This interior caught my eye as I like the warmth brought by the wood. Mixed with metal, it adds up a modern feel to the uncluttered and simple volumes. I could have bet this house was located in the french alps, but no ! I was surprised to discover it’s actually located in … Japan !
Visit the “Ishibe” house, made by Alts Design in Japan.
Mix of wood style for this corridor. Decoration enhance with large posters framed sitting on the floor.
The entrance made of wood with a metal stair linking with the second floor.
Living area with kitchen and a wide table for family reunion : the hub of this house. Beautifully designed with a mix of wood of the ceiling and for the table top. Industrial feel adds modernity with hanging lamp bulbs from black cord on the ceiling and metal structure for furniture and stairs. A wise mix !
Very simple lines is what works best ; )
Check the large open shelves for storage on the far right.
Another view from the kitchen side.
The mezzanine upstairs with wooden floor and ceiling. A wall has been covered of old pieces of wood for a more rustic look.
A cosy atmosphere with a japanese touch. Very ZEN !
Surprisingly, I didn’t expect the exterior of this house to look like a cube. We expect a chalet type house, but it is actually a perfect cube ! Why not ? (Well actually a bit too modern to my (french) taste)
Welcome for a visit of a very charming restaurant in Copenhagen: Höst. I discovered it on the website “NewNorm.dk” and I basically fell in love with the atmosphere which is all I like: simplicity and natural feel.
I enjoy the combination of interior design with dinnerware. It has been designed by architects and designers Norm and produced by Danish designhouse Menu
Norm was responsible for the interior design of Höst. Based on the same philosophy underlying New Norm Dinnerware, Norm – in close cooperation with Danish designhouse Menu – has created an organic environment in an urban setting. Guests enter into a warm and inviting space and are met with the unmistakable sense of Scandinavian cosiness, while everything is also a bit weathered.
“New Norm Dinnerware and Höst meet in a symbiotic relationship, where the dinnerware accompanies seasonal local cuisine while evoking a special atmosphere. The light-blue glazes lead thoughts to the cool evenings of Nordic summer. They combine beautifully with light summer foods and provide a contrast to the season’s colourful berries. The dark blue-grey glazes symbolise the seas around us and the dramatic cloudy skies – the elements surrounding fish and fowl. The warm brown wood tones tell of the forest’s depth, sensuality and warmth, making them a perfect companion for autumn meals. The coarse texture of the stone plate tells the story of the Nordic mountains – a scenic backdrop for herbs, root vegetables, mushrooms and wild berries,” say Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Rønn from Norm.
I really enjoy the light calm color combination of the dinnerware in contradiction with the black industrial fixtures.
A great choice of painting different style wooden chair in a palette of dark to light grey.
Bulb light, simple, industrial, but so discrete !
Natural materials: wool and wood.
I had never thought chop board would look so nice on a wall !
