Built straight from a storybook, this fairy tale bedroom truly comes to life with a breathtaking frame designed to look like trees. From the whimsical rug to unique headboard, this design is remarkable and quite charming! We love that the patterned duvet of tree branches and blooms is reflected in the mural on the wall, giving the room a beautiful finish.
Do you have an old bike in the garage that’s simply gathering dust? Why not transform your bike and your bathroom into a conversation piece? Here, we see a modern design that uses the bicycle as a base rather than the standard cabinetry. With a top-of-the-counter sink and added storage with the basket, what more could you need?

As we all know, people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones, or so the saying goes. However, who wouldn’t want to live in this exotic beauty? A four-level glass design leaves little to the imagination in this home but we absolutely love the simplicity and elegance it brings not to mention the breathtaking landscape!
Fireplaces are usually pretty standard brick and mortar pieces with very little creativity outside of decorative mantle pieces or custom designs. However, this fireplace takes the cake with its design that looks straight out of a Tim Burton film. From the clawed base to the pointed openings and the wrapping chimney, we can’t get over this incredible yet functional design. We also love the mirror design in the stair railing!
From the stories of pirates in childhood fairytales, many children dream of living on pirate ships, flying through the air with fairies and avoiding alligators while crossing moats. This room brings such childhood dreams to life by creating a loft-like ship with a rope bridge and an underwater theme. Who would want to grow up with an amazing room like this?
We admit that installing hardwood floors and even tile is often a difficult chore for even the professionals, much less the novice do-it-yourself folks. Can you imagine how much planning would have to go into laying this floor? An incredible feat, we applaud the individuals who took the time to plan and lay this unique and gorgeous work of art!
As loft and apartment dwellers, you’ll never have to worry about a bad view again with these designed shades. Designed based on the view of your choice, you can pull these shades down during the day to create a unique view using the natural light. Or, you can pull them down at night for a city skyline that will make even the neighbors envious.
Often, when we think of wallpaper we think of vintage floral patterns or stripes, monochromatic color schemes or basic textures.

The gorgeous hardwood floors and the white couch make this outer space wall the true focal point, which works to make the room like bigger than before.
Very few people can say that they have a tree growing through their house. We actually found one of those people with this huge tree growing through the center of the home. This design seems completely intentional with the circular ceiling cutout that allows the tree and vines to climb to the upper levels. We love the simple design of the room and the natural lighting that complement the look nicely!
Never worry about tripping over something in the floor during one of the middle of the night treks to the restroom.

Whether a teen’s room or a child, we’re pretty sure this incredible design will be appreciated by many!
If you’re familiar with wood whether in terms of design and crafts to use in fireplaces, you know that it often splits in odd places and takes different shapes.

Almost every house needs extra storage. This design takes storage to a new level by incorporating functionality into design.

With a private staircase into a room above, this must be the greatest hideaway we have ever seen.
This room is the most peaceful and relaxing on our list with a sunk-in floor and plush seating. With hardwood floors and minimal décor, there are multiple focal points of the room.

Is that really a floor? That’s right. There is only one way to get into the other room and that’s by crossing this hallway that features a glass floor.
