Jade Apartment by Ryan Lai Architects (36)

When you picture your ideal home, do you imagine something calming, chalk full of soothing colour schemes and smooth, pleasant materials? If we could, we’d live in a house that looks like a spa all year round to feel as relaxed as we might leaving our latest massage or facial. That’s exactly what the designers of Jade Apartment were going for in their aesthetic and design!

Art Deco Minimalism by Ghiora Aharoni Design Studio (3)

For some architects and home designers, the art of building a house is just that; an art. In fact, when a designer creates a beautiful apartment or house that they feel really encompasses the essence of a style or aesthetic, they often give the home a name that communicates that for the world to see. That’s the case with this breathtakingly unique home in Manhattan, New York City, USA!

Lahinch House by Lachlan Shepherd Architects (8)

There are many different features we picture when we try to think of our ideal modern home. Two of the biggest, however, are certainly the ability to enjoy the sunshine and the view from anywhere on the property, including inside the house, as well as the incorporation of art. Lahinch House features both of these things, so it’s no wonder that we were impressed when we saw the photos!

By • Jan 31, 2017

If you love the idea of living in a quiet place, far away from the bustle of the city, this is the perfect house for you! It has a wonderful view to the lake, which we can enjoy sitting from the terrace or just sitting from home looking through the glass walls. Can we ask for more? This was the idea that SBM Studio had when they built this house in Kharkov Oblast, Ukraine, to create a space where the owners could enjoy the relaxing views over the lake and mountains that its privileged location offers. With a decorative style appropriate to its location, this singular home brings us the same sensation in its interior as on its exterior. A rustic air, a nature that floats in the atmosphere and transports us.

Pereira Narvaes House by SUCRA Arquitetura + Design (3)

Sometimes in our search for impressive home designs and decor we come across the perfect blend of many things. Many homes often harness one particular style in a beautiful way and run with that decor theme and aesthetic, keeping the style quite uniform throughout the house. Occasionally, however, we find a house that takes a few key features and builds them together in the same place in innovative and fantastic ways. That’s the case with a particularly unique home called Pereira Narvaes House!

Carmel Valley by Sagan Piechota Architecture (21)

When you hear that a home is nestled into a valley, what do you picture? Our minds automatically go to a green expanse filled with lovely sprawling trees, with a modest wooden house in the middle. We also envision open concept spaces that don’t just embrace a wider indoor construction, but rather incorporate the wondrous outdoors space right into your living space. Imagine how pleased we were, then, when we came across pictures of Carmel Valley!
