Many homes that incorporate a slightly rustic aesthetic tend to be very grand and feature statement pieces. You might enjoy the emphasis on whining wood finishes and the natural setting of the home but actually prefer a structure and decor scheme that manages to be somehow more understated in its rustic resplendence. Some designers seek to achieve that by sticking to natural textiles and materials in the building and decor, but also adoption a sort of minimalist chic shape and detail, skipping the pomp and circumstance in favour of simplicity. That’s exactly what the creators of Casa M sought to do!

Have you ever thought about what a house made entirely from concrete might look like, or perhaps about what kind of decor scheme might suit something as unique as a concrete house? Personally, we’d never actually seen a house made of concrete and when we imagined such a thing, we pictured it being cold, dark, and not necessarily pleasant for making a home in. The moment we saw pictures of Concrete House, however, we completely changed our tune and saw the beauty in such an unconventional idea!

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!
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.

Have you always been intrigued by historical cities and the way they were surrounded with habitable fortresses for protection! We have too, but we actually prefer an interior decor style that’s far different from the fortress style; one that’s clean, concise, and ultra modern in its uniqueness. As far as we knew, however, the two styles aren’t exactly complementary, so they aren’t commonly blended together in one home… until now! Mask House is a stellar example of how architects can break style rules in beautiful ways.

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!

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!
