ah. exposed brick walls. certainly there are technical/maintenance aspects to be considered,  (if not whitewashed); and for the rentals, exposed brick walls is often viewed as an real estate ruse to bring some “design” intent to the property (not to say these faux exposed brick wall panels). so here you go, there are actually two types of exposed brick walls included in this property. what do you feel about the exposed brick wall?

the layout of the apartment can be challenging as the unit is at the ground floor next to the street, and, the organization of the rooms  is a linear arrangement from hallway, living room to bedroom/kitchen/bathroom. yet these black frames successfully defined each space without interrupting the visual openness.

truly a thoughtfully curated interior that is rich in characters (love these ceiling bulbs) yet remains its simplicity in color & material palette. this gotta be one of the dream bachelor pad i’d fancy!

and yeah… the ‘new york loft style’ is probably the second next to the exposed brick wall as an overused term in the interior design field. but you get what i mean.

happy sunday!

floating sideboards, again

IKEA kitchen wall unit with marble top

image source unknown

six months passed and we still haven’t settled on the sideboard solution in our house, nor have we started the long over-due renovation… anyway, speaking of patience.

while we’re still open for the hallway solution, here i am self affirmed that i would really looove to have a minimal look of sideboards in our living room-also-part-of-hallway. my top choice is still this IKEA hack shown in the above image : kitchen wall units with marble top.

✚ and of course, this no-hack needed simple white floating sideboard is even better…

using the rod suspends from harness leather belts mounted to the ceiling as clothing rack has been a very popular DIY item since fermliving released their brilliant design… yet i haven’t seen the example to use the application in kitchen, which as you see here, the result is surprisingly practical – and it makes a stylish upgrade to the space.

i personally really don’t like the idea of consumerism. unfortunately, it is part of the culture rooted deep in US. and if you’re living in US, you know what black friday means… so, instead of another “holiday gift shopping guide” that every design blogs (and non-design blogs) are doing right now, i would like to share some inspirational images involved color black. so yeah, it’s black friday, in michitecture’s way.
