Designer Martina Carpelan (the official website is currently down right now, but check back soon) came up with an idea that is both creative and functional. This simple and elegant storage unit we found on bookofjoe can be positioned anywhere in the house, where two walls intersect. Made entirely out of wood, it goes well in a traditional decor, but in a contemporary one as well. Moreover, it can be of great help in various interiors, from the kitchen to the living room. Here is a small description from the designer: “Kulma, corner in Finnish, is a shelf to be hung either in a positive or a negative corner of a room. The idea is to utilize and highlight both the space within the shelf and the corner surrounding the shelf.” We salute the simplicity and versatility of this design and would like to know if you find it as practical as we do.
Today we change that perception by bringing in the understated beauty of gray along with a splash of yellow goodness. While some kitchens are draped in just these two hues, others use them in a restrained and clever fashion to enhance their ambiance. Cutting across style barriers, these 11 kitchens might just inspire you to give your kitchen a smart little color revamp.
Despite its country style and rustic aesthetics, Doria does not cut back on comfort and modern functionality. Instead features such as the refrigerator and cooking hood are elegantly concealed by painted cabinets to ensure that they do not disturb the wonderful narrative. Stone sinks, earthenware pots and other subtle touches such as the rod for hanging utensils ensure that your kitchen becomes a portal that takes you back in time to a colorful countryside somewhere in the Mediterranean.
