From Mexico, one of the most stunning homes we have ever looked at!

It is difficult to impress me when it comes to spectacular, innovative architecture: when you spend a lot of time looking at stunning properties it is easy to become jaded.  However, this property in Mexico really made me turn my head: The glass walled living/dining area overlooks a understated water feature.  It seems almost incomprehensible […]

Something a little more simple …

For the most part on this Monday addition of the blog we look at spectacular properties from around the globe that we applaud for their beauty and style and, quite often, for their sheer enormity.  Today I thought we could consider a more simplistic home that exists on an island on the south coast of […]

Glass walls always do it for me!

I truly believe that you can’t lose when you install windows of this magnitude: instead of worrying about what wall-covering to put up you can have an ever changing view to stare at (save your funky wall-covering for another wall: you know how much we love them!).  Safe to say that if you agree with […]

A home in the desert …

If you were walking in the Californian desert with your water bottle almost empty I have no doubt that this fantastic home would look like a mirage: The desert is not for everyone but anyone who has seen one would struggle not to become bedazzled by its rugged beauty, enormity and unflinching power.  Much like […]
