This Russian apartment, designed by Italians Lazzaro Rabon and Andrei Fabbri, has been floating around the interwebs and is too good not to pick up and post. The key to the interior design here, for me, is the designers’ deft way of mixing neutrals–various greys with some browns plus black and white thrown in–to create an attractive space that has a quiet but distinct liveliness. There’s both refinement and relaxation in these spces, with just the right amount of just the right pieces. One thing that I particularly appreciate is the level of contrast found in each of the rooms; I’m not a fan of using pieces together that are the same hue — solid black dining chairs with a solid black dining table, for example. Without contrast, everything blends together into one mass and there’s absolutely no pulse at all. Enjoy!

Do a search for showers on Pinterest and you’ll find everything from “How to Decorate Using Unicorns” (yeah, really–I’m not making that up) to how to use shower curtain rings to organize everything from baseball caps to scarves. And, in the midst of all that, you’ll also find some amazing showers. Here are a few of the favorite–both indoor and outdoor–showers that I found:
