Ikea Wardrobe made personal

Diana, a Dutch woman living in Germany with her husband and 2 daughters, decided one day that the Ikea bought wardrobe in her daughters bedroom was a bit plain and boring. Armed with a can of green paint, a drill and some neon wool, this creation was born. Although it may not be everybody’s cup of tea, it is inspiring none the less. When companies such as Ikea take over the market, we are drenched in products that everyone else owns, so why not customise it and let it stand out!? The patterns were created by drilling holes in the doors and letting her children create the patterns with neon wool.

Sticks is a cabinet system with boxes in four different widths and four different heights, standing on one leg. The total height of each Stick can always be different, because of the four different lengths of the legs (the sticks). The Sticks can be used as a lowboard, as a sideboard and as casual wardrobe (varying in height) or loose as a hall cabinet or bedside table. Available from Gerard De Hoop.

Colour Blocks in a Kitchen

The 727 Forest Street Residence was designed by studio 3BY Architecture and is located in Denver, Colorado, USA. A key principle in in interior design is ‘White is Bright’. Many believe that if you wash all areas in white it will open up the room and make it seem bigger. The fatal flaw many people fall into is to make everything white, all you need is to add a splash of colour. Love the way these designers have added the red into the kitchen area. Using glossy surfaces also helps in the overall opening up of a room, allowing light to bounce off all the surfaces.

Citti Modular Storage

Really like the way this really is customisable. Many products and furniture boast this feature, without actually satisfying the means. This range by Zweed in Sweeden is a beautiful yet simple design. Width and height can be adjusted by changing the boxes around. Each piece is made to your order, and the manufacturers can paint it to any colour choice. Doors and drawers are also available as an option should you wish to hide the things you store. Boxes are made from painted/lacquered MDF and the legs are lacquered Birch.
