Inspired by history and tradition, this 402.37 square metre home is a true piece of the Mediterranean, melding peacefully with the beautiful natural landscape. Created by architectural firm Beef Architekti, this luxury home in Mallorca is respectfully built from local stone to follow along with the traditional stone towns on the island. The stone facade helps to maintain a cool temperature during the summertime and helps accumulate heat in the winter months. Inside the residence, the stone walls become an attractive rustic aesthetic that gives the house a sense of security and permanence. Modern furniture and eye-catching lighting installations shape a contemporary decor scheme with elements of natural wood, rattan, and glass.

Dhrangadhra yellow stone and exposed concrete build this wonderful single-story modern rustic home in Gujarat, Ahmedabad, India. Designed by Snehal Suthar and Bhadri Suthar of tHE gRID Architects, the 1100 square foot home is a single-story dwelling that was created as an intimate, modest weekend getaway. The cosy interior design marks a relationship between manmade and natural materials, featuring beautiful reclaimed wood, jute and rope, mild steel, and entire walls of clear glass. A tonal limestone floor created with Kotah slabs smooths easily onto a paved terrace. These earthy, local materials plus local workmanship meant that the build of the home had a reduced carbon footprint, which was significant to the owner.

A free-flowing layout creates a connected sense of family in this 112 square metre apartment project in the south of Moscow, Russia. Designed by Julia Khabarova, for a young couple with a child, the home was created to include an autonomous master block that avoids the inclusion of dead ends around the main living spaces. A central “cube” forces new scenarios of movement around the apartment in answer to an immovable riser. The material palette of slatted oak veneer, suede upholstery, cool concrete and reflective metals create an earthy aesthetic, alongside tonal shades of grey and warm umber accents. The full floor plan is included at the end of the tour.

A sassy sense of style runs through the two individualistic home designs that we tour here. Our first intriguing home tour takes place in a meticulous restoration of a large 5-bedroom townhouse, which features beautifully restored woodwork, custom details and around 8,000 square feet of light-filled interiors. Colourful artwork and an eclectic furniture collection shape living spaces that draw the eye and excite the mind. The second home design we visit is a loft, located in the historic Gilsey House building in the NoMad neighbourhood of Manhattan. Industrial features hark to its history, whilst bold art pieces, colourful accents and a bespoke staircase design make the loft into a marvellously modern and uplifting home.

Fabulous originality and inventiveness has gone into the creation of this extraordinary house design. Visualised by UDesign, this house is not only a luxury home but a work of art. From the outside entryway of the home with its dramatically aligned trees to the explosion of colour that awaits behind the door, this unique residence is designed for someone who loves to entertain, to impress, and who revels in the joys and discoveries of art. The tropical landscape also plays a major role within the superb interior, where it taps up against edge-to-edge windows and translates into sculptural indoor plants. The greenery joins a powerful palette of brights that paint energised and uplifting settings throughout.
