Casa de Vidro by Cristina Menezes

How to turn a 60 square metre glass pavilion into a characterful home?  Brazilian architect Cristina Menezes shows us how with this beautiful show house in Belo Horizonte, designed to showcase Brazilian style. 

She created a surprisingly warm interior space despite the cool structure of the pavilion by adding layers of textures, from the dark hardwood floor to the leather chairs and sumptuous floor-to-ceiling curtains.  The furniture combines a sleek modern edge with a natural touch and are well complemented by accessories in natural materials as well as plenty of plants, both inside and outside.  We particularly like design flourishes such as the round floor mirror by the bed and the rocky wall of the bathroom.  This is a beautifully intimate house, full of charm and personality, a great example of contemporary Brazilian design.

Shutter House by State of Kin

Japanese zen style goes far beyond minimalist white spaces. It is about thoughtful spaces which encourage the contemplation of light, colours, textures and shapes - the building blocks of nature and beauty. The Shutter House in Perth is a great example.

Terrazzo Things from Lick My Brick

There was a time when the use of marble was largely restricted to floors, posh kitchen counters and grave statutes. And then, at some point around the mid-noughties, marble was everywhere. Could the same be happening to terrazzo?
