Pantone, the world’s color matching authority and developer of the Pantone Matching System widely used by interior designers, painters and artists, has announced its choice for color of the year 2022. This time around, the honor goes to very perished, a gorgeous shade that marries blue with red-purple undertones to create a dynamic color that turns heads and demands attention. According to Pantone, Very Peri demonstrates “reckless confidence and bold curiosity.”

Full of attitude

Following two deeply difficult years, Very Peri is a refreshing and luminous pop of color. Admittedly, it is not suitable for covering the whole house – a little is enough – but it is the ideal shade to give a light tone.

To learn creative ways for readers to incorporate Very Peri into their home decor, we consulted with various designers. Try some of the design tips below to invigorate your home with this eye-catching color of the year.

Find an anchor pattern

Mark Cutler and Nichole Schulze, founders of CutlerSchulze, a design company based in Los Angeles, California, has some definite ideas for putting Very Peri to good use. They suggest starting with an “anchor pattern,” in fabric or wallpaper, that incorporates a bit of Very Peri. After establishing the grounding pattern, consider adding Very Peri more generally to the room in the form of “a few pillows or even wall treatments.” Cutler and Schulze also note that the color “would totally fit into a jewelry tone scheme”, especially in “a library or den”, where the level of color saturation would be appropriate.

Consider a south-facing bedroom

According to Lily Wili, founder and designer at Never Wallpaper, a wallpaper and wall mural retail store located in the UK. South-facing rooms are often flooded with sunlight, which can bring out bright colors. Wili also suggests pairing the color with “subtle grays and whites” or “muted tones.” To make the room cozy without feeling cluttered, “try adding self-printed pillowcases and throws to the bed or couch.”

Light up a basement

For those with an adventurous spirit, Kyle Richards, co-founder of Overland Park’s Best Painters, in Overland Park, Kansas, suggests painting a basement wall with Very Peri. “Just because it’s the lowest part of the house doesn’t mean it has to look like a gloomy cave,” says Richards. Very Peri’s blue base color brings a touch of warmth, and with its reddish undertone, it’s “sure to create a unique basement vibe,” he adds.

Accentuate a gray background

Christiaan Huynen, graphic designer, CEO and founder of an Irish-based design company DesignBro, suggests pairing accents of Very Peri with shades of gray for a “sophisticated and modern look without being overwhelming.” He reminds readers that the color will only be “in” for a year, so it’s best used as an accent rather than a prominent focal point like a wall. Huynen says to think of Very Peri as a touch of “eye candy for your home.”

keep it sweet

Designer Andrea Schumacher from Interiors by Andrea Schumacher, which has offices in Denver, Colorado, and Santa Barbara, Calif., is proposing to incorporate Very Peri into upholstery instead of using the vivid hue on walls. These soft accents could include “drapery fabric, a punchy sofa, bedding, or even a rug.” Schumacher also notes that pairing Very Peri with other blue tones could “create a dreamy atmosphere perfect for a bedroom or powder room.”

6 Office Spring Cleaning Ideas That Work https://myrumah.net/6-office-spring-cleaning-ideas-that-work/ Sun, 16 Jan 2022 14:40:07 +0000 https://myrumah.net/6-office-spring-cleaning-ideas-that-work/ Posted on Sunday, January 16, 2022 at 9:39 a.m. Join AFP’s more than 100,000 followers on Facebook Buy an AFP subscription Subscribe to AFP podcasts on itunes and Spotify News, press releases, letters to the editor: augustafreepress2@gmail.com Advertising inquiries: freepress@ntelos.net (© Andrei Popov – stock.adobe.com) It’s that time of year again when you’re still in […]]]>

It’s that time of year again when you’re still in vacation mode, but your paperwork is piling up higher than the Eiffel Tower. When the grass gets greener and you can’t get through a meeting without a colleague sneezing because of their allergies, you know spring is here!

Spring means spring cleaning – and you often schedule a thorough deep cleaning at home, but what about your office? The office is where we spend a large part of our day and we share the office with our colleagues; some of which are less organized than others.

As with any space, your office tends to get dusty and dirty, with all the germs people follow when they enter the workplace. Cleaning up the office helps eliminate allergens, especially when spring arrives.

1. Divide the work into days

If you have a large office space, it’s understandable that you can’t complete the entire cleaning to-do list in one afternoon. Trying to do everything at once is not feasible, as your team has their own work to do and some office items that need to be washed take time to dry.

Divide the work into several days. It would be best to do cleaning tasks on consecutive days, but if your schedule doesn’t allow you to do things consecutively, having a weekly or bi-weekly schedule works just fine. Start with the easier areas of the desk and work your way up to the tougher tasks. Your desktop will be cleaned up in no time!

2. Delegate tasks based on strengths

Do you have a cooking enthusiast or coffee connoisseur in the office? Ask them to clean the equipment in the office pantry, as they would be in the best position to clean it properly. The organization pro on your team can get everyone on the same page by using a unified organization system for your files and documents.

Work with your team and have everyone work on their strengths. By delegating tasks this way, you clean up the office more efficiently and quickly than if you tackle one task at a time. You can build team spirit and learn more about your colleagues.

3. Get an office cleaning service for deep cleaning

No matter how hard you scrub these stains, you may not be able to remove them all without the proper tools used to deep clean fabrics and surfaces. For a complete and thorough cleaning, hire an office cleaning service from a reputable cleaning company. Most companies have packages in place that you can use for a cheaper price and more thorough cleaning.

It can be difficult to find the best office cleaning service around your area, but you can always check previous customer reviews as well as company reputation. Alternatively, you can partner with a company that suits your office and meets your office cleaning budget.

4. Incorporate storage boxes for files and supplies

Spring cleaning is the time for you to introduce a new filing method, since you’re organizing your files and documents anyway. Storage boxes for supplies work great for maintaining organization in the office and are simple to use when labeled correctly.

Those old files that you need to store in records can be separated, compiled and stored in different storage boxes labeled with their credentials. You’ll find what you need quickly and easily, even for files that were stored years and months ago.

5. Get rid of spam and digital clutter

Physical clutter isn’t the only horror in the office. Messy digital files and cluttered emails can prevent you from immediately removing the files you need. Mislabeled digital files are even harder to tell apart at first glance because the icon is often set as a standard for all the same file types.

Take the time to manually clean up your digital clutter. Start by deleting spam and unnecessary emails to save data space. Check and label your digital files with appropriate names that can immediately tell you what information is stored in the file. Organize these files using number folders and name these folders accordingly.

6. Clean the refrigerator beforehand

The office refrigerator tends to pick up odors from the food in it. Spilled food and drink contribute to the grime coating the inside of the office refrigerator, so you know it’s time to clean it.

Clean the refrigerator before you start cleaning the interior so that you are not bothered by obstructions in the refrigerator. Unplug the refrigerator from the office to defrost the freezer and remove any food stored inside. Take out the individual grids and wash them separately. Wipe the inside of the refrigerator with a clean, damp cloth to remove any residue.

Conner Wishard got a sense of the wild design challenges that awaited him with his very first project for Lundberg Design, in 2013.

Task? Create a wall of honey. Sure no problem.

“We encapsulated hundreds of gallons of different types of honey from different farms and sucked the air out of them and put them in these big plexiglass bricks and backlit them and used them to build a whole interior wall,” said the El Molino graduate, a bit breathless as he remembered just one mission that a more conventional mind would dismiss as deranged.

“Honey is not bad. It always changes. So you have these crystallized patterns that grow and shift over the years,” he said. “It was like my first week. I was hooked.

As Director of Manufacturing for one of the Bay Area’s most innovative architectural firms, Wishard aims to turn ideas into three-dimensional design elements and reimagine found objects and eerie memories into something a la both cool and useful.

Swedish-American modernist architect Olle Lundberg, who founded the San Francisco-based firm, loves composition and problem-solving that goes into architecture. He is always looking for “new ways to express form”, he said. This includes using new materials and techniques and reusing intriguing old objects.

For clients, this often results in a “signature piece”, a feature of each project that is completely unexpected and unique.

These unique pieces often take the form of architectural sculptures, as Lundberg puts it, objects that are given new life with new use, appealing both because of their history and “the patina of age.”

Iconic pieces in many forms

As part of the three-person team in Lundberg Design’s in-house fabrication shop, Wishard, who studied engineering and drafting at Santa Rosa Junior College and industrial design at the Academy of Art University, turns these sometimes crazy ideas into a beautiful reality.

Take the honey walls. The way honey changes color and shape over the years makes the walls constantly changing. A few of the panels are incorporated into the design of Blue Stem Brasserie in San Francisco, where they adorn a section showcasing local artisan food products.

“In a way, Olle and the team view them as a gift, not necessarily monetary, but a very personal, one-of-a-kind item that can be anything from a doorknob to a staircase that is being eaten away from the street,” said firm architect Emily Pony. “The world is our oyster when it comes to thinking about what we can create for our clients.”

The architects are located in a design studio above the vast workshop, and ideas flow freely between the boutique and the studio. Everything is housed in an almost century-old building that was once a mattress factory. With its raw concrete walls and exposed wooden trusses, the studio is truly an exciting play space for someone like Wishard, who was set on the path to his unusual vocation by his high school art teacher, Hal Roa.

“He was a character,” said Wishard, who lives on a sailboat in Richmond and plans to eventually build himself a cabin in Marshall.

“Above all, he taught us how to think, how things are done and how to document them. He taught the class like a professional. It was a great process. We had to design a house when we were in second grade.

A Lundberg Design signature piece can be a solution to a design problem.

But Lundberg, who once bought and lived on an old Icelandic car ferry, is constantly dredging up old items that may end up in projects as iconic pieces. While renovating a dilapidated fisherman’s cabin in Bodega Bay into a seaside retreat, Lundberg spotted a pair of abandoned buoys stuck in the mud. He did not see any marine debris. He saw the potential.

“They were immersed in mud,” Wishard said. “We had to hook them up to an old car and a group of four-by-fours and get them out of the mud.”

The buoys were in fairly poor condition; pieces had eroded away. Most people, said Lundberg architect Emily Pearl, would consider the second, most damaged, a lost cause. But the fabrication shop found a way to counterbalance that and turned the bowl-shaped object into a pendant light. The least damaged they made in a hearth.

“Olle will come back from a weekend with something on the truck, a big table from Indonesia or a canoe from eBay,” Pearl said. “And he’ll be like, ‘That’s a good thing. We should put it in a project for a client. And we’ll talk to the client and inevitably he’ll make his way.

Buoys are so popular as design elements that Wishard often searches via satellite imagery to spot old ones in a shipyard that may be disused.

Every car starts out in the prototype or concept car stage, and a good concept can make or break the future of a nameplate. Some concepts are lucky enough to make it to production, while others like the 2003 Ford 427 never see the light of day after a few car shows, despite the hype or popularity the car might have had.

Cadillac is considering entering the electric vehicle (EV) market and plans to do so with the Celestiq as its flagship vehicle. Designs so far feature all-wheel drive, four-wheel steering and clear glass roof panels.

Although the design is very sleek, the car will face an uphill battle if it joins the EV market in 2025, as is Cadillac’s goal. This electric vehicle is on track to have a range of 300 miles, which is fair for an electric vehicle, but most Teslas, which are already in production, can achieve this. Plus, the Teslas are much more affordable than the Celestiq should be, with reviewers reckoning it will have a six-figure price tag.

Yes this sony, the company that makes TVs, cameras and speakers plans to enter the market with a compact SUV. Want to compete with EVs? And cars like Ford Venuza, Sony Vision-S 02 are one of the most interesting concept cars so far.


via TechSpot

Revealed at CES, this SUV is a twist on an earlier concept the company revealed in 2020, but the design is a bit more fleshed out than before. Roughly the same size as a Tesla Model Y, the car so far has 20-inch wheels, an all-digital infotainment system and a gear display that spans the entire dashboard, and is set for seven places. Information is still available on the engine block and powertrain planned for the car.

The car also features a fully digitized dashboard and infotainment system, and most importantly, it will be Cadillac’s attempt at a self-driving car. The concept as it is has no steering wheel or pedals. The safety and practicality of self-driving cars remains a challenge for manufacturers, so it’s a good thing this is only a concept car.

Mercedes calls the interior a vision of “progressive luxury” values. From the outside, only the driver’s cockpit can be seen, suggesting the car is meant for one, but lifting the doors attached to the car’s roof reveals a surprisingly spacious interior. The polished aluminum of the car’s interior trim also adds to its sleek and futuristic appeal. Mercedes also plans for it to be a zero-emission vehicle.

When an environmentally conscious couple and their two young children moved from New York to a century-old house in West Hartford, CT, they wanted to preserve as many of its original features as possible. The house is historically protected, but the family needed the property to work for them as a comfortable and practical living space. They wanted to update the interiors to fit their modern family lifestyle while retaining its historic charm. They brought in an interior designer to help them get the right look.

The resulting redesigned home offers exactly the balance the family was looking for. An elegant combination of new and original features, along with recycled and reused elements, preserves the character of the original building and makes it one of the best homes in the world.

When it comes to designing smaller living spaces, there are a myriad of ways to maximize the limited space available. One could use multifunctional “transformative” furniture, or one could make the staircases retractable, or perhaps hide a carousel cupboard under your bed. Essentially, whether it is a micro-apartment, a small house, or a vehicle converted to a small house on wheels, there are many small space design ideas that can be translated and adapted to meet a need. wide variety of challenges.

In the South Bohemian region of the Czech Republic, boq architekti (previously) successfully translated some of these useful small space design ideas into building a compact yet comfortably efficient waterside retreat for a family. This region is well known for tourism and this House by the pond (or “Dům u rybníka”) is not only designed to maximize its small footprint, but to enhance the idyllic views over the water.

Tomas dittrich


As the architects explain:

“On the edge of a small South Bohemian village, in an area interspersed with famous South Bohemian ponds, a mini-house has developed, serving as a refuge from the bustle of the city. [..] The glass facade is a key element of the whole house. The living space is elevated and thanks to the generous glazing the owners can enjoy a magnificent view of the countryside close to the water. ”

The cottage’s simple, gabled form is inspired by what designers identify as the locality’s “classic rural archetype”. Yet it also sports a clean and minimalist look, thanks to its white plaster exterior walls, which contrast sharply with its dark gray galvanized sheet roof.

The addition of a long rectangular-shaped volume, which contains the bathroom and the sauna, helps to add additional space, as well as a certain dynamism to the external form.

Tomas dittrich


Entering through a door in the side of the rectangular volume, one enters the entrance hall, where one can hang coats and store shoes.

Tomas dittrich


This leads to another door which opens onto the main living areas of the kitchen and living room, which are oriented towards this huge glazed facade overlooking the pond.

Tomas dittrich


The living room is not too big, but beautifully bright, thanks to the glass patio door and generous windows, all guiding the gaze to a peaceful view of the pond.

Much of the interior is done in a way that echoes the minimalist envelope while enhancing natural light and giving the illusion of a larger space, explain the architects:

“Inside, the supporting elements come into play. The steel I-beams are recognized and are complemented by a subtle steel staircase with wooden steps and other steel furniture. The whole thing is completed by wooden elements and accessories of neutral color. The main interior The motif is the exterior landscape, which literally changes every minute and thus creates a unique atmosphere. ”

The stairs are designed in a way that helps to emphasize the intention of the design towards lightness and airiness. Rather than being made of heavy, thick woods, the stair frame is made of light steel, while the stair treads themselves are made of thin pieces of wood.

The result is a slimmer profile for the stairs that still lets in natural light and the unobstructed view. With the addition of handrails on both sides, the shape of the staircase is slightly steeper than usual, allowing the stairs to take up less floor space, much like in the shipbuilding industry.

Behind the stairs, the dining room and the kitchen are located at the other end of the ground floor. The kitchen is laid out along one wall, while a large row of white paneled cabinets borders the other wall.

Unlike the neutral palette of the walls, we have a darker slate colored material for the cabinets and fixtures with a sleek black finish, which helps add depth to the space.

Upstairs, we have a mezzanine where the sleeping area is located. There is an opening window in one of the sloped roof walls that allows light to enter.

There is also an office here on the mezzanine which overlooks the living room below.

Back on the ground floor, from the kitchen side, we enter the rectangular volume which includes both the bathroom on one side and the sauna, which overlooks the pool, on the other.

The use of darker materials in the bathroom creates a cave-like atmosphere, which is balanced by shiny touches of metal and an explosion of warm-toned recessed lighting in the shower alcove.

By strategically opening the house to nature on one end and arranging the interior in a way that maximizes light and space, this little pond-side house ends up being quite cozy and feeling big enough. To see more, visit boq architekti.

The world will never know. I think our fan base is so strong, and we don’t want them going after someone we’re trying to help. So who it was will forever be my secret.

is there strange eye makeover that stands out in your mind?

Well we’ve done almost 70 episodes now … But I really liked Neil from season 1, he had a great townhouse in Atlanta. Or AJ’s loft, also from Season 1. It really suited my personal aesthetic. And then of course Queer Eye in Japan, where I made the really cool pink bedroom for Kae Tanaka.

What can you tell us about the new season of Queer Eye? They had to stop shooting because of the Covid-19.

We shot it in Austin and started in early 2020 before closing. We haven’t even finished shooting an episode. We thought we would take a two week break and then we would continue. Then it took almost two years. strange eye is about real connections, there is a lot of embrace. So it took us a while before we could safely start filming again. The new season is going to be very emotional – I think this could be our best strange eye season again.

4 quick questions for Bobby Berk

City life or country life? Formerly a town, now a countryside.

New York or Los Angeles? After 14 years in New York, LA.

Airbnb or hotel? More and more often Airbnb.

At the restaurant or at home? Since we have a cook: at home.
