Nestled in the richest coastal region of Phuket Thailand, stands a four story luxury villa waiting to be occupied by the most fortunate dreamers. Thailand’s own architect Charupan Wiriyawiwatt created a heavenly retreat hosting a bedroom suite on every floor that boasts it’s own seascape deck with front row seats to the Andaman Sea. With a gorgeous open plan kitchen, living and dining area you can entertain while luxuriating for your entire stay if you wanted to! The interiors are dressed in modern contemporary furnishings and dazzled with rich colorful accents that remind you (in case you forget) you are surrounded by the lushest tropics on the island. Check out these breathtaking spaces and feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.
Styles that possess polar elements like natural and faux, traditional and modern, warm and cool colors, glossy and rugged textures usually create a harmonious ambiance. This always evokes a sense of comfort and interest within a space. These living rooms from Natuzzi’s 2010 collection are all unique in their own right but do share a common thread- opposing trends. This Italian furniture company provides custom furniture and interior solutions while creating casually elegant silhouettes for irresistible living. The pairing of clean lines with funky textural elements and contrasting lights with dark’s create a fashionable impression and are inspiring at best. Take a look for yourself!
These bathroom designs by Neutra are pretty inspiring as they give us a stylish perspective on the fusion of traditional and modern materials.

It’s official- the wall decal is the new mural! These popular graphics are fun, witty, and technically “green” because they are easily applicable and transferable. In our search for creative office spaces, we found the offices of Third Frame Studios to demonstrate just how clever these décor concepts can be. Slovenian firm Zek designed the graphics which are slightly geeky in nature to bring the rooms a focal point by dressing up the vibrant office walls with playful images. Although it is questionable whether all this colorful art is stimulating work productivity, they certainly make it an amusing work environment with each statement!
House boats have traditionally been an alternative lifestyle for those irresistably drawn to a water bound lifestyle. This subculture of boat dwellers either work in the fishing industry or living on a budget have simply have made their humble boat a home.

This completely original boat home seems a bit different than your typical houseboat so we explored it inside and out for a better understanding of this popular phenomenon. And now we’re taking you on a personal tour…hope the owners don’t mind!
Situated in Oldenberg, Germany, this boat was named “Silberfisch” which means Silverfish and its making a big splash for its modern dexterity and unique shape.
The design firm, Confused Direction, clearly decided not to waste any space. Hey, a house is not a home unless complete with proper roof deck and garden! Brilliant…
The modern interiors equipped with tons of natural light and simple white decor keep an open feel to this compact space.

With the insurgence of folks starting their own businesses or simply working out of their homes, HD decided it is only appropriate that we feature some inspiring home offices to get your entrepreneurial spirits going.
