Innovative design for this gorgeous house

This house has a very innovative shape with its unique shape when looked from the top. This luxurious 10650 sq. feet house which is located on a 17250 sq. feet area near the mountains of Sierra Madre has an exterior made of black and brown volcanic stone along with IPE wood, white stucco and steel and was designed by GLR Architects. There is a wonderful garden that is very good looking when viewed from the living room.

But the materials used are not the only ones that are uncommon. This house, if you want to call it like that, is huge. It would really be too much for just one family. It has a modern design, both in terms of exterior and interior style. From the outside it looks very imposing and serious. But once you get inside there a very warm and cozy feeling that seduces you immediately. And like most of the modern houses nowadays, it has a very simple, almost minimalist interior design. It’s modern and elegant. It’s a grandiose structure, decorated with style.

All the pieces are chic are carefully chosen for that particular room of the house. The attention to details is amazing. I imagine it must take a lot of time to furnish this whole house, so I don’t envy the ones who had to do it at all. But I do envy the ones who get to enjoy living in there. The house has everything you need, even a pool. The location is great and views are also amazing.

Beautifully built Irregular shaped house

Rockefeller Partners Architects has utilized a big plot of 10,000 sq. feet to build this gorgeous residence. Perfect utilization was impossible because of mainly the irregular shape of the house and the presence of a small grove containing eucalyptus and pine trees. The house is smartly split up into two wings, which enabled and maximized the view along with reduced massing.

It’s a great example of how nature and people can live together peacefully and of how you get to adapt to what nature has to offer. The location of this house was not very friendly when the building first started. There were some difficulties with the irregularities of the ground but it seems like everything was solved in time.

Suspension lamp with a difference

Le Soleil is a special suspension lamp made out of polycarbonates that are available in different color schemes in the market. It can be found in red, white, and aquamarine color options. These special suspension lamps create a unique luminous effect because of the use of the polycarbonate material in the shade. The beams of the light in these lamps are projected upwards with the illumination, which is directed downwards. The Le Soleil is available for 1551$.

The lamp has an irregular shape and that makes me crazy. I guess I have a problem. But still, I admit it’s a nice detail and it makes it look more modern. I particularly like the bright colors used to paint the lamps. There are three options for you to choose from: the classic white, the red and a very beautiful tone of green. The last one is my favorite. The light emanated by these lamps is a very soft one. So this makes them appropriate for the bedroom, where a diffuse light is everything you need to set up a romantic atmosphere or to simply relax while watching TV or reading a book before going to sleep.

It’s a really nice lamp design. And it’s simple too. The only detail that I can name is the irregular shape. Other than that it’s a very simple and quite common shape for a suspended lamp. But it’s small things like this one that make an item special.

Bookshelves inspired from nature

Truly innovative designs available in bookshelves are plenty with the scope for further designs yet to come. AL 28.98 have brought a truly innovative bookshelves which is really mind blowing as this bookshelf give your home a real sophisticated touch. This design is greatly inspired from nature itself and it has other function like using them as room dividers along with its normal function as bookshelves.

So if you like nature and you regret not having the possibilities to include it in your home, at least you can imitate some of the shapes with the help of other materials. For example, this is a storage system for books and its shape resembles a tree. There are shelves placed on one side and on the other to create the illusion of branches.

Comfortable armchairs

The idea behind the design of this good-looking armchair with chrome leather covering is actually very simple. Nevertheless, at the same time the chair has a great comfortable seating with the arm part of the chair that is also covered with the black chrome leather. The exact measurements of this armchair are not yet known apart from the height, which is around 35 inches.

This is a manly design for a chair. I say that because it has that robust look that only men seem to like. And it has those storage spaces on the sides, for magazines or for the remote control so that the user won’t have to get up for anything. It’s a lazy design if you ask me. And the color is not attractive at all.

It looks very comfortable but it also looks ugly. There’s nothing stylish about this chair. Not even the legs. Nevertheless, it has a common design. This means that something must be really good about this chair, otherwise people would stop buying them. So I guess it must be really comfortable and functional. And once you realize that, it start to look less ugly and it becomes more and more attractive. Now, that I’m looking at it again, it doesn’t look that bad. It would make a nice addition to a living room, regardless of the style. It’s a combination between old, traditional and modern.

Hill side three storied house

Located on the beautiful hillside in Marin Country, San Francisco the 3 storied house designed by Berkeley based McGlashan, the architecture look splendid. The landscape and the color of the house blend very well as it give a great view of the scenic beauty, which is breathtaking. The house has 3 floors with roof top garden which are native and draught resistant.

It’s a very beautiful house. The location is great and the views are also amazing. The design of this mansion is at the limit between traditional and modern. In terms of exterior design, it’s more modern than traditional but there’s than deck that makes it even. And as for the interior design, there are some very beautiful features that have a vintage touch like the bathroom mirror or the dining room.

But these pieces are complemented by other features like the glass shower cabin, the traditional fireplace built into the wall or other furniture pieces. So it’s a nice balance between these two styles that makes them both look good and complement each other.  It’s not easy to manage to do that.

Gold is a precious color, but when used excessively it can look very kitschy. I personally don’t like this color at all. Most of the times it’s used excessively or in a bad way and the results are ugly. So even if this is the latest trend, don’t be fooled by the rest of the world.
