One of my all-time favorite design books is written in 1986 and packed with amazing photos showcasing the latest in urban design from the ’80s. The book was given to my husband and me when we moved to our new place and I’ve returned to it time and time again when brainstorming design ideas for our home. Even though the book is now decades old there are some timeless images that speak to popular loft style: the chic modern vibe the industrial look and the artist’s dwelling.
Large glass windows and doors connected the upper levels seamlessly with the extravagant terraces walkways and patios outside. The interior of the house matches the panoramic views outside in its grandeur as plush decor and contemporary design style win you over.
The extravagant home features a two-level swimming pool with waterfall and a sleek minimal outdoor fireplace that is flanked by plush modern seating options in pristine white. A large glass railing offers safety without blocking the breathtaking scenery on view while a stylish pergola on the far side offers ample shade on a sunny California day.
A great example of modern minimalism and Japanese design the T-House in Kyoto has been put together by the creative minds from Atelier Boronski. The house favors an interior based mostly on black and white with concrete walls that are beautifully finished turning this vast space into a real spectacle.
The key to getting this look: an subtle industrial vibe a striking contrast of dark and light and an abundance of thoughtful details. This style is anything but minimalist and stark. Warmth comes from the personal touches such as a coffee table ornament with an interesting history or a sculptural art piece that adds modern flair.
With a solar chimney reducing the use of both heating and cooling systems energy bills of this ingenious house are a lot less when compared to other conventional homes. A large living room modern kitchen and dining space are housed alongside a private bedroom that offers direct access to the courtyard.
