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!

When you live in a climate that’s pleasant and warm all year round, you’ve got the perfect scenario for a stunning open concept home. With every building that adopts an open concept, however, the challenge is to find innovative ways to still provide the residents with enough privacy to make them feel comfortable and safe in their daily lives. As with anything, a license to get creative in one feature opens doors for unique decor and design elsewhere in the home as well. KAP-House is a shining example of what we mean.

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!
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?

This modern and wonderful studio, covering an area of 500 square feet, forms part of an extension added to a home by Carney Logan Burke Architect in Jackson, Wyoming, USA.
The home uses adobe – a natural and sustainable construction practice that consists of a mixture of moist earth, sand, gravel, and clay – for its walls, concrete for its floors, and copper for its roofing, creating a unique space that perfectly combines textures and materials in its interior.
