the carpet comes up, the hardwood goes down.

preparations begin for the coffered ceiling. i know…it looks weird at first, doesn’t it?

the ceiling is almost finished. we also installed a surround and wiring for a television above the fireplace.

a look towards the kitchen.

you can see the paint colors i was testing out.

the hole connecting the room to the kitchen…

getting there…

this is the only shot that you can actually see a little bit of the wood valance over the windows.

the paint going up.

Design Is a Noun

From the time you wake up to the time you go to sleep, design plays a role in your everyday life. Design makes ideas tangible, translating them into physical form. Someone is responsible for designing the things we consume, use, and interact with every day, be they objects, spaces, landscapes, or communications and transportation systems. Every moment, we encounter a set of solutions to a problem that has been considered by someone, or as Paola Antonelli, Curator of Architecture and Design at MoMA, has said: “Everything is designed, one way or another.”1

Breathtaking Luxury Ravishing Living Rooms


It’s the second day of the week and here we are, talking about luxury in home design. We are sure, that at one point in your lives, you have met or actually know Architects, Designers and Decorators. Maybe talked to them about how to go about in starting to create your dream house or to renovate or recreate the existing design that you have at home – whether it will be for the facade of your house, or the interiors of your home!

We would like to quote Audre Lorde when he said, “for women, poetry is not a luxury. It is a vital necessity of our existence.” Well, we are not really talking about poetry in this list, but like in all other art form, designing our homes is like a vital thing for us since there is always something that we want to add, or something that we
