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.

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.

Beneath the chunky aged beams of this room lies a layout of modern pieces perched on area defining rugs. Two powder blue accent chairs prevent the rooms palette from becoming too stale, and an injection of green is brought in with the plants and artwork.

Beautiful Parisian Apartments

A cool collection of French interior design over a number of Parisian homes.

This first space explores an open plan lounge through to kitchen area, where we can see the main feature of the piece is an entire wall painted in chalkboard paint. Not only is this wall treatment a great place to dream up your own original quirky wall art that can change on a whim, but it creates a practical surface on which to scribble notes and reminders.

Homey Feeling Room Designs

Four sets of beautiful home design with lovely touches for practical living.

The first stop is the still in progress Lipki apartment, a flat in the old district of Kiev, Ukraine. Inside this dwelling we find a very minimalistic look with stark white walls and low level contemporary sofa. The only color in the entire lounge space come from a little detail in the propped up poster art.

Sophisticated Room Designs with Stripped Back Style

Simplistic decor schemes for the living room, kitchen and bathroom, set in four contemporary 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.

Interior Design Based On Budget: Two Designs for Two Budgets

Two designs for the same space that explore what can be achieved when using budgets at opposite ends of the scale.

Designed by visualizer Andrey Volkov, the look builds slowly with a minimalistic living room scheme that gathers its warmth from the rich wood tone of the entertainment feature wall.

Apartment Design For Young Man & Woman

One masculine apartment design and one feminine design, to suit a bachelor or bachelorette lifestyle.

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.

To begin with a neutral palette, like this creamy sofa and rug ensemble, we can see that the series of swatches across the canvass picks up not only the paler hues, but works through the spectrum to tie in every shade right through to the black accent cushions. Of course, your wall art doesn't have to appear as a spectrum, but look for pieces that work all the way though your color story, from light to dark.

Home Decorating with Modern Art

Stunning examples of modern wall art, and how introducing it to your home design can work wonders.

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.

Russian Home Design: A Menagerie of Modern Hues

A Russian home that combines traditional ideas with modern minimalism.

A freestanding look is achieved in this kitchen, where a wooden crockery sideboard holds twin cookers. The wooden elements of the room are freshened by white cabinets, worktops and fridge-freezer.

Kitchens with Contrast

Use contrasting cabinets and countertops in your kitchen to add interest to the design.

Adding Life to the Living Room

Ideas to make your living room somewhere you'll want to lounge in.

The first apartment has the foundations of a monochrome dream, with striking black and white chevron rug, and snow-white sofa and accent chairs. However, as you wander a little further into the scheme warm notes appear in the form of purposefully placed red home accessories such as a large plant pot and a scattering of rosy vases in the display nooks of the built in bookcase.
