By placing greenery or even white washing the walls, your pad can transform into the new-aged Scandinavian metropolis. Everything is minimal and rugged by using mixed natural materials such as wood and fur. Be closer to the earth by having just a mattress on the floor. These people that suit these living arrangements are relaxed, happy beings, so if this is something you feel is missing form your life, it’s time to have a re-deisgn.

This is a typical bachelor pad! Wooden floors and studio-styled place is a perfect way to explore your masculinity. Doing projects like these are actually my favourite. There’s so much to play with. But the simplicity in having a bed just on the ground makes this space feel comfortable and relaxed. The shimmery wooden floors complete this glossy look and make it that much smarter. Without the shine, I feel as though this could look grungy and rustic, more like an artisan’s studio. Electric curtains and windows finish this place off giving it a modern touch. What a beauty this is. Inspiration taken to the max. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
If your planning a trip to Barcelona any time soon, I highly recommend you to check out Soho House. It’s designed beautifully adding elements of colour and textures throughout their rooms. Nothing is left untouched and the attention to detail is like no other. Exposed brickwork allows a room to automatically feel old and authentic so this is something you should not cover up. The lights look like pooky lights (a shop you should check out if you haven’t already) as they are beautifully crafted with bright shades and quirky patterns. It’s a lush environment to sit back and relax.
Plain and boring no more; blinds can be any shape colour or style you wish so why not bring them into a room for a practical and easy solution. Moroccan style blinds and shutters have been on the rise to give a quirky edge to a very average household necessity. The intricate shapes of the blind itself or pattern can add detail to a room in the most unlikely place. Adding a sheer curtain and fringed ties can make a stunning feature window area.
When moving house, art and collectables are usually the only items that get transferred from place to place. So I will give you an example of a piece of art that resembles the design of the room.
This piece of art is contemporary and clearly photoshopped to include nature and forestry. Below is a room that is parallel to this piece of art and designed on this singular photograph.
The spotted wall highlights the hidden forest within the image and the use of whites, greys and blacks are prominent within this setting. Take note of the linear lines of the hand in the photo and then again on the ceiling. The texture from the rug, sofa and the wooden seat are all seen within the hand of the image as branches bend and curl making it look 3D.
As you can see this is what my kitchen, dining space looks at the moment. This room leads onto the conservatory, the door space is small, I will open this up and turn it into an arch. This space originally was divided in two. The change of wallpaper tells all. One side was a dining room, and the other was a small long kitchen. I have opened this us to make it a large open planned downstairs space. The window space in here is fantastic. Before the wall was knocked down, there was little light in the kitchen. Having a large kitchen is a massive bonus :)!
This is my downstairs loo. This too was much smaller, and I have taken down a wall so it can be bigger. In the guest loo, this is your only time that a guest can have time to themselves, and it must make a huge impression. I have a wonderful idea for this space, so watch out for the improvements!
This sitting room had huge leaks from a drainpipe outside. This will all be re-plastered with mouldings. I have ideas for the window treatment, such as half shutters. They look incredibly smart, yet they produce amazing linear light lines.
