Designer Martina Carpelan (the official website is currently down right now, but check back soon) came up with an idea that is both creative and functional. This simple and elegant storage unit we found on bookofjoe can be positioned anywhere in the house, where two walls intersect. Made entirely out of wood, it goes well in a traditional decor, but in a contemporary one as well. Moreover, it can be of great help in various interiors, from the kitchen to the living room. Here is a small description from the designer: “Kulma, corner in Finnish, is a shelf to be hung either in a positive or a negative corner of a room. The idea is to utilize and highlight both the space within the shelf and the corner surrounding the shelf.” We salute the simplicity and versatility of this design and would like to know if you find it as practical as we do.
While some kitchens tend to revel in a flood of yellow and others look great when gray takes over the lead role, there are times when you need a perfect balance between both hues to create your dream kitchen. Yellow plays a major role in kitchens with styles ranging from rustic and farmhouse to Mediterranean and Craftsman. Gray on the other hand brings the urbane appeal of contemporary and transitional styles and even looks perfectly at home in industrial settings. It is often the style you choose that will determine which of the two colors plays the protagonist in your kitchen.
With the world around us becoming more and more urbane with each passing day, the heart often longs for simpler times and some country-style goodness. Crafted with ingenious style and exclusive modularity by Marchi, Doria is a kitchen that effortlessly blends timeless rustic beauty with the inimitable allure of Mediterranean design. The many intricate details of Doria bring together a distinct artisanal touch, a captivating modular country-style approach, and of course accents, hues and finishes that evoke images of a lazy summer evening in an exotic Mediterranean retreat.
