Car Shaped House in Austria!!

This car shaped house near Salzburg, Austria has got to be one of the most creatively designed homes ever! The Voglreiter Auto Residence was designed by Markus Voglreiter. He took a 70’s style house and transformed it into a Beetle-esque 900 square foot, 3 story home for his family.
Years after creating his Auto Home, Markus designed a restaurant/bar with a very similar exterior! Read about the restaurant here!

W Retreat in Thailand!!

Oh my! Can we please talk about how incredible this place looks!! W Hotels are known for their luxurious accommodations and stylish decor and the W Retreat in Koh Samui (by MAPS Design) is no exception. Fantastic views of the gorgeous landscape abound and glistening waters surround you. Enjoy a spa day, curl up with a book in the W library or take a nap on an outdoor lounger by the pool. On my long list of places to visit!
