This beautiful modern home in the Lithuanian capital Vilnius designed by studio In Arch presents us with intriguing and artistic design solutions, some very trendy materials and furniture design pieces. Entwining black and white with soft accents of gray and wood the design team created a dynamic and modern atmosphere. The amazing floor patterns and mosaics leading into the home, the playful naive art – inspired wall graffiti on the second floor and the combination of comfort and modern in the furniture selection compose a home with expressive character and noteworthy creative decor. Let’s explore!

Our favorite pure-style elegance of urban European chic by the Lithuanian designer Laura Giržadė and her design studio Softdecor. Using her signature design approach that combines trendy furniture pieces, rich textures and modern materials with a characteristic play of laconic shapes and lines, chic velvet accents, and clear geometry the designer successfully composed welcoming and stylish apartment in the Old Town of Vilnius.
The beautiful herringbone parquet that goes throughout the premises smoothly interconnects the different spaces creating a warm and smooth base for the classic and luxurious decor composition. The main living area connects in open floor plan the clear lines of the modern kitchen with its freestanding granite kitchen island that has triple bar-like stools (with modern and trendy lines) and the rest of the social spaces – dining zone and living room.
Monochrome color palette offering subtle variations of gray, white and blueish hints varies throughout the decor arrangement – from light gray and white at the modern furniture assembly of the dining table to darker gray and blue shades in the living room arrangement. The soft sitting area has beautiful deep blue, gray velvet textures and inviting classic inspired sofa and armchair. This smooth transition of colors creates a juxtaposition of shades and defines the different functional areas without actual separation of the home flow.
The decor arrangement of the apartment is simple, elegant and with stylish entwinement of modern and classic hints, spiced up by art details and trendy pieces of furniture, lamps and decorations creating in this way a perfect comfort and easy flow for a dynamic modern lifestyle.

Juju Papers is a wallpaper studio located in the beautiful city of Portland. Since 2010 Avery Thatcher, founder of the studio in Oregon, has tried to bring a fresh, not over-wrought or over-thought, gesture to the room. Now she tries to reach this intent with a new material: cement tile.
Nature pervades the house –the seamless flow of internal floors and ceilings out into external living spaces is mirrored by the fynbos planting which stalks the edges of the internal envelope, enfolds the terraces and decks and seeps into the garden courtyard.
The first house designed and built by our architect studio is located on a small piece of land between Kopřivnice and Štramberk. It was built in a former recreation area where a large, old Chestnut tree was growing in an overrun field. This beautiful tree was a focal point for this property and the house became known as Chestnut House. The small area, orientation of the land and location of the chestnut tree clearly determined the overall atmosphere. The dark brown house surrounded by the lush green landscape mirrors a chestnut breaking out of its thorny green shell. It is built of raw, untreated wood with burnt lining to compliment the solid chestnut tree.
Strong pastel colors giving a character to each premise, contemporary furnishing, sleek lines and marble, brass and copper structures for a luxurious hint – this is the modern project of interior design studio Factory and designer Agnės Stanikūnaitės.
