From Russia With Love: Korneev Design Workshop

This stylish one bedroom apartment in Moscow was designed by renowned Russian Interior Designers Korneev Design Group. Keeping in mind that the client had a smaller budget and a small space, Korneev Design sought to create a fun colorful environment, as well as keeping some of the organic elements already in place. Join us as we take a small tour.

If you have one large space, divide the space into smaller areas using console tables and varying  lighting.

This faux fireplace is a great option for apartments that don’t have one, just add candles!

Fun and quirky lighting is a fantastic way of showcasing the client’s personality.

Ingenious extra storage closets are made to look like stunning double doors.

The beautiful blue walls look great paired with soft whites and stained wood side tables.

A lovely pop of red is never a bad idea!

Reclaimed wood and a Victorian style mirror make this small bathroom one of a kind.

Malibu, California is filled with sandy beaches, celebrity homes, and a whole lot of surfing! Only an hour away from the bustling city of Los Angeles, this affluent Beach city is known to have their fair share of grandiose homes, but we have neverseen a secluded Mediterranean paradise like this one.

 Hand plastered walls, a muted color palette, and stone floors add a subtle Mediterranean feel to this elegant living room.

One of the most amazing views we have seen in a while, this 20 foot wall is made almost entirely out of windows.

Moroccan Architectural details along with the long center mosaic transport you halfway around the globe.

This Turkish throw adds a subtle pop of color, and is without a doubt the center of attention in this master bedroom.

Comfy seating and a view to the immaculate garden, this is quite the office!

Long arches and lush gardens remind us of a Mediterranean castle.

This sofa had to be custom built to fit the space, and well worth it. We would never leave this cute little nook!

A private entrance to a private beach, what more could you ask for.

Nina Garcia's Stylish Manhattan Abode

You might have heard about Nina Garcia, fashion director of Marie Claire, judge on a tiny little show called Project Runway, and an international style icon. We knew that her impeccable sense of fashion would translate beautifully into a home, and we were not disappointing. Architectural Digest was able to capture Nina Garcias’ and Carlos Aparacio’s finished project and we can’t wait to share it with all of you as well. Filled with soft relaxing shades infused with personality, this home is truly a show-stopper.

Pale blue hues add a sense of tranquility to this mid century modern living room, while the modern artwork infuses just the right amount of chaos.

Luxurious raw silk sweeping curtains adorn the large windows. The beige furniture works great against the blue walls.

This amazing Swedish rug  is as unique as Nina herself, and was sent all the way from Milan. Nina states in her interview to AD that she enjoys adding color with rugs since she normally embraces neutral palettes.

Grey cashmere curtains, sculptures, a tufted headboard, create quite the impressive master bedroom.

Filled with the most amazing brands and styles, Nina’s closet is her style sanctuary.

White marbled floors and counter tops, and bold yellow flowers, add dimension to this otherwise white washed room.

Hope you enjoyed the tour! For daily inspiration like us on Facebook!
