Latest Interior Design Item- The Pineapple

Who would imagine that a tropical fruit – the pineapple- would become the latest interior design crush?

The pineapple has indeed a colorful history spanning from colonial times and is today heralded as the princess of fruits and credited as the symbol of hospitality and welcome. To give the pineapple as a gift conveys your intention to promote friendliness and graciousness to the recipient. Channel the sentiment by adorning your home with  this exotic-themed decor.

Add a pineapple to your room – a quick and quirky home update.

Dream House by Tecto Arhitectura

I absolutely fell in love with this amazing house designed by my friends from Tecto Arhitectura. They have used raw materials and energy for this house. It is very ‘green’ and it was built having sustainable energy in mind. I have the impression that the nature was brought inside the house with the designs that were made, and from the outside it looks as if the house was raised from the nature itself. The view from the windows is absolutely magnificent. I can easily imagine myself waking up to that view.

And. as a special bonus for Everydayfacts, Tecto will answer questions from my readers. So, if you have home design questions and/or your dream house to built in mind, be sure to drop your question as a comment to this post or use Twitter and @evrydayfacts to post your questions! Can’t wait to host this new section on my blog!

Amazing Furniture

I saw these chairs and I really loved them. Inspired from mythology the designer Merve Kahraman has created a series of chairs called Hybrid that have all the elements of an animal: horns, ears and even hooves. I will not be surprised if one day these chairs will move and start to run.
