One might think that decorating a small apartment is a quite simple activity. However, as it may be enjoyable, it can also be complex in terms of choosing materials.
Today we are visiting Dumi and the house he built in the Dristor area, a very interesting decoration project with elegant rustic style that conveys personality in an intimate ambience. This time, the main point of attraction is the decorative stone Fileti Sikis, used for cladding the remarkable fireplace in the living room.
We are visiting Mogoşoaia and the house of Gelu Mălureanu, representative for Avantgarde Concept, a company focused on constructions and decoration projects.
Your home is a personal retreat – a place where we can be ourselves and forget about everything. That’s why decorating such a space will not be as easy as it may seem. More difficult than choosing a living room sofa or your favorite bathroom material, there is something more that complicates our choices.
We have declared our fascination for natural stone anytime we had an opportunity and is exactly such passion that opened up fresh horizons and outlooks. Such a natural and simple material showed us once more that essential things are hidden in details – people and places.
Design has a way of influencing people's lives and daily behavior by revealing emotions and altering the mood. And designers are the ones responsible for our basic objects. They have a unique ability to see the world, a detail that eludes us and even perceive things that do not exist yet. As a result, you get things beyond our boundaries and imagination and if they really understand nature, you will enjoy genuine works of art.
The backsplash is a detail that creates a unique space. In your bathroom or kitchen, the backsplash creates a contrast between the countertop and the rest of your decoration project. Apart from the aesthetic feature, the backsplash also fulfills practical function, equally important: protecting the wall from dirt and protection against water. Although there are natural stone backsplash from tiles with different sizes, the mosaic backsplashes are extremely popular all over the world for the dynamic image and color variation transmitted into the space. Nowadays, with more available technology and the various sources for studying the installation procedures for backsplashes, you should attempt to do it if you have a passion for DIY projects.

We are visiting Cristina's home in Chiajna, a U-shaped cube-shaped house on a metal structure, having the living room, kitchen and bedroom with the direct access on terrace. How did she get to this type of structure? "We agreed with this option because it was recommended by our contractor, who clearly explained us the benefits. We never wanted a big home and we worked together on this project" says Cristina.
We are visiting Marian, owner of a redecorated flat in the Banu Manta neighborhood of Bucharest, who lives there with his wife and child. The bathroom is cladded with classic travertine - a warm beige color that conveys a very friendly atmosphere.
