Michelle de la Vega; she converted a former garage into a mini house. The house has a living room, bedroom, bathroom & kitchen. It's amazing how in small spaces can be found very creative design solutions for storage, separate areas & have the things that we like, as in this case a bath. The way people think about daily life is changing and live in a small space allows us to have a few things in the house, & maybe enjoy more of life & people.
Vegetal_ Chair was designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroulle for Vitra. It is a great representation of nature in a functional way.

Today we present a wonderful children's hospital design. Is the Amplatz Children's Hospital at Minnesota University designed by Tsoi Kobus & Associates. I love all forms of circles found around the hospital creating a beautiful story. Another great thing is how each area is defined by different colors. This hospital is totally child friendly with different games areas & activities; other great detail is the special room for scanners, designed as a magical world under the sea. Finally an important detail for any hospital natural light, Amplatz hospital has a lot of sun light in the rooms & social areas with incredible round skylights.
