Even your switch covers can transform a home’s overall ambiance – and chevron makes it a happy one. When you don’t know how to decorate, go with mirrors. Giving any room more light and the illusion of more space, with a bout of chevron you’ll get everything you need in one piece. Your home office or crafting space should speak of you personality and style as well. Choose desk organizers with a playfulness that evokes a sense of you, like these chevron-covered ones!

Since we just mentioned cushions and how great they are, consider making your own accent cushions. There are so many great designs and ideas you can explore. You can have them customized in an infinity of ways, using colors, textures, various fabrics, stencils, painting techniques and lots of other tricks. When decorating a space in your home, focus on you and your lifestyle and not only on the final look. If you’re the type that enjoys friendly gatherings and having people over for drinks, board game nights or simply for chatting and spending time together, focus on comfort and on providing suitable seating options for everyone. A large sectional can often solve the problem. You can complement it with individual chairs, poufs, floor pillows and other things.

This can be applied to a lot of things, including artwork, light fixtures, furniture and numerous decorations. A large painting displayed on one of the walls in your living room will create an interesting focal point for the space. You can use this strategy to direct the attention toward key elements and parts of the room. For example, display an oversized pendant lamp above the dining table to draw the attention to that specific spot, diminishing the visual impact of everything else around.

It’s a house designed by ODOS Architects with cantilevers and bright spaces that open to the landscape and invite the outdoors in. Every project has its own set of challenges. In the case of this home in Chile, the challenge was to position it at the center of the plot and to give it the smallest possible footprint and a low height. Mobil Arquitectos came up with the idea to shape the house like a croissant and to give it large windows and glass walls so it feels open and connected to the exterior.

It offers a view inside the pool and it lets light filter through the water. As far the aesthetics go, the standard color of the pools is black but those interested can also request a specific color. The pools can be installed both above and in-ground so a lot of details depend on the type you choose. Only two service connections are required when installing the pool: natural gas/propane for the heater and 40 amp electrical service and designated ground wire. The cost depends on the size of the pool and ranges between $26,900 and $35,000. The pools are customizable in a lot of ways and they also offer the option to control all the settings via smartphone using an app. This includes settings such as the temperature, the lighting and the jets. Costumers can also choose from a variety of different types of covers for their container pool, ranging from simple snap button models to electronically-controls covers that are also child-proof and retractable.

This house designed by Martin Gomez Arquitectos is a very good reflection of this idea. It’s located in Punta del Este, in Uruguay. In order to be able to frame these beautiful views, studio Element Arkitekter AS designed this house in Rogaland, Norway with a rather odd-looking top floor that’s partially cantilevers and resembles a periscope. Up here, a glazed wall overlooks the water and the land in the distance.

This three-story family home in Pliezhausen, close to Stuttgart, is one of those cases. The house was designed by Steimle Architekten who gave it an unusual crystal-like shape. The unusually angled concrete facades offer an unexpected advantage: wonderful views of the surroundings. It’s a design that opens the house to the outdoors in an unusual but great way.

Making a house look natural in its setting, as if it organically grew on the plot is no easy task yet architect Tatiana Bilbao did a great job when designing this family home in Mexico City. The project is actually a collection of five-sided concrete blocks that seem to naturally emerge from the hillside. They offer panoramic views towards Monterrey as each block is strategically oriented to capture and frame different parts of the landscape.
Huguetta Pasquier Exterior, 2017-05-19 08:56:35. The street facade is covered in fireproof timber and has a very understated and simple look. There’s a small private courtyard in front, sort of like a buffer zone between the internal spaces and the street. The wood on the facade is stained and has a rich finish which contrasts with the galvanized steel elements. The North facade, the one facing the river, has a totally different structure. This is an all glass facade which doesn’t exactly give much privacy but, at the same time, exposes the internal spaces to the expansive views. The glass also contributes to an overall look that’s robust on one hand but also open and airy on the other hand. Such contrasts are actually quite common with this project.

It’s a project by Pascual Architecte who designed it with large glass doors that open up the living spaces to the garden and also with a large circular skylight carved out into the terrace roof. The skylight is an unexpected and unusual detail. It opens the outdoor spaces to views of the sky and it also brings more light into the kitchen, which is welcomed especially in winter. What’s especially beautiful about this house is the dialogue between the concrete and the wood, two materials that complement each other in a really great way.
