Dark & Darker

Dark walls are so out of our comfort zones, but we never stop admiring those living or bedrooms with dark walls. It takes one small tip to know under what conditions we should go (or should not) with dark walls.

Light. It all depends on how much light goes inside the space you’d like to make its wall dark. the more light enters the space, the darker you could make its walls, and with little light enters the space, the lighter you should make its walls.

It doesnt matter how large or small the space is, it all depends on the light.

دائما نخاف من الحوائط الغامقه، مع إنها جميله اذا شفناها بمجلات التصميم الداخلي او الفنادق. لكن متى نقدر نغمق الحوائط و متى نحتاج نفتح لونها.
الاضاءه. شكثر كمية ضوء الشمس اللي تدخل المكان، اذا عرفناها راح نقدر نحدد شكثر ممكن نغمق الحوائط. اذا تدخل كمية ضوء كبيره، اذا نقدر نغمق الحوائط كثر مانبي، و العكس صحيح في حالة كمية الضوء قليله.
حجم الغرفه ما له علاقة بدرجة غمق الحوائط.

Very Practical by Nate Berkus

Nate Berkus is an interior designer from the United States, he started working after he graduated from high school. Nate Berkus had his degree in French and Sociology, and not in Interior design, and for me that’s very inspirational, to be able to perfect in interior design without having a degree in it!

Nate Berkus was introduced to the world when he appeared many times at the Oprah show, doing home make overs and giving very useful design tips. He then had his own show in 2010, The Nate Berkus Show.

For me his designs are very accessible and practical. He uses a lot of home accessories and not very matching items to give warmth to the place.

Nate Berkus published his book in interior design call “Home Rules”

You can order Home Rules on http://www.amazon.com

A bit too much? Or a masterpiece

20120612-134047.jpg

Jason Oliver Nixon and his partner John Leocke, two New York based interior designers, separate themselves from other designers by being unique, their style can be described in many words, traditional yet colorful and playful.

Their style can be applied to contemporary and traditional homes at the same time.

Jason shares the technique they use to House & Garden magazine: “When mixing patterns, start with the item in the room that has the largest array of color in it, then take that color range and built the scheme around it by using fabrics that has one or more of colors in that item, then layer, layer, layer”.

Whether it matches your taste or not, to be able to mix this amount of colors and patterns and create a masterpiece out of it is a genious and courageous work.
