For some homeowners, architects, and designers, it’s all about interiors. Perhaps you’re quite pleased with the structure and design of your home on the outside but the inside could use a facelift? In our experience, these make for some of the most unique living spaces, particularly when there’s wooden finish involved. We’re always obsessed with the inclusion of gorgeously glossed or textured wood in home decor, but there’s a specific kind of style that we’ve been crazy for lately: unfinished chic. We find this aesthetic particularly intriguing when it’s combined with wood that has, in fact, been stained and finished in other areas of the house.
When we think “contemporary houses”, our minds automatically go to a number of features. For example, we start to picture clean white surfaces and colour schemes, bright pops of accent colour, unconventional decor shapes, and lots of crystal clear glass. If that sounds like the kind of contemporary house you enjoy most too, then you simply must check out the photos of Turned House in Treviso, Italy!
When you’re looking for home inspiration in preparation for building a house, it’s easy to scroll through all different homes, styles, and decors in search of aspects and features you like best. Sometimes, however, it’s nice to find a grand and impressive “super home” where the designers have gone all out and incorporate just about everything you could possibly wish for in one place, just to see how people have incorporated different awesome ideas in the past. One such glorious home is the beautiful Casa O’!
In some uniquely designed contemporary homes, the signs that you’re in for a visual treat are very subtle from the street. The outside of the home might look deceivingly “normal” at first, leaving you to be surprised when you walk through the door and encounter the modern visual masterpiece that is the interior. EN House is the perfect example of what we mean!
When we think of large lakeside homes, our minds automatically picture a few things. We imagine either small, cozy cottages where nature is the experience rather than the decor, or sprawling woodland lodges that make a distinct but beautiful claim on the countryside. 2Y House in Colico, Chile, however, puts a new spin on hillside lake homes that’s breathtakingly unique and actually quite environmentally friendly. The final effect is nothing short of gorgeous.
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!
