The next home, another small space, uses those Scandinavian elements in a more subdued and earth way. While the design does not shy away from white, there is a lot more natural wood and dark leather to offset the white walls and ceilings. A mix of woods gives the home a purposefully eclectic feel and once again midcentury elements are used sparingly to great effect. The home greatly benefits from a large bookshelf that stretches from floor to ceiling, giving an otherwise empty wall a sense of purpose and making it easy to change up the look of it by just shuffling around a few knick knacks.Three different homes that use white, wood, and stylish design elements to invoke the Scandinavian style.

Once inside, drama largely gives way to playfulness. Despite a leaning towards black and white (hence the name of the project), there is actually a great deal of color inside. From electric orange dining chairs - where lucky dinner party guests can await the next course - to deep purple armchairs that would be just as suited to a Prince listening party as to an after dinner cocktail.This brightly decorated house in Washington, DC is the perfect retreat for a young, fun couple who loves to cook.

The living, kitchen, and dining space all have easy communication with one another. In order to make this possible, the design has to both separate and connect the disparate spaces. Patterns and unique design elements manage to do this well. In the kitchen, a half wall made out of wood slats creates more division but still allows light and air to flow through. Similarly, a swirled rug design in the living room contrasts a checked pattern in the entryway, which makes it easier to divide spaces.An apartment in Lviv makes good use of space and design for a modern, open feel.
