Nostalgia

It was a great idea to mix elements from different times, creating a timeline of sorts from the past to the present.

Iconic vintage pieces of art and furniture often define an era and play an important role in the character of the space. My goal  was to evoke pleasant memories and associations with France and Polynesia to create a familiar and conformable modern home.

I used very warm colors, natural wood, and patterns to make this space livable and cozy.

My Ethnic feelings 

 If you love vivacious colors and have a penchant for the exotic, you’ll find an ethnic-style quite impressive and interesting. My favorite variation of ethnic style is African (which usually includes Moroccan and Egyptian). An ethnic style is very bright, dynamic, lively and original. It brings atmosphere and essences to your space.

You can easily identify this style by the drawings with an imitation of animal skins on fabrics, walls and even on the floor. They are present in the paintings, mosaics, and other decorative elements. And of course, African style can not do without black figurines in the form of women and men in their national costumes. Clay vases and plates help finish the atmosphere and bring more naturalness in the interior. Shamanic masks, sculptures made of wood, an ornament on carpets and textiles help you dip in African culture and feel it without leaving the room.

Ethnic style usually chooses people who love to travel and to visit new countries and territories, those who want to surround themselves with the spirit of wandering and adventure novels.

Minimalist Interior Design 

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication ” –  Leonardo da Vinci 

The minimalist interior design had a lot to explore for me several years ago. And today I want to share my basic ideas and principals of this kind of Elegant modern design.

The Minimalist Interior Design is sophisticated combining clean lines, up-to-the-minute designs and high-tech technology.These interiors are stylishly sleek and minimal with the slogan “less is more” is the main emphasis for decoration.


Minimal and uncluttered, these interiors are not for everyone, especially those who like to display lots of ornamentation and curves as opposed to those who prefer a more bare-minimal approach.

To get the best minimal look, for the walls choose a neutral base colour in white or light tones of either cream, grey, or taupe. For accent colours, choose hues in different shades and tones to your base colour.

Furnish interiors with coffee tables, lamp tables, occasional tables, cabinets, sideboards and dining tables in gloss or satin finishes with minimal decoration.

Choose sofas and chairs upholstered in natural textures in neutral tones. For a luxurious touch, add a chair or small sofa in a bold accent color.

Dress windows with stylish curtains in neutral tones in plain fabric or with a minimal pattern. For a sleek look use white muslin draped to the floor. If you prefer blinds, choose a neutral tone to match your base color or white.

Select flooring that is finished in neutral gloss tones. Go for large ceramic tiles, wooden flooring or plain neutral coloured carpets.

For the main lighting, choose downlights or cove lighting. Add soft ambient light by placing table lamps and standing lamps in the room for use as task lighting.

You can also use your own ideas. The key is function and minimal look you need to achieve. You need to focus on form, color, and texture and that will be all. Have fun with your design!

Every day we are surrounded by screens and technologies that can make us feel stressed and too dependent on it . At the same time advancing technology provides the new opportunity for us to stay informed, connected, entertained, and engaged. Technology products become smaller, lighter, and more portable. And these are good changes!

Modern color trends mix classy black, white and gray color tones with romantic pink and mysterious light purple colors. Trends colors create fabulous blends of spring inspired yellow and green colors are modern interior colors that look gorgeous with contrasting black. Peaceful blue and green combinations, red wine colors, bronze, gold
d and comfortable brown colors can be mixed into interiors of 2016.
Trends colors of 2016
– Pastel pink for loved room looks aristocratic.

– Rich red wine colors will help create impressive, comfortable, harmonious and fresh home decorating.
– Blue color tones, combined with green and orange shades will look harmonious, cozy and fresh.
And don’t forget about florals, including dark florals.
All this changes and trends in the interior design bring us closer to one more sophisticated, warmer and well-balanced place to inhabit where the colors are playful, easygoing and artistic.

Interior Design, Decorating & Lightning

Design Projects for this year filled with natural materials as coating cork and marble, wood, stone and raw concrete are also here with their timeless presence.

This exploration of what eco nature has to offer and its entwining in the house construct is a strong trend visible also in the wide usage of plant life and garden elements into interior decor. The good alternative as always would be photo murals with fresh and cozy prints.
The minimalistic and clever usage and arrangement of space are also extremely important for the today dynamic lifestyle. We are moving towards a minimalistic model, whose quiet aesthetic allows us to escape the rush of the city. Playing with optical illusion in environments such as kitchen and bathroom, using wallpapers or green walls, curtains – everything is allowed to gain space and add charm.

Harmonizing minimalistic architectural interiors, using reflected light for creating soft interior decorating and visual comfort. Using lighting ideas for creating functional zones. Creating artworks with contemporary lighting. This year lighting design adding geometric shapes to interior decorating and highlighting geometric decoration patterns. Soft lighting design without sharp contrasts of shades and illuminated spaces.
Another major change in the look of the house is the presence of functional decorative objects. Soon I guess there will be no room for useless items. It will become increasingly important to acquire objects that can be processed according to the time and space of the person’s life.

This season 2016 I recommend bringing old world ornaments, mid-century modernism with mixing materials and shiny details, rounded furniture, and Scandinavian flat weaves on the carpets. It will help you to create impressive, comfortable, sophisticated and trendy home decorating.
