Have you always dreamed of living in a lovely, clean home that lets you wander in and out to a gorgeous outdoor space from just about any room? Perhaps you love modernly styled homes but you’re careful about which pieces you pick out so that your home doesn’t become modernized to the extent that it feels cold or unlived in? Then prepare to be inspired by a home that fits this very description to a T.
When we think of large lakeside homes, our minds automatically picture a few things. We imagine either small, cozy cottages where nature is the experience rather than the decor, or sprawling woodland lodges that make a distinct but beautiful claim on the countryside. 2Y House in Colico, Chile, however, puts a new spin on hillside lake homes that’s breathtakingly unique and actually quite environmentally friendly. The final effect is nothing short of gorgeous.
When we’ve lived in smaller spaces in the past, we’ve often gone out of our way to furnish and decorate them in as modern a style as possible. We find that the more clean and contemporary a smaller space is, the more organized and less crowded it looks. This isn’t why all small, modern looking apartments are styled to look very contemporary, but it sure explains our love for them!
When we think of stone walls, we usually think of little stone cottages where the rocks are featured on the outside of the house, making it look like it was made with rocks found right on the country land. This particular house, however, changes that conception of “stone walls” a little bit because these designers decided to feature their stonework on the inside of the home!
Have you ever noticed that England has some of the very best names for their homes? Rather than having a street number, some older or historical homes have titles that describe the home, the area, or what the style of the building was when it was first built. This is a long lasting tradition all over the country and Pear Tree House, a private home in London, England, is no exception.
More and more, adult couples are choosing to live in communal residences rather than taking on the fiscal and physical commitments that come with being home owners. Rather than being solely responsible for the upkeep of things like yards, swimming pools, and the general area around their homes, people who live in communal residences split those responsibilities between them, which often means that the homes stay even more well put together and beautiful looking than usual! The Ramatuelle residential project, which was completed by architectural designer Laurence Sonck in 2015, is no exception!
Have you always dreamed about spending a beautiful weekend in the wilderness, enjoying all the natural wonders that a gorgeously calming forest has to offer? Well, you’re certainly not alone in that desire. In fact, some people want to experience that type of relaxation so much that they actually choose to build their homes in wooded areas in order to create that kind of lifestyle for themselves full time.
When it comes to sleek, angular home architecture, Japan is certainly the place to look for inspiration. Countless homes across the country feature beautifully streamlined decor schemes and both interior and exterior designs. NT House, for example, is a veritable poster home for the kind of clean, angular aesthetic that immediately jumps to our minds when we think “modern living”.
“Micro living” might be all the rage in some cities right now, but that doesn’t mean anyone’s prepared to live in a tiny space if they don’t have the kind of furniture, style, and organizational skill that goes with making a very small apartment into a functioning home. In big cities like London, England, however, families are often left with no choice if they want to live right in the thick of the culture and social experience that city life has to offer! One architectural and design company understood this struggle all too well, so they redesigned a small private residence, fondly named Nevern Square Apartment, for a young family in need of a fresh start.
