Casa Sierra Leona: A Mexico City Tribute to Modernism

Posted: 19 Sep 2014 09:06 AM PDT

This stunning home from architect José Juan Rivera Río is located on the outskirts of the Mexico City sprawl. Built in 2014, the home takes its inspiration from the modernism of the 1960′s but puts its own beautiful modern twist on the style.

Located on the outskirts of Mexico City, in the Lomas de Chapultepec neighborhood (or colonia), the house is striking from all angles.

Luxurious Modern Cottage With Rich Warm Textures & Playful Kids’ Spaces

Posted: 18 Sep 2014 09:28 AM PDT

Far beyond a typical suburban house, this modern cottage, with an interior from Ukrainian design firm DA-Design, includes many unique and elegant touches. Each room, from an open dining and kitchen area, to a playroom that any child would beg for, is its own beautiful world.

At the same time, the designers have made the colors flow easily from one room to another so that the decor feels ultimately united and welcoming. Take a look.
