On the echo of the bourgeois way of life and social tendencies of Romania’s capital, Sky Club by Live Concept in Ploiesti, Romania, embodies the multi-functional, minimalistic and fusion trends of the high and upper-middle class citizen. Situated in the midst of a leisure complex, it was decided to develop a structure whose form and functionality would make the most of its environment trough the elaborate metamorphosis of a preexisting industrial building.
Thus it was necessary to construct said extension in the form of a light-weight modular metallic and glass structure in order to obtain cross-season functionality trough elements such as: a retractable roof and folding 36mX4m frame-free glass façade leading up to the leisure center’s pool.
The core idea for the interior design has its origins in the playful “doodling” done in our offices. In a brainstorming session regarding the direction of our approach we transcended from sketching out ideas on paper to outlining them outright with said celluloid resources, as a consequence our make-shift origami introduced us to the principal aspect of the club’s interior environment: straight corners, wide clear surfaces, firmly folding and guiding visitors trough the structure.
An intuitive positioning was adopted for Sky’s entertainment areas and facilities i.e.: a center stage privately surrounded by the V.I.P. area, high definition LED screens layering all the interior walls in ambient light and a row of folded mirror columns bisecting and dominating the whole interior with a mesmerizing show of illusions and radiance.

Create height with items such as plants, artwork and books. Alternate taller pieces with shorter items such as peite vases, as shown below in the A Beautiful Mess studio living room. Not sure where to start? Choose a cohesive look and go for it! The next shelf vignette featured at Emily Henderson showcases a “Desert New Age” style, which welcomes earthy tones, tribal patterns, succulents and mineral specimens, among other pieces. In fact, in the next image we see the exact same shelf, this time styled to create a Playful Scholar look featuring neutral, masculine colors. Note special touches such as a globe and a bust displayed in a cloche. Incorporate a few unique conversation pieces into your shelving display for added interest.
Sunken living rooms were all the rage in the 60s and 70s, but they can still be just as comfy and stylish in the aughts. With so many of us opting for open plan spaces these days, creating a casual but defined “conversation pit” is a fun way to break up your living room into manageable zones. Read on for some of our favorite inspiration rooms featuring cozy sunken living areas that we’d love to nestle up in. The soaring ceilings of this bright and airy Texas home are further exaggerated by its recessed seating area. The raw look of the wooden ceilings and concrete floors are softened by strategically placed pops of color and plush pillows.
