If you’re looking for a more unique place to lay your head on your next trip to London, look no further than the Boathouse London, a stylish floating hotel docked on a city canal. Created in partnership with home design brand Made, this bespoke botel and event space on the water was fashioned as “an industrial-style barge turned contemporary bolthole” with help from interior designer Katie Hanton. Kitted out in Scandinavian-inspired style, the chic getaway comes with customizable experiences, from a boat driver who can steer you around the canals to a special dinner prepared by a local chef.

Minarc has thrown their hat into the ring with their answer to California’s housing crisis – the Plús Hús, which is Icelandic for “plus house”. State regulations on ADUs (Accessory Dwelling Units), or “Granny flats”, have been loosened, meaning tiny houses can exist, which sent LA architectural firm Minarc to the drawing board. Their 16′ x 20′ structures are detached private units that are completely customizable allowing the buyer to use them for personal use or to turn into a rental. The Icelandic-inspired homes come flat-packed helping to reduce the cost of your future home office, guest house, rental apartment, yoga studio, or artist space.
