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)
This is a simple and very cosy interior made by scandinavian designer Folkhem.
The calm and relaxing look has been created thanks to the neutral colors like white and greys, associated white light wood. Thus it adds a natural feel without filling the interior too much. The whole look is uncluttered but still warm : a good combination !
Here are some pictures of an old farm renovated recently. I found the decoration interesting as it is very colorful. It contrasts the “grey” colors we often find now in modern decoration. And it is still a very relaxing peaceful place.
This old Dutch farmhouse was renovated by Larissa, an interior designer and her husband, Peter, project developer. Originally built in 1860, the farm now is the home of the couple and their 2 kids. While keeping the old character of the space, Larissa and Peter created intimacy and a cosy modern feel to their home.
Concrete floor, wooden beams and plenty of colors and textures : it looks like it a good mix for this interior !
Baptized by Nature Design is a functional and affordable Eco furniture collection made of driftwood in combination with other materials.
At CosyNEVE, we love the creative process that Cathérine Op de Beeck operates. She is using the strenght of nature while respecting it. It is a very inspirational work and I hope you will enjoy it.
A creative story about wood formed and grayed by nature.
Cathérine Op de Beeck (14/01/82 Roeselare) makes modern, functional little furniture and useful accessories with a very unique look. Every creation is unique by its literal meaning. Her collection is made from driftwood, from tree trunks that travelled hundreds of kilometers through the river Rhone in to the Mediterranean Sea to finally end up on the Camargue beaches to start their bleaching process. Every 3 months, Cathérine herself goes to the unique beaches of the Camarque to carefully select her wood. “Every piece has its own character, its own story, its own coloring process” according to Cathérine. “I cannot have anyone else make that selection. My inspiration starts by feeling the wood, hearing the sea, the search on the abandoned, bewildered beach.”
“An exclusive and forceful furniture collection that unifies the strenght of stainless steel (Inox Aisi 316) and the imperfection of the Camargue driftwood from France in a fluent and magical way.”

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 !
During the past weeks, I’ve been collecting images on the web in order to share with you what I believe is THE trend of this autumn/winter 2012/2013. In two words : PINK PASTEL!
Let’s start by the bedroom:
The living area:
And to finish, the kitchen and dining area:
You can notice that in every room, the pink color has been added with little touches of it, only. If you like it and want to get the look, keep the advice in mind and measure the amount of pink you add in your room.
I hope this article has been inspirational for you, I’d be happy to see your “pink pastel” interiors, feel free to drop a pict ! Oh and don’t forget to click “like”, thanks !
