Monochromatic colours schemes aren’t common in average home designs, but each time we seen one that has been done particularly well, we wish they’d trend even harder. Establishing a monochromatic decor design throughout an entire home is best done by varying certain pieces every so slightly by shade or tone but keeping things within the same colour family. Nagatinskaya, a residential project located in Moscow, Russia, is a shining example of how to do that perfectly.

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’!
Are you intrigued by the concept of micro-living but you’re not one for big city life? We’ll admit that, even though we scour the world over for unique home designs, most of the micro-living homes we’ve seen have been located in the heart of thriving cities and busy neighbourhoods… until now.
If you’ve never been to New Zealand then you only need to ask a friend who has or read even the simplest tourist review to learn about its reputation for gorgeous sprawling green space, luscious nature, and waters fit for some of the best surfing around. It makes sense, then, that designers and architects in the area would be intent on building homes that take advantage of the views and the space available.

In our coverage of freshly built and redesigned homes, we often come across architectural projects that involve updating older homes to give them a fresh lease a life. Occasionally we find that contemporary changes and additions can detract from the older charm of the building or look out of place in an older neighbourhood, but designers who really invest in the project and take care in creating contrast between the old and the new often create homes that are absolutely stunning in their update. One such example is Neumann Haus, a private residence in Hawthorn East, Victoria, Australia.

Have you always dreamed of living in a lovely, clean home that lets you wander in and out to a gorgeous outdoor space from just about any room? Perhaps you love modernly styled homes but you’re careful about which pieces you pick out so that your home doesn’t become modernized to the extent that it feels cold or unlived in?

Often when we see residences and homes that are heavy on wooden decor, we think of cottages, lodges, and beautifully rustic chic aesthetics. Every once in a while, however, a contemporary designer comes along and changes things up, putting a twist on rich wooden features that comes off modern above all else.

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!
