White and Wooden Norwegian Interior

Here is a small thatched house in the heart of Norwegian nature. The interior design is uncluttered, white and wood.

Designed by Norwegian architect John Lassen, most of the furniture has been created by himself. The rest comes from the famous brand IKEA. The style is very pure, very clear, very white. Touches of wood warm the atmosphere and the materials works great together!

View from the outside:

A ladder has been placed instead of a staircase in order to optimize the space.

Intérieur blanc et bois en Norvège

Voici une petite maison au toit de chaume située au coeur de la nature Norvégienne. Le design intérieur est très épuré, blanc et bois.

Conçue par l’architecte norvégien John Lassen, la plupart du mobilier a également été créé par lui-même. Le reste provient de la célèbre marque IKEA. Le style est très pur, très clair, très blanc. Des touches de bois réchauffent l’atmosphère et l’accord des matériaux fonctionne à merveille !

Vue de l’extérieur:

Modern Alpine Hut

Hi, today I found the original Leap Factory work of an italian company who recently built the new Gervasutti hut. Situated at 2865 meters high just under Grandes and Petites Jorasses, in the Mt Blanc Massif on the italian side, the new Gervasutti hut replace the old one which was more than 40 years old.

It has been created to resist to extreme high altitude weather and temperatures by using high technology material and insulation. The design is very different to original huts in the Alps and has been quite controversial for the mountaineers who used to live in basic huts.

Cost: 250.000,00 € (Total budget)
Design phase: sept. 2009 – dec 2010
Construction phase: may 2011 – oct 2010
2 day to install unit
Realization:
 Poligamma, Biella (composite materials), GVM Arreda, Torino (interiors), Plat Andrea, Aosta (on site works)

Size: 30 square metres of usable space
Weight: 2500 kg total
12 bed spaces
2.5 Kwh of solar energy produced

Ottawa modern white house

Today, a bit of inspiration with this modern 260 square meter house in Ontario, Canada.

The decoration is very simple :

White white and white, oh and a few touches of color pattern here and there. To add some warmth to the “all white” decor, the materials play an important role : wood, metal and tile work together to create an harmonious natural feel.

The lines are very modern and contemporary, maybe even too much to my personal taste. But I’ve been seduced by the indoor tree and the kitchen island… I let you have a look ! Enjoy !
I hope this has been inspirational, if so, please “like it” !
Thanks !

Adeline Klam, french colorful creative

While reading a magzine, I recently discovered a french creative designer of colorful pattern objects.

Adeline Klam

She discovered the Japanese paper during a trip to the United States. Gradually, she meets traditional paper manufacturers in Japan, where she finds other original papers. Over time, she learned to understand and control the paper process and begins to use it for decorating and making beautiful things. Originally the shop was actually a workshop! Gradually, paper and craft production took place and the shop ‘Adeline Klam’ opened to share her colorful creations.

The wide range of designs and colors allows everyone to create diverse personalized atmospheres. Adeline has created a delicate universe, inspired by the finesse and beauty of Japanese art, which comes in many different forms and gives us a true poetry.

Have look at her beautiful fine creations.

Hinterland DESIGN: 3 way to bring outdoors indoors

I’d like to share with you the work of Riley Mcferrin. This american designer, artist and builder founded Hinterland Collection, 7 years after he moved to British Columbia, where he has been influenced by the area’s natural bounty and its history as a forest industry centre.

Find more on : http://hinterlanddesign.com

 

NURSELOG

These dual-purpose side tables bring the outdoors to the indoors. Mimicking rain forest stumps that grow mosses and ferns from their tops, a round insert allows a small arrangement of plants to add a living element to a useful surface. No two are alike.

MATERIALS
Western red cedar (if used as an exterior piece, the material will silver with the elements)
FINISHES
Oil and beeswax

TREETOP DINING TABLE

Inspired by the sentinels of the forest, these salvaged and dried hardwood logs from coastal B.C. create unique, tree-like table legs that only reveal their modernist leanings at the chamfered intersection with the table’s top surface. This knockdown table flatpacks, and is easily assembled.

MATERIALS
Salvaged hardwood legs FSC-certified hardwood top
FINISHES
Clear low-voc oil, carbon pigment dye (optional)

SCATTER/GATHER PENDANT LIGHT

This pendant gets its name from the cast shadows its canopy creates, as well as the story held within the material. Its wooden branches are scattered far and wide, then gathered up from the rugged Pacific shoreline. Hand-constructed using pegged and glued through-tenons, no fasteners detract from the abstract and natural beauty of each unique fixture. It has two optional finishes: natural or carbon. As a further option, it can be twisted and tied with fluorescent straps, tape and wire,forming a littered cluster of branches that orbit a central glow reminiscent of a physics experiment gone awry.

MATERIALS
Found ocean-washed branches, black or white cloth-covered twisted electrical wire, medium-base porcelain lamp socket
FINISHES
Natural or carbon pigment dye
OPTIONS
Can be adorned with fluorescent straps and wire

Eccentric house : Would you live in it?

Packed with wild colors, vintage collectibles and all things plastic, this Netherlands rental boldly ventures into futuristic territory.
Would you live in it ??

Bram Damman doesn’t see his colorful, collectibles-filled Netherlands home as retro, but rather as futuristic and modern. “Not in the sense of contemporary,” he says, “but in the sense that these items were once designed with the intention to be modern.” Damman’s interior reflects a passion for space-age modern style cultivated during his 1970s childhood. Collector’s items, vintage furniture and bold colors fill his house from top to bottom. Much of his midcentury furniture feels very fashionable, but he’s not interested in trends. “What concerns me the least is what’s in fashion,” he says. “I don’t follow trends; I make them.
Who lives here: Bram Damman
Location: Wageningen, the Netherlands
Size: 650 square feet; 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom

So… would you live in this house ??
