Space hunter

Okay, it is no secret that I am in love with Scandinavian designers Alvhem.  Their designs that smartly maximizes space with an artsy flair never fail to tickle my fancy.  With so many changes coming in so fast (not that I’m complaining), I’ve been pretty much apartment hunting.

Or at least apartment style hunting.

Now, my default source is Freshome.  But lately, Goods Home Design has become quite an inspiration too.

I found this floor plan on Pinterest and it is quite functional don’t you think?

But all in all, Freshome will always be my Alvhem source.

What interested me in Goods Home Design was when they featured 3D floor plans by artists Dmitriy Schuka and Shako Gurgenidze.  Schuka puts more emphasis on recreation.  If I were to pursue yoga and him jiu jitsu more seriously, this design quite accommodating.

I don’t really need a space to dry out skis, but a good place to disinfect gis and yoga mats are quite handy.

Personally though, I’m more of a Shako Gurgenidze fan.  The way he incorporated the great outdoors (or whatever would amount to an urban greenery) is much more compatible with how I envision our future to be.

Adorable right?

I am yet to find the architect and designer of this final floor plan I’m showing you, but this has to be the most appropriate for us both.  The small room can either be a cool down room or an office for me and the dining spaces are perfect for small group hosting.

Oh wow.  I just have apartments and housing in my head.  Haha.  The future holds a lot of promise, but if ever you decide to use any of these floor plans and designs for your remodeling, please do keep me posted.

Ah, tis but a dream

There are things that I will not stop loving…. FRIENDS is one of them.

I have consistently professed my love for this show, mainly because no matter how low or down or pathetic I was feeling, one episode of FRIENDS can easily turn that frown upside down. Smart writing accompanied by memorable characters, FRIENDS for me is still the best comedy television show ever. EVERRRR.

And I was right to love Freshome too! Not only did it give me my favorite bathtub and the chicest small apartment, it also featured the apartment layout of my favorite show.

The dream? To live in the comfort of Monica and Rachel’s apartment. Come on. You have to admit that’s pretty good living!

Joey and Chandler’s isn’t so bad too.
