Finally A Fence With Camouflage

Tired of the white, generic picket fences that line the streets of everyone's favorite idyllic suburbs? Then you might just love this mirror fence by artist Alyson Shotz. Granted, you probably won't want to install one where there are a lot of deer running around at full speed and you wouldn't want one in front of your house both because it's hardly durable and because keeping it spotless is a nightmarish task, but even so, it's a clever idea that is certain to catch they eye even as it blends in.

Big Brother Got A Facelift

Security cameras can be useful, but they also can look harsh and intimidating even to those who aren't doing anything wrong. It could just be our wariness of the whole Big Brother or just because boring black boxes are just plain ugly. Either way, turning security cameras into friendly-looking, cartoonish eyes is a delightful way to make them seem happier and more comforting. 

That's why we love this project  Fabrique did for Dutch Railways. They turn Big Brother into a happy, friendly security guard. 

Over at Homes and Hues, we take a look at this clever design and how the concept would help you in your own home: Who Says Security Cameras Need to be Boring

The Fitzroy House Takes Advantage of the Great Outdoors

This classic Melbourne home might not look like a modern masterpiece, but that's because the historic facade belies the spacious, airy expansion behind it. 

The top level offers an impressive outdoor patio and the massive door in the living room opens up the whole space into the garden. Similarly, the kitchen has a fold down window that serves as a bar for guests in the garden. It's a wonderful home for the warm climate of Australia and a striking contrast to the historical home you see on the street.

The Winged House is Seriously Sharp

With sweeping and unexpected lines throughout the home, the Winged House is a perfect design for modern Singapore. Built on a triangle-shaped plot of land around tall palm trees already on the property, the oddly-shaped home features a jutting roof inspired by the traditional Minangkabau roof style that is popular in Malay architecture.

The end result of the design by  K2LD Architects is a home that's totally modern while still honoring its Singaporean roots.

Trees On Your Sofa? Why Not?

Relaxing on a park bench under a tree is nice, but if you get home when it's already dark, you might not want to head over to the park and lay down on a bench (and even if you did, they might already be taken by other people laying down). Instead, you can always grab the Borghese by designer Noe Duchaufour Lawrance and manufacturer La Chance, which brings a little touch of nature into your home.

Bubbly People Will Love the Bubble Tank

No, that fish tank isn't spilling off the book shelf, that's just the way the clever blown glass design looks. Because the Bubble Tank, by Psalt Design, is designed to look like it is dripping off the surface where it is set, it only takes up about half the space that it looks like it should. 

Even if you don't really think fish bowls are good for fish, it still can be a cool home accessory to use as a terrarium or even just a storage bowl.

The Bucketlight Provides Light & Greenery

Indoor plants are great when it comes to adding some color and fresh air into a room, but they can also take up a lot of space. If you're looking to take advantage of the benefits of fresh plants without sacrificing floor room, then Dutch designer Roderick Vos  has you covered with these great Bucketlights. 

Each light features two pots fitted with seperate (thus waterproofed) LED lights and a reinforced electrical cord that allows it to all be connected to the roof, saving floor space and lighting up the room all at once.

This Sagging House Is Seriously Impressive

Looks like someone had a bad day, and that someone is a building in Cliftonville, England. Ok, so buildings can't really have a bad day, but after eleven years of abandonment, this structure wasn't doing very well and the renovation by artist Alex Chinneck didn't make it much better. But that's what's so great about it. It looks like the building's facade is actually sliding off the front of the building. Next year the building will be converted into council housing, but in the meanwhile, this art installation is a fun attraction.

You can check out all kinds of great photos of the building at Homes and Hues: This House Is In A Real Slump -And We Love It

Birdhouses Based on Airbnb Listings

Airbnb provides travels a great and local place to stay at a reasonable price while providing home owners with a good source of income and a way to meet new people. While most of the homes on the site are just your every day houses, there are some truly impressive ones as well. 

That's why it was so brilliant for the company to commission five different artists to create birdhouse versions of fifty of the site's best property listings.

While the Birdbnb site is down now due to a legal dispute with one of their competitors, you can still check out quite a few of them over on Homes and Hues: Birdhouses That Look Like Airbnb Listings

The Ultimate Full Size Cat Home

Personally, I would never spend $35,000 on a home rennovation to make a house better for my kitties, but hey, I would never own 18 cats either. If you're going to do those two things though, you couldn't hope for a better design than this amazing home in Goleta, CA  that was remodeled by Trillium Enterprises

The remodel might be a little crazy, but there's no denying that there are some seriously happy kitties living in this place.
