This project for an extremely creative loft conversion in an industrial property in the heart of Budapest was undertaken by its owner Shay Sabag.

A strong industrial element is evident through the exposed metal pipework and extractor tubing, a stripped back heating system against a background of raw concrete and unplastered brickwork. Distressed surfaces on which vintage and modern objects exist harmoniously contrast with an unexpected country island kitchen which adds a touch of homeliness. The warm rich hues of the wooden ceiling and the elegant chandeliers contribute a strong note of elegance to the equation.

Located in Arild, Sweden, this 1970′s villa hadn’t been used for over 30 years. When the designer Marie Olsson Nylander and her husband saw it they weren’t very sure they wanted it for themselves. It took them three visits to be able to make a decision.

After they purchased the placed, they immediately started to work. They had to make some changes in order to transform this place and to turn it into their home.First they needed to tear down the old parquet flooring and to replace it with a new one. Also they wanted to open up the ceiling. They further had to renovate the bathrooms and to knock out a wall in order to build a new porch. It wasn’t easy but they managed to create a whole new place that they can now call home.

As for the interior design, it’s obvious that the two are on the same page, they like the same things and what the both like is unusual and unique pieces. Instead of choosing modern, new pieces of furniture, they preferred to use old, worn out items that had their own story to tell. They used a circular worn iron staircase to connect the two floors and opted for dining room table from Egypt and a bench that was previously an old gymnastics terminal. Moreover, everything that you see in this house has a story and the owners can tell you all about it.

We ran across a lovely collection of eclectic interiors spiced up with vintage elements by designer Timothy Oulton and thought of sharing them further.Boasting sophistication and creativity, each of the 15 interiors below was developed according to a certain theme.

As you will look through the photos, you will also discover “a nostalgic tribute to the romantic era of luxurious sea voyages“, in various decorative objects. such as vintage trunks, classic upholstery pieces, and travel memorabilia.
