Houzz is the new way to design your home.
Love the unusual placement of the colorful tiles to liven up a usually dull surface.
I love red/white/black as a color scheme. Not sure I would want to keep it clean, though.
Highly clever use of corner space.
Very interesting use of space. Would be worried about moisture with a bookshelf around an exterior window, but could be very nice around an interior wall connection or seat. It is very attractive, either way. The hanging basket seating is interesting as well.
Beautiful window. Seems like an Art Nouveau style, simplified.
Black/white/red again. A lovely space, but too spare and modern for me.
I love window seats.
Black/white/red again. I would enjoy visiting this space, but it still feels too antiseptic for me to want to live there.
Clever use of chess theme.
I love high-ceilinged spaces like this.
I love red-hued wood furniture, accents, etc.
Corner drawers = made of win.
Wood storage under fireplace, so that you don't need to take up additional horizontal space. Very nice, as long as it doesn't prevent other desired fireplaces (vertically shared chimney-wise).
French Submarine Clock - $159
Added complexity that isn't gratuitous. The extra round of numbers served a purpose rather than just being added for looks.
Quilled Flowers Wall Clock by Paper Precious
I love quilling, and my main complaint about it is that it is not used in more practical objects. They said, I would have preferred to see quilled numbers or marks, at least in the cardinal directions, in addition to the purely decorative motifs.
Antique Clock Face
Giant clock face definitely fit with my fascination with clockwork. I wonder if this could be refashioned to at least move with some simple gearing, or if the time has been permanently fixed?
Six Digit Nixie Tube Clock, 'Insolito Orologio' by Electronico Designs - $239.95
Love nixie tunes...
