The Housing Fair Finland 2013 is the largest housing and living event in Finland. This fair provides the opportunity to visit and admire different living solutions and residential areas. Finnish magazine Deko is participating to the fair with our their own housing-fair home called Maja. The interior is designed by the residents themselves, with the help of Deko editor-in-chief Ulla Koskinen. Solid concrete floor, calm white surfaces and unique details make the place modern and minimal with an industrial touch.
This minimalist villa in Arhus, Denkmark, is designed by Wienberg Architects. The house, measuring only 936 square foot (87 square meters), is bathed in natural light. The exterior consists of clads with vertical panels of wood in a black color with square window varying sizes. The choice of material is consistent throughout the entire house: the old part is kept entirely in a white interior. In the newly build part there is the kitchen in a white combined with steel and concrete.
I featured this gorgeous restaurant on my other blog The Travel Files today. But as I love it so much I want to share some pictures here on The Style Files as well. If you’d like to read more (+ see more photos) about Muy Mio just jump to The Travel Files here.
First of all, I’d like to wish you a happy summer! I hope you’re having a wonderful time with lots of fun, sunshine and quality time with loved ones and friends. I will continue blogging as usual but the style files will get a new design in a few weeks time. And I would like to ask you for your help. I would be grateful if you could let me know what you like best about the style files and which topics or styles you would like to see more. Would you like to see more fashion, do you want to know where you can buy similar products featured in the images, or perhaps you would like to read about more practical interior related things for example. Let me know so I can make the style files a better blog! You can leave a comment or send me an email (danielledelange [at] gmail [dot] com).
This image (above) of an all black outfit inspired me to do this ‘all black chic’ post. Below you can find some examples of outfits entirely in black. Black is such a versatile color (suitable for various occasions) and it is therefor the most reliable color in our wardrobe. Wearing all black is just très chic!
The home of designers Ludovica Serafini and Roberto Palomba was recently featured in Dwell Magazine. The old 17th century mill in the South Easter part of Italy has been renovated and now serves as a vacation home for the couple to escape the hectic city life in Milan. The house is decorated in a modern style (with some furniture designed by the owners themselves) which gives an interesting effect in the centuries old building. One of the major challenges faced during the renovation was the old structure’s lack of windows. To solve this the architects carved out a number of skylights and opened up the back of the structure to create a patio, letting daylight flood in.
