Interior Design: Peaceful & elegant apartment by 152 Elizabeth located in New York

Be inspired by this peaceful & elegant apartment designed by 152 Elizabeth located in New York. They have used beautiful materials and a peaceful color palette for a great effect! I am very impressed. See below for the results. 
If there’s something reflected by this apartment, it’s a sense of peace and tranquility. Its elegantly decorated spaces have been created to inspire these feelings and create a place in which to rest and relax after a long day of work. The project was undertaken by the architectural firm 152 Elizabeth and is located in the Nolita district of the city of New York, USA. Its living room is done in soft colors and has been decorated with sober furnishings and blinds that allow the passage of light into the space. A soft and neutral color palette has been employed in the d├ęcor, as well as a variety of textures that have created a carefree and comfortable space that is cozy at the same time. 
Thank you for reading this blogpost.

Interior Design: Wood and metal furniture

I was inspired by this beautiful wood and metal furniture designed by Hilla Shamia, Israeli artist and designer. Hilla Shamia creates beautiful one-of-a-kind wood and aluminum desks and stools using a unique method that marries cold aluminum and beautiful pieces of wood.
The designer has developed a novel way to meld poured aluminum with irregularly shaped wood pieces to create sleek tables and benches. The process preserves that natural form of the tree trunk while still allowing the molten aluminum to flow into the crevices of the wood, slightly burning the area where the two materials meet. For more information, see the enclosed links below.
Thank you for reading this blogpost.

While surfing earlier on internet I saw these beautiful, colorful abstract paintings from the Dutch artist Arie Koning. Arie Koning captures the essence of flowers. He invites you to experience the joy and energy in the deepest heart of the flower, as expressed in the light and colors of his colorful paintings. This particularly gives expression to the deepest core of flower, the nature, the soul of the flower.
Abstracte bloemenschilderijen
Professioneel kunstschilder Arie Koning legt in zijn abstracte schilderijen een wereld vast achter de bloemvormen. Binnen de kunststromingen is ‘abstract’ een richting binnen de moderne kunst waarin niet wordt geprobeerd om objecten uit de natuurlijke wereld exact weer te geven. De abstracte schilderijen van hedendaags kunstschilder Arie Koning onderscheiden zich door de warme kleuren, de diepte, de vreugde en het licht.
Thank you for reading this blogpost.
