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 always dreamed, since you were just a little kid, of living in a tree house like Robinson Crusoe? We have too! We spent countless days wishing we had a massive tree house in our backyard so we could run around high up in the trees, enjoying the view from above and breathing in the fresh air. Well, some little kids grow up to be designers, and some designers aim to make their childhood dreams come true. That’s exactly what happened in 2016 when Mallinson Ltd and BEaM studio designed and built The Woodman’s Treehouse in West Dorset, England.
England is often commended for its unique city homes, proudly showing off old historical buildings crammed together with character in the streets of London and boasting old fashioned exteriors that contrast well with the modern makeovers the apartment has received inside. We wouldn’t be doing the country’s residential architectural feats justice, however, if we didn’t also take a look at the breathtaking homes creative designers have built and refurbished in the English countryside as well!
Have you ever witnessed a house that’s so breathtakingly modern and huge that you feel as though you could get lost just wandering its hallways and rooms to marvel at the aesthetic and decor? Well, that’s how we felt when we first saw pictures of Wind House, a private home in Bangkok, Thailand. The more we looked, however, the more we realized that there was something a little bit more unique about this particular home compared to others like it: it incorporates nature! More…
We’ve always loved the unique aesthetic that architects establish when they build a home that differs greatly in style from the other buildings around it, or from what you’d expect to see in a particular area or neighbourhood. For example, there are few things quite as cute as a home built with traditional style and decor to make it look like an old fashioned structure nestled among contemporary buildings on a modern street. The appeal goes the other way as well, though!
