Before I get into this post, just a quick note of apology for the outages that keep happening with the blog. Our blog host is upgrading their servers and apparently there’s nothing we can do. So frustrating! Hopefully this will be over very soon. 🙁 Back to this post which is a wonderful distraction from all of that. A big thanks to for sharing this project of her with us. Here are the details: The customer had a long-nurtured dream of a new studio for her counselling. It all started from the recent redesign of the Yoga room under my direction that pushed the customer to fulfilling her dream as soon as possible. The only request was the functionality – the presence of kitchen, reception and tea room, massage room adjacent to a shower room and the room for Aura-Soma consultations with a special rack. And the budget was the only limit. The colour scheme of the massage room is the Desert Rose (Paint and Paper Library) shade. The kitchen-living room area was originally designed in a cold colour set, but during the project implementation we decided to change it for the warm one, more comfortable for perception and allowing for relaxation: the walls in the vestibule and the kitchen are of Regency Fawn (Little Greene) shade, furniture in the kitchen– Georgetown (Paint and Paper Library) shade. The key element in the Aura-Soma room is the rack with the illumination, designed by Olga Fradina Interior Design, that contains the bottles of oil for this special type of colour and aroma therapy created by the Englishwoman Vickie Wall 20 years ago. The walls are of Dutch and Scottish sky shade – Hague Blue and Inchyra Blue (Farrow & Ball). One of the key decorative elements in the massage room is the niche decorated on the back wall with the printing of clouds printed on canvas from Olga’s photo and the fluorescent inscription “Be Free”. I love everything about this – the warm colours used, the unique kitchen design, the simple wood banquette, the copper/neon niche…
It’s like I always say (except not too much lately), if you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it looks great. Today’s workspace is a first for DTI. Part pastel Haussmannian, part post modernist homage meets contemporary bespoke, all with attention to medical precision it’s a plastic surgeon’s practice by French interior designers .
It’s like I say time and again. If you have to drag your sorry self into work on a Saturday then it certainly helps if it’s somewhere cool. How about the San Francisco Union Square offices of online lingerie company True & Co. by ? Cool work place. Cool view!
I wanted to share a couple of new projects by super creative Polish architecture firm . I love how it’s completely obvious that these guys just like to have fun and think people should enjoy their environment, even if it is where you work. This first workspace is that of Brain Embassy – a co-working and creative space in Warsaw. Wow the energy of this space is amazing! Great colours and industrial vibe and lots of versatile spaces to grow that business into something totally awesome. Note the play on “synapses” throughout.
This next project is the new mode: lina offices located in a modernized townhouse in the trendy and fast developing Poznań neighbourhood. With a minimalist and monochromatic palette, this just goes to show how cool this team is. This is all they need.
Why can’t I have this kitchen by Copenhagen-based ? (You may remember my previous post on them here.) Fabulous bespoke cabinets not to mention those black steel windows and wide plank oak floor. Love. Love. Love. While I’m at it I’ll take the office and that wine fridge under the stairs as well. There’s something so sexy about handcrafted and custom.
