The shapes and sizes of most homes have changed drastically over a thousand years, but there’s one thing that has always remained the same. We’re talking about our desire to create sophisticated interiors that are approachable and comfortable to live in. The interiors, furnishings, and architectural marvels you’re about to see will knock your socks off. And although some of these rooms will make you cringe because they’re so out of our price range, you might be able to get some ideas to improve your home’s Feng Shui. Now obviously, some of these people had plenty of time and money to turn a basic room into something complex, but there’s always a way to keep it budget-friendly if you DIY some pieces, visit the local flea market, or wait for a great bargain on Ebay. So take a look and prepare to be inspired on your next decor project!You’ll feel like Fred Flintstone as you and the family lay on a bunch of pillow-type cushions on the floor, while bonding over a blockbuster film on the wall. This brings a whole new meaning to term “home entertainment.”

The Nojiri-ko Nature Platforms make this architectural piece a stunning one. There’s virtually no privacy and everyone can pretty much talk to each other or keep to themselves.
