This V4 house in Sao Paolo, Brazil, by MK27 studio is a cool example of modern architecture and design. The house is one-storied though very broad; there’s a vast concrete roof above it. The public living spaces are delineated by four slender columns, wrapped in retractable glass doors to immerse the inhabitants of the house in the outdoor environment. Now, enjoy the interiors: warm colors, modern style and bright accents. An interesting feature is wicker furniture, juicy green armchairs to make an accent and a small hearth in the center of the room. The interior is mostly minimalist but with unusual details and lines.

Eclectic of styles always looks good if they mix well and don’t look abundant. This apartment in Stockholm is done in a mix of styles but it looks cozy and charming. The furniture is mid-century, there are some rustic and vintage pieces – have a look at this cute sideboard with a flower pattern. There are smart space-saving solutions like a big shelves system on the wall or drawers in the bed. The color scheme is light and very pleasant: the main color is white, there are some black and colorful touches like yellow or pink, they don’t overwhelm the look. Plants and flowers in blossom give a romantic touch and bring coziness to the space.
