An unconventional structure brought to life by Jonathan Segal FAIA the luxurious Cresta residence in California pushes the boundaries of creativity to a whole new level.

Dare to be bold with your interior design?. While they may seem like unfinished business for your home decor concrete walls break up the form and accentuate a room with their sheer elegance and their unique personality.

What is the most important factor when trying to figure out what kind of home you would like to build? Landscape. As soon as you find a plot of land that embodies your inner self then without a doubt inspiration will come knocking on your doors even when you are least expecting it.
