The posts in this section give a complete round up of great homes and try to include imagery from every possible room in the home.

From the L shaped architecture, the poolside sun terrace is accessible at two sides, which makes the deck become a useful part of the overall floor space.

Sunny Open Plan Limantos Residence

A sunshine filled space with retractable glazed walls that give access to a huge sun terrace and pool.

The highly polished monochrome interior design is staged upon an attention grabbing floor treatment, which shows off a slick graphic that waves and swirls down the entire length of the room.

Home Design in Harmony with Nature

A sophisticated home design that is built in, around, and through lush green vegetation, making nature truly a part of the home.

Private pool

Posh Portuguese Residence With Beautiful Lake Views

Stunning Portuguese home situated in the Algarve, featuring sweeping views through glass walls.

Careful restoration and renovation of the uppermost sloped ceilinged space has resulted in a unique dwelling that is filled with premium materials, and executed to a high finish.

Swedish Attic Apartment

A fresh white decor scheme over a quirky open plan attic apartment in Stockholm, Sweden.

The open plan living area is arranged around a central column where a subtle gray console table is brightened by two sunshine yellow vases at each end. The colorful additions are contrasted by a blue wall clock above the flatscreen TV.

Blue and Yellow Home Decor

A refreshing home decor scheme with fresh blasts of blue and yellow color with the furniture and accessories.

Fresh white was used as the predominant base color to keep the apartment feeling spacious and airy, and the highly reflective floor helps to lift the whole scheme.

Vibrant Blue and Purple Apartment Decor

Modest open plan apartment decorated in shades of blue and purple in the living room, and relaxing neutrals in the bedroom.

The first of this duo of designs is a home in Kiev, which has a feminine feel without resorting to the all too overused pink and sparkly, or fuzzy red love hearts, though this visual does have a funky lipstick-red current running through it that has been clashed with purple-pink and a zesty splash of orange. The apartment was designed for a young girl “living in the rhythm of the 'Big City”.

Homes with a Colorful City Vibe

Two city apartments that embrace a multitude of colorful accent pieces to bring a funky vibe throughout the interior.

Rooted on the vertical face of a coastal headland, this residence revels in sweeping views of stunning natural surroundings, and is blessed with a mild coastal climate that has allowed for a flowing integration of interior and exterior spaces.

Oceanfront House With Pool, California

This lovely Californian home has been designed to have sociable interior and exterior spaces, welcoming to family and friends.

An entire wall has been dedicated to a home library of books, on dramatic dark shelving.

Dreamy Interiors

Five contemporary home interiors based on the soft neutral color palette.

Quirky artwork adorns the wall of the living area.

Architect’s Villa in Saint-Tropez

A chic vacation home nestled on the hillside of l'Escalet, with panoramic views over the Mediterranean Sea.

Massive works of art adorn the wall above the sofa, depicting dramatic landscapes in tones of black and white; these compliment the stark black window frames of the towering dual height windows.

Clean Modern Decor

A beautiful black and white interior of a modern home, featuring an open plan layout and large walk-in closet.

Entertainment room

Michael Jordan’s $16 million House

Basketball fans and interior design enthusiasts alike will love this trip around Michael Jordan's impressive mansion.

Each dining space in the home is marked out with a run of attractive pendant lights.

Spacious City Dwelling

A beautifully decorated, city based family apartment with 'smart home' functionality.

Another level was created with the addition of a new mansard roof, to house private quarters with individual rooms. A dressing room, bedroom and bathroom fill the added floor area beneath the slopes. The decision to create a mansard level in the house was made by the architects based on being an easier and cheaper way to attain reconstruction approval, and all of the planning solutions for this home came about in answer to the restricted dimensions of the location.

Small Apartment with Snug Storage

A cozy small home design, with a second floor built under the eaves that incorporates a den-like sleep zone.

The view from one end to the other of the huge living area is completely unobstructed, making the home appear cavernous and perhaps a little cold-though a big splash of color chases the chills away in the form of funky wall art above a dining sideboard.

Cavernous Cool Interior

A huge open plan interior decorated in wood tone and black against a white backdrop.

Aside from making a striking statement, the 'winged' roof provides extra shelter over the outdoor areas, as well as filtering the bright Australian sunlight to the rooms within.

The Wing House, Australia

See an amazing example of contemporary architecture that has its own 'wing-span'!

A quirky arrangement of wall cabinets makes the kitchen area appear larger than it's actual proportions, as the added interest drags the eye up and around the room.

Small Apartments

A scattering of small home design inspiration for modest modern homes.

In this airy lounge-diner, all of the main items of furniture have been kept pale to match the walls, which makes the addition of a chartreuse area rug all the more unexpected. The zingy color works beautifully against white, and smaller black side pieces.

Glowing Interior Designs

A set of sparkling interior designs with fresh features to bring interest and color to the home.

Our first visit is to an attic above the old fishermen's harbour of Camogli, a village near Genova. The project, by architectural firm gosplan, aimed to incorporate a living room, a kitchen, a studio, two bedrooms and a bathroom into the flat, despite the awkward shaped gambrel roof and the tiny floor area. The outcome is described as being halfway between existenzminimum (a subsistence dwelling) and a fashionable Le-Corbusierian cabanon.

Simple Design Vs Super Design

Two opposite design styles for two small open plan modern apartments.

Couture House in Tel Aviv

Striking modern architecture mixed with elements of traditional home style.

As is typical now in modern life, an entire wall has been dedicated to home entertainment-though on this occasion the design incorporates an attractive bank of wooden fuel for the fire that has been moved to a second billing position at the side. This shuffling of priorities allows the TV to be enjoyed at the optimum position whilst avoiding heat damage, but still allows the homeowner to enjoy a cozy fireside ambiance as an alternative to the hidden heating system.

Open Plan Layouts for Modern Homes

Two gorgeous home designs centered around open plan layouts and attractive storage solutions.

Folding doors reveal the formal dining area, providing the perfect opportunity for Christmas guests to migrate back and forth between the mince pies and the mingling.

A Christmas Dream Home

A grand cabin-style home decorated in Christmas magic; a perfect place to spend the holiday season.

The flatscreen television has been mounted with its fixings straight through the wall mirror, meaning the power cable and socket can be recessed into the wall and hidden behind the glass for an uncluttered look.

A Small Apartment with Big Dreams

Luxurious interior design features in a modest sized apartment, featuring bedroom, bathroom and open plan living spaces.

Aqua and yellow hues create a cheerful summertime feel in the lounge area, where a piece of modern wall art matches the soft furnishings.

Small 29 square meter (312 sq ft) Apartment Design

A cheerful approach in interior design to a small open plan apartment.

Glass floor

The Stunning Sky Penthouse in Israel

A state of the art penthouse with spectacular sweeping views over the city of Tel Aviv.

In the living room, a white sofa that would look at home in a spaceship swoops into position in front of a TV wall that has an integrated sound system and concealed media cabinets beneath the screen. The ceiling cutaway forges a path from the lounge area around to the kitchen and dining spaces, revealing an overhead river of light.

Futuristic Penthouse with Twin Toilets!

This home would suit those who would love to live in a space station-but could you cope with the communal toilets?

There is inspiration for rooms all over the home in this fresh looking dwelling, so let us see which ideas we can borrow starting in the main room. The open plan lounge/kitchen/diner is a long open space, but there are several factors at play to prevent it from appearing plain. The first element is the stripe of glossy teal created by a run of wall units on the kitchen side. The base units are knocked back in a more subtle shade, so that the left wall does not overpower the lounge area on the right.

Spacious Apartment With Family Friendly Decor

See how this apartment design achieves attractive and original decor solutions in a modern open plan space.

The home has a total area just short of one thousand square meters, with a total living space of 656 square meters, complete with four bedrooms with bathrooms and dressing rooms.
