Decorating your child’s room can be fun and easy, especially when it comes to Disney themes. Kids are obsessed with most Disney characters. Colorful and friendly, these characters prove to be a perfect theme for your kids’ room décor. The advantage of using Disney as a bedroom theme is that there is so much stuff to choose from that it actually makes it difficult to pick the best ones. The characters can transform your kid’s space into an expression of their fantasies and interests.
There is a very voyeuristic part of us that loves to see the inner workings of other people’s homes and Juergen Chill’s photographs feed that interest. His unexpected vantage point and subject matter takes this into a whole new realm. Apartment Therapy is a place to discuss and discover ways in which to make the space in which you live healthy, beautiful, and functional. Juergen Chill is entering into “personal, intimate locations which not many know,” that stray from the norm, by many standards. By photographing rooms in bordellos and prison cells, he is giving us a glimpse into rooms that are appointed with things other than what we may consider typical motivations for decor.
We can take lightly take the freedom to choose how our surroundings appear. There are many people, however, that don’t have the freedom to exert much control at all. “Those that do not have it must adjust to whatever opportunities exist and strive to create their own place.” Juergen Chill has entered into the “homes” of prisoners in Germany, and given us a unique perspective on the rooms in which they spend a great deal of their lives. In a parallel universe, Chill has also granted us a peek at the rooms within a bordello. Clearly, the inspiration for the decor in these rooms may be different from what most consider. All of Chill’s photographs are done from a unique aerial perspective, and are at once intriguing and unsettling. Take a look at more of Juergen Chill’s fascinating work here. Investigate the rooms of others, and enjoy the graphic nature of his photographs.
You can be wise and creative by choosing sinks. This creative idea leaves you with two benefits. This is where you have to be really creative.

The most attractive is the Splash Collection comprising a shower base, wall hanging wash basin and a pedestal sink. Three colors plus white are available.

This particular gadget illustrates how important it is to conserve water. When you are using this sink to wash your hands, the fish loses its real estate if you take too much time. Yes, the water level in the fish bowl will actually go down if you are scrubbing your hands too long. In case you are wondering, there are safety features so the fish won’t have all of its precious water taken away. Just to let you know, you are not using the same water that a fish inhabiting. It’s just made to appear that way. The truth is the fish water drains underneath the sink, and then will return to normal.

The wall-mounted glass waterfall sink is an extraordinarily versatile and beautiful architectural element for the way we live today, enhancing the elegance and style of any bathroom.
Forget filling up the sink with water-this Abisko Washbasin from Eumar is more a water flume than a sink. Turn on the faucet, and the water flows all the way down its undulating shape, draining through a strategically placed grate.

No pricing info was available, but this is cool enough to sacrifice a bit of money down the drain.

When the hotel was announced in January 1989, it was to have a main tower of 46 stories and a smaller tower of some 20 stories, with a total of 400 rooms. Completion was planned for late 1991. Construction was financed by a loan from a consortium of six Japanese banks, led by the Long-Term Credit Bank. The others were the Ashikaga Bank, Mitsubishi Trust and Banking Corporation, Mitsui Trust and Banking Company, Nippon Credit Bank and Sumitomo Trust and Banking Company. The hotel was named Regent New York Hotel and managed by Regent International Hotels of Hong Kong, in which EIE International had a 30 percent interest.
When the Japanese real estate market imploded in 1990, the hotel was sold to the Four Seasons group to recover from bad loans. Today the hotel is owned by Ty Warner Hotels and Resorts.
