Most city dwellers live in modest size apartments which don’t have enough room for an independent dining room. For those of you looking to accommodate these two rooms in a constrained space, this post should serve some inspiration. These visuals by conceptual designer Orlando Toro show excellent examples of spaces that integrate living with dining.
Unique sweeping furniture designs, standout lighting installations and creative colour schemes come together to make this decidedly futuristic home interior, designed and visualised by Buro511. This scene isn’t set in some far flung advanced civilisation though, this is simply a modern apartment with a bit of starship inspired zing.
We have all come to know and love Scandinavian home style, with crisp gallery white walls and uncomplicated forward-thinking furniture. This home features both of those things, but throws us a curve ball by introducing subtle intricacies of Greek home design.
These simple interiors are a nice palate cleanser after a long day of looking for more complicated design ideas.

The story of this home design began back when the client had the idea of situating a swimming pool in his apartment, a 477 square metre duplex in São Paulo, Brazil. Fernanda Marques Arquitetos Associados embraced the challenge, and proposed that a glass pool be made a novel part of the living room by amalgamating it with huge windows there.
Set in the scenic beauty of Clifton, on Cape Town’s Atlantic Seaboard, this 789 square metre home occupies a position on the hill side. Higher situated residences climb to the right, and lower lying houses to the left, in a neighbourhood shaped by fortress-like boundary walls and building mass.
