"Bohemian Apartment" in New York

Now, I’ve heard of a funhouse before (usually found at carnivals) but this New York apartment is a FUN HOUSE! There is so much going on in here and lots of the rooms make me feel as though I am looking at a Wes Anderson movie set. You can tell that Incorporated Architecture & Design put a lot of thought into this place to inject it with kid friendly design while still making it a place that mom and dad can live in too. You’ll see what I mean….

 Now, I know that this is probably too much for some people but I love the creativity and colorful design in this home! And the neutral wood paneled walls are so beautiful.
 An indoor playhouse for the kids! CUTE!!
 Obviously the most tame room in the home is mom and dads. Love the antique panel against the wall.

Love the tiled accent.

Nap Worthy!

Each one of these chairs probably has a tag that says “Nap here”. Well, if they don’t, they should. I have never seen so many interesting looking chairs designed with relaxing in mind. Thank you, Design Milk, for featuring these creations!

I have always wanted to nap in a giant basket! This is the Cradle.
Two people can relax on the Loopita (by Victor Aleman)and not have feet in each others faces! Can also be designed with multiple loops.
Dive into the Hanabi by mottoWASABI! Each “pillow” is filled with polystyrene pellets for super squishy comfort.
 The Couch Sleeper by Anne Lorenz is a sleeping bad, chair and bed all in one!
The Feel Seating System Deluxe is made of 120 super soft, foam balls. Oh yeah!
Enveloppe is a comfy couch that you can really snuggle with.
 Twist and fold the Blandito until you find your perfect nap time position!

Who doesn’t love an adult size bean bag chair?! The My and the Roo by Woodnotes are the perfect lounging companion.

TINY, I Mean TINY New York Apartment!!

We have all seen some small spaces but I think this New York apartment takes the cake!! With only 245 square feet of space to work with, you may think it would be impossible to make such a tiny space a home but you would be SO WRONG! Tim Seggerman took that 245 square feet and created the most fabulous living space! He even made room for a full size washing machine in there!

Tear Off Wallpaper!!

Have you ever wanted to design your own wallpaper?? The “Tear Off” Wallpaper by ZNAK gets you pretty close to making that dream come true. Each panel of this wallpaper is perforated with squiggly designs that you can peel off to create whatever pattern you like. I love the idea of painting the wall first and then applying the wallpaper!! You’ll see what I mean.

Kitchen a la Cubism!

This is a kitchen gone crazy! Cubism in the Kitchen, by Gemelli Design Studio, takes traditional kitchen design and turns it on it’s ear. Thinking as much about the aesthetic appeal of the kitchen as well as functionality (even though it’s shelves and cabinets are not perfectly squared), Gemelli Studios has created a kitchen that I’m sure will get people talking AND really wake you up in the morning!

Concrete and Rubber United!!

The words, concrete and rubber are not often put together in the same sentence. I don’t think that I have ever heard of them being put together to make a light fixture either…. UNTIL NOW! Renate Vos’s Concrete Bin pendant lamp is made mostly of concrete and has a thin silicone rubber border. Truly unique and inventive.
