Have you always dreamed of owning a home that’s quite on the minimalist side, but doesn’t quite cross the line into the world of industrial decor? That’s a gorgeous aesthetic, but it’s also quite particular because there’s a fine line between the two when it comes to furnishing, fabrics, materials, and accessories. Adding a few pieces in more traditional textiles but including modern shapes or choosing one nearly-industrial feature and keeping the colour scheme light can help you strike a balance between the two. A transformative design project called Interior Renovation of a House in Mas Nou is the perfect example of how architechts and interior designers can work together to hit the mark!
This cabin, located in the Boulder Mountains in Colorado, USA, has a total area of 2,760 ft2 and was constructed by Renée del Gaudio in 2013. One look at the spectacular vistas, which include a 360º view of the mountains, and we’re left without any doubts that this is a more than beautiful location.
This house located in a beach area in Buenos Aires, Argentina was built as a holiday residence for its owners by Estudio Galera on a plot of over 1,000 m2. Its exterior, made of stone, concrete, and glass walls, hides in a lush forest that shelters and gives it privacy.
When many people think of modern housing, their minds often go to brand new buildings that have only just been constructed. On the contrary, however, some of our favourite contemporary homes have actually already been standing for generations and have simply been recently refurbished. We’re huge fans of any design and decor scheme that makes an otherwise outdated building into something modern but comfortable. That’s exactly the story with House Four!
This historic building, surrounded by olive trees and other vegetation, is located right in the heart of Ostini, Apulia, Italy.

When it comes to contemporary decor and home design, are your favourite homes always the ones you encounter that use monochromatic colour schemes and straight, geometric lines to build an aesthetic that embodies the height of modernity while also incorporating some effective minimalism? Then we certainly urge you to check out Attico a Roma!
This peculiar home built by Fujiwaramuro Architects in Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan enjoys beautiful wooden walls on its exterior, as well as a planted walkway outside of the home. The home’s most unique feature is the rounded-shape earthen floor that begins at its garden and continues into the house.
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!
Sometimes, in the world of architecture and home decor, it’s nice to keep things minimal and simple. Even if that’s your primary concept for a home, however, you can still make sure every room has at least one piece that pops in order to give your space some personality. One of the best examples of this we’ve seen so far is the succinctly named Apartment.
