Completed in 2009, it was designed by Munich-based architectural practice terrain for the city of Gosdorf in Austria. Made of steel and aluminium, the tower is intentionally incongruous in its Styria forest setting. Visitors to the tower enjoy revolving views of nature, as they ascend and descend its double spiral stairs. At its peak, a platform rests twenty-seven metres above the ground, offering views across the treetops of the wonderful riparian forest. It would appear that Norway is a country with many vantage points. Utsikten—or ‘the view’—was designed by Oslo-based Code Arkitektur. The rather quirky triangular viewing platform perches at the top of Gaular mountain on Norway’s western coast. With its raised corners, Utsikten affords three different viewpoints.

It is smooth and silky, the perfect choice for furniture or rugs in the living room or media room especially. It can be a little more on the costly side than a lot of other options, and it takes some special care to keep it looking great, but it is worth it if you want the perfect horse touch in any space. To find horsehair decor, it is usually easiest to use online resources unless you know a place that sells this type of accent. Artwork is the most common representation of the horse in our homes, from beautiful and stylish framed prints to busts, statues, miniatures, figures, and horses of all sizes and shapes. They can be incorporated into almost any decor style, even the most elegant styles, with the right artistic medium. For instance, a heavy bronze horse statue makes a perfect table or mantel centerpiece, while prints of painted ponies in matching white frames are very cute for a little girls bedroom. Another example would be matching classy bookends on a wood-finish bookcase or mantel, made from clay, silver, bronze, wrought iron, or even wood, depending on the rest of the rooms decor.

Succulents are an ever-popular planter choice, and many modern design lovers create succulent gardens and plantscapes that feature a range of plants in different colors and forms. Reserving a couple of planters for seasonal flowers will give you a spot for an ever-evolving garden of blooms. Don’t be afraid to get inspiration from commercial landscaping. Office buildings and outdoor shopping centers are just two of many locations that often showcase large planters filled with flowers. Note the different color combinations, and snap photos of your favorites so you can take them to your local nursery to find out more about the plants.

Focus on natural materials like wood and stone or marble for those pieces. Trust us — it is unlikely that they will ever go out of style.

A driveway is the first impression your home makes and if you have sworn your house to modern decor, the driveway should reflect that – preferably through design ideas that feel current and fresh. Minimalism is something that never looks boring, despite the lack of decorative items. Take this minimalist driveway as an example. It has a sophisticated look that feels very welcoming and doesn’t make your eyes wander anywhere else. A driveway with stone pavers has a noticeable look that separates it from the concrete road. The appearance of this driveway is rather simplistic, although the copper undertones in the color palette give it a unique dynamic.

Apart from complimenting your newly painted walls with soft furnishings and effective flooring, home decor accessories in a room are just as equally important. Accessories ranging from flowers in a contemporary vase to art pictures hanging on your walls, all add the finishing touches to any room. Above all, accessories add personality to a room, they inject your own personal touch making your home unique to you and comfortable and inviting for you and your family. You will be surprised at the important role that art pictures play in home decor accessories. Not only do pictures add your own personality into the room, they absorb noise and can actually help change the illusion of a rooms shape if placed in the right places.

Museum-style track lighting increases the perception that one is in an art gallery. Certain soothing details such as soft features and warm neutral colors create a grounding, casual atmosphere. There‘s also a fun dose of pop art: A handmade “Open“ sign, built from a wine crate and neon wording, hangs from the loft and illuminatesdepictions of both Queen Elizabeth of England and Chairman Mao.
