Summer is almost here and we have the perfect inspiration for the season. Discover this small modern house in front of the sea in Greece and mesmerize yourself. We are sure that you’ll love it. It’s modern, sophisticated, fresh and open. It shows great promise!
This incredible house, designed by Eva Sopeoglou, was projected for a family that wanted to spend a low price weekend on Halkidiki, Greece. It’s called “The Olive Tree House” exactly because of the chosen colors and of the olive trees that surround the house.
The summer house it’s located in front of the sea and brings calmness and privacy to the family. The chosen materials and the patterns from the outside provide a fresh and modern feeling.
Because it’s located in Greece, the weather is highly hot and dry. The architect opted for steel to keep the temperature inside and improve the comfort of the family.
This project challenges Architecture and tests creativity and sustainability. It’s the living proof that small houses can be modern and sophisticated without putting the comfort of the family in question.

Orlando Soria designed a modern apartment with a touch of Palm Springs style. It’s located in LA and transmits us a cozy and unique environment. Velvet, white tiles and brown rugs give an amazing twist to this residence. Get inspired!
In the dining area, we have high contrast compared with the living room. Here we put aside punchy colors and we wage on nude shades. White and light brown are the highlight which makes us feel a much softer experience. Once more, plants are present: they are an amazing detail that gives incredible trendy aspects to the area.
Again, contrast is present. We don’t have nude shades anymore, and instead, we have extremely worked green rugs, white modern chairs and a futuristic dining table. The wood bench was designed by Orlando and his son.
Mid-century modern pieces are spread around the house, but this bar chairs are incredible. They are made with the skinniest metal sheets and remind us the ’50s and ’60s. The color, the shape and the size make the design even more amazing. Discover our suggestion and the results will come without much effort.

This residence, located in Bratislava, follows the typical contemporary modern apartment design. Designed by RULES Architects, it brings to us a sophisticated idea with a touch of modernity and simplicity. Get inspired with our suggestion and create your own interior designs!
This apartment is trendy, sophisticated, modern and wide. If you’re looking for inspirations for large spaces with a lot of natural light, discover this residence. It’s everything you’re looking for and will definitely meet your expectations.
Wood ceiling and walls are highlighted. Since the apartment is very contemporary and brown colors are extremely present, the interior designer waged on a more punchy color in some details around the house: yellow. This shade brings life to every home and, when well applied, gives the touch you’re looking for. Try to use it on pillows or paintings and the result will come naturally.
As you can see, also minimalism is present. Not in shades of black and white, but in wood and black. The idea is that the materials stand out and not so much the colors or pieces. Texture is extremely important and is highly present through the apartment.
The right combination of colors put your interior design ideas on another level. Here we have yellow, pastel, gray and black. It’s the perfect fusion for you. We’re fans of this trend and we are sure that you also are. Take the risk and apply these shades in your home. The result will be amazing.
Texture is not only present on the kitchen bench. It’s in every corner of the house. On the paintings, on the rugs, on the side tables… everywhere! And if you think well, it’s the right choice. By applying texture in your home, you’ll feel millions of sensations and experiences: to the touch, but more important, to the eye. Elevate your designs and amaze yourself.
We can’t forget the lighting. The interior designer opted for a round shape piece in tones of black that follow a contemporary line. Take a risk by choosing a more mid-century modern design. That way you’ll create contrast and give a different and unique touch to your home.
Merely mention the name Coltrane and you will feel the deep connection with innovation and the expressive music in jazz. Taking these powerful connections created by John Coltrane, Delightfull‘s designers have created a monumental design that will outstand time. It offers the possibility of inclining the angle of the piece by adjusting the height of the magnet cable at any time.
As well as beautiful designs, functionality is extremely important and we can see that in this modern apartment. Everything is connected, everything is related: colors, materials, pieces, places. Try to fuse your ideas and wait for the result. We’re sure it will be amazing.
The bedroom follows the contemporary design of the living room and the kitchen. Wood is the most used material and it’s spread around all the room. Nude shades are highlighted and patterns stand out. Wage on these little details and sophistication, modernity and refinement will come naturally. Inspire yourself.

This private house is extremely contemporary. Soft colors are the highlight, but Cristopher Ward wanted something different. He wanted a punchy detail, so he waged on green chairs to give that touch. These chairs are greatly sophisticated and achieve the final goal: bring contrast to the residence.
Wood is extremely used trough the house. The interior designer wanted to furnish ceilings and stairs with this material to create the feeling of connection and continuance. It gives a subtle but modern touch and elevates the design to another level.
The lighting on this house is an important aspect. Cristopher waged on modern pieces with unique details and, as you may know, we are huge fans of mid-century modern designs. We have the perfect inspiration for you. Discover this amazing piece and try to combine it with your home ideas!
A contemporary descendant of retro sphere lighting, Atomic Suspension Lamp, by Delightfull, is a spot-on interpretation of the atomic age design. A set of glossy black and gold plated round shades, aligned by an asymmetric composition to enhance non-conventional molecular forms. As each shade evokes a petrifying effect, it’s ideal to be placed in a modern living room to surprise your guests, as well as in a modern lobby. A breathtaking design inspired in 50’s legacy.
This home follows the current trend because it has a unique aspect that makes a completely different touch: texture. The interior designer didn’t stop with wood materials or edgy colors, he applied stone tiles into the living room walls. Here we have a more gray ambiance but highly sophisticated and cozy at the same time. Perfect for your home design ideas.
After the living room, we go straight to the kitchen. Here we have a more minimalistic space with white colors and steel applications. The wood is also present wich gives the contrasted idea that Cristopher wanted. It’s an excellent inspiration for you and if you like it, it will amaze you and your guests. It’s perfect!
The bedroom is very important in a home. It’s your privacy, your intimacy. The interior designer waged on very simple pieces and applications. He wanted simplicity and it’s exactly what it transmits to us. Again, the wood on the floor for a more rustic aspect and white walls for a clear sensation.
Amy Table Lamp, by Delightfull, is a tribute to the great British singer and songwriter. Outlined by the black of her hair and her round earring… The inside is in gold like her golden voice. The irreverent table version will surely look great on top of a desk or sideboard. Handmade in brass and with its lampshades in aluminum exactly like it was made in the 50’s. A new design star.
To finish, Cristopher Ward extended the sophistication and refinement of the interior to the exterior. For him, a place right in the middle of nature to rest and experience good moments would be perfect. He created a space with unique pieces where pastel colors are highlighted. We believe that this private house is the perfect inspiration for you and we are sure that you loved it!
