I found a neat lamp that you can make with materials that you can easily find at home. The only materials that you need to make this lamp are: paper, glue, scissors, and a (old) lantern. To make the lamp you just need to cut strips from scrap paper and glue them on the shade. The result is “an incredibly stunning artichoke-like lamp that looks expensive but it truly cost you nothing.

As I was researching I found this blog post about a stunning house in New Delhi, India it has contemporary influences. “Different textures adorn the house and create a sense of serenity and peace. Earthy tones enhance warmth that emanate from the interiors of the house.” I just simply love how it brings nature into the space. I would have never thought of putting a pool on the top floor also like the lighting fixtures since they are modern but in the way they are put in a way that they don’t make the space feel cold and instead they bring everything together making the space feel peaceful.

Multi-purpose furniture

As I was looking around I found Clei a Italian company that specialize in researching and manufacturing furniture that let you squeeze out every inch of usable space at home. “Clei responds with highly specialized collections, composed by patented integrated transformable systems, as a solution to furnish while multiplying the value of the space.” Nearly all the furniture featured here has at least two functions built in. This multi-purpose furniture would come highly recommended for people struggling with floor space and those looking for ways to improvise.
