Design interior case

Un proiect de design interior modern poate părea simplu la prima vedere, dar nu este așa. Într-o casă modernă, trebuie să dispunem de toate obiectele practice, funcționale care ne ușurează și ne îmbunătățesc viața, fără ca interiorul să pară ticsit și îngrămădit. Încorporarea tuturor pieselor de mobilier și a obiectelor indispensabile vieții de zi cu zi trebuie să se încadreze într-o geometrie perfectă, în care fiecare lucru își are locul său, în scopul creării unei perspective de ansamblu spațioase, aerisite, în care excesele și elementele supraîncărcate trebuie evitate cu orice preț.

Designul interior în stil modern se axează totodată pe o amenajare practică a spațiului, cu o volumetrie impecabilă, acesta fiind unul dintre motivele principale pentru care măsurătorile experților și realizarea schițelor 3D inițiale sunt atât de importante în reușita unui astfel de demers. Nimic nu este lăsat la voia întâmplării, pentru a putea oferi clienților noștri

The Next Ford F-150 Lariat Interior Looks All Digital With A Few Important Buttons Left

Truck YeahThe trucks are good!

I’ve been so busy stumbling over myself in a haze of stokedness over the new Ford Bronco that I forgot that we’re almost due for an F-150 update. Check out this freshly leaked set of pictures, showing what sure looks like the next Ford pickup cab interior. And there’s more to look at than the big swaths of screens.

The pictures, shared today on the F150gen14.com forum, seem to show the Lariat trim of a next-gen F-150. We can tell by “Lariat” engraved in a piece of leather and “F-150” on the rubber floormat. For those of you who maybe aren’t big Ford truck followers, Lariat is the low lux spec: Significantly more comfortably appointed than a work truck, not as ornate as a King Ranch or Platinum range-topper.

I only mention this because it’s worth noting there will be both fancier and less-fancy

Interior Summit

This website has been restored and archived as part of Menah Goldman’s seminar series on Crime In International Design & Architecture. Mr. Goldman has worked for a number of design outfits but most recently lead a team of forensic experts to protect individuals from scams conducted by players who take advantage of their unique relationships to defraud victims. For example, after receiving a number of complaints regarding contractor fraud perpetrated by a scammer named George Binakis in New York City, his investigation lead to changes in the recommendation of standard agreements for independent contractors. Witnesses claim that George would tell clients that he had a serious heart condition requiring a pacemaker. This appears to be part of the scam so that when he vanished with the advances, victims would at first believe he had suffered a heart attack or other heart ailment and this would buy time. Mr. Goldman was

Find the right Interior Designers & Decorators

When it comes to the interior design industry in South Africa, the results are quite diverse – a perfect reflection of our country’s different cultures and languages. It would be hard to identify a single interior design style unique to South Africa, as residential- and commercial spaces reflect a variety of designs such as modern, contemporary, rustic, colonial, and even Asian.

The South African design aesthetic undoubtedly draws its inspiration from the international market, staying up to date with the latest trends while also adding its own flair to it.

Many people may immediately imagine animal skins and rustic/earthy colour palettes when thinking about South African interior designs. However, a lot of interior designers and homeowners strive to move away from these clichéd designs. Don’t forget that while interior designers and decorators are there to fulfill the wishes of the clients, the customers also play designer/decorator. The results are uniquely

The 25 Most Influential Interior Designers in L.A.

This story first appeared in the Nov. 2 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.

In a city where the dinner party is a key element in how the industry socializes, the design of a house can be one of the biggest signifiers of where you stand in the Hollywood pecking order — be it in terms of sheer power (think the palatial houses in Beverly Park) or aesthetic cachet (such as an offbeat lair in Venice). When it comes down to it, the entertainment world is all about taste (and the marketing of it), from the choosing of a script and the perfect cast to the small-bore details of set design. A house that telegraphs the right image completes the picture in a statement-making way.

Slate owner Sarah Phaneuf - OLIVER PARINI

  • Oliver Parini
  • Slate owner Sarah Phaneuf

The word “slate” has several meanings. It refers to a building material and a color. The material — a stone that easily splits into flat pieces — is natural; the color is rich. Slate is also the name of a home décor and furnishings shop on Church Street in Burlington. And, for owner Sarah Phaneuf, the word has added significance: It represents a new start, a clean slate.

“It felt fresh,” she said of the name. “We’re doing fun, new things.”

That new start applies to the store owner herself: Three years ago, Phaneuf, 51, moved to Vermont from Arcata, Calif. There she’d founded Baroni Designs, a jewelry business that employed 35 people and worked with artisans in three countries, and opened a home and

Designer Kathryn Ireland shares insider secrets at ‘boot camp’

Kathryn Ireland’s cozy, bohemian aesthetic may seem effortlessly curated — accessible, easygoing and affable, like the designer herself. But a stint on her most recent interior design retreat (or boot camp, depending on your outlook and intention) unveils the 30 years of nurtured relationships, tailored creative instincts and astute business prowess it took to become Kathryn Ireland.

Over one weekend before the coronavirus stay-at-home orders, seven eager participants (and me, a fly on the wall) experienced Ireland’s favorite places to shop in Los Angeles, an insider’s scoop on tricks of the trade and a rare glimpse of her at work (and off the clock).

Six of the women were friends from Tallahassee, Fla., while the other was from L.A.; only three were actual interior designers. One of those, Floridian Elizabeth Fearington Diehl, said she came “because I like to see new vendors, resources and places to tap into for unique
