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!

Let’s go a little off topic today. Friday the 13th is a date marked as a bad day for hundreds of years. The fear of this day is so spread that it has a name: friggatriskaidekaphobia.
Where does the superstition around Friday the 13th come from? There are a lot of theories. For example, did you know that the Last Supper’s 13th guest was Judas, who betrayed Jesus whose crucifixion was the next day, a Friday? This is just one of the coincidences that are used as an explanation for the fear of Friday the 13th.
So Home Design Ideas has a challenge for you! In this post I’m going to present to you seven mysterious and abandoned mansions! The question is simple: Would you spend this night on one of these places?
Muromtzevo Mansion, Russia
Russian architect P.S. Boitzov built many French-style medieval castles in the 19th century–but Muromtzevo Mansion is by far the most spectacular of them. Looking as if it was taken from a fairy tale, this mansion stirs our mind with all sorts of stories – enchanting and mysterious.
Sutton Scarsdale Hall, England
Sutton Scarsdale Hall may be a shadow of its former self, but its impressive ruins leave no doubt that it was once one of the finest stately homes in northern England. Located in Derbyshire, the abandoned mansion was commissioned in 1724 and owned by the Arkwright family for almost 100 years. In 1919 a group of local businessmen asset-stripped the building, selling its grand internal fittings to the highest bidder. The ruins of Sutton Scarsdale are now managed by English Heritage, while some of its treasures have now found their way to the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
Villa de Vecchi, Lake Como, Italy
Located in the mountains east of Lake Como in Italy, this wonderful abandoned Baroque mansion is known locally as “Villa de Vecchi”, or the Ghost Mansion. The building has been derelict for years and according to urban legend, was the scene of a murder or suicide. While an effort is underway to save and restore the abandoned mansion, its future remains uncertain.
The Ruins, Philippines
Known as “The Ruins”, this striking structure in the Philippines is the skeletal remains of the home of young sugar baron Don Mariano Ledesma Lacson. Located in Talisay City, Negros Occidental, the grand house was reportedly set alight by US forces during World War Two in a bid to prevent the Japanese using it as a headquarters. Dating to the 1900s and beautifully preserved as a tourist attraction, the completely see-through Ruins is arguably one of the most wonderful and compelling abandoned mansions in the world.
Callert House, Scotland
Callert House, an abandoned Georgian Mansion on the shores of Loch Leven in Scotland, has been unoccupied since the 1940s. Built for Sir Duncan Cameron of Fassifern in the 1830s to replace a previous structure that burned down, the house stands completely derelict. Reports of hauntings persist in the area, including a mysterious ball of fire that’s said to manifest near Callert House and vanish into the loch.
Pidhirtsi Castle, Pidhirtsi, Ukraine
This castle, built between 1635 and 1640, was once richly furnished, but during World War I, Russian soldiers destroyed the lavish interior. Later, the castle belonged to prince Roman Sanguszko, who removed some of its valuable furnishings in 1939 and took them to Brazil. After WWII, the Soviets reopened it as a Tubercolosis sanitarium, but in 1956 the old castle caught fire and burned for three weeks, destroying the last of its interior beauty. The Lviv Gallery of Arts is trying to restore the building, but at present, there aren’t any visible changes.
Château Miranda, Celles, Belgium
Château Miranda was built in 1866 by an English architect for the Liedekerke-Beaufort family. The family lived there until World War II, when it was taken over by the National Railway Company of Belgium. It’s empty since 1991, in part because the family refuses to turn it over to the municipality of Celles.
So…would you spend tonight on any of these abandoned houses? They sure are beautiful but very mysterious. Have a nice Friday the 13th. Enjoy
