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?

i am having two subjects in one post today.

remember the virtual monday post? that’s right, the realization of the project looks JUST LIKE the rendering, in good way! the marble countertop/backsplash with brass trim, framed by black cabinets with brass hardwares… minimal yet rich in materiality, michitecture’s #1 design mantra.

and remember the atrium house by tham & videgård arkitekter featured back in 2012?  stockholm-based architecture office TVARK’s book looks perfect in one of the HG7 project, packhuset. you can look inside the book here via idea books.nl (which offers really awesome book preview). buy the book from amazon(US).

happy sunday!

gray gray gray. the combination of gray and wood makes a calming interior atmosphere. my favorite corner? the kitchen. love the stainless steel cabinets with marble counter top, with subway tile as back splash on gray wall.

also don’t you love these deep window sill ?

yes, i can almost move in here… just need to add one or two tom dixon offcut stools to cheer up the interior little bit.

as title indicated, this is simply a gorgeous two bedroom apartment from göteborg, sweden, that i would LOVE to move in. besides the beautiful interior & spacious layout, the neighborhood is equally beautiful as well. the play of shades of gray from furniture to textile makes a very elegant & stylish interior that is crisp but still keep the warm feeling. and i like the fact that this apartment has a nicely done kitchen and the rest of rooms are still remaining more like a white canvas… it is a flexible space to be adopted to our lifestyle.

no seriously, i can totally move in here tomorrow.

here are some of my favorite corners:

flat file cabinet coffee table

using flat file cabinet as coffee table is one of these “let’s add some rustic to the modern home” move that makes you either love it or leave it. if you done it right – it could become a really charming center piece in the living room. and it comes with a plus- the cabinet can also serve as storage space for newspapers, magazines, misc. papers etc. functional and beautiful, a win-win.

in this apartment for sale in malmö, the wood panels from the cabinet, the era chairs, the wood dining table, and the wood countertop in the kitchen are in the family of similar tone, which brings a soft, warm touch to the majorly white interior.
