Nook Architects

Sometimes I crave simplicity. My life is pretty much non-stop work and the idea of coming home to a simple, raw, calm minimalist space really appeals to me. Of course, this will never ever happen but I can look at spaces and dream that I can live without stuff. Like this apartment by Barcelona's Nook Architects. LOVE the lighting/clothes rail strips, and the sections of hardwood flooring amidst the concrete (particularly when it joins into a bench).

Santa Maria del Cami

A little bit smaller than the last home, Santa Maria del Cami is a 450 sq m newly built country home also located in Mallorca and designed by AP Design. Ethnic decor has been replaced with more traditional furnishings but with a bit of contemporary accents thrown in to keep it from being stuffy. And WOW - that stone exterior is spectacular.

Villa Llucmajor

Villa Llucmajor is a stunning 750 sq m home on the Spanish island of Mallorca designed by Anja Peter of AP Design. A wonderful juxtaposition of a modern structure and ethnic decor. It's a slice of paradise that would be a wonderful escape from reality.

I was super excited to stumble upon the website of Austin, TX architects Andersson-Wise. Why you may ask? One of their projects just may be my future home (the home before the jump....well, a variation of it anyway, and minus the water view dammit). Their homes are rustic and modern and works of art. Each one a dream. Well, my dream anyway. And how cool is that house lined with wood stacks?

Pattersons is an architecture firm from New Zealand that is responsible for the creation of some really spectacular homes. Not too fussy or over the top, they specialize in modern designs but keep it simple and elegant. The sheep seem to approve. :)
