Minimalist Home Floor Recommendations

A minimalist house certainly needs a floor that matches the design concept, is contemporary, and makes the whole house comfortable. The floor of a minimalist house can’t just be chosen. Look for one that is easy to maintain, durable, and provides added value to the appearance of your home.

Until now, parquet wood flooring is still the number one favorite. The elegant character that is seen from each wooden surface gives more value to the room. Not only that, wood elements are much preferred because they are suitable for all design concepts. Starting from minimalist, classic, to even contemporary.

Minimalist House Floor Doff Ceramics

However, these phrases aren’t interchangeable and shouldn’t have the same meaning.

A good approach to make it possible for a particular area is worthwhile is to ask realtors within the area how business goes for them.

Kim Kardashian Is Officially Launching a Home Accessories Collection

If you’ve ever seen an episode of The Kardashians on Hulu, done a deep dive on Kim Kardashian’s Instagram, or if you’ve glimpsed AD‘s 2020 tour of her Axel Vervoodt–designed home, you know that the businesswoman and entertainment personality has a thing for monochrome, particularly of the greige variety. The neutral color has invaded much of Kardashian’s world, from the shared office of her brands Skims and Skkn by Kim to the products themselves, the most devout being her nine stone-toned Skkn by Kim products that feature no distracting informational labels or in-your-face branding.

Less than four months after the launch of the aforementioned skin-care products, Kardashian is set to release yet another collection perfect for her fellow greige disciples: bathroom accessories. The line includes five concrete products—a vanity tray, a round container, a canister, a tissue box, and a waste basket—that will fit right in alongside a collection

Kim Kardashian Wants to “Elevate” Your Home With New Line of Accessories

If you haven’t been keeping up, Kim Kardashian has announced a new lifestyle venture.

After building a beauty and fashion empire, The Kardashians star is ready to enter the home décor space, introducing a line of five bathroom accessories under the SKKN by Kim umbrella on Oct. 6. Each piece—which includes a vanity tray, a round container, a canister, a tissue box and a waste basket—were intentionally designed to coordinate with her other brands.

“I love concrete and gray tones, it feels really zen to me,” Kim told Architectural Digest in an interview published on Sept. 28. “When I was designing the packaging for my SKKN by Kim skin-care line, I wanted the packaging to look really good in my own home. All my inspiration was concrete sculpture and varying shades of stone.”

She continued, “For these new home accessories, I wanted to make sure they really complemented the

Tour a “Luxury Funhouse” in Laguna Beach, California

AD100 interior designer Michelle Nussbaumer’s more-is-more approach to decoration feels either inspired by the Pacific Ocean’s magnitude or like a brazen attempt to be the equal of the irrepressible view at this cliff-hugging vacation home in Laguna Beach. “This house is really something very different for the family,” says Nussbaumer, who has worked on the multigenerational family’s other properties for almost two decades. “[They] raised [their] kids in more traditional homes, and now that there are grandchildren around, it’s the era of the luxury fun house.”

Fashioning a funky and fearless tableau requires a vast imagination, a key characteristic of natural-born maximalist Nussbaumer. For instance, the designer spared nary an inch of surface area in the house from gutsy graphics, from the site-specific black-and-white wall art in the game room, stenciled with painter’s tape, to the painterly CC Tapis rug underfoot in the kitchen-adjacent keeping room. Also in that rounded
