Turett Collaborative Architects, the architecture firm that designed the penthouse with a steel slide in the East Village, has recently completed another innovative space, this one a triplex penthouse on the Upper East Side. A spokesperson for the firm tells us “the attention to detail on this [project] is unusually high — even by our standards.” This was driven by the client, who was interested in unique solutions rather than compromises.

The 73rd Street Penthouse, It was a nice collaboration between client and architects where homeowner traveled with architect Wayne Turrett to a remote quarry in the Swiss alps to hand pick the stone for the double-height wall around the 15-foot-wide fireplace.

Seasonal white interior design

Use white the right way in your home...

Seasonal white interior design

White interior decors are actually very common. Nevertheless, they tend to seem more striking during this particular time of the year. When everything is white and snowy outside, it’s much easier to notice the resemblance with the interior in cases like this one. This particular interior design is very interesting not only because of the huge amount of white in there but also because of the way everything else seems to complement the house and the way the other colors stand out.

Usually we use white when we either have a small home and we want to make it seem bigger or when we simply want to have an airy and bright interior décor. In this case it’s probably both reasons. Notice how all the rooms have white walls and ceilings. This creates uniformity throughout the house and makes all the room seem so airy and spacious. That’s not only because of the colors but also because the furniture is minimalist and features pale colors such as grey or natural brown.

I love the way the interior of this house reminds me of a black and white movie but with small insertions of color. Also, it’s interesting how the designer incorporated natural elements inside without using clichés. There aren’t any fresh plants in there but only dead trees or leafless plants.{pics from site}

Staying Frugal with Your Apartment Interior Design

How frugal are you?

Staying Frugal with Your Apartment Interior Design

One of the main goals of almost every apartment interior design is finding ways to save money while still making the apartment a place you will want to come to relax after work. It may seem like an impossible task to handle, but decorations and furniture are really cheap enough these days to make all of your dreams a reality at a low price.

After all, you don’t have a lot of space to cover in an apartment, so you should be able to fill all the gaps while still being able to hold onto the money in your wallet.

Your home is where you can really showcase your personality and create your own personal sanctuary.

No one can tell you what to do in your own apartment, and that’s one of the best things about apartment interior design. The only restriction on what you can do with your apartment will come from your own bank account.

You have to be able to express yourself with the design of your apartment because that is the only way you are going to be able to relax at the end of the day. Everything in the room needs to match your personality, so the colors, decorations and furniture all need to symbolize something meaningful in your heart.

This may seem like something that is impossible to achieve on a tight budget, but the truth of the matter is that anyone can get what they want in their own apartment for a low price.

Taking on the challenge of frugal apartment interior design

The first thing you need to do when you realize that you don’t have a lot of money to spend on your apartment interior design is decide that you are going to take this challenge head on. Don’t think of the negative sides of not having too much money to spend because that will only work to make you more frustrated as time goes on. You need to be happy with what you have if you are going to be able to build a calm and relaxing atmosphere in your apartment.

Anyone who has a roommate should find themselves in great luck because you will be able to split the costs of all the furniture and living room materials right down the middle. Hopefully your roommate is someone who shares the same desire as you when it comes to creating a quality home. You should never decide that you are going to buy all of the furniture and materials for the living room if your roommate has decided that they don’t care about the living room at all and don’t plan on paying for it.

Display objects and items that are important to you

While the majority of your apartment is going to be stuffed with furniture, you should also make sure you have room for the things that are important to you. Any piece of artwork or special family portrait should be displayed somewhere in your apartment to show off your own personality. This is one of the main staples of apartment interior design.

Original Pillows Featuring Vintage Cameras Painted on Canvasses

We featured quite a few interesting camera-inspired home items on Freshome and are happy to see that design ideas are still on a roll when it comes to photography. For today we would like to present this original vintage pillow collection featuring vintage cameras painted on canvasses. I have to say I am not all that impressed with the overall appearance of the pillows, but the concept behind make them fun and appealing. The Vintage Amica Eyelux camera was used as a model for this collection. The items have different shapes and sizes, which may trigger the idea of decorating a themed-style room. The pillows go great in a modern and minimalist interior, adding a contrasting vintage touch. You can purchase them online at, for $42. Would you consider having one in your home?
