KITCHEN MAKOVER 2

The look of my summer house kitchen has bothered me for years. Year after year the look of this kitchen became more boring and depressing, but this year I just could not look at those kitchen cabinets anymore. Instead of choosing the expensive route of replacing the kitchen, I decided to paint the cabinets and see how it turns out. I had successfully painted some pieces of furniture and I knew I could paint those cabinets too.

Pamja e kuzhines sime verore me ka penguar per shume vite. Vit pas viti pamja e saje behej edhe me e merzitshme dhe depresive, por kete vite une arijta ne piken ku nuk mund t’a duroja fare dukjen e saje. Ne vend se te beja ndrimin komplet te dollapave te kuzhines dhe te beja shpenzime te medha, une vendosa qe t’i ngjyrosi ato dhe te shof se si do te duket kuzhina pas nje intervenimi te tille. Edhe me pare kam ngjyrosur mobilje te ndryshme dhe e dija se do ti ngjyrosja mire edhe keta dollapa.

It took me more than a week to complete the project but I was supper happy with the new look of my kitchen. I was not happy though with the quality of the finish I got, but for that I have to blame the not so quality paint that I was using.

Me eshte dashur me teper se nje jave qe t’a perfundoi kete projekt por ne fund u ndava shume e kenaqur me dukjen e re te kuzhines sime. Nuk isha edhe aq e kenaqur me rezultatin e finishit te ngjyres se aplikuar por per kete fajin me duhet t’ja le kualitetit te ngjyres te cilen e kam perdore.

If I had used paint sprayer, it would likely have given me a very smooth finish, but I did not have one, so I used a brush for priming and a regular foam roller for painting and this technique left me with some noticeable brush marks on the upper cabinets. For the lower cabinets I used a roller for both priming and painting, and the result is much better.

Poqese e kisha perdore aparatin sprej per applikim te ngjyres mesiguri se do te arija nje finish shume me te lemuar, por nuk e pata nje aparat te tille, andaje perdora furq per aplikimin e dores se pare dhe roller shpuze per aplikimin e ngjyres me baze ujore. Si pasoje e perdorimit te brushes, tani dollapet e siperme kane shenja te dukshme te brushes gje qe nuk duket edhe aq hijshem. Ne dollapet e poshtme kam perdor rollerin e shpuzes ne te dy applikimet dhe rezultati eshte shume me i mire, andaje rekomandoj qe nese e ndonjehere vendosni qe ti lyeni dollapat e kuzhines e beni ate vetem me roller shpuze.

The backsplash tiles in this kitchen were another bothersome feature so I used moisture resistant wallpaper (for kitchens and baths) and completely covered the tiles. The result is amazing. The white wallpaper with some coffee themed writing on it has given this kitchen a whole new look which is also fun and welcoming. Using a moisture resistant wallpaper as a backsplash is a good solution when you want a quick fix or a new kitchen look. Especially is good for renters as it can be easily removed when moving out.

Dukja e pllakave te kuzhines gjithashtu ka qene nje element shtese qe me ka penguar vizuelisht andaje edhe vendosa qe te intervenoj edhe aty, gjithnje duke u perkujdesur qe t’i mbaje shpenzimet ne minimum. Siper pllakave vendosa tapet qe eshte rezistuese ndaje lageshtise dhe aplikohet ne muret e banjove dhe kuzhinave, dhe eshte nje zgjidhje e mire kur deshironi nje permirsim te shpejte vizuel ne kuzhinen t’uaj dhe posaqerisht eshte i mire per ata qe jane qiragjinje sepse hiqet shpejte dhe lehte kur e leshoni banesen.

To achieve a complete new look I also replaced some of the hardware on the lower cabinets and added a seagrass rug on the floor, and I am over the moon satisfied with the way it turned out.

Qe t’a kompletoja pamjen, ndryshova gjithashtu edhe dorezat e dollapeve te poshtme si dhe shtrova nje tepih nga bari i detit dhe jame me se e kenqaur me pamjen e arijtur.

Now I let you look at more pictures which, in the absence of my lovely camera, I had to take them with my I phone.

Tani do te ju le qe te shiqoni fotot te cilat, ne mungese te foto kameres, jane mare me I phone.

Easy Sofa and Chair Makeover

IMG_2675Mbeshjellse te Sofes dhe Foteleve

It has been more than twelve years that I purchased these two sofas and two chairs which, believe it or not, at that time were sold as a single set. Even then I did not like their look, their shape nor their colour, but it was the price that I could not resist.

Kaluan me se dymbedhjet vite prej se e kisha blere kete komplet mobiljesh i cili perbehej nga dy sofa dhe dy fotele. Qe atehere nuk me pelqente dukja e as forma dhe ngjyra e tyre por ishte cmimi me te cilin ofroheshin ai qe nuk munda t’i rezistoja.

IMG_2626
However, despite their boring look the set proved to be very functional as the chairs turn to a single bed and the sofas to a double size bed, creating extra sleeping space for those extra guests at my summerhouse.

Megjithate, perkunder dukjes se tyre te merzitshme ky komplet mobiljesh deshmoj te jet shume funkcional pasi qe qe te dy fotelet shendrohen ne shtreter individual per fjetje, ndersa sofat shtrihen dhe kriojne shtreter per dy persona per te krijuar keshtu vende shtese te fjetjes per mysafiret qe vizitojne shtepin tone verore.

I purchased these thinking that I will, in no time, give them a quick makeover and make them more appealing. Well, more than twelve years have passed and I did not even try doing something to them; however, lately I just could not stand their boring look any longer so I rolled up my sleeves and within a day I made my sofas and chairs look fresh, summery, updated so I could use them for few more years and benefit from their functionality.

Atehere kur e bleva kete komplet mendoja se shume shpejte do te ju beja dicka per t’ja u ndryshuar pamjen e tyre te merzitshme, por kaluan me se dymbedhjet vite e une as qe u perpoqa te je beja ngdonje gje; megjithate, kete vit une nuk munda me t’a duroja dukjen e tyre te merzitshme, keshtu qe i pervjela menget dhe brenda dites e bera qe ky komplet te duket veror, i fresket, i perditesuar keshtu qe mund ti perdori edhe disa vite dhe te perfitoj nga funkcionaliteti i tyre.

To achieve this look I first got rid of the “railing” detail at the armrests. I took away those wood pieces using a hand saw and next I painted the wood detail with a dark brown tinted polyurethane. Before painting I gave the pieces a light sanding so the paint would stick better.

Per t’a arijtur kete dukje, me nje share te thjeshte dore, i hoqa keto copa derasash te vendosura ne dorezat e mobiljeve dhe pastaj i ngjyrosa te gjitha pjeset e drurit me ngjyre kafe te mbyllet. Para ngjyrosjes bera pregaditjen e siperfaqes se drurit duke kaluar neper te me leter grithese te dendesise se imet keshtu qe ngjyra te ngjitej me mire.

IMG_2620

IMG_2619
The set looked already better with new wood colour and without that “railing” detail at the armrests. However, it was the fabric colour that had bothered me for years, so instead of going the long and expensive route of reupholstering them I chose the short and cheep route by slipcovering them.

Kompleti dukej shume me mire pas heqjes se derasave anesore si dhe aplikimit te ngjyres se mbyllet. Megjithate, ishte nghyra e shtofit te mobiljeve qe me pengonte shume me vite, keshtu qe ne vend qe te beja ndrimin e shtofit qe do te ishte shume e kushtueshme, une perzgjodha metoden e qepjes se mbeshtjellseve e cila eshte rruge me e thjeshte dhe me e lire.

I was lucky to find an extremely stretchy fabric in white, and black and white stripes so I could make deep pocket sheets at the size of the couch and chairs. Next I covered each piece of furniture with these bed like sheets and secured their ends under the furniture legs.

Isha shume me fate qe te gjeje material shume elastik te ngjyres se bardhe dhe me vija bardh e zi keshtu qe e bera cepjen e mbeshjellseve per te gjitha pjeset. Qepja e tyre eshte shume e thjesht pasi qe ato jane te qepura sikurse qarqafet e fjetjes dhe te rethuara me lastik dhe te cilat pastaj i mvishen mobiljeve dhe skajet vendosen perfundi kembeve te mobiljeve.

IMG_2650-2
I jazzed them up with some fun colour pillow cases found around the house, thus creating a completely new look for my living room.
IMG_2649IMG_2673IMG_2649IMG_2673IMG_2660IMG_2644IMG_2675
Ne fund mobiljet i dekorova me disa kellefe te jastekve me ngjyrera te cilat i kisha ne shtepi, dhe keshtu e krijova nje dukje krejtesishte te re te dhomes se dites.

The set turned from bo-bo-boooooring to fun, crisp, summery and modern and I am loooooving it.

Ky komplet mobiljesh, nga dukja e meparshme shume depresive dhe e merzitshme. u transformua ne nje komplet i cili ka dukje verore e moderne dhe i cili tani me pelqen shuuume.

Nese keni ndonji komplet te tille te merzitshem i cili ka nevoje per ndonje transformim, me shkruani ne besagmblog@gmail.com qe te ju tregoj se si mund ta transformoni ate qe t’a pelqeni ate perseri.

Decorating with Pillows

13 (2)
Dekorimi me Jastek

Without a doubt pillows are one of the most important accessories widely used in interior decor; because, not only they offer comfort but they also create visual interest of the space decorated with them.

Jasteket dekorues jane padyshim nje nder aksesoret me te rendesishme ne dekorin e cdo ambienti, sepse perveq qe ofrojne komoditet ato krijojne interesim vizuel te hapsires te cilen e dekorojme me ta.

Despite creating comfort and adding visual interest to the space, pillows can instantly change the look of a room or any space and at the same time using them we can create a style to any space.

Perveq qe krijojne interesim vizuel, me jastek ne menyre instante mund t’a nryshojme pamjen e dhomes dhe njekohesishte t’i krijojme nje stil dhomes ose kendit ku i vendosim.

Even the simplest sofa or any other furniture can appear much prettier if we decorate it well using pillows.

Edhe mobiljet me te thjeshta do te duken shume te bukura dhe interesante poqese i dekorojme mire me jastek.

Three different looks of the same sofa
Tre pamje te ndryshme te te njejtes sofe

Using some of the pillows which I have designed for this summer collection I will try to demonstrate how you can change the looks of a very simple sofa using different pillows.
Me disa jastek qe i kam dizajnuar per kolekcionin veror do te perpiqem te ju demonstroj se si do te japim pamje te ndryshme nje kendi vogel duke perdorur jastek te ndryshem.

The first look is created using two white pillows 60×60 cm by placing them side be side with a very small gap in between, and for texture and some colour I placed a red cashmere throw at the side of the sofa.

Pamja e pare eshte krijuar duke i perdorur dy jastek te bardhe te madhesise 60 x60 cm te cilet i kemi vendosur njerin afer tjetrit ne menyre paralele dhe, per shtresim dhe pake ngjyre, perskaj tyre e kemi vendose nje batanije te holle qe ti japim teksture dhe shtresim.

These two white pillows and the red throw on a black sofa have created a very simple yet elegant look with a plenty of class.

Edhepse vetem me dy jastek te thjeshte the me kete batanije te kuqe per kontrast, e krijuam nji pamje sa te thjeshte, po aq edhe elegante dhe me shume klas.

2. By using the same white pillows as a base, I have placed two navy pillows sewn with some rope details, and for layering and adding some visual interest I added a turuqoise throw.

2. Duke i perdorur si baze po te njetit jastek te bardhe i vendosim dy jastek ngjyre te kaltert mbyllet te dekoruar me litar, dhe gjitashtu per shtresim dhe per nji interesim me te shtuar vizuel e inkorporojme nje batanije te holle pambuku me ngjyre turkuaz.

Adding these navy/rope pillows I have created a costal lool that evokes memoires of seaside, vacation and relaxation.

Me keta dy jastek blu te punuar me litar e kemi kriju nji pamje costale qe te perkujton bregdetin, pushimin dhe relaxin.

3. To inject a punch of colour to the space to the space that is being decorated , we used these multicoloured pattern pillows. Also, a small rectangular geometrical pattern pillow was placed at one side of the sofa followed by a red throw. This way we created a very inviting and lively ambiance.

3. Per t’i injektuar pake ngjyrna kesaje hapsire qe po e dekorojme, i perdorim keta jastek me ket dezen shumengjyresh. Gjithashtu prane e vendosem edhe nje jastek te vogel me dizajn gjeometrik dhe, me gjithe keta jastek se bashku, e krijouam nje abmient te gjalle dhe shume mikeprites.

This is how we transformed this space and this small sofa and crated different looks and themes by only using different pillows; therefore, if you want to refresh and update the look of your space or furniture start with the pillows because it is the fastest way to achieve an instant change.

Pra ja se si e transformuam kete kende dhe kete sofe te thjesht dhe i dham disa pamje vetem me ndrimin e jastekve; andaje, poqese doni qe ta freskoni dhe perditesoni pamjen e dhomes apo cfardo ambienti tjeter filloni me jastek sepse eshte menyra me e shpejt per nje ndrim instant.

While arranging pillows always start placing them from the side of the sofa and proceed with placing other pillows towards the center.

Start with the placement of the largest pillow and continue with the placement of the smaller ones toward the center.

Kur beni aranzhimin e jastekve gjithmon filloni me vendosjen e tyre nga skaji i sofes dhe vazhdoni pastaje me vendosjen e tjerve ne drejtim te mesit.

Filloni me jastekun me te madhe dhe vazdhoni shtesimin e atyre te madhesive me te vogla kah mesi i sofes.

Even though pillows are found in almost every home furnishing stores, if you have some sewing skills, you can make your own pillows easily, however if you want to have unique pillows you can turn to the specialized home furnishing workrooms to order your desired pillows designed especially fro you.

Edhe pse tani ata ofrohen gati ne cdo shitore dhe me cmime shume te volitshme ju ata mundeni qe ti qepni edhe vet shum lehte; e nese deshironi qe te keni jastek unik te personalizuar atehere ju mund te ju drejtoheni sherbimeve profesionale qe ofrojne dizajnimin dhe qepjen e jastekeve siq eshte BESA GM Interior Design Studio qe gjendet ne Prishtine, Bregu I Diellit, Kompleksi FAMIS.

Cool Terrace Re-Design

17 1 lle
Ridizajnim i Terraces Verore
I was recently given the opportunity to re-design and style the terrace of one of the most frequented cafes in Peja city, Kosova, which reopened last night after a couple of weeks of recess during the renovation.

Projekti im i radhes ishte ridizajnimi dhe stilimi i nje terrace verore te nje prej lokaleve me te frekuentuara ne Peje i cili, pas nji pushimi te shkurter, u rihap kete te shtune.

Yesterday I took some picks and I am happy to share them with you. I gave this place a total makeover. I created a new, fresh, clean and modern look and now the place completely reflects a new style and atmosphere.

Para se te rihapej per mysafiret, shfrytezova rastin qe ti beje disa foto te cilat me kenaqesi po i ndaje me ju. Terracen verore te ketije lokali e ridizajnova ne teresi dhe i krijova nje stile te ri, te fresket e modern, dhe tani ajo frymon ne nje atmosfere krejtesisht tjeter.

There are plenty of lounging areas to enjoy morning coffees surrounded with lush greenery and beautiful city park view, and plenty of seating for evening happy hours which are ongoing events in this cafe.

E ridizajuar dhe me stil te ri, kjo terrace verore tani ka vende me ulese te rehatshme dhe me pamje te gjelberimit te bujshem nga parku u qytetit, ku munde te shijohen kafet e para te mengjezit, dhe shume ulese tjera te pafund per mbremjet gazmore te cilat jane evente te rregullta te ketije lokali.

When planing for re-design concept, I wanted to introduce to this place a mix of cool and summery colours and to create comfortable seating areas and to make this place serve as a destination for relax and enjoyment of spare time.

Gjate planifikimit te konceptit te ri per kete terrace, intenca ishte qe t’i fusja ne perdorim nje perzierje te ngjyrnave qe reflektojne pasterti dhe sjellin atmosfere verore, si dhe te krijoj pjese me ulese te rehatshme qe do ta benin kete terrace nje destinacion per relaks dhe kenaqesi.

This project was offered and executed partly in person and partly online, and it worked out perfectly well.

Ky projekt u realizua pjeserisht “on-line” dhe pjeserisht drejteperdrejte dhe funkcionoi shume mire.

Enjoy the pics and do not hesitate to write to besagmblog@gmail.com if you have a design dilemma. I may help you make your place be admirable by you and others.

Kenaquni me pamjet nga fotot dhe mos hezitoni te me kontaktoni ne besagmblog@gmail.com per dizajnimin ose redizajnimin e juj te radhes. Une do te perpiqem te ju ndihmoj qe ta beni hapsiren e juaj te admiruar nga ju vet dhe te gjithe tjeret.

Silk Drape

IMG_9123
Perde Mendafshi

After two weeks of long wait my Dupioni Silk for my display drape finally arrived, and within two days I managed to sew the drape and paint the display wall. These last few days were long working days and I feel that I am exhausted, but on the other hand I am overly happy with what I saw at the end.

Pas dy jave pritjeje, me ne fund mendafshi Dupion per perden e mendafshte arijti, the brenda dy diteve arijta qe ta beje qepjen e saje si dhe t’a ngjyrosi murin ekspozues. Keto ditet a fundit ishin dite te gjata pune dhe tanime po e ndiej lodhjen, por ne anen tjeter jame teper e kenaqur me ate se cka po shof pas perfundimit te punes.

3
The drape looks stunning. I am sure you agree too. However, despite the love as well as a lot of lining and interlining that I put in making this drape, it is not me that it made this drape look as beautiful as it is, but it is the SILK fabric itself.

Perdja duket per mrekulli, dhe besoj se edhe ju pajtoheni me kete konstatim. Megjithate, as vullneti me te cilin e qepa kete perde e as astari dhe nen astari qe ja bashkangjita gjate qepjes nuk jane ato qe e bejne kete perde kaq te bukur, por eshte materiali i mendafshet qe flete per veteveten.

8
For the silk colour I chose the deep olive, and since dupioni silk weave combines silk threads of different thickness and colours, it makes the fabric appear to change colours as it moves, giving it that metallic sheen finish which continues to be trendy in home furnishings; these trendy metallic finishes continue to provide a sophisticated sense of drama and elegance to any environment.

Si ngjyre, perzgjodha ngjyren ulliri te mbyllet, dhe pasi qe thurja e mendafshit dupioni kombinon fije te trashtesise dhe ngjyrave te ndryshme, kjo bene qe mendafshi te ndryshoj ngjyren ne perthyreje te drites dhe kur veshtrohet nga kendet e ndryshme, duke i dhene keshtu nje shkelqim metalik i cili vazhdon te jete ne trend ne mobilimin e shtepive; akcesoret metalike te cilat vazhdojne te jene ne trend, krijojne nje ndjenje sofistikuese te drames dhe elegances ne cdo ambient.

4
For the display wall I chose the palette of three colours to create an ombre effect which added a very modern look to the whole set up.

Per murin ekspozues perzgjodha paletten e tre ngjyrave me nentone te ngjashme dhe kete per te kriju nje ombre efekt i cili i dha nje pamje shume moderne ketije ekspozimi.

3
For the styling of the display wall I created a fresh modern twist to this rather traditional drape design. I found a small deer head in white colour and spray painted in gold, and a small gold bow was framed in a simple black frame. I displayed them right beside the drape curve.

Me styling-un e murit ekspozues e krijova nje ambient modern per kete perde qe konsiderohet si klasike dhe tradicionale. E gjeta nje koke kaprolli te lyer me te bardhe dhe e ngjyrosa ngjyre ari, dhe nje kordele te vogel poashtu ngjyre ari e vendosa ne nje kornize te thjeshte te zeze. Qe te dyja keto i vendosa pikerisht aty ky perdja fillon te lakohet.

Everything looks so fresh, polished, elegant and a bit of hmmm, let me say, dramatic.

Cdo gje duket shume fresket, e shkelqyer, elegante dhe hmmm, me lejoni te them, pak dramatike.

Curtain Design

Dizajn Perdeje
1

I am a big fan of curtains and drapes, and have always been. They are one of the easiest ways to give a room or any space a face lift and they have the power to instantly brighten or soften a room.

Gjithnje kame qene adhuruese e madhe e cdo lloj perdeje, dhe si e tille edhe kam mbetur. Nje prej menyrave me te lehta per t’a zbukuru nje dhome eshte permes perdeve. Ato kane fuqi qe ne menyre instante ta qelin dhe t’a zbusin atmosferen ne dhome.

Since I love curtains so much I always try to come up with unique and fun designs.

Pasi qe i dua perdet aq shume, gjithmone mundohem qe te krijoj dizajne unike dhe qe, sipas meje, jane kenaqesi per t’i shiquar.

2
The latest design is this fun curtain which was made for my wardrobe area in my bedroom. However, this cute drape will a make beautiful addition to any room or space, and this design will serve as a prototype for anyone who would be interested to order from the variety of fabrics samples of which are expected to be available next week in my studio.

Dizajni i fundit eshte kjo perde, qe duket qe eshte plote qejf, dhe e cila eshte punuar per kthinen e garderobes ne dhomen time.Megjithate, ky dizajn i perdes munde te jete pjese zbukuruese e cfardo dhome ose hapesire. Ky dizajn do te sherbej si prototip per te gjithe ata qe kishin me qene te interesuar t’a porosisin kete model nga materialet e shumellojta, mostrat e te cilave, do te jene ne dizpozicionin t’uaj qe nga java e ardhshme ne studion time.

Office Desk and Chair Design

15
Thanks to local craftsman my office desk and chair turned exactly the way I have envisioned them. It did not happen quick and easy, but thanks to my patience and persistence, finally I got what I wanted.
Duke ju falemnderuar zejtarve vendor tavolina ime e punes dhe karriga dolen saktesisht ashtu sic i kisha parashikuar. Kjo nuk ndodhi shpejte dhe lehte, por fale durimit dhe kembengulesise sime, me ne fund, mora ate cka kerkoja.

12
The day I signed the lease for my interior design studio I had a clear vision how i wanted my front reception area to look.
Qe ne diten kur nenshkrova kontraten mbi qirane per studion e dizajnit, une kisha nje vision te qarte se si doja qe te dukej kthina ballore e studios.

I wanted it to look sharp, crisp and elegant. However, knowing what the local furnishing stores had to offer I new that it is going to be difficult to achieve the look I was envisioning.
Doja qe ajo te dukej mprehet, fresket dhe elegante. Megjithate, duke pasur parasysh se c’fare kishin te ofrojne dyqanet vendore te mobiljeve, e dija se do t’a kisha te veshtire per t’a arrijte look-un te cilin e parashikoja.

Having this in mind I made some sketches of the desk and chair I had in mind and turned to local craftsman to seek help in creating that “perfect” desk/chair duo.
Duke e pase kete parasyshe, i bera disa skica te tavolines se punes dhe karriges dhe ju drejtova zejtarve vendor qe te me ndihmojne ne krijimin e nje cifti “perfekt” te tavolines dhe karrikes se punes.

Couple of weeks later, and after some further instructions in between, I got this beautiful chair desk duo which is now beautifying my front office, and as well is showing off the craftsmanship of local artisans.
Pas dy jave, dhe pas disa instrukcioneve shtese ne nderkhohe, u bera me nje set tavoline dhe karrige shume te bukur pune, i cili set tani e zbukuron pjesen hyrese te studios sime, si dhe e tregon punen e zellshme te zejtarve vendor.

I am more than happy the way those turned out, and also pleased that I found locally everything I needed for this project.
Tani jam me se kenaqur se si doli kariga dhe tavolina, dhe gjithashtu shume e lumtur qe e gjeta materialin e punes ne shitoret vendore.
16
Be it as a set or as individual pieces, these items will make a great addition to any home or office.
Qoft si set apo si pjese te vecanta, keta artikuj mobilues paraqesin nje shtese te bukur te dekorit te shtepise apo ambienteve te punes.
6 a
The desk/chair duo will also serve as prototypes and we are open to accept orders for making single pieces or in bulk.
Tavolina dhe karriga do te sherbejne gjithashtu edhe si prototipe, ashtu qe qe nga tani ne pranojme porosi per punimin e tyre si me cope apo ne sasi edhe me te medha.

Grey Kitchen Design

16

‘Grey,’ a colour that is sadly still associated with negativity and dreariness, is actually one of the most popular kitchen colours around!  It is certainly the hottest neutral tone, and not just for the kitchen but for home interiors in general.

Essentially, Grey is a neutral and stable colour tone.  It effects a calming atmosphere, which is perfect for a kitchen, and at the same time carries an innate air of elegance and sophistication.  Implemented with due care, these qualities will carry through beautifully into the home.

I was so happy that in my last project the homeowners colour of choice for their kitchen cabinets was GREY, and we were lucky to find a supplier in the area we live that had this elegant soft lustre grey laminate for front doors and drawers.
11

Since the best use of space did not allow for applying any kitchen shape other than straight line shape, I had to add some interest to the kitchen design by incorporating some horizontal glass cabinets and some open shelving at the centre of the kitchen. Glass cabinet door was also used to hide a central heating device which was unwisely installed (by the builder) right beside the kitchen wall and which was “dramatically” visible from all around the living area. For continuous flow, the etched glass doors were used for the shoe cabinet at the entrance.

Instead of using a standard pantry cabinet, I designed these deep botom drawers for storing food supplies and other kitchen staff which is not used daily; and, the empty space below was designed for storing bulky staff or supplies that require air and can be stored in baskets.

Initially, these drawers were designed to be custom made wider, but the cabinet maker did not properly follow the design and the measurements so during the installation of the kitchen we realized that we were ending up with a 20 cmm empty spot at the right side of the kitchen. This was a big fail from their part, but since the owners were in a rush to move in, and did not have time to wait for the drawers to be redone, I had to come up with the idea on how to fill that empty spot which would also serve somehow a function; hence, I designed this wine shelf which will provide for a plenty of storage for homeowners.

The bottom cabinets are deep drawers which allow for an efficient time spent in the kitchen. In traditional bottom cabinets with doors, one has to bend and search for the stuff stored in those cabinets, whereas using drawers as bottom cabinets everything is visible and right within the reach. This adds to the cooking efficiency as well as to the enjoyment of the time spent in the kitchen.
18B
While creating the design I was constrained with the design choices since there was no possibility of making any plumbing or ventilation adjustments. Regardless of the constraints, I managed to come up with a design which provides for a plenty of countertop working surface in this rather small kitchen.
18C
Moreover, the colour and the design of this kitchen is working perfectly with the overall design of the Living and Dining area. The homeowners are loving it, and I am happy that they gave me the chance to help them achieve their goal of having an efficient kitchen which blends beautifully with the Living Room and the Dinning Area.

Custom Dinning Table Set

8a

This post is all about a Dining Table Set which was custom made for the dinning spot in this Living Room.

Since the dining area in this small living room is right opposite from the sofa, it kind of makes this dining table set as a focal point of the room. Having in mind this I had to pay an extra attention in terms of choosing the design of the chairs, the dining table as well as the colour of the table and chairs.

The client wanted a chic, full size dinning table and chairs but at the same time she wanted that the set is not bulky and does not take a lot of living space.

To achieve this I suggested that we go with the bench seating at one side and three small backless chairs for the other side. When not in use the bench and all the chairs fits nicely and tightly under the table creating the feel of spaciousness in the dinning spot.

As I mentioned the dinning spot is kind of a focal point in this living room so I had to come up with a unique design of a dining table; hence, i designed this very funky dinning room table which at one side has a shelving unit instead of legs, while on the other side a set of curved legs add interest and a bit of glam to the whole dinning set.
8
The table color is dark grey while the bench and the chairs are light grey, upholstered in linen fabric and decorated with thumbtacks.

The dining spot turned quite elegant; it adds interest to the room and, most importantly, it does not feel bulky and does not take a lot of space.

Neutral Living Room Design

1O
My last project involves custom design of all furnishings, including the kitchen and wardrobes of a two bedroom condo in a brand new building located in a most dense Pristina neighbourhood.

The clients were upgrading from a one bedroom to a two bedroom condo. They sold their one bedroom with all their furnishings and they wanted a new design concept for their new place.

They already had in mind what they wanted and they even had in mind a colour scheme, but they needed help in implementing their design concept, so they asked for my help.
5
I had to work in a very tight time frame, and within a given budget so pulling everything together for less than a month was quite an achievement for me; considering that this was my first big project, and I was not aware of all of the resources at that time.

The clients were searching for that perfect sofa and chairs for months, but they could not find anything that suited their taste or something that could fit into their small open concept living area within which is the kitchen and dining area also.
6
We started with the sofa and chair design first. We opted for a long sofa which would fit up to four persons and two armless chairs. Armless chairs are perfect for small condos as they take up a very small amount of space. Both chairs and the sofa are raised considerably from the floor by using 20 cm decorative legs. Adding legs to the furniture is the best solution for small spaces, as this adds the feel of spaciousness; and, this is exactly how this rather narrow and small living room feels.
7
After choosing the sofa and chair design, we had to make a choice of the upholstery fabric and the drapes.
7B
Where we live the choices of upholstery fabric are rather limited, and you have to make a choice of fabrics which are already in stock. There are no known or renowned brands of upholstery or drapery fabrics represented here so one has to make the best choice of what is found in the market. If you decide to take a route of ordering online than the shipping and custom fees are quite costly, and it takes forever until you get the item shipped to your address; therefore, most of the times it is more reasonable to make the best choices and work with supplies found locally.
4
As you can see the living room project turned quite elegant and functional. The living room feels calm, crisp, spacious and above all welcoming. My clients are happy and they are loving it, and I am thrilled that I helped them have such a beautiful and elegant living space.
