While at first glance they don´t look like they belong together, in interiors they still have a lasting place. Certain colours and colour combinations will always be valid even if all kinds of trends change or even vanish. Which are those? Check out our photogallery.

Is the furniture that you have at home not perfectly matched? Not a problem. Perfectly matched furniture may make a too-monotone effect, and if you have many pieces that are all different, perhaps you should pick an especially original one that will grab most of the attention and put it in a prominent place. Check out our gallery for inspiration.

David Černý may not be a household name, but his innovative and at times controversial creations undeniably draw attention to the onlooker’s eye. Love him or hate him, Černý’s work certainly cannot be accused of being dull or unwitty. Many of his intriguing sculptures lay nestled within the historic nooks and crannies of Prague’s charming cobble-stoned streets, often eluding the less observant passersby.
In today's photogallery we will take a somewhat eerie tour and visit ghost towns around the world. The reasons why people abandon their homes are different in every case, but the places always carry messages from their last inhabitants.
The chance to own a house of one’s own is an unreachable dream for many people, especially in cities, but not just in large urban areas. To say good-bye to standardised accommodation may be a necessary first step along with a willingness to reduce living space quite dramatically. From camper vans and mobile homes through small log cabins, cottages and garden houses, even exploring the traditional accommodation of nomads – these and more are inspirational options for owning a home.
It all started in a very ordinary way – lightning struck siliceous sand, and the result was a fulgurite – a predecessor of today´s glass. That extremely simplified version of glass manufacturing does, however, include the essentials. The process of melting and the subsequent cooling of the enamel does correspond with the original substance. The production of glass is an appealing craft with a process that is worth seeing – check out our photoproject.
The historic city of Prague is best known for its Baroque style architecture and beer drinking culture. Nicknamed “The city of one hundred spires”, this central Bohemian metropolis has become a popular city break destination among travelers from far and wide. Famous sights include the Mala Strana, Charles Bridge, and perhaps most notably the strikingly picturesque Old Town Square. The Czech capital’s main attractions are barely a stone's throw from one another, and meandering through the narrow cobblestoned streets to each venue is a delight in itself. However, scattered abundantly throughout the city are alternative attractions just waiting to be explored, allowing the more inquisitive tourist to really get under the skin of Prague.
