The board is done by Portuguese designer GonA alo Campos as a decorative element where you can put your messages on without need for pens or erasers. Its surface is hold within a wooden frame and made of the very pleasant to touch fur. The message bord is quite unusual idea but it can become very popular because it looks much better than chalkboards and they are very popular.
When technology meets office design to create an eye catching workplace viewable from blocks away, we can't help but be tinkled pink at the thought. The events agency BA ro Hirzberger hired one of the best techie talents, Austrian design agency Strukt Design Studio to create a digitally enhanced wall that would capture the essence of their company by using video projectors and tons of creative precision. The Pac Man visuals are but an added bonus at the end of this video which basically demonstrates the manifestation of their genius design idea Enjoy the show!

Actually this also reminds us of the Apple Matrix Wall which Apple showed off at last year's WWDC. Everytime someone purchases an app, that app icon would pulsate.
This year around they made it more 'matrixy'.
The way technology is moving these days, you wouldn't rule out having one of these in your home pretty soon. Check out this video:

Here is another fresh idea to decorate an apartment of your dream. The renovation is done by Jones l Haydu because of a fire disaster the owner decided to completely change the traditional flat into cozy modern apartment. The interior is characterized by openness and look very bright because of enough sunlight that could pass through the glass windows. The living room looks trendy and modern with soft bright sofa and wooden furniture. The room arrangement allows the bedroom to be located near to the rear side for better privacy and surrounding views. Wood becomes the boldest element in the whole interior design. The dark wood band-cum-shelf adds coziness feeling to the house and please visit Jones l Haydu for more images.
Who says living in a 16 square meter home can't be comfortable?A This small, but well organized and friendly crib for two! is an extreme example of space maximization in the busy city of Seattle. Did you ever think that a 182 square foot living space could house a living room, a bedroom, hallway and bathroom? Naturally, for such a home to exist, building a "second floor" was necessary. Therefore, the space that in most homes is only used for bunk beds, in this scenario serves as an entertainment room "downstairs" and an unusual bedroom above. Even though this house is beyond small, it is not lacking storage space. We have to say we were surprised to see how well those two bikes fit in there. Owner Steve Sauer says that he had bought most of the furniture from Ikea and he is particularly pleased with the small kitchen table with storage space inside. All in all, Steve stated that his apartment is cozy and not at all cramped: a??What I really wanted was one place with exactly what I needed and wanted. Quality is more important than quantity for me, and extra space only a problema? . You either love this place or hate it, but whichever it is keep in mind to think out of the box and explore all the living possibilities your home has to offer.-via Tinyhouseblog
