                                A couple in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, reached out to <a href="http://resetarchitecture.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Reset Architecture</a> after purchasing a plot of land in 2013. Their request was rather out of the ordinary in that they were requesting the firm to just design the house and to let them build it themselves. Appropriately named the <a href="http://resetarchitecture.com/portfolio/diy-house/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">DIY House</a>, the project required simple construction methods so they could do a majority of the work with little need for help from the outside. While it took them much longer than it would have had they gone the traditional route, they can take pride in the finished results.
The house is shaped like a minimalist cube with a facade that’s divided into two parts, the upper portion clad in black plates and the lower section’s horizontal boards being painted in 50 shades of green. The exterior immediately sets the tone with a gradient that was inspired by the collaborative

The minimalist design, known as <a href="http://brunocarvalhoecamilaavelar.com.br/portfolio-posts/casa-cor-rj-2018/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Urban Refuge</a>, is surrounded by nature and features a circulation pattern around the perimeter which keeps the interior connected and filled with natural light.
The public area boasts a relaxed feel with the use of warm woods and cozy textures, along with plenty of greenery on both sides. The floor-to-ceiling windows frame tropical views that help the division of interior and exterior disappear. The compact Ornare kitchen faces a large dining table big enough to seat a large family. Passageways on either side lead to the bedroom at the back. The light wooden floors flow throughout the entire space adding to the cohesive design.

The <a href="https://www.behance.net/gallery/68549079/pushka"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">PUSHKA apartment</a> is located in a historic building in Kiev, Ukraine, and spans 180-square meters over two floors. The architects incorporated modern elements that perfectly balance the historic features, like original brickwork, wood ceiling joists, and sloped walls in the attic.
A monochromatic color palette was chosen as it worked well with the architectural details throughout. The brickwork was painstakingly restored and it offers a warm and textured backdrop to the main level living space. The corner fireplace was given new life as the focal point of the sitting room. White panels help brighten the interior while creating a feeling of continuity on the first floor. A hand-assembled metal staircase connects the ground floor with the attic space. Upstairs, the layout is divided into three areas –

The Arch-Inspired Arkad Pouf Collection by Note Design Studio for Zilio A&C

                                Stockholm-based <a href="http://notedesignstudio.se/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Note Design Studio</a> designed a family of poufs for <a href="http://www.zilioaldo.it/en/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Zilio A&amp;C</a> inspired by architecture. After experimenting with various architectural shapes, they discovered they were drawn to arches when they turned the negative space within the arch into a positive form. Lining up multiple positive arches together transformed them into an arcade, which is where the collection got its Swedish name – <a href="http://www.zilioaldo.it/en/collection/arkad-1"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Arkad</a>.
A singular arch has a familiar, recognizable shape but when grouped together they become less about the shape and more about the rhythmic pattern as seen on the curved surfaces of the seats. The sculptural poufs come in three shapes – a curved corner unit and straight units in two different lengths – that can be grouped together or used individually in offices, lounges, and even residential settings.

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/hanna-sarokaari-designs-the-adjustable-verso-vertical-plant-stand/verso_plantwall-plants-hanna_sarokaari-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/10/Verso_plantwall-plants-hanna_sarokaari-1-810x926.jpg" alt="Hanna Särökaari Designs the Adjustable Verso Vertical Plant Stand" /></a>
                                Fresh off its debut at Habitare during Helsinki Design Week, the <a href="http://www.hannasarokaari.fi/designs/verso/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Verso</a> plant stand offers a new way to display your plants. Designed by Helsinki-based designer <a href="http://www.hannasarokaari.fi/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Hanna Särökaari</a>, the foldable stand allows you to grow multiple groups of plants or herbs within its rectangular containers while having the freedom to move or adjust them thanks to its screen-like design.
Verso comprises three connected modules that provide the ability to move them back and forth for a variety of looks. As the plants grow over time, they’ll fill in the empty spaces creating an ever-changing piece that can be used as a room or space partition. It works inside or out on balconies, patios, or even in the garden.

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/kaikaya-is-the-first-tropical-sushi-restaurant-opens-in-valencia/kaikaya-restaurant-masquespacio-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/10/Kaikaya-restaurant-Masquespacio-1-810x540.jpg" alt="Kaikaya Is the First Tropical Sushi Restaurant Opens in Valencia" /></a>
                                When an avid surfer wanted to open the first tropical sushi restaurant in Valencia, Spain, she reached out to <a href="http://masquespacio.com/en/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Masquespacio</a>, a design studio <a href="https://design-milk.com/tag/Masquespacio/"  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">known for their colorful and sometimes quirky interiors and furnishings</a>. The goal for the design was inspired by the owner&#8217;s life when she lived in Brazil, along with a touch of Japan. The finished <a href="http://masquespacio.com/en/kaikaya/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Kaikaya</a> features bold colors and an eclectic style that result in a relaxed and casual atmosphere for pure gastronomic enjoyment.
Circles of raffia reference the kasa hats that Japanese workers wear in the rice fields. Tropical plants are interspersed in empty pockets adding to the Brazilian vibe. Kaikaya’s fusion menu is reflected in the restaurants decor where Masquespacio merged traditional and methodic elements of Japan with the tropical and exotic flavors of Brazil and then dropped them in the center of Valencia. A festive palette of colors make the tile patterns pop,

                                Interior designers Carla Barconte and Ludmila Drudi, of <a href="https://www.instagram.com/estudioplok/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Estudio Plök</a>, and architect <a href="https://www.instagram.com/marianapaccieri.arquitectura/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Mariana Paccieri</a> joined forces to design a fun and inspiring bedroom for kids called #thebearscave. Designed for Casa Foa 2018, Argentina&#8217;s most prestigious architecture and interior design trade show, the cave-like bedroom, named #thebearscave, removes all technology leaving behind a space for a child to have fun and to use their imagination.
Diagonal wood floors continue up the wall at a slant on one side with wooden panels covering the other wall and the bed structure on the other side. Inspired by nature, the room features a bear on top of a mountain with a bed nestled inside a cave. A ladder inside the “cave” leads up to the mountaintop where there’s another bed. A corner desk becomes a place to play toys with the bear overlooking from above. The rest of the bed structure, which is

Moroso’s London Showroom Unveiled an Exhibition of Furniture and Textiles by Bethan Laura Wood

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/morosos-london-showroom-unveiled-an-exhibition-of-furniture-and-textiles-by-bethan-laura-wood/bethan-laura-wood-moroso-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/10/Bethan-Laura-Wood-Moroso-1-810x540.jpg" alt="Moroso&#8217;s London Showroom Unveiled an Exhibition of Furniture and Textiles by Bethan Laura Wood" /></a>
                                During the <a href="https://design-milk.com/tag/London-Design-Festival/"  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">London Design Festival</a>, Italian brand <a href="http://moroso.it/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Moroso</a> presented at their Clerkenwell showroom new furniture and textiles by <a href="http://www.bethanlaurawood.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Bethan Laura Wood</a>. The <a href="http://moroso.it/london-design-festival-2018/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">exhibition</a>, entitled Mono Mania Mexico, was a dramatic display that filled the two-story showroom which was the perfect way for it to make its UK debut. The work brings Wood&#8217;s trips to Mexico to life through bold colors and expressive patterns, most inspired by the stained glass windows found in the new basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City. Her vision of that building, along with a nod to the embroidery from traditional Otomi textiles, led to the vibrant series that was unveiled.
The exhibition features new fabrics, furniture, and rugs (in collaboration with Golran) that were designed by Bethan Laura Wood for Moroso in partnership with Italian textile house, Limonta. Photos © Adam Dale.

                                Seemingly stuck in the 90s, this <a href="http://www.triaarquitetura.com.br/projetos/apartamento-salvador-cardoso"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">apartment</a> in São Paulo, Brazil was in need of a major makeover. Enter Brazilian architecture firm <a href="http://www.triaarquitetura.com.br/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Tria Arquitetura</a> (whose work we&#8217;ve <a href="https://design-milk.com/tag/Tria-Arquitetura/"  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">featured before</a>), who was asked to update the interior by way of replacing dated details, increasing natural light, and adding innovative technology throughout. A new staircase was installed using two different materials – white Dekton on the lower part and then open wood treads above the fourth step.
The apartment spans 260-square-meters and was given a new open layout, as well as a fresh color palette of neutrals to make it feel cozy while also keeping it bright. A vertical plant wall was installed just inside from the patio area where it receives plenty of natural light. The master bathroom was integrated into the closet for added convenience and greenery was incorporated to give it a more spa-like feel. An office was

                                Oliver Chambers, a former Dyson designer with cabinet making in his blood, and digital designer Greta Chambers formed London-based design studio <a href="https://www.herston-uk.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Herston</a> in 2017. Their inaugural design is a beautifully crafted desk lamp that will add a level of sophistication to any workstation.
The Herston Desk Lamp was designed to self-balance in order to provide smooth and effortless movement into any position. Comprising handcrafted wood and hidden conducting elements, the lamp features the latest LED technology that emits a high-quality, dimmable light. Its easy adjustability means it can be used as a task lamp when you’re working or as a more subtle ambient light in a darker room. The lamps are outfitted with triangular cast iron weights that allow the lamp to stay in you’re preferred position. A 360-degree rotational base houses hidden ball bearings so it rotates around smoothly. The Herston Desk Lamp is available in two versions –
