More bathroom updates

Ok, so here’s the tile selection so far:

So, now the drama is the floor tiles. Grey? (to match the vanity?) or black? (too dark) – white – too bright! What? ideas? Help! The other issue is what’s available. Everything is these earthy (NON-50’s) tones that are NOT us. Frankly anything esle is really hard to [...]

Original Architecture Design: Suurupi House Extension in Estonia

Creating a design for a house extension can become very tricky. Aside from matching the exterior with the already existing one, the interiors have to blend also. Here is an extension that brakes the pattern of similarity, but creates a great effect while doing so. Often called “a matchbox” or a birds nest, this building [...]

Ghost Ships: Ten Scary Spirits Of The Seven Seas

Ghost ships are one of the most enduring legends of the sea, and tales of mysterious ships with missing crews have peppered the accounts of mariners both ancient and modern for hundreds of years. Some exist in the realm of rumor, others are real but remain unexplained.

Radiator Humidifiers for Comfortable Rooms During the Winter

You probably noticed that turning on the radiators makes the air harder to breathe in a room. If you haven’t, just think of those times you woke up feeling you have a sore and dry neck. This is due- we will leave out all the secondary causes- to the fact that there is not enough [...]

The bathroom plan – so far

Ok, so I may take flack, but yes, we’re taking down the pink plastic tiles in the bathroom, too many are missing or broken and so we’re replacing it all with square black tile. Here’s what we’re planning for a vanity (to the right).
Then we’re going to inset some glass tiles in a stripe around [...]

Dial4Light: Turning Street Lights On Via Mobile Phone

(image via: Julie_Berlin)
There are certain things that most of us take for granted – like well-lit streets. But leaving street lights blazing at all hours of the night, even in towns that don’t see much foot traffic, doesn’t always make ecological and financial sense. A handful of German towns are trying a rather unconventional solution [...]

Tell Me About Yourself, Dear Freshome Reader

Freshome is almost 3 years old and I feel it would be wonderful to give some space to our readers to present themselves. A lot of different people visit Freshome, some come and go, some come occasionally, some are with us daily, and a few of them have been with us from the very beginning. [...]

With two floors, high ceilings, large and inclined windows, this place was built on the site of an old warehouse. It is located at the fourth floor and is reachable by elevator also. Getting back to the interior design, [...]

Catedral de Sevilla.

The Catedral de Sevilla.

via Wikipedia;



The cathedral was built to demonstrate Seville’s wealth, as it had become a major trading center in the years after the Reconquista. The builders of the cathedral decided in July 1401 to build a new temple, as the ancient Muslim mosque was in bad shape after the 1356 earthquake. According to the oral tradition of Seville, the decision of members of the chapter was: “Let a church so beautiful and so great that those who see it built will think we were mad”. According to the minutes of that day, the new church should be: “a work such as good, which like no other.”


Construction began in 1402 on the site of a former mosque, following the capture of Seville from the Moors; it continued until 1506. Church workers gave half their salaries to pay for architects, builders and other expenses
