Urban contemporary bathroom

Urban contemporary bathroom | Design by Eleni Psyllaki @myparadissi

What happens when you have to design the perfect master bathroom for an incomparable apartment downtown? First, you fly to the moon, then spend an awfully long time visualising it, literally living inside your dreams. So, here's my brainchild. An urban contemporary bathroom, deprived of all unnecessary luxuries but with a generous treatment towards the needs of the inhabitants. And greens. How can I leave greens out of my design? No, can't do that. And that's not just greens, it's a whole (mini) tropical garden happening in an enclosed atrium on the one side of the bathroom.

CONCEPT BOARD: Urban contemporary bathroom

Urban contemporary bathroom design by My Paradissi | Concept Board

If you follow me on instagram, then you probably had the chance to get a sneak peek of the project I've been working on these days. It is a bathroom, a large luxurious bathroom for that matter, with an urban minimalistic design, a black and white color palette interrupted by large portions of tropical greens. How? You'll get to see that in the following days when I'll be uploading the finished images of the room. For now, here is a glimpse of the concept board I created for the bathroom design. What do you think?

2 ALIKE: Pink bathroom tiles

What is it with pink bathroom tiles lately? Pink is definitely a huge color trend but I'm not sure about making such a radical choice of actually covering your bathroom in pink tiles. Feels a bit 70ies, don't you think? On the other hand, I really liked the contemporary minimalistic feeling of the first bathroom with the black grout creating a grid and the matching black fixtures. The pink subway tiles in the shower of the second image have a lovely elegant vibe too. What do you think? Would you be as bold as to use pink tiles in your bathroom?

Contemporary sophisticated kitchen design

Contemporary sophisticated kitchen design by Joseph Dirand forObumex

Hands up for this flabbergasting contemporary kitchen designed by French architect Joseph Dirand for Obumex. The minimalistic design concept influenced by the gossamer lines, the sculptural island, the bold sophisticated marble veins and the dark wood cabinetry visually extending to the floor had me in awe the first moment I laid eyes on these photos. Serious kitchen design inspiration, I tell ya!

I have a thing for these black pendant lamps lately with their sleek minimalistic design and that extra long cord that makes them feel unrefined and laid back. They look equally good in a group or solo. The lamps in the first image are the Pasila Lamps from Innolux and the one in the second image is the Aim Single Pendant Light designed by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec for Flos. Swoon ^^

Is this the new it interior color combo?

It's no news that pastel hues are a huge decor trend right now but have you noticed? They are getting considerably darker and desaturated. As a matter of fact here is my favorite color combination I come across more and more lately. Dusty pink and dark indigo blue matched with unrefined woods, greys or off whites, usually inherited into a scene through rich textured textiles. It feels so sophisticated, down to earth and cozy at the same time. What do you think? Does this color combination rock your world as much as it does mine?

Awesome handmade copper faucets

Is it just my idea or diy copper faucets made from piping are actually pretty rad? The first image is from a nail salon (yes, a totally cool nail salon) in NYC and the second one from a typical grecian island villa bathroom. Both cases, although seemingly completely opposite, sport the handmade fixtures in such an awesome way that makes me have second thoughts on whether to buy or diy a faucet in my next bathroom project. What do you think?


P.s. Here's a great tutorial on building your own faucet and here is a great source of vintage valves and handles you can use. More inspiration on pipe fixtures here and here.

Eclectic beach house in Sydney

No, I'll never get bored of sharing outstanding beach homes, if you ask me. Especially when they are so breezy and welcoming, like the one I posted last week and this one I'm having today. It's like having a bunch of interior photos poking me really hard to switch off and go on extended vacation. Natural woven materials, whites and greys with pops of black, inspiring seating nooks to read and relax, gorgeous art, ethnic references and vintage findings matched with contemporary elements are all parts of this successful equation that leads to this exquisite sophisticated yet casual and laid back home design. Swoon ^^

Outstanding bedroom with bed on floor

Minimalistic bedroom with bed on floor. Design by URBAstudios

This bedroom. OMG. Just found the perfect bedroom to spend the weekend in. To spend the whole summer perhaps? Wouldn't mind that at all. The all low-level design with the bed on the floor feels so fresh and cozy, the color palette is exactly my cup of tea and the natural textiles bring a touch of warmth to the stark concrete floor. Actually, the whole house, designed by URBAstudios, is an exquisite example of minimalistic casual design worth a few moments of your time. Enjoy!

Jaw-dropping outdoor bathroom

Exotic outdoor shower in Fella Villas

Now, who'd like to take a shower among palm trees and tropical plants? Count me in for sure. And, while outdoor showers are a thing we've seen before, a whole outdoor bathroom is not a common concept (not at least in these past two centuries that is :D). Australian swimwear brand Fella has created these exotic inspired villas in Indonesia for rent which, among other beauties, feature this bathroom. Cool or what?

Montauk Beach House by Space Exploration

Beach house in Montauk designed by Space Exploration

I instantly fell in love with the freshness and down to earth coziness of this beach house in Montauk, designed by Space Exploration. Unlike many coastal schemes based on cooler hues of blue and turquoises, this one is dressed in beiges and blacks, unrefined woods, white shiplaps and high roofs, geometric patterns and cushy fabrics. The modernist furniture pieces contrast the abundance of ethnic textiles creating a casual easy living atmosphere while the skylights and large openings  add up to the open air feeling of the various levels that the house is built on. Enjoy!

Hotel Mar Adentro, Mexico

Mar Adentro. Contemporary luxurious hotel in Mexico by Miguel Ángel Aragonés

Hotel Mar Adentro in Mexico is probably one of the coolest built places I've seen in a while. The imagery of this space is out of this world; with its enormous water surface mirroring the bold white architectural forms and the curvaceous paths and central organic cocoon floating with grace on it, it feels like a minimalistic paradise on earth. Just imagine the awe while standing in the middle of this sci-fi like property :O
