two very different settings of kitchen using same color & material palette: brass hardware, gray cabinets and marble countertop, and both kitchens look amazingly chic. love the simplicity and the accent of brass hardware.

white vs. black, which one is more of your type?

the freshly cut look of plywood pair with marble countertop, these two simple materials, are surprisingly a perfect complimentary to each other. so minimal in form but rich in its character. simply gorgeous. and hey did i mention there is a beautiful concrete floor (in true cement gray) that extends inside-out? it must be such a treat to have your daily meals or cup of coffee here with that view.

if you’re like me who still believe in concrete floor, check out these beautiful examples here and here by antwerpen-based architecture studio made architects.

the old-meets-new type of house renovation/extension work in UK has been one of my favorite go-to when i am looking for the urban dwell renovation inspiration. i recently came across london-based paper house project‘s work and the holton street project is a perfect sample of their work : minimal yet rich in personality,  which is also michitecture’s design mantra.

” We don’t think sustainability should be a special design feature, but rather a fundamental idea that informs every decision we make from start to finish.”

all project images and description are provided by paper house project (thanks james!).

i haven’t really seen any project recently that would trigger the “i can move in here” button. and here we go – this AMAZING property in uppsala, sweden ( uppsala is the fourth largest city of sweden, after stockholm, gothenburg and malmö ) is beyond the dream: very crisp interior style with shades of nude and rusty coral color scheme. the layout of the house is simple and efficient. the vintage modern style is still the winning secret ingredient for a chic, modern home.
