Book. «Carpets. Handbook»

For those who are "in love" with Oriental carpets for a long time and hopeless, I want to recommend a rare book, in its informative and fullness. The book is called " Carpets. Directory", author Mehdi Zarif, Astrel publishing house, Moscow, 2006.

The smart little things. Hallway.

The hallway room in the house means a lot! Someone calls it the "calling card" of the house, but for me the hallway is the" key", the room is the Preface to the story about the house.

Exhibition Florence Creativity

Yesterday I visited the exhibition Florence Creativity and I can not share with you! It is quite difficult to surprise me - I visit exhibitions almost every month. But, this captivated me with its unusual atmosphere!

The Book. "Organized house"

The atmosphere of a house...from what "puzzles" develops this feeling?

Whether the harmonious atmosphere of the house is reached only by ideal architecture?

In many European countries, it is considered good form to lead an eco-friendly lifestyle. As part of this movement, "gaining momentum" slogan "for a long vacation."

The idea of Scandinavian design.

Being in Scandinavia, you begin to notice the beauty of ordinary things, even if it is something very simple.

The nature of Scandinavia is very different. Denmark is very different from Sweden, despite the fact that they are close neighbors.

Northern Sweden is a bit like Finland, but you still feel the difference in both the natural landscape and the architecture and way of life of people.

Travel. Irbensky Strait. Impression.

Dawn over the Irbensky Strait of the Baltic sea, about 5 o'clock in the morning...Friends, you will agree that the free breathing of this photo resembles Mark Rothko's "multi-forms", his pure, unapologetic emotions on huge canvases, not limited by size, neither by frames, nor by the plot!

The entrance door Lighting. The practical suggestion.

The first impression can not be forgotten, everyone knows it. And the first thing we see in the house is the front door. Therefore, the lighting of the front door is a great way to create a favorable impression and provide a comfortable light for yourself and your guests. And properly lit space in front of the front door visually expands the space of the House.
