This Cool Dome-Shaped House Only Cost $9,000 to Build and Furnish

A 500 square-foot home isn't huge, but when you live in a tropical paradise like a Thai mango plantation, you don't need much to be comfortable -especially when your tiny home even comes equipped with a small pond and a gazebo. 

Impressively, Steve Areen built this home for only $9,000 -including the impressive stonework and furnishings inside. It's also made from locally sourced concrete and clay bricks although Areen now hopes to build more dome houses that are even more sustainable with pressed earth bricks.

Adoring the Angles of the North Star Apartments

What's in an angle? Not just great style, that's for sure. The North Star Apartments in Slovakia prove that with their stunning lines that not only look wonderful, but also help keep the residents cozy in their homes. 

The striking balconies manage to reflect light into the windows while similtaniously blocking out traffic noise and providing residents with a little extra privacy. Of course, it doesn't hurt that the building looks fantastic.

Stairs, Shelves, A Cupboard and A Desk All-In-One

Staircases are critical in homes that have more than one story, but  they can also be a serious drain on space. In an effort to make the most of the staircase, designer Just Haasnoot commissioned Dutch design studio Mieke Meijer to create a staircase that combines the functionality of stairs, shelves, a desk and a cupboard. The end result is a great place to work that provides a lot of much needed storage all while serving as a staircase at the same time. 

You can see all kinds of other great pictures of the staircase and more information about it at Homes and Hues: A Staircase, A Storage Unit and A Desk In One

Sun, Trees and Comfort Rule At the MIL Metal House

If you live beside a forest in Santiago, Chile, you likely want to stay cool during those hot summer days, but you also don't want to be pumping the AC all day long, nor do you want your house to stick out like a sore thumb. Luckily, the MIL Metal House by Max Ibañez and Claudio Iabarca addresses all of those concerns while still providing a stunning home with ample natural lighting and spectacular views of the forest.

By insulating the walls, using cool wood, metal and concrete for building materials, stretching the roof to provide extensive shade and adding a reflective coating to the windows, the house beautifully fits in with its surroundings all while providing natural comfort to its residents.

Check out more cool pictures over at Homes and Hues: Enjoy the sun, the Sky and the Trees with the MIL Metal House

The delightful designs are easy to use -just plug them into the wall and then plug your cords into the nose. Sure they're a little pointless, but aren't framed photos, fancy door handles and stained glass windows for that matter?

Fortunately, with this cool shadow chandelier, you don't need to deal with that problem as it's totally DIY and made from cardboard. Not only is it a practically free design addition, but you can even recycle it when you're done.

The Delightful Haunted Mansion Guest Room

We've featured some fantastic dream homes on Homes and Hues, but this is the first time we've covered a single room that has been done in one amazing theme. This delightful Haunted Mansion room features many of the great details we love from the Disney attraction. 

From the door hanger to the throw pillows to the curtain hanger, this room is loaded with Haunted Mansion goodies we simply adore. In fact, I kind of wish this room was available for rent on Airbnb because I would totally stay there before traveling to the real Haunted Mansion.

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.
