Favorite Room of the Day-Neutral Bedroom

We like colors most of the time, but we like neutral, quiet colors some of the times too.  It's calming, it's serene, and if you are surrounded by colors and patterns all day long like we are, it's a nice respite.

That's why we're liking this room today.  It's a little boring to some people, but aggh, sometime that's just what you need...

Crazy for Fuschia

We like using fuschia as an accent colors quite a bit lately.  It's not as timid as pink, not as loud as yellow, but  dramatic enough to make a splash.

Here are some of our faves:

Queens Park House in Sydney with Garden Design

Home designs Queens Park House in Sydney:
Dominating with white, white house looks very clean and luxurious. MCK architect has completed the project to remodel Queens Park House in Sydney, Australia.
The main concept of this white house is a room connected to the park. This concept is derived from the idea of openness and the elimination of divisions and barriers. The most important is the interior will extend into and become part of the park, such as going to the garden will be part of the interior. Early vision in the conceptual stage is one of the sitting room which is situated between lush plants and trees with a garden wall as a wall of the room.
By the time the garden will grow thicker and taller and contribute to the urban scale and provide an oasis for the owners. This house is very friendly environment with good solar access and lots of ventilation.

Minimalist home designs

Display is quite interesting house with a classic wood. Minimalist house normally never use wood for their walls, but Eva Street Residence are different, very unique design wooden houses. Minimalist house has a beautiful interior, with wood texture that creates a warm feel. Walls, floors and kitchen are made of wood composition. And the results of this project is a classic minimalist home. Eva Street Residence, located in Austin, Texas was designed by American architect Chris Cobb.
Classic interior design

Chris Cobb admitted that the biggest challenge of this project is also one of the greatest assets, a beautiful 150-year old oak tree that stood directly in the middle of the build-able property. Instead of cutting down, the house was built in a strong relationship with trees, protect homeowners without making them strangers in their neighborhood.
Staircase design classic

The solution is to create a multi-storey volume has strained the dynamic interaction of different heights involved and interact with trees, and slipping under the canopy which is defined by its outreaching branches. The house was dressed in weathering Brazilian Redwood siding and corrugated steel, which adds scale, texture, and the unification of the house with views of the surrounding area, while at the same time soften the geometry, sharp crisp structure. Wood cladding extends to the inside of the house, which is also defined by a dark brown bamboo floors, clean white walls, carefully custom made cabinets, and clean detail.

Design House Brings Green to Misa

Started by David Wax and his partner Ben Uyeda, FreeGreen is making green home designs free for everyone. 2005's Solar Decathlon blew us away, but we are fascinated by the amazing Solar House from Cornell University. This team brought home a beautiful zero-energy to the mall in Washington, DC, and has just launched ZeroEnergy Design, home design firm focused on zero-energy design. Continuing their momentum as green home design teacher, two of the Cornell Solar Decathlon team has just launched a new effort that aims to bring green design to the masses through a special innovative business model called FreeGreen.
FreeGreen provides a selection of green home design for free, with a variety of styles from traditional to modern. While the basic design for free, homeowners can take the process further and customize their designs with the cost (and very reasonable) extra. The cost of the design process, and free house plan, kept to a minimum through partnerships between FreeGreen and green building products manufacturer - paid placement from product manufacturers.

As homeowners consult with FreeGreen to design customized, they are introduced to healthy, energy efficient, sustainable products that sponsor FreeGreen's eco-companies. This is a collaborative win-win-win that introduces people to the principles of green building and products and allows consumers on any budget to have a custom-designed, green home.

In the end, FreeGreen is about providing people with options and knowledge to make decisions. Green building products are widely available, but sorting through various options, or even know where to look, is a daunting task for most new homeowners. Freegreen solving this problem by offering a very good green building consulting with little cost to the consumer. According to founder, "is the goal at FreeGreen not produce environmentally friendly home possible but rather to provide a variety of different home plans that allow people to create homes to suit their lifestyles in a responsible and fair."

FreeGreen launched this month began with several great designs including our favorite, The Loft Suburban, modern home suitable for all climates. Marked with an open floor plan and loft ceiling space, this design will be available in various sizes to meet a lot of lifestyle and landscape.

We think FreeGreen is a great idea and a wonderful way to bring information, innovation and green design options for everyone - We are very excited to announce the launch of FreeGreen "because green design should be accessible to all." [Via]

Best Wooden House by Jendretzki

This is the best timber home design. Located in Sag Harbor, New York, this project has been carried out by Jendretzki Design and Planning Consultants. The view is very natural around the house making it look very cool and comfortable to stay inside.
This house was redesigned from an existing house. The original house is an old traditional wooden house, but surrounded by beautiful nature. The owner will not change from the original concept of Home-Wooden, just remodel the old. The interior is very well connected to the exterior. There are several decks, terraces and stairs so that owners can easily stroll from almost every part of the house.
At night, this house is very exotic with all the classic lamps hanging on the porch posts. This view brings the owner into the past. our eyes will be spoiled with a beautiful view all day.

There is a window large enough around the house so that natural light can break into easily and owners can see the beautiful view from the room the entire house. All exterior wood work done with reclaimed-timber recycling.

Furniture design

Homes are environmentally friendly and uses high technology. It uses solar panels on the roof for electricity and rain water collection system.
