Comfortable cabins set in nature’s lap are indeed a great way to spend a memorable holiday and definitely help when it comes to escaping the hustle and the rush of the monotonous city life. And while traditionally the mental image of a cabin set in a lush green outback is of a structure clad and crafted out of wood the Swinomish Indian Reserve cabin breaks away from that trend. This dramatically distinct cabin has been clad largely in glass and pretty much looks like one giant ‘glass house’ which enables you to stay connected with nature at all times.
But that seems to fit perfectly with the plan as the three floors of the home offer three unique living spaces with each having a very specific goal. The ground level is for the children and it opens up into a beautiful patio area and houses plenty of room for kids to play around. A wonderful walkway in stone combined with stairs graces the area above the pool and adds to the uniqueness of the house.
This also promises plenty of natural light and freshness brought in by each new dawn and with a grand patio and refreshing pool there are plenty options to kick back and relax after a long day’s work. The high ceiling with a striking design not only gives the interiors a spacious look but also offers the home a regal touch.
While she happily admits that most of her work is intuition her designs seem both warm and exuberant and away from the modern trend of minimalism. Of course if needed Melissa Collison can work with that style as well … as some of the pictures showcase.
It is amazing how modern designers and architects are integrating seamlessly different styles and design ideas to create contemporary homes that are not just sleek and stylish but also warm and inviting. That seems to be precisely what the travel aficionados Colin and Carolina Cormac wanted for their new home in Southern California and the pair approached Craig Schultz of Laidlaw Schultz Architects to turn their vision into reality. While one of them wanted a sleek modern and minimalistic look the other wanted a warm look that is captured by wooden surfaces and vibrant colors.
This stylish home located in Ramat Hasharon — a city on Israel’s central coastal strip in the south of the Sharon region — is all about living it up in an ultra0cool fashion. Designed by Levy-Chamizer Architects the home does its best to ensure that the lines between the exterior and the interior are blurred by using floor-to-ceiling glass windows.
They say that all work and no play makes one go dull and pale. But at the home of Lisa and Michael Rubenstein there is pretty much of things taking a turn towards the dull and the mundane. This beautiful modern home by TRG Architects is not only a delight to live in with its plush interiors that are clad in cozy comfort but even the outdoors is equally appealing. It brings out the fun-filled kid in everyone with its lush green backyard that provides ample space for outdoor activities.
