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.

Cover Your Walls In Dragon Scales

Over on Homes and Hues, we feature a lot of cool home designs, but so far, the site has been sadly absent of decor that can make your interior resemble a dragon's scales. Today we have remedied that with the introduction of the Ginkgo Acoustic Panels, a modular wall accessory that not only improves the acoustics in your room, but also spruces up the walls. The designs are cool and can be arranged in all number of patterns, but Game of Thrones, Hobbit and other fantasy fans will join me by expressing their excitement over the green and yellow panels being assembled in a design that makes your wall look like the side of a dragon.

The Bridge House Makes All The Right Connections

The point of a vacation home is to help people get away from it all while getting to spend time with their friends and family members. While most vacation homes do a fine job of this, the houses themselves are just regular old residences reserved for the family's trips. The family who hired Gluck + to design their Bridge House wanted something different though -something that would reinforce the house's role is building relationships.

The end result does exactly this by seamlessly blending styles and connecting spaces and structures to one another. Read how the materials and design reflect the building's purpose in building connections and see more great pictures at Homes and Hues: The Bridge Home Bridges the Gap Between Modern Design and Rustic Charm

This Magician-Inspired Closet Is Purely Magical

On the outside, Rafael Morgan's Deadly, Multipurpose Closet looks like a cute take on the classic magic trick that involves placing an assistant in a box and then shoving swords through her, but it's the inside of the closet that really makes it magnificent.

That's because this clever design allows you to use the swords to totally customize the storage space inside. They can be arranged as shelves for clothes, CDs, shoes or books, or you can space them out more and use them as rods to hang your clothes from. As anyone without much storage can tell you, being able to space things out as much or as little as you want really is magical.

The Most Comfortable Way to Sleep Under the Stars

Over at Homes and Hues, we already showed you a great selection of designs inspired by nature, but if you just can't get enough, here's another fantastic option - Natalia Rumyantseva's Cosmos Bed. As you can see in the image, the cool egg-shaped bed features lights offering you a lovely view of the night sky, but that's not all. It also has a built-in alarm, a sound system that can play relaxing sounds to lull you to sleep and it can even pump aromas into your sleeping space to make sure you can dream about that wonderful camping trip you took as a teenager without having to deal with all the bug bites and sleeping on the cold, hard ground.
