Outdoor Furniture: Innovative lounge bed 'Hut' by Marco Lavit for Ethimo

 While surfing tonight on internet I found this innovative lounge bed called 'Hut' designed by Marco Lavit for Ethimo. It received the Design Awards as Winner 2020. What a great design to see! It looks so inviting and comfortable. Love the round shape too. :-) Be Inspired .......  

More about Hut:
Hut is a welcoming and comfortable nest, where you can relax in harmony with nature. The long 'stems' of the structure reproduce the shapes of a tepee, while the metal inserts and details define the large seat, covered with soft cushions. Hut is a wellbeing project with a contemporary and ecofriendly soul. The external "shell", like the large lounge bed, are made of Siberian Larcie or Accoya®, a solid and high-performance wood, FSC certified. This innovative type of wood is obtained through non-toxic treatments of the raw material, which allow to maintain the versatility and appearance of the original material, ensuring exceptional stability, durability and resistance, while respecting the environment. Hut has no restrictions on the ground, it can be moved and customized with an elegant curtain, which allows you to 'close' the nest, ensuring a constant and pleasant passage of air and protecting from direct sunlight.

Painting colors: Top selling Benjamin Moore Blues ......

I am in love with these lovely soft blue hues from Benjamin Moore. I always had some blue colors like these in every house I have lived before. I am not surprised that the colors below are top selling colors at Benjamin Moore. They are inviting, fresh and pleasant to see. You can also use them very well for homestaging, to sell your house quicker as they give a soft and harmonious atmosphere in house. Here they are: Boothbay gray, Breath of fresh air, November skies, MT Rainer gray, Nimbus gray, Quiet moments, Santorini, Van Cortland blue, Van Deusen blue. I wrote earlier a blog about the positive effect of the color blue for homestaging, see THIS LINK Be Inspired .....

This photo is an example of the positive effect of using a blue hue for the kitchen.

Garden Design: Beautifully landscaped home gardens in Venice, Tuscany & Connecticut

Garden of a family home outside Venice renovated by Studio Peregalli
I guess you've noticed already how much I love gardens and flowers. This morning I saw on internet some beautifully landscaped home gardens from Architectural Digest (I always love to read their inspiring articles). They showed here many landscape photos (52 ph.), but I decided to chose 3 garden photos to give you a quick impression. The 1st photo is a lovely garden of a family home outside Venice renovated by Studio Peregalli. What a Beauty to see! The 2nd photo is the garden of Sting & Trudie Styler's home in Tuscany created by landscape designer Arabella Lennox-Boyd. I wrote earlier a blog about this stunning landscape design: BLOG STING TUSCANY And the 3rd photo is the gorgeous rose garden at the Connecticut home of Tommy & Dee Hilfiger. Be Inspired ........
