Windowed walls are one of the biggest design trends of the year, allowing sunlight to enter your home and life! Actually, layering plenty of natural light is one of the main characteristics of contemporary style, and it has several benefits for our health and also it makes the room look bigger than it actually is. The right balance between natural and artificial light can emphasize volumes and shapes of the room, addinng depth and contrast.
Contemporary means ‘at the moment’ and it’s a style that is always evolving throughout the years. A design that is a mix of different aesthetics and features – it illustrates contemmporary trends, while paying homage to the past. In contemporary ambiances, you can see modern elements mixed, in a bold and elegant way, with art-deco or traditional design pieces.

“Architecture, music, fashion—they’re all forms of expression. When it comes to the places I live, I definitely take a less-is-more approach,” says the Latin Grammy Award– winning artist. “A house should be a place where you can rest your spirit. I’ve tried to create places that feed my soul, not my ego,” he avers.

“Art is really the protagonist here. There’s lots of color in the pieces Jose collects, so he wanted a very muted palette to keep the focus on the paintings and sculpture,” the designer says, noting signature works by KAWS, WhIsBe, Josh Sperling, and Takashi Murakami. A custom display cabinet housing three of KAWS’s Companion sculptures provides a visually permeable boundary separating the bedroom from the main social area of the loft, which is centered on a giant sofa and a groovy, free-form orange carpet that nods to the artwork from Balvin’s Vibras album.“The only real door in the loft is the one to the bathroom. The idea was to keep the space as open and fluid as possible,” Ortega explains.

“Gone are the days of big bulky tubs that collect dust,” Alexandria Hubbard of Case Design/Remodeling said. “When people do take baths, they want the ultimate spa experience. People love the small, unique look of the Japanese soaking tub. They take up less space in the bathroom, come in multiple different finish options, and even will help save on you water bills as they consume less water.”
Some of these bath tubs offer water depths with more than 22 inches to guarantee that an average adult can be submerged up to their shoulders when sitting upright. These tubs are also available in different sizes: for one person or two and they have several benefits for our health.
