Finding decent sized housing in the middle of a city can be difficult and expensive because many full sized housing options within the city limits are quite small but quite highly priced. Every once in a while, however, a designer comes across a lot where an old home can be transformed into something more contemporary. Have you ever seen, however, modern city homes that are so in line with stereotypical city living that they end up looking and feeling quite cold? Well, the designers of House Addition found a way to create a house with the perfect level of city contemporary in a decently sized, comfortable home!

Do you come from a family of avid learners and scholars who are always looking for creative spaces to learn new things and grow their imaginations? Going out of your way to set yourself up somewhere new while you’re studying can be fun and productive, but sometimes you just need to hunker down at home and really get things done. Imagine, then, how awesome it must be to own a home that’s actually designed for things like studying, creation, and great productivity? The Study House is a perfect example of what we mean!

Have you always dreamed of owning a modern home, but your definition of “modern” is a little bit homier than some? We’ve all seen homes before that were so contemporarily styled as to look cold and uninviting, but not every modern home is built this way! Some people believe modern styles to be a little more than pristine shades of white and clean lines. Some are instead more casual despite staying true to many details, like the signature geometric furnishings. This expansive home, gorgeously named Belleview Modern, is the perfect example of the classic contemporary concept that we mean!
If you like the countryside and dream of the famous landscapes we see in pictures from Italy, with its tiny towns and charming corners, so full of history, you’re going to love this.
With its old, brick walls and glass windows, it is a beautiful house surrounded by breathtaking vistas. Gorgeous gardens grow at nature’s will, and there is a recreational area in which the protagonist is a large pool, its still surface a perfect reflection of its serene surroundings. What better place to take in nature and all its harmony on a sunny afternoon?
You’ve probably heard the saying about living in glass houses, but have you ever actually seen a glass house? Okay, so maybe there aren’t very many residential buildings that are actually built of glass, but some designs that feature windows heavily get pretty close! That’s what look at the absolutely stunning and utterly sun filled M House is like.

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.

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!
