In this house by architects Denton Corker Marshall one story is perilously balancing on top of and perpendicular to the other providing a form that is both dramatic and distinctive. View Hill House looks across the Yarra Valley winemaking region of Victoria in south eastern Australia.
The dining room and the kitchen embrace the muted color scheme of the living area with additions such as the Series 7 chairs and industrial-style lighting providing some much needed visual contrast. The unfinished texture of the walls also helps in breaking away from the monotony with a small nursery bedroom and bathroom completing this breezy home.
The dark slate walls create a visual contrast indoors even as decor rugs and accessories usher in bright pops of color in a restrained fashion. The lower level houses the living area along with the family room kitchen and dining space while the bedrooms and bathrooms sit on the top floor.
Wrapping together refined modernism with distinct Midcentury elegance in a cloak of concrete and wood the in Brazil exudes a style of its own. Designed by Studio mk27 & Galeria Arquitetos the contemporary home has a cozy inviting ambiance that brings together a contrasting array of textures.
The decor inside the home seems to showcase a seamless blend of the vintage the midcentury and the contemporary as each room has a subtle touch of contrasting styles. A small entry leads into the living room that is filled with a couple of cozy sofas in off-white along with a smart blue rug that brings color and playfulness to the setting. The restrained use of color lets the few accent additions and the wall art shine through while the twin windows fill the space with plenty of natural light.

This modular German cabin by allergutendinge can be disassembled and reassembled so it can be transported from one location to another. There’s a dining area on the first floor and a sleeping loft in the middle. The top opens to the sky.
