Cool, Calm and Coordinated

Villa 118 by Denis RakaevA cool space often looks best in a calm, orderly interior design scheme. A good example is this sleek villa on the outskirts of Kiev, designed by architect Denis Rakaev, which uses a restrained colour palette and carefully selected design elements to create a beautifully coordinated look.  

For instance, the wood used in the vaulted ceiling and floorboards are in the same caramel tone as the leather chairs throughout the house, which provide a warm contrast against the black metal frames of the shelves, window frames and light fixtures. Minimalist shapes and patterns are applied to great effect, especially the repeated use of the chevron pattern (in both wood and marble wall panelling) as well as the round mirrors and light fixtures. The sober colour palette of black, grey, white and caramel complements the key textures of wood, metal and marble well. Together, they create a mature and sophisticated atmosphere which oozes style and masculinity.

Shutter House by State of Kin

Japanese zen style goes far beyond minimalist white spaces. It is about thoughtful spaces which encourage the contemplation of light, colours, textures and shapes - the building blocks of nature and beauty. The Shutter House in Perth is a great example.

Terrazzo Things from Lick My Brick

There was a time when the use of marble was largely restricted to floors, posh kitchen counters and grave statutes. And then, at some point around the mid-noughties, marble was everywhere. Could the same be happening to terrazzo?
