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.

Pillows can be used to freak people out, as a conversation starter, or to simply accent a piece of furniture.

There’s something to be said about achieving a unique look when it comes to decorating bedrooms, and while most people would love to add their own personal touches to their bedrooms, actually achieving this goal can be challenging. Many homeowners fear that they’ll commit a fashion faux pas while others feel that they just don’t have what it takes to transform a blank canvas into something interesting.

A bedroom is a private room where people usually sleep for the night or relax during the day.Many houses in North America, Australia and Europe have at least two bedrooms-usually a master bedroom and one or more bedrooms for either the children or guests.

Furniture and other items in bedrooms vary greatly, depending on taste and local tradition. For instance, a master bedroom may include a bed of a specific size, one or more dressers, a nightstand; one or more closets; and carpeting. In some jurisdictions there are basic features which a room must have in order to be qualify as a bedroom. In many states, such as Alaska, bedrooms are not required to have closets and must instead meet minimum size requirements. Nevertheless, some real estate agents may stretch the definition when listing a home for sale.

This beautiful house is located in Portland, Oregon. The impressive design has been making for seven years, since 2004. When it just was a simple scratch on drawinng board. It is made by Robert Harvey Oshatz, an architect that involve a lots of his time in making of this wooden house. People around the world like it and and every single of them have different explanation of this . A lover of music, the client wanted a house that not only became part of the natural landscape but also addressed the flow of music. This house evades the mechanics of the camera; it is difficult to capture the way the interior space flows seamlessly through to the exterior. One must actually stroll through the house to grasp its complexities and its connection to the exterior. One example is a natural wood ceiling, floating on curved laminated wood beams, passing through a generous glass wall which wraps around the main living room.

This home was referred to as the Wilkinson Wave House by HGTV Extreme Living. You can see the waves, circles and cylinders, mimicking nature and music. The copper clad roof runs around the courtyard and is turned down to define the entrance. To enter this home, a person walks down a steep driveway and through a small courtyard. The floor then continues out over the slope as the ground rapidly drops away.

This home speaks to all of the senses. Being built on such a steep slope with the living spaces extended onto a deck, heightens the feeling of living in the forest canopy. By the time a person reaches the cantilevered deck amongst the trees, the floor level is about 25 feet above the ground.
