How to make your home feel like a luxurious beach resort

Friday, July 20th, 2018

Making a home feel like a vacation oasis is not as difficult. To start with, a white on white theme is closely correlated with beachy, yet modern ambiance. An airy vibe is especially prolific when it comes to combining sleek finishes like glass and lacquer of Prora dining table by Bonaldo with dimensional textures of the Alanda leather dining chairs and the classic minimalism of the tiled floors which collectively create a contemporary but relaxed setting similar to one experienced in chic resorts.

This very similar, fresh resort look is achieved with a glowing white-on-white decor using Impunto bed by Pianca in a spacious room where the only pop of color is the ocean outside, but in any urban equivalent would be an art piece or other decorative accessory.

It may be a tad difficult to realize a Red, White, and Blue color scheme in the house, without making it overtly patriotic and to some extent cheeky, especially since it is s inextricably connected to Independence Day. This iconic palette, albeit being a July 4th symbol, can also become a discerning choice for surprisingly crisp modern interiors that project a preppy vibe.

Saturday, May 19th, 2018

With Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tying the knot and with that, breaking many rules and age-old traditions as well as redefining what royalty in the 21st century really means through their fairy tale love story, it is not surprising that the ultra-modern interior style that’s known for its particular minimalism is getting a royal makeover. Epitomizing exquisite materials that are inspired by regal heritage and combining aesthetic simplicity with intelligent functionality, today’s modern design heavily influenced by extravagant details typically associated with royalty. This trend was particularly highlighted at this year’s Salone del Mobile that took place in Milan last month. From velvet upholsteries to exaggerated structures, here’s our favorite example of this growing modern trend.

The Caracalla bed was upholstered in a jewel-toned velvet fabric with extra wide and, curved headboard that’s designed to envelop with cozy refinement.

Thursday, March 29th, 2018

Recliners as a general rule are certainly not the most attractive seating solution pieces in a sea of stunning designer furniture pieces, and yet it is something that fills the void of certain type of comfort that only this particular chair can meet. We searched high and low for reclining chairs that also combine an element of sophistication and refinement, and were able to highlight two stunning options by Nicoline that, if one did not know, would never assume were recliners. Both Lessina and Poros are a testament to modern style, minimal design and meticulous attention to details that help create a sense of fit with any space that can benefit from reclining functionality without the sacrifice of style. Both recliners are also swiveling armchairs, when not in reclining mode and thus can serve is an attractive accent chair in any room.
