Black Elegance

 Black is a relaxing, elegant and sexy, it is in everything from frames to photographs. I prefer to use basic black furniture and build around it with color the basic black dress anything goes with it.

 Using black in your larger and most costly items then allows you to go crazy with accent pieces and color schemes, which you can change as often as you like.

Look at design magazines, furniture catalogues and showroom displays today, and you're likely to see more than just a touch of black. Kelly Wearstler uses basic black to enhance most of her designs like the pictures above.

Tuscan Design Kitchens

Rustic Tuscan Kitchen Check out the website, some girl tried a new diet and tracked her results:

Wood rustic counter tops bring old world charm to this design.

Although this would be way too expensive to do I would take some of the ideas and find a cheaper way to incorporate it into my existing kitchen. Example: backsplash design and the chandelier:

The accent wall of wood is spotlighted and quite different from a normal display, continue reading to see what it is actually used for, which will surprise you.

The low lighting offers a soothing feel and is perfect for relaxing in your bathing environment to offer a spa like feeling.

Giolitti by Fabio Fantolino: Located in the center of Turin. The living area, is opposed to the sleeping are of cozy and intimate spaces.

In the lounge, the resin and baked brushed brown oak, give balance to a living room that with the sofas, rugs and chairs make this environment full of atmosphere.

The Interiors are embellished with precious materials such as the pantry: built as a vintage cabinet using old woods make it a centerpiece for display.

The Beauty of Black In Home Decor

Using black as a basic allows you to mix colors and make it POP!!! My favorite, my kitchen is black and it allows me to mix and change colors as I please. As you can also see, it looks great with concrete or wood.

Stunning Glass House

Clear glass walls, talk about transparency, this has a feel of class and airiness. I built two homes and designed them, I thought my homes were glass houses but this is the epitome of a glass home.

Just take this all in as you view the indoor rooms to the skyline of buildings and a view of the sea.

You may have a dilemma of walking into walls, and I would not want to clean them myself for sure.

I love the stacked concrete, it's like looking at a sculpture garden.


Well,  this view might be worth it for sure. Look closer to the right, I would have to say NO to the open bathroom.

Ah, and now we see the spa and shower at the end, no modest people here!!!

Stunning at night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Description by NAF Architect & Design

This building is based on a simple system of stacking large concrete blocks of 1.0 m x 1.0 m x 1.5m like building blocks on top of one another to make a structure with big undulation like breakwater or wave-dissipating blocks. These large concrete blocks are manufactured at any cement factory in Etajima city, Hiroshima, at a very low price as excess cement is reused and often used for surface of retaining wall or anchors of rafts for cultured oysters. These large concrete blocks are manufactured from leftover concrete whenever there is an order of concrete at cement factory, as there will always be a surplus, and sold as a product instead of discarding. As concrete blocks are manufactured at such a rate, according to the operation situation of the factories, the construction progressed according to the pace of the manufacture of the concrete blocks. The construction of this building was not based on the time schedule, as in standard construction progress, but waited for the stock of large concrete blocks to continue the work; a “slow architecture” perceived ridiculous in modern construction work.
Groove is cut on the surface of these blocks to have them lifted by cranes. By stacking blocks to make vertical line of this groove, reinforcing steel can be placed through the blocks to secure quake resistance. This method of stacking is made standardized to give variation of direction and intervals; at a place giving view and making passage of the wind and at another place securing the privacy.
Overall composition of the building consists of roof and transparent glass to enclose interior space with the aforementioned concrete block structure. There is no roof over the concrete blocks. Therefore rays of the sun pour over the blocks, and the reflection of the light shines inside the house. Furthermore, vines of various flowers will be planted along the block, changing breakwater-like structure to a hill of flower and greenery in the future.
Mass of stacked large concrete blocks is far too enormous as a structure of a building, and the silhouette is far from ordinary. The building also has a function of landscape which controls wind, light and green, leading these factors interior and giving freedom to the interior space which exceed the form of conventional architecture.
