Recently it came to my attention that something and mundane as stairs can be really interesting and exciting. After browsing internet for a while and exploring interesting interior and staircase designs i decided to make a best of list for today’s article. Seems to me that designers experience a lot of problems when it comes to space. It is like they are unable to find out a good way to work with the space under  the stairs, so they are giving up on it and leaving it empty. Needles to say, some of the today’s entries surely find out a perfect way, yet some did opposite and took another direction… If you like the post be sure to share it and recommend to your friends… Hanging Stairs   Timber Stripe Staircase   Understairs Space   Staircase In Northampton   Tree Stairs   Sensualscaping Stairs   Tree Banister   Bookcase Staircase…

Silk scarves also make a truly original…

First, a caveat: Anyone expecting the home of supermodel Gisele Bündchen and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady to be a lavish pleasure dome replete with sultry sirens and gridiron gods cavorting around the pool is in for a serious letdown. Likewise, those who imagine a sprawling palace staffed with a battalion of liveried footmen proffering protein shakes on silver trays have also missed the mark. The reality of Bündchen and Brady’s life in Los Angeles’s Brentwood neighborhood is far more—dare we say it?—normal. “I like simplicity and coziness,” says the renowned Brazilian beauty. “I want to live in a place that feels like a real home, where you can put your feet up on the couch and just relax.” Brady seconds the notion: “Gisele and I have eight sisters between us, and there are lots of kids. We built this house as a sanctuary for our family—a place where…
