If you're giving serious thought to asking your architect to design you a brand new home, we think you really need to see some of the stunning, simple yet striking homes that have already been built!
We just know that each of these designs will offer inspiration in spades, as despite being deceptively basic in their construction, they all have stunning features that make the façades really shine.
