It is not difficult to see the 1970's influence in the harsh exterior of the home. Slate gray tiles and a low profile could easily be off putting. That's why as part of the renovation, some walls were removed to make room for floor to ceiling glass, which makes both the interior and exterior more welcoming overall.

Mexico City Restoration Adds Luxury Comforts to a Challenging 1970s Design

One glimpse at this Mexico City home and you would have no idea it started as a 1970's atrocity.

In true loft form, the main living area is completely open with easy movement from a fully outfitted modern kitchen space to a large living room and welcoming stylish entryway (complete with whimsical artwork/room divider). The polished concrete floors replaced older marble tile and give the room an instantly modern, industrial look.

An Eclectic Loft Designed for Cats (and their humans)

If a dog is man's best friend then a cat is man's best decorator.

This first loft is the ultimate in simplicity. The angular design, with deep windows reflecting the squared off ceiling as well the flat lofted space above the main living area give the home an almost futuristic feel. Simple furnishings managed to intensify the space with sleek stained wood and minimal superfluous decoration. Although the home may not measure up in terms of square footage, the low profile furniture coupled with the lofted design make it feel positively cavernous.

Five Unique Lofts that Use Space Creatively

These five lofts are all incredibly different but still manage to use a lofted bedroom design effectively and elegantly.

The kitchen and main living area is quite open with windows running the length of one of its walls. Cleverly placed indoor plantings separate the large lime sectional and nesting coffee tables from the small but sleek kitchen. Wood paneled walls match hardwood floors while creative built in shelving acts as both storage and display.

A Cozy Apartment in Kyiv with Soft Citrus Accents [Includes Floor Plan]

This cozy apartment in Kyiv offers plenty of spaces for both adults and children in its calming and welcoming design.

The main living area is fairly spacious with a huge, comfortable sofa (from Minotti) that dominates a large portion of the area. The grey color palette extends to many of the pieces in the space, including an armchair (also from Minotti) and a plush area rug. When a man's hair start to grey it gives him a distinguished air and the same clearly holds true in this home. The greys and neutral tones are distinguished, sophisticated and indeed quite calming.

A Mid-Century Desert Oasis in Palm Springs

A mid-century modern home in Palm Springs is the embodiment of its time and style.

The round exterior, which offers 360 degree views of the surrounding property, sits on more than an acre of lush landscaping. The vibrant greens from carefully clipped shrubbery stand in contrast to the calm neutrals of the building materials.

Featuring light woods and whitewashed brick, this loft feels positively clean and airy. There's thoughtful storage, a playful blue accent wall, and a striking black iron staircase leading up to the lofted area. It's very modern, with each furnishing carefully curated.

The house does not protrude from the ground, with the upper portion lying flush with the surrounding dirt. Instead, the home's volume is set inside the earth with glass and water covering the exposed spaces.

An Innovative House Carved Out of a Cliff

Inspired by Brutalism and built by the sea, this stunning and innovative house is a sight to behold.

The main living area in the apartment is built around an open floorplan. The spacious living room features floor-to-ceiling windows that let in summer sun as well as heavy curtains to keep out those gloomy Florida afternoons. The furnishings certainly have a mid-century bent from oversized gray upholstered sofas to sleek leather side chairs. However, the inspiration is more subtle than some straight up reproductions, which is a nice change.

A Miami Apartment in Stormy, Muted Tones

Step inside a modern Miami apartment that strays from the ideas of South Beach brightness in favor of cool, muted tones.

The house is situated on 3.5 acres, overlooking Oak Pass. The house itself measures 8000 square feet (743 square meters), though its hidden design makes it appear smaller. The property is home to more than 130 oak trees, which were an integral part of designing the home. Not only did the architect and homeowners want a space that could easily look out upon this spectacular private forest, but they wanted an exterior that itself did not draw attention away from the beautiful natural surroundings.

An Upside Down House in the Woods Flips the Architectural Script

Surrounded by Oak Trees, this Oak Pass house is truly modern and ultra sleek.

The attic itself is not enormous, but the vertical space meant there could be enough room for a comfortable home as long as things were arranged creatively. The architects used the vaulted, slanted ceilings to create a mezzanine which in turn created the effect of a two story home, with a bedrooms tucked upstairs and an open living area below.

An Old Attic is Transformed into a Gorgeous Apartment

This attic transformation from Gilwice, Poland is an amazing makeover for a modern apartment.

In the main living area of this first home, primary colors yellow and red are pitted against some cool oatmeal neutrals. The way these bright colors pop really give the otherwise simple and modern home some playful pizzazz. The palette really carries itself throughout the shared space, from an accent wall to dining chairs and throw pillows and even into the master bedroom, where the yellow takes on a more muted tone.

Two Homes with Colorful Kids Rooms Included

Nothing can inspire a kid quite as much as growing up in a home where beauty and design are highly valued.

In order to deal with the steep pitch of the land, the home was created in a layered design, with guests entering through a central level of the home and private spaces being hidden below, nestled in the side of the mountain itself.

2 Provence Style Apartment Designs With Floor Plans

These dreamy French-inspired apartments would be the perfect European retreat in any country.

In order to make the home comfortable as well as beautiful, it was constructed with two main areas: one that mimics a more traditional house with solid walls and foundations and another that more closely resembles the Farnsworth aesthetic. In the front pavilion, an elevated, glass enclosed patio is made of sliding doors that can open for ventilation and columns that keep the building up off the ground and allow water to flow underneath.

The first loft has all the desirable trappings of a converted industrial space. Sky high ceilings over look the wide open spaces below. Floor to ceiling windows let light stream in and across the varied but simple industrial-inspired accessories including steel chairs and concrete walls. The space maintains warmth by including not just plenty of white and light but also smooth wood flooring.

The first space comes from the design team at Plasterlina. The dark, cool color story is a bit of a departure from many modern spaces with similar styles, which often focus instead on whites and muted grays. Here, deep chocolate and olive colors pack an autumnal punch. Lighter colors are used on the upper level, which serves as a way to divide the main living area from the upstairs loft as well.

The ground level of the house consists of a back pool deck with room for entertaining. The crystal clear pool has a view that is just as clear of the protected bay area behind the house, and the modern ground floor interiors. The living room, kitchen, and dining area are unsurprisingly a part of a lush open floorplan. Because the walls can, in effect, open up to the world, cooling breezes can constantly be filtering through the house, keeping the environment comfortable. This air flow, in addition to other features we will discuss, keeps the home net-neutral for energy and waste.
